Why I Can’t Afford To Fail God In Marriage – Part 2

Why I Can’t Afford To Fail God In Marriage – Part 2

Reading Time: 3 minutes

COUPLES –

Our part in the marriage covenant is to obey every instruction in the word of God. This should be your resolve, that your marriage before God is obeying Ephesians 5: 22-26, whether you feel like obeying or not, is not the issue. See what it says;

For wives, this means submit to your husbands as to the Lord. For a husband is the head of his wife as Christ is the head of the church. He is the Savior of his body, the church. As the church submits to Christ, so you wives should submit to your husbands in everything. For husbands, this means love your wives, just as Christ loved the church. He gave up his life for her to make her holy and clean, washed by the cleansing of God’s word. –Ephesians 5:22-26 (NLT)

We also despise whatever we feel or think, which keeps us from obeying the scripture above, just as Jesus despised the shame of the cross. We do this by keeping our eyes on Jesus, the champion who initiates and perfects our faith. Because of the joy awaiting him, he endured the cross, disregarding its shame. Now he is seated in the place of honor beside God’s throne. Necessity is laid on us to carry our cross of fulfilling our marriage covenant.

The Bible says;

If you refuse to take up your cross and follow me, you are not worthy of being mine. –Matthew 10:38 (NLT)

We become worthy of the sacrifice of Jesus when we carry our cross daily and follow Jesus. We carry our cross by obeying Him despite how or what we feel like or don’t feel like doing to and for our spouse.

Our marriage is a responsibility that we must not fail to fulfill, it is spelled out in Ephesians 5: 22-26. What husbands should focus on doing as well as what wives should focus on doing, each party must focus on his/her part of the deal.

We owe our spouse to appropriately respond to our part in our covenant with them. To make sure we provide a conducive environment that will not leave our spouse vulnerable to the attacks and lies of the devil.

We owe our spouses to conduct ourselves in such a way that makes them comfortable in our presence; we do this by being submissive, loving, caring, forgiving, available, etc.

We owe our spouses to be covenant partners in all ways and all aspects of our lives and existence, whether spiritual, in the soul realm, or physically.

We owe our spouses to surround them so that we shut the door against the senseless and foolish sin of adultery and every form of emotional affairs.

I pray God grants us understanding.

God bless your marriage.

Why I Can’t Afford To Fail God in Marriage

Why I Can’t Afford To Fail God in Marriage

Reading Time: 2 minutes

COUPLES-

Apart from the fact that marriage is a wonderful relationship with the one you love, there is also the responsibility part. There is something always there to remind us of this truth. Yet for some of us, our flesh, stubborn self, ego, revenge, tit for tat, strife, and unforgiving spirit keep us constantly on loggerheads with our spouse.

When you view your marriage from another perspective, from the perspective of Covenant, it will change the way you approach your marriage.

My husband, during one of our midweek services, taught along this line. It was such a blessing and it changed my perspective about my marriage forever.

God is cutting a new covenant with His people. To God, our marriage is about the covenant and not just about our spouse.

And I will give them one heart and one purpose: to worship me forever, for their own good and for the good of all their descendants. And I will make an everlasting covenant with them: I will never stop doing good for them. I will put a desire in their hearts to worship me, and they will never leave me. I will find joy doing good for them and will faithfully and wholeheartedly replant them in this land. –Jeremiah 32:39 – 41 (NLT)

More so, God was in Christ when He cut a new covenant with us by His blood.  Jesus became both the offering and the offerer when He had to fulfill the demands of the law to set us free from death and its consequences. Jesus took the cross, suffered great agony, and endured such shame and pain that He might see us free.

When you begin to see your marriage as a vital part of you, and that Jesus paid the price for you, you will have no choice but to sit up.

Just like the Israelites, Pharaoh wanted to negotiate them out of taking their children, livestock, and all that belonged to them. They were wise enough to know that God was giving them a total and complete deliverance that include all they had.

Your marriage to God is all about the covenant. There is a higher purpose; there is a more important agenda in the father’s heart, which is total deliverance.

Jesus didn’t just die for our spirits not to be lost in hell. He died for everything about our lives; our health, children, marriage, finances, mental health, emotional life, everything.

We owe God to respond back in gratitude, faithfulness, and obedience to our part of the covenant.

CONFESSION FOR THE DAY:
I will not fail God and my Spouse, I keep the covenant of marriage, and I am a good wife/ husband

Practical Ways To Experiencing Peace In Marriage

Practical Ways To Experiencing Peace In Marriage

Reading Time: 2 minutes

Experiencing peace in marriage is priceless. You don’t want to know what some other couples experience when they have no peace.

Peace is our birthright as believers in Christ. It is part of the things Jesus bequeathed us with. The peace He gave us is all-round peace. Not some peace in the workplace and crisis at home with the children and lack of peace in your health. No, He died to give us all-round peace.

