Let’s finish this series on the last and one of the most important points…
7. Never ever question that your marriage is God’s plan for your life.
As I have said previously in part one, marriage is awesome. But just because something is a wonderful thing doesn’t mean it’s going to be bump-free. And as women we have to be on our guard against a certain ploy the devil might use to bring this beautiful thing called marriage to a screeching halt.
It all begins in our minds. Something was said or done to disappoint us, expectations not met, and certain thoughts start to creep in. “Did I marry the right one?” “Did I miss it somewhere and marry the wrong one?” These thoughts seem harmless at first, but you can only play with fire for so long before you get burned!
If we give these thoughts a place in our mind, then as time goes by those doubts slowly grow into a fear. A nagging fear that convinces the woman that she married the wrong man, and her marriage wasn’t a part of God’s will for her life. Women start to feel like they are missing out and that they need to get back to square one and give it another shot.
Listen closely, these thoughts are lies put together by the greatest liar of all time. The moment you marry your husband, you will be joined together in a God-created unity. Once this unity has been formed, there should be no turning back.
“In the original creation, God made male and female to be together. Because of this, a man leaves father and mother, and in marriage he becomes one flesh with a woman—no longer two individuals, but forming a new unity. Because God created this organic union of the two sexes, no one should desecrate his art by cutting them apart.” Mark 10:6-9 MSG
I don’t care if you marry Prince Charming himself, these doubts will still try to attach themselves to you. Don’t give them place. Your marriage is now a part of God’s plan for you on earth, and He has no plans to ever give up on you, your husband, or your marriage!
“For I know the plans I have for you,” says the Lord. “They are plans for good and not for disaster, to give you a future and a hope.” Jeremiah 29:11 NLT
