Romans 12:2 (NET) Do not be conformed to this present world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind, so that you may test and approve what is the will of God – what is good and well-pleasing and perfect.
We saw previously that there are three attributes of the will of God as perceived by the renewed mind. It will be good, it will be acceptable or well-pleasing, and it will be perfect.
We have seen that when it comes to who to marry, only those who are born of God are good.
Today we shall begin to examine the second attribute of the will of God:
ACCEPTABLE OR WELL-PLEASING
Whoever you marry must be well-pleasing to you. This means you should be attracted to that person. There should be ‘butterflies in your stomach’ when you think about that person. This is very important. This is the person you are going to spend the rest of your life with. But be careful you are controlled by your renewed mind.
If you are already married and you notice that that passionate love and attraction has run out, ask the Lord to restore it in your marriage. His first miracle was a sign. He restored the wine at a wedding when the wine ran out. Wine symbolizes joy and excitement. If the wine in your marriage has run out, please ask the Lord to come and restore it, and He will.
Proverbs 5:18 says: Let thy fountain be blessed: and rejoice with the wife of thy youth.
This is God’s will concerning marriage; that a husband and wife be always excited about each other.
Many have asked me: What if the will of God is someone I don’t like?
I say God is not wicked. God will give you somebody that is acceptable to you. And even if that is not the case at the beginning, it will be the case before you eventually marry that person.
Go in today remembering that Christ rejoices over His church. He rejoices over you with singing (Zephaniah 3:17). And He is jealous over you.
