What if I told you that God desired a Divine Romance with you. God’s very essence, His Spirit is the definition of what love is (I John 4). In other words if you want to understand love look at the character of God the Father in the person of Jesus Christ (Heb. 1).
So many of us think that to know God means to have religion, but it doesn’t. It means relationship, deep and intimate relationship, right where you are at this very moment in time. At this very moment, in whatever circumstance or state you are in God desires a relationship with you (Rom. 5:8).
Most relationships begin by the guy asking the girl out on a date and more often than not that includes a meal, you know going out to dinner. Well that is what God said to us when he said in Ps. 23:5 that He prepares a table before us in the presence of our enemies. In the message Bible it says, “You serve me a six-course dinner right in front of my enemies”. In other words he is inviting you out to dinner because he is in love with you and wants a relationship with you, a divine romance. The neat thing is that it says He does this in the presence of our enemies. He isn’t waiting until we have no problems, habits, attitudes or distractions, he says, “come to dinner with me I want to feed you something”. I encourage you to accept that invitation and let Him take you to places that you’ve never been.
As in any relationship romance begins with a meal, eating something, a delicious 6-course meal at a fine restaurant. In the Spirit that means that you develop your relationship as you feed on the Word, as you accept His invitation to know Him better.
Once you accept this invitation Romans 8:35 says that nothing will separate you from His love, and I mean “NOTHING”. So relax and enjoy your time with Him, let yourself go and enjoy your night out in your new found divine romance!
