How many books have on the subject of relationships filled library shelves? How many seminars, classes, and retreats are designated to begin, boost or reboot interaction between people?
I wonder, does God do those kinds of things? Does He purposely work on our relationship with Himself? Well, let’s consider if there are indications that He does.
As we wake in the morning, He whispers in our ear
My love for you is never-ending! I will protect you from what seeks your destruction. I promise to forever be faithful to you. My mercies begin again this very day, and your inheritance that puts us together forever is safe, for you can trust Me. (Lamentations 3:22-24)
I open the heavens of love through celestial bird songs, to remind you that I am near. I love brushing your hair with the wind as it sweeps by, and kissing your cheek with the sun’s ray. We will sit together by still waters, and I will restore for good what was meant to do you harm. (Psalm 23/Romans 8:28)
I have set aside, as special, a time for us to meet. I am here, faithfully, every day, so I can talk with you and you with me with no outside distractions. In joyful communion, we renew our vows, one to the other, as you rest on me. (Hebrew 4:1)
I have arranged all you need, whether monetary, physical, or spiritual. It’s there, waiting for your acceptance. Oh, it may not be just what you would choose. But the beauty of these gifts is that I know exactly what you need and what will bring you the most joy. (Exodus 3:13,14)
And when you sleep at night, I have commissioned angels to watch over you.
1-13 You who sit down in the High God’s presence,
spend the night in Shaddai’s shadow,
Say this: “God, you’re my refuge.
I trust in you and I’m safe!”
That’s right—he rescues you from hidden traps,
shields you from deadly hazards.
His huge outstretched arms protect you—
under them you’re perfectly safe;
his arms fend off all harm.
Fear nothing—not wild wolves in the night,
not flying arrows in the day,
Not disease that prowls through the darkness,
not disaster that erupts at high noon.
I think He, most assuredly, works harder on our relationship than I do.
