Lost in His Love

During this time of the year, we see pink and red wreaths hung up and roses sold wherever we go. With the air abuzz with talk of love and romance, let us take a moment to reflect on the greatest love we will ever know in our lives.

           For your Maker is your husband,
The Lord of hosts is His name;
And your Redeemer is the Holy One of Israel;
He is called the God of the whole earth.
(Isa 54:5)

Regardless of our relationship status, we all have a loving husband in our God who created us. With earthly “significant others,” we will sometimes have misunderstandings and our mutual weaknesses limit us from a perfect love.

But it is not so with our God.

For only through Him do we know what love is (1 Jn 3:16). He understands us completely. He does all things with our best interests at heart. And He is always faithful to us, even when we are not.

Our careers, other ambitions, enjoyments, and other people can at times pull our hearts away from God. But even then, He remembers us. He remembers the time – likened to a time of a betrothal or engagement – when we ran after Him, pursued Him even in the wilderness (Jer 2:2). When we made a commitment to Him, determined to ever follow Him, despite the difficulties we would face. Those were the days in which we read His words with wide eyes and an eager heart, not to fulfill a certain number of chapters. And those were the days in which we savored our conversations with Him, sharing everything with Him in prayer and feeling the depth of the love He reciprocated.

If it feels as if it’s been a long time since those cherished moments with our beloved Husband, let us recommit ourselves and find our way back to the One who loves us most.
