“And I John saw the holy city, new Jerusalem, coming down from God out of heaven, prepared as a bride adorned for her husband.” Revelation 21:2
God prepares His blessing for you and He prepares you to receive it. “But you don’t understand. I love God, I know God’s purpose for my life, I can throw down in the kitchen, and I’ve been waiting for a long time and I’m not married yet! Where is God’s man for me? ” God hears you and His response to you is, “Patience My dear. I am preparing you to receive My best and I am preparing My best to receive YOU.” God gave John a vision of the holy city, new Jerusalem, coming down from God out of heaven, prepared as a bride adorned for her husband. While you may think God is moving too slow, He is preparing you, adjusting you, adorning you, making you ready to receive what He has for you. Only God can prepare you for a king and only God can prepare a king to receive you. Eye hasn’t seen nor ear heard nor has it entered into the heart of man the things which God has prepared for them that love Him yet He has revealed it to us by His Spirit. If it is true that you love God and know that He loves you, you would say “Lord, take Your time! Prepare me! I trust Your timing.” Let patience have her perfect work that you may be perfect and entire wanting nothing. Impatience can cause you to miss out on God’s best for your life and fall for the imitation before the real thing. You don’t want someone that looks right, sounds right, acts right, but something just ain’t right about him. You want someone with a different spirit like Joshua that will fit you like a hand in glove. Someone who will be easy to love, easy to submit to, who will be your bestfriend, will stand by your side, be a spiritual leader in your home. Someone that will love God more than he loves you and who will love you more than he loves himself. Someone that will cherish you, be faithful to you and a great example to your children. Is not a man of this quality worth waiting for? Maybe you have had children from a previous relationship, have been divorced, been promiscuous in your past, have been sexually abused, and the enemy is making you feel worthless like you don’t deserve God’s best. That is a lie. You are a new creature in Christ and you deserve God’s best as much as anyone else. “Patience My dear. I am preparing you to receive My best and I am preparing My best to receive YOU.”
Prayer: Father, I know You love me and I know You know what’s best for me. I trust You and I choose to wait. Take Your time. Bless that man that You are preparing for me. Cause Your face to shine upon him and enrich him in every way. Prepare me for him and let me be adorned by You. In Jesus’ name, Amen.
