The Practise Comes From Walking in Agreement
Bible Text: “Can two walk together, unless they are agreed?” – Amos 3v3 (GNT)
Hi Y’all, how you doing, I do trust everything has been wonderful with all that concerns as you as Psa.92 v 4 (NKJV) says
“For You Lord, have made me glad through Your work; I will triumph in the works of Your hands.”
I do believe you’re blessed likewise through our journey in the relationship series and that indeed you are further built through the teachings of His word on how best to handle your relationship and that “new wine” continually flows in your relationship and marriage.
That being said, let’s get to the chase!
One thing I have learnt is that no matter the conviction or witness you might have concerning anyone towards a long-term commitment if there is no confirmed agreement from the significant other, that relationship might not survive the storms, challenges and realities of life that would storm through. Amos 3v3 (GNT) says
“Do two people start travelling together without arranging to meet?”.
Both parties cannot start off such a journey as this if there is no conscious meeting of the soul and mind between both parties. A good example could be seen in Gen.11 vs 5 – 6 (NKJV) which says
“But the Lord came down to see the city and the tower which the sons of men had built. And the Lord said, Indeed the people are one and they all have one language, and this is what they begin to do; now nothing that they propose to do will be withheld from them”.
Phil. 2 v 2 (GNT) says
“I urge you, then, to make me completely happy by having the same thoughts, sharing the same love, and being one in soul and mind.”
Romans 15 v 6 (NKJV) says
“that you may with one mind and one mouth glorify the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ.”
From the above captioned verses, I came to an understanding that God is completely happy and bring glory to God and our Father of our Lord Jesus when intending couples walk this journey towards marriage with the same thought, being one in soul and mind, speaking the same language as counseled and guided in light of the Word of God. This is just a start of great beginnings.
Hebrews 3 v 1 (NKJV) says
“My Christian friends, who also have been called by God! Think of Jesus, whom God sent to be the High Priest of the faith we profess.”
All intending couples called out by God should consciously agree to have their constant thought towards Christ and totally submitted towards God in the building of their home as Hebrews 3 v 3a, 4 (GNT) says
“A man who builds a house receives more honour than the house itself. Every house, of course, is built by someone—and God is the one who has built all things.”
However, Psa.127 v 1a (NKJV) says “If the Lord does not build the house, the work of the builders is useless.” All those intending into making a long-term commitment towards marriage are encouraged to make a conscious agreement towards rendering due honour to ‘God who has built all things’ the privilege of building your relationship thus avoiding any impending fall that would be imminent if one fails to allow God, into building your relationships.
Concluding, ladies and gentlemen, it is imperative that whoever you are looking forward spending your life with, is not only under God but is in agreement in travelling down this beautiful journey called marriage. For intending couples, there must be a conscious agreement to letting God build your home which would avoid strife and differences especially with regards to training your children.
