Many young men and women overlook the fact that it is the Lord God Almighty who created romantic relationships, and that His help can make you have a wonderful relationship.
Through His word, the Bible, and in many different ways, He tells us, “Incorporate me in your life and in your romantic relationship, for because I am the originator of love relationships, I am the best Person to help you have a great romantic relationship.”
In this article, I want to share with you the advantages of acknowledging God in your romantic relationship.
Let us now take a look at some ways involving God in your romantic relationship can help you to have an absolutely incredible relationship.
1. God Will Keep Opportunists And Relationship Wreckers Away From Your Relationship
When You commit your relationship to the God of love, He brings His influence to bear in the relationship. God is described in Deuteronomy 32 v 11-12 as a Mother Eagle. A mother eagle spreads abroad her wings in order to protect and hide her young from an attack. With her wings, the mother eagle can drive off assailants and soar away with her young. In other words, she is so tender.
In just that same way, God will be tender towards you and your relationship, when you commit it to Him and invite Him to be a part of it. He will constantly shelter you with His strong presence and keep assailants, such as people who want to steal your partner away from you, away from your partner, if you ask Him to. This will give you peace of mind to enjoy your partner or mate.
2. God’s Influence On Your Relationship Can Help To Prevent Breakups
So many romantic relationship breakup when the relationship goes through strain. Partners start having frequent fights, that creates tension in the relationship, and finally the partners part ways when they can’t reconcile their differences.
However, God pities those who look to Him and involve Him in whatever they do. Father God senses tender love for lovers and couples who commit their lives and their relationship to Him.
He knows you are just clay and that you will sink under a heavy load. He knows that you can easily be broken under the pressure of severe trial. And so when your relationship is going through strain, if your lover or spouse is abusing you or making life hard for you, or if you are facing financial difficulties which is threatening to destroy your relationship, and you call on God, He will intervene to bring peace so that you can resolve differences, or He can make ways to provide for you. He is the God who makes 7,000 ways where there seems to be no way.
As a Father, He will inspire courage and fortitude in you to make you withstand any challenge that will come your way. Consequently, you can withstand hardship better, you can manage challenges better as a couple which will make your relationship resilient and able to stand the test of time.
3. God Is The “Mother” Who Will Comfort You And Give U Peace
God is the mother that comforts her children. One of the names for God is “El Shaddai”—a term which means “the breasted one.”
As a mother, He can bring comfort and peace to your heart when your lover or spouse is mistreating you.
Consequently, you will continue to maintain tranquility in your heart, you will maintain a sense of purpose, and you will continue to maintain order in your life, when your partner hurts you. Additionally, you will find it easier to ignore hurts and slights so that you keep working on your relationship to make it work.
On the other hand, people who do not involve God in their relationships are quick to revenge when their partner hurts them, this lead to fights which weaken those relationships.
4. Prayer Can Make Your Partner More Committed To The Relationship
One way you can involve God in your romantic relationship is to communicate with Him through prayer.
Research has revealed that praying for your partner or spouse can make him or her more committed to the relationship. A lover who is more committed to the relationship or marriage will devote more time to it, will treat you with love and respect, and will do all he or she can do to make the relationship work.
So, regularly, pray for your partner. You may pray a prayer such as, “Dear God, Glory be to Your Holy Name for helping me to meet Isaac. Father, I love Isaac a lot and I want our relationship to last until we marry, or until we die (if you are married). Please work on the heart and mind of Isaac so that he will continue to focus on this relationship. Let him continue to be dedicated to our friendship so that we can bond better as lover. Let him continue to be devoted to me and to this relationship, to sacrifice his time to have conversations with me, let him cheer me up when I am down, let him continue to give me gifts so that we can continue to create a healthy relationship. Lord, let him continue to love me. Help him to resist the advances of other women so that he will remain true to me. Let him continue to have the “we” feeling and not the “me” feeling. Help him to continue to cooperate with me to overcome the challenges that we will face so that we can build a robust love relationship that can withstand all the storms that we will face. Amen.”
5. Involving God In Your Relationship Through Prayer Can Make You Bond Better
Research has shown that when people pray together, they become nicer and also the feelings of camaraderie become stronger.
Consequently, praying can make you relate to your lover or spouse better. Additionally, you are more likely to trust your partner or spouse, and your partner will trust you better. Trust is one of the essential ingredients needed to “cook” a great relationship.
Besides, the rapport between the two of you will be strong, you will bond better and the love connection between the two of you will be very strong and that can lead to a happier, stronger relationship or marriage.
So, regularly, if you are dating, pray a prayer such as this with your partner, “Dear God, I thank you that I met Isaac. I thank You that You have kept us for all these years that we have been going out. Lord, we want our relationship to grow, we want to love each other more and more every day until we marry eventually. Please help us. Help us to remain true and faithful to each other. Help us to be able to resist the temptations to cheat that will come our way so that we can remain loyal o each. Help us to develop our friendship so that from day to day we will grow closer in love. And in this age where promiscuity is so rife, help us to resist the urge to commit fornication so that You will continue to love us and give us Your grace to help our relationship to work. Amen.”
6. Prayer If You Are Married
If you are married, pray a prayer such as this every day so that God will help your marriage to work, “Dear God, Heavenly Father, we thank you for your mercies and grace that are keeping us together every blessed day. Lord, You tell us in Your word that unless You build the house, we labor in vain if we try to build the house. Yes, Lord, we recognize that if You don’t help us to build this marriage, if You don’t protect us from evils influences, if You don’t teach us to forgive one another when we hurt each other, if You don’t teach us to love one another, especially when it is difficult to love our spouse, our marriage cannot stand the test of time. Father, please help us. Help us to continue to understand each other so that we can empathize with each other. Help us to continue to act with humility towards each other so that we can accommodate each other to strengthen the harmony in the marriage. Please help us to control our anger when we have disagreements so that the small quarrels will not escalate into big fights that may destroy the stability of this marriage. Help us to treat each other with respect and consideration. Help us to guard our hearts against destructive influences such as drugs and alcohol, so that we can maintain the peace in this marriage. We need You, Lord. Help us every day so that we can build a beautiful, lovely marriage to Your glory. Amen.”
