Marriage Is Good!

Marriage is a covenant relationship. It should not be entered into lightly. There are several things that should be considered before we walk down the aisle to say those life changing words, “I do.” First, will you promise to share your love with your spouse only and make them first priority in your life after God? Second, will you commit to honoring your spouse in the good and bad times? Third, are you willing to die to self in order to have the marriage that God intended for you to have? I remember when my husband Joseph and I first got married. He wanted us to have one joint account for our checking and savings accounts. I was initially against the idea and considered demanding my way. However, after careful thought the Holy Spirit brought to my remembrance that I had it my way the first time around. You see, I was married once before right out of high school. We separated everything. We had our own credit cards, our own bank accounts, and of course our own secrets. Well it doesn’t take a rocket science to figure out that all the separation finally ended us up in divorce court. Why? Well the most obvious reason is because we did not see ourselves as one. In the beginning God said, “Therefore shall a man leave his father and his mother, and shall cleave unto his wife: and they shall be one flesh. (Gen:2:24)

Marriage requires that both you and your spouse see yourself as “one.” When you don’t see your marriage as one flesh it allows room for the devil to enter into your marriage. The” devil comes to kill, steal and destroy.” (John 10:10) Marriage is good in God’s eye. Will you make a commitment today to work towards treating your spouse like he is your very own flesh? When you start seeing your spouse as yourself you will have no choice but to walk in love towards your spouse daily. It will become easier to forgive their transgressions and help you in becoming the spouse that God intended you to be from the very beginning. I know that some of us are coming from different places in our lives. Some of us might already have what we think are great marriages, while others might be at a place in their marriage where they feel that nothing will ever change. I urge you today to strive towards strengthening your marriage because the devil is always seeking to devour our “Good Thing.” Married is good and honorable in the sight of God so protect it by doing the maintenance that is required. Just like you take your car in for maintenance after so many miles… you also need to get your marriage serviced so that the love you once had will keep going and growing for years to come. For those marriages that are in trouble, trust and believe God’s word. He is a rewarder of those that diligently seek Him! (Hebrews 11:6)

My prayer is that God will bless your marriage. Remind yourself daily, “Marriage is good!”

Yours In Christ,
