What is the will of God in marriage? This indeed is a very important question to many whom are pondering about what marriage is, you see prayers about marriage is often not taken very seriously, and it is as important as anything else you can think of.
All you need is a wrong partner to self destruct, so why won’t you fervently pray about choosing your spouse?
A lot people hastily make up their minds to marry their partners not because of love, but because of their partners wealth, beauty, connections, body shape, etc. It is good to have a physical traits of reasons you love your partner, but that shouldn’t be the only traits you should look at, and you are not suppose to be the only one to decide, you need to ask for God’s divine guidance and interventions.
I have seen lots of stories when a partner had to file for divorce because the other partner lost their jobs, businesses or connections. It’s no news that some go into marriage because of what they are looking forward to achieve in the marriage or with their spouse, it is obvious that love cannot be said to be the foundation of such marriage, because in 1 Corinthians 13:7, says “Charity (love) beareth all things, believeth all things, hoped all things, endureth all things”. From this Bible verse, we can denotes the meaning been that, no matter what challenges any marriage might be facing, love will stand strong enough to make the spouses to endure all things.
HOW DO YOU INVOLVE GOD IN YOUR MARRIGE?
What determines a successful marriage is whether or not God is involve in the marriage, to get God involved in your marriage, you have to keep praying that the will of God be done in your marriage, and while praying in that manner, you must not have an idol in your mind, the “idol” been a woman or man that you are probably channeling the prayers to. Let the will of God become your will, and his desires for you becomes your desire.
Some people you go into partnership with can cajole you emotionally, some can trick you, some with high pretenses, hiding their most inner darkness just ensure they trap their partner into first marrying them. That is the reason why you have to allow God take you through the journey of finding a partner for yourself
I usually tell most people, that the partner you marry, can determine if you are going to Heaven or Hell, some can drag you to hell, while some can drag you to Heaven. Imagine marrying a partner that happens to turn you into a drug addict, angry monster, killer, etc, or a better that make sure you are mostly frustrated by their actions, words and deeds. To be honest marrying the right partner that will bring more light of Christ into your life is the best thing that can ever happen to you on Earth.
The Bible says, the blessings of God maketh rich and addeth no sorrow, applying that to marriage, simply means a God chosen partner will add no sorrow to you. Just have faith when you put trust on God, and he will help you, because he already know your good intentions towards finding the right partner, he knows how you hunger for righteousness
