Foundations are very important in building, ask the mason, architect or draftsman and they’ll tell you same. Above all the Bible clearly states the importance of a solid foundation- Matthew 7:24-27
King James Version (KJV)
3 If the foundations be destroyed, what can the righteous do?
Examples of wrong Marital foundations are:
*Not prayerfully choosing (especially today when satan is raging against truly divine unions!) By prayer and fasting choose the proposed spouse who will walk hand-in-hand with you to achieve your destined purpose here on Earth not a devil-sent-to derail and destroy-Unequal yoking
*Being too dependent on the opinions of others like mother, father, other family members, friends etc is a big MINUS in preparing to build a solid Marital structure.
Low self esteem and lack of grooming which prepares a person for getting involved with another person with respect, regard and trust in a relationship especially marriage.
*Sex before marriage…..the marriage bed should be undefiled (“…If you have the milk for free why buy the cow”?)
*Playing down plausible priorities… the devil strategically unites the wrong choices, wisdom and seeking a discerning spirit is important to separate the wheat from the chaff and identify the seemingly angel of light for what it is, A FAKE.
*Ignoring obvious signs of non-commitment and a care-free attitude in platonic relationships is a great pointer at Ancestral covenants/curses being hindrances to good and stable marriages (some people come from a lineage and history of broken marriages and homes. It is either the spousal choices are never serious or responsible or the one never has the zeal to commit in a LONG term relationship. Being responsible is not a word in their vocabulary. The powers and strongmen of their lineage keeps them bound, troubling them and never allowing them to ever leave and cleave.
A BAD MARRIAGE IS like A BRIEF INSIGHT INTO THE CONDITIONS OF HELL FIRE!
I once heard it said that the next worst thing in comparison to Hell fire is a bad marriage!
Marriage is a LIFE-TIME CONTRACT (In some sense) according to God’s word, divorce is not an option for the heaven-minded and heaven-bound Christian, you can only call upon the God of MARITAL UNION to help you in a troublesome union with an evil and shaky foundation… leave it to Him to make the FINAL decision as per what is best for you and the situation at hand. TRUST IN THE LORD WITH ALL YOUR HEART AND LEAN NOT ON YOUR OWN UNDERSTANDING.
Do not make mistake number 2, after choosing a spouse from your own understanding by once again making a wrong decision to CANCEL the situation without a strategic YES,LET HIM!
1 He is like a man which built an house, and digged deep, and laid the foundation on a rock: and when the flood arose, the stream beat vehemently upon that house, and could not shake it: for it was founded upon a rock.
If you died today, are you absolutely certain that you would go to heaven? You can be! TRUST JESUS NOW
