Summary

2 Chronicles 7:12-15

12 Then the Lord appeared to Solomon at night and said to him, “I have heard your prayer and have chosen this place for Myself as a house of sacrifice. 13 If I shut up the heavens so that there is no rain, or if I command the locust to devour the land, or if I send pestilence among My people, 14 and My people [d]who are called by My name humble themselves and pray and seek My face and turn from their wicked ways, then I will hear from heaven, will forgive their sin and will heal their land. 15 Now My eyes will be open and My ears attentive to the [e]prayer offered in this place. 16 For now I have chosen and consecrated this house that My name may be there forever, and My eyes and My heart will be there perpetually.

It is inevitable that we are going to have issues, concerns, problems, and even confusion on our journey through the earth realm. Let’s keep it 100, the Bible says “Man born of woman is of few days and full of trouble. He springs up like a flower and withers away; like a fleeting shadow, he does not endure.” So you and I dealing with some life issues that we do not care to deal with is par for the course.

Here is where the power and promise of God show up in our trouble. In today’s scripture passage, it says if I shut up the heavens if I command locust If I send pestilence, plagues or pandemics and our response are right. There will be a change. It is the response of the head and heart that God is looking for in this life that we live. He has promised to keep you and sustain you. “Cast your burden to the Lord and he will sustain you; He will never allow the righteous to be shaken”

God requires Humility, Honest Conversation, and Heartfelt Repentance.

2 Chronicles 7:12-15; Job 14:1-2; Psalms 55:22

Summary

Jeremiah 31:1-3 (NASB)

“At that time,” declares the Lord, “I will be the God of all the families of Israel, and they shall be My people.” Thus says the Lord, “The people who survived the sword Found grace in the wilderness— Israel when it went to find its rest.”The Lord appeared to him from afar, saying, “I have loved you with an everlasting love; Therefore I have drawn you with lovingkindness.

Have you ever been in a place in between? Between here and there, between yea and nay, between the proverbial rock and a hard place? I think we have all found ourselves here at one time or another. Today I want to encourage you that even in this place in the wilderness, God will show up with a word that will restore, rebuild and resurrect life.

On the journey, it is easy to feel like you have been betrayed and belittled by people, and circumstances but you have a refuge and a hope in our God! Brother, you are a champion! You have made it through so much more than you give yourself credit for. You have been lied on, scandalized, forgotten, and looked over to name a few. Today God instructed me to remind you that you SURVIVED the sword. You not only won the battle, but you also won the war. The war over self-doubt, destructive thinking, pornography, poor money management, anger, bitterness, and even unbelief. You have won the war. You say to yourself “No I did not!” The fact that you are standing is enough to know that you have what it takes to win, what it takes to declare victory over your life and the life of everyone in your sphere of influence. Remember the word of God, “No weapon formed against you will prosper, and every tongue that shall rise against you in judgment you shall condemn. This is the heritage of the servants of the Lord and their right standing is of me, say the Lord. Isaiah 54:17

Brother, because you won the war you have found GRACE to keep you! In the darkest place of your existence, GRACE shows up to inform you that you are a champion and will be restored, rebuilt, and resurrected.

No matter what goes on in your life remember that God has drawn you to him, you have the purpose and power to accomplish everything that God has for you to complete.

Nehemiah saw the broken down walls of Jerusalem and knew within his heart that something had to be done about it. He did not have the authority or the resources to pull off such a big project. Nehemiah prayed and went to the King of the land to ask for what he needed to complete the job. Because of who Nehemiah was and because of his unwavering faith God put the thought into the King’s heart to give him whatever he needed to complete the work. God has given you everything you need to complete the work.

Don’t give up! You survived the wilderness, you found GRACE and you are being rebuilt!

Scriptures:

Jeremiah 31:1-4; Isaiah 54:16-17; Nehemiah 1-2

Summary

“This is the message we have heard from Him and announce to you, that God is Light, and in Him there is no darkness at all. If we say that we have fellowship with Him and yet walk in the darkness, we lie and do not practice the truth; but if we walk in the Light as He Himself is in the Light, we have fellowship with one another, and the blood of Jesus His Son cleanses us from all sin. If we say that we have no sin, we are deceiving ourselves and the truth is not in us. If we confess our sins, He is faithful and righteous to forgive us our sins and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness. If we say that we have not sinned, we make Him a liar and His word is not in us.”

Summary

Philippians 1: 12-20

“Now I want you to know, brethren, that my circumstances have turned out for the greater progress of the gospel, so that my imprisonment in the cause of Christ has become well known throughout the whole praetorian guard and to everyone else, and that most of the brethren, trusting in the Lord because of my imprisonment, have far more courage to speak the word of God without fear. Some, to be sure, are preaching Christ even from envy and strife, but some also from good will; the latter do it out of love, knowing that I am appointed for the defense of the gospel; the former proclaim Christ out of selfish ambition rather than from pure motives, thinking to cause me distress in my imprisonment. What then? Only that in every way, whether in pretense or in truth, Christ is proclaimed; and in this I rejoice. Yes, and I will rejoice, for I know that this will turn out for my deliverance through your prayers and the provision of the Spirit of Jesus Christ, according to my earnest expectation and hope, that I will not be put to shame in anything, but that with all boldness, Christ will even now, as always, be exalted in my body, whether by life or by death.”

