Look to Me and My strength; seek My Face always. I encourage you to let your heart rejoice whenever you are seeking Me.
Imagine an engaged couple—passionately in love. When the man goes to visit his betrothed, she doesn’t open the door and blithely say, “Oh, it’s you.” Nor does he look past her as if she were invisible and ask, “Do you have anything to eat?” Instead, their hearts leap for joy because they are together. You are My betrothed, and I am the forever-Lover of your soul. Rejoice in the astonishing affection I have for you!
Glory in My holy Name; it’s holy because it represents Me. This Name is above every name, yet you may use it freely to commune with Me and worship Me joyously. You are privileged to have such easy access to Me. Some people glory in their wealth, achievements, beauty, or fame. But I invite you to exult in Me—your Savior, Lord, and Lover. Glorifying Me will strengthen and delight you, bringing Power to your prayers and Joy to your heart.
Glory in his holy name; let the hearts of those who seek the Lord rejoice. Look to the Lord and his strength; seek his face always.
~ 1 Chronicles 16:10–11
I am jealous for you with a godly jealousy. I promised you to one husband, to Christ, so that I might present you as a pure virgin to him.
~ 2 Corinthians 11:2
“Greater love has no one than this, that he lay down his life for his friends.”
~ John 15:13
Therefore God also has highly exalted Him and given Him the name which is above every name, that at the name of Jesus every knee should bow, of those in heaven, and of those on earth, and of those under the earth.
