God receives your prayers, now show your love.

April 22, 2019

“So you see, faith by itself isn’t enough. Unless it produces good deeds, it is dead and useless” James 2:17, NLT.

I remember when I had spent a good portion of the morning praying in the Spirit for my husband and thanking God for him. Then I heard the Lord say, “I receive your prayers, now show your love to him.” So I prepared a special lunch: broiled salmon, jasmine rice and a salad. I took a shower and put on something elegant. Lit a candle and put on soft music. Then I waited for him to come home during his lunch break. He walked through the door and sat down. I got off the computer and sat down next to him, asking him how his day was going and listened to him without interrupting. He was happy to eat a delicious meal and happy to see me. As he left to go back to work, he had a smile on his face.

After sixteen years of marriage, God still challenges me to not only pray for him and encourage him, but also show him that I love him by doing the things that matter to him, whether he does anything for me or not.

God has taught me that if faith without works is dead, a marriage without selfless acts of love is dead also. God receives your prayers myself sister, now show your love.

Prayer: Father God, thank you for this right now word. I receive it deep in my heart. I understand you want to bless my marriage in unimaginable ways, but you need my willingness and obedience. I understand you need me operating in the spirit and not in the flesh. I hear you Lord. I need your grace to be the wife you’ve called me to be. I need your wisdom and your strength and I receive it now by faith. In Jesus name, Amen.
