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.

Genesis 1:26-28

Psalms 128

Blessings on all who reverence and trust the Lord—on all who obey him!

Their reward shall be prosperity and happiness.

Your wife shall be contented in your home. And look at all those children! There they sit around the dinner table as vigorous and healthy as young olive trees. 

That is God’s reward to those who reverence and trust him.

May the Lord continually bless you with heaven’s blessings as well as with human joys.

May you live to enjoy your grandchildren! And may God bless Israel!

Psalms 23

1The Lord is my Shepherd [to feed, to guide and to shield me],I shall not want. He lets me lie down in green pastures; He leads me beside the still and quiet waters.He refreshes and restores my soul (life); He leads me in the paths of righteousness for His name’s sake.Even though I walk through the [sunless] [a]valley of the shadow of death,I fear no evil, for You are with me; Your rod [to protect] and Your staff [to guide], they comfort and console me. You prepare a table before me in the presence of my enemies. You have anointed and refreshed my head with [b]oil; My cup overflows. Surely goodness and mercy and unfailing love shall follow me all the days of my life, And I shall dwell forever [throughout all my days] in the house and in the presence of the Lord.

Host: S. Geoffrey Monts

It’s In You!

Morning Meditation for men: s4-EP24. “It’s in you” Host S Geoffrey Monts

IT’S IN YOU!

Season 4

Ep: 24

Praise God the Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, who’s blessed us in Christ with every spiritual blessing in the heavens.Ephesian 1:3

In Christ Jesus we have everything we need to be what he has called us to be!  Never think that you are not adequate, that you have been poorly equipped for the journey!  You have it in you.  

Peace

Prosperity

Love

Forgiveness

A position in His Kingdom 

An eternal inheritance

Healing

Spiritual power

Grace…

We often do not understand what we have because we are bogged down with the cares, concerns and culture of this present age.  It is challenging to navigate the world as we know it.  Here is my suggestion when you are bogged down and your life has little to no movement, pray this.

Ephesians 1:18-19 I pray that the eyes of your heart may be enlightened, so that you will know what is the hope of His calling, what are the riches of the glory of His inheritance in the saints, and what is the boundless greatness of His power toward us who believe. These are in accordance with the working of the strength of His might

Listen the job, the assignment, the the mission, the charge that God has placed on your life you have not been sent out without what you need to be successful.  God has empowered you to accomplish His will and His purpose.

As men we can sometimes have an authority issue, when we question ourselves about the level of authority that God has placed in us.  Questions like, and I adequate; did God really call me; can I lead this family; can I write this book; what about my past God; what will people say?  I have often said I will NEVER go into politics because when they started digging up my past, it would be M-E-S-S-Y!  And I am not ready to have that part of my life exposed to the world.  However, if God told me to do the work, I know that he would equip me and shield my past so I would be able to do the work with integrity.

Remember, you have what you need in you to be successful in this life.  Now Go and walk in your God given authority as a man of God.  Walk with your head up and your chest out and lead with God love.  You have got this!

Prayer Prompts:

Faith & Courage to live has God has instructed.

Open my eyes so I can be enlightened.

Help me see the hope of your calling in my family, the culture and the world

Show the the riches of his glory.

Thank you for being part of the #RiseAndGrindCrew! I am glad you are here. It is my prayer that the #MorningMeditationForMen podcast/prayercast are helping you to obtain and maintain a deep rich relationship with Jesus Christ, all while enjoying a deliciously brewed rich cup of coffee!
