  • Support Your Husband

    Posted on August 16, 2012 by Boyd Bailey

    "The LORD God said, "It is not good for the man to be alone. I will make a helper suitable for him." Genesis 2:18

     

    Husbands have a God given support system in their sweet spouse. Heaven has provided just the right wife for a husband to receive help.  This divine strategy is a blessing, because left to himself, a husband is incomplete—he maintains at best. The Lord's plan gives a wife the opportunity to make her man feel confident and in control. Most of all her love for Jesus is the fuel that fuels her faith in her husband. She is his best helper.

    What if your husband is ungrateful and hard to please? Your model of unselfish support is a testimony to your trust in God. If your husband takes you for granted, pray the Holy Sprit will convict him of his need for appreciation. A supportive attitude attracts your husband to your heart. Trust the Lord will grow him in grace and gratitude. A woman of prayer wisely waits on God to work, without rushing ahead with sincere solutions.

    "I pray also that the eyes of your heart may be enlightened..." Ephesians 1:18a 

    Support him when he is mad and your patient smile will make him glad. Support him when he is sick and your compassionate heart will bring quicker healing. Support him when he is successful and your unselfish celebration will cause mutual joy. Support him in his work and your loyalty to his labor will grow his feelings of significance. Above all, support him as your spiritual leader, as your validation gives him courage to continue.

    As a husband you may seem self-sufficient, but you are really not a lone ranger. You are one flesh with your bride and you need her help. So, acknowledge your dependence on God and your need for your wife's support. Invite her into your hopes and fears. Be vulnerable with your emotions that are hard to express and receive her comfort and counsel. It's bad to be alone at home with your wife, but it is very, very good to have her selfless support.

    "He who finds a wife finds what is good and receives favor from the LORD." Proverbs 18:22

    Prayer: Heavenly Father, thanks for loving me so that I can love and support my husband.

  • Protect Your Wife

    Posted on August 15, 2012 by Boyd Bailey

    “For the husband is the head of the wife as Christ is the head of the church, his body, of which he is the Savior.” Ephesians 5:23

     

    A wife is vulnerable to emotional exploitation. She needs her husband’s loving care and protection. Insensitive friends and family can take advantage of her sweet and sensitive spirit. So, a husband who takes seriously his role of protector is ever vigilant to shield his bride from bad behavior. What was once a blossoming flower of faith can wither under the assault of rejection and disrespect. Thus, you guard her heart with your strong stand.

    Every woman of faith prays for a godly knight in shining armor who will bear the sword of the Spirit on her behalf. She longs for a godly man who by faith walks in the fullness of the Spirit: courageous and confident in Christ. Are you that husband? Are you active in safeguarding your wife’s mind, will and emotions? Is her spirit in safekeeping with you? Wife, your husband is God’s buffer against bad people. So rest, his role is to defend you.

    “May integrity and uprightness protect me, because my hope, LORD, is in you.” Psalm 25:11

    Men, don’t shrink back from stepping up for your woman. Just like Jesus is the head of the church and gave Himself up for His bride, so you do the same for yours. Yes, it is daunting at times and we are sometimes defeated, but we do not despair for the Lord is our ultimate defender. Our battle is with His weapons of prayer, faith and hope. He saved you to save her from being crushed by criticism and deceived by lies. You are her guard.

    Ultimately, it is your heavenly Father who spreads His protective coat of character over His children. Your integrity gives you the moral authority to speak the truth in love. Courage follows commitment. Like a calf, caught in a hailstorm, moves for cover, so you get under Christ’s calming cleft. All hell can break loose around you, but you stay put in prayer at the feet of Jesus. He will protect you from the evil elements that swirl about. Therefore, trust in God’s protection first and protect your wife second. She needs you!
    “For he guards the course of the just and protects the way of his faithful ones.” Proverbs 2:8 

    Prayer: Heavenly Father, thanks for being my protector, so I am able to protect my wife.

  • Tempered Talk

    Posted on August 14, 2012 by Boyd Bailey

    “When words are many, sin is not absent, but he who holds his tongue is wise” (Proverbs 10:19).

     

    Tempered talk is evidence of wise conversation. When our words are many we run the risk of soliciting sin. Increased words increase the probability of improper speech. For example, respectful conversation does not repeat the same words and phrases in a confined period of time. This impatient cadence frustrates.

