Falling in love with God
creates warm, wonderful emotions
that make every day better!
This page is a transcript from a "Creating Great Relationships radio show."
I believe that everyone visiting this page has either been in love or has seen someone who is in love.
So how would you describe a person in love?
Certainly they are different from everyone else. They seem to float instead of walk. Some seem to be in a different dimension. Every moment of the day is spent dreaming of that person – that person who is far above all other persons.
Being in love can make you feel like you have just been existing before.
When you are in love, life seems more wonderful. Life seems more real. Colors seem more brilliant.... more vibrant.
Everyday things seem fresh and new. Most people in love have a new fascination with the moon.
Many sing love songs that they never sang before.
Each one longs to spend every available moment together.
I have an important announcement for each of you.
God wants everyone listening to this show to experience being in love with HIM – being in love with the God of all creation.
It is true that it won't be exactly the same as with a human person. But many of the manifestations are similar. When you allow yourself to fall in love with the King of Kings and Lord of Lords, you begin to have times when you float through life - especially when you allow yourself to fully worship him.
Falling in love with God means...
I have noticed that as I have fallen in love with the Lord, colors appear more brilliant more vibrant. Nature grabs my attention as never before. The daytime sky with its clouds and the nighttime sky with its stars becomes more awesome. I take on a new fascination with the moon.
Falling in love with God means....
I find myself suddenly bursting out with love songs to God. I sing words of love and adoration over and over to him.
Yes, I may look goofy sometimes - but the more goofy I look, the more incredibly wonderful I feel. I stand in amazement that I can choose to have a relationship with the Creator of the world! Sometimes I just sit and think about the incredible invitation God has given me. God wants ME to know him.
I find it interesting and important that the Bible tells me to delight myself in God. I find it fabulous that God delights in me.
It is breath taking to realize that the
Creator of all things is in love with me.
Not in a human way......
but the divine way has many similar characteristics.
The Bible says in Zephaniah 3:17 that God sings over me. He gets so excited about me that he sings over me. In fact, he is madly in love with me. And folks, he is madly in love with you. He wants you to feel toward him like he feels toward you. He longs for you to stop and talk with him. He longs for you to see the glorious things that he has put in your life – as gifts.
God loves me and he loves you and he wants us to love him. God delights in me – and he delights in you.
The enemy of our soul wants you to think that you aren't special enough to have that kind of relationship with God. But he is a liar. He tries to keep our self-concept so low that we believe that we can never reach out and have a great relationship with God.
Can you imagine having a friend that you love and want to spend time with but that friend just doesn't think he or she is special enough to be with you.
What would that do to you if you had a tender, loving heart toward that person?
If we let God, he will lavish his love on us. And yes, he also wants us to lavish love on him.
Music is usually a part of being in love.
When I spoke this Bible devotion on my "Creating Great Relationships" radio show, I played the song, "Everything" at this point.
That song stirs up that “in love” feeling I have about God.
As I hear it, I fall deeper in love with God.
Next, I told my audience:
Since each of us likes different music. I encourage you to find songs that make you fall deeper and deeper in love with God. If this one doesn't do it for you, I encourage you to find one that will.
After the song, I prayed an “in love” prayer to God. You can find that prayer on our Intimacy with God page.
If you love this page, you will probably love our Father's Love page.
