My scripture for you today is…
Proverbs 1:7, The fear of the LORD is the beginning of knowledge: but fools despise wisdom and instruction.
I heard this statement by BDHM in a messages last night, “PRAY FOR AN IDIOT PROOF MARRIAGE”
It hit me that if you mistakenly marry someone who doesn’t fear the Lord, you have mistakenly married an idiot and you will know no peace in that marriage.
The word idiot in Greek is “idiotes“, which means…
* A person of low intelligence. An ignorant man.
* Someone lacking knowledge or awareness in general.
Anyone who doesn’t genuinely have the fear of God definitely isn’t right with it, and is lack something.
So if you have a man in the house whom is ignorant and unruly like Nabal. A man filled with a lot of pride and arrogance,you can not have an idiot proof marriage.
Nabal didn’t even see or notice whom the anointed one was, he lacked knowledge which nearly caused him his life and the life of his household.
1 Samuel 25:10, Nabal answered David’s servants, “Who is this David? Who is this son of Jesse? Many servants are breaking away from their masters these days. 11 Why should I take my bread and water, and the meat I have slaughtered for my shearers, and give it to men coming from who knows where?”
A man who doesn’t yield to counsel or have respect for authority.
How to avoid an idiot proof marriage
* Make sure he genuinely fears the Lord
* Never marry a lukewarm Christian
* Make sure he has a spiritual father
* Make sure he listens to instruction and corrections.
* MOST OF ALL PRAY YOU ARE NOT DECEIVED IN THINKING HE IS SPIRITUAL, YOU WILL BE DISAPPOINTED.
I once had a dream about a lady I know, who married a man whom she thought was God fearing and spiritual, even from the wedding day, she realised he wasn’t whom she thought he was.
He was very worldly and drinks alcohol regularly. In the dream she was heart broken at the realisation of her choice. She bitterly complained to God and at how disappointed she was in the man whom she has married.
May that not be our portion in Jesus name. Amen.
If you unfortunately have a Nabal, start to pray, not curse him and say negative things to him or about him.
Remember there is nothing too impossible for God and only God can turn his heart around.
The ability to obtain knowledge, wisdom and understanding will give you peace in your marriage and will make your marriage and idiot proof marriage.
James 3:17, But the wisdom that is from above is first pure, then peaceable, gentle, and easy to be intreated, full of mercy and good fruits, without partiality, and without hypocrisy.
When you have wisdom, you will have peace, and your marriage will be fruitful and filled with love.
* Pray that he will know the Lord and he will fear the Lord
* Pray that he will receive wisdom
* Pray that he will seek good counsel and acquire knowledge.
Be blessed and have a fruitful day 😇🙏😘
