When we expect our spouses to meet all our needs we inadvertently put them on a throne in our heart that was designed only for our Lord. When they fail to meet our expectations, we become disappointed and dissatisfied with them. This Valentine's day, give your spouse the gift of a relationship centered in God's love.
A relationship centered in God's love acknowledges that the Lord is your personal source of significance, security and satisfaction. When you seek God because "In His presence there is fullness of joy; at His right hand are pleasures forevermore." Psalm 16:11 then God can touch the secret places of your heart that no person ever could reach to give you the satisfaction your soul desires.
This Valentine's Day, rather than ramping up expectations for love and romance from your spouse, you could instead celebrate the love God has lavished on you. When we are plugged into God's love then His love flows freely into our marriages. And as His love spills over, it sparks the fireworks that we all hope for in a great Valentine's Day.❤
