“If you are married, you’re married to the right one!” -Dr. David Jeremiah
Countless people have asked themselves if they married the right one. Many who find themselves in a season of disillusionment conclude that they must have made a mistake when selecting a lifelong partner.
Maybe you find yourself staring at your spouse and wondering, “Are you the one?” Scripture brings us insight on this very question! Although the surrounding circumstances had nothing to do with marriage, the question and the basis for the answer apply nicely to our context.
“When John heard in prison what Christ was doing, he sent his disciples to ask Him, ‘Are you the one who was to come, or should we expect someone else?'” (Matthew 11:2, emphasis added) It’s interesting that John should ask this, especially since he had already received revelation from God that Jesus was indeed the Lamb of God. He knew Jesus’ identity and declared it publicly prior to his arrest and imprisonment. However, human experience teaches us that discouraging events can leave a person disillusioned. In all honesty, John wanted to hear from Jesus, “Are you the one?”
How I love Jesus’ response! He tells John, in essence, “Believe upon the miracles!” Friend, if you’re asking God about your spouse being the one, hear Him respond the same to you: “Believe upon the miracle!” What miracle, you ask?
“…the two will become one flesh” (Ephesians 5:31).
Do you know that the Holy Spirit emphasized this truth FIVE TIMES in the Word of God? He wants us to understand that God said one and never meant undone!
It’s time we abandon the question, “Did I marry the right one?” It is unhealthy to even entertain such thoughts. Give your marriage to God, for He does all things well. In fact, the power to restore is His specialty! Trust Him for this work in your life.
