Scarcely had I passed them when I found the one my heart loves. I held him and would not let him go till I had brought him to my mother’s house, to the room of the one who conceived me. Song Of Solomon 3:4
Finding someone that someone loves is a great thing. People will find the ‘perfect’ one for them to love. Often this takes a lot of time and patience waiting to find that person, but once found, they are happy. They will grab onto that person and hold on tight, never wanting to be separated.
This is done out of love for the person. It will often cause a person to do crazy things for the one he loves. All the person can think about is being with the one he loves.
Solomon paints a picture of a lady finding the one she loves after searching for some time and being unable to find him. When she does find him, she holds on tight and won’t let him go wanting intimacy with him.
While this can be seen in relationships between a man and a woman, this can also true in the relationship between a person and God. When a person begins to believe in Jesus, there is a close relationship with God that has begun.
The true love that God has for a person draws a person closer to Him. It can cause the person to want to hold on tight and not let Him go.
This should cause a believer to want to get closer to God than ever before, to get intimately close to God. Allowing God into the bedroom for exposure to everything within one’s life.
Holding onto God like this will cause a person to turn from sin in order to be closer to Him. God becomes his whole focus in life.
What is your greatest love in your life? Is it the things of this world, or is it God?
Seek to draw closer to God and get closed into the secret place with Him. Allow yourself to be fully exposed to His gaze, so that you can also see Him clearly and know Him more.
Make Jesus your first love in your life. As you do that God will hold all else together for you in His way and in His time. You will find eternal love and peace. God is there for you and is not against you. Hold on to Him tightly.
I pray today that you will know the salvation Jesus provides; that you will know the love of God; that you will love God with all of your life; and that you will hold on to with all that within you.
