God's design for marriage does not include all of the trauma, drama and tension most marriages and households are engulfed in. What becomes a slap in God’s face and a shame to the Body of Christ, is the mass number of Christian couples who must call the police and invoke the judicial system to settle their marital issues. I've been in courtrooms and personally watched these couples, who say they love God, go to combat against one another. I’ve watched them make false accusations, death threats, and pronounce curses on their soon to be ex-spouses. After the dust has settled and their marriages are ripped apart, many of them respond by saying, “every marriage has problems and our marriage was no different!” Once again, wrong answer! Read God’s divine standard for every marriage. Isaiah 32:18. And my people shall dwell in a peaceable habitation, and in sure dwellings, and in quiet resting places.
God’s divine standard for a husband and wife is dwelling together in a peaceable habitation. Did you get that? That word peaceable means a friendly, safe, happy and prosperous household. The Word of God goes on to say. Psalm 128:1-3
1 Blessed is every one that feareth the Lord; that walketh in his ways.
2 For thou shalt eat the labour of thine hands: happy shalt thou be, and it shall be well with thee.
3 Thy wife shall be as a fruitful vine by the sides of thine house: thy children like olive plants round about thy table. - By Danjuma Iliya.
