At the heart of the song’s message is a prayer to God to remind the pray-er of God’s intense, special, and undying love for them. We live in a world that frequently tells us that we need to be more; that we need to be “-ER” – smartER, richER, fastER, prettiER, skinnER, etc….And when we finally reach our “ER” goals, we want to be “EST” – smartEST, richEST, prettiEST – and it’s never ending. We can never be everything everyone else tells us we need to be.
But God comes in and calls us beloved, chosen, and lavished with love. It’s songs like this that bring us back to the simple truth that God adores us. As Jason Gray says, “I’m the One You love, I’m the One You love, That will be enough, I’m the One You Love.”
Does anything about this song speak to you? How do you remind yourself of God’s extraordinary love for you?
