15 Has not the LORD made them one? In flesh and spirit they are his. And why one? Because he was seeking godly offspring. So guard yourself in your spirit, and do not break faith with the wife of your youth.
My marriage is so much more than an agreement between Alisa and me. We don’t stay together simply because it is a good idea for each of us. We entered a marriage covenant in which God is the Overseer. We are to be faithful to each other because this is God’s plan – a marriage and a household that is to bring him glory! My responsibility is to guard my spirit against all invaders and to keep my vows to Alisa, vows that I made before God and everyone. Why? To bring God glory and to receive God’s blessings – children who are godly. They are His.
Father, I re-submit my life and my household to your Lordship. You are God and You rule in this place. Be glorified through us and lead us in these days. Give us wisdom and grace! Through Christ I pray… Amen.
