Marriage has been on my mind lately. Not because I’m getting married soon but then again soon can be in a blink of an eye and a lot had led me to pray concerning different things. When I pray, things cross my mind that I like to share and this is how I understand it. Also, I pray that God will give me the grace to understand more and really hold on to His word.
Now we cannot talk about what God has said without referring to His Word:
1 Corinthians 3:11
For no one can lay a foundation other than that which is laid, which is Jesus Christ.
In marriage, there is only one foundation that needs to be laid and that foundation is on Christ. Any other foundation that you build on is going to cause you to loose your house when the storms come (Matthew 7:25-27).
A lot of marriages and families are built on artificial stuff and when troubles and tribulations and misunderstanding come, it is “to your tent oh Israel”.
Secondly, woman oh woman, how powerful you are! Some women don’t even know. You are so powerful that if you are not careful you can take a man out of the plan that God has designed for him – like Eve 👀 whoop yeah!
It’s your assignment to help your spouse and not mislead him because of your own selfish interests.
As a woman( let me speak for myself), I know what it means to have glistening eyes. It is easy to take advantage of a man that loves you so much to do something that he should not do and then it comes down to “it was the devil”.
Basically what I’m trying to say is be content and have godly wisdom( There’s also the wisdom of the world).It’s very important that you use your single years to really be grounded in God’s word so that you don’t tempt your husband to the point that he has to choose between you and God.
Men have to learn to keep their women in check and grounded. If she is doing something that is contrary to God’s word and the principles of your marriage please correct- don’t in the name of “love” cover your wife’s sin; and also, correct in love, cause even correcting your spouse can be a whole different ball game. You have to learn to let your pride down. You have to learn to listen to each other and submit to each other.
God will help us.
