The adversary picks fights and tempts certain people according to God’s purpose and mission for their life. Christ purpose was to preach The Good News and to Redeem humanity from sin. The adversary fought and tempted Christ according to this information. Since Christ was God in the flesh, He could not sin, yet was tested, but NOT inwardly tempted to a point to consider turning a stone into bread, testing God or worshiping the adversary. Christ was tested in every way according to His purpose and He is able to empathize with you because He knows the adversary too well. He saw sin defined through the adversary and watched him fall from Heaven because thy art in Heaven. In the beginning was the Word, and the word is Christ, Christ was with God in the beginning. Christ was not tempted to deceive, kill, steal or destroy anyone. He was not tempted to abuse a woman, sexually abuse a child, sleep with a man or a woman. That is to say, He was not tempted in every way because He was born of the spirit. He did not seek love, financial stability, friends acceptance or fame. His only purpose was to serve God. Be thankful you have a High Priest who understands how you feel and what you’re going through. Praise God! #Matthew4 #Hebrew4
Some relationships are intentionally undefined for the option of having the benefits of it, but not the commitment.–Melvin Davis
Before I get into the message of this message, I pray that you seek God in love life. Who God has for and who you have mind may not align together. Pray about that person before you get emotionally involve. The common mistake women make is mistaking good sex for love. Men often translate giving gifts to secure a relationship. Lust doesn’t translate into love and It sure isn’t a strong foundation to build a relationship on. Love can’t be purchased at a price. No matter how much you spend on a woman to buy her love, it can’t be bought. You are either renting her or giving her materialistic things instead of giving your time. A women of God isn’t moved by expensive gifts or any gifts if she can provide those things on her own and she knows the love is found in how much time a man spends with her. Quality time is when friendships are developed, respect and faithfulness is established, God is talked about as being first, which in sum, gives love a foundation to stand up on.
Your body is truly a temple. It’s where the Holy Spirit resides. He sends a message to your heart to let you know what’s not of the God the Father. That’s called conviction. God can do more with a heart set on pleasing him than willfully doing your own thing. I encourage you to wait until the day you say, “I do.” You will save yourself from unnecessary soul-ties, regrets and building the foundation of your relationship on premature intimacy. I know this is a challenge, but it’s worth undertaking. God keeps His word. He is not a liar.
Human behavior is intriguing. Through watching dating couples in public I can tell if they have just met, have been dating for a long time, or if they’re in or not in love. I could also see these things in married couples as well. I want o share five ways you can tell you are Single in Public.
The space couples share between each other is significant. Too much distance sends a message to the person you’re with, and to the public, that you aren’t together. Intimacy is defined as “familiar” or “personal” or “private”. In a relationship, intimacy is an emotional and spiritual sacred connection you share with someone. You are familiar with that person because you intimately know each other. Sex is a form of intimacy, but it’s not the kind I’m talking about. A few synonyms of intimacy are nearness, closeness and inseparable. There’s a sense of warmness and closeness between two couples in public when they are in love. Affection is visible, even if it’s a stroke against the arm, a hand resting on the lower back or a kiss on the lips or the cheek . This is what intimacy looks like in public.
Too much distance, silence, a lack of chemistry and connectivity is either a sign of an emotional or spiritual disconnect. Or worse, the person doesn’t feel the same way you do. Confessing you are in a relationship in secret doesn’t suggest you are in public.
Too much distance is a negative.
2. Body Language.
Every person isn’t “mushy” in public. Some people are uncomfortable with PDA. For others, it takes time to arrive to this point. Another reason could be is self-consciousness.
Interesting enough, some people or couples care about how they are perceived in public when they show affection. Some men don’t want to be perceived as weak or sensitive. They feel like PDA subtracts from their masculinity. There some women who don’t want to be viewed as clingy or insecure. These are some valid reasons for not showing affection in public.
However, when you are in love, nothing else outside of the sacred union of your relationship matters. You don’t care what others think or have to say about you. Better yet, you are excited to show that person off. You This is you’re opportunity to share your testimony meeting that special person publicly. Unfortunately, there are dishonest people who are in relationships with God-fearing, faithful and passionately devoted people. Here are two examples that poor body language.
a. If you’re out at restaurant, a cafe, or somewhere sitting down or standing, and an attractive person walks in, and your significant other eyes shift and stay on that person, not only are they acknowledging their physical attraction, but they’re signal of interest is non-verbally communicated. Or, and I’ve witnessed this happen a lot, a persons entire body will shift in the direction of the person they’re attracted or interested in. They’re chest or head will slightly turn in their direction. This is simple an invitation communicated with body language. I’ve done this before and saw women respond that way to me. This kind of behavior happening in your relationship is a no no.
b. Hands and arms are close to the body.
Couples tend to hold hands in public or intertwine arms when they’re on the same page with each other. But when one person is unfaithful in their heart, their hands will be preoccupied with everything else except the person they’re with. Men will often stuff their hands in their pockets to demonstrate they are not with the woman they’re with. Women will fiddle in their purse. In 2015, both men and women will hop in their phone to respond to text and FB messages, etc. Distance is also created by stepping away.
