  • Teamwork

    It’s always easier to get things done in teams.

    There are people who are fiercely independent who hate teamwork, mainly because they end up taking on the majority of the work. But when you’re on a team that’s balanced and healthy, there’s nothing like it. You may have one superstar, but even then...
    Teamwork

    It’s always easier to get things done in teams.

    There are people who are fiercely independent who hate teamwork, mainly because they end up taking on the majority of the work. But when you’re on a team that’s balanced and healthy, there’s nothing like it. You may have one superstar, but even then everyone is working together to help each other give their best gifts.

    Wisdom does not work alone. Wisdom works in a team.

    Proverbs 3 starts out by introducing us to three teammates to wisdom – love, faithfulness, and trust. Why does wisdom need help?

    Love – wisdom without love isn’t helpful. It’s a lot of instruction without the compassion, the relationship, and even the mild sense of interest in another person or persons that make it really sing.

    Wisdom without love is like having a set of instructions to put together furniture, but lacking the pieces of the furniture itself.

    Love gives wisdom a playground in which to play – because honestly if we have no love for God, why would we listen to His wisdom?

    If we don’t have love for other people, why would we make selflessly wise decisions that benefit someone else first and foremost?

    Faithfulness – wisdom is a marathon, not a sprint. Wisdom isn’t going to get us a reality show or make a huge splash in the news. Wisdom is that quiet plugging along, doing the right thing by God’s design, and in small ways, we change the world.

    It’s a project we have to stick to, however. Wisdom can be frustrating if we expect immediate results, so we have to get ready for the long haul.

    Trust – without trust, wisdom has no muscle. If we don’t have at least a growing trust in God, it’s going to be very difficult to invest the energy and risk it requires to follow His teaching.

    Proverbs says, “Trust in the Lord with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding; in all your ways submit to him, and he will make your paths straight.” (Proverbs 3:5-6)

    The idea is that God’s wisdom and understanding will clear out the brush, and run a tractor over the ground and flatten everything. He’ll pave a road, paint lines on it, and mark it out.

    However, it takes trust for us to get on that road and drive.

    What do you need to pair wisdom with today? Love? Faithfulness? Trust? Keep these in mind as you think about the guidance in Proverbs 3.

    Conclusion:
    Battling For Truth in Your Marriage
    Scripture: Romans 12:1-2

    Five years ago, my wife and I realized that we disliked each other. We knew we couldn’t get divorced. We weren’t about to be unfaithful. But we knew we couldn’t stay where we were. So, we looked at each other, and we said, “Do we really wanna...
    Conclusion:
    Battling For Truth in Your Marriage
    Scripture: Romans 12:1-2

    Five years ago, my wife and I realized that we disliked each other. We knew we couldn’t get divorced. We weren’t about to be unfaithful. But we knew we couldn’t stay where we were. So, we looked at each other, and we said, “Do we really wanna live like this for another 30 years?”

    Paul learned the lesson of contentment in extenuating circumstances. As he wrote Philippians, he was in jail, had no money, and was near execution; but he still found joy in Christ. Paul’s joy didn’t come from improved circumstances. It came from living according to the truth rather than buying into the lies of the world, the flesh, and Satan. It’s the same for you and your marriage. Remember, the secret of marriage is two people walking in the Spirit, loving one another. Let’s do something about that, following the pattern Paul laid out in Romans 12:1-2:

    Therefore, I urge you, brothers and sisters, in view of God’s mercy, to offer your bodies as a living sacrifice, holy and pleasing to God – this is your true and proper worship. Do not conform to the pattern of this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind. Then you will be able to test and approve what God’s will is – his good, pleasing and perfect will.

    Out of the eight marriage lies we’ve uncovered, identify the ones that are most pressing on your marriage right now:

    Marriage is irrelevant
    Marriage is the only way to be happy
    Your spouse will complete you
    You two can handle it on your own
    Divorce is an option
    Divorce is better for your children
    Your marriage is hopeless
    Marriage isn’t worth it
    Read the truths that replace the lies that you find directly affecting you:

    Marriage is divine, timeless, and significant
    Singleness is a gift to cherish or a season to enjoy
    Christ is the only one who can complete you
    You need outside help to handle your marriage
    Divorce is only an option in certain extreme cases
    Married parents are far better for your kids
    God offers hope and restoration for your marriage
    A godly marriage will bring Him glory and bless the married immensely
    Now, take both the lies and the truths to the Holy Spirit and ask that He would do the work that only He can do.

    Spirit, show me, right now, the lies that are oppressing my marriage. In the name of Jesus, I rebuke Satan who is the father of those lies. I reject the lies as destructive and wrong. Renew my mind. Replace the lies with life-giving Truth. Reveal to me now specific changes that You want to make in my attitude and my actions. I surrender to You now. Live through me, moment by moment today, according to Your truth. Amen!!!

    Reflection:

    What lies about marriage have I believed?
    What is God specifically saying to me about these lies?
    What will I do about it?
    What does God want me to share with someone who’s struggling in their marriage?

    Start experiencing a Jesus-powered revolution in your life!
