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

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.

Summary

…but the Lord is faithful.

2 Thessalonians 3:1-5 (NASB)

Finally, brothers and sisters, pray for us that the word of the Lord will spread rapidly and be glorified, just as it was also with you; 2 and that we will be rescued from troublesome and evil people; for not all have the faith. 3 But the Lord is faithful, and He will strengthen and protect you from the evil one. 4 We have confidence in the Lord concerning you, that you are doing, and will do, what we command. 5 May the Lord direct your hearts to the love of God and to the perseverance of Christ.

This is a statement from a person who has had the opportunity to experience God in a real way. To shift mid thought and drop a line about God’s faithfulness speak volumes about Paul’s relationship with God. The promise of God is that when we accept him we are his children. What he does for one child, he will do for another. I say that to lay the premise that if Paul can experience a faithful God then so can you and I. Say it with me, but the Lord is faithful! Yes, yes, He is! He has promised to keep us from evil.

As I was meditating God shared with me that evil is not always a massive external issued that you have to call heaven and earth to move. Just like the voice of God, evil will whisper in your ear word of doubt, words of unbelief, words of failure. I have said it before and I will continue to say it all of my life the only weapon that the enemy of our soul has is distraction. If the fallen angels can distract you long enough so that you do not believe, then they have won that battle. However they have not won the war. There are time in our lives that we have to step back, refresh, review our strategy and then move forward. David, before he was king, was leading a group of men in battle. Upon their return to their encampment they found everything destroyed and everyone gone. David, cried, David wiped his eyes, David prayed, David pursued, David won! God has promised to not to allow the evil one to overtake us and this is something to be glad about and give God praise for. No mater where you find yourself. If you believe, you will win.
