WORK OUT YOUR MARRIAGE
No matter what your marriage is going through, you can bring the better dimension out of it if you and your spouse decide to work together. The problem is that most people are not prepared to pay the price and do the work required for their marriage to work.
Psalm 11:3 KJV
3 If the foundations be destroyed, what can the righteous do?
Hebrews 13:4 AMP
4 Marriage is to be held in honor among all [that is, regarded as something of great value], and the marriage bed undefiled [by immorality or by any sexual sin]; for God will judge the sexually immoral and adulterous.
One of the major reasons the work that you have to do in your marriage is difficult is that you entered the marriage in a way you should not have entered – through unscriptural exposures and experiences.
Many people have different solutions to the challenges in marriage. Some people say a woman will not learn until her husband brings another woman in, and so, such an ignorant man marries another wife and finds out that he has multiplied trouble. Then they tell him to have another one outside, and he finds out the problem remains the same. There are all kinds of things that people do in their bid to solve marital problems, but the only solution is to work out your marriage and fight for it.
1 Corinthians 13:4-7 AMP
4 Love endures with patience and serenity; love is kind and thoughtful and is not jealous or envious; love does not brag and is not proud or arrogant. 5 It is not rude; it is not self-seeking; it is not provoked [nor overly sensitive and easily angered]; it does not take into account a wrong endured. 6 It does not rejoice at injustice but rejoices with the truth [when right and truth prevail]. 7 Love bears all things [regardless of what comes], believes all things [looking for the best in each one], hopes all things [remaining steadfast during difficult times], endures all things [without weakening].
Find out what work you will do and what changes you will make in your marriage. The reason the work to do in marriage is difficult is because most couples that are facing challenges in their marriage entered into the union wrongly. You will have to ascertain the condition both of you were in before you got married so that you can both know the work that you will do.
There are seven categories of marriage:
- Two enemies married to each other.
- Two kids married to each other.
- Two neighbours married to each other.
- Two strangers married to each other.
- Two partners married to each other.
- Two friends married to each other.
- Two lovers married to each other.
You must find out which of the categories describes your marriage and begin to work at making it better. Do not enter into marriage as if it is a business deal in which the both of you will be using each other.
Ephesians 4:2-3 KJV
2 With all lowliness and meekness, with longsuffering, forbearing one another in love;
3 Endeavouring to keep the unity of the Spirit in the bond of peace.
You must identify the kind of changes that you want to take place in your marriage. There are some couples that are living as strangers trying to get to know each other, and some started as lovers, but they have become two enemies who hate each other. Identify what category your marriage falls under and be determined to work at making it better with the help of the Holy Ghost.
Isaiah 41:13 KJV
13 For I the Lord thy God will hold thy right hand, saying unto thee, Fear not; I will help thee.
