Marriage 306

Abraham, at 75, left an unknown place and his wife was ‘stupid’ enough to follow him. This is an eternal lesson for every woman. If you are you are married, follow your husband to wherever he is, so that it won’t be too late for you. A word is enough for the wise. Sarah followed.

For every man there is a woman appointed to explode his destiny.

Marriage is designed to help you maximize your life, because God does not take His people backwards; He takes them forward

Keeping the home involves doing it physically and spiritually. Spiritually, you keep your home by prayers, the Word of God, fasting and watching. Physically, you keep it clean and tidy. The cleanliness in some homes commands attention, while in others, you wonder whether cleanliness means anything to them. No matter how small or big the place you are living is, keep it clean, to the glory of God. Some women appear neat outside, but leave their homes in a mess with everything there “rioting!” This is hypocrisy. Cleanliness is part of spirituality; therefore, woman, be clean inside and outside.

Don’t let your family prayers focus only on “me, myself and I. Stretch out your hand physically and give to others. Always look for an opportunity to be a blessing to others, because giving is living. Give to the needy and not just to your friends. Feed the hungry and your children will never be hungry. Whenever you give to the needy, you are doing it for God and He will surely repay you

When there is disagreement between you and your spouse, there is wisdom in prayer. Instead of arguing or fighting over issues, take your challenge to God in prayer; it works! The one you pray for (and with) you will find it difficult to fight!

A mother’s role in the life of a child is a non-transferrable responsibility. Mothers, don’t push your children to another person to train for you. Whatever means God gives to you, use it to bring up your children. Remember, you are answerable to God. Prepare your children for life ahead; that is your covenant responsibility. As a mother, it is your responsibility to mother and train your children spiritually and physically, bringing them up to become arrows in the hands of God

In some families today, you can’t find rest: the mother in the family is the chief perpetrator of discord. She is always nagging! You are supposed to be a comfort to your husband and children. A mother’s soothing touch and presence are meant to bring comfort, encouragement, relief, joy, rest, help and love to her family.

Finally, to fulfil God’s purpose for your marriage the first step is to accept Jesus Christ as your Lord and Saviour. Number two: To be a keeper and a solution provider requires the grace of God and to access that grace, you must be born again. If you want to be born again you need to say this prayer:

“Dear Lord Jesus Christ, I come to You today as a sinner. Forgive me of my Sins. I believe You died and rose on the third day for my sins. I accept You as my Lord and Saviour. Make me a child of God today. Thank You for accepting me into Your Kingdom.”
