Godly Revelation

Feb. 12, 2022

Jeremiah 31:3 The LORD appeared to us in the past, saying: “I have loved you with an everlasting love; I have drawn you with unfailing kindness.

When I married my husband I had no idea of what an everlasting love would look like. I didn’t have a blueprint on making a marriage work and keeping it together because I grew up in a home where there was conflict, infidelity, and control. I thought that these things were something that you had to put up with in your marriage.

When My husband found me, he was totally different from what I grew up seeing. He was kind, calm, easy going and non-confrontational. When conflict would arise, he would walk away but I would be ready to combat the situation. He had a stronger relation with God, so he brought that into our marriage. It wasn’t until I started studying the word with him and applying it in my marriage that I began to understand what an everlasting love would look like.

1 Corinthians 13:4-7 Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud. It does not dishonor others, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs. Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth. It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres.

This is the blueprint that we use for our marriage. Weve learned to be patient with one another and respect each other's difference. We lead with love and kindness in how we talk to one another and how we treat each other. We don’t dishonor each other by lying or saying disrespectful things. I’m not saying that there won’t be times when you may get angry, but we’ve learned to resolve things and keep moving. The bible says Ephesians 4:26 Be ye angry, and sin not: let not the sun go down upon your wrath:"  We’ve learned to make up quickly before going to bed so that we can sleep restfully. Don’t keep a tally of past wrong doings. You have to let stuff go because hanging on to negativity only keeps you in bondage. Always be truthful and honest and trustworthy because without those core attributes your marriage will not last.

To have everlasting love takes hard work, commitment and most importantly love. You have to love one another the way God loves you when he gave his only son and as long as we believe in him and acknowledge him, we have everlasting life. John 3:16 For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.

So that sums it up for me who wouldn’t want an everlasting life so that we can continue God’s everlasting love. My husband and I will be married 29 years this Valentine’s Day and I look forward to spending the rest of my days with him.

Oftentimes when God has an assignment for you, it seems that the deliberation of fulfilling the task is much greater than the actual execution of the task. What's impossible to you is achievable for God. There are couples whose broken marriages will be restored through the example of your Godly marriage, if you allow God to use you as a paradigm.

The word impossible is not in God’s vocabulary because he has unassembled, rethought and rearranged it into possible.  Remember, with him all things are possible to them who believe.  Allow your belief to outshine your issues so that relationships that are not as mature as yours can see the light of God through your unconditonal love for one another.

When coupled with a strong desire to channel God’s will for your married life, he will provide a conduit to release the blessings that have been called into being so that other couples will be blessed by your witness.

For the weapons of our warfare are not carnal but mighty through God to the pulling down of strongholds 2Cor 10:4.

Do you know the Rules of Engagement? Are you suited up for battle? Are you armed and ready to defend your marriage against the things that threaten to destroy it? If not, you need to put on the full armor of God, so that you can take a stand against the devil's schemes. Here are the 6 things that you will need;

1. Your breastplate of RIGHTEOUSNESS to protect your heart from being broken and saturated with untrue influences and hurt feelings that will prevent you from doing what's right.

2. Your belt of TRUTH to protect your soul which is the center of your being that holds the key to your emotions so that the truth will always be revealed to you.

3. Shoes to spread the gospel of PEACE to stomp on the ungodly devices that try to enter in your relationship to keep you worried and anxious and jeopardize your sense of peace.

4. Your shield of FAITH to block the ungodly attacks and fiery darts from those who choose to spread malicious gossip and vile accusations to cause hopeless that leads to discord in your marriage.

5. Your helmet of SALVATION to protect your head and your mind from evil and impure thoughts that can threaten your well being and devastate the salvation of your union.

6. Your sword of the SPIRIT which is the word of God to keep your spirit lifted in times of trouble and pierce the fleshly things that can penetrate the fiber of your marriage

For the Lord is great and greatly to be praised. We must offer a sacrifice of praise unto the Lord which is the fruit of our lips giving thanks to his holy name.

When you praise God for all that he has done in your life, you are honoring who he is and the things that he's created.

He who was and is and is to come, he is sovereign, that's why you praise him for his loving kindness, his goodness and mercy and his splendor and glory.

You should praise him when you wake in the morning, as you go throughout your day and before you sleep at night. That means constantly because without him there is no us.

When you praise the Lord together you are creating unified exaltation which demonstrates that you magnify his holy name. There is power in your convenant, so use that power to bind the things that keep you from praising God and loose the things that will allow your praise to flow. You will then see how blessings will be released through your sacifice of praise.

Hebrews 13:15 By him therefore let us offer the sacrifice of praise to God continually, that is, the fruit of our lips giving thanks to his name.
