Genesis      2:18-25

He who finds a wife finds a good thing, And obtains favor from the LORD. (Prov 18:22)

A blissful marriage is a divine gift and a mark of favour from the Almighty God.

In today’s Bible text, we see how God graciously provided Adam with a helper. The Lord knew that this helper must share the same image that Adam shared with God, and hence He created the woman. The Bible in Deuteronomy 27:21 says: “Cursed be he that lieth with any manner of beast. And all the people shall say, Amen.” Beloved, the Lord is calling on you today to cherish the gift He was given to you in the form of your spouse. It is an act of ingratitude for you to maltreat your spouse who is an embodiment of the Lord’s favour in your life. Speaking to both parties, the Holy Spirit in Ephesians 5:21 says, “Submitting yourself one to another in the fear of God.” Let there be mutual submission between the two of you. Learn to say “sorry” to one another whenever you wrong each other. To the Christian husband, please love your wife (Ephesians 5:25). Rebuke the ego that has been preventing you from apologizing to your wife whenever you wronged her in the past. To the Christian wife, I appeal to you not to allow that strange woman to take advantage of your pride and steal your husband. Submit to your husband as the head (Ephesians 5:22) May the Lord preserve your home for you in Jesus’ Name.

PRAYER LINE: Father, please forgive us our sins and help us to learn how to forgive one another. Father, please make our home as the days of heaven on earth in Jesus’ Name. Amen. (O.H)
