“For thy Maker is thine husband; the Lord of hosts is his name; and thy Redeemer the Holy One of Israel, The God of the whole earth shall he be called” (Isaiah 54:5 in the King James Version of the Holy Bible). We will never be truly forsaken, alone or widowed because God is the husband of our soul. Too often we are deeply disappointed with our relationships with others because we expect more from them than they are capable of providing. It’s important to remember that our earthly relationships are but a shadow of what it means to have the affection, protection, companionship, friendship, partnership and leadership of our Maker.
Prayer: Lord Jesus, Everything I need from relationships with those closest to me, I find in You. You are the first and real love of my life!
