I prayed this personally and I hope the “i’ that I used, you can make it your own “I”.
TUESDAY OF SEVEN DAYS TO NEVER FORGET HOW FAR GOD WENT TO SAVE MY SOUL GIVING HIM FIRST LOVE, LOVE WORSHIP (Rev.2:4)!
Dear Lord Jesus,
I love You with first love, love and I know that is Your heart’s desire for me!
You know that My heart burns with passion as those on the road to Emmaus did.
You know Lord that this is a very favorite verse that touches my heart for You;
Luke 24:32 They said to one another, “Were not our hearts burning within us while He was speaking to us on the road, while He was explaining the Scriptures to us?”
You know Beloved of my heart that the first time so long ago someone shared about seeing You in the Hebrew scriptures absolutely thrilled my spirit. I wanted more of that treasure hidden away in all those scriptures. That is what You were doing in sharing the Word with the two walking so downhearted.
The more I see You in the scriptures in both testaments my heart burns with passion for those blessings about You. As Your bride it causes me to continue to have that passionate first love, love to obey and please the One I love.
Thank You Holy Spirit for touching my heart with these words giving me my purpose for living –
2Peter 3:18 but grow in the grace and knowledge of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. To Him be the glory, both now and to the day of eternity. Amen.
My Bridegroom, Your Word taught me how to please You! As a young believer You gave me godly sorrow and a repentant spirit to correct me! Thank You, thank You, thank You with all of my love for scourging me.
You changed my life. I love You with first love, love my Bridegroom when You had me experience the multitude of Your mercies all these years.
How can I not love You passionately with first love, love! Thank You Abba Father that You would give me to Your Son as His bride with so many others.
John 10:29 “My Father, who has given them to Me, is greater than all; and no one is able to snatch them out of the Father’s hand.
Just like they did in families so long ago in Israel, the father would seek a bride for his son. In my simple human terms, I can see You dear Father telling Your Son that “I have a bride for You.” You show Him a picture of who was chosen to become His bride – he sees pictures of filth in a soul with only an ugly sin nature.
You Lord Jesus say, “I will die for that one to be My bride and then Your Father shows You the picture on the back of what I and others would become – beautiful beyond measure. You would say with joy , “they look like Me”.
Dear Lord Jesus, thank You that we will have a body like Your glorious body (Phil.3:21)!
How can I not love You with first love, love as Your bride now! Oh, to be so in love with You as a bride it causes us to be so careful we would not want to do anything to displease You.
That first love, love causes us to fear to hurt the One we love. You who are intimate already living in our hearts! Thank You for the 66 love letters showing us how to truly love You by being obedient to please You.
Praise You Lord, for You saw me without hope (Eph.3:12) There was absolutely nothing that I could do to save myself.
Your anger was hanging over my head every single minute John3:36 “He who believes in the Son has everlasting life; and he who does not believe in the Son shall not see life, but the WRATH OF GOD abides on him.” and I did not know it.
But You Father did not spare Your own Son, but delivered Him up for me, how shall You not with Your Son also freely meet all of my needs? (Rom.8:32).
How can I not love and obey You when You have the dear Holy Spirit praying for me in my weakness because I don’t always know how or what to pray?
Holy Spirit You love me so fully and so deeply that You pray for me with groanings that cannot be uttered (Rom.8:26)!
Jesus You love me Your bride sooo much that You went further, as my High Priest always making intercession for me (Heb.7:25)!
Oh, what a precious gift of Your first love, love, You daily watch over me so fully. I worship with all of my heart for what it cost You to have me as Your bride. You suffered all that wrath that was over my head daily.
May I continue in this wonderful first love, love so that I will not watch, listen, or read anything that uses Your name as a curse word or share things that are against Your word.
I love You soooo much that I want no leaven in my life! Make me aware of it because a little “innocent” leaven will leaven the whole lump of good and would disappoint You.
All I desire is for my Wonderful Bridegroom to be seen in my actions, attitudes, facial expressions that I am madly in love with You!
My Bridegroom, because I love You with first love, love, I will continue to pursue peace and holiness so that I will see more and more of You, who You are in all the scriptures! (Hebrews 12:14,15).
JOHN 14:21 “HE WHO HAS MY COMMANDMENTS AND KEEPS THEM, IT IS HE WHO LOVES ME. AND HE WHO LOVES ME WILL BE LOVED BY MY FATHER, AND I WILL LOVE HIM AND MANIFEST MYSELF TO HIM.”
My prayer to You my Bridegroom is “lead me in the paths of righteousness for Your Namesake.” Psa.23:3b Your Name saved me, healed me and delivered me into Your Bridegroom’s embrace.
In Your Name alone Lord Jesus!
Amen and Amen!
