Most of us have heard the phrase "a man of his word" describing the chivalrous characteristics of strong-willed man. It means he stays true to the promises that he makes. Nothing can be more true when we are talking about Christ. Christ is The Man/God of His word.
He does not say anything He could not or will not do. He even tells us "My Father's house has many rooms; if that were not so, would I have told you that I am going there to prepare a place for you?" John 14:2.
Someone told me once "good luck finding someone like what you are describing". I was describing the characteristic of a good Christian man, one that puts God at every aspect of his life, including replacing lust with love.
To many this strong-willed, respectful man seems like a myth. But my reality says, do not rely on the man, but rely on God. Or in men's case do not rely on the woman, but rather on God.
Jesus said, "Therefore I tell you, whatever you ask for in prayer, believe that you have received it, and it will be yours." Mark 11:24. The key word in this verse is "believe". Mountains can move if we believe, you think I am exaggerating, ask the Egyptians. Their mountain literally moved when they prayed and because they believe. So if I am genuinely asking with faith for a man of God, why would He not deliver?
When did God stop fulfilling His promises?
My topic today may have the theme of "men", but in reality His commitment extends to every part of our lives.
Please don't take my words for it. Go talk to God, experience Him for yourself. Fall in love with Him and I pray and hope that He will show you way more than He has shown me.
Your humble sister in Christ,
