The Effect of Faith In Marriage –Part 2

The Effect of Faith In Marriage –Part 2

Reading Time: 2 minutes

COUPLES-

Continued from yesterday.

Let’s look at this scripture below well. We will see the faith process. Whether you are believing God for babies, contract, prosperity, or general well-being the process of faith must be completed.

For verily I say unto you, That whosoever shall say unto this mountain, Be thou removed, and be thou cast into the sea; and shall not doubt in his heart, but shall believe that those things which he saith shall come to pass; he shall have whatsoever he saith. –Mark 11:23 (KJV)

Let me analyze the faith process here.

1. You must speak to your mountain. Don’t speak about it, speak to it. Address it because you have authority.

2. Speak and give direction to the mountain.

3. Don’t allow doubt in your heart.

4. Believe that you have what you SAY.

5. Then, You will have what you say.

6. Thank God in advance. The faith process is not complete until you thank God by faith for your answers.

The big question is, what are you saying about the situation you are trusting God to see changes?

Do you pray?  Declare God’s word and then begin to worry?

Its time as believers to begin to exercise our faith against the attacks of the enemy. Any issue the enemy brings our way is an attack on our faith.

We can deal with the enemy by exercising our faith.

Above all, taking the shield of faith, wherewith ye shall be able to quench all the fiery darts of the wicked.  –Ephesians 6:16 (KJV)

With our shield of faith we quench every fiery darts the wicked one throws at us.

When we have issues in our marriage, issues with our spouse, or our in-laws, it is not the person that is the issue. It is the wicked one stirring up issues to steal your joy, peace, prosperity and health.

Rise up in the authority of the Lord and hold up the shield of faith against the fiery darts of the wicked one. There is victory on the other side of faith.

God bless your marriage in Jesus name.

Listening To The Voice of God

Listening To The Voice of God

Reading Time: 2 minutes

Let’s enjoy the story about Funmi, as we look at listening to the Voice of God. Funmi asked her mother for some money but her request wasn’t granted. When her mother went to the kitchen, Funmi quickly took money out of her mother’s purse. 

She felt good knowing that she had money to spend with her friends at school. Her friends always had lots of money to spend at school and she didn’t want to be any different. 

But she kept having a feeling. As much as she was happy, the feelings of happiness were slowly dwindling.

What could it be, she wondered. Soon, she began to feel bad about taking the money.

A voice kept telling her it was wrong of her to have taken the money. It kept telling her she had stolen the money.

But I didn’t steal the money, Funmi said to herself. It’s my mother’s money and she has lots of it.

Funmi was hearing the voice of the Holy Spirit.

When you sin, the Holy Spirit convicts you of it. He speaks to your heart and tells you what you did wrong.

When the Holy Spirit speaks to you and can convict you to the point where you change your ways or confess your wrongdoings, you are still in a safe zone. You still have a conscience. 

Funmi didn’t spend the money at school that day or went with her friends to buy things. She felt bad about taking the money and knew what she had to do – tell her mother the truth, ask for her forgiveness, and never steal again in her life.

May the Holy Spirit give you a healthy conscience. Amen.

Prayer: 
Sweet Spirit of God, thank you for the power to convict me of all sins. Please give me a heart that will listen and obey you in Jesus’ name. Amen.

Action point: 
Has the Holy Spirit ever spoken to you about something wrong you did? How did you respond? Did you do what He said or not? Decide to always listen to and obey His instructions.

Declaration:
My conscience is not seared. I listen and obey the Holy Spirit.

One Important Ingredient Every Marriage Needs

One Important Ingredient Every Marriage Needs

Reading Time: 2 minutes

COUPLES –

“Hullo dear, have you slept?”
“No, I have not, I am listening! I heard the last thing you said.”
The truth is that you have dozed off. 

It has happened to me many times, and I am sure it has happened to you as well. My wife is talking to me on the bed, and I have dozed off. I am trying to listen to her because it is a legitimate need of hers, but the son of man is tired!

Somebody said women speak more words than men. A man speaks an average of ten thousand words in a day, but a woman speaks about twenty-five thousand words! There are exceptions, though.

The man is back from work and he has probably exhausted his 10,000 quota since he derives his self-esteem and fulfillment from work.

By the time he is coming back home, he is done for the day, words have been spoken with friends, colleagues, clients, employers, employees, on the phone and so on. He wants to come back home, eat, listen to news, check a few mails, make love to his wife and sleep!

