When you read or hear the words “God’s Best”, what usually comes to your mind?
Is it about God’s plan for you?
Or is it about your dream partner? The ideal one? Mr/Ms “Perfect”? Mr/Ms “Best”?
We have been so enamored with the thought of having someone as our “God’s Best” that we’ve forgotten the real meaning of those words. “God’s Best” is not just about God’s plans in your life, or the things we may have. Yes, your God’s Best is a person. No, your God’s Best is not the one you are going to marry and have children with someday.
Our ultimate goal in life is not just about “living in Christian standards” – abiding the rules, knowing certain boundaries, attending church – and then finding the “one”. Our existence does not revolve around finding a spouse. We exist to give God glory and to become the disciple He has called us to be. We’re about living AND fulfilling the calling He has for us.
Do you know the song “None But Jesus” by Hillsong United? If you’re not so familiar with it, here is the song’s chorus:
There is no one else for me
None but Jesus
Crucified to set me free
Now I live to bring Him praise
There is NO ONE ELSE for us – NONE BUT JESUS.
No one, absolutely no one can ever compare to Him and to what He did on the cross for us.
He is our God’s Best. He’s the only one that can truly satisfy.
Why label as “God’s Best” someone who may fail a number of times? He or she may be the one that God has reserved for you, but it doesn’t mean he or she really is God’s best for you. That person may have shortcomings. And the best is supposed to be flawless. Who else could that be than God himself? Who else than Jesus?
So before you try to look for that special someone you address as your “God’s Best”, remember that God has already given you His best – and that is Jesus. That other special person God may have reserved for you may just be God’s SECOND Best.
