My beloved is mine, and I am his. He feeds his flock among the lilies. Song of Solomon 2:16 NKJV
Believers of all ages have benefited from this beautiful love story. People are reminded of God’s intense love for them. We are given God’s ideal for true love within marriage.
A woman shared the gospel with a man sitting next to her on an airplane. God touched his heart. He made the decision to give his heart to Jesus. She gave him her worn and marked up bible. He asked her why she would give away something so special to her.
Her response was, “sometimes God pauses. He takes time out from His busy schedule to intervene in people’s lives. God is pausing to intervene in your life today.”
My family and I moved into a new home. Painters left the doors open. There was a hummingbird inside. I caught it.
I carried that hummingbird in my hand. I went outside. I opened my hand so it could fly away but it did not move. I was horrified. I thought I had harmed it. I threw it up into the air. It flew away. I was so thankful that beautiful little bird was not hurt.
I believe God sent that hummingbird just for me. It was a special blessing given to me by my Heavenly father. It was a reminder of how much God loves me!
Whenever I see a hummingbird I am reminded that I am God’s beloved.
God takes the time to express His love for me in unique and special ways because I am unique and special to Him. Sometimes when I have a bad day God will send a hummingbird just for me. The memory of God’s love brightens up my day!
Trials and hardships fade from view when I remember God looks upon me as His beloved. Jesus takes time out of His busy schedule to send me a special visitor with a special spiritual note attached that says, “My dear child I love you, love God!”
We see the things we look for.
God wants you to love Him with all your heart, with all your soul, with all your mind and with all your strength!
If you look for the love of God you will find Jesus. You may find the love of God in the most unusual places. Maybe a little bird will whisper, “My dear child I love you, love God!”
If you have been born again by God’s grace through faith in Jesus Christ you are God’s beloved. The Lord wants you to receive His love with joy and thanksgiving!
God is never too busy or distracted to focus His love and attention on you. Take time out from your busy schedule to focus your love and attention on Jesus today!
