SINGLES- How Do I Know If Someone Really Loves Me?

How to know if he/she really loves.

All Amnon wanted was to satisfy that rush of adrenalin. He went so far, as to think he was in love, but once his lust was pacified, love vanished into thin air.

Love is willing to wait, lust demands immediate satisfaction. Never forget that. True love will not insist that you compromise your virtue. True love will protect. True love will honour. True love will respect.

So what more is true love?

Amnon feigned sickness and deceived his father!

True love will not pretend, deceive or trap you. He was never interested in the food. Amnon refused to consider the consequences.

True love is not stupid. True love stands to reason in respect to God’s standard Amnon’s love for Tamar was not natural. It was incest.

True love will not enter into perversion to prove itself; Amnon forced Tamar and raped her, despite that Tamar called him ‘brother’

True love will protect, it will not violate your sanctity. Amnon hated Tamar afterward.

True love is not fickle, instant, or temporal, it is enduring and lasting. True love does not go back and forth. It is stable. Even when tried, it still stands strong.

I pray for you today, that God will guide you, lead and help you to differentiate between true love and lust. You will not miss it in Jesus name!

I break off from all emotional bondage. Spirit of God, lead me and guide me in my relationship, I resist every spirit of confusion and manipulations.

Better is a dinner of herbs where love is than a stalled ox and hatred therewith. –Proverbs 15:17 (KJV)

I Am Directed By His Word

I Am Directed By His Word

Reading Time: 2 minutes

Do you know you can be directed by His Word? Now, imagine traveling to an unknown destination and you don’t have a map or guide. Imagine getting lost in an unknown city and having nobody to help you retrace your steps. Imagine being on a bus and the driver asks you for your destination and you are confused.

There is nothing as pleasant as knowing where you are going. It puts your mind at rest and gives you confidence. If the driver is taking a wrong route, you can quickly notify him or call the attention of others to it.

Such is the word of God. We are sojourners in this land, sure you must have heard that before. God, in His infinite wisdom, provided us with a map to guide us as we navigate this earth. We are not supposed to walk alone.

Your word is a lamp to my feet and a light to my path. – Psalm 119:105 ESV

The word of God brings illumination. We receive light via the word of God. We receive direction when we study the word of God.

The word of God takes away confusion.

What does a lamp do? It helps you see. Put a lamp in a dark room and you will see the effect.

The presence of light eliminates darkness. This tells us that the word of God can flush out every dark and hidden area of our life.

As children, we should study and obey God’s word always. This will help us go through the path of life with the confidence that we are divinely directed in what we do.

ACTION POINT:
Study God’s word before you leave the house

PRAYER
Oh Lord, direct me as I read and meditate on your word in Jesus name. Amen.

DECLARATION
I am divinely directed via God’s word. I receive grace to obey God and His word.

How Do I Know If Someone Really Loves Me?

How Do I Know If Someone Really Loves Me?

Reading Time: 3 minutes

What exactly is true love? How do I know if a man truly loves me? How do I know if a lady truly loves me?

While putting in mind that there are so many definitions and perceptions of what true love is, it is pertinent to remind ourselves that true love can only be defined by Scriptural standards. Why is this so? God is love.

True love can only come from anyone that really knows God. A man that doesn’t know God is incapable of showing true love. He may be caring and nice by your own standards, but as long as He doesn’t know God, he doesn’t understand the dynamics of true love.

That is why we will be going back into the Bible to see the true definition of love.

And it came to pass after this, that Absalom the son of David had a fair sister, whose name was Tamar; and Amnon the son of David loved her. And Amnon was so vexed, that he fell sick for his sister Tamar; for she was a virgin; and Amnon thought it hard for him to do anything to her. –2Samuel 13:1-2 (KJV)

In our devotion this morning, the story of Amnon comes to mind. Verse one of the above scripture tells us that Amnon was in love with his sister.

Verse two tells us that she was so vexed with love that he fell sick. It was no longer a soul’s battle; it became rottenness in his bones.

From the above, one will naturally conclude that this is genuine love. What do you think? Was the love genuine?

For him to fall sick, he must really be in love! Isn’t that how some men come around you and truthfully tell you that they can’t eat again, sleep again because of love? Can we conclude about a man’s love for a woman by virtue of his being “vexed” to the point of sickness?

Look at a few translations:

Amnon was obsessed with his sister Tamar to the point of making himself sick over her…–2Samuel 13:2 (MSG)

Can obsession equal true love?

