Monday’s Musings #177 & The Indissoluble Relationship

The Indissoluble Relationship | What Joy Is Mine

When I married my Love, we married for life. We are going on 24 years and it was never a thought we would ever not be married. However, marriage is work. Good, hard and love-filled work. Every investment to love unconditionally and wholeheartedly, to forgive willingly, to protect and hold close intentionally, to serve cheerfully, and to cherish and adore each and every day is worth it. It reiterates Song of Solomon 2:16, ” My beloved is mine, and I am his.

Concerning marriage, this verse should motivate each of us to love our spouse intentionally and with JOY. They are God’s gift to us. This verse reflects the bride’s view of her relationship with her bridegroom. She belongs to him and he belongs to her. Not just today but for all the days to follow. They are one and adhere to a mutual bond of affection and love for one another. There is certainty that their relationship will be lastingindissoluble! They will only have eyes for each other.

It’s not about finding the perfect person but the person who compliments you. It’s seeking the one who is your counterpart, equally yoked, and completes you. Their heart is for you alone, desiring to spend their life with you and none other. “I am my beloved’s and his desire is for me.” (Song of Solomon 7:10) 

Concerning faith, this verse reminds us that upon receiving Jesus, we belong to him forevermore. We are His and no one or nothing can separate us. There is security and comfort in knowing we are Christ’s beloved. It is a communion with Him—not only a covenant of His love—but an ample and deep relationship. All He has promised in the gospel, all he has prepared in Heaven, is ours! It is an indissoluble relationship—unable to be destroyed! We are his by creation—“Know that the Lord, he is God! It is he who made us, and we are His.” (Psalm 100:3) We are his by redemption—“I am praying for them. I am not praying for the world but for those whom you have given me, for they are yours.” (John 17:9) As Spurgeon spoke, “Which is the greater miracle — that he should be mine, or that I should be his?”

    Fabulous Quote by Spurgeon. Learning to receive Love from the Lord has certainly helped set me free to receive love from my husband and loving my husband has taught me how to love the Lord in an intimate way. Marriage can be such a beautiful analogy of our love relationship with the Lord. Praying for all those hurting and broken marriages. May the Lord draw each spouse close to Him. Blessings! Love, Rachael @ Inking the Heart
