Amazing how deception sets in...for *so many*...so easily...
All day, I've been hearing, "Fairytale. Now go and look it up" in my spirit. And so, I did:
Fairytale: a story about fairies; told to amuse children; an interesting but highly implausible story; often told as an excuse
Synonyms: absurd, bizarre, curious, dreamlike, fictional, flaky, imaginative, kinky, mythical, off beat, pipe dream, poetic, preposterous, shadowy, unreal, visionary, whimsical, wild
Proverbs 18:21 tells us that death and life are in the power of the tongue. How many times have you heard a woman say, "I want the fairytale." They want childlike amusement? They want to live an interestingly unrealistic kind of life? *Really?!?* Oh, and I went and looked up the definition of "implausible" too:
Implausible: not plausible; not having the appearance of truth or credibility
So, they want to live out the kind of relationship that has no appearance of truth or credibility? Yeah. Whomever said that "Marriage is not a fairytale", they were speaking more biblical truth (John 8:32) than they probably thought. Bottom line...
1) Be sure in your prayers, you seek godly *understanding* re: just what you are praying for (Proverbs 4:7).
2) Be willing to accept the fact that what you say you want is not always what you really mean and so therefore...
3) Trust that when the Holy Spirit edits your prayer requests, that is an act of *mercy* rather than *rejection* (Romans 8:26-27).
Personally, I've never really been big on fairytales. *Now*, more than ever, I see why.
Yep. Marriage ain't a fairytale.What it *is*, though, is a union that is ordained by Adonai.
That's the truth and God grants us things based in truth.
Not fairy dust...and castles...and Prince Charmings (charm is deceitful, remember?-Proverbs 31:30).