Philippians 1:12-20 NASB1995

Although you may be Imprisoned, your situation will Improve.

Use your confinement to Inspire nations to go forward and work in their assignment.

Let your unselfish prayers Impact a brother on their journey.

No matter where I find myself, I am unstoppable! I cannot and will not be stopped by any counterattack of my antagonistic enemy. It is quite understandable to me that my enemy still does not know I cannot loose!

1 Corinthians 15:57: But thanks be to God who give us the victory through our Lord Jesus Christ.

2 Timothy 2:5 An athlete is not crowned unless he competes according to the rules.

Hebrews 12:1 Therefore since we are surrounded by such a great group of winners, let us also lay aside ever weight and sin which clings so closely and let us run with endurance the race that is set before us.

Galatians 6:9 Let’s not become discouraged in doing good for in due time we will reap, if we do not become weary!

Listen brother, you are unstoppable.

Summary

“Rejoice in the Lord always; again I will say, rejoice! Let your gentle spirit be known to all men. The Lord is near. Be anxious for nothing, but in everything by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known to God. And the peace of God, which surpasses all comprehension, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus.”

‭‭Philippians‬ ‭4:4-7‬ ‭NASB1995‬‬

In our fast paced life it is essential that we slow down.  My wife, recently retired,  has told me about countless times that she has noticed homes, building and businesses that she did not notice when she was working.  It took retirement for her to slow down and see what was in front of her.  I admonish you not to allow retirement or anything to apprehend you from slowing down.  God’s plan is clear brothers.  Be anxious for NOTHING!  God’s plan requires that we are level headed and we slow down to assess any and every situation, connection or appointment that we have been provided the opportunity to review.  Two simple words that can transform your life, two words that release new and inspiring avenues for your career and family; slow down.  

Slow down and take in the big picutre.  Slow down and enjoy the scenery. Slow down and smell the roses.  God has a plan, flow in that plan for your life.

Summary

I’m Married. Now What? 

Part 4: You Must Die…

EPHESIANS 5:25-27

25 Husbands, love your wives, just as Christ also loved the church and gave Himself up for her, 26 so that He might sanctify her, having cleansed her by the washing of water with the word, 27 that He might present to Himself the church in all her glory, having no spot or wrinkle or any such thing; but that she would be holy and blameless.

JOHN 3:16

16 “For God so loved the world, that He gave His only Son, so that everyone who believes in Him will not perish, but have eternal life.

JOHN 17:17

17 Sanctify them in the truth; Your word is truth.

Ultimately how you treat your wife is a valid reflection of who you are.  Christ died for the church and so we too as men accordingly must be willing to die for our wife.  We must be ready to give our everything for our spouse.  Culture calls us characteristics that are foreign to the word of God.

Summary

I’m Married Now What?

Part 1: Let’s Talk About Love

Kirk Franklin penned the following words and paired them with beautiful music and name the song LOVE released with the Group God’s Property in 1997.

“Love a word that comes and goes,
But few people really know,
What it means to really love somebody,
Love, though the tears may fade away,
I’m so glad your love will stay,
Cause I love you,
And you show me, Jesus,
What it really means to love.”

Love is one of those words that seems to loose its meaning in the English language.  It looses it meaning when we use it for meaningless banter.  When viewed from a Greek etymological view we see that this simple four letter word is deep and powerful.  Love has the ability to shape your world, move your world and ultimately change your world view.  

Over the next couple of weeks we are going to talk about marriage.  I know for sure that one of my assignments while I am on this earth is to strengthen marriages.  What I do know for sure is that I did not have a father to tell me how to navigate this institution that so many of us choose for our live.  After all the Bible does teach that “marriage is honorable’, so it is great that many of us choose marriage.  Many men make it a plan for their lives to marry, but so many of us have never been shown real love.  When it comes to romancing (which is one of the Greek words for Love) we have been undated with examples from cheesy romance novels to that one uncle who knows how to “get the girls”.  

As we work our way through many scriptures it is my desire that I help you get a deeper better understanding of marriage and the standard that we as men need to hold up in our marriages.

Today’s Scripture: 

1 Corinthians 13 4-7 (God’s Word Translation)

4 Love is patient. Love is kind. Love isn’t jealous. It doesn’t sing its own praises. It isn’t arrogant. 5 It isn’t rude. It doesn’t think about itself. It isn’t irritable. It doesn’t keep track of wrongs. 6 It isn’t happy when injustice is done, but it is happy with the truth. 7 Love never stops being patient, never stops believing, never stops hoping, never gives up.

Prayer Points:

Teach me what real love is

Guide me as I lead my wife in love

Teach me to be kind and patience with my wife.

Build my trust with my wife so that I am jealous of her and her accomplishments.

Help me maintain humility in all that i do with my wife.

Thank you for my wife.
