Is God a Reluctant Lover?
When someone holds back in a relationship, it’s uncomfortable. It creates uncertainty. It makes us doubt when we desperately need to trust. I don’t think I could love and trust God if I felt he loved me with reluctance. It would bring out all of my insecurities. I would wonder what I needed to do to help him fully embrace me.
When I’m uncertain about love, I hold back and withdraw. I feel that there is a lot of risk involved and that can make me very nervous. If I were to know that God fully loved me then I would respond likewise. There would be incredible freedom in that. That same freedom would then extend into my other relationships. I would feel anchored in a love like that. There would be no need to wonder if I measure up. Have you ever felt you need to measure up to be loved?
