Our relationship with God is demonstrated through marriage and family.
The Lord opened a door, for me recently, into a deeper understanding of many things. One of which is the fear of doubt.
The other day, I heard yet another saying, "I've been struggling with doubt" and I blurted out this new revelation from the Lord. I thought I'd share it here.
When a man choses a woman for marriage, and she accepts, that man does not yet possess her heart. It's AFTER she accepts, she will go through a trial of doubt. Every human being goes through this, whether or not they admit it.
There comes a time, before the wedding when each one will wonder if they have made the right decision. "Is this truly the right thing to do?"
Once these doubts are dealt with, only then do each other truly possess the other.
The same with the Lord. Jesus calls us His Bride. He knows you will go through the valley of doubt and He cherishes this time in our lives. Why? Because it means that when you come to the final decision, truly you belong to Him. He already knows you do not truly belong to Him, until you have faced and conquered doubt.
The day will come when you stand up to the doubt, make a final decision, and only then are you truly sold out to the Lord.
So knowing that doubt must come, and knowing that Jesus cherishes those who have come through the fire, why do you fear having doubts?
Is it truly 'doubt' you feel guilty about? Or is it the fear of having doubts? Actually, it's the fear of having doubt because you feel it is a turning away from the Lord. It is not. It is a trial we must all walk through. Those who come through it victoriously, will have been tried by fire. It is these, the Lord waits for.
