Nevertheless, to avoid fornication, let everyman have his own wife, and let every woman have her own husband.
MOTIVATIONAL QUOTE: Let purpose be the driving factor before marriage in your life
PROPHETIC WORD FOR TODAY: Your marital journey shall not be satanically diverted, in the name of Jesus.
Marriage is a holy union, a living symbol, a precious relationship that needs tender and self-sacriﬁcing care. It is God’s idea and not a derivative of any culture. It is a gift from God to man and it has three basic aspects:
First, the man leaves his parents, and in a public act, pledges himself to his wife.
Second, the man and woman are joined together by taking responsibility for each other’s welfare and by loving the partner above all others. In this context, love is given a richer and more interesting meaning. L stands for loyalty to each other. O stands for openness to each other. V stands for vocalising appreciation to each other and E stands for encouragement to each other.
Third, the two become one ﬂesh in the intimacy and commitment to the wonderful union which is reserved for marriage. By doing the foregoing, marriage provides the needed fellowship, comfort, companionship and partnership. It is one of God’s methods to keep men and women free from fornication and immorality.
With very few exceptions, most men and women are to marry. These exceptions are to receive God’s guidance and are not to be the product of infantile decisions, misguided initiations, faithless consecration (Gen. 2:18-20, 22-24; Matthew 19:4-5). Marriage is part of God’s plan to raise the Christian family. But the believer is not to go searching for a wife or husband without God’s guidance, neither is he or she to resort to an abominable method of sampling or picking and choosing.
The Bible reveals this truth in Gen. 2:18, “And the Lord said “It is not good that the man should be alone; I will make him a help meet for him.” God seems to be saying, “I am not going to allow the man to choose for himself.” In Gen. 2:22, the Bible afﬁrms, “And the rib, which the Lord God had taken from man, made he a woman and brought her unto him.”
Beloved, you need to wait on God and get His guidance on important steps to be taken concerning your marriage.
1) Holy Spirit, come and dwell in Your fullness in my home, in the name of Jesus Christ.
2) My marriage shall fulfil God’s purposes, in the name of Jesus Christ.
3) Agents of darkness reporting my marriage to satan, die, in the name of Jesus Christ.
4) My marriage shall not follow the evil pattern of my ancestors, in the name of Jesus.
5. The end of my marital life shall be better than the beginning, in the name of Jesus Christ.
6. Wolves attacking Christian homes, you shall not prosper in my home, in the name of Jesus Christ.
7. Holy Spirit, direct the steps of my marital life, in the name of Jesus Christ
