Expression of God’s Love.
Romans 5:8 But God commendeth his love toward us, in that, while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us.
There are languages that express love. They solidify relationships, bond two different people coming together to live as one. These love languages aren’t limited to use in building your relationship with your spouse but can also be expressed to God for a sweet relationship with Him.
Most of us are familiar with the five love languages as written by Gary Chapman. And I’ll base my writing on his submission. And if you haven’t read the book I’ll encourage you to go get a copy as it will be of help to your relationship either married, single or about to wed.
God encourages, He doesn’t use demeaning words on His own. He calls the things that aren’t in a man as though they were. When Gideon was nothing God called Him a mighty man of valour (Judges 6:12-14). He also encouraged him to go in his present state of might.
When a man doesn’t find the innate value lying fallow in himself, God brings it to live through His words of affirmation. Moses never knew what He is capable of until he encountered God (Exo. 3).
God also shows appreciation to His lover. Our acts of service will never be unrewarded (Heb. 11:6). Unlike what most of us have been taught about rewards from God. Our reward isn’t only in Heaven but starts from this earth. My mum used to sing a song that from this earth we will experience the sweetness of Heaven. I never understood until my relationship with God gave me a first hand experience of how doesn’t fail in paying back His own as an expression of thank you (John 15:16).
For a balanced relationship, there should be reciprocation. God loves to receive words of affirmation from men. He wants you to talk about what He has done. When a man appreciates Him for the expression of His love He does even more than the man can imagine.
David is a very good model of thanksgiving to God. You can’t live your life of Thanksgiving like David and won’t experience the miraculous as a norm. Don’t spite God, don’t join those who make a scorn of Him and His people.
Muse: If you appreciate uplifting words being a man, God appreciates it too. Remember, you are made in His image.
Let us pray: Father, thank You for all You do.
