Close your heart to every love but mine; hold no one in your arms but me. Love is as powerful as death; passion is as strong as death itself. It bursts into flame and burns like a raging fire. Water cannot put it out; no flood can drown it. But if any tried to buy love with their wealth, contempt is all they would get (Song of Songs 8: 6-7 Good News Translation).
Love is a powerful emotion. It is described here as a raging fire that cannot be put out with a flood of water and any attempt to buy love with wealth is contemptible. Moses encountered a burning bush that could not be consumed, so he turned aside to look at it. God saw that Moses came closer, so He called out to him and sent him on one of the greatest missions recorded in the Bible. God provided the miracles to achieve his awesome mission.
True love challenges us to achieve the impossible. He provides the power through Holy Spirit.
Ever wonder why Jesus said that nothing is impossible with God? Nothing is impossible with love. Jesus demonstrated the love of God by healing all that came to him. He died so we might be in loving relationship with Him. We can live in God’s love and walk in healing and wholeness. Do you believe this?
God is love and in perfect love there is no fear (see 1John 4). Are you afraid of your Father in heaven? You can come out of the darkness and into to the light of God’s tremendous everlasting love. Do you want to see and experience this love?
Come closer in humility to the passionate God whose love is a fire that cannot be consumed. This is holy ground.
Trust Jesus to bring you closer to your heavenly Father. Will he send you on a mission? Maybe, but not without the power to achieve success.
Trust in His Love.
