Two are better than one; because they have a good reward for their labour.  For if they fall, the one will lift up his fellow: but woe to him that is alone when he falleth; for he hath not another to help him up.

Two are better than one.” This is what God has said, and that statement cannot be improved upon. This is one of the underlying principles in marriage. If two friends will be better than a husband and his wife, then the all-knowing God in all His wisdom, omnipotence and omniscience would have started with two friends when He put man on the earth but right from the beginning, the strongest human force on the earth has been the marriage force.

If Adam and Steve would be better than Adam and Eve, God would have created Adam and Steve or Eve and Evelyn, but He created Adam and Eve to lay the foundation of His purpose on earth. This is a truth you must settle to have a blissful marriage

Everyone must understand that the ideal is that two are better than one. This is God’s position which is different from your experience and exposure. It is only a foolish person that wants to operate alone anywhere in life. Two ministers are better than one. When Jesus was sending out His disciples, He sent them out two by two (Mark 6:7). This confirms God’s position for you that two are better than one. Two students reading together are better than one student reading alone. Two people working together on the same project are better than one person doing such alone.

 

It is because the coming together of the husband and wife is the best and strongest expression of “two are better than one” that the devil focuses on marriage to attack it. Understand that the devil does not attack strength, he attacks weakness. He is a smart coward who checks out for the weak link in every union to attack it. God's expectation of your marriage is to deliver God’s seed and conquer the world for Him. Embrace the principle of two are better than one and keep your marriage if you are married and if you are not, press to get God’s will for your life. May the Lord fulfill His divine mandate in your union in Jesus’ name.

Prayer: Lord, I embrace the power of two and the force of marriage. I choose to run my life and home according to your plan and agenda. I receive every blessing that marriage is designed to release into my life and destiny in Jesus’ name. Amen.
