Today’s Question(s) of the Day for 8/19/2019
Have you seen your spouse become unreachable in an area where you have confronted them about to the point where you ask God to deal with them and He has? (e.g. I heard that Karen Evans from Marriage Today said that she would sic the Lord on Jimmy Evans when he was not doing right.)
What happened? How did God amaze you with His work?
Yes, multiple times. God has always been faithful to convict, but the fruit hasn’t always been reaped on my timeline. And for me, it has rarely been an easy process. There’s always been a wrestle with when my overt activity (addressing and confronting the issue) needs to cease, and my covert activity is the sole plan (praying and waiting on the Lord.)
I have found the greatest and awe-inspiring thing that happens, is when I pray and intercede, my spiritual eyes are opened and I can recognize God at work. Even in the times others see “bad”, I can see God’s goodness, I see the answering of prayers. I see God’s glory at work when brokenness begins, and that on the otherside of one’s breaking, is goodness and them looking a little more like Jesus.
Not to the extent that you suggest. But, before DW’s awakening, I did spend years praying for God to move and to work. And after year of calling on God, she did! I had told the Lord, even if nothing changed, by His strength I would remain faithful to Him and to her.
