I will not speak with you much longer, for the prince of this world is coming. He has no hold on me, but the world must learn that I love the Father and that I do exactly what my Father has commanded me. — John 14:30-31
This verse was part of my Bible reading yesterday, and I found myself lingering over verse 31. You can almost hear the strength and yearning in Christ’s words. As God’s children, Jesus wants us to understand that He loves the Father and only wants to do His will. He’s all about the Father’s will.
As I read this, my thought was what an amazing example this gives us for our pursuit of faith and our relationship with God. We have this amazing Trinity of Father, Son and Holy Spirit, which is bound not only by power but by LOVE!
That’s a new thought for me and so amazing to comprehend. Our God is all about love, pure and simple. Good or bad, in the end, it’s all about how He loves us.
Lord, you are so amazing in your love for us, a love so deep and wide it’s incomprehensible and overwhelming! Thanks for love us so completely, so sacrificially, and so endlessly. We don’t deserve it, yet you gift us this amazing love out of your pure goodness. We worship and adore you. In Christ’s most holy name, amen!

Marching Around Jericho is a spiritual guide. As you read through the pages, powerful and transformative instruction and equipping takes place. We follow Jesus as he leads us around the walls, imparting kingdom truths with each passing, finally arriving at the gates of the walled-off city, our spouse’s unbelieving heart. After the circles in prayer are complete, we arrive fully prepared to command the walls to crumble and be removed, making a way for our spouse to step from the rubble of lies and captivity, into faith and freedom!
