Timely Reminder For All Married – Part 2

Timely Reminder For All Married – Part 2

Reading Time: 2 minutes

COUPLES –

3. Never allow anybody to come and live with you in the house without the full agreement of your spouse. If your spouse is not in support, your attempt to help others can be at the expense of your marriage and it can drive you apart.

Many marriages are under tremendous pressures because the wife is not only taking care of her husband but several siblings at a time. Issue will necessarily come out of this.

4. Never oppose your spouse openly. Don’t build walls against yourself. If you must correct your spouse, don’t do it in the presence of his friends and colleagues, you might end up adding more to the issue.

However, you can always have a confidant with whom both of you agree you can discuss with, because there are times you really need to pour your hearts out.

5. Never get close to others other than your spouse. Be your spouse’s friend and never allow anybody to come in between you.

There are Delialahs, Jezebels, Amnons, Jonadabs and so on. The moment you know, and you always know that you are getting up close and emotional to someone apart from your spouse, cut it off, or else you will soon be in serious problems. The moment you can hide things from your spouse, it is the beginning of problems.

The moment you can discuss your spouse with colleagues and they discuss theirs with you, you are going too far. The devil will set a trap. Avoid distractions.

May God bless your marriage.

CONFESSION FOR THE DAY
My spouse is second to none but God.

PRAYER FOR THE DAY
Lord, teach us to be a skillful couple in loving you and loving ourselves

THOUGHT FOR THE DAY
2Co 2:11 MSG After all, we don’t want to unwittingly give Satan an opening for yet more mischief–we’re not oblivious to his sly ways!

ACTION PLAN FOR THE DAY
Have a hearty discussion with your spouse on how you can love each other better.

BIBLE READING FOR THE DAY
Gen 41-42

Timely Reminder For All Married

Timely Reminder For All Married

Reading Time: 2 minutes

COUPLES –

One man was avidly studying his wedding certificate for hours. Upon being asked why he said he was looking for the expiry date! Sorry marriage does not expire, there is no reverse gear.

Another man was watching his wedding tape, but this time backward! He saw himself remove the ring, walked out of the church entered his car, and zoomed off. He wished he could do that in real life, but sorry! Marriage is a haven, not an oven. Marriage is to be enjoyed and not endured. There is tremendous power in marriage as a couple.

The devil recognizes this power at your disposal as a married couple. That is why his intention is to throw a monkey wrench at your stuff. There are some precautions you can take in order to ensure that you are one with your spouse and that the power of agreement is not broken.

The Christian life is not hard to live, in fact, it is when you don’t follow God that things get messed up and complicated. That is why Jesus Christ said his yoke is easy, learn about it, it is easier that way.

1. If you want a successful marriage, never insult or abuse your spouse on account of someone else. Preserve your marriage by respecting your spouse inside and outside. This is because, for men, respect is a major issue. Every man is egocentric, although excessive egocentricity is not good.

2. Never empower others against your spouse. Don’t shoot yourself in the leg. You are one in marriage, and that is how God sees it. Support your spouse always.

CONFESSION FOR THE DAY
I will invest in my marriage. My spouse is second to none but God

PRAYER FOR THE DAY
Lord, teach us to be a skillful couple in loving you and loving ourselves

THOUGHT FOR THE DAY
2Co 2:11 MSG After all, we don’t want to unwittingly give Satan an opening for yet more mischief–we’re not oblivious to his sly ways!

ACTION PLAN FOR THE DAY
Have a hearty discussion with your spouse on how you can love each other better.

Few Things Every Couple Must Hold Dear

Few Things Every Couple Must Hold Dear

Reading Time: 2 minutes

There are some things every couple must not joke with in the marriage. They must constantly ensure these things are present in their marriage no matter what happens.

Marriage is for two mature people that are whole. Each person brings his or her wholeness to the marriage to form a whole marriage.

