In HIS Presence: God created man in His own image, in the image of God He created him; male and female (Genesis 1:27).
There are no counterfeits in the kingdom of God. However, in Satan’s evil realm, there are only faulty imitations of what the Lord created to be good. The Enemy is determined to destroy God’s work, and he always begins by seeking to tear the family apart. He tempts us into compromising and doing exactly what we know is wrong. In times of sin, we may think so one will get hurt but ourselves. However, we are wrong. The ripple effect of sin goes on and on.
God promises to deal with every deed done in secret and darkness. We will have to bear the consequences of our actions. Usually, once sin begins, it does not stop until something tragic takes place. Sadly, our children often are the ones who suffer the most as they wonder why Daddy is not home or why Mommy left so quickly.
God’s plan for marriage has an instruction guide that is easy to follow. It begins like this, Love the Lord your God with all your heart, and with all your soul, and with all your mind” (Matthew 22:;37).
When you obey His principles, life becomes bright and full of joy. There may be some touch issues that you will have to tackle along the way. However, because you have obeyed Him, He will give you the strength and wisdom you need to get through every difficulty.
God wants men and women to partner together to fulfill his plan for the family.
