Marriage 401

Marriage is for help, not hurt. It is a decision made by you to help the other party fulfil his or her goals and vision in life, and vice versa.

Every child of God is a seed of Abraham and we are Prophets. It means whatever we say, God will honour. We carry blessings and we can also release curses by unspoken word. Therefore, when you take the wife of a child of God and plan to convert her as your wife, God says you are a dead man. If you doubt it, ask King Abimelech (Genesis 20:3-6)

Children are natural mimics; they imitate their parents. If you are smoker, your children will be chain smokers. Unfortunately, many Parents preach what they don’t do, and you know what? The children know! Learn from the master. Jesus began to do before He began to teach (Acts 1:1). Receive grace to do before you teach in Jesus’ name!

Period of courtship is a time to prove his or her maturity. In God’s concept, marriage is for men and women, not for boys and girls. One need to mature spiritually, physically and emotionally and this must be addressed in courtship. It is better to decide not to continue with the marriage than to be married to the wrong person.

Maturity can be determined by age and ability to handle life situations. These two, put together, help in determining how mature an individual is. One that is mature for marriage should be able to assume responsibility for his or her actions, and take up the welfare of his or her spouse and children. If you are not mature enough to be a parent, then you are not mature enough for marriage. Adulthood is a basic requirement for success in marriage.

Mothers are solution providers. They are blessings and not burdens to their families and they need to be appreciated. Also, the woman that sings the husband’s praise to the ears of the children shall not have high blood pressure.

You are the builder of your home. Therefore, accept responsibilities and stop wishing. Work on making your home a success, and you will reap the fruits of your labour. Expectation, as often said, is the mother of manifestation. Therefore, what do you expect your home to be? Success or failure; stressful or stress-free; full of troubles or peaceful? Make your choice today

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.”
