Here’s An Invitation To True Love

Here’s An Invitation To True Love

Reading Time: 4 minutes

Here’s an Invitation To True Love. Sandy is a church girl. She goes to church regularly, belongs to the choir, and serves God passionately, but she is also caught up with some habitual sins, which she has not been able to confront for a long time.
 
George is the fellowship head of his campus fellowship but has sexual relationships with some of the flock he is supposed to keep. He knows his lifestyle doesn’t please God, but he would find himself from time to time doing what he preaches against.
 
Mr. & Mrs. Johnson want to serve God and they are doing all they can. It is just that they are both compromisers, they are seeing someone else. They know it is wrong, but they continued, thinking that somehow, things will just work out. They are practicing what is known as an ”open relationship” where both know they are cheating on each other!
 
What is common with these people?
 
They are all involved with what is not going to work. They are all hoping God’s mercy will work for them, and really it will work for a while.

Let’s take a look at the scriptures and see some principles. Here’s An Invitation To True Love, The Invitation to buy:
 
Ho, every one that thirsteth, come ye to the waters, and he that hath no money; come ye, buy, and eat; yea, come, buy wine and milk without money and without price. (Isaiah 55:1 KJV)
 
Here we see God inviting you to come and buy what you will eat and which will do you good. But these are not the kind of stuff you buy with money. These are the kinds of stuff you buy with time and with your heart.
 
The very first principle that will ensure success in your relationship, marriage, and life is to have a thirst for the things of God and to go to the waters.
 
The waters talk about the word of God. You buy revelation for your situation, not with your money but with a sincere and dedicated heart unto God. 

You see, your thirst for a good life, a good marriage, a good home, and the good things in life is legitimate. Your thirst to make it, become significant in life, and be wealthy is a legitimate feeling. The hunger to quit living at the lowest rung of the ladder and move up is genuine, but you must take a step further to buy, the right way!
 
You buy with a good heart unto God and with spending time in God’s word regularly. You see, this is a lasting and tested principle that will quench that thirst of yours.
 
That thirst cannot be quenched with sex with the one you are not married to. You see, the hunger you feel in your soul, the emptiness of ideas, the feelings of loneliness that envelopes you can only be pacified and satisfied by honoring God’s invitation.
 
The devil has its own invitation cards as well.
 
It is an invitation to compromise. It is an invitation to spiritual apathy and mediocrity. It is an invitation to the road that leads to hell. The invitation card looks so alluring and beautiful, but you see, the consequence of honoring an invitation is not in the invitation card but in the person who is inviting you!
 
The guy who is insisting you should prove your love with sex is offering an invitation. The lady who told you to your face that you are old fashioned by staying away from sex is also offering an invitation.
 
Do you remember the invitation of the strange woman in Proverbs 7?
 
So now I’ve come to find you, hoping to catch sight of your face––and here you are! I’ve spread fresh, clean sheets on my bed, colorful imported linens. My bed is aromatic with spices and exotic fragrances. Come, let’s make love all night, spend the night in ecstatic lovemaking! My husband’s not home; he’s away on business, and he won’t be back for a month (Proverbs 7:15-20 Message)
 
But you see, the invitation is not always the end of the story. There is always a severe consequence when you honour the wrong invitation.
 
See what follows:

Soon she has him eating out of her hand, bewitched by her honeyed speech. Before you know it, he’s trotting behind her, like a calf led to the butcher shop, Like a stag lured into ambush and then shot with an arrow, Like a bird flying into a net not knowing that its flying life is over (Proverbs 7:21-23 Message)
 
This is a clear invitation to adultery! Married couples, I challenge you today! Decide to refuse every wrong invitation. It is your choice! That guy or lady that seems better than your spouse is a trap! Do not get tangled in bed with the one you are not married to! The agony that follows such is intense!

God’s invitation will lead you to the good life you have always wanted.
 
Start the day with God’s word. Stay away from sin. Decide to live for God by refusing every compromise. Don’t play along thinking something will just happen, nothing just happens, everything is a consequence of an action, an effect after a cause!
 
I will conclude this morning by showing you God’s invitation through the mouth of Jesus Christ. No other invitation will beat this one!
 
Come unto me, all ye that labour and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest. Take my yoke upon you, and learn of me; for I am meek and lowly in heart: and ye shall find rest unto your souls. For my yoke is easy, and my burden is light (Matthew 11:28-30 KJV)
 
Now you won’t really understand the weight of the above invitation until you read it in another translation, and I conclude with that this morning!
 
“Are you tired? Worn out? Burned out on religion? Come to me. Get away with me and you’ll recover your life. I’ll show you how to take a real rest. Walk with me and work with me––watch how I do it. Learn the unforced rhythms of grace. I won’t lay anything heavy or ill–fitting on you. Keep company with me and you’ll learn to live freely and lightly (Matthew 11:28-30 Message)
 
Oh Jesus! I could preach a whole day from that. I challenge you to refuse and discard every other invitation and accept the invitation from the lover of your soul! Embracing the lover of your soul will lead you into the arms of the love of your life! Here’s An Invitation To True Love

What if you already get entangled as a single or married? Then get disentangled! It’s an issue of your decision, your God, and what God wants for your life! May God help you!
 
CONFESSION FOR THE DAY
I refuse to honour every wrong invitation
 
PRAYER FOR THE DAY
Lord, help me to thirst and hunger after you
 
THOUGHT FOR THE DAY
For my yoke is easy, and my burden is light.” (Matthew 11:30 ESV)

Tear every wrong invitation card

How Do I Know If Someone Really Loves Me? –Part 2

How Do I Know If Someone Really Loves Me? –Part 2

Reading Time: 2 minutes

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?

Did you miss out on yesterday’s devotional, we’ve got you covered. Kindly go HERE

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!

CONFESSION FOR THE DAY
God loves me. I will comprehend what true love is and operate in 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 truely loves

BIBLE READING FOR THE DAY
Ezekiel 3-4

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…

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.
