One Glance

“You have stolen my heart, my sister, my bride; you have stolen my heart with one glance of your eyes, with one jewel of your necklace.” [Song of Solomon 4:9 NIV]

I believe in love at first sight. If it is possible for God, creator and ruler of the universe, then it is possible for anyone. We are, after all, created in His image. Although, with God it was more like love at first thought.

Just imagine, at the first flash of inspiration, the first idea of the creation of YOU, He was already in love with you. YOU stole His heart and it can never be reclaimed, no matter what reasons you might try to use to convince Him otherwise. He is completely smitten.

‘I’m not worthy,’ you say. He believes you are worth enough for Him to sacrifice His Son on the cross. He laid down His life to win your heart.

‘I have done terrible things,’ you say. He shakes His head with a compassionate smile. ‘You are forgiven.’ His love is big enough and strong enough to wash over every wrong.

‘I am ugly,’ you say. And He says you are beautiful beyond description – perfection. (See Song of Solomon 4:7)

‘I am not enough,’ you say. If you give Him a chance, He can make you more than you ever dreamed possible. That is the power of His love.

So, the next time you feel down about yourself, remember this: from one glance of your eyes, God lost His heart to you forever. Love Him in return and you will never be the same.
