Day 121 – Marriage is Good
‘And the Lord God said, “It is not good that man should be alone; I will make him a helper comparable to him.”’ Genesis 2:18 (NKJV)
Marriage is good and its origin is from God. No matter what we personally think about the institution of marriage, or what the statistics on divorce say, these do not negate the fact that marriage between man and woman is good and is ordained by God.
God said it is “not good” for man to be alone. When God concluded creation, after making the animals, the earth, and the skies, He looked at everything and declared it is good. The only thing that was not good in His eyes was the fact that man was alone; he needed someone comparable to him. Proverbs 18:22 says: ‘Find a wife and you find a good thing; it shows that the Lord is good to you.’ (GNB). The NLT of this verse says: ‘The man who finds a wife finds a treasure’. When a man finds his own wife, he has found treasure from God, he has found the missing good in his singleness! This is God’s view about marriage and this is what I believe. I would like you to believe this too. In that wise, you husband, know and declare always that your wife is ‘good’, and you wife, you need to know and declare to yourself, you are ‘the good’ that came into your husband’s single life. Take time to think about this truth, let it shape your confession and attitude towards your spouse. Encourage your friends with this truth and teach it to your children. May you experience a fresh wine of love and peace in your marriage relationship. Have a very good day.
