Genesis 2:18 (GNB): Then the Lord God said, “It is not good for man to live alone. I will make him a suitable companion to help him”
One of the dictionary definitions of abuse is the improper use of a thing. This is why even good things can become harmful when they are misused or abused. We live in a time where there is an increasing attempt to take God out of the picture and grope in the dark trying to use the candle of human intellect to navigate through life; that is a mistake. Marriage is one of the places where this mistake is made.
A picture is being painted of marriage that involves just the emotions and decisions of the two persons involved, and unfortunately, some Christians are buying it. But this is an aberration. You don’t go into an institution and decide what the rules and regulations are depending on your whims, rather you subscribe to the laid down regulations of the institution or not enter at all. Marriage is an institution created by God. It was His idea, not man’s. He who created it has also decided how it must be done.
We must realize that marriage is not just about [the emotions and decisions of] the two persons going into it (otherwise if you take that to its logical conclusion then even homosexuality becomes an option). It is an institution that whoever must go into must meet with the entry requirements, and when in it, must run it according to the rules. So it is not just about Chemistry and Biology, it is about God’s will. That is the right outlook to marriage.
Malachi 2:15a “And did not he make one? … And wherefore one? That he might seek a godly seed…”
God has clear instructions on who a husband is and how he ought to behave, likewise for the wife.
Go into today determined to approach (your) marriage with God’s will in mind, for God’s will is both perfect, good and acceptable.
Prayer: Lord, help me to approach every area of life with your will as my guide. Amen.
