How To Be There for Each Other

How To Be There for Each Other

It is often said that a friend in need is a friend indeed. The value of friendship is known in hard and tough times. Nothing is as soothing as when a friend speaks to you in your down moments. When his or her words are like cold water to a thirsty soul. If the effect of a friend could be that felt, how much more is the effect of a spouse. Of course, our spouse is supposed to be our best friend with who we are vulnerable, with who we can share the joy and the privilege of being naked…

How To keep Love Ablaze In Our Marriage

How To keep Love Ablaze In Our Marriage

Before we can talk of keeping love ablaze, we have to talk of couples living true to their covenant responsibilities. First, we should know that our marriages have certain mandate in the heart of God to fulfill. And here’s a second offense: You fill the place of worship with your whining and sniveling because you don’t get what you want from God. Do you know why? Simple. Because God was there as a witness when you spoke your marriage vows to your young bride, and now you’ve broken those vows, broken the faith-bond with your vowed companion, your covenant wife.…

Ten Things That Keep Couples Together

Have you seen couples married for over 15 years? One thing that strikes you is that they begin to look alike. There's just something that makes them closer and begins to look alike.

I guess they truly become one flesh in the real sense of the word. The truth is that, if you want to remain close and knitted together, there are some things you…

You don't like things out of order. You feel the compulsion to fix your spouse. They have to be in a certain way. Eat in a certain way, laugh a certain way, or talk in a certain way.  Oga, free yourself! You are not the Holy Ghost. You cannot change anybody so don't kill yourself trying. You are sensitive. If things don't go the way you…

How To Maintain The Spiritual Glow As A Couple

How To Maintain The Spiritual Glow As A Couple

One of the most difficult things to do is to try and maintain the spiritual glow now that you are married. Before marriage, my husband would read about 40 chapters of the bible, pray in tongues for hours and practice the presence of God. Apart from the fact that he is a pastor and must study and pray, all those times given to reading 40 chapters are no longer there. When you are a married couple your time just seemed to be shared. It is no longer your time. The home is there, the kids are there to take care,…

How To Receive A Happy Marriage

Many of us have some unpleasant things going on in our marriages. We may have been praying for a long time for God to answer our prayers. We may be frustrated about God not answering our prayers.

In the Beginning, It was Not So – Part 2

In the Beginning, It was Not So – Part 2

So today, let's ask ourselves what did God say about our marriage? Do we see anything in our marriage right now that is not meant to be so? Are there things in our marriage that are aberration to what God said in the beginning? Hear what is written concerning you and your marriage from the beginning: And the Lord God said, It is not good that the man should be alone; I will make him an help meet for him.  Therefore shall a man leave his father and his mother, and shall cleave unto his wife: and they shall be…

In The Beginning, It Was Not So

In The Beginning, It Was Not So

This is a particular statement "In the beginning, it was not so" was declared by Jesus Christ our Lord, when He was asked if husbands could put away their wives, treat them anyhow, or not be compassionate to them. He saith unto them, Moses because of the hardness of your hearts suffered you to put away your wives: but from the beginning it was not so. Matthew 19:8 KJV Jesus was and is qualified to talk about the beginning because He was there at the beginning of all things. He was there when the heavens and the earth were being…

How To Apply Your Faith In Marriage

How To Apply Your Faith In Marriage

The message of faith is fast giving way to other popular messages especially now. I think in my own opinion that we heard more 'how to live by faith' messages than we do now, yet, it comes by hearing and hearing by the word of God. As a single lady when I was in the university, we were taught how to trust and believe God for stuff. Then we listened to Papa Kenneth Hagin, the Copelands, Creflo and Taffi Dollars, Jerry Savel, Jesse Duplantis, Bishop Oyedepo, and a host of others. We saw living by faith as a necessity and…

The Power Of Forgiveness In Marriage

The Power Of Forgiveness In Marriage

Marriage is the place where you will have to come to terms with the practicality of forgiveness. In other relationships, forgiveness is also essential but it may not be as that of marriage. In marriage, you will have to forgive for the relationship to be healed. You and your spouse cannot avoid each other. You live together, have children together, for the sake of peace and progress, forgiveness is very necessary. The standard of the Word of God is so high. That's why it is a narrow road that leads to heaven. The Bible does not mince words when we…
