Women feel the need to find true love in a man and that is very understandable. However, the truth of the matter is ONE MAN that I classify as my First Love is JESUS. He is my best friend, my confidant, my husband, my everything; He is the air I breathe! Ladies, if a man has hurt you in the past, I challenge you to allow Jesus to fill that void in your heart. He wants to fill that emptiness you crave for, especially when you are soaking up your pillow with tears. He wants to take away that pain that seems to keep coming back to taunt you. He did not die on The Cross for you to live a miserable life; He died because He loves you.
I have never experienced a man’s love more than Jesus’s love! Some men will use and abuse women, but Jesus will sustain and keep them!
The challenge for young women is replacing our first love. We think back to how ‘on-fire’ we were in the beginning, but years down the line, our love for the things of God seems to be secondary. Sometimes we allow the stress and pressures of life to control and cause us to make unhealthy decisions, which is why most relationships are being shattered today. We get caught up in our own problems and build a wall between God and ourselves. We may not be aware that this is happening, because it becomes comfortable to us, and eventually our attitude will start rubbing off on our loved ones. We look to other things or people to make us happy. We forget Jesus. That is somewhat painful and we must put an end to this. Seek ye FIRST the Kingdom of God and His Righteousness and ALL other things shall be added unto you (Matthew 6:33).
Despite your lustful desires, Jesus still wants you. He wants to tell you how much He loves and cares for you. Everything about you is perfect in His eyes, so do not doubt yourself. He is a gentleman. He reminds you daily that you are not defined by what others see you as.
I challenge you today to change your priorities and place Jesus in the centre of your heart! No one on this earth can be able to separate you from the Love of God! Our happiness is only found in Jesus alone, so we do not need to waste our time running after someone who isn’t pursuing you.
Remember: “If a man does not know what he wants, he will give you anything”.
Know your worth! It is not in any man, but in your first love; JESUS!
ROMANS 8:38 (NLT) “AND I AM CONVINCED THAT NOTHING CAN EVER SEPARATE US FROM GOD’S LOVE. NEITHER DEATH NOR LIFE, NEITHER ANGELS NOR DEMONS, NEITHER OUR FEARS FOR TODAY, NOR OUR WORRIES ABOUT TOMORROW, NOT EVEN THE POWERS OF HELL CAN SEPARATE US FROM GOD’S LOVE”.
This is His promise to us!
