There are postures couples must constantly maintain in their marriage to position their marriage for unending bliss. I will like to share seven of those postures with you as illustrated in this pictures of myself and my Queen.
1. COUPLES MUST WALK TOGETHER: Marriage is a journey. It is a long journey. The day you married each other, you have started a journey. Don’t abandon your spouse to walk the journey alone. Hold each other’s hand and walk together. most times, the journey might seem tiring and strength-exhausting , but if you keep your eyes on the goals and you keep cheering up one another, you will find it a sweet journey.
2: COUPLES MUST RUN TOGETHER: The reason why many homes are running down, is because couples are no longer running together. Marriage is like a race. Run it! If you don’t run, you will ruin it. This race is not a competitive race between husband ad wife, but a complementary race . You are to both run so as to win the prize together. Don’t be tired,run together with your spouse. Parenting is one of the races to run in marriage. Don’t abandoned your spouse alone to run it. Run together! (Hebrew 12:1-2, Corinthians 9:27-29)
3: COUPLES SHOULD BOW TOGETHER: This means, as couples, you must surrender to the will of God for your marriage. Bowing is a symbol of absolute surrender. Whatever God brings to your ways in marriage, bow to his sovereignty. If He gives you three boys and no girl, don’t because of that victimize your wife. If you have all girls and no boy, don’t because of that be bitter against your wife or divorce her. Where your will comes headlong with God’s will, let God’s will swallow your will. His will will always wheel your marriage to a glorious destination. Bowing also means an act of worship. Worship God together as couples.
4: COUPLES SHOULD SIT TOGETHER: Marriages are sinking today because many couples are not sitting together to work out their marriage. Some married men prefer to sit 8 hours in beer parlour, night clubs, club meetings, etc than to sit 30 mins with their wives and plan their lives and marriage together. Some wives can sit down with Zee world from morning till night than to sit with their husbands and have meaningful discussion. Some men can sit all days with their laptop, phone,etc than to sit with their wives. If you don’t want your marriage to sink and stink, please sit together with your spouse!
5: COUPLES SHOULD LIE TOGETHER: Again, if two lie together, then they have heat: but how can one be warm alone?’ ( Ecclesiastes 4:11). Couples should form the habit of laying together. It is a posture of relaxation and bonding. Don’t just lie together because of sex. There are times you should just lie together, gaze at each other’s face, touch each other, have a heart-to-heart talk together. Laying together also suggests sex. Sex should be regular and sizzling in your marriage. If you are not laying together as couples, then you are lying that you truly love your spouse.
6: COUPLES SHOULD KNEEL TOGETHER: As couples, learn to bow your knees together in the place of prayer. Though God wants to see you in the place of prayer as individual, yet, it delights Him when He sees couples coming together in His presence, kneeling together at the throne of Mercy to draw power for their lives and marriage. Blessed is that home where couples kneel together before God, for they shall stand tall in the world. Remember, ‘If you can kneel before God, you can stand before any man. Jesus said ‘ What ever two of you shall agree in my name, it shall be done unto you’. I know He had couples in mind when He said that powerful statement. Dear couples, go on your knees together. ‘The family that prays together, stays together’.
7: COUPLES SHOULD FLY TOGETHER: I am not talking of now. I am.talking of future flying. I am.not talking of just flying plane, family jet together. Though that is good too. My focus is getting ready as couples for the rapture of the saints. What a great joy it will be if we both make heaven as husband and wife. No matter how blissful our earthly marriage might be, it cannot be compared with the joy of the Marriage supper of the Lamb. Truly we cannot continue as husband and wife in heaven, but we can continue as saints in the Holy city of God. I love my Queen so much that, I don’t want all to end here on Earth. I want us to see Jesus together . I want us to walk the golden street of the new Jerusalem together, surely not as husband and wife as we have it here, but as co-heirs and overcomes in Christ Jesus. Prepare to take this posture together as couples. Jesus Christ is still coming! Read this sure words.
For this we say unto you by the word of the Lord, that we which are alive and remain unto the coming of the Lord shall not prevent them which are asleep. For the Lord himself shall descend from heaven with a shout, with the voice of the archangel, and with the trump of God: and the dead in Christ shall rise first. Then we which are alive and remain shall be caught up together with them in the clouds, to meet the Lord in the air: and so shall we ever be with the Lord. (1st Thessalonian 4:15-17)
