So my wife is most definitely going to keep this one alive, but I have to share this God Smack as it came to me.
One day in His presence, I was crying out to God to know and feel (experience) His love a lot more by asking Him to hold me close. I can’t quite remember the exact season I was in and why exactly I was asking Jesus for this, but below was His response to my cry.
“Don’t expect Me to hold you when you don’t hold your wife when she asks or needs to be held.”
God is serious about marriage. Men, we have to learn to be like God the Father in our marriages, families and homes.
Without recognizing the seriousness of this truth, there will be many negative consequences to our lives, namely, hindered prayers; but the opposite is also true in that if we do live out our roles within marriage and family according to His ordinances, then we can expect to receive blessings upon blessings.
Men, we have a responsibility as well as a great opportunity to display who God is. It is one of His highest callings for our lives.