And Amnon was so troubled that he fell sick…–2Samuel 13:2 (AMP)

Can being troubled equal true love?

And he was so deeply in love that he became ill… –2Samuel 13:2 (BBE)

Can being deeply in love equal true love?                    

Amnon became frustrated to the point of illness on account of his sister Tamar. –2Samuel 13:2 (NIV)

Can being frustrated equal true love?

Well, before we conclude, let’s see what happened a few verses away.

Howbeit he would not hearken unto her voice: but, being stronger than she, forced her, and lay with her. –2Samuel 13:2 (KJV)

Here is the Message translation:

But he wouldn’t listen. Being much stronger than she, he raped her. –2Samuel 13:2 (MSG)

This couldn’t be true love! How would you rape someone you profess to love? Something is not quite right there. Sometimes all he wants is sex. That is not love! Sometimes, all she wants is your money. That is not true love!

To be continued…

CONFESSION FOR THE DAY
God loves me. I will comprehend what true love is and operate within its boundaries. I am not confused. I have a sound mind. I receive God’s kind of love

PRAYER FOR THE DAY
I break off from all emotional bondage. Spirit of God, lead me and guide me in my relationship, I resist every spirit of confusion and manipulations.

THOUGHT FOR THE DAY
Better is a dinner of herbs where love is than a stalled ox and hatred therewith. –Proverbs 15:17 (KJV)

 ACTION PLAN FOR THE DAY
Adjust your attitudes and start relating with the one who truly loves

How To Receive God’s Promises

How To Receive God’s Promises

Reading Time: < 1 minute

A promise is defined as a declaration or assurance that one will do something or that a particular thing will happen. Do receive God’s promises.

God has promised in his word that he will do quite a lot of things for us.

For example, one of such promises is found in

Your Seed I will establish forever, and I will build up your throne for all generations. – Psalm 89:4 AMP

The first part of the scripture above is a promise from God and we should always pray and confess these promises over our lives.

God wants to establish us forever! Wow!

This was the same thing he told Abraham and we all know that he fulfilled his promise. Today, even unbelievers know Abraham.

This assures us that God will always do what he says he will do.

May God grant us more understanding.

Prayer for children:
Dear Lord, help me to always put my trust in you to achieve what you have purposed for me according to your promise for my life in Jesus name, Amen.

Prayer for parents:
Lord, we receive grace to teach our children your word till it becomes part of them.

Action plan:
Pray, confess, and obey God’s word always.

Declaration:
I receive the manifestation of God’s promises for my life.

The One Thing That Will Make Your Relationship Work Part 4

The One Thing That Will Make Your Relationship Work Part 4

Reading Time: 2 minutes

Continued from yesterday…

9. God’s word will renew your mind and make you become a better person

Are you wondering how you make some changes especially concerning old habits that seemed ingrained in you and tattooed on your mind? God’s word is the way out. The word of God brings transformation. It can lift a man from the miry clay to the mountain top.

And be not conformed to this world: but be ye transformed by the renewing of your mind, that ye may prove what is that good, and acceptable, and perfect, will of God. (Romans 12:2 KJV)

10. God’s word will help you to know your rights in God and get the best in your relationship, marriage and home.

Finally, it is in God’s word that you get to know and discover your rights in God and lay claim on them. You are not to be overcome by sin again. The bond of iniquity ought not to have a hold on you again. Its power has been broken. Sin shall no longer lord it over you. You are no longer the sinner trying to be righteous, you are the righteous whom the devil is trying to trap.

The power of lack, insufficiency, and poverty has been broken in your life. You have all things in God right now. The power of sicknesses and diseases has been crushed in your life! That cancer has no place in your body. That arthritis is no longer your portion. That heart condition has been taken care of…all these truths and more are what belong to you as a child of God.

When you study God’s word and discover what He has done for you when his body hung on the cross, you will have the boldness to demand what belongs to you in God!

May God grant you more understanding!

I pray for you this morning, every tree in your life and destiny that my God has not planted, be uprooted now in Jesus name!

CONFESSION FOR THE DAY
I am a student of the word

PRAYER FOR THE DAY
Ask for the grace to stay with the word

THOUGHT FOR THE DAY
Josh 1:8[NET]This law scroll must not leave your lips! You must memorize it day and night so you can carefully obey all that is written in it. Then you will prosper and be successful.

ACTION PLAN FOR THE DAY
Decide to obey God’s word

BIBLE READING FOR THE DAY
Josh 1
