Love is blind but marriage is an eye opener. The godlier you are, the godlier your family will become and the farther away crisis will be.
Selfishness, which is the opposite of love is one of the traps of the devil to destroy marriages. It is an abnormal affection for self and pursuit of selfish desires at the expense of your spouse or other members of your family. So, if you desire a sweet home, you must not give room to it
Joy and excitement are the spices of life. Unfortunately, they are the major things lacking in most homes today. Some couples even find it difficult to smile at one another. There is no anointing when you display hard faces. It does not cast out demon and your family is there to be celebrated.
When God’s nature rubs off on you; you will be injected with His kind of personality. And because God loves sacrificially and unconditionally; you will begin to love your family members in the same way and it becomes a lifestyle.
A woman who loves God, will receive a harvest of love from her husband.
A woman who respects God, will find it natural to respect her husband.
A man who respects God, will receive a harvest of respect from his wife.
A man who loves God, will find it a natural thing to love his wife.
Husband, involve your wife in the decision making process. Be prepared to listen to her contributions and advise, but accept responsibility for the final decision. Wife, avoid declaring third world war in the house because your husband did not take your advice. Make room for compromise and win his heart on your knees in prayer and right attitude.
Singles, right attitude is everything in connecting to a good spouse. Work on yourself, if you are a tiger when provoked casually, it will take another person who must have carried the cross with Jesus to say ‘HOW FAR’ with marriage.
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.”
