The Ramak comments on the Midrash Rabbah,

הנה הקדוש ברוך הוא מתנהג עם ישראל בדרך זו. אומר “מה אעשה לישראל והם קרובי, שאר בשר לי עמהם”, שהם בת זוג להקדוש ברוך הוא, וקורא לה בתי, אחותי, אמי, כדרשו ז”ל

The Holy One, Blessed is He, conducts Himself towards [Bnei] Yisroel in this way: He says, “What shall I do for Bnei Israel, who are My ‘relatives’? I have with them a family relationship!” For they are the “spouse” of the Holy One, Blessed is He, and He [also] calls them, “My daughter,” “My sister,” and “My mother,” as our sages (Medrash Shir HaShirim 3:25] explain.”
