Respect dare series – day 40 – Press in

Luke 4:5-8

And the devil took him up and showed him all the kingdoms of the world in a moment of time, and said to him, “To you I will give all this authority and their glory, for it has been delivered to me, and I give it to whom I will. If you, then, will worship me, it will all be yours.”

And Jesus answered him, “It is written, “‘You shall worship the Lord your God, and him only shall you serve.'”

Ultimately, this dare is not about honouring Glenn as much as it is about honouring God through my marriage. As I finish up the blogging, I am reminded that God is my source. In Him, all things are possible. In Him, respect is possible. In Him, perfect love is possible. I cannot succeed in honouring Glenn everyday without the Spirit’s help.  I also cannot honour Glenn above God. It is in God that I trust. He is the One I must turn to at the start of each day, and the One whose wisdom I must seek continually.

My action for today: Put God first. Press into the Word. Seek His wisdom. Listen to the Spirit’s whispering.

This is the last day of the dare blog, but not of the dare. This dare must continue every day of my marriage. I choose to walk in respect and love towards Glenn.

My prayer for today:  Father, be my first love. Be my first desire. Be the One I seek in all things. Keep me hungry for you and thirsty for your ways. From this place, let me love my husband and walk in respect an d honour of him. In Christ’s name, Amen.

In covenant with God and each other
