WHY Is it hard to leave what you came with from your past experiences and Cleave with your spouse?
Genesis 2:24 (AMP)
24 For this reason a man shall leave his father and his mother, and shall be
joined to his wife; and they shall become one flesh.
Leave, Cleave, and Becoming One Conference.

Something God has put in our Hearts. A Message from R.E.A.L Ministries

[08/26/19]   In God's plan, our only designed leadership role is that of husband/wife, father/mother. All other roles can be replaced.

[08/26/19]   Take a day this week to do something different for your spouse. Think about what would speak to their heart and do it.

[08/13/19]   I would love to challenge all couples to pray together everyday this week until Sunday. Who's in?

[08/10/19]   Marital Accountability: Your best friend, biggest critic, greatest encourager, and the person that challenges you to seek God

[08/04/19]   We expect too much from our spouse and not enough trust in God. Only God can change your marriage and He usually starts with you!

[08/03/19]   If marriage is a direct representation of Jesuś relationship with the church: How is your relationship with God looking right now?

[07/26/19]   In your opinion: What are the necessary ingredients for a marriage to thrive?

[07/24/19]   Marriage: A loving sacrifice, Serving in humility, and selfless love.

[07/23/19]   How do you want your marriage to be remembered?

[07/23/19]   Your marriage impacts more people than you think.

[07/01/19]   Be strong! Let’s fight bravely for the sake of our people and the cities of our God! The Lord will do what he decides is best!”

2 Samuel 10:12 NET

This is joab speaking to his brother Abishai as they are seperating from each other to fight on 2 fronts. As i read this the lord impressed 2 things on my heart:

-This is courage

Courage: we don't hear this word too much anymore. Perhaps because it's something that we seldom truly see anymore. In a me-first narcissistic world, it's hard to understand the concept of giving it up and laying it all down for others.

For me, I have no problem giving to others, but taking courageous steps that require me being totally out of my comfort zone doing things that will expose my fears, my insecurities and test my fortitude and dependence on God, ummm,let me pray about that!

War is all about courage, unfortunately I often forget and I am sure many of us don't realize we are in the midst of one. This goes hand in hand with complacency which unfortunately is a real struggle for me.

What about you? Are you taking steps of courage for God's kingdom?

Lord, I want to be courageous, but not for Joe's kingdom, for your kingdom. I know it starts with me taking the first steps, help me do that because i struggle to do it on my own.

-This is how i need to walk, in faith.

The opposite of fear is faith, not courage.

While joab expressed deep courage, he also expreased a willingness to trust God with the process. Many of us, or should I be real and say that I don't always just move in a blind faith that will do what needs to be done without thinking it out or procrastinating or looking at the odds against me.

This faith says this is what i am called and created to do and i will do it for God and His kingdom.

Could it be that I (we), are so focused on our own kingdoms that we will not lay it all on the line for God's?

Forgive me Lord when my fears and insecurities about who you are and your promises collide with what I know and truly desire to believe about you!

[06/29/19]   Accountability in marriage isn't about restricting each other, but desiring to grow each other in love.

[05/10/19]   If God isnt everything, He isn't anything.
Part time relationships are only as good as the need it fulfills.
Even in marriage

[05/09/19]   When you spend purposed time in relationship, it grows into something worthwhile.
How is ur relationship w/God and your Spouse?

[05/08/19]   Oneness in marriage is immediate and progressive, just like our walk in Christ

[05/08/19]   Marriage was created by God to be a tangible example of a relationship people cannot see, but eagerly desire.
#christnthechurch

[05/06/19]   In this is love: not that we have loved God, but that he loved us and sent his Son to be the atoning sacrifice for our sins. Dear friends, if God so loved us, then we also ought to love one another.
1 John 4:10‭-‬11‭

We can never generate on our own understanding or strength the ability to love God.
In fact, many of us say that we love God, but our loving God is based on us wanting to have something to believe in, while living life our own way.
When we look at the truest definition of love, we understand that it isn't a selfish thing.
To truly love someone is giving up of yourself in terms of wants, desires, and expectations,for the sake of the person you are in relationship with.

The perfect example is found in the scripture above.
Let's for a second not look at it through religious eyes, and look at the context. The story is that of a father, better yet, a very powerful king who is giving up his son to die for the sake of his subjects.
But these subjects are in revolt, they aren't obeying the rules of the kingdom, and there is no one attacking the king that is forcing him to give up the child to an oppossing force. He freely chooses to do so out of a deep love that He has for those He is King over.
Now this sounds far fetched and it should, because the bible tells us that we don't understand that kind of love.
Our love is selfish and is generated from our lusts and infatuations with the idea of love.
And that's the point of the scripture above, that once we come to truly understand that Love for us, the atoning sacrifice, (which means to look at our real condition vs. Gods rules and the payment for those rules to be substantiated), and God's desire to be in relationship with us, then we truly can understand how to love others, and we embrace that Love for us in a way that impacts every area of our life.

The understanding of this love is not a one time event, but a life journey of understanding. The love that God pours on us and fills us with, reaches and uncovers areas in our lives that have been hampered and blinded by the sin condition of our present world.
The atonement and access to this love is immediate, but the relational understanding of this love is a process(too much to unpack).
This relational understanding of love is where our insecurities are dealt with and this is where we have the process of truly understanding love.

Trust isn't immediate, it is developed over time.
Hope isn't immediate it is developed over time.
Faith in someone else isn't immediate, it is developed over time.
Fears and anxieties aren't gone over night, they are dealt with as we rest in an eternal understanding of love.

As we continue to embrace Gods love over time, all of what drives our ability to love gets dealt with in a new understanding, perpetuated by God loving us and showing us his love for us through our life journey.
It is in the process of understanding love and this live unfolding in our lives, that enables us to love our spouse in new ways. Selfless, sacrificial love is not dependent upon the actions of another person, it just gives. In our marriages, if we understand love in this way, then we will love our spouse in a way that is not seeking to be reciprocated, we will love then, because we understand the depth of manner in which God chose to
Love us.
This is how I desire to love Jackie, my children, my family and everyone that God puts in my path
With that said, if you are a believer, if you call yourself a Christian, do you Love others with this understanding of love as your foundation?
Do you love your spouse in that same way?
