Then God said, “Let us make human beings in our image, to be like us. They will reign over the fish in the sea, the birds in the sky, the livestock, all the wild animals on the earth, and the small animals that scurry along the ground.” Genesis 1:26 NLT
Before God created the world, there was a relationship between the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit. We were made in God's image to have fellowship with God.
Humans are built for relationship! But, why is it so hard to find the right person? Maybe its because we are looking in the wrong place.
Before you start that new dating app or go to the next singles mixer, think for a second. Why are you doing this? What is the point of swiping right and left and going on all these pointless dates hoping to find that missing thing? What is that missing thing that everyone seems to be looking for? Is it a career? A soulmate? Money?
The first relationship on Earth or in the universe wasn’t a romantic relationship.
That deep longing or void that keeps us buying the next new iPhone, Jordan's, or dating the new person at church may be our instinctive desire to be connected with God.
Finding hope in anything, but God is an endless cycle that is emotionally and financially expensive.
What you are looking for can't be found in an alcohol bottle, shoe box, or person.
If not for your salvation, then at least for the sake of your wallet.
The first human relationship was between God and Adam. Only God can satisfy what is missing in us.
Dear God, I thank you for your love and for teaching us how important it is to stay connected to you. Help us to cling to you and let go of temporary fixes. Some of us are in pain right now and we are using substances, people, and food to numb the pain. Father, I give you the pain and I ask for you to give us the strength to heal and process the hurt. Thank you for your healing. In Jesus’ name. Amen.
