A Cord of Three Strands Is Not Easily Broken

A Cord of Three Strands Is Not Easily Broken

A person standing alone can be attacked and defeated, but two can stand back-to-back and conquer. Three are even better, for a triple-braided cord is not easily broken. Ecclesiastes 4:12(NLT)

There’s nothing better than a really great marriage and nothing worse than a bad one. Christian marriages are meant to be living proof that two people can become a strong force in achieving God’s will – both for our pleasure and to impact the world.

However, the blending of two individuals into one harmonious marriage is a process that won’t happen on its own. A good marriage does not just happen, no matter how wildly in love you are when you get married. You need to invite God into the process.

When we know Jesus and invite Him into our marriage, our relationship is made up of three strands. And there is great strength in the union of a man and woman when Christ is included.

Happiness in marriage is not about finding a spouse who always acts the way we want them to. It is about two imperfect people trusting in a perfect God and conforming to His will and purpose for them. That’s a marriage God can bless!

Prayer Starter: God, I love my spouse, but a two-strand cord is not enough. I want to do my part to invite You into our marriage so You can strengthen our love for each other and lead us into Your plan for us.
