Choose to Trust and Not Settle

1 Corinthians 13:4-7 ” Love is patient and kind; it is not jealous or conceited or proud; love is not ill-mannered or selfish or irritable; love does not keep a record of wrongs;  love is not happy with evil, but is happy with the truth. Love never gives up; and its faith, hope, and patience never fail.”

Dear brides: They say that love is a four-letter word. Love is more than that. Love is patient, Iove is kind. When you experience true love that can only come from the living Lord, you will not settle, Chapter 10 “Don’t Settle for Less“. People throw the word love around like it’s a frisbee. I lived my life settling for less with anyone. You said you loved me and that was enough. But with that word came years of settling for less.

The truth has set me free. I will not settle for anything but the best which comes from my beloved. All I have to do is trust him and receive what He has in store for those that love him.

Matthew 7:7 says ask and it will be given to you. Seek and you will find, knock and the door will be opened to you.

James 1:17 says every good and perfect gift is from above, coming down from the father of the heavenly lights, who does not change like shifting shadows.

My beloved is teaching me that I am his precious bride and he will take care of my needs.

Philippians 4:19 “But my god shall supply your every need according to his riches in glory by Christ Jesus.”

Roman 8:32 “he who did not spare his own Son but delivered Him up for us all, how shall he not with him also freely give us all things? Amen. Thank you, Lord for your provision.”

The Lord is teaching me to go to him in every area and do not be desperate and settle. He longs to be compassionate to me and provide the best for me his bride.

I am understanding that he is the true definition of a Husband. He loves me so much and wants me to live an Abundant Life in Him. I understand that the Lord doesn’t want me to settle for less than. I need to come to him for provision in every area of my life.

I share these principles with family, coworkers and friends as the occasion arises. My daughter in law listens. Others do not but it’s ok. It is in my husbands appointed time. I have planted the seed.

Psalm 37:25 “I have been young and now I am old, yet I have not seen the righteous forsaken or his descendants begging for bread.”

The word of God is sharp. This verse is promising me that I shall not beg for anything. I shall lack no good thing. The Lord is my provider. He is my source.

So let us pray sharing with our Beloved what we have on our hearts and in our minds: My beloved husband. Thank you for changing me for the better. Your word is filling me up with wisdom and I thank you. It is the word that is changing me. It is sharp and it is the living word and truth. Draw me closer to you. You are my beloved and I am your beloved.

Beloved husband forgive me of my sins, forgive me for settling for less my entire life. I accepted less than from people and with that came mistreatment and bad behavior. This time around I choose to trust you and not settle. You died for me so I can live an abundant life. No one can ever compare to you, and your unconditional love. You said you will never leave me nor forsake me. I feel safe with you and I’m learning to receive your love which is not superficial and I thank you.

Dear brides: You are precious and honored in my sight (Isaiah 43:4). The Lord loves you so much. He wants to go be in every area of your life and give you an Abundant Life. Come before him with your needs and trust him. Do not settle out of desperation. He is a limitless Husband. He owns the gold and the silver. He owns the cattle’s on a thousand hills. For nothing is impossible for him. He longs to be compassion.

This book Poverty Mentality is a must-read. It provides hope. It provides principles and gives you hope. Your Heavenly Husband wants to give you an abundant life. We need to trust him. Obey his word and love him back. His ways are best and settling is not an option.
