How Couples Can Respond To God’s Training

How Couples Can Respond To God’s Training
Reading Time: 2 minutes

In today’s devotional, we’re looking at how we as couples can respond to God’s training. Marriage is an institution, the first institution God created.

In institutions, we go to learn. In effect, marriage is a school, a major one at that.

It is probably the only institution where you get your certificate before the learning begins. On the wedding day, you get to receive your wedding certificate, and then the real school begins.

Especially as it concerns male and female differences, a lot of couples are in for a rude shock.

There will be mistakes that are done in marriage as a result of our opinions, as a result of habits, as a result of mindsets.

God in His wisdom, will start dislodging those mindsets through various circumstances and happenstances.

Your best bet will be to listen and learn from what God is trying to say.

For you to hear God and learn from the discipline, you need to have an understanding that God’s discipline is not punishment, but training.

When you see it as training, then the discipline of God becomes effective in your life.

See what the Bible says

It’s the child he loves that he disciplines; the child he embraces, he also corrects. God is educating you; that’s why you must never drop out. He’s treating you as dear children. This trouble you’re in isn’t punishment; it’s training,

Heb 12:6 – 7 (MSG)

I love what it says. The one that God loves is the one that He disciplines. And the Message Translation says God is simply educating you.

This education will advance your marriage and give you the needed lessons to move higher in your marriage.

Don’t drop out of it. Stay with it and learn all you can learn.

As you cooperate with God’s discipline as husband and wife, you will see your marriage get better in God and fulfilling God’s plan for you as a couple.
