God is not timid with his love. You see, fierce love has already made up its mind. There is no hesitation, no consideration, there is only action. That is what Jesus did for us. Nothing could distract Him from doing what love compelled Him to do. He did not want to die, but He did because of His fierce love for us. In our moments when it feels like we are drowning, it is His fierce love that races to our rescue. Even when we feel like we can handle everything on our own sometimes, still, His fierce love never quits, it never fails, it never gives up, it never runs out.
One night many years ago, it was very late as I was driving home. This was a point in my life that I felt like I was walking through hell. I was actually quite numb, I felt nothing. I felt God was so far away from me and was going to leave me right where I was in the middle of this mess. There was times I would ask, “Do you even hear me?” I saw nothing changing and my faith was barely hanging on by a thread and I was ready to let go and just give up.
It was that night I felt such an intense grip on my heart and as if a torrent of water rushed over me. I was in the grip of God’s love and it broke every chain on my heart. I literally collided with God that night and it left me sobbing in tears! It was like running a marathon after everyone else had stopped, but I kept going. Human love seems to have a stopping point, but not God’s love. His love seems especially persistent when we fail Him; it’s a crazy love. His love won’t stop until it wins our heart. There is nothing that can keep Him from coming after us just as he did for me that night. I know that is why the song Fierce still pierces my heart and soul as it visited me on such a personal level.
His Love is Fierce and now every part of me sings these words unto my King;
Before I call, before I ever cry
You answer me from where the thunder hides
I cannot run, this heart I’m tethered to
With every step I collide with You
Like a tidal wave crashing over me
Rushing in to meet me here
Your love is fierce!
Like a hurricane that I can’t escape
Tearing through the atmosphere
Your love is fierce!
You cannot fail, the only thing I’ve found
Is through it all You never let me down
You don’t hold back, relentless in pursuit
And every turn I come face to face with You
He chases us down, he seeks us out,
How can we be lost when he has called us found.
His Love Is Fierce!
Wherever you are, whatever you may be facing. Even if you feel He is a million miles away, just know that you are on a collision course with the Almighty and his fierce love for you. He wont let you go!
