When you belong to Him you become His posession. His prized, treasured, adored possession. You are His inheritance. He values you beyond measure and views you as a gift to Himself. He sees you as a beautiful and as a precious gem. A royal crown that He holds in his hand. You are His. And the majestic God of Heaven is yours. He bought you with the highest price; He bought you with His own blood.
It’s the kind of love, the kind of romance that is almost unbearable to handle in our human state. Yet, tasting this exquisite love of His pulls out our heart’s deepest cry to Him, fainting for more. When a person is truly God’s bride, nothing – and I mean nothing – other than God himself, will ever be able to satisfy again. Experiencing God is the ultimate pleasure and it completely nullifies all other little faulty worldly pleasures–pleasures that will always leave us empty. He’s the one who truly fills and leaves us overflowing and satisfied. That is because we were made for Him. We were made by Him for HIS pleasure, and we will never find true pleasure until we come into contact with His pleasure.
He guides us to Himself by putting in the human heart a craving and a void. Many will seek other pleasures to fill the void that God put in our hearts. That’s why addictions are real. Why sensuality is saturated in our society. Why the buzz of the television won’t quit. Why we latch on to people and material things for personal security. And so many other things. Because we have a real void that we recklessly chase to fill our whole lives. We search for things that might give us pleasure for a moment but always leave us painfully aching. But the void is within us because we’re meant to crawl to Him and find true filling, true life, true pleasure, and true satisfaction. Only He can give it. Once it’s found in Him, the need to fill our souls with any and every other thing in this world melts away and disappears.
He fills us with His beauty, with His love, with His glory. And we become His crown, His joy, His treasure.
We are the object of the King’s love.
