Marriage from A to Z

Principles for a Successful Marriage

God has a Present for You!

God has a very special  present for every married couple and every single. When you become aware and mindful of His present, your marriage and your life will never be the same.  Most of us know about it, but we don’t really take it seriously.   Do you want to know what this present is?

The present is God’s presence.  God says that He will never leave us nor forsake us (Hebrews 15:5).  Since God promises to never leave us, it simply means that He is always here.  So wherever you go, He goes.  Whatever you are doing, God is right there with you.  In Matthew 28:20 He says,  “low I will be with you always even unto the end.”  Now God is not physically there in the flesh but He is always with us in spirit.  Psalm 139:7 says, “Where can I go from Your Spirit? Or where can I flee from Your presence?”  The answer to that is nowhere, because God is ALWAYS present.

Now if each one of us would remember this and stay conscious of the fact that God is present, I believe that our lives and relationships would be different.  I take comfort in knowing that I don’t have to do marriage and relationships alone.  Being aware of His presence makes me a better person.  Knowing that God is present helps me to stay calm when I want to get upset, it helps me to do right when I would do wrong and His presence helps me to say the right thing when I would say the wrong.  The enemy wants us to believe that God doesn’t see us, but He  is the God who sees (El Roi, Genesis 16:13).  If you are ever in trouble, His presence will bless you because He is a very present help  (Psalm 46:1).

God wants us to be mindful of Him in everything that we do.  If this is a struggle for you pray and ask God to make you more aware of His presence.  Train yourself to focus on God, be aware of  His presence in your every day task.  Frequent awareness of Him will bring you so much joy, love, peace, patience and security.  Also, wisdom, direction and righteous living.  Always remember God’s special gift to you, His Presence !

Until next week . . .
