“I am my beloved’s and my beloved is mine; he browses among the lilies.” Song of Solomon 6:3 (NIV)
We’ve heard the sayings that “love makes the world go ‘round” and that “all we need is love.” And it’s so true. The need of every human heart is love, and God knows that too. In fact, He is love; it’s not just something He does – it’s Who He is! And since we are created in God’s image, we are wired to not only love but to be loved as well.
When you read the entire poem of Song of Solomon 6 from this phrase comes from, it is a beautiful love story between a man and a woman. This beautiful design helps us remember that we are precious to God. We are His “beloved!” He cherishes us and loves us more than we can even begin to fathom. But that’s not the whole story. His desire is that we would cherish and love Him as well. This verse is a beautiful description of God’s longing to hold a special place in our hearts just as we hold a special place in His heart.
This is the beauty of relationship with God. No one likes to be in a one-sided relationship with someone in which one person does all the giving, loving and caring. Likewise, God longs to be in a mutual relationship with us, similar to how a husband and wife share life together. The profound intimacy of loving and being loved are revealed in these words: “I am my beloved’s and my beloved is mine.”
