Married From The Heart

Jonathan Cahnby Jonathan Cahn

Imagine a marriage where the husband and wife each have a list of what the other must do, and a script for what the other must say. So when they speak to each other, it’s all from a script. What would you think of such a marriage? It would all be outward, external… empty…. fake. But that’s exactly how many believers live out their relationships with God. They look primarily at what they have to do for Him… and what He should do for them. They say the right words, sing the right songs, but because they have to – not because it’s really coming from their hearts. But a marriage that’s alive and blessed is the one where each blesses the other from his or her heart. So a relationship with God that’s alive and blessed is one that flows from the heart. It’s about seeking to know God’s heart, and to have God’s heart. And doing the right thing, not only because you have to; but because you want to, it’s your heart. Live with God from the heart, and your marriage to Him will be blessed and full of life.

John The Baptist As A Businessman

Jonathan Cahnby Jonathan Cahn

Yochanan the Immerser, also known as John the Baptist, never got married. Why? It’s probable that if John had married, he would have missed his calling and his life would have been a disaster. We don’t know. But Messiah called him the greatest among men. If he had gone after earthly success, comfort, marriage, or business, he probably wouldn’t have been that great at it and he would have missed his true greatness. Yet, by foregoing these things, he ended up the greatest man ever born before Messiah.

Thus, you fulfill God’s will for your life and don’t worry about what others have. For even if you had a billion dollars, your life would be a failure if you didn’t follow God’s calling. Turn away from whatever is not God’s best for you, whether it’s more money, comfort, people’s affection, fame, marriage, or whatever it is if it’s not God’s will. Just go all out for God. Seek to fulfill the best that God has for your life and your calling. Because John probably wouldn’t have made a good husband, but he made one great Baptist.

Today’s Mission – Choose God’s highest path for your walking today and avoid anything that keeps you from fulfilling God’s purpose.
