Building A Home Of Your Choice

TEXT: Genesis 28: 18-25; Psalm 127:1-5; Ephesians 5:21-23; Proverbs 18:22, 24:3-6

INTRODUCTION

Marriage is like a building, it requires wisdom and knowledge of God to build it. It is a vision from heaven, then it requires the help of He that formed it first. Except the Lord builds your marriage, you will simply be laboring in vain. It requires love, understanding and proper connection to the Spirit of God to get all you need in your home. The success of your home is a choice, it does not fall like ripe fruits from heaven. When you have a wrong picture of your husband or wife in your mind, you cannot be happy in that home again until you change that image. Such bad pictures of your husband or wife in your mind will always make his or her good intentions to be misinterpreted. You can't have peace in your life if you take away your husband's or wife's peace.

CHOOSING THE RIGHT PARTNER FOR LIVING

  3. The success of your marriage is in your hands. Every good marriage is built by someone like you. Prov. 14:1
  4. Every man or woman must have a vision to build a man or woman of his or her choice. So you don't get tired until the man or woman of your choice is found in your home.
