COUPLES – Men, Tend Your Garden

The word ‘blossom’ creates a picture of a fruit tree having flowers. It depicts a season when the plant has grown, increased, and now bears flowers, showing it will soon bear fruit.

A lady is always associated with ‘blossom’, ‘flower’, ‘fruitful’, which depicts their ability to procreate and of course, the beauty they possess.

‘Thy wife shall be as a fruitful vine by the sides of thine house and your children like olive plants round about your table’. –Psalms 128:3

The scripture today is about a wife becoming a fruitful vine. The vine is an interesting plant. It is a twining; coiling tender plant that produces grapes used for wine.

It is interesting to know that a tender plant that needs support eventually produces the all-important grapes used for wine. You do not want to joke with wine. It is served at parties, offered to dignitaries, it is medicinal, it shows prosperity, it makes merry and it is always found during joyous occasions.

As a man, the lady you are married to has great potentials but you as the vinedresser or gardener have the responsibility of bringing out the best in her.

Now read this carefully. You will never find a perfect woman or wife. God will always give you a raw material, and you as her head and crown can develop her into what God wants for her by the instrumentality of God’s word, your love for her, a lot of patience, and a lot of prayers.

Am I shifting the ladies’ responsibility of productivity to the guys?

No. I am only saying that there is an environment you can create for your wife that will cause her to blossom, be more fruitful and maximize her potential.

Remember whatever she becomes, she will still be ‘by the sides of thine house’. That side does not mean ‘hidden’ or in a corner, it means right at the door. She occupies a conspicuous part of your life.

Married men, know that your wives are your precious asset. Accept her, love her and be determined to help her blossom.

Yes, she might be like a wild, unfruitful olive vine, but ask God to help you. God anointed you as a husband to make your wife blossom. You can do it by God’s grace if you trust and seek his help.

Dear wives, please submit to the leadership role of your husband. God anointed him for you so you can blossom. Until you are submitted to him, you will not be all you can be, your full capacity. Your submission to him is a lot of wisdom because that is when you can truly blossom.

I know some of you might be hurt and bitter over issues in the past, and you are rightly justified to feel so, but remaining in that state will worsen things and slow you down.

Don’t close up your spirits on your husband, forgive again and again and ask the Holy Spirit to help you. Don’t give up; rather, keep on trusting God for the best.

Don’t try to retaliate by opening yourself up to affairs. That will usher in more demons to afflict your home.

Always remember this, the wisdom you need to resolve the present issue lies with God.

I pray for your home this day that God will surround you with His love, you will blossom in Jesus name. You will burst forth with the full manifestation of your gifting in Jesus name.

Men, receive grace and wisdom to be the best that God has called you to be over your wife and your home!

CONFESSION FOR THE DAY
I am like a fruitful vine beside my husband’s house.

Father, I receive help to be all you desire me to be.

THOUGHT FOR THE DAY
Thy wife shall be like a fruitful vine by the sides of thine house’ Psalms 128:3

My Children Are As A Well Nurtured Garden

My Children Are As A Well Nurtured Garden

Reading Time: < 1 minute

One thing we can equate the growth of our children to is that of a garden. My Children are as a well nurtured garden.

The bible tells us that;

May our sons in their youth be like plants full grown, our daughters like corner pillars cut for the structure of a palace;

Psalms 144:12 (ESV)

A well-nurtured garden is always pleasant to look at or to relax in, but no one will desire to stay in an untidy garden. A garden is not left all by itself to be well nurtured, it takes a conscious effort.

Likewise, for our children, we must work towards nurturing them by teaching them the word of God, praying for them, and believing in God to become what he has created them to be.

We should always pray that our children will be strong and straight and pointed toward heaven. Not dwarfed by bad habits or foolish choices, not choked out by the weeds of the world, but they will be of visible character who stands alone, strong enough to withstand the storms of life.

Also pray that God grants them visible strength, godly character, and the beauty of full development.

Prayer:
Oh Lord, cause my children to be as healthy as a well-nurtured garden; Amen

Action plan:
Read and study more of God’s word

Declaration:
My children are blessed to flourish at an early age so that they bring forth the good fruit of godly character.

How To Tend Your Marriage As Couples

How To Tend Your Marriage As Couples

Reading Time: < 1 minute

Yesterday, we started on the topic “How to tend your marriage” and we talked about one major way to make your marriage enjoyable. That is, to know the difference between a garden and a farm.

Our marriage should be viewed as a garden, not a farmland.

Below are few ways we can tend our marriage.

1. First discover the type of person your spouse is. Is your marriage a garden or a farm land?

2. This discovery has to be done by both of you discussing it.

3. Know what your partner requires you to make your marriage work.

4. Set out to learn about these requirements.

5. Never assume you know all it takes to make your marriage work.

6. Be focused on making it work.

7. Be ready and humble enough to learn.

8. Always take your spouse along and check with each other if you are making progress.
For example, the proof you are on the right track is when you see the flowers in your garden blossom.

9. Don’t stop doing those things that produced the results.

10. Master the technique and do it over and over again, till it becomes part of you.

God bless your marriage.

Hey Couples, Tend Your Marriage

Hey Couples, Tend Your Marriage

Reading Time: 2 minutes

Couples, Tend Your Marriage. I like to view marriage as a garden. Your marriage needs time, attention, care, being sensitive and gentle, and above all skill and patience. No matter what is planted in your garden, whether vegetables or flowers, it requires your attention. If you are not ready to give your garden time and attention, don’t bother planting a garden.

You must enjoy and love being around your garden for it to blossom. You can not treat your garden like you do farmland where a lot of farming is allowed. A garden is a personal assignment. You give it the time and attention it requires.

Never use the same principle you use in working the farmland on your garden. It won’t work because they are totally different. Many couples are making this mistake. They love the beauty of flowers but want to apply the method they use in planting cassava.

For your cassava, just make a heap, cut your cassava stem, stick it into the soil and you can go to sleep for the next several weeks. Your cassava does not need any special attention or focus. But not so with your garden.

You know sometimes, I wonder why, some marriages don’t reach their full potential despite the good heart of the couples. Some of them might be anointed. I heard pastor Benny Hinn, a man of God I so much love and respect said the main reason for his divorce was that he didn’t give the marriage the needed attention. Thank Gracious God they are beautifully restored now and doing very well.

I can not but wonder why? how? I guess God is so much principled that He will honor His word. The principle you work is what will work for you. Sometimes we need to slow down and give the needed attention our marriage requires. There is no point wishing your spouse were a ‘cassava’, if your spouse is a ‘rose flower’.

You better change your techniques and tools. If your spouse is a ‘rose flower’, get your hand gloves, hand trowel, watering can and get to work. You may not sweat it out like in the farm but you will be required to gently tend your garden. Each requires different skill.

However, if you stubbornly stick to the farming method you prefer you will not get the best of it.

Tomorrow, I will show us how we can tend our marriages.

God bless our marriage.
