Marriage is honorable among all (Hebrews 13:4) Then the Lord God said, “It is not good that the man should be alone; I will make a helper fit for him” (Genesis 2:18) There are many great verses regarding marriage in the bible.
Marriage is a great occasion in man/woman’s life. But in my life, it became a complicated issue. I am a very simple girl, born & brought up in Hyderabad, India. I accepted Jesus Christ & got baptized in the year 2009. My mom is a “Christian” & dad a “Hindu”, not saved yet.
I hope you all got to know what the problem is for my marriage. This is one among many hurdles I had for marriage. Every Christian parent wishes to have a daughter/son-in-law from a spiritual family background. My parents used to worry a lot.
My marriage played an important role in my spiritual life. My relationship with God became stronger. I started praying to God with worry. I used to read bible with an intent to hear from God through His word. I used to listen to the messages delivered by pastors which are aired on a Christian television channel. God has comforted me with His word. God made me strong and gave me patience to wait for His works to be done.
Since then I started thinking that God is going to take care of everything and not to worry for anything. I asked God to give His beloved child as my husband. I started praying for my to be husband everyday.
One fine day in the month of February, 2013 God spoke to me. I was listening to a message delivered by a great pastor. I believe that God speaks to us through pastors. On that day pastor was delivering message & he said “whoever is waiting for marriage, their marriage is gonna happen by the end of July month”. At that moment I received the word of God. I was elated about God’s promise & excited about getting married by the end of July.
From that day I used to confess the word I have received from God in my prayers. Finally my in-laws came to see me in the month of April-2013 & I met my husband for the first time in the month of June. We got married on July 25th, 2013. What God promises God provides it.
We completed our 1st anniversary this year. I am so blessed to have him. He is such an awesome gift from God. He makes me feel like an angel. That is no surprise because the gifts that come from God are always “the best”. God always provides the best to His children.
So my dear friends I want to tell you, “Just believe in God” and know that our Father God is with us and not to worry for anything because He will take care of everything. Whatever the situations might be “Rejoice in the Lord always” (Phillipians 4:4)
If you think that your physical appearance is a problem for your marriage, then think about it: “I will give thanks unto thee; for I am fearfully and wonderfully made: Wonderful are thy works; And that my soul knoweth right well.” (Psalm 139:14) God works are great. We are His creation. God knows about everyone. God will send you a person to whom you are the most beautiful.
If you have a bad past & it is a problem for your marriage then confess your sins before God. Our God is a great God. His love endures forever. The moment you ask for forgiveness, God is ready to forgive you. “Come now, and let us reason together, saith Jehovah: though your sins be as scarlet, they shall be as white as snow; though they be red like crimson, they shall be as wool.” (Isaiah 1:18) When you are forgiven you are a new creation in God. Forget your past & start your new life. “Turn you to the stronghold, ye prisoners of hope: even today do I declare that I will render double unto thee.” (Zechariah 9:12)
So my dear friends whatever might be your situations, seek God first, then He will provide you with everything, more than you ever wanted. “Yet seek ye his kingdom, and these things shall be added unto you.” (Luke 12:31) May God Bless You All. Amen.
