Welcome, In this post “God’s Design for Marriage.” we will delve into the divine blueprint that God has set forth for the sacred institution of marriage.
Let’s explore the profound wisdom and timeless principles that guide this blessed union ordained by our Creator.
Jesus said in Matthew 19:4-6:And he answered and said unto them, Have ye not read, that he which made them at the beginning made them male and female, And said, For this cause shall a man leave father and mother, and shall cleave to his wife: and they twain shall be one flesh? Wherefore they are no more twain, but one flesh. What therefore God hath joined together, let not man put asunder (Matthew 19:4-6 (KJV).
Understanding God’s Design for Marriage:
God’s Design for marriage: There are diverse personalities with varied histories, and their families raise them differently, for a man and a woman to leave their families to become one. Only God can make a marriage perfect.
People nowadays get married without God’s approval, and all of these things lead to divorce because any relationship that God does not approve of, the foundation is incapable of being solid.
People may get married through social media, which is fine, but no matter how beautiful or handsome the person is, you must ensure that God approves of the marriage.
How can you tell whether or not God approves of a marriage?
God’s Design for marriage: God will never deny you, and he will show you if he or she is the right person for you. Many mistakes a lot of people make in marriage is because they choose for themselves,
they don’t put it in prayer, and they don’t allow God to decide for them, always having a lack of patience to do what you want and not following God’s will.
Being raised in different ways and still wanting to join as one, definitely, a solid foundation is required for any kind of marriage.
Let Me Tell You A Short Story:
A guy abandoned his fiancée on the wedding altar because she spend too much time on make-up; the man phoned her several times, but she kept saying that she wanted to look so beautiful for him because it was their wedding day.
The bride and groom’s family went to meet her to come that she has wasted a lot of time already, but she continued saying that the day is her day.
and she wants to look absolutely stunning for her groom. However, the groom grew weary of waiting for her and declared that he no longer wanted to get married to her.
All of the groom and bride’s family members began pleading with him to stay in the marriage and the bride pleaded with him to keep the wedding from being called off.
If God blesses the marriage, the bride can stay as long as she wishes, and the groom will always be patient with her since marriage requires endurance, trust and understanding;
why shouldn’t the groom endure for the bride? God did not give his blessing to the marriage since the foundation of the relationship is weak, for God never starts things without finishing them.
Many relationships end over trivial issues, others argue that because their wife can’t cook, they will start having extramarital affairs and before you know it the marriage will crash.
It takes God for a lady and a man with different origins, personalities, and upbringing to live together and be perfect.
God’s design for marriage:
God’s Design for marriage: As a man when another man’s daughter is handed over to you as a wife, she has become your responsibility from that day on.
As a woman who wishes to leave her family and go to her in-laws, submit to them and enjoy everything your spouse offers you, as God wills. The Bible says
Marriage is honourable in all, and the bed undefiled: but whoremongers and adulterers God will judge (Hebrews 13:4 ( KJV).
Do you understand why we need God before any relationship? It is very simple for a husband who does not fear the Lord to do such things to his wife because he did not have the fear of God to manage every situation and obstacle that we may come across in marriage.
He has the power to abuse her, reject her, and even engage in extramarital affairs. The same is true for the woman, if she doesn’t likewise have God in her, she might do many types of things since she doesn’t know or fear God; such as engaging in extramarital affairs and dressed improperly.
The Bible says in Ephesians 5:33 and in Proverbs 19:14Nevertheless let every one of you in particular so love his wife even as himself; and the wife see that she reverence her husband (Ephesians 5:33 (KJV).
House and riches are the inheritance of fathers: and a prudent wife is from the Lord (Proverbs 19:14 (KJV).
Embrace your husband with humility as a wife. Live a God-fearing life together, be devoted to one another, and you will be able to raise children who also follow God. The Bible says in Ephesians 5:25-26:
Husbands, love your wives, even as Christ also loved the church, and gave himself for it; That he might sanctify and cleanse it with the washing of water by the word (Ephesians 5:25-26 (KJV).
Wife, submit yourself to your husband; husband, submit yourself to your wife.
The most crucial aspect of being a husband and wife is having God and having a deep respect for him. Never forget that God’s Design for marriage is really important.
Jesus said in Matthew 7:24–27:Therefore whosoever heareth these sayings of mine, and doeth them, I will liken him unto a wise man, which built his house upon a rock:
And the rain descended, and the floods came, and the winds blew, and beat upon that house; and it fell not: for it was founded upon a rock.
And every one that heareth these sayings of mine, and doeth them not, shall be likened unto a foolish man, which built his house upon the sand:
And the rain descended, and the floods came, and the winds blew, and beat upon that house; and it fell: and great was the fall of it (Matthew 7:24–27 (KJV).
I Prophesy Into Your Life That:
1.May you receive the grace to love God and live a God fearing life in your marital relationship in Jesus mighty name Amen.
