Hello dear friend,
Greetings to you in Jesus name.
I came across the phrase someone told us, “You both are made for each other” I was thinking what does it mean?
Generally when people see a couple who match in their height, weight, colour, job, hobbies, and so on; people pass on a comment saying, this couple is made for each other. I agree!
But I also feel made for each other does not only mean how they look on the outward, and what their likes and dislikes are; there is much more than this. It’s not only about how you both look together but how good you manage your life and family together, it’s not just about you staying together in a same house, but agreeing and staying together on every decisions you take together.
When a couple are seeing each other, dating, and at the start of the marriage, everything might seem very loving and caring; as months and years pass by, the way you treat each other decides whether you are made for each other or no.
Only after marriage you see a side of your spouse which you might have not seen while dating or at the start of the marriage. (Something even if you knew, you will see the intense of it and more frequently after marriage)
Marriage is challenging at times, and it demands constant sacrifice and change in you, not out of compulsion or pressure but out of the gigantic love you have for your spouse.
My prayer for you today is that, when God sees you, and when your see your marriage closely, and when the people around you see you both, may they say “you are made for each other”, in Jesus name.
There are standards and goals in marriage; it is easy to live when everything is normal, but when the storm of life come and when the wind blows harder, do you still hold on to your standards, promises and goals in marriage, or give up?
Dear friend, your spouse need your love more when he/she feels worthless,
Your spouse need your help when he/she feels helpless,
Your spouse need some encouragement when he/she is feeling discouraged,
Your spouse need your acceptance when he/she is feeling rejected,
Your spouse need you and your time when he/she is feeling lonely.
It is easy to tear someone down, it is easy to hurt, it is easy to insult, it is easy to blame, it is easy to make someone feel insignificant; but a child of God who has experienced the love, grace and forgiveness of God builds and blessed their spouse.
I will remind you a verse from Psalms 1:3: that person (a child of God) will be like a tree planted by the streams of water, which yields its fruits in season, and whose leaf does not wither, and whatever they do prospers.
It is God’s will for you to be prosperous and live an abundant life, God doesn’t want you to live in any kind of dryness – in any area of your life; and God wants, God desires and God has designed you to be FRUITFUL. Amen
Sometimes, life will bring you to a place where your season of fruitfulness is tested; but you have to choose whether you will produce the fruit of the Spirit of God, or produce the fruit of your flesh in your marriage. The kind of fruit you produce is the kind of a tree you are.
For example: if you are living in the season of hate, you should produce the fruit of love, if you are in a season of anger, you should produce the fruit of patience. No matter what season you are in, you should produce fruit of the Spirit.
Lord Jesus said, a good tree cannot produce a bad fruit and a bad tree cannot produce a good fruit. A tree is recognized by its fruit. What kind of fruit are you producing?
It might look impossible to produce the fruit of God at times in marriage, but you do not have an option.
You are made for each other, live like made for each other.
May God bless your marriage.
With much love and prayers,
Pastor Jeevan & Pastor Leena Jeevan.
