Weeks before meeting Alexis, Jacob was wrestling with God. He had just gotten out of a relationship and was unsure if there was anyone better for him. He started going to church to pursue Jesus, trusting He would direct his steps.
One day, He walked into church, and when he saw Alexis, God told him that he would marry her one day. (Keep in mind, he didn’t even know her name.)
Alexis, on the other hand — felt as if her walk with God wasn’t firm. She wasn’t truly living for God during that time, but she was trying to. She had broken hearts before, as well as had her own heart broken – but she was actively seeking Jesus in hopes of restoration.
Jacob patiently waited two years for her. They hadn’t even spoken or tried to date during that time. Around the two year mark, they began to talk and spend time together. Then, God gave Jacob a vision in a dream. In his dream, Alexis was torn between him and another man that she was pursuing, and God told him to tell her that he knew about her dream, and that she was supposed to choose Him. She was to be his wife. (BOLD right!?)
She hadn’t told ANYONE about this situation. So understandably, she was startled and needed to sit on it. She remembers telling the Lord, “I will break this guys’ heart. I will tell him to go away.”
And then the Lord said to her, “you can be with someone else and have a good marriage, or you can be with Jacob and have a great marriage. I will let you choose.”
It was then that the scales fell off her eyes. That moment taught her that the Lord knows what’s best for us, even when we may think our ways are better.
Alexis stepped into the beautiful covenant of marriage with a man that would truly love her and put her first. A man that would be head of household and lead their family in the way God wanted them to walk.
If you’re reading this, I want you to know that God will, and WANTS to do the impossible through you. He wants to bless you & move mountains in your life, but you have to be where He wants you to be. You have to be willing to move out of the situation you’re currently in. God will do the heavy lifting, but you’ve got to move your feet.
