You Are Loved, Yes, You!

My beloved spake, and said unto me, Rise up, my love, my fair one, and come away. For, lo, the winter is past, the rain is over and gone; The flowers appear on the earth; the time of the singing of birds is come, and the voice of the turtle is heard in our land. (Song of Solomon 2:10-12)
When the only form of love someone has experienced is human love, then they haven’t experienced the truest love of all.
Know this: The love God has for you is unlike any other.
Read through today’s scripture carefully and soak up every word. That is God speaking to you, your beloved. Whether you may realize it or not, you ARE His beautiful one.
Behold, you are beautiful, my love, behold, you are beautiful! (Song of Songs 4:1)
Have you ever received so much adoration from someone that you didn’t know how to react? Have you ever been under the gaze of adoration from someone and felt like it didn’t belong to you?
Sometimes we may read through the scriptures, read about God’s amazing love, and then look behind us before pointing at ourselves and say, “Me? Is He really talking to me?”
The answer to that is an astounding, “Yes”.
You are His beloved, and He is yours! Know today that He is calling you out of your hiding place.
Why would you shy away from His love? Why would you look away from the One who loves you most?
Why would you wait a second longer before running to Him? There is no shame in His presence.
You are blameless in His sight because of what Jesus has done for you. You are washed clean and shining bright with His robe of righteousness! How He adores and loves you!
It is time to rejoice and arise with your beloved! Come away with Him today, for He is waiting for you.
Lord, there are no words to describe the beauty of your love and who you are. Help me to fully receive and experience the amazing love that you have for me! How I long to spend time away with you and meet you face to face. Help me to see myself the way you do and be transformed by this extravagant love. Thank you for calling me to you, as I choose to run into your arms today.

When I read this devotion I couldn’t help but think, wow, what a powerful devotion. I pray you are inspired to run into His arms today. He truly adores you. Yes, you!
Have a beautiful and uplifting day in The Lord!

So Loved

For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life. (John 3:16)

From the heart of God to the cross of Christ, redemption came into view. God was not willing to turn His back on the human race. His love was too deep, His mercy too wide. He longed to recover, redeem, and bring us back to Himself. “For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life” (John 3:16).

This is what God did for us. God took Heaven’s best—the Lord Jesus Christ—to redeem earth’s worst. The Son of God died on a cross, an instrument of Roman torture made for the vilest offenders.

We, as a race, have been enticed into the service of Satan, but our unfaithfulness and waywardness have not canceled out God’s love for us. Instead, He has made the way for our rescue through His Son, Jesus Christ. He made the sacrifice and paid a price unthinkably greater than our true value. We are redeemed, recovered, and restored, not with money—silver and gold—but with the precious blood of Christ.

What a mighty God we serve!! When I read this devotion I was reminded of an old hymn, He paid a debt He did not owe, I owed a debt I could not pay, I needed someone to wash my sins away. How true is that? I have followed after Christ all my life and yet every single time I am reminded of His sacrifice for my sins long before I even existed, I can’t hold back the tears. But God commendeth his love toward us, in that, while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us (Romans 5:8).

Have a beautiful day in The Lord!!
