The Divine Love Story - God's Quest for an Eternal Companion
Hidden between the lines of the Word of God lies the most invigorating, most romantic, and truest love story the universe will ever witness. It’s the story of the Father, the Son, and a Bride. A story in which you and I are protagonists... Read more:

"God is light," (1 John 1:5) but there was no light before He created it (Gen 1:3). From the moment He brought the universe into existence, He made Himself part of it.

Creation has always been about God preparing a home for Himself and for the ones He loves. All He ever desired was to be with us where we are (John 17:24), to spend every minute of the rest of eternity with us, lavishing His unconditional love on frail and undeserving human beings like you and me.

The universe isn't a place outside of God, designed to keep creation and Creator apart. It's His everlasting nuptial chamber, the final site of union of them both.

"Behold, the tabernacle of God is among men, and He will dwell among them, and they shall be His people, and God Himself will be among them." (Rev 21:3)

Jesus' favorite way of revealing Himself is through the Scriptures. On the road to Emmaus, the risen, glorified Jesus was walking right next to the disciples. Nothing hindered Him from showing Himself to them in all of His glory just like on the mount of transfiguration. And yet, it was the Scriptures that He used to make Himself known to them. He really loves His Word, it's His favorite way of revealing His heart and character to us. If you want to know Him, learn to find Him between the lines of this written transcript of His heart and His mind - the Bible.

Neither in heaven nor on earth will you ever find anyone more thoughtful toward you than Your Creator, Sustainer and Lover of your soul.

The more you love the Lord, the more you can love others without living in spiritual adultery. Loving Him doesn't only empower you to love others, it sets you free to love purely. 

God doesn't just know every detail because He is omniscient (all-knowing), He knows every little thing about us because He really cares that much.

Our need to get a prophetic word confirmed by God is like a bottomless pit. No matter how often He confirms it, it never really seems to be sufficient. We will just end up coming back begging for another confirmation.

We will never have assurance unless we enter the realm of faith and actually start believing that what He said is true. Turn His promises into expectations and declarations!

When the Man shining brighter than the sun splits the sky and again sets foot on the face of this Earth, the entire universe will be illumined by the light of His glory. Night and darkness will forever cease to exist and all of creation will be clothed with celestial brilliance as heaven and earth are united in the Son. Then the sheer endless depth of the universe will no longer appear as a dark, bleak void but reflect the manifold colors of His dazzling radiance.

For all of us who are still single:
"I can't deny that there's pain in the waiting. But this ache is a unique gateway into the heart of our heavenly Bridegroom."