In the natural, it is half plus half that makes whole but in a godly marriage, the equation is different. It is whole plus whole that makes one or whole. In fact, it is whole plus whole plus God that makes a whole entity in marriage.

So let’s look into these few things.

1. Agreement

Do two walk together except they make an appointment and have agreed? – Amo 3:3 

There must be an agreement between the couple. They must ensure they always come to a place of agreement. It takes a lot of maturity, respect, and understanding to do that.

I remember when my husband first told me we will be praying online every day 5:30 am to 6:00 am. On that first morning, my body wanted to resist. I had to put my body under and be in agreement for us to do the will of God. And now my body clock has adjusted.

In such a way, we must be in agreement so we can achieve great feats in our lives.

2.  Effective Communication

Your relationship started in the first place because you were able to effectively communicate to your lady that you love her and that you want her to marry you. You made your intentions known to her.

This communication must be an essential tool throughout your marriage and you must be skillful in using it.

Both men and women need to be skillful in communicating. Timing is also important in communication. There are certain times to say certain things. There is the best time when your husband will listen to what you have to say.

There is also the ‘how’, talking about the presentation of what you have to say. There is always a better way to arrange your points, especially if your husband is pretty smart, intelligent, and not too patient.  You want to present the most important issues first and sandwich it with accolades.

God bless our marriage

CONFESSION FOR THE DAY
I am in agreement with my spouse in all areas.

PRAYER FOR THE DAY
Lord, teach me to be supportive of my spouse in Jesus name.

THOUGHT FOR THE DAY
I exhort therefore, that, first of all, supplications, prayers, intercessions, and giving of thanks, be made for all men; 1Ti 2:1

ACTION PLAN FOR THE DAY
Begin to look at areas you can give your support and begin to give it.

BIBLE READING FOR THE DAY
1Tim 3

In-Laws: How To Handle Troublesome Ones

In-Laws: How To Handle Troublesome Ones

Reading Time: 2 minutes

The issue of in-laws is a very important one. If you have in-laws and they live in the town where you live, proximity should be handled with care.

In laws ought to wish their children the best at least to the best of their knowledge.

I believe it is best before marriage to prepare your heart to accommodate your in-laws in a cordial relationship. It is also good to accept them for who they are.

I am so blessed, when it comes to my in laws. My father, brother and sisters in law are so warm, I couldn’t have asked for anything more.

Both in laws live in another town from us and it’s a blessing (although it has its own disadvantages).

So when some of our married couples begin to say their issues about in-laws I just wonder. Nonetheless, it’s an issue that affects our home and marriage and so has to be addressed.

Here are some helpful hints.

1. It is wrong to discuss your spouse with your parents and in-laws.

2. Getting in touch and staying in touch has to be done by the couple at both ends.

3. If an in-law has to stay with you, it has to be your joint consent. If your spouse is not in agreement, you have to pray about it. Until there is consent, don’t go ahead.

4. If your in-laws need financial support (brother or sister) you should decide together how much you will give.

5. It is your responsibility to send financial support to your parents and in-laws every month or otherwise as the case may be.

6. In the event that a sick parent or in-law has to stay with you, you must give your wife all the support she needs, emotional, physical and financial. Make her comfortable taking care of them.

7. Don’t let any in-law come in between you. You are married and nothing should change that.

8. In case you are parents in waiting, don’t allow the pressures of your in laws to tear you apart.

9. No one should encroach on your privacy. Don’t allow or permit it. You are married to your spouse.

10. You must put your foot down when it comes to protecting your spouse. But you also need the wisdom of God. So make sure you pray for wisdom and God’s help.

CONFESSION FOR THE DAY
I have God’s wisdom

PRAYER FOR THE DAY
Pray that God strengthens you to make the right decisions

THOUGHT FOR THE DAY
Hosea 14:4
I will heal their backsliding, I will love them freely: for mine anger is turned away from him.

ACTION PLAN FOR THE DAY
Forgive all that hurt you

BIBLE READING FOR THE DAY
2nd Samuel 19 – 21