3. An Improper Introduction.
There’s nothing more awkward and disappointing than meeting your significant friend (s), and you hear, this is _insert name___ , instead of this is my boy or girlfriend, fiancé. If you’re simply introduced by name without the title, you may want to question the authenticity of your relationship.
There really isn’t an excuse of introducing your significant other by their name only. Love is not absentminded. Love means that you put the person love first. Of course, not above God. When that person is first in your life, they are a priority. You’re always thinking of them. You are thinking of them in private and in public. Being relationship conscious communicates that you are in love. When you are in love, the person you’re introducing significant should know they are more than just a friend.
I’m sure you heard the saying, “this is a part of my personality. I’m flirtatious.” Well, there’s a difference between being outgoing, and “friendly” vs flirting. I’m more than glad to break it down for you. I mention earlier love is mindful. Love is also respectful
Given the mindfulness and respect you have for the love of your life, you are aware of how you interact with the opposite sex. It means you are conscious that certain behaviors, interactions and conversations (in person, on social media, via text or over the phone) are no longer acceptable.
The absence of respect and mindfulness results to flirting. Flirting unveils that you don’t appreciate the person you’re with and value the relationship you have with them. Flirting furthermore indicates you single and available to entertain someone outside of the relationship. Firing lets the other person know they have a chance.
5. Public Indifference.
It’s amazing how couples treat each other in public. Couples who are truly in love are extremely comfortable in public. They’re very much playful, communicative, affectionate , transparent and respectful. You could literally sense the genuine love they have for each other. Another way to tell if you’re single in public is public indifference.
Public indifference is an opportunity for a significant other to create a riff or conflict to kill PDA . Arguments in public is an excuse to be cold, distant and indifferent so you don’t have to stand near, hold hands or talk.
If these are behaviors of you’ve witnessed in your relationship, its take to pray and have that talk. It’s no a good feeling to feel you are only a couple in private. It’s not fair to you. I pray that you make the wise decisionl
Professing your love and admiration for your woman publicly is more masculine than not saying anything at all.-Melvin Davis
I confess that I’m not a relationship expert, nor do I claim to understand women 100%. I don’t have all the answers. I do ask God for the understanding, knowledge and wisdom of how to court and love the woman He has for me. This is my way of preparing for marriage. I want the woman I marry to say, “I’m the reason her eyes are filled with contentment, tears of peace and joy. And that her parents, close family members and friends smile, because “I’m in her life.” More importantly, I want to be the reason she looks forward to expressing her love each day. I also pray to be a great husband. I envision teaching my son how to court a woman, and what my daughter should expect when a guy is really into her. I also imagine explaining to them about the man I used to be, and the person I became in Christ, which made it possible to marry their mother, hence, why they exist. I’m advocate that women are one of the greatest gifts to men.
I’m sure all men can say without theory, based on concrete empirical facts of their experiences, women are a little complicated at times. I’m sure the majority of them could agree. I don’t mean this as a negative. I see beauty in woman’s complexities, how her emotions often envelope over one another like water colors on a canvas–yet the picture is still beautiful, transparent and clear–sometimes only understood by the eyes of her lover. How a woman’s mind works with depth, intelligence, humor and spirit, is all a wonder to me. However, no matter how complex some women are, they long for the basic essentials that makes her feel alive, loved, cared for, and like a woman. Let’s go a little deeper to see what I mean that. I suggest reading Proverbs 31 to truly enjoy this ride. As you read, see the kind of man a Proverbs 31 woman could see walking beside.
- A Proverbs 31 woman longs for a man who can trust her.
A way to build trust with a woman is to establish an authentic and transparent friendship with her. When you’re getting to know a person, hesitance rises of revealing who you really are. This is the imperfect, flawed person. I understand the temptation of presenting a near perfect, appealing person, but we know that isn’t the case. You have to keep in mind that people will expect what you’re advertising. Be honest. My motto is: A person may actually like you if they have a chance to know the imperfect you. I understand you may or may not expose certain details about your personal life and relationship experiences, failures, weakness and shortcomings. at first There’s a time and a place to dispense such information. Timing is critical role of how a friendship develops and relationship unfolds. Ultimately, a woman would only get to know and respect you if you’re up front with her. A mature woman isn’t going to judge or look down on you so don’t worry. She wants to see the man who you have evolved and matured into. Personal and spiritual growth is a plus in her eyes. She would appreciate you in the now if she understood your past.
Trust is something a woman wants in a man. It’s impossible to have a relationship without trust. Your trust in her encourages her to be genuine, confident and carefree in your presence and in public.
- A Proverbs 31 woman desires a man who’s consistent in doing “good” to her and not harm.
Consistency presents pressure. It means you have to stay on top of doing something over and over to achieve the same results, but this is where God’s power, grace and mercy steps in. This is where it’s important for a man to have a strong relationship with God.
