“Look!” he (The Lord) said. “The people are united… nothing they set out to do will be impossible for them! – Genesis 11:6. That scripture was concerning the people who wanted to build the Tower of Babel to reach the heavens. It’s interesting that God acknowledged the power that lies in their unity. Because they were of one mind and spoke the same language, He said nothing will be restrained from them that they imagined to do. Imagine if this kind of partnership were in a marriage relationship.
Where the husband and wife speak the same language concerning the issues that have an impact on their home; the great things they will achieve together will be unimaginable! It’s so important that you remain united so your relationship and family can enjoy the best of God. The bible tells us that when we’re united, the blessings of the Lord must be constant (Psalm 113:1-3). And the blessings of the Lord don’t come with sorrows. However if we remain divided and if we allow strife, it means that disorder and every kind of evil is allowed to come in (James 3:16). Work out differences and strive to maintain unity. Pray everyday for oneness between you and your spouse, especially on critical matters that can make or break your home.
Don’t be hardened while your home is in trouble. As the blessings of the Lord are waiting to for you, the evil works of the devil are also waiting for you. The division or unity in your home determines which one you get. Dont be a trouble maker; promote peace! Don’t wait for your spouse to take the lead in promoting peace, either. As long as YOU know better, do better. And as you do, God will honour you. Sit down, talk things through, and compromise as required.
Don’t shy away from getting the right counsel, if you need it. Just be prayerful and sensitive concerning who you speak to and don’t allow the wrong seeds of counsel to be planted in your heart! Whatever you do, do what it takes to be a house united! May every goal, every vision, every dream you set out to do individually and as a couple be cheaply accomplished in Jesus’ name. Amen! – Kemi Oyedepo @theoyedepojnrs #unity #marriage #light#wisdom #crisisproofyourfamily #ontheroadtoido
