Think about it! The God of the universe Authors a Love poem better than any other, written to those who have a burning desire for a closer more intimate relationship with Himself through Jesus Christ. God’s Love once tasted by the soul is “more delightful than wine” Song 1:2. The best thing is that God wants you to experience His Love to the fullest, “Drink your fill” Song 5:1. So that “you greatly rejoice with joy inexpressible and full of glory” 1 Pt. 1:8. Your one burning desire is to “behold the beauty of the Lord” Psalm 27:4 and “to know the love of Christ which surpasses knowledge” Eph. 3:19 therefore you ask for it over and over again and God will do abundantly above and beyond what you think or imagine.
The bride in the Song longs to intensely experience the love and intimacy of God. Her hearts cry is “Let him kiss me with the KISSES” Song 1:2. and then God answers by pouring out his Love within our “hearts through the Holy Spirit who was given to us” to the degree that it may cause you to “faint” Song 2:5 I invite you to taste it by feeling what the bride felt, for God’s love is “Better felt than understood” Jonathan Edwards
