AGAPE NUGGETS – 4

Dear friend,make God the centre of your relationship or marriage if you want to succeed.God is the best Thermostat handler and the best Thermometer observer and reader.A thermostat is used to regulate temperature.If a body or system is too hot or too cold,the thermostat brings it to a safe and normal level.God,in his infinite wisdom has also installed a thermostat into the human body and other animals which he deems deserving of such.The human body in particular is enabled to function at its best throughout the year under any temperature.Do you know that human relationships do have their highs and lows in terms of heat and pressure? Hotness and coolness in emotions,anxieties,worries and disappointments are realities which promote instability both psychologically and spiritually,hence causing sorrow and sickness. Conversely, joys, happiness,acts of appreciation and commendation are positive levels of emotion which promote health.When God is at the centre,his words occupy first place in thoughts and decisions.God’s words refresh and renew our minds.Therefore,peace,joy and good health prevail both inwardly and physically. Sometimes the physical body may suffer pain or sickness,but the inward peace given through knowing God overshadows the difficult external manifestation.The word of God states: Thou wilt keep him in perfect peace,whose mind is stayed on thee:because he trusteth in thee.Trust ye in the LORD for ever;for in the LORD JEHOVAH is everlasting strength Isaiah 26:3-4. Peace within and around an individual is more than doubled when a man and woman in a life-long relationship,both submit to God and honour him with their lives. Difficult or challenging times would never destabilize such relationship,because God is at the centre.He is the defence,director,provider and sustainer.A striking difference exists between this peaceful relationship and a selfish, carnally-inclined relationship, where God has been dethroned!The Psalmist testifies: Many are the afflictions of the righteous:but the LORD delivereth him out of them all. Psalms 34:19. The righteous is a sinner who has repented, asking for forgiveness and obtaining it from God. Such a person has surrendered to God through Jesus Christ. Please, give God a chance. Grace be with you.
