Psalm 45:10-11, 13-15

Listen to me, O royal daughter; take heart to what I say. Forget your people and your homeland far away. For your royal husband delights in your beauty; honor him, for he is your lord. [...] The bride, a princess, waits within her chambers, dressed in a gown woven with gold. In her beautiful robes, she is led to the king, accompanied by her bridesmaids. What a joyful, enthusiastic procession as they enter the king's palace!

He Knew.

God chose you. Before the foundation of the world he set you apart as his chosen one, part of a royal priesthood, a cornerstone, an eternal lineage. He knew you. He knew your most intimate thoughts and longings. Your deepest desires He knew (and he wasn’t afraid). He knew the intricacies of your mind, how you processed things, what you’d delight in. He knew. And in that time–that was actually before time–a longing of the purest kind sprang up inside of him. He loved you to the depths of his soul and beyond. Being the Omnipotent that he is He knew that he would be capable of perfectly filling that role and greater than any dream you could ever conjure up. He knew, because he gave you that dream. He knew he would surpass your greatest expectations, your deepest longing for wholeness, your pursuit of acceptance and the hidden passion for a romance beyond all others. He knew and so he created you. Knowing full and well it would be only through Himself that this could be done. That it’d be only through himself that his would be done. He knew, and only he could do it. He knew.
