From the Heart

The problems confronting our country can be traced back a foundational problem. The attack on the family and the erosion of biblical based marriages.

To many couples today meet someone, fall in love and then get married. I suggest that there is key a component that is missing in marriages, the lack of a couple seeking God’s plan and purpose. Is it the will of God that a couple get married? How can a couple know if they are entering a marriage that is within God’s will?

The following thought come from “The Biblical view of the Bible” by William Pinson, Jr.

First, being familiar with the Bible will help, because the Bible spells out guidelines for what a marriage ought to be. For example, a marriage should glorify God, for the Bible says, “Whatever you do, do all to the glory of God.” (I Cor. 10:31).

Second, trust God to reveal His will about marriage.

When you read Proverbs 3:5-7 shows that when a person is consistently following God’s will in all other areas of life one will also find it in marriage. The person who is violating what he already knows to be God’s will and yet is asking for God’s guidance in marriage may stumble blindly past God’s purpose.

Third, prayer is a significant aspect of discovering God’s will. The Bible emphasizes that through prayer a believer comes to know the will of God. Dr. T.B. Maston professor at Southwestern Baptist Theological Seminary, when he and Essie Mae were serious about getting married both spent time in prayer alone to seek God’s will about their marriage.

God is the author and creator of marriage and he knows what is best for each of us. We need to teach our children and grandchildren that being in God’s will is a foundational starting point for the marriage relationship between a man and woman.
