Godly guidelines for a happy marriage

1. Establish your own private home

“Therefore shall a man leave his father and his mother, and shall cleave unto his wife: and they shall be one flesh.” Genesis 2:24.

God’s rule is specific. A married couple must leave father and mother and establish their own home, even if finances require that it be a one-room apartment. Husband and wife should decide together on such policies as these. Then she should inform her relatives and he, his. They must remain firm no matter who opposes.

He knew that He needed to maintain a close relationship with God – if He wanted to be effective in His ministry. He wanted a close relationship with the father. He wanted to hear God whisper. He wanted to hear that “still small voice” of The Father speak to Him.

So – He sought solitude and silence – so that He could hear God’s voice clearer. Here are some times and places we find Jesus in solitude:

“Jesus was led up by the Spirit into the wilderness to be tempted by the devil. And when He had fasted forty days and forty ...

The Bible tells us about Jonah who struggled with procrastination. He’s not alone. Procrastination is something that many of us struggle with. There’s something in your life you know you need to do, and yet you keep putting it off. That is called procrastination.
