Who is God – Day 13

Isaiah 62:5

As a young man marries a young woman, so will your Builder marry you; as a bridegroom rejoices over his bride, so will your God rejoice over you.

The Thought

We must stay a second day on this verse in order to take a brief look at the word “bridegroom” which is a description of God that more of us are familiar with. The book of Revelation reveals the second coming of Jesus as The Bridegroom coming for His bride. What an exciting time that will be for those of us who believe, and are waiting impatiently for His return.

Let us rejoice and be glad and give Him glory. For the wedding of The Lamb has come, and His bride has made herself ready (Revelation 19:7).

In responding to a criticism from some disciples of John the Baptist who wanted to know why the disciples of Jesus were not fasting, Jesus described Himself. This was His response:- How can the guests of The Bridegroom mourn while He is with them? The time will come when The Bridegroom will be taken from them; then they will fast (Matthew 9:15).

The disciples certainly did fast and pray, when the Bridegroom was taken from them, because they didn’t know what else to do in that upper room, but wait for what Jesus had promised. They had no idea what they were waiting for! They were surprised, even shocked when they heard the wind and saw tongues of fire. That experience changed their world but also that of millions of others since that time.


Give some thought today to what God being your bridegroom really means.

If you are male, then having a bridegroom will not feature in your mind. (If it does then please read Leviticus 18:22 and think of Jesus being your very best friend, one you go jogging with or cycle with.)
