What’s so sexy about God?
Some of the key things that stood out to me in this chapter were,
1. God will not force you
-I have been in relationships where the guy was pushy, insecure so he was controlling,out of control in his character.
-God is patient, he’s a gentleman and instead of manipulating you to be with him, he lovingly draws you close to him.
2.God is returning only for those whose faith is in their confession of him-the kind of faith that produces virtue: worth,strength and value.
-so many times believers box in their understanding and application of faith. I’m one of them. When I was coming up, the focus of faith was more so geared to belief in Him as God, as ruler, creator, healer but never on self identity of the individual believer. All of these things are good and correct but I found that when there is misapplication of anything abuse is inevitable. When you don’t know your real worth, real value and real strength you’ll be deceived and taken advantage of. Jesus came into the earth and repeatedly assured us of who he was/is and then he ask who do you say that I am. He is truth, he is comforter, provider,shelter,so much more and we are hidden in Him.
3.You must be willing to give your heart and spirit to him.
-a real love relationship takes sacrifice and risks
-he doesn’t ask us to pay for love, attention or affection; he took the first step and paid for it first to be with us and then asks us to ACCEPT it by yielding our hearts and spirit to receive
4.God’s love preceded our birth
-there is nothing that we can do to earn God’s love or lose his love because it was predetermined and preexisting because we could make our first mistake or mess up in which he knew we’d do anyway
5. Understanding our real identity takes
-a journey that never ends

Everything about God is so sexy. His love demonstrates that He is the epitome of the perfect lover, gentleman, provider, and friend. He is my knight and shining armor, the lover of my soul. Jeremiah 29:11 reveals He has plans for me and that is part of the opportunity to allow Him to love on me and me love on him and discover and walk out this love story. It amazes me to discover daily how much he loves me, and it gives me confidence in who I am in Him. I am becoming approachable, fulfilled, desirable and conquering. The more time I spend getting to know Him, he reveals himself to me and reveals me to me! He reveals my image and likeness of Him, its amazing, thrilling and makes my heart go pitter patter, just like you feel in a human relationship, but so much deeper because this is a spiritual relationship.

What’s so sexy about God? Learning more about the word “know” as I am falling deeper and deeper in love with Him. Knowing Him as our Father, friend, judge, and now a lover and how He waited for us 75 generations for me to love Him. Actually God waited much longer for us to love Him The more I get to “know” Him the more I am learning to receive His forgiveness, love, and trust in Him.

I have found out the importance I am as a woman to a God or Husband who loves and find me attractive, to the point that I have His undivided attention, as I love on Him and make Him the center of my attention, He takes pleasure in making sure I have the very best of life, because I have shown my love for Him and I can go a little further and say He provides for me any way because that’s just the kind of God and lover He is.
