Adoration 

O God, We proclaim you as Savior and the great Lover of Our Souls

 

 

I held on to him and would not let Him go… 

-Song of Solomon 3:4

Oh to know every part of You, and to be known in fullness.  You hold onto us, and we hold onto You.

…Let Him kiss me with the kisses of His mouth; for your love is better than wine.  

-Song of Solomon 1:2

 

You truly are the “better than” God—Your love is better than wine.  As lovers of Your heart, we completely surrender to Your lordship in our lives.  You gave us righteousness and peace to flood our souls, which was Your gift to us when You wed us.

For a day in Your courts is better than a thousand outside.

I would rather be a doorkeeper in the house of my God than dwell in the tents of wickedness.   

 PSALM 84:10 

You are taking us somewhere better than we could ever imagine.  The place You bring Your Bride is so beautiful that what we construct cannot compare.  Bring us inside, Lord!  Even today, bring us inside Your palace where You are King!

The law of Your mouth is better to me than thousands of gold and silver {pieces.} 

-PSALM 119:72

Father, You are the “better than” God.  You truly are better than any other pleasure.   Your “better than” plans are greater than any we could come up within our human wisdom and strength! 

Because Your loving kindness is better than life, My lips shall praise You. 

-PSALM 63:3 

You are the Abundant Lover of our souls!  All our fountains are in You!   You are a friend, a listener, and a lover of my soul, and I want to be with You. 

 

And Jesus called His disciples to Him, and said, "I feel compassion for the people,

because they have remained with Me now three days and have nothing to eat;

and I do not want to send them away hungry, for they might faint on the way."  

-Matthew 15:32

You are the Compassionate God! Jesus, You had such compassion for people.  It was in Your heart to be surrounded by Your loved ones. And You didn't mind taking care of us and our needs.  They don't burden You.

 

"There is no greater love than this: that a man lay his life down for his friends." 

-John 15:13

You offered Your life so willingly for us.  Thank You for doing this so we would be great friends and marvelous comrades to You.

"...So he would be the firstborn among many brethren."

-Romans 8:29

Oh how much You wanted a family!  We want to be great lovers of people with Your compassionate heart over others. 

 

When the Lord saw her, He felt compassion for her, and said to her, "Do not weep." 

-Luke 7:13

 

Jesus you had such love and Compassion for people--you didn't want us to ever cry.  You brought healing for our physical bodies, our emotions, and our spirits.  We will do the same!  

 

I will most gladly spend and be spent for your souls.

-2 Corinthians 12:15

Thank you, Abba, for creating us and pursuing us with such passion.  You love our souls and we love others'.     

Amen.
