The confidence of my calling enables me to overcome every difficulty without shame, for I have an intimate revelation of this God. And my faith in him convinces me that he is more than able to keep all that I’ve placed in his hands safe and secure until the fullness of his appearing. 2 Timothy 1:12
Today during my private Bible Study I learned about a Jewish wedding tradition that touched my heart so greatly. Just before the couple are united, the bride must circle around the groom seven times. It actually becomes her dance of love that tells her beloved now her entire world will revolve around him. Everything she does and decision she makes from this point on will be based on her loving relationship with her husband.
Since Jesus is the Bridegroom of the church, then we His beloved needs to revolve around Him and His ways. And since we are the church, that means we need to lovingly do the dance around Jesus as we live our lives through Him. Your personal, work, spiritual, emotional, rest times, plans, hopes and dreams should all revolve around your relationship with your Beloved Jesus. Not out of a sense of duty, but love to create a beautiful life with Him, so through it you will sow beauty and love into others lives, so they will want to do the dance too.
Have you gifted your Beloved Bridegroom with this dance of love? Do you include Him in all your decisions and what you do and say? Is He the center of your world? I guarantee, when you place Him in the center, He is more than able to hold everything in your life together, especially in the difficult times. Give Him the place of honor He deserves in your life and you will benefit beyond anything you could have imagined.
