Your World: Overcoming Trust Issues Part 2
Like many marriages, we discovered that Tammy Rivera and her husband Waka Flocka Flame deal with trust issues on a regular basis. It’s a true testimony to the fact that a good marriage takes work. It doesn’t happen overnight.
During this episode in Your World, entitled – Overcoming Trust Issues Part 2. Pastor Creflo Dollar offered sound advice during this episode on how to make their marriage work. So, how about you? Are you facing your own set of issues?
The first step to a successful marriage is to make sure that it is a GOD CENTERED MARRIAGE.
The world has a backward concept of marriage. Typically, there is great celebration at the engagement announcement, a large and expensive wedding followed by a party-themed reception, and then—nothing. In reality, the weeks, months, and years after the ceremony are what’s really important. When we embark on an important spiritual journey like marriage, making God the center of the relationship strengthens and sustains it. “There is none holy as the Lord: for there is none beside thee: neither is there any rock like our God” (1 Samuel 2:2). The media tells us that the secret to a happy marriage is putting our spouse first instead of ourselves. This theory is only partially correct. However, to truly have a happy and blessed marriage couples need to put God first.
For a more realistic view of marriage, we must realize that although we love our spouse, sometimes we need supernatural help to remember our priorities. When we put God first in our marriage, everything else will fall into place.
“Submitting yourselves one to another in the fear of God. Wives, submit yourselves unto your own husbands, as unto the Lord. For the husband is the head of the wife, even as Christ is the head of the church: and he is the saviour of the body. Therefore as the church is subject unto Christ, so let the wives be to their own husbands in every thing. Husbands, love your wives, even as Christ also loved the church, and gave himself for it; so ought men to love their wives as their own bodies. He that loveth his wife loveth himself” (Ephesians 5:21-25, 28).
Even with the best of intentions, husbands and wives are bound to make mistakes. Couples who think a commitment of this magnitude will be successful through their own efforts are mistaken. Inviting God into the marriage from the very start, and letting His Spirit provide guidance and direction at critical times, is the key to marital bliss.
