“And I will betroth you to me forever. I will betroth you to me in righteousness and in justice, in steadfast love and in mercy. I will betroth you to me in faithfulness. And you shall know the Lord.”
Betroth- to engage, promise, pledge
–>God gives them the most sacred and inviolable security imaginable that he will love them, protect them, and provide for them, that he will do the part of a husband to them, and that he will incline their hearts to join themselves to him and will graciously accept them in doing so. (Matthew Henry)
I know that I am not the Israelites but I do feel that God has given me a promise, to love me deeply but do I treat him as my first love? I feel like I am defaming his promise when I don’t believe it. Do I not trust him! Do I not love him more! Do i not long after him more!
Just something I am thinking about.
