What does real intimacy look like?

Being truly intimate with someone means seeing into the deepest parts of who they are and accepting that person unconditionally—with extreme delight.

That is how God feels about YOU right now, at this very moment. He takes extreme delight in you! You are precious to Him at a level that goes beyond what you’ve dreamed of.

This week at BTO, we’re asking God to uncover your eyes (Ps. 119:18) so you can really start to see how He delights in you! Understanding His love for you will unlock your heart and allow you to be the person He created you to be.

Here are three Bible-based statements that are true for you today:

1. God loves me more than I could ever imagine! His love causes all my fears to scatter.

For the Lord your God is living among you. He is a mighty savior.

He will take delight in you with gladness.
With his love, he will calm all your fears.
He will rejoice over you with joyful songs.” (Zeph. 3:17 NLT)

How does this verse apply to you and your situation? What is God saying to you through it?

The Lord wants to come even closer to you and calm all your fears. Let go of everything fear has told you about love. God’s love for you is bigger and stronger than human words can describe.

2. I declare God’s opinion of me is the truth! His love for me is my foundation, and His delight in me is greater than I can understand.

My dearest one,
let me tell you how I see you—
you are so thrilling to me. (Song 1:9 TPT)

Do you understand you “thrill” the heart of God?

Find a notebook and pen, and sit down with Him in private. Ask Him to tell you how He sees you, and write down what you feel He’s saying.

His voice might sound something like this:

“Oh, My child—how deeply you are loved! If you could see My heart for you, all your questions would lose their fear and become filled with hope and desire and wonder. The more you trust Me, the more you will start to understand My love for you.”

3. I declare God is delighted in me! His love is my strength and confidence, and I know I am safe in Him.

The Lord himself watches over you!
The Lord stands beside you as your protective shade. (Ps. 121:5 NLT)

Psalm 121:5 is a verse of delight, but to see that delight, we need to look for it. Many verses in Scripture loudly declare, “I love you!” but they don’t necessarily use those words.

  • WHY does the Lord watch over you? Because you are so special to His heart!

  • WHY does He stand so close to you and protect you from the elements? Because you are His delight!

Be confident in His love today! Don’t be afraid to trust His heart toward you.

Before you go!

Here’s our prayer for you this week:

Heavenly Father,

Please touch our readers’ eyes this week so they can see how much You love them. May Your Word come alive to them, and may they get to experience the joy of knowing they have heard Your voice! If any of our readers are struggling with feeling loved, we ask that You would bring comfort to the very core of who they are and help them realize the truth—that they are so very precious in Your sight. Your love changes everything.
