13 Dec 2021: MARRIAGE IS A PROJECT (2) – Ephesians 5:33; Proverbs 14:1

You need to check the original reason you got married to your spouse. Did you have a godly need for each other beyond sexual needs? What happens if something happens to one of you and you can’t have sex any longer? Will that be the death of your marriage? These are issues your must resolve. You might have been married for 15 years, but why are you married to your spouse? Why are you doing what you are doing?

The very original reason a young man found out that he needs a wife is fundamental. Some couples got married not because they wanted to do so, but their parents pushed them into it. It means you didn’t marry for yourself; you married for the sake of your parents. That is why you don’t know what to do in marriage; you were not ready. You didn’t have any compelling personal reason to look for a woman. Some people got married for socio-cultural reasons.

If you understand the original reason for your marriage, nobody will push you out of it. Why I married is compelling enough to make me continue in my marriage. Our reason for marriage is stronger than any challenge we can face; our reason for marriage is bigger than any problem the devil can throw at us. When people walk away from marriage, why did they marry in the first place? Why did you take that lady out of her father’s house? Why did you say ‘Yes’ to him? Having that understanding is critical to maintaining your marriage.

PRAYER: Lord, I receive divine enlightenment and baptism of understanding of your divine purpose for my marriage.

Obadiah 1:1-21, Revelation 4:1-11, Psalm 132:1-18, Proverbs 29:24-25
