Our father and creator of heaven, the earth and all that dwell therein; your name alone is the greatest above every others in Jesus name. Amen. Before you this day we have come to thanking you for your goodness and faithfulness towards us, our families and businesses in Jesus name. Amen. However gracious God, never cease to be our God and keep ensuring the supply of our daily needs in the mighty name of Jesus Christ. Amen.
Brethren in the Lord, yesterday evening; a brother came and gave me reason he would divorce his wife with serious passion. He said if his wife cheats on him, he will divorce her without compromise. I however explain to him that God never intended divorce because it will affect the growth of the kingdom of God. This knowing fully that a family is a unit in the development of the church with is the kingdom of God on earth.
Our Lord Jesus Christ explained this so much while addressing the Pharisees one day, He said it has never be in the plan of God that a married couple should divorce. Then what cropped up? SIN! Brethren you should know the foundation of sin is the ideas the enemy bring to counterfeit the primary intention of God for man. “replied, "You are so heartless! That's why Moses allowed you to divorce your wife. But from the beginning God did not intend it to be that way. I say that if your wife has not committed some terrible sexual sin, you must not divorce her to marry someone else. If you do, you are unfaithful.” Matthew 19:8-9 (CEV). GOD HATES DIVORCE AND NEVER PLANNED FOR IT.
Children of God, things can be better if we will consider this other advice given by the Apostle Paul to the same church in Ephesus. He stressed this matter and he is instilling this majorly to the husband who are the head of their wife. It is a major factor that has to do with life as a whole because connected to God and really all about God for real. LOVE will grow the marriage and where LOVE is at work most faults that instigate the DIVORCE will be nowhere.
“Even so ought husbands also to love their own wives as their own bodies. He that loveth his own wife loveth himself: for no man ever hated his own flesh; but nourisheth and cherisheth it, even as Christ also the church; because we are members of his body. For this cause shall a man leave his father and mother, and shall cleave to his wife; and the two shall become one flesh.” Ephesians 5:28-31 (ASV)
Brethren in the Lord, aside from spiritual influence; I have never seen anyone who claims to hate him/her self. Therefore, you have no reason to hate your wife or husband whom you have chosen to marry and even fortunate to have bared children for another that you will want him/her away from your life with DIVORCE. Sincerely brethren, GOD HATES DIVORCE and He cannot be happy with the execution of DIVORCE of marriage.
I pray this morning for every family reading this devotional that the enemy will not will your battle in Jesus name. Amen. The love to continue in the fulfilling of God’s purpose for marriage, Jehovah will release to you and your household in Jesus name. Amen. Your decision to cleave to your wife and husband as one flesh, one bone and one body shall not turn around for regret for you in your entire life in Jesus name. Amen. Good morning and enjoy the weekend in Jesus name. Amen.
