Marriage 508

God’s intention for marriage is to offer partnership and companionship. This divinely inspired partnership was designed to fortify both participants, in ways that mere words cannot aptly express or define.

Your single years are actually the foundation years of your life and destiny. That you are still single is the best time to find out the reason for your existence! To miss this reason is to live in misery. If you do not lay a solid foundation for your life while you are single, the future cannot be guaranteed. I decree, Your destiny shall not collapse in Jesus name!

Husband and wife that pretend in church and raise hands to worship God while they are not talking together or living happily at home are only wasting time because it is difficult to enjoy fellowship with God, when your fellowship with your spouse is disrupted.

Even though some couples dwell together under the same roof, constant quarrels and rancour can pull them kilometres apart; even though they live together but will live in loneliness. Such marriages are always empty: a pointer to frustrations and possible divorce.

True companionship will add meaning to your marriage. Your spouse is not just your room-mate, but also your closest friend.  Your spouse ought to be your best consultant and closest associate in all things. When this happens, you will find pleasure and fulfilment in your marriage relationship.

Singles, Are you in the place where God can lead you? For instance, you can’t expect Him to direct you to a Christian mate, if you are hanging around people who don’t have good reputations, or engaged in premarital sex. God won’t direct you if you are neglecting times of personal prayer and worship, or harbouring sinful attitudes. You can’t expect God’s help in choosing a mate, if you are living in disobedience to His will. This is why it becomes very important that you surrender your life to Christ and become born again.

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.”
