Devotions for a Sacred Marriage 2012

God’s Son, God’s Daughter

Isaiah 49:15-16

Can a mother forget the baby at her breast
And have no compassion on the child she has borne
Though she may forget,
I will not forget you!
See I have engraved you on the palms of my hands.

Since all of you have children you can relate to the statement in this week’s devotion, “If you want to get on my good side just be good to one on my kids, Conversely, if you want
to make me angry, pick my kids”  How true this is. For Bev and I this also applies to grandkids.

The topic that is brought to the surface in this devotion is do you realize that you wife/husband is Gods child?  God as a father-in-law and you are married to his child, Wow!! 

Bev and I prayed that each one of our children would choose wisely.  As the earthly father-in-law I approve and thank God for the wise choices. 

Think about how you treated your husband or wife this past week-is that how you want your son or daughter to be treated by his or her spouse.  Never forget: you didn’t just marry a man or a woman
you married God’s son or God’s daughter.

  1. It’s nice to know that our “heavely father” is protective and watching out for us.
    I’m thankful that like a good dad he doesn’t let me get very far out of line before putting me in my place and he doesn’t allow others to mistreat me without consequences. I always wanted to make my dad proud . . . always will.

  2. I heard this concept several years ago at the Love and Respect conference. It really changed my way of thinking. Matt always treats me respectfully and threatens to beat up anyone who does not do likewise. (That can be an issue for future converstaions…. 🙂 )

  3. This concept does take marriage to that next level I remember the first time I heard it it was very eye opening. No one wants God as the ticked off father-n-law.
    And I dont threaten to beat up people that are mean to Kris. I refer to it as bending them over a barrell and taking them out in one shot. This can be accomplished in many different ways.
