Do you think God’s love can satisfy the heart longing for love? My answer is two-fold and kind of complex: Yes God can satisfy the heart longing for love. There’s a space in our hearts that can only be filled with God’s love but He also created us to have healthy loving relationships in the covenant of marriage. But because some women don’t understand God’s plan for love they try to experience the love of God through man only, others try to replace the love of a husband with the love of God. The truth is God made us to have and enjoyed both. Let me explain.
Are you a woman trying to fill your God-space with man’s love?
If you love your man (husband or boyfriend) more than you love God or if you are a single woman and you’re sinning to experience love, know yours is not the same kind of love that Christ has with His church. Neither is of these ways is how God meant for us to experience love with a man.
Many single women hide their desires to experience the love of a man.
Some hide behind the love of God claiming to be satisfied in Him only while others say they simple don’t need a man, when the truth is they’ve given up on finding love, for one reason or another. Don’t get me wrong, there isn’t anything wrong with being single and everyone won’t marry. You should e content in whatever state you’re in but you don’t have deny your desire for love just because it hasn’t happened yet.
If you’re single and you’re in denial about your desire for love or someone has made you feeling wrong for wanting to experience the love of a man, let me just help you. It is perfectly OK to want love. That desire is from God. However, God wants you to allow him to bring a man who will love you as Christ loved the church.
This doesn’t mean you have to sit in the pew or sit at home and never interact with men but it does mean you should allow the Holy Spirit to lead you in any relationship that has the possibility forming with a man. He loves you more than anyone and He knows what’s best for you.
Sometimes women settle for what looks like love, feels like love but when unwrapped isn’t love, because they wouldn’t listen to the Holy Spirit. That’s a waste of time, really.
If a man claims to love you but doesn’t love God it’s impossible for him to love you like Jesus. He cannot love you sacrificially or unconditionally with all your flaws. If a marriage or relationship isn’t submitted to Christ and two people don’t love each other with the God-kind of love when trials come the love will grow cold.
Whether married or single God is your first love.
Beloved, Put God in His proper place and know that He created you with enough space in your heart to love Him first and foremost and experience real love with the man who will love you like He does.
