Petition for Dissolution of Marriage
I guess that good beginning I shared a couple weeks ago, was, instead, a good ending.
This is a big NO.
In one second my whole future flashed before my eyes...it was not a pretty sight.
But then a still small voice gave me something else. It was a YES.
My soul was comforted with these words:
For your Maker is your husband,
The LORD of hosts is His name;
And your Redeemer is the Holy One of Israel;
He is called the God of the whole earth.
For the LORD has called you
Like a woman forsaken and grieved in spirit,
Like a youthful wife when you were refused," Says your God.
All your children shall be taught by the LORD,
And great shall be the peace of your children.
In righteousness you shall be established;
You shall be far from oppression, for you shall not fear;
And from terror, for it shall not come near you.
No weapon formed against you shall prosper,
And every tongue which rises against you in judgment
You shall condemn.
This is the heritage of the servants of the LORD,
And their righteousness is from Me," Says the LORD.
"Eye has not seen, nor ear heard,
Nor have entered into the heart of man
The things which God has prepared for those who love Him."
This world is not my home and where my treasure is there will my heart be also.
Temptations arise. Lies. I hear, "But God can't warm your bed, he can't drive for you in heavy traffic, he can't fix the kitchen sink when it is broken. Your children will be ruined. What God offers you is not good enough."
I reject the lies. My God is the Lover of my soul.
I remember that the Lord is my Shepherd. I shall not want! I set my affection on things above and not on things on the earth.
To the left is the here and now, to the right eternity; to live according to the flesh or to the Spirit? to seek worldly pleasure or the Kingdom of God?
Are you faced with No's in your life too? Have you done all you can to get the Yes you desire and still come up short? God is saying Yes to you.
For all the promises of God in Him are Yes, and in Him Amen, to the glory of God
It's an invitation.
He holds His hand out and beckons you...as He beckons me.
Knowing Him personally, I know He keeps His promises. I know He can be trusted.
I'm going with Him.