There are days when you’re going to fail at loving, but an understanding, compassionate and self-less woman already understands that. You’re human. She’s human. It’s your effort that moves her, and your desire to consistently love her that makes her smile when she’s thinking of you. Effort simply shows that you care.
The importance of keep God first in a relationship is that He helps to sustain it. He will give you the knowledge and wisdom to love her in a way that’s consistent and effective, if you ask.
A lack of effort and care is what causes her arm. I’m under the belief, and I know this may sound cliche, but hey, it’s true. Women are like plants. You have to water and pay attention to them on a consistent basis. You water a woman with unconditional love, thoughtfulness, adoration, kindness, patience, understanding, etc. See the Fruits of the Holy Spirit in Corinthians.
- She wants a man who has a taste for excellence and a strong work ethic.
A taste for excellence represents the quality of your work ethic. In other words, what your purpose is in life, or what is of importance to you. For me, it’s writing and my relationship with God. I put my best into what’s a priority because I want to see great results. Loving a woman works the same way.
When your heart is set on pleasing a woman, you want her to have the best, and you’ll work hard to accomplish those measurable means.
Sometimes giving your best is sacrificing a hobby to spend more time with her, getting up early to exercise with her, lending a helping hand with choirs or dinner.
- A woman longs for a man who could enhance or add something to her life–not the opposite.
It’s never a good idea to pursue a woman who wants to experience true love, and you have no intentions of truly loving her. She’s not looking for added confusion or unnecessary pain, if she’s already accompanied by challenges of her own.
Besides having stability and independence into the equation, walk into a woman’s life with a sense of who you are and your purpose. A man with purpose is appealing to a woman with purpose. Also, offer her unconditional love, commitment and the absence of pride and ego.
In order to enhance something, something has to be already there or in a place. A Proverbs 31 woman isn’t looking for a man to define, complete or take care of her. She knows her identity. She is whole, self-sufficient and is able to take care of herself. Being wooed by monetary means is just an option to her.
- A woman longs for a man who can to speak to her mind.
To take a woman outside of her emotions, and into a place she seldom experiences touch, which is in the pacific of her mind, your conversation has to be enriched with something that feathers her interest.
Intimacy happens before any heated moment. In any way am I’m offering advice of how to get a woman in bed. I believe you should wait to share yourself in marriage. However, intimacy begins with conversation. Intellectual stimulation has mental and physical reactions. Romantically, conversation is a way to turn a woman’s wheels upstairs. To have her think, laugh, smile, or consider you for advice, because of your conversation, sketches you into her life as an ideal husband. A woman who thinks long-terms wants have a man she could talk to, and actually enjoy as a person.
If you’re not versed in areas she’s interested in, do the homework. Find out why intrigues her, and meet her there in the given topical conversation. This shows that you she matters to you.
There are five more things I believe a woman longs for…coming up next.
Imperfections reveals our humanity. Your consistent devotion to one another is perfection.–Melvin Davis
You may fall short at loving each other, but promise to forever respect, love and be faithful to one another. That’s unconditional love. –Melvin Davis
You could miss out on the beauty of a person, and love for that matter, if you become so focused on how different they are than you. Distinctions often welcomes you into new attractions. It also brings balance.–Melvin Davis
Tomorrow marks the last day of my spiritual fast. I committed to a 21 day fast. From the time I wake up until 6 p.m., I go without food. It’s been challenging. I did eat the last two Sundays. The first Sunday I had dinner with a friend. The last Sunday, i was led to eat–not by my flesh, but by the spirit. Since fasting, of course I lost some weight and muscle mass. That was expected, but now I’m walking with a great sense of clarity, a higher level of spiritual discernment and my faith is getting stronger. 2015 is year to step out on faith. In other words, it’s time to walk on water.
Taking the limits off of your thinking is challenging–even when you have some relationship with God. I thought my relationship with God was strong. Apparently, it wasn’t. A part of me was still operating with logic and in fear. Logic suggested not to start a business. I thought, and a few people have suggested, that I needed to return to school to acquire such credentials that looks good on paper, but God has already qualified me. A mentor I met helped me realize that. I’m thankful for her. Her presence in my life is on time. I already have a degree that has equipped me to minister and the experience to do the will of God with power and authority.The proof is in how God’s uses me to help and heal others. Fear said if you make x, y, z decision, this could happen to you because of what I encountered in the past. I have some stories to tell, but at a later time. But the trauma from those faith building times gripped me with fear. I had to remember how God delivered and provided for me. You have to remember.
What is God asking you to do, but doesn’t make sense or stirs up fear? Without faith, it’s truly impossible to please God. It’s my prayer that trust God every step of the way. Yes, it’s a scary feeling, but you’ll never know what God has for you to perceive Him to be less than your circumstances.
This is a time act on what you study and who you believe in. The word of God is real, and so is the God you’re reading about and praying to.
When two people are deeply in love with each other, neither person has to worry about unfaithfulness or to what extent love is being reciprocated. It’s a given.–Melvin Davis