    Perhaps a look of misunderstanding requires questioning for clarification or definitions for comprehension. Proud conversationalists can hijack a listener’s understanding with a hoard of words with no meaning. If your goal is to communicate, then take the time to listen to the needs of your audience. People who feel cared for and understood have a keener sense of hearing and understanding.
    “Even a fool is thought wise if he keeps silent, and discerning if he holds his tongue” (Proverbs 17:28).

    Wise people weigh their words before they speak. They allow their minds to catch up with their hearts. Furthermore, in the face of wrong behavior, emotions sometimes need to express themselves. Let the other person know if you feel mistreated or misinformed. Concealed anger leads to living a lie (see Proverbs 10:18), but tempered talk is truthful and to the point.

    Lastly, you reserve your words out of respect for the other person. If you do all the talking, you are the center of attention.  Conversation becomes condescending when the other individual does not feel important enough to speak up. So, honor others by speaking less, listening more intently to how you can love them. Wisdom can be found in the words of each person you meet. Therefore, intentionally talk less and be wise.

    “My dear brothers, take note of this: Everyone should be quick to listen, slow to speak and slow to become angry” (James 1:19).

    Prayer: Dear Jesus, whom do I need to listen to more while speaking less?

  • Church Social Justice

    Posted on August 13, 2012 by Boyd Bailey

    "Therefore, as we have opportunity, let us do good to all people, especially to those who belong to the family of believers." 1 Timothy 6:10

     

    The Church of Jesus Christ has the opportunity and obligation to serve the injustices of society in Jesus’ name. Protecting the life of the unborn and elderly, providing for widows and orphans, caring for the sick and dying, and visiting those in jail or prison allows the church to engage in the culture. Compassion is not just a feeling, but a meaningful effort to get involved. A secular society needs a Savior to save its soul of injustice.

    Who is the church? It is both an institution and the individual believers who make up the Body of Christ. We are responsible corporately and personally to serve society with good deeds and with the good news of salvation in Jesus. Words without works is dead faith, and works without words is ashamed faith. Thus, the Body of Christ is light and life for a dark and dying society.
    "Anyone who does not provide for their relatives, and especially for their own household, has denied the faith and is worse than an unbeliever." 1 Timothy 5:8 

    So, where does the family of faith first show it cares? You start by providing for your family: your household and your relatives. It may be transportation to get them to work, a prayer over the phone, a rent payment, groceries, or sponsoring their attendance at an intensive marriage retreat. Families who follow Jesus are a compelling force for good in the culture.

    Secondly, the Body of Christ is to care for its own. There is a spiritual kinship that benefits those who serve the King of Kings. Who do you know in your church whose tears silently cry out for care? Who is too embarrassed to ask for financial help, but your anonymous generosity would be a tourniquet to their bleeding budget? The wounds of social injustice are a wake up call for aggressive acts of kindness.

    "Carry each other’s burdens, and in this way you will fulfill the law of Christ." Galatians 6:2

    Lastly, the Church is called to engage the culture as a whole in social justice. Serving the poor and needy, defending the rights of the unborn, and upholding biblical marriage are right strategies for the righteous. The good news of Jesus goes to the heart for salvation, the mind for renewal, and the body for purification. Social justice for the Church is modeling Christ's actions of preaching, teaching, giving, feeding and clothing. We love children and honor the elderly. As the Church grows in its influence the need for government lessens. Where the Lord reigns above—justice rains down on society.

    "Religion that God our Father accepts as pure and faultless is this: to look after orphans and widows in their distress and to keep oneself from being polluted by the world." James 1:27

    Related ReadingsDeuteronomy 14:29; Isaiah 1:17; Titus 2:14; Ephesians 2:19

    Prayer: Heavenly Father, break my heart for what breaks Yours. Use me to initiate Your social justice.

  • Love and Truth

    Posted on August 12, 2012 by Boyd Bailey

    for your love is ever before me, and I walk continually in your truth. Psalm 26:3

     

    Walk in truth and be lead by love. These are twins of wise living. Love is our leader and truth our motivator. Love is our strategy and truth our tactic. Love is our goal and truth  our inspiration. Love is our encouragement and truth our obedience. We need both to become better followers of Jesus. We are not under the bondage of the law, but we are under the sweet constraints of grace. Love, without truth, can be deceived with every new form of teaching. It can be easily swayed by emotion instead of remaining stable and confident in Christ. Truth without love becomes judgmental and harsh. It goes through the right motions while resentment builds unabated. Love and truth work together so we are able to live a compelling Christian life. They bring us into balance. 

