MARRIAGE IS NOT FOR WEAKLINGS!
Text: Ephesians 6:10
“ In conclusion, be strong in the Lord (be empowered through your union with him); draw your strength from him (that strength which his boundless might provides)… ” -AMP
Marriage is such a great responsibility that comes with so many unimaginable challenges and demands on everything you are and everything you’ve got! Many are not aware of this and consequently are not properly prepared for it.
YOU MUST BE STRONG!
It takes two very strong and very determined people to have a strong marriage! The unexpected challenges that marriage throws your way are such that if you’re not strong spiritually, mentally, emotionally and physically, Satan will get you thinking that you married the wrong person or that it was not worth it after all!
MARRIAGE IS GOOD!
But i tell you, marriage is God’s will for you. And, will a loving father will evil or destruction for his children?
God is the one that made marriage, and everything God made was “very good” – including the male and female he made to live in marriage and make the most of it for their maximum joy and fulfilment, and for the fulfilment of His purpose for creating man (as is recorded in Genesis 1:26-28).
BUT WHEN SIN CAME…
Sin came and surplanted the God-essence in the first husband and wife, corrupted their hearts, and then everything,(including marriage) became a struggle! Now,two Godless and selfish people have to depend on what they think, feel and see to do marriage! Their spirits with which they could connect with God for wisdom for success in marriage and life in general, had been disconnected from God! Read all of Genesis chapter 3.
BUT THANK GOD!
God sent Jesus to remove both sin and Satan out of the way and consequently. reconnect man back to him and to everything that is good!
If you have accepted Jesus as your personal Lord and Savior, you are now a new man with a new spirit that can relate with God and draw life, wisdom and strength into your spirit, soul (mind, will and emotions), and body to have a strong; fulfilling and prosperous marriage as God had originally intended! Every other area of your life depends on it!
The mental, physical, emotional, material, physical and financial strength you need to stand strong and fulfil your own role in building a strong marriage that will guarantee your total fulfilment,all depend on your spiritual strength (3 John 1:3).And except you’re strong in the Lord and the power of His might, you cannot have spiritual strength!
I always say that it is very difficult to be a happy anything else in life if you’re not a happy husband/wife (or happily married). It’s better to remain single than to be married and not be happy in/with your marriage. Yes! Because it affects everything – no matter how much you try to act like it really doesn’t.
So, instead of thinking of quitting your marriage, suffering in silence, living in pain and regrets and sadness, go for the strength that comes from God! Spend more time with God in prayer, studying the Word, reading books and listening to anointed wisdom-impacting messages on CDs.
This is the only way out! May the Lord reward your efforts as you embark on this strategic search for a lasting solution to all the stress, hurts and uncertainties in your marriage! God bless you!
