Pleasing Your Spouse Versus Pleasing The Lord 

In marriage, you are advised to please each other. That is what marriage is all about. Care for each other. Focus on each other.
Apostle Paul believes that if you don’t create the necessary balance, you can get distracted in your walk with God because of the demands of marriage. And that is true.
Many people got married and got carried away in the neglect of their relationship with God.
Let’s take a look at the scriptures.
1Co 7:33-34 (AMPC)
33  But the married man is anxious about worldly matters--how he may please his wife--
34  And he is drawn in diverging directions [ his interests are divided and he is distracted from his devotion to God ]. And the unmarried woman or girl is concerned and anxious about the matters of the Lord, how to be wholly separated and set apart in body and spirit; but the married woman has her cares [ centered ] in earthly affairs--how she may please her husband.
Divergent directions
Divided interests.
So true.
So, in dealing with this, the couple has to come to terms.
There has to be some form of agreements, principles and decisions they make as regards their relationship with God.
And then, they stick to them.
If both husband and wife can decide to please the Lord, they will eventually please themselves. That is how it works.
In pleasing the Lord, the love of God will be shed abroad in their hearts. God will ensure that He protects them and honor His words in their lives.
To please your spouse, start out by pleasing the Lord. Then God will give you ideas, wisdom, strategies, innovations on how to please Him.
He will speak to you through the Holy Spirit on how to satisfy each other.

1Jn 2:27 (KJV)
27  But the anointing which ye have received of him abideth in you, and ye need not that any man teach you: but as the same anointing teacheth you of all things, and is truth, and is no lie, and even as it hath taught you, ye shall abide in him.
Here is where I will rest the case
Have a fulfilling week.
God bless your marriage!

I will not be distracted

Lord, teach me your wisdom


1Co 7:35 (GW)
35  I'm saying this for your benefit, not to restrict you. I'm showing you how to live a noble life of devotion to the Lord without being distracted by other things.

Ensure you are both pleasing the Lord

Exodus 39 - 40
