God gave me a revelation about a man, many years before i met my husband. (During a time of great suffering). When GOD showed me who His real man was, i wept bitterly, for my eyes opened to discover that i too had been a verbal abuser of men in my ignorance, along with so many other misguided women. He showed me that His man was like Him,.... sensitive, gentle, long suffering, misunderstood...... I went to all the men in my life; my Dad, my brothers, my two sons, and every male i knew, and begged them to forgive me for not discerning them through the eyes of God. I was deeply hurt knowing i had mistreated them in my heart.
God showed me how His man was His replica of Him, placed upon His earth to reign in full authority. He was the one God placed in charge and God has never changed His order. Once i got that eye-opening revelation, i asked God not to give me a man, for i felt i did not deserve one. (I had been previously married resulting from my own carnal choosing, and divorced.)
Years later, when God sent Tony into my life (Our Story). God had to thunk me on the head to let me know it was Him! I questioned God saying, "GOD!!!! WHY are You giving me a man??? I thought you and i had something going on!! He gently assured me saying, "trust me," of course, i did, and never looked back. God needed me for His man, Tony. GOD Himself was the one who spoke out of His own mouth saying,.... IT IS NOT GOOD FOR MAN TO BE ALONE!!! HE NEEDS HELP!
Later on, he created woman... from His man... from man's side.... to reign next to him... not in front, and not behind him, but to BE HIS HELP. Women have to get the revelation about who they really are. The media, our environments, and other influences have all tampered with the REAL TRUTH about men, women, and marriage. It has couples looking everywhere but to the ONE who created marriage to get answers about marriage.
There is much i can share on this topic... and when the time permits, i will. Meanwhile, be encouraged. Whatever state you are in.... single or divorced, good or bad marriage, GOD, can make a difference and change things around the way He intended.
Father, i pray for Your couples and singles this morning. I pray that you will open up the eyes of their understanding regarding who You have called them to be. Allow them to no longer be satisfied with falseness, but prick their hearts to desire truth in their inward parts in the Name of Jesus, amen.
