On Instagram (@sherylynnerochester) I posted: In order to get a king, you need to be in the presence of the King.
What stood out the most was in the comment I wrote: if you really had a relationship with God you wouldn’t be choosing the help. I know that sounds kind of harsh, but there are some people not worth your heart or your time. Some women are desperate for love so they choose anybody. To avoid this you have to be in the presence of the Lord every chance you get.
A lot of people don’t want to pray. They don’t want to spend time in the word and they don’t want to draw closer to God. When they do pray, it is only a prayer of God Send Me My Husband, now! There’s no deep connection, relationship, or communion with the Father. When singles pray that prayer without a true relationship or connection with God, here comes the help ready to bring you heartbreak.
Now, when I say the help, I’m talking about men that will do you wrong, cheat on you, rob you of your joy, and put you in a place where you’re far away from God to the point you are compromising your relationship with God just like Laila’s in the book, God Send Me My Husband. Now, that’s the help. But a king will treat you as a queen. A king will love you like Christ loves the Church. A king will want to be at the feet of King Jesus. A king will never cause you to compromise your relationship with the one and only true King.
But in order for you to know the difference between who the help is and who your king is, you need a relationship with the Father. When you fast, pray, and read the word of God it’s there you learn the King’s heart. It’s there you learn discernment. It’s there you’ll be able to face being single and being okay with it. It’s there you’ll learn how to treat and talk to the future king God will place in your life.
My favorite movie is One Night With The King. There came a point in time where she had to talk to the king God gave her but she couldn’t do it at any moment. So, what did she do? She fasted and prayed for three days. No food. Nothing. She got before her King. When the fast was over then and only then was she able to speak to her king. She was able to get to her king all because she went into the presence of the King, God first.
Get into the presence of God first before your king arrives. It will help so much in the long run.
So much happens when you’re in the presence of God. But, for all chosen and virtuous women of God (Christian singles) it’s in the presence of God where you’ll not only get God but you’ll get your king as well …in time.
Today, start with praying for 15 minutes and if you’re bold go for the full hour and more. Open the Bible and pray what you’ve read. Start there by spending time with the King who loves you first and only wants the best for you.
