What Marriage Is and What It’s Not

What Marriage Is and What It’s Not

Marriage is beautiful, but it can quickly be obscured by the challenges and pressures that come with it. Its intended purpose can quickly fizzle out if care is not taken. My discourse with couples this morning is taken from below short video. Watch it quickly before we proceed. https://youtu.be/hqOLwoI0Q_k The devil is a bad devil. He seeks to distract, and obscure the reality of what God intended! Your marital experience should be nothing short of fruitfulness. Fruit of the womb, fruit of the land, fruit from your substance and so on and so forth! Here is what God said: And…

Prerequisite For A Successful Marriage – Part 2

Prerequisite For A Successful Marriage – Part 2

The second thing that must be present in every marriage that will succeed has to do with communication. 2. Constant CommunicationA man was once asked what the three most important things in a marriage are. His response: 1. Communication
2. Communication3. Communication

 Do I agree? Yes, I fully do! When communication dies, assumptions, suspicions, lies and deception will take over. There is nothing as beautiful as a marriage where both parties can fully express themselves. Hear each other out! When a man talks, his goal may be a logical explanation, but when a woman talks, it is more than an explanation,…

Prerequisite For A Successful Marriage

Prerequisite For A Successful Marriage

There are a lot of things that must be put in place for a marriage to succeed. There are conscious and deliberate inputs that must be in place so that marriage can bring bliss and not blisters. Here are some of those things. 1. PrayersA family that prays together stays together. A husband and wife that pray together will overcome the flesh easily. Prayer protects, shields and connects you to your inheritance in God. As husband and wife, pray for one another rather than tear one another apart. Intercede for each other. What the devil wants is a tearing apart,…

A Good Heart Is Needed For A Good Marriage

A Good Heart Is Needed For A Good Marriage

What would make a man cheat on his wife? What on earth could that be? It is simply a bad heart, one devoid of conscience. What would make a wife cheat on her husband? It is the same thing. A bad heart, and additionally, deliberate seductive attires. Let’s take a look at the scriptures: And behold, there met him a woman, dressed as a harlot and sly and cunning of heart.

Few Points That Will Help Build Your Home

Few Points That Will Help Build Your Home

Not all homes are Christian homes. They may be born again, tongue-talking, and even bible reading believers. To have a Christian home depicts Christ as the head of the home, being at the center of it all, where He is the head of all decisions. What does it mean to be the head? It is not just a positional title, it is a functional post. The head talks about leadership. All other parts look up to it for their roles or actions to take. The head is the seat of power, of sight, thinking, hearing, smelling, mastication, of decision making,…

How To Have Victory In Marriage

How To Have Victory In Marriage

Yea, we often time want things to work 'sharp, sharp'. We are used to instant victory. Indomie noddles kind of thing. Even in natural things, nothing just happens. There are no instant millionaires. In a weight loss program, it is easier to gain weight than it is to lose it. You gain more calories by eating cakes, pastries, and ice cream. You will have to work out for hours and days to lose what you have gained. My point is, you cannot have an instant weight loss or anything for that matter. In the same way, we cannot expect instant…

Don’t Do These To Your Wife

Don’t Do These To Your Wife

1. Don’t ignore her needsWhen you ignore the most important needs of your wife over and over again, she is going to get hurt and eventually feel that you never loved her. This feeling can degenerate to a point where she comes up with an emotional defense, and the peak of that is closing her spirit. You see, in loving your wife, you have to do so in God’s term and her own terms and not in your own terms. This is basically because the needs of a man are miles apart from that of a woman. So, in meeting…
