Marriage mirrors God’s covenant love for us as in the union between Jesus and His church.
God’s purpose or intention for marriage is companionship that reflects His love.
God is not alone nor does He want us to be alone. Learn to live out the capacities God designed for you and bring them into your marriage.
Sacrificial relationship leads to deep and lasting love. It’s what makes marriage not easy, but safe.
Respect and appreciate each other with kindness and understanding.
We all have different gifts that we bring into relationship. No two marriages look alike. What’s good for one may not be good for another.
What matters are not external appearances, but rather heart issues.
Working out our life issues in a covenant relationship is the safest place for transformation.
No one will speak truth to you like your spouse.
Marriage is the crucible of life transformation.
Does your marriage mirror God’s love?
Culled from Just Jesus Devotional
God hates divorce! He hates it when we hurt, when our hearts are broken like a bird with broken wings and we can’t fly. Jesus wept when He heard Mary and Martha sorrowing over their brother Lazarus in John 11:33 When Jesus saw her weeping, and the Jews who had come along with her also weeping, he was deeply moved in spirit and troubled. 34 “Where have you laid him?” he asked. “Come and see, Lord,” they replied. 35 Jesus wept. 36 Then the Jews said, “See how he loved him!”
Every time you weep over the death of love in your marriage, Jesus Christ weeps too. He feels what you are feeling my friend. He sees your broken heart, dreams, distorted view, Jesus feels your pain! And, He wants to soothe you, to pour the oil of gladness upon your heart, to make you feel again and live an abundantly fulfilling life.
Prayer: Father, help me to meet up to the standard of the requirements of the new covenant, and bless me through it, in Jesus Name. Amen – Open Heavens Devotional
Shalom! Shalom! Shalom!
