Because I married young my father had to give his consent. Not just to the proposer who did ask him for my hand in marriage. But to the county courthouse. My father had to sign his name so that we could get a marriage license. Without the consent of the father a girl my age at the time could not get married.
Oh beloved, aren’t we blessed? The Lord consented to send us Jesus, who would sign the guarantee for us to be redeemed and betrothed to Himself. You and I are so loved and adored! We’re cherished beyond measure. We’ve been born of the Spirit into a new life! And there’s more!
God wants you to know that His desire is that you be 100% saved so you can be 100% Spirit filled and 100% changed. Otherwise this salvation is not going to work. His Gospel changes everything! Jesus came that you can have a real life, an abundant life, better than you ever had without Him. He has given you every good and perfect gift and it comes straight from Him. You are no longer an orphan with no hope of adoption. You are no longer a sinner with no hope of change. You are no longer just waiting and hoping you make it to heaven. He taught His disciples, and you are one of them, to pray “Your Kingdom Come, Your will be Done on earth (right now) as it is in Heaven!!”
This is your shining hour! Your day to embrace the Truth and live for Jesus with no holds barred. It’s your day to receive the promises by faith. It’s your day to say Yes to Jesus for your holy calling and yes to the Spirit of the Living God with complete abandon. This consent God gave for you to receive salvation combined with your consent to live for Him combine to an impenetrable bond of Spirit wisdom, power and love. You are now a sword wielding, praise giving fully grown child of the Kingdom! No weapon formed against you will prosper! No other kingdom will take your heart! No enemy will capture you! All because you are living In the Spirit, In Christ and In the dominion of the King of Kings!
God loves you and He’s for you! Don’t consent to the enemy’s attacks any longer. Put on the whole armor of God and reach for the Truth to carry it wherever you go. Your King has given you all authority as He has seated you in heavenly places with Him. Rejoice as you now live fully clothed in the righteousness of God as you live in the Light of His Glory & Grace!
