There are several benefits of honouring God scattered all over the scriptures and there are several ways to do so.
There exists a relationship between honouring God and making your marriage work.
When you honour God, you are signing up for His favour and mercy to work for you in your marriage and every way. In the same vein, when you dishonor God, things are going to get really tough, because scriptures says the ways of a transgressor are hard.
How then do you honour God in marriage? That is our focus this morning.
One of the ways you do so is by daily reading, studying and meditating on God’s word. Looks so simple right? That’s what you need that for your marital health. Inculcate it to your daily routine. Have it regimented into your life and do it daily. Start your day with God. That is simply honouring God!
If you are confused in your marriage, the panacea is God’s word. It will cause light to shine over your soul. It will give you direction and lead you in the right path.
If your marriage is going through troubled times, the answer is in God’s word. The answer is not in weeping profusely or looking for pity parties. The answer is not in withdrawing from your spouse. It is not in getting depressed; rather it is in getting energized from God’s word!
Do you know that by merely reading and meditating on God’s word daily, you can be kept from the trap of adultery?
Prov 2:10-17 NIV
10 For wisdom will enter your heart, and knowledge will be pleasant to your soul.
11 Discretion will protect you, and understanding will guard you.
12 Wisdom will save you from the ways of wicked men, from men whose words are perverse,
13 who have left the straight paths to walk in dark ways,
14 who delight in doing wrong and rejoice in the perverseness of evil,
15 whose paths are crooked and who are devious in their ways.
16 Wisdom will save you also from the adulterous woman, from the wayward woman with her seductive words,
17 who has left the partner of her youth and ignored the covenant she made before God.
May God grant you more understanding.
Your marriage will not hit the rocks.
