The Bride and Groom look into each others eyes as they lock in love and repeat the words that the Pastor speaks on the wedding day. As they both “AGREE” on the for better or worse part of the vows they either aren’t aware of the test that will follow or just consider the words a repetitive speech spoken at a wedding. What do you do when “The Worse” happens. What do you do when you find something out that devastates your entire world? Separation? Divorce? Pray?
Every couple’s “worse” may vary but one common thread is that it brings one or the other spouse to their knees crying out to God on how to handle it. See when you are a Christian and understand how God feels about covenant and divorce you don’t just run to the nearest courthouse. We are in the world but not of the world. The world runs and gets a divorce, the body of Christ must seek His Will for their situation.
The Worse could be: adultery, gambling, rebellion, lovelessness, workaholics, varying addictions and the list goes on. The question is what happens when the “worse” comes knocking at your door and what happens when it comes knocking 3 months, 6 months, 10 years… after you say I do. What do you do when you have entered into a covenant in which God is the 3fold cord?
- NO one told Moses, Abraham, David, Joshua all of the trials that they woud face. God just called them and said go here and you will do this but He did not tell them all the things they would have to face to get there.
- NO one enters holy matrimony aware of all the trials that they would face. If they did they probably would never sign up
- NO one can expect every day to be awesome but the movies and so called couples we view make it seem that every day is awesome. This is simply not true. Many couples smile in public and fight in private
- Love is blind but marriage is an eye opener – 9.9 times out of 10 marriage is going to reveal the shortcomings, sin or addictions that no one saw coming before.
The devil hates covenant. The enemy did not care about you fornicating or living together before you got married but the minute you said I do he put his boxing gloves on.
Marriage is the representation of God and the Body of Christ and the devil will do everything in his power to destroy it.
So what do you do when what you thought was perfect is not? Seek His Face!
Only God can direct your steps and He will!