Furthermore, you can easily infuse prayer into your day so that you can lift your partner before the Heavenly throne of grace for Divine intervention to take place.
7. Go To Church Together Regularly
Another way you can involve the Great Jehovah in your relationship or marriage is to go to church often. Research shows that going to church regularly can give you positive emotions.
Another study conducted by the Institute for Family Studies suggests that couples who attend church together relate to each other better than couples who do not go to church together regularly.
When you feel positive about yourself and about life, you are more likely to be cheerful. This will have a positive effect on your personality, make you more likeable and lovable, you will make the relationship more exciting, you will treat your lover or spouse with dignity and honor, and that can increase the chances that the relationship will be strong and healthy.
So, do not stay at home on Sundays. Resolve to spend that time in church so that you can experience the praise, worship, singing, dancing, and exultations that go on there. As you participate in the activities, as you worship Jehovah and sing to the glory of His name, and as you fellowship and interact with fellow church members, you will get tips which can help you to improve your relationship with your girlfriend, boyfriend, or spouse, your spirits will be lifted and all that will help to make you a better lover. Additionally, God will speak to you through the sermons about themes such as believing in Him so that you can be a secure person, you can be content with your partner, and you can persevere when challenges come, which will all go a long way to make your relationship work.
8. God Can Speak To You Through His Word, The Bible
Another way you can involve God in your romantic relationship or marriage is to make Bible reading together a habit. God speaks to us through the Bible. There are many passages in the Bible which teach about relationships and marriage, and which can help both of you work through problems in your relationship so that your romantic relationship will have a better chance of working.
• For example, 1 Corinthians 7 gives couples sex advice, Ephesians 5 v 21—23 teaches spouse how to relate to each other so that there will be harmony, peace, love, and joy in the marriage, and 1 Corinthians 13 teaches about how to love your partner.
• As you keep reading God’s word, He will mold you, just as a potter molds clay, and work on your hearts and minds so that you will cherish and treasure your partner or spouse a lot more. That will help you to communicate better in your relationship, you will resolve conflicts better, you will learn to live in fear of God, and you will reverence God which make you more willing to honor your marriage vows. Consequently, you will both be happy in the marriage and that will make you have a stronger marriage.
• If you are not married, involving God in your relationship by reading the Bible often as lovers and obeying His commandments, such as the commandment not to have casual sex, will help to make your relationship better—according to a study published in the Journal of Family Psychology published by the American Psychological Association, unmarried couples in relationships who delay having sex until they marry have a more stable relationship, are more satisfied in their relationship, and communicate better in their relationships than partners who have casual sex.
9. It Will Help You Resolve Conflicts Peaceably
When you cultivate spirituality as a couple or as lovers, you will surrender your hearts and your wills to God. That will increase your spiritual intimacy.
Consequently, God will rule in your hearts. Therefore, you will be able to act with kindness towards each other. So, you will find it easier to forgive your partner or spouse when there are misunderstandings during relationship conflicts—you will remain calm when your partner or spouse hurts you, you will pray about it so that you can control your temper before you react. This will help to prevent big fights that can tear your relationship apart.
10. God Will Give Both Of You Joy
One superb way God can influence your relationship positively is to put His Spirit in your hearts so that you can live a life of joy.
Joy will help you to have a calm, assured confidence in God, to trust in His love for you as a lovers or as a couple, and to know and feel that God will always be there in your relationship or marriage no matter what challenges you face. This will give you peace of mind so that you can enjoy each other.
Furthermore, this joy will make it easier for you to be selfless, to sacrifice for each other instead of seeking to preserve yourselves. You will desire to seek the comfort of your partner or spouse above your own comforts and that will make your partner feel happy and he or she will relate to you better.
Moreover, this joy will give you a submissive mind. That will make you think “my spouse deserves respect” instead of “I can treat my spouse any way I want.” You will seek the greater good of the relationship and not your own parochial interests and that will help to make your relationship healthy.
Besides, this joy will give you a secure mind. A secure mind will help you to remain calm under pressure when trouble strikes your relationship. So, you will not get easily frustrated and irritable, you will not get dissatisfied with your partner when hardships come, and that will help to maintain the stability in the relationship. Consequently, your love for each other may last a life-time.
11. God Will Help You To Get Your Self-Confidence Back When You Err—He Forgives Imperfect Spouses
One of the simple yet beautiful verses of the whole Bible is the phrase, “God is love.” God showed this love to the woman in John 8 who was caught in adultery— He forgave her for her sin.
Today, many spouses who have cheated on their spouses but have truly repented are crushed because they feel rejected as a result of words of scorn and ridicule poured on them by their spouses. This makes them have low-self esteem
Unlike your spouse who may judge you when you err, God will not judge you. Yes, He will let you know that you have sinned, but He will give you love and a refuge in His bosom, He will not condemn you, and He will give you a second chance, if you truly repent. This will help you to gain your self-esteem back so that you can try to win the trust of your partner back.
These are some of the ways God can help to make your relationship better or make it work. God says to us in many ways every day that, “Incorporate me into your relationship and I will use my Great Power to transform it so that it will be a relationship others will envy.”
Many others have taken up this challenge and are enjoying the positive fruits of working with God in their relationships every day.
If you are struggling to create a sustainable, enjoyable relationship, involve God in your relationship today and it will experience a positive transformation.