    This is why we look forward to the love of God as a guide for our faith. Faith trusts God to accomplish His own decrees. This is why we do not have to steal, for we know God will provide for His children. This is why we do not have to get back at others in revenge, because God can and will handle them in His timing and in His way. This is what it means to be led by the love of God. You can trust God’s love to dispense justice when appropriate, and extend grace and forgiveness as needed. He sees the bigger picture and knows what is necessary to draw others closer to Christ. This is why we look ahead to the love of God. When we look to love as the leader, we trust. We follow love by faith.

    Secondly, we walk grounded in truth. Truth governs our faith. Truth keeps us rooted in reality. It is obedience to God’s truth that proves our love for Him. Truth takes us back to the question, “What does the Almighty think I should be and do?” We walk in truth because it preserves us from sinful behavior. It is the assurance of God’s promises that causes us to imitate them as well as believe. Like a pilot who depends on instruments, radar, radio and GPS (Global Positioning System) to guide him on the best path to the right destination, so we walk in truth expecting the Lord’s best outcome. Some talk of truth, but it is much better to walk in truth. Some vow to do better in the future, but their resolutions come to nothing. Avoid those who say one thing and do another.

    A companion of fools suffers harm (Proverbs 13:20). Stay away from those who stray from the truth. It may be a pastor, teacher, friend, or business client who handles the truth loosely. They lie even when the truth will do. These are vain people. Do not sit with them and be drawn in by their charisma. They are deceptive. However, those who walk in the truth will at times tell you things you do not want to hear. They are your internist on eternal matters. So listen when they prescribe doses of truth. The medicine may be bitter, but if applied, it will heal your heart. Therefore, walk in truth, and walk with those who walk in truth. Love leads and truth follows. Go with God. Go to Him often and receive gladly his infinite love and insightful truth. He is both.

  • Gods Sense of Humor

    Posted on August 11, 2012 by Boyd Bailey

    “Sarah said, “God has brought me laughter, and everyone who hears about this will laugh with me.” Genesis 21:6

     

    God makes you laugh because of the incredible way He provides and the way He answers prayer. You laugh out loud when you have a child, especially when the little one is unexpected. You laugh when you land a job or a deal that was totally unexpected. You laugh when the Lord loves you beyond your wildest dreams. Because of His extraordinary provision, your joy and thanksgiving turn into laughter. It is a respectful and grateful laughter to the Lord. Smiles are the refreshing fruit of laughter. He makes you laugh because He has a sense of humor. Heaven is not humorless; it’s full of joy and laughing out loud. The Lord laughs with you and at you. He gives you laughter to remind you of His sense of humor. He gives you laughter to unleash joy and enable you to relax in Him. 

    God is in control and you have His permission to laugh. It is tragic when there is failure to receive heaven’s humor.  It is a false belief that a smile is not spiritual; piety produces joy. God has a sense of humor. To walk with the Lord means to laugh with the Lord. Think about the last time Jesus surprised you by joy. Reminisce on those prayers that seemed almost irresponsible, yet He answered them in the most unlikely way; He smiled and said yes. Did you take the time to laugh out loud with the Lord? Awe and laughter are not mutually exclusive; they go together.

    Celebrate God’s sense of humor with others. Do not hold back your laughter with those you love and respect. Laughter is relational lubricant. It is an elixir for evangelism and discipleship. It is a marinade for mentoring. No one wants to be around laugh-less company. Don’t wait for special occasions like weddings and birthdays to laugh. Laugh in between those times. Laugh daily with others. Laugh out loud. It may be at a child’s performance at school or a church play. Laugh with them as they risk being vulnerable and expressive. Laugh when things don’t go just as planned at work and home. Laughter links people to the Lord and to each other. Laughter keeps you from taking life and yourself too seriously.

    There are certainly issues that are no laughing matters. Be sensitive not to laugh at someone’s pain, but do not discount your ability to make others laugh. Your laughter gives others permission to laugh. Laugh at yourself, laugh at your quirks, laugh at your accent, laugh at your life. Laughter is contagious. Laughter with one another is love. You love  someone when you laugh together. Christ gives laughter as solace for your soul. You miss experiencing an important part of Christ’s character when you choose not to laugh. Let go and laugh. Let go of anger and laugh. Let go of hurt and disappointment, false humility and pride, and laugh, for He has done great things.

