|Valentine’s Day was this week. I had a thought that had never occurred to me before. I realized God wants to be my Valentine? Instead of a gift or flowers, He sent His Son to show me His love. Like the gifts or cards I received from loved ones, I can’t enjoy what God offers unless I accept them|
Revelation 3:20 says, “Here I am! I stand at the door and knock. If anyone hears my voice and opens the door, I will come in and eat with that person, and they with me.” An unopened gift in someone’s hand communicates this same concept. Like Monty Hall used to say on Let’s make a Deal, “You can’t know what is there until you look inside” What I am trying to unwrap here (pardon the pun) is similar to what I wrote about a month ago. http://thankfulinallthings.com/is-there-a-veil-keeping-you-from-seeing-life-from-gods-perspective/
God loves you so much and is offering you an abundant life. https://www.biblehub.com/john/10-10.htm He Loves you and wants to be your Valentine; The One you choose to love.
Like Monty Hall used to say on Let’s make a Deal, “You can’t know what is behind Curtain #3 without trading what you have to me.” https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=oKNuweTpgvU The problem with the game is you might be hoping for a car but instead you get a goat eating some hay. The good news is that is not how it works with God. Yes, you need to trade (surrender) what you have to Him but there is only an abundant and purpose filled life that comes with that trade.
God wants to be your Valentine not just on February 14th but every day and in every moment. He wants you to choose Him as the one to love. Open the card (Bible) and read how He loves you and wants the very best for you. Open your heart and accept the gift that only He can give. The gift of His Son Jesus who came so His Father’s joy may be in you and that your joy and life may be made complete. John 15:11
Won’t you say yes to God’s request to Be your Valentine? He is knocking on the door of your heart. Waiting with a gift in His outstretched hands. When you do, you become a fellow heir of the grace of life, allowing your prayers to not be hindered. Once you become His Valentine, you will find yourself wanting to share the gift He has given with everyone around you because everyone needs this type of love, God is the only one who can love you perfectly. When you have a relationship with God and experience His love, it empowers you to love others in the same way God loves you. What more can you ask for a Valentine’s Day wish? 🙂
