The World, Your Bridal Chamber

27 Apr

The World, Your Bridal Chamber …

Every bride seeks to appear beautiful in the eyes of her groom. The custom of the ancient Hebrews was the bride and groom would stay separate for a year.

The groom would prepare a place for the bride, the bride would prepare herself for the groom; her mission was to make herself beautiful. A woman making herself beautiful knows things often get worse before they get better.

It’s a necessary part of becoming more beautiful. If you’re born again, you’re the bride and now is your time of preparation.

That’s why you and Jesus are separated; its the time given you to prepare for marriage, to become beautiful in His eyes, beautiful in spirit, in love, in faith, in joy, in peace.

Often, before we become more beautiful, we must appear less beautiful. So, if you’re looking at yourself, your heart, your attitude, your spirituality, your selfishness…it can be pretty scary…Don’t be discouraged.

For it’s in seeing her lack of beauty that the bride becomes beautiful in the Lord. So you’re not the picture of beauty or spirituality. It’s okay. This is the time of your preparation. You don’t have to be beautiful. You have to become beautiful.

Let us rejoice and be glad and give him glory! For the wedding of the Lamb has come, and his bride has made herself ready. Revelation 19:7

Seek today not to look good but to become good, not to appear beautiful, but to become beautiful in the eyes of God.

Walk daily with God at your side!

Love always,

Ed
