A healthy relationship at home is a threat to any form of marital failure. As long as the home remains inseparable entity amid possible challenges, distractions, success, confrontations, responsibilities, friendship, fellowship, and problems her Eden is secured.
Many things contend with God for the attention of the home and her members. Seeking for prime portion of her time, resources, treasures, peace, hope and grace. Thereby, dictating the pace, peace and possibilities in such home. If any of these succeed, the stability of the home is threatened and her strength diluted. The home is then drifted further from the place of her promises.
The verse preceding chapter three verse one, gave us the picture of a home that had a perfect bonding “naked and secured”. However, the incidence in chapter three opened a very important chapter in the history of this one. Just like every home that has experienced turbulence or is currently experiencing the like, started one day! Chapter three gave account of process of isolation that caused a great accident in the first home recorded.
Actually, there are three categories of isolation noticed in these verses. Each is aimed at reducing the value and purpose of a home.
1- Isolation of home from God
2- Isolation of husband from wife and children
3- Isolating of home from their Eden (Environment of Destiny)
The fact that serpent had discussion with Eve and Adam was not part of it, showed that he was somehow isolated. This may have been schemed by the enemy or could be blamed on necessary responsibility! The chief intention of the enemy was to separate them from God, and thereafter isolate them from their promises and destiny.
He started by isolating the woman from the man. She was involved in a long discussion that got her faith weakened and her trust eroded. “When the woman saw that the fruit of the tree was good for food and pleasing to the eye, and also desirable for gaining wisdom, she took some and ate it. She also gave some to her husband, who was with her, and he ate I”. Genesis 3:6
Physical presence does not inhibit isolation. There could be a lot of things: matters, thoughts, deliberations and discussions within the mind of an individual. The mind could be seriously engaged with divers thoughts calculated to cause isolation from credible values, belief, conviction, vision dream, people, processes and fulfilment.
It is possible for spouse to be physically present yet absent from each other. This happens when there is no enduring purpose for establishing that home or when their credible purposes are betrayed or seems not to important in a spouse’s mind or in both minds.
May God help Our home! AMEN
