Won't relent until You have it all
My heart is Yours
I set you as a seal upon my heart
As a seal upon my arm
For there is love
That is as strong as death
Jealousy demanding as the grave
And many waters cannot quench this love
Song of Solomon 8:6-7
Set me as a seal upon your heart,
As a seal upon your arm;
For love is as strong as death,
Jealousy as ]cruel as the grave;
Its flames are flames of fire,
A most vehement flame.
Many waters cannot quench love,
Nor can the floods drown it.
If a man would give for love
All the wealth of his house,
It would be utterly despised.
Love this song and this verse! This is the ultimate love story. It is saying God wants all of us, all our affections, all of our thoughts, all of our being, all of our love. And He is jealous for our love. He wants to be the center of everything, just like a jealous lover, for He is the lover of our souls!
The Lord is jealous for me and for my love and my life! I belong to Him and He belongs to me. We are sealed together. God's love is so strong for me and you, as strong as death and jealousy. Think about that, and think about the strongest feelings you've ever had for another human being. Whether it is a child, parent, husband, wife, sibling, boyfriend, girlfriend, or lover. Think about the strongest feelings of passion you have ever felt, then multiply that by 800 billion! Think about the strongest feelings of desire and jealousy you have ever experienced and multiply that by 800 billion! That's how the Lord feels about me and about you! His love is a burning fire that can not be quenched! He will pursue you relentlessly.
If you are feeling restless, and desiring something, know that it is God and He is wanting you to draw close to Him. The same passion He feels for us, He has placed in every single one of us for Him! He is obsessed with me....and He is obsessed with you! And He wants us to be obsessed with Him!
To me this is the most beautiful thing!
