There are many things in life that present themselves as being very important.
When The LORD tells you there is something He wants to do, or to say, or for you to write, that means He has your attention for His purpose and His intent.
His preeminence is obviously the grand scheme of things.
Does He make room for things that will seem to alter your attention to what He is saying?
Listening to all the voices of your children in the Family circle can be a challenge. Which one do we listen to first?
Where do we focus our attention the most? When they all clamber all at once, we tend to say; “Stop, one at a time!”
Scripture states: “Husbands, love you wives as Christ loved the Church and gave Himself for it,” (Ephesians 5:25)
If your wife has a need to get something repaired, and the only one that can do it is you, while you are being called to follow The LORD’s Voice at the same moment, remember that The LORD knows the thoughts He has toward you.
They are thoughts of peace, not of evil, to give both of you a future and hope. There is far more good in taking care of what she needs.
The LORD will honor in His own way the husband and wife who treat each other with the respect they have for each other.
What do you think The LORD wanted me to write? The very concept of husband and wife dwelling with each other according to knowledge.
Husband, you have known your wife for all those years you have been together. By the same token; wife, you have known him as well for all the years you have been together.
My wife and I have been married for over 45 years. She can tell when The LORD has been getting my attention for His Purpose.
It is what I believe is the gift of discernment. She has known for many years of my desire to serve The LORD by listening for His Voice and responding to him as soon as I hear Him.
That is how we both serve The LORD together. We may not have the same giftings, but we have developed into a prophetic team together.
I thank The LORD for His indescribable gift; my wife, Maryellen Downes.
