Hosea 2: 16 “ And it shall be, in that day,”
Says the LORD,
“ That you will call Me ‘My Husband,’
And no longer call Me ‘My Master,’
Finally came to revelation tonight as I was praying. My desire is to get to know God the way He wants me to and I felt my spirit yearning in this year of singleness for a husband but not an earthly husband, but the perfect Husband. Getting to that mindset where I know in my heart that my first and foremost important marriage is my marriage to Jesus. He wants to get to know me and for me to get to know Him. I realized tonight that He wants to hold me when I cry at night and when I go to bed, He wants to hold my hand when I feel alone doing errands, and that when I get angry at Him because I am frustrated that He will never run away but hold me closer and tell me “we’ll make, I promise”.
Jesus is a Husband that no man will ever compare to and when we make the commitment to Him, why wouldn’t He not want us to know what He wants us to do? I mean isn’t that the whole purpose of knowing God’s will for our lives? As the head of the household and Jesus being that Head in OUR household, He wants me to know what He wants us to do. He is not a husband that is going to keep stuff from us and not let us know what the plan is. Just like any great earthly husband, he wants his family, especially his wife to know exactly what they are gonna do and when. However, it comes with trusting that person, knowing that person intimately, spending time in conversation and fellowship, in prayer. When we have those foundations in our “marriage” with Jesus, it will be so much easier to know exactly what He wants us to do.
hmm.. Jan 1, 2012… the day I really said, “I do”.
