Choose to Be His

“I am my beloved’s and my beloved is mine.”
—Song of Solomon 6:3

This verse may be familiar to you if you’ve read the Song of Solomon (also called the Song of Songs). The book paints a picture of the relationship we have with our God. As it was with Solomon and his bride, so it is with us: we are God’s, and He is ours.

Beloved, you are important to God. He created you and me because He wanted our friendship. James 2:23 tells us that Abraham “was called the friend of God.” Can you imagine? God called Abraham His yedeed (Hebrew for friend). But friendship with God isn’t only for Abraham. It is for you and me as well (Gal. 3:14).

Yeshua said, “No longer do I call you slaves, for the slave does not know what his master is doing; but I have called you friends, for all things that I have heard from My Father I have made known to you” (John 15:15). God gets pleasure from being in relationship with us. But as with any good relationship, both sides must choose to value the other.

We exist within God, because everything God created exists within Him. He holds the entire universe together. Yet while we exist within Him, we are separate from Him until we choose to unite with Him. We are unique human beings. The reason God made us independent from Him is because He wanted a real love relationship with us, and the only way that could happen is if we had to choose to love Him. Because we’re in Him but unique from Him, we must choose to unite with Him.

I want to ask you a question today: Are you choosing every day to join yourself to God for His pleasure—to be His? When we choose to be His, we wake up in the morning and begin the day by bringing Him into our consciousness. Then we consciously give ourselves to Him by doing things that please Him such as cultivating an awareness of His presence, praying, reaching out to help others, and spending time in the Word. Beloved, we are His. We were created for Him, and when we give ourselves to Him, we fulfill the reason for which He made us—to be joined and united to Him.

Father God, I surrender myself fully to You now. I choose to make myself Yours. Father, I ask that You help me love You and make Your Son the priority of my life.
