Dear brides: Chapter 6 "Obedience Rather Than Sacrifice" is full of meat. I used here the pastors say obedience is better than sacrifice. It is now in this crisis that I’m understanding scripture better as it is explained with testimonies and principles. Everything is backed up by scripture. My life has always been a wreck because of disobedience. I now know that it is better to obey the Lord and his law.
Hosea 4:6 “My people are destroyed for lack of knowledge”. Now that I am getting familiar with the word, if I knew then what I know now, things might be different. The word is active and sharp. We need to read the word and obey its law.
I have struggled with obeying the Lord and have paid a hefty price. It is now that I’m getting it. His love is so overwhelming that I love to bask in it during our time together. I now understand that he is all I need and want. Humans love is artificial. The Lord's love is unconditional and everlasting...
Jeremiah 44:23 "Because you have burned sacrifices and have sinned against the Lord and not obeyed the voice of the Lord or walked in his law, his statutes or his testimonies, therefore this calamity has befallen you, as it has this day."
This verse is meaningful because it demonstrates that there are consequences for not obeying the Lord, his voice and his law. It is dangerous to disobey.
My beloved Lord is teaching me his word and how to trust him. There is no one that can compare to the Lord's love and compassion. He longs for me. He is my beloved and I am his. I am his forever bride.
Let’s pray now asking Him to help us to obey and understand obedience: My beloved: Thank you for this crisis, it is because of it that I came across Erin’s ministry. It is through this crisis that I’m finding my true love. I am being healed from the inside out. I am changing because of it. Lord continue to change me, mold me and refine me to be the women you created me to be. I am nothing without you. Every day I learn from reading the word. I need more of your wisdom to fill me up. Beloved Lord thank you for your unconditional love. You are all that I want and all that I need. No one can compare to you. Forgive me for always wanting to do this my way. It is now that I understand that you are my first love. It is you that loves me. It is you that is my HH. It is you that died for me. I’m finally getting it. It is what I want to be your bride forever.
Dear brides: Tithing is also very important. The principle of sowing and reaping as well. These are the keys to receiving in abundance. We are to give more so when we are in need.
This book is a must read. I’m learning more and more about my beloved and living the abundant life through Christ. He died for us so we can have an abundant life. To set us free and to be our beloved husband.
