1 Corinthians 13:4-8 (NIV)

Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud. It does not dishonor others, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs. Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth. It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres.Love never fails

I’ve heard this read at many weddings.  I have even had the honor of reading it majestically, and eloquently at a couple of them, LOL!  But reading it doesn’t prevent the divorce.  It’s doing it that’s the challenge.

Like ALL Scriptures, these verses have the potential to deliver what it promises.  This passage of Scripture can bring about successful marriages, restore broken homes and heal wounded hearts. However, it cannot be done in the energy of the flesh.  In fact, it’s impossible for a human being to fulfill the demands of this kind of love without Divine Intervention.

Too often, what people think is Love is really Lust disguised.  Lust can look and even feel like Love in the beginning.  Lust may even get an excited couple all the way to the altar. But when the storms of life hit, Lust will run out on you every time. 

In his awesome book, Love the way to Victory, the late Kenneth E. Hagin tells of a couple who were set on getting divorced.  He and his wife begged them to come over for dinner before finalizing their decision.  They agreed.  After dinner, he shared with them the above Scripture and asked them to read it out loud together every night before going to bed and every morning when they arise.

Before the week ended, they had reconciled and all divorce plans canceled.

 What happened?  John 6:63 is what happened!

the words that I speak unto you, they are spirit, and they are life.

 The Word of God is not just some ancient book.  It is a supernatural book that holds the secret to man’s “good” success in all areas of life when the instructions are followed.

Joshua 1:8 (NLT)

Study this Book of Instruction continually. Meditate on it day and night so you will be sure to obey everything written in it. Only then will you prosper and succeed in all you do.

 It also must be interpreted by an anointed man or woman of God.  When you come in contact with an anointed interpreter, your life goes to unimaginable heights!

They followed the instructions Mr. Hagin gave them and as a result the spirit of The Word entered their hearts and healing took place.

So, whether you are happily married, joyfully single or desiring a restoration of a broken life in any way, MEDITATE on 1 Corinthians 13:4-8 daily.  It will heal your heart, transform your mind and love will enter in.  It did it for me.  It can do the same for you.
