In marriage, our desire as husband and wife is to honor God for allowing us to be a part of such an amazing relationship that reflects His goodness and mercies. Every marriage relationship needs a continuous reminder of the reinforcements that is required to build and sustain a meaningful and fulfilling union between husband and wife.
The Concept of Marriage Reinforcement Gives Opportunities
The first step in marital reinforcement is to have a spiritual and emotional connection with God. This special bond affords husband and wife the opportunity to gain insightful wisdom and knowledge to better understand the premise of what is needed to walk out marriage as God designed.
The concept of marriage reinforcement gives us the opportunity to operate in God’s blueprint for marriage from two reinforcement perspectives. First, a natural revelation, which is how we navigate the world around us as a couple being in the mist of distractions and busyness. Secondly, a specific revelation which encompasses God’s Word and how we use it to illuminate our hearts to follow God’s blueprint for marriage.
Invest in the Health and Care of Your Marriage
It is clear in the Bible that when our behaviors as husband and wife honor God, those good thoughts and actions are strengthened as we are reinforced by God’s reminders and love. Marriage is a relationship that requires an abundance of “giving” of ourselves for the greater good of our spouse without conditions. Furthermore, investing in the health and care of our marriage on a daily basis will go a long way toward a flourishing relationship with our beloved spouse.
God Reinforces Concepts for Future Relationship Blessings
In the New Testament, we see that Jesus reinforced His promises as He taught the disciples to give abundantly to others as they chose to obey Him. In their obedience, God would reinforce them for it by giving or blessing them with even more. Scripture states, “Give, and it will be given to you; good measure, press down, shaken together, running over, will be poured into your lap. For with the measure you see, it will be measured to you” (Luke 6:38). As we can see, God immediately reinforces those of us in marriage who follows Him and realize that the reinforcement is promised for later – which is a delayed relationship blessing.
Reinforce Your Marriage by Creating Godly Patterns
Periodically in marriage, we go through difficult times; but remember God already answered your request. Considering the reinforcements God already provided must be reciprocated by husband and wife through His specific revelations for marriage may be delayed according to His perfect Will? Although every marriage undergoes different challenges and seasons, we highly encourage every husband and wife to be reinforced and reminded of the roles and responsibilities that has been outlined in Ephesians, chapter 5, 1-33 as a start. In marriage, reinforce your relationship by creating a pattern or behavior that honors and reflects the image of God. This process begins with YOU, not your spouse. As You modify your behavior to receive God’s blessings, be patient and duplicate God’s love toward your spouse. God Bless!
