I love those who love me, And those who seek me diligently will find me.
(Proverbs 8:17 NKJV)

True love does not happen overnight. When a man loves a women he has to spend time with her to develop a good relationship. Diligently putting effort into a relationship is valuable. Slowly with the passing of each day communication barriers are removed and trust replaces uncertainty so that the relationship can progress from superficial to deep. The Lord Jesus loves us and wants to develop a genuine relationship with us but this requires diligent effort. We seek the Lord by spending time with Him in prayer and in the study of His holy Word. Our dialogue moves from superficial to deep as we trust His faithful love with the issues of our hearts. True love is from God for God is love.
