Good morning, Lord Jesus. You are One with the Father and One with the Holy Spirit. Be One within me and make me more like You today.
"I found him whom my soul loves. I held him, and would not let him go" (Song of Songs 3:4). "Let us rejoice and be glad ... His bride has made herself ready! (Revelation 10:7)
I spent some time yesterday in pre-marital counseling with a couple getting married in a few months. I know and love them both and it is an honor and a blessing to be invited to be a part of their Holy union with each other. I am so delighted in the reverence they have for each other and their upcoming wedding and their hearts desire to enter into their covenant in the pleasing will of God. I prayed over them this morning, and the covenant they are about to make with each other reminded me of the covenant you made with us.
Their covenant of love is to be a picture of Your covenant of love with us and ours with You (Ephesians 5:32). It's to be an "everlasting covenant" sealed by the promises and empowered by the grace of our "everlasting God" (Genesis 9:16; Isaiah 40:28). You are our Bridegroom and we are Your bride (Ephesians 5:25; Revelation 22:17). And just as we will celebrate the joy of this beautiful bride and her bridegroom, we long for the day all heaven and earth will proclaim, "Let us rejoice and be glad and give Him glory. For the wedding day of the Lamb has come, His bride has made herself ready!" (Revelation 19:7 NAB) In Jesus' name I pray. Amen.
My family, I pray you know in your heart that with one glance of your eyes you ravish the heart of your Beloved and He loves you with an everlasting love, in Jesus' name! Please pray the same for me. God bless you, my friends!
