TODAY’S PROPHETIC THOUGHT
Don’t be afraid of the secret place between us. I will serve your greatest needs there and you will serve mine by loving and helping those without hope. Care for the widow, the orphan, the lonely and oppressed and selflessly serve them as you would Me.
LOVE SONGS OF OLD
The power of intent is huge in the Kingdom. Being intentional means you have determined to make something a priority. Make no mistake, this is about romance.
God Almighty is the inventor of romance. If you don’t know anything about romance, you’re not going to know anything about this. What’s real is intimacy changes from when you’re young to when you’re old.
The only understanding that young people have of intimacy at first is the physical part. After time, that changes into an understanding of serving that other person and putting their needs first. It’s vulnerability. It’s all about being vulnerable with someone and trusting them with everything that you have.
How you express that at first is physical and it’s glorious! But it morphs into something much more than something just physical. It matures into something deep and life-giving because your life is about selflessly serving that other person and wrapping your world around them. That’s what love songs are always about and the Lord Jesus knows a little about that.
The Lord has appeared of old to me, saying: “Yes, I have loved you with an everlasting love; Therefore with lovingkindness I have drawn you.” – Jeremiah 31:3
Notice the words “appeared of old to me.” The Lord is saying the love between him and Jeremiah is mature, deep and selfless. That’s some love song God wrote to that prophet and He’s singing it to you as well.
Want a mature love with Jesus? Serve Him and the least of these. He will serve you right back and, I promise you, it will be life-changing.