The wife too has probably exhausted 10,000 words at work, but by the time she is home, she still has 15,000 words bubbling in her! It is even worse if she is a housewife! She has nobody to talk to and so people around her say she nags, making repetitions and all that. 
The fact is that she needs to talk!

So the wife asks her husband 
“How was work today?” 
He answers “Fine!” If he is in a good mood, he adds a few more words like, “oh baby, my day was cool, Thank God!”

She is worried he is not talking, but the guy is in no mood to talk.

The husband asks the wife, “how has your day been? And he regrets afterwards!
That was all she needs to unleash the words that have been brewing in her like a molten magma. The volcanic eruption of words is so massive; the guy wants to walk away. So she starts from when she woke up, and goes on and on, and the man is wondering:
“What did I ask, what is she narrating!”

You see, that is a woman for you and you must not mute her or shut her up! Let her talk! Don’t make a mistake of shouting her down all the time or quieting her! It is a legitimate need of hers.

When a woman has no fear of God and this legitimate need of hers has not been met, she might succumb to the traps of the devil and get that legitimate need met through illegitimate means, which of course will be detrimental to the marriage and the home!

There are people out there who are waiting to capitalize on your insensitivity to your wife and take advantage of that emotional gully created by lack of communication.

You see, a lady becomes emotionally connected to the person she talks to!

To be continued…

CONFESSION FOR THE DAY
My mouth is full of right words. The opening of my mouth is unto wisdom and grace.

PRAYERS FOR THE DAY
Spirit of God, fill my mouth with right words over my spouse, children and family

THOUGHT FOR THE DAY
(Pro 18:4) The words of a man’s mouth are as deep waters, and the wellspring of wisdom as a flowing brook.

ACTION PLAN FOR THE DAY
Fix a time for a hearty discussion

BIBLE READING FOR THE DAY
Matt 14

The Power of Words Over Our Children

The Power of Words Over Our Children

Reading Time: < 1 minute

The bible makes us understand the immense power of words. Words can build up your future or break down your life.

Prov. 13:2 “Be careful what you say and protect your life. A careless talker destroys his life.” (GNB)

This verse cautions us to watch what we say as our words are so powerful to create what we say.

Our words can make or break us. What we say is what we see and become. The words you speak have an impact on your life.

The more you keep complaining about a situation, the more it worsens. Rather, choose to say positive words about it.

You don’t deny that there is a problem, but you choose to look at it through positive lenses.

Use words that show you believe the situation will get better and won’t last forever. You have to keep believing that and let your actions show you believe.

You can choose to say things like
“I am grateful that my parents are giving me an education.

I will meet and make nice, God-fearing friends here.

Things will work out well for me.” and so on.

So, when next you feel like complaining about a situation or someone, remember to choose your words wisely.

God bless and keep your words safe.

Prayer:
Lord God, thank you for your grace that helps me speak wisely. I will continually speak positive, pleasant, and life-giving words as from today. In Jesus name. Amen.

Action plan:
Start to speak positively about your life

Parents: 
My children speak edifying words because they know the power of words.

Declaration:
My children are mindful of what they say. Their lips are guided into all truth.

Benefits of Reading God’s Word

Benefits of Reading God’s Word

Reading Time: 2 minutes

There are great benefits of reading the Word. Now, God speaks to everyone including children. Remember the story of little Samuel in the bible, who later became a strong prophet that ministered to the Israelites and anointed kings?

Our heavenly father wants to speak to us and He does so in different ways. One of such way is through His word- the bible. The bible is the only place where all of God’s words reside.

Reading the bible is one of the ways you can hear from God. When you read about what God did, how He did it, and who He did it for, you get to know more about God.

Maybe you are facing a situation and don’t know how to go about it, read the bible. God will speak to you through a verse or chapter.  He will direct you to a book where someone just like you, faced the same dilemma you are in.

When you read through, you will learn how the person resolved it with God’s help.

For the word of God is quick, and powerful, and sharper than any twoedged sword, piercing even to the dividing asunder of soul and spirit, and of the joints and marrow, and is a discerner of the thoughts and intents of the heart.

Heb 4:12 KJV

The bible says His words are living. They are alive, quick, and sharp. Always speaking. See it as God speaking directly to you. This is part of the benefits of reading God’s word.

God bless you as you read. Amen

Prayer:
Dear Heavenly Father, thank you for your word that is forever living and true. Let your words speak to me daily, in Jesus name. Amen.

Action plan:
When next you think God is speaking to you or have a problem, pray and ask God to use His words to speak to you.

Declaration:
The Lord speaks to me through his word. My ears are opened to God’s word.
