For this reason a man will leave his father and mother and be united to his wife, and they will become one flesh.
God invented relationships. He invented marriage. Can a project really be successful if we leave the Master Designer out of the picture?
Our heavenly Father understands better than we ever could what it takes to make a relationship work. He knows best what we need, and only when we submit to Him are we truly able to love each other. We can’t really make our spouses happy on our own for the long haul.
A marriage not built on God’s foundation is structurally flawed—destined to suffer cracks of selfishness and pride. It will be unable to withstand the storms and quakes of life. If you want a strong foundation for your marriage, check out the thirteenth chapter of 1 Corinthians in the New Testament of the Bible. Read about true love—the stuff from which strong marriages are made.
Remember, God used marriage to illustrate His relationship with His people. The Church is often called “the bride of Christ.” The One who created us to be together first created us to be with Him. He wants what is best for us, and He wants to be involved in all of our human relationships, especially one as significant and life-changing as marriage. Invite Him into your marriage. His wisdom will be the best wedding gift of all.
