Place me like a seal over your heart, like a seal on your arm; for love is as strong as death, its jealousy unyielding as the grave. It burns like blazing fire, like a mighty flame. Song of Songs 8:6
Everyone is searching for the perfect love. Check out the latest reality shows. Download the latest app or search the online dating site. Dating, relationships, love, marriage—and the opposite: divorce, heart-ache, break-ups and loneliness are the primary topics fueling our focus and drive.
We don’t know where to find it or how to keep it if we do, but one thing is for sure—everyone wants someone to love them for who they are and to love them with loyalty, commitment and undying devotion. In a world populated with seven billion people, it seems that surely the right one is out there somewhere.
The shocking truth is no human on this earth can deliver the intimacy our hearts desire so deeply. No person can love us with all the unconditional love we crave or give us the sense of security and identity we search so hard to find.
Only One love exists to satisfy those longings. God, the One who made us, knows us and pursues us as the lover of our souls, is the only One who can fill that void. When we stop looking elsewhere and receive the love He freely gives, we finally find that ultimate fulfillment. “It burns like blazing fire, like a mighty flame.” Fueled by God himself, the passion never burns out.
The question is – What are you seeking?
