Marriage is a powerful institution ordained by God to make one fulfill his/her divine assignment with maximum result to show for it. In marriage, we have to deliberately choose to make the marriage work.
In a nutshell, marriage is designed to help us get the work of our life done with less stress and maximum result/impact.
I hear someone saying “that is when you marry right”
Well, yes! That can only be so when you marry right, but one can marry right and still be deprived of the blessings and privileges he has access to when the right information is not given.
Ecclesiastes 4:9 – 11 MSG- It’s better to have a partner than go it alone. SHARE THE WORK, SHARE THE WEALTH. And if one falls down, the other helps, But if there’s no one to help, tough! Two in a bed warm each other. Alone, you shiver all night.
It saddens the heart to know or hear that some who got married in the church are not getting the best out of marriage. Not getting the best out of marriage is one of the plans of the devil for marriage.
This morning, it is my prayer that deliverance and restoration is granted to such marriages in Jesus name!
God’s plan was to make Adam’s work in the Garden of Eden simpler with far reaching results by giving Eve to him.
Gen. 2; 20b KJV but for Adam there was not found an help meet for him.
Marriage is still coated with the same plan if we do the requisite work that will get us the same result.
Eccl. 4:8-11(MSG) showed us what needs to be done. Share the work, share the wealth.
I remember while I was getting set for wedding, virtually everyone I met from my wife’s family (then my fiancé) was telling me I should take care of her (my wife). In my heart of heart, my unspoken reply was, “we’ll have to take care of each other”.
1. Share the Work: Virtually everything you (Husband & Wife) are faced with should be faced together.
Do not ‘over-flex’ your muscle when you have someone by you to help.
Do not over think the logic behind getting your wife or husband involved in all that you are faced with. The grace to help you get a faster and better result is on that man/woman.
Get your spouse involved in that prayer! You feel led to pray over certain issue as touching your growth, career, ministry or financial wise, be wise to get your spouse on board quickly so you do not have to spend longer time on what you can spend less time on.
2. Share the wealth: Having shared in getting the work done, it seems women do not allow anybody to push them aside when it comes to sharing the wealth. So I won’t over emphasize the necessity of sharing the wealth (results) that comes.
Please note, it is also not out of place for a man to get to share out of the wealth that gets in through the work invested with the wife and the same also applies to the woman.
I am not saying that there is no life without marriage, neither am I saying that one cannot get results in life without marriage, but I am saying the choice to marry should make our lives better.
Our lives shall indeed be better in Jesus name.
