Marriage is a wonderful thing. God has given us the institution of marriage for us to share our lives with one another in love and happiness.
The Bible says in Mark 10:6-9
“But from the beginning of the creation God made them male and female.
For this cause shall a man leave his father and mother, and cleave to his wife;
And they twain shall be one flesh: so then they are no more twain, but one flesh.
What therefore God hath joined together, let not man put asunder.”
God’s plan is for man and woman to be ONE in marriage. And through marriage, the husband (man) and the wife (woman) will grow a family that loves and serves the Lord.
From the very beginning, we were instructed by God to multiply and be fruitful. The Bible says in Genesis 1:28 (NKJV):
“Then God blessed them, and God said to them,
“Be fruitful and multiply; fill the earth and subdue it;
have dominion over the fish of the sea, over the birds of the air,
and over every living thing that moves on the earth.””
Marriage was created by God to last. To build a long lasting marriage, your marriage must be rooted in faith. Marriage is a covenant between MAN, WOMAN, and GOD.
In today’s world, long lasting marriages are hard to come by, but it doesn’t mean that you can’t make it happen! I, personally, am now celebrating 40 wonderful years of being married. And I am here to you to tell you that a long lasting marriage is truly possible!
The Bible says in Ecclesiastes 4:9-12 (NKJV)
“Two are better than one,
Because they have a good reward for their labor.
For if they fall, one will lift up his companion.
But woe to him who is alone when he falls,
For he has no one to help him up.
Again, if two lie down together, they will keep warm;
But how can one be warm alone?”
Build a long lasting marriage by inviting the Holy Spirit to work within you and your spouse. Keep your marriage rooted in faith and let all your actions glorify the Lord!
