The Beginning Of The End Of The Rest Of Your Life

The day you enter a wrong marriage marks the beginning of the end of your joy, peace, success, health, . . . name it. My heart leaps when it comes to the point of vow exchange at weddings. I wonder if the couple really understand what they are getting themselves into. To me, that is […]

Be a Man, not a Weasel

What does it take for you to admit you’re wrong? In the case of Joseph’s brothers, it took what appeared to be an imminent disaster (Genesis 42). Most of us actually find it difficult to admit we’re wrong. We find it hard to confess our sin to our partner and say: “I am sorry. ” […]

Openess In Marriage

A marriage has to be built on a love-based commitment. ‘Perfect love casts out fear’ (1Jn. 4:8). You can’t risk hiding something important from your spouse, thinking, -f I share that, he’ll reject me! When you do that, your relationship is controlled by fear, not love. Being ‘Naked and not ashamed’ is God’s intention for […]

Fighting Conflict With Prayer

Bible Focus: Genesis 27:5-13Imagine how the biblical record of Isaac and Rebekah’s home would have been different if they had learned to deal with their conflicts through prayer, rather than through deceit, scheming and manipulation. If you want to do a better job of resolving conflict in your marriage (and every other important relationship for […]

A Wife’s Ultimate Need

Genesis 24:67 says, “And Isaac brought her into his mother Sarah’s tent, and he took Rebekah and she became his wife, and he loved her; thus Isaac was comforted after his mother’s death.”Yeah right!

Respect Your Husband

The Apostle Peter calls special attention to the title Sarah used in addressing her husband, “my lord” (1 Pt 3:6). She used this title as a way to show Abraham her respect. In a similar way, the apostle Paul writes, “Let the wife see that she respects her husband” (Eph. 5:33). When you respect your […]

What is wrong with looking at someone other than my spouse or thinking of this person in a sexual way?

When we entertain sexual thoughts about strangers in the theater of our minds, we give ourselves to those images. When we invest our attention and sexual energy with others, we will have little or no sexual energy for our spouse. Lust can lead us down the pathway of poor choices, one compromising thought at a […]

To the unmarried, write:

My heart bleeds when I hear about or see all these failing marriages. The foundation is usually the source of the problem. If the foundation of your marriage is faulty, you are in for serious trouble. Many people are so in a hurry to be called married that they fail to ensure that the foundation […]

Pleasing God In An Ungodly World

  Noah lived in an ungodly era, a time when the earth was corrupt and filled with violence. The sin that was so rampant in those days brought chaos, disorder, anarchy, and confusion. Scripture might just as well have been describing our world today. Yet even in the midst of the evil of his day, […]

Regenerated Heart

A heart that truly wants to change is a heart that is ready for the renewal that only God’s Spirit can bring. The Holy Spirit is the one true source of renewal. You can not do that by yourself neither can another human being do that. That’s why you can’t change a man, only God […]

Regrets

Regrets caused by sin are cleansed by heartfelt confession, forgiveness and repentance. Devil always wants us to remain in the valley of regret. Snap out from that self-pity mode. Stop condemning yourself. There is therefore no more condemnation for those who are in Christ Jesus, . . . Remember? Don’t allow yourself be cheated. You […]

Understanding Your Spouse

Understanding is not merely a transfer of information, but an empathy for the other person based on what he or she communicated with you. Understanding is essential in building each other’s self image. You must continually seek to comprehend the context of each other’s lives, the kind of context that helps to explain our self-image, […]

Are You A Hopper?

Some youths enter into relationships indiscriminately. They keep hopping around without a sense of direction. They go in, have an accident with the car they’ve decided to drive by themselves without a navigation map. They are broken in pain and need a repair. They end up with endless number of scars. Hello, who sent you […]

Hannah’s Situation

My attention is drawn to the story of Hannah as recorded in 1Samuel 1 today. Hannah had no child while her step-wife had children. She was being oppressed by this other woman. Her case seemed hopeless. Despite this, she kept serving her God. She never decided to boycott going to the temple to worship God. […]
