Most of the time, when a couple gets together, one or the other is the first to be attracted. "He noticed me first," or "She is the one who began to pursue me." Sometimes it's a mutual thing. But here with God, He is the one who started it.
We love him, because he first loved us. I John 4:19
We think we are searching for Him, when all along He loved us first, saw us first in his mind, then created us out of love. We got lost through the fall of man from Adam's sin, but we were found again as we believed in His Son and the work he did on the cross.
Hereby perceive we the love of God, because he laid down his life for us; I John 2:16
He sees us and He most of all gets us. He knows what makes you tick inside. He knows that you are craving to be loved and noticed. And guess what? You can look no further. Turn to see the one who is watching you with eyes of love and forgiveness. He is your father, if you come to believe in Jesus. According to the Bible, there are only 2 fathers. One is of darkness and is Satan the father of lies. (John 8:44) And one is the Father of the lights, who is good. It really is simple, Satan is evil, and God is good. Which one would you rather have? One who hates you? Or one who loves you?
What a feeling of security, to be loved first, to be sought out first. That one would lay his life down for me before I even knew he was alive or existed. Or that would sacrifice Himself for me when I was at my lowest or in deepest of sin. Who would do this kind of thing? No one that I know, except God. You don't have to believe this at all. I happen to believe it, because I read it in His Word. His Word is truth and life. God is Love and that's who He is and has ever been and will always be. This is where I stay, and it is rock solid truth that is my foundation. He loved me first...
