Hi, Jesus loves you.
Many marriages are not what God ordained it to be. Marriage is to give peace and joy to the couple and glory to God. However in recent times, the rate of marriage failure has greatly increased. But there is solution to this marriage crisis and that is a walk with God!
Yet you say, “For what reason?” Because the Lord has been witness between you and the wife of your youth, with whom you have dealt treacherously; yet she is your companion and your wife by covenant – Malachi 2:14 (NKJV)
God initiated marriage in the first place with Adam and Eve and is a witness between you and your spouse. He laid down rules and regulations on how to have joy and peace in your marriage – Ephesians 5:21-31. These rules are the pillars for success in marriage.
Therefore to successfully deal with issues in your marriage, you need to purely adhere to God’s principles. And you can only appreciate these principles when you retrace your steps back to God. Your walk with God will reveal to you the areas of your marriage you need to address and God will give you the wisdom on how to address them.
Many times people tend to blame their spouses for the problems they are facing but they never consider that they may be the main cause of the problem. When you walk with God, He will always point out to you where you are going wrong and what to do to correct it. He speaks to us through our conscience and His word (the bible)
Some of the issues that cause problems in homes include lack of attention, communication breakdown, financial problems, pride etc. These are largely wisdom problems and can be dealt with when you apply the wisdom from God’s word. God’s wisdom is higher than man’s wisdom. Man’s wisdom is selfish but God’s wisdom is full of love.
It takes two people to fight. When you are walking with God, He will go ahead and touch your spouse, enabling her to have a positive attitude towards you and whatever challenge you may be having. If the problem seems to linger, you will still have peace having the assurance that God is working it out for you. And with your prayers in line with God’s word, mixed with faith, you will surely overcome all challenges in your marriage.
It is therefore very important that you get to know more about God, His principles for a successful marriage and obey them. God has designed marriage for you to enjoy and if the enemy is trying to crash your union, do not be dismayed because God Almighty is more than able to handle the issue.
You are not to have anything short of joy and peace in your marriage, so decide to walk with God today.
