The issue of marital breakthroughs is the desire of most couples, but while as some couples are enjoying their marriage relationship to the fullness the marriages of others are in crises while some, their marriage is a gross failure.
The difference between those enjoying their marriage and those whose marriages have failed is knowledge and ignorance. Some couples don’t know what it takes to enjoy a marital breakthrough. As such, some couples are doing in their marriages what they ought not to be doing while failing to do what they supposed to be doing in their marriage.
Moreover, some couples fail to realize that to enjoy a marital breakthrough, there is a necessary price to pay, but some couples wish to enjoy marital breakthrough at no cost. Those couples that are enjoying their marriage to the fullness, there are obvious prices they had paid.
Those who are not ready and willing to pay the price, this article may be hard for them to accept but this is the gospel truth. So, you must know and apply the correct principles of what it takes to enjoy a marital breakthrough and as well be ready and willing to pay the necessary prize for achieving it.
As said, the problems with many couples are that they assume to know what they don’t know in their marriages, and as such, they are running their marriage without correct principles of what it takes to enjoy marital breakthrough.
Marriages can be compared to products, it is very important to read and follow the instructional guides or manufacturer’s manual provided by a manufacturer of that product in order to understand how to best use product features.
Manufacturer manual contains the mind of the manufacturer concerning this product and as well as specific details about the product that is not readily available anywhere else.
Manufacturer’s manuals and guides inform consumers about product specifications and may also include assembly instructions. Without this information, consumers may not understand how to properly assemble or operate a product.
In the same vein, married couples must necessarily follow the instructions or guideline of the originators of marriage as contained in the Manual – the bible. No matter whom you are and whether you accept religious matters or not, if you fail to abide by God’s instruction as inscribed in the Bible, your marriage is heading for crises if not a fall.
One of the instructions can be seen in Ephesians 5:25 which say, “Husbands, love your wives, just as Christ also loved the church and gave Himself for her. Verse 28 so husbands ought to love their own wives as their own bodies; he who loves his wife loves himself”.
That is to say, men who fail to show love for their wives unconditionally, such men can never enjoy marital breakthrough. No wonder love is said to be the oil that lubricates every true marriage. What is the condition of your love for your wife?
As a man, if you truly and deeply love and cherish your wife, every other thing will fall into place. So you must really prove that you love your wife deeply before you can make any complaint about your wife.
Men who succeed in loving and caring for their wives, they will observe that they will enjoy marital breakthrough. Show me a man who loves and cherishes his wife and I will show you a man who will succeed and will enjoy marital breakthrough.
Secondly, another instruction is directed to the women which can be seen in Ephesians 5: 22 “Wives, submit to your own husbands, as to the Lord”. Verse 23 says, “For the husband is head of the wife, as also Christ is head of the church; and He is the Savior of the body”.
The above verses are talking about women being submissive to their husbands in everything. Show me a woman that is submissive to her husband and I will show you a woman whose husband will love and cherish.
Of a truth, most of the crises we have today in our marriages are caused by women who fail to submit to their husbands. There are also women who fail to recognize and accord their husbands as the head of the home. There are cases of women who challenge the headship of their husbands.
In the beginning of this article, I talked about being ready and willing to pay the prize. Resolving as a man to love and cherish your wife unconditionally and without any string attached and as a woman and resolving to submit to your husband wholeheartedly will unquestionable launches you into enjoying a marital breakthrough.
This is a fact, couples who play their parts by being committed to their marriage and to each other in any marriage will surely succeed in their marriage while as those who fail or despise the instructions of the scriptures tend to fail. So learn to follow God’s instructions about marriage and you will surely succeed in your marriage.
