The Daily Breath of God

The man said, "This is now bone of my bone and flesh of my flesh; she shall be called woman, for she was taken out of man." For this reason a man will leave his father and mother and be united to his wife, and they will become one flesh. The man and his wife were both naked, and they felt no shame. Genesis 2:23-25 NIV
This is how life started in a relationship for the man and the woman, The man said, “This is now bone of my bone and flesh of my flesh;” and then sin came. In sin things became shameful, embarrassing, confussing and sexual immorality became normal. Man began to be angry, irritated and lustful instead of loving and in so doing the relationship with his wife became difficult. The woman had emotions for something different and things became exhausting. Sin always desires to overrule God’s plan even in marriage. But Grace can renew all of this and can give a man or a woman a new place to start. For this reason a man will leave his father and mother and be united to his wife. Grace (the nature of God’s love) gives the freedom to love and encourage. Being overwhelmed by God’s grace is truly the most renewing way to live through this life. It recreates our nature for holiness, it can heal the wounds of the past; it can give a new beginning every day for marriage and family. Today please allow yourself to enjoy the life of being overwhelmed by his grace. The victory you are looking for is found in his grace, that is Jesus Christ. It is a love that expresses itself without condemnation or shame and therefore refreshes the one you are with. In grace, words of kindness, praise and encouragement come naturally. You will find that grace is everything you have hoped for and everything you could desire. Enjoy!
