The Wedding Day
I heard something like the voice of a great multitude, and like the voice of many waters, and like the voice of mighty thunders, saying, 'Hallelujah! For the Lord our God, the Almighty, reigns! Let us rejoice and be exceedingly glad, and let us give the glory to him. For the marriage of the Lamb has come, and his wife has made herself ready.' Revelation 19:6 WEB
I have a great wife and we have been through a lot together. Through famine and through abundance, through happy times, and through sad times, through sickness, and health. If there is one thing on earth that can set me off, it is for someone to say something bad about my wife. Instead of turning my other cheek, I want to turn theirs. I admit that I could use the Lord's help in this area.
The Lord cares even more about His bride. The bride of Christ is the Church, which is made up of His people, including You and me. Regardless of how you view yourself, God Almighty adores you, picked you, and is preparing you for a wedding day. When people put you down and point our your flaws, the Lord hears it. He knows you better than they do. Just because nothing immediately happens does not mean that it goes unnoticed. When all is said and done, and the curtain closes on our life, we will join Him in heaven forever.
Lift up your head today and smile, for you are loved, adored, and God Almighty Himself has chosen you to be a part of the bride of Christ. The work that He began within you will be completed, and your best days are still in front of you, because the wedding day is still to come.Prayer: Heavenly Father I look forward to all that You have for me. I grant You permission to work in my life and to draw me closer to You. Guide me today and help me make the right decisions. Speak to me and through me, in the name of Jesus Christ I pray.
