As couples, we are not meant to do marriage without God. He instituted marriage and there’s a picture in His heart, there is a purpose in His heart that needs to be accomplished.

The day you start neglecting God and treating His word with contempt is the day you begin to experience hardship in your marriage.

God’s word is His covenant with us ratified in the blood of Jesus. The word contains all the covenant terms and conditions.

All the requirements of the covenant must be satisfied. When we fulfill our part of the covenant, we automatically enjoy the blessing of the covenant.

That is why the scriptures say I have hidden your word in my heart that I may not sin against you.

Behold, the days come, saith the Lord , that I will make a new covenant with the house of Israel, and with the house of Judah:  Not according to the covenant that I made with their fathers in the day that I took them by the hand to bring them out of the land of Egypt; which my covenant they brake, although I was an husband unto them, saith the Lord :  But this shall be the covenant that I will make with the house of Israel; After those days, saith the Lord , I will put my law in their inward parts, and write it in their hearts; and will be their God, and they shall be my people. –Jeremiah 31:31 – 33 (KJV)

To enjoy the covenant blessings of marriage, you have to have respect for the word of God. Not only respect it but follow it to the letter.

Your obedience becomes your proof of respect. So Bible says;                                            

Husbands love your wives and wives submit to your own husbands. –Ephesians 5: 23 – 29 (KJV)

That’s the covenant requirement, whether it is convenient or not you have to obey and do just that.

That’s having respect unto the covenant. Jesus had to do the covenant requirement even though it wasn’t easy.

You now see why God will not shift grounds. He is a God of covenant, not a sentimental God.

If He could turn His back on Jesus when He was on the cross because He cannot behold sin and because He was carrying the sin of the whole world, God will turn His back on anyone who treats His covenant with contempt.

Let’s begin to respect the covenant God has with us. Let’s begin to do what the word says despite what our body wants or what our flesh is saying.

God grant us more understanding.

God bless your marriage.

CONFESSION FOR THE DAY                                                                  
I honour God’s word and covenant in my life, and marriage

Father in Jesus name, strengthen me to honour your covenant all the days of my life.

Husbands love your wives and wives submit to your own husbands. –Ephesians 5: 23 – 29 (KJV)
