Now that is a mouthful. What I want the most is...Love, Peace, Rest, Assurance, Righteousness, humility? I have all of those things through Christ Jesus! I believe what I want most is to consistently be aware and act upon Your will, Lord. To seek You first in ALL that I do and everything else will be added unto me!! This includes a genuine love for Your Word - which I just realized from my Pastor's sermon today - is Jesus. If I love Jesus, then I already possess a love for Your Word. Lord, I want to be so rooted, tangled and tied up in You that it is difficult for 'ites' to come up and out of my flesh. I want every facet of my life to continually and consistently revolve around You.
I also just realized that my marriage was attacked this past week because of a prayer that I forwarded on Facebook for spouses to pray for their husbands. The enemy did not like that and felt the very perimeter of his camp had been breached - as my husband is the Head of the Household. If the enemy can keep me focused on my husband's perceived weaknesses, I am not able to acknowledge his strengths. My Pastor preached today on how it is up to us to cover our spouses weaknesses and encourage/build upon their strengths and vice-a-verse.
Father, I repent for my part of neglect in our marriage. Psalm 138:8 says, "The Lord WILL fulfill His purpose for me; Your steadfast love, O Lord, endures forever!" Thank You for Your Word, Lord, how it continually blesses my heart. How it speaks life to me and sure up my soul for Your Glory and my good. Your loving kindness endures forever!
what can you do in your marriage or life to expose the love of God this week? Once you decide WHAT it is...act on it...put feet to your faith, as they say, and sit back and watch God show up and show out with His blessings!
