Marriage is so important. There’s a reason the enemy is trying to destroy the fabric of the family in every way. Marriage, one man and one woman, this is the way. Children need a father and a mother. This fact has been proven time and time again. Other countries are attempting to aid in the destruction of the family unit in America because they know that strong families are necessary for a strong nation. The enemy has been working overtime too…he hates all things family…because family is a reflection of the Godhead…three in One. Father, Son, and Holy Spirit. God is a family within Himself. Out of sheer jealousy, the enemy seeks to destroy family.
Out of pain and disappointment, many join in on the side of familial destruction. We should never let our wounding be our guide though. When wounds guide us, then they never heal. God is Healer. When we lean into His ways and His plan, then we discover the grace to be made whole.
We should honor marriage. Respect it even. It teaches us what it is to be faithful. Marriage is an opportunity to be refined by God. It takes grand humility and steadfastness to remain in a joyful marriage.
Give honor to marriage and remain faithful to one another in marriage. God will surely judge people who are immoral and those who commit adultery. Don’t love money; be satisfied with what you have. For God has said, “I will never fail you. I will never abandon you.” So we can say with confidence, “The Lord is my helper, so I will have no fear. What can mere people do to me?” Hebrews 13:4-6
I love this scripture. “Be satisfied with what you have.” This pertains to not only money, but also marriage.
Isn’t every “wandering” eye not lead by dissatisfaction? Isn’t all comparison urged on by dissatisfaction?
We must remain open to the knowledge that learning to be satisfied brings us one step closer to the “more” that we all desire. The way to more of God, is to first learn to be satisfied in His presence.
The times in marriage when I’ve become disgruntled and unsatisfied, are the times when I have allowed dissatisfaction to take hold in my heart. This is me being totally honest with you.
The times when we want only what we don’t have, are times when we’ve lost focus on God as our Source. Maintaining a life that holds God in the number one position is a continual decision…that eventually becomes much more of a habit…but will always be a daily choice.
God is my Husband first. When I keep that in mind, then everything else will fall into place.
