what God desires

Today's readings: Jer 31:27-32:44, 1 Tim 3:1-16, Psalm 88:1-18, Prov 25:20-22

God expresses what HE wants in today's reading. He says in Jeremiah... "I will put my instructions deep within them... in their hearts. I will be their God, and they will be my people."

Doesn't that stir your heart, reading that? What God wants... is for us to know His will inside of us. So that we will love Him, and we will belong to each other. He even says He will love His people like a husband loves His wife. God desires intimacy with us. That may sound odd... but it's actually true. And that's part of the reason He has given us the amazing gift of our sexuality - because it points to the deep, profound, life changing relationship that He wants to have with each of us.

He is asking you today - to open your heart, let Him put His words deep inside of you, and learn to love Him the way He has loved you since the beginning of the world.

God, thank You for loving us so much.