    The Bible says, “Our mouths were filled with laughter, our tongues with songs of joy. Then it was said among the nations, ‘The LORD has done great things for them’” (Psalm 126:2).

  • Grace Made Man

    Posted on August 10, 2012 by Boyd Bailey

    “But by the grace of God I am what I am, and his grace to me was not without effect. No, I worked harder than all of them—yet not I, but the grace of God that was with me.” 1 Corinthians 15:10

     

    A self-made man is the antithesis of a grace made man. A self-made man becomes desperate for God on occasion, as when a crisis occurs— but a grace made man is continually desperate for God, since he sees himself as a needy man. A self-made man struggles to give God the glory for his accomplishments, but the grace made man never forgets to give Christ the credit for his success. Grace brings out the best in humble hearts. 

    Furthermore, a grace made man does not work any less, but more. Gratitude governs grace-based behavior into focused diligence. A man or woman motivated by the grace of God works for an audience of One. Their godly ambition has an eternal allegiance that no earthly boss can inspire. So, we work hard because God’s grace is at work within us. Is your work and life a divine portrait of grace? If so, you are attractive, beautiful to behold.

    “For by the grace given me I say to every one of you: Do not think of yourself more highly than you ought, but rather think of yourself with sober judgment, in accordance with the faith God has distributed to each of you.” Romans 12:3

    We are nothing unless the Lord makes us by His grace. We may make money, but unless we lean into the Lord’s grace, it is just another temporal transaction. We know we are leaning into the Lord’s grace when we are gracious with our words and humble in our attitude. People are not seen as a means to make money, but as individuals with hopes, dreams and fears. A grace made person engages people with kindness, not passive pride.

    Therefore, work hard with a heavenly agenda.  Acknowledge that the larger the Lord’s blessing on your life the greater the need for more grace. Christ increases our capacity for grace, as we credit Him for His favor. Amazing grace starts at salvation and becomes a growing marvel as you apply humble faith and thanksgiving. God’s grace makes the man; man does not make the man. Your Creator created you and your success. “T’was Grace that brought us safe thus far…and Grace will lead us home.” (Amazing Grace, the hymn)

    “You may say to yourself, “My power and the strength of my hands have produced this wealth for me.” But remember the Lord your God, for it is He who gives you the ability to produce wealth.” Deuteronomy 8:17-18a

    Prayer: Heavenly Father, teach me to rely more and more on Your generous grace.

  • Appointments With God

    Posted on August 9, 2012 by Boyd Bailey

    “Sow righteousness for yourselves, reap the fruit of unfailing love, and break up your unplowed ground; for it is time to seek the LORD, until he comes and showers his righteousness on you.” Hosea 10:12

     

    Appointments with God honor God. When He is scheduled daily it shows He is your priority. Some people clamor to get on a celebrities’ calendar, yet Christ is accessible 24/7. Indeed, Jesus, the iconic person of all time is available to engage any interested individual at anytime. Almighty God has no handlers or gatekeepers—He is easily reachable by faith. So, why are we reluctant to schedule time with Eternity? Are we really too busy to pray? 

    In life we have appointments for activities that really matter to us: haircuts, exercise, doctors, dentists, mechanics, job interviews, breakfasts, lunches, dinners and dates. Why not schedule time with our Savior, so we feel accountable to meet with Him? We would certainly not miss an appointment with Jesus any more than we would stand up our hair stylist. Previously calendared time makes it easier to say, “I have another commitment.”

    “This is what the LORD says to Israel: “Seek me and live.” Amos 5:4

    We set appointments with the Lord because He is the ultimate expert for living. He is your relational therapist, He is the minister of your soul, He is the psychiatrist of your emotions and the physician of your body. God is your eternal expert for how to do life meaningfully and abundantly. So, you go to God to learn how to go forward in amazing faith-filled living. Your appointments with the Almighty teach you how to live life well.

    What is keeping you from calendaring Christ? Time? He has given you enough time to do His will. Fatigue? Rest is the result of resting in the arms of your heavenly Father. Faith? When you show up, He shows up and helps your unbelief. Feelings? Eventually your emotions will catch up with your obedience to be with Jesus God appointments work.

    Perhaps you start with calendaring five minutes a day with Christ, with a goal to increase it to an hour a day. Just as you turn off your phone and give full focus to those with whom you meet, do the same for your Savior. Give Him your undivided attention with no multitasking or distractions. Create a calm place to be quiet before your Lord. Begin the day by feeding your soul and then your fullness of faith will feed other starving souls.

