When you think of storms you think of violent disturbances of the atmosphere with strong winds and usually rain, thunder, lightening, snow and hurricanes. When we think of storms in a couples life; we see or hear of tumultuous reactions; uproars, controversy, commotion, disturbance, argument, anger and scandal. So, what causes so much controversy and why? We come to the realization that it is COMMITMENT. Being dedicated, loyal, and faithful. In other words not having your freedom to do whatever you want in a relationship. We hear too often about scandals, affairs and other men and women coming between marriages. What causes a man or woman to stray from a relationship that you so loved or shall we say lusted after one another. You then committed yourselves to vowels. A solemn promise, pledge, or personal commitment to one another. The act of being committed.
In 2 Corinthians 5:20 -21 NKJV, it says Now then, we are ambassadors for Christ, as though God were pleading through us; we implore you on Christ’s behalf be reconciled to God. For He made Him who knew no sin to be sin for us, that we might become the righteousness of God in Him. We are not sure if you completely understand this scripture but it says to be reconciled to God. Reconciliation means two people making amends with one another. Expose yourself and follow through. Strip yourself of your sinful nature. Couples need to give up and absorb the cost of what Jesus died for. He died for all of our sins and as long as you forgive yourself and others; who should be the judge. Surely not other people. Only our Lord and savior. So; once you get that out of your head and stop battling with your mind; you are free to break the barriers of your sin. In 1 Corinthians 7:3-11 it says Let the husband render unto the wife due to benevolence: and likewise also the wife unto the husband. This is another verse between a couple who should be tied together to love and respect each other above all else. 1 Corinthians 13:4-7 Love is patient and kind; love does not envy or boast; it is not arrogant or rude. It does not insist on its own way; it is not irritable or resentful; it does not rejoice at wrongdoing but rejoices with the truth. Love bears all things, believes all things , hopes all things, endures all things.
Let us Pray,
Heavenly Father in the name of Jesus we come to you this day with contentment of heart. We know and believe that Jesus died on the cross for our sins. We know that the storms will come in our life. We are asking that you give us a healing touch in our relationship to know more of you. Let us not be resentful toward one another; but show pure love for you and our spouse. Let us be more committed to one another with patience and peace. Show us how to not be arrogant, rude or boastful. Show me Lord; how to love me.
In Jesus most precious name I pray. Amen.
