Hebrews 13:4 “…Let marriage be held in honor (esteemed worthy, precious, of great price, and especially dear) in all things. And thus let the marriage bed be undefiled (kept undishonored); for God will judge and punish the unchaste [all guilty of sexual vice] and adulterous…”
Marriage these days seems to be anything but ‘held in honor’. More people are opting out of getting ‘married’; instead many prefer to be ‘living together’. Others marry with conditions attached, or they marry and give up too soon. Sometimes we think the easiest option is to walk away. It’s just too hard and painful to deal with the issues that arise. But that’s just what Satan wants. I believe the enemy is behind so much of the breakdowns in marriage and families. Even at the political level!
God takes marriage seriously, after all, He instituted it. No matter how hard it gets in our marriages, and we feel we want to give up, we need to remember that God can make a way where there is no way. A friend of mine shared that with me when I was going through a rough time. It really hit home. I had lost hope, but that statement gave me hope again. Nothing is too difficult to deal with when you invite God into it.
Marriage is most precious to the Lord when we come together in one accord.
