Marriage, the sacred union of hearts has been a cornerstone of human existence since time immemorial. Its origins can be traced back to the very essence of God Himself. Let’s delve into the profound concept of marriage, the divine plan it represents, and the principles that can transform it into a paradise on Earth.

The Divine Genesis
Marriage originated from the Fatherhood of God

In the beginning, as the Bible tells us, God created the heavens and the Earth, and from His divine wisdom, He fashioned the institution of marriage. It was designed not as a necessary evil or a trial but as a place of profound beauty and harmony, a paradise in its own right. Adam, the first man, did not realize the need for a companion until God drew his attention to it. This revelation teaches us that marriage is not meant to be endured; it’s a realm of unending delight if we adhere to the principles set by its Originator. However, it can also turn into a nightmarish ordeal if not approached with intention and understanding.

The Foundation of Marriage
Marriage Is Based on Laws or Principles

Marriage is not a casual venture; it is a purposeful and transformative journey built upon principles. Choosing to marry is one of the most impactful decisions a person can make, second only to discovering their purpose in God. It has the power to shape and define a person’s life, for better or worse.

Many individuals come from backgrounds filled with brokenness and misconceptions about marriage. To create a fulfilling, lasting union, we must invest time in self-improvement, reshape our mindsets, and clarify our expectations of marriage. We must be perpetual students, dedicated to learning the principles that underpin successful marriages.

The Divine Blueprint:
Exploring Principles from Genesis

In Genesis 2:15-25, we discover the fundamental principles that underline the institution of marriage:

Principle 1: Purpose Precedes Partnership
God provided Adam with a purpose, a divine assignment, before He blessed him with a wife. Finding one’s life purpose is paramount and should take precedence over the pursuit of marriage. It imparts direction, maturity, and responsibility, all essential for a thriving and purposeful marriage.

Principle 2: God’s Design for Companionship
Marital relationships were God’s idea, not man’s invention. Unlike the feeling of loneliness and incompleteness that often drives people to seek a partner, Adam was whole and content within himself. He was so engrossed in fulfilling his divine assignment that he didn’t even realize he needed a companion. The desperation for a partner stemming from emptiness and brokenness is unhealthy and must be addressed before embarking on a loving relationship.

In conclusion, marriage is a divine gift, a haven of joy and purpose, if we adhere to the principles that underpin it. By understanding that purpose comes before partnership and that God’s plan for companionship is not driven by desperation but by completeness, we unlock the potential for a harmonious and fulfilling marriage.

Marriage, when approached with reverence for its divine blueprint, can truly be a slice of heaven on Earth.

    Marriage is God’s institute and must go by God’s principle to enjoy it. Marriage is meant to be enjoyed and not to be ensured.
