I had an encounter with God on March 1st, 2015 in Ilorin Kwara state, North-Central Nigeria. I went for the wedding of one of my beloved church members, and as I entered my hotel room, God spoke to me saying, “The Gospel of Marriage”. I said wow! “The Gospel of Marriage”? He said yes. In that brief encounter, God re-affirmed that marriage is gospel, which means good news. No wonder the bible says that “whoso ever findeth a wife findeth a good thing and obtaineth favour of the Lord”, (Proverbs 18:22).
Also the bible says that “marriage is honourable in all” (Hebrew 13:4). So God’s plan and purpose for our marriage is intended for our good. God in performing the first marriage said it is not good for a man to be alone, I will make him a help meet for him (Genesis 2:18).
So why do we have in our midst many strange and discomforting marriages? Why is the divorce rate all over the world rising? It is simply because the love of many has waxed cold (Matthew 24:12), but as believers, we have goodly heritage, (Psalm 16:6). There are people today who enjoy super peaceful, loving and successful marriages.
It is important not to allow the devil to sow a seed of deceit in you to make you believe that every marriage is the same and so are suffering.
The intention of this blog is to help those who are enjoying their marriages to enjoy it better, and help others who are not to turn back and fulfil their God ordained purpose and plan for their marriages. Please come along with me as we embark on this journey because it is my conviction that God has ordained every believer to enjoy his/her marriage. (1 Peter 2:9).
At the moment, I am reading a book titled “Releasing your Potentials” by Dr. Miles Munroe, and look at what he said;
“Over the years, I have come to realise that no excuse can be given to justify the destruction of the seed of potential that God placed within you. You can be the man or woman you were born to be. You can accomplish the vision you saw. You can build that business you planned. You can develop that school you imagine. You are the only one who can stop you”.
I will boldly add to that to say that you can build the marriage/home you desire, by taking personal responsibility. It’s up to you.
