Can two walk together, except they agree? Amos 3:3
Love is a beautiful thing, no doubt about that, especially when you find a beautiful woman who compliments your look, your Job. A man who is good looking, who has the criteria to be a good husband…in essence someone who is presentable but people forget the Spiritual Assessment of the Relationship or courtship.
Most time, much attention is given to physical appearance and personality. But good looks and personality become insignificant when you’re having issues in your relationship.
Marriage compatibility should be considered, especially the spiritual aspects, before getting into a serious relationship.
Don’t wait until you are emotionally and physically involved before you start the evaluation of such a union. Many out there are regretting for starting their Relationship without seeking God’s consent first. What does God say about this relationship, Courtship I am into? Have you tried to do that? You do not just jump into a relationship because the chemistry there and working.
Some look so perfect together but they are going through a hell of a moment because they are not spiritually compatible.
We have heard stories about couple who stayed together for more than 20 years without any child not until they separated and got married individually before they started procreating. What happened in their union is simply because they lack spiritual compatibility. Some couples can be physically okay but spiritually off.
Mr. A married sister B and things begin to go from frying pan to fire, not that sister B is a witch or being possessed but the spiritual wire is not connecting them. It’s true that you need someone different to complement you, but you need to seek God’s consent first about it.
That is how relationships work. If you’re not on the same page spiritually with your spouse, you’ll find yourself going in circles.
A pastor once said:
“Know who your Master is and what your mission is before you select your mate. If your mate cannot support your mission you’ll have a mess.”
You both can be very strong Christians and yet have huge disagreements when it comes to how you live out your faith in daily life. It simply means marrying someone from your denomination may not guarantee that you are equally yoked.
Spiritual compatibility involves how two people will come together as one. How they will handle and respond to life challenges, relationship issues, and certain changes that have to occur in life when God calls them to happen.
Spiritual Compatibility helps you understand each other without judging each other. There is a perfect understanding when certain things occur and especially when one of the couple is faulty, there is a word that says “It’s fine; I understand why you did it but never let it happen again”.
You also overcome obstacles together, no relationship is perfect, you disagree to agree. Disagreements are inevitable because you are two different people. You grow together in spirit; the strong one will help the weak one up to become strong.
Finally, when two people in a relationship have a close relationship with God, there is elimination of Unfaithfulness and Infidelity because the spirit of God is leading their paths and the word of God has become a lamp to their feet.
Do not allow LOVE blind you while looking at the physical appearance or outward appearances, never hesitate to connect to the Spiritual Aspects too. It’s important.
