He’s Right There

Have you ever been in a situation so bleak you just had to ask ‘Where is God?

If you haven’t, good for you. If you have, I’m in good company.

Read with me: And the earth was without form;and the Spirit of the Lord moved over the surface of the waters. Genesis 1:2

The earth after it was created was the definition of the word ‘bleak’. I mean, the bible describes it as ‘formless’ and dark

Does your world lack form and order right now? Is your world filled with darkness that nothing permeates?

There’s good news for you. Just as the spirit of God was right there in the midst of the formless and darkened earth, God is right there in the midst of your life.

The same God who spoke order and light into the created earth’s disorder is there to speak order and light into your life.

So when next I’m faced with a ‘Where is God’ situation, It’ll do me well to remember:

He’s right here!

Loving Your Wife God’s Way 3-The Final piece

This post has been long overdue. It’s been pending for over a year.

So that you can get the gist, find the first two parts of this and read

And ladies before you start gloating-especially if you are new to my blog, find the series on submission God’s way and please read it.

Okay guys, lets round this up.

If your relationship with your wife is supposed to be a replica of Christ’s relationship with the church, you are the representative of Christ in your home.

You cannot represent Christ to your wife if you do not know Him. No matter how much you try to love your wife outside of Christ, you will fail.

Therefore your love for your wife is not dependent on her submission to you, its should be a fruit of Christ in you.

Now,that said, if you are to be to your wife what Christ is to the church, one of your responsibilities is to be the priest of your home.

The ‘prayer warrior’ title in your home does not belong to your wife, it belongs to you. This is not to say that a woman should not pray, I am clearly stating that contrary to popular belief and opinions, it is not the woman’s job.

What you sow into your wife is what you harvest and since the harvest always outweighs the seed, check the seeds you’re sowing.

Hold on to the ultimate husband -Jesus as you continue to love your wife God’s way.

Thanks to all who followed this series. I pray you learn something you can use.

I know I’ll be back to use these things soon.