But he was wounded for our transgressions, he was bruised for our iniquities: the chastisement of our peace was upon him; and with his stripes we are healed. – Isa 53:5 

Jesus actually paid the price for us to experience peace. If you are not experiencing peace in any area of your life, the devil is cheating you out of what belongs to you.

Jesus already paid the price for your peace. He was chastised for you to experience peace. You are not just to hear about peace but experience it in your life and marriage.

Peace I leave with you, my peace I give unto you: not as the world giveth, give I unto you. Let not your heart be troubled, neither let it be afraid. – Joh 14:27 

Did you miss out on yesterday’s devotional, we’ve got you covered kindly go HERE. For KHC video Devotionals kindly go HERE

We can claim the peace of Jesus. You can experience peace with your in-laws, peace with your money, peace in your neighborhood, all-round peace.

Let no man trouble me for I bear in my bodies the marks of the Lord Jesus Christ, Paul said.

Here are five ways to experience peace

1.  Know what Jesus has done for you by His shed blood on the cross.

2.  Learn of these truths and begin to appropriate them. You can’t afford to be lazy about it. You have to search scriptures diligently.

3. Begin to confess that which you discovered from scriptures

4. Begin to take practical steps to enjoy peace in every area of your life.

5. Be a person of peace. Avoid being quarrelsome. Stop being overly aggressive, hot-tempered. Avoid jumping to conclusions on matters.

God help us to experience all-round peace this year in Jesus name

God bless our marriage

CONFESSION FOR THE DAY
I experience all round peace in my marriage.

PRAYER FOR THE DAY
Pray against everything that wants to steal your peace

THOUGHT FOR THE DAY
Peace I leave with you, my peace I give unto you: not as the world giveth, give I unto you. Let not your heart be troubled, neither let it be afraid. – Joh 14:27 

ACTION PLAN FOR THE DAY
Be a person of peace

Why I can’t Afford To Fail God or My Spouse in Marriage

Why I can’t Afford To Fail God or My Spouse in Marriage

Reading Time: 4 minutes

You can’t afford to fail God or your spouse in your marriage. Apart from the fact that marriage is a wonderful relationship with the one you love, there is also the responsibility part. There is something always there to remind us of his truth. Yet for some of us our flesh, stubborn self, ego, revenge, the taste of tit for tat, strife, unforgiveness keeps us constantly with our spouse, like a mosquito always thirsty for blood.

When you view your marriage from another perspective, from the perspective of Covenant, it will change the way we view your marriage.

My husband, during our midweek service, taught along this line. It was such a blessing and it changed my perspective about my marriage forever. God is cutting a new covenant with His people. To God, our marriage is about the covenant and not just about our spouse.

And I will give them one heart and one purpose: to worship me forever, for their own good and for the good of all their descendants. And I will make an everlasting covenant with them: I will never stop doing good for them. I will put a desire in their hearts to worship me, and they will never leave me. I will find joy doing good for them and will faithfully and wholeheartedly replant them in this land. Jeremiah 32:39 – 41 NLT

When He had to fulfill the demands of the law to set us free from death and its consequences. Jesus took the cross, suffered great agony, endured such shame and pain that He might see us free.

When you begin to see your marriage as a vital art of you, that Jesus paid the price for you will sit up.

Just like the Israelites, Pharaoh wanted to negotiate them out of taking their children, livestock and all that belong to them. They were wise enough to know that God was giving them a total and complete deliverance that includes all they have.

Your marriage to God is all about the covenant. There is a higher purpose, there is a more important agenda in the father’s heart. Which is total deliverance.

Jesus didn’t just die for our spirit not to be lost in hell. He died for everything about our lives. Our health, children, marriage, finances, mental health, emotional life, everything.

We owe God to respond back in gratitude, faithfulness and obedience to our part of the covenant. Our part is to obey every instruction in the word.

For wives, this means submit to your husbands as to the Lord. For a husband is the head of his wife as Christ is the head of the church. He is the Savior of his body, the church.

That Jesus also despise the shame. We do this by keeping our eyes on Jesus, the champion who initiates and perfects our faith. Because of the joy awaiting him, he endured the cross, disregarding its shame. Now he is seated in the place of honor beside God’s throne. Hebrews 12:2 NLT

Necessity is laid on is to carry our cross of fulfilling our marriage covenant.

We owe our spouses to be covenant partners in all ways and all aspects of our lives and existence. Whether spiritual, in the soulish realm, and physically.

But the man who commits adultery is an utter fool, for he destroys himself. He will be wounded and disgraced. His shame will never be erased. Proverbs 6:32 – 33 NLT

We owe our spouses to surround them so that we shut the door against the senseless and foolish sin of adultery and every form of emotional affairs.

May God grant us understanding.

God bless your marriage.
