God’s concept about marriage is it’s Goodness. In the garden of Eden, as God saw that Adam was alone, he said it is GOOD, we create a Woman (Genesis 1:31). This is totally contrary to the idea on marriage we human beings have, some even say marriage is a NECESSARY EVIL, others see marriage as an idea, or because they see other people doing, or better still because they have something they want to achieve from their partners. Marriage is way beyond that. God’s idea about marriage is to produce Good things out of it, fulfilling destiny together.
Some rush into marriage because they like some physical traits about the partner, without looking at the major reasons and concept God designed marriage to be. God is very careful about the kind of partner he chooses for you, so don’t rush into it, seek for God’s guidance.
Many people believe the ideas of men more than the Word of God, and it is a spiritual law that what you believe affects what you experience and it shall be unto you, according to your faith. The fact that some people have been into marriage for more than 10-years, does not mean they automatically know it all, to the level of becoming your counselor and even to the point they detect whom you should and should not marry, only God can guide you on whom to marry, so therefore to access that, you need to fast and pray, some marriage are designed by the devil himself to bring down a person, steal and destroys that person’s destiny here on earth and maybe beyond. James the apostle also says that:
Every good gift and every perfect gist is from above, and cometh down from the Father of lights, with whom is no variableness, neither shadow of turning. James 1:17
Since marriage was instituted by God, and God is from above, marriage therefore comes from above, and cannot be less than good. Marriage is not only good, it is perfect especially when you are with the chosen one, rightly designed by God to you as a Gift.
Scripturally, marriage is good. It is how some people misuse and handle it, that paint marriage as a necessary evil as some will say it. Personally i believe marriage takes high level of understanding and compactibility of the both partners, this serves as a fuel that keeps them going. Whatever man’s concept you have heard about marriage, put it aside and believe what God says, because this is the only authentic view.
