Isaiah 62:5b – And as the bridegroom rejoices over the bride, so shall your God rejoice over you.
Biblical marriage — one man and one woman before God for a lifetime – is a border that demands protection. Pledging our love to one another “until death do us part” is a commitment that requires serious consideration.
When the prophet, Nehemiah, learned that Jerusalem was demolished, he prayed and fasted to ask for God’s help. When King Artaxerxes offered his assistance, Nehemiah asked for a letter to rebuild Jerusalem. Before construction began, Nehemiah knew he needed to obtain the king’s permission.
Wisdom bids us to seek God’s permission before we begin to build a relationship. Is this the person whom God has chosen for me? Together, can we build a strong family? Our King of Kings, Who sees from the beginning to the end and Who has a plan for each one of us, desires to give us good gifts.
As we build our marriages, it is imperative to keep God at the center of the relationship. An attacker can overpower one person, but two can resist him; a threefold cord is not easily broken though (Ecclesiastes 4:12). When a couple abides in Christ, they find the strength and sufficiency to weather every storm.
When the Lord builds our home, our work will not be in vain. He blesses our partnerships and anoints them for His holy purpose. We find our “happily-ever-after” in Him.

Heavenly Father, I submit my relationship to You. Help me to honor my partner as Your child first. Help us to never stray from keeping You at the center of us. May Your plans be accomplished in us and through us. In the name of Jesus…amen.
