God’s Love Language

“But why do you call Me ‘Lord, Lord,’ and not do the things which I say?” Luke 6:46, NKJV

“But Samuel replied, “What is more pleasing to the LORD: your burnt offerings and sacrifices or your obedience to his voice? Listen! Obedience is better than sacrifice, and submission is better than offering the fat of rams” 1 Samuel 15:22, NLT.

Anyone can kiss you and talk sweetly to you in private, but the true question is, will they show their affection publicly? Anyone can be affectionate to God through their worship to Him, but our love for Him shows when we follow His teachings and do what His Holy Spirit is prompting us to do. Our obedience is God’s love language. It is how He hears ‘I love you.’

Prayer: Father God, I ask that you help me to do what you are telling me to do. Forgive me for every time I disobeyed you. Help me not to ignore your promptings or quench your Holy Spirit. You know I love you. Help my love for you to translate into obedience in every area of my life, not out of religion but because I really love you. In Jesus’ name, Amen.

Avoid the Trap of the Enemy

“Our soul is escaped as a bird out of the snare of the fowlers: the snare is broken, and we are escaped.” Psalms 124:7

A snare is a device used to catch prey. Usually, bait is set secretly in places to lure a subject into the device.

Upon waking up one morning, the Lord spoke to me and said, “Tell My daughters to avoid the trap of the enemy.”

You know in your heart what bait the enemy has set before you to try to lure you in. The bait feels good. It looks good. It sounds good. But it’s a trap, and the Lord is telling you to not fall for it. The Lord is your deliverer, and the key to maintaining your deliverance is keeping an open eye to the plots and schemes of the enemy. Do not be ignorant of his devices. He can’t force you into anything, all he can do is seduce you, and before you know it, you’re caught in something that only God can free you from.

You were meant to soar like an eagle, not be ensnared like prey.

Prayer: Father God, thank you for speaking to me. I hear your voice. Help me God to see the traps of the enemy a mile away. Help me not to be ignorant of what he’s trying to do. You are my deliverer. Help me to maintain my deliverance that I received through Jesus. Open my eyes to see and my ears to hear. I rebuke every seducing spirit, and I choose to keep my heart and mind stayed on you. In Jesus name, Amen.
