PREVAILING VOICE DAILY
Topic: TALK ABOUT IT
Text: Genesis 3:8-9 KJV
8 And they heard the voice of the Lord God walking in the garden in the cool of the day: and Adam and his wife hid themselves from the presence of the Lord God amongst the trees of the garden.
9 And the Lord God called unto Adam, and said unto him, Where art thou?
Marriage is an institution established by God, as such it’s a spiritual affair not just physical. However, as spiritual as it may be some physical things are very vital for a successful marriage and relationship, one of such things is communication. Parallel communication between married couples or intending couples is important just as their vertical communication with God. From our text above if God could communicate with Adam to know the issue on ground (what happened) and why Adam and Eve went into hiding, then its important for couples or intending couples to talk about their issues for common resolution.
In my perspective, many things could be left unsaid to friends, colleagues or workmate but nothing should be left unsaid to your spouse or your intending partner. Talk about everything, clear out issues, discuss your differences and have an agreed standpoint to certain issues in your marriage or relationship. Never assume for your partner, even if your assumptions were right, still talk about it because your partner possibly might not know you have certain thought or assumption about him/her which could be wrong. Never spiritualize everything in your relationship, remember that your spirit filled partner was not born an angel, and has a different family background or upbringing, eventhough spirit filled, he/she is still a man/woman in the flesh.
There was a story of a lady who was married less than a year, and was pregnant with a child. She went to see a doctor to abort the pregnancy she was carrying for her husband simply because she felt her husband was cheating on her with her another lady. Not that she caught him red handed but she knew her husband somewhat was talking secretly with a lady on phone at different times. She assumed her husband was cheating on her, she did not even know the other lady in question, she wanted to take a drastic decision that she may forever regret in life, she has not even talk about it with her husband or confront her husband on her suspicion. Thank God she missed the doctor in the hospital and she opened up to a counsellor.
Dearly beloved, many marriages are struggling today or are broken because they won’t talk about issues. Nothing, absolutely nothing is too big to talk about between married couples and even intending marriage partners. Don’t assume wrongly and don’t take irrational decisions that you may regret because of your assumptions, rather just talk about it with you partner then pray about it to your God. God bless you.
* Father, give us solutions to every issues that are eating up our family, homes and marriages in Jesus Name.
