Foundation For An Enviable Marriage (3)

Dear Reader,

It has been so wonderful since we started this teaching on the foundation for an enviable marriage.  I know that the Lord has really loaded you with a lot of ingredients that will ensure that your marriage is listed as part of the few enviable ones.  By this, every crisis in your marriage is ending and never to re-occur in Jesus most holy name!

This week, I will be teaching on some Characteristics of an enviable marriage.  God’s Word says: Through wisdom is an house builded; and by understanding it is established: And by knowledge shall the chambers be filled with all precious and pleasant riches (Proverbs 24:3-4).  If you want your marriage to be desired by other individuals and homes, then understanding these characteristics is a must!

Commitment to Your Spouse:

Marriage is a lifetime and total commitment, an unreserved dedication of one’s whole self to the marriage relationship.  Commitment is the backbone of an enviable and successful marriage.  It is the adhesive that holds marriage together.  When commitment is lacking in a marriage, the chances of survival of that marriage is very slim.  It is important for you to know that what the spinal cord is to the body, is what commitment is to marriage; without it, the marriage is paralyzed.  That shall not be your portion in Jesus’ name.

Effective Communication with Your Spouse:

Effective communication with your spouse is a major characteristic of a fulfilled marriage.  Many marriages break down as a result of faulty communication.  It is not just communicating, but effective communication is what makes an enviable marriage.  Lack of effective communication is the reason for so much tension in many homes today.  Effective communication can be said to be the “mortar” that cements marital relationship.  In essence, effective communication is the key to a desirable and fulfilling marriage.

Absolute Trust in Your Spouse:

Trust is placing confidence in someone.  Trust is a part of our daily life.  That is why lack of trust in a marriage brings death to that marriage.  To enjoy a fulfilled marriage, trust is a vital tool.  Trust is a virtue built through experience, over a period of time.  Trust is reciprocal.  The more you express your trust to your spouse, the more he/she responds to you in trust.

Being born again is the very place to start from, to secure a glorious marriage.  The foundation of an enviable marriage is God. Do you want to enjoy a most successful marriage?  If yes, then give your life to Christ. This entails confessing your sins and accepting Jesus as your Lord and Saviour.  If you are ready for this new birth experience, please say this prayer: “Dear Lord Jesus, I come to You today as a sinner. Forgive me of my sins. I believe You died and rose on the third day for my sins.  I accept You as my Lord and Saviour.  Make me a child of God today. Thank You for accepting me into Your Kingdom.”

Congratulations! You are now born again! All-round rest and peace are guaranteed you, in Jesus’ Name. Call or write, and share your testimonies with me through contact@faithoyedepo.org; OR 07026385437 and 08141320204.