    “They were also to stand every morning to thank and praise the LORD. They were to do the same in the evening.” 1 Chronicles 23:30

    Prayer: Heavenly Father, my heart’s desire is to meet you at a daily appointed time.

  • Pedestal of Pride

    Posted on August 8, 2012 by Boyd Bailey

    “So, if you think you are standing firm, be careful that you don’t fall!” 1 Corinthians 10:12

     

    A pedestal of pride looks down on other inferior souls. It is a position of self-worship that threatens integrity and influence. Like a drug, pride is addictive and impairs good judgment. If it could be packaged as a pill in a prescription bottle the label would read, “Warning, taken too often in large doses may lead to a great fall, even death.”

    If we build a monument in our minds to ourselves, we are on a pedestal of pride. This self-imposed idolatry acts like a King or Queen that expects blind loyalty and unquestionable submission to everyone under his or her authority. If we don’t wake up from this narcissistic dream it will turn into a hellish nightmare. Relationships will be wrecked, reputations will be ruined and respect will be absent from those who mean the most.

    “He lifted me out of the slimy pit, out of the mud and mire; He set my feet on a rock and gave me a firm place to stand.” Psalm 40:12

    However, a prayerful posture dethrones pride and replaces it with humility. By faith, Jesus is able to storm the gates of hell, take captive the enemy and release us from the prison of pride. The Lord lifts us out of the slimy pit of pride and sets us on His solid rock of righteousness. It is firm, because our feet are planted solid on the ground of grace. Thus, we are careful to see ourselves as God sees us: needy and dependent on His Spirit.

    You will stand firm by faith in Christ and trust that He is in control. Let go and let God make you whole. Let go and the Lord will take you further faster. Let go and Christ will make you content. Let go and the Spirit will show you the way. Let go and Jesus will give you joy. Let go of pride, replace it with humility, and you will stand firm by faith.
    Pride has no place in the personality of a child of God. You are the result of grace alone.

    “Not that we lord it over your faith, but we work with you for your joy, because it is by faith you stand firm.” 2 Corinthians 1:24

    Prayer: Heavenly Father, remove any pedestals of pride in my life and replace them with Your humble heart.

  • Processing Grief

    Posted on August 7, 2012 by Boyd Bailey

    “But You, God, see the trouble of the afflicted; You consider their grief and take it in hand. The victims commit themselves to You; You are the helper of the fatherless.” Psalm 10:14

     

    Grief is a God given emotion that processes sorrow related to a loss. It can be the loss of a loved one to death or the death of a vision. Loss associated with finances, health, a pet, a job, divorce or relocation contributes to extended sorrow. Moreover, nations grieve corporately over war, mass murder by a maniac, and the death of a revered national leader. Grief calls for a pause to pray and reflect on what’s important. Sorrow seeks out a Savior. 

    Heaven’s desire is to fill the hole in our hearts with hope. Indeed, sorrow slows us down to meditate on what really matters: Jesus, family, friends, spiritual, physical and emotional health, church, fellowship, evangelism, discipleship and God’s game plan for our lives. Grief gets us to God, so that we take Him seriously. The spiritually serious are eventually able to smile. Our mourning turns into trust in Christ and He is able to restore our joy and hope.

    “Have I not wept for those in trouble? Has not my soul grieved for the poor?” Job 30:25

    In addition there is an indirect grief associated with those who have suffered great loss. Perhaps our heart aches over the atrocities suffered by extreme poverty—masses unprotected from disease, who are ravished by malnutrition. Those who seek to live off a dollar a day clearly comprehend no promise of tomorrow. It is good for God’s people to get worked up over those who need work. We grieve, so out of our comfort in Christ we comfort and serve those stuck in sorrow.

    Ultimately, you have the privilege to point hurting hearts to their Savior, Jesus. An aching soul needs Almighty God to bind up their broken spirit and heal their bleeding hearts. You are heaven’s vessel of hope, grace and love. Use the loss of another to lovingly lead them to their Lord. Their loss is God’s gain. What anguish empties, faith fills. You serve emotional and physical needs, so that they will embrace their spiritual needs. Grief needs God.

    “My eyes are dim with grief. I call to You, Lord, every day; I spread out my hands to You.” Psalm 88:9

    Prayer: Heavenly Father, I need You to fill my heart with hope, as it grieves a great loss.
