The Belt of Truth
The two will become one flesh. So they are no longer two, but one flesh. Mark 10:8 NIV “One of the elements of God’s rule is His heart for oneness, also known as unity. Unity can be defined in its simplest of terms as oneness of purpose. It is working together in harmony toward a shared vision and goal.” Tony Evans
Dear Lord, unity in our marriage is about so much more than just agreeing on things. Your Word tells us that our unity actually reflects You to others. Our disunity reveals how far we are from You in our spiritual lives and character. Help us to keep a mindset of unity that is tied to the truth in Your Word, rather than view our decisions and disagreements as competition of thoughts and will.
Jesus described the purpose of unity when He said, “I in them and You in Me, that they may be perfected in unity, so that the world may know that You sent Me, and loved them, even as You have loved Me,” (John 17:23). Unity is our way of sharing and validating Your love not only for Christ and that You sent Him, but also for all of us.
Jesus said we are “perfected in unity.” That being so, we are far from perfected when we quarrel or hold strong to our own desires or decisions, with no regard for our mate. Help me—help us—to be perfected spiritually through the sanctifying process of unity in our marriage. In Christ’s name, amen.
Praise as if it has already happened!
Just recently, God instructed me to praise Him for things I have been praying for. He said, “No longer pray for these petitions as if it has not happened, but begin to praise as if it has already happened!” For a stronger confirmation, I opened my Bible and my eyes fell on Acts 16:25-26 and I knew God was speaking to me once again.
Praise Him in the valleys
The scriptures speak of Paul and Silas who were put into jail for merely performing the great works of God. The act of being placed in jail represents the trials and tribulations we too face today. The key behind the scriptures informs us Paul and Silas did not view their current situation as hopeless, but they praised God for what He was going to do. They praised God with such an awesome power that all the prisoners throughout the jail heard their praise.
Suddenly! The scripture tells us suddenly, there was a great earthquake, the prison began to shake and all the doors opened and each prisoner’s band loosen. The word suddenly is defined as something happening quickly. If you want to see God make big changes in your life, begin to praise Him big and immediately God will begin to work on your behalf!
Start now to praise God in advance. And suddenly, you will see your mountains being leveled and your crooked places made straight, refer to Isaiah 45:2!
Reflection: I challenge you to begin to praise God for prayers you expect to come to pass! And suddenly, you will see God do a big thing in your life.
