We all know that GOD wants to be worshiped in spirit and in truth.
What about us and the relationship of these two outside of our worship?
The relationship between spirit and truth I mean.
Are we aligned in all areas of our lives or are we contradicting ourselves and denying one or the other?
In other words, are we truly honest to ourselves and to others and how does this truth demonstrate itself?
I will give you an example where I have recently noticed that many of us will not be aligned and not true to our spirit and to others, let alone to GOD.
It is when it comes to mating.
Lets do a little experiment:
Suppose you fancied someone you see regularly, perhaps at work or at church.
You would look for opportunities to talk to this person and you would imagine getting closer to them, probably, you would also speak to GOD about them and ask GOD if this person is your spouse…?
What if GOD confirmed it and then, one day, this person approached you more closely – or they would message you surprisingly… what would you do?
How would you respond?
If this person would approach you like a future spouse would…?
Would you let them see and hear and feel that you, too, have been praying about them?
Or would you pretend that you have no idea what they are talking about?
Would you play games with them?
Or would you drop your guard?
Hard to say what we would do, isn’t it?
What I came to see is that we are not used to being truthful.
Even if we do our best not to lie.
Being truthful is an entirely different level and it is not our “default” response, we have to be very intentional about it in our daily lives if that is something we want to do.
When it comes to mating, it may even be harder for us.
We are interested in this person, interested for them to see and hopefully to like our true self, and yet, this is where being truthful is the most difficult, when we want to be liked.
And if we were, would we even perhaps alienate the person?
If we are too truthful in our jobs, at least in most jobs, that would lead to problems for sure.
And obviously, we can chose if we would like to keep our job or find a new one.
But a spouse? That one isn’t as easy.
Do we even want a spouse who doesn’t truly know who we are?
Many people play a role when they are mating – and then, after some time, they cannot maintain their “game” any longer and the relationship breaks down…
I don’t know what you think, my friend.
Me, I have made my choice.
If I hear from GOD about a person and they don’t hear from HIM about me, I have probably “misunderstood” the message and will back off – on the other hand, if I would pretend I hadn’t seen them in visions, that would make the entire “thing” so random, now, wouldn’t it?
I don’t always get it right, I am not perfect, I make many mistakes.
And yet, the one thing I am not joking with is GOD’s voice.
I want to take everything HE tells me very serious.
And when the HOLY SPIRIT nudges me to do something, I will do it.
The only thing I am worried about is not what the other person would think, because in the end, no relationship can work out without GOD’s approval, but if a person will reject me because I am a believer or because I am going by what GOD tells me, then I can easily find another person, but I can NEVER find another GOD.
No, the reaction of the other person regarding my faith is not the most difficult part.
For me – and I believe I am not the only one – it will get the most tricky when it comes to the enemy imitating GOD’s voice and telling me that this is from GOD when it is truly not.
That’s my problem.
Now and in the past.
I am in limbo right now.
It looks as if I have heard GOD wrong, although I have been fasting and praying about this for many months.
And I know I have done nothing wrong.
I have been obedient.
Things went “weird”… to say the least.
On the other hand, that, too, could be the enemy trying to keep us both from fulfilling our destinies and receiving the answers to our prayers, because I believe, he, too, has been praying for a godly spouse…
It doesn’t look good, friends.
But will I make it any better if I am untruthful to GOD and to what I believe HE told me about this man?
I will do what I do best instead.
Worship GOD and thank HIM for bringing this matter to a result HE wills for me, for us.
There is nothing the enemy can do if GOD wants this.
I will trust GOD.
Not me or my ideas of how this should go.
Also not him and his actions or words…
GOD will either bring us together or HE doesn’t see us as a match.
What are your experiences, friends?
With any matters close to your heart, relationships, purpose, health… have you been in a situation where GOD has spoken to you and then it didn’t look as if what HE said to you will come true?
What did you do?
Did you try to solve the matter with your own power and strength and means?
Or did you trust HIM?
And what happened?
Me, I will trust HIM and stand on HIS promise.
I hope and pray that this will inspire, bless, heal and encourage you. And that THE LORD will bless you abundantly in all areas of your life. That HE will keep you and shine HIS face upon you and bring you PEACE. In JESUS’ name I pray. AMEN.
