Building A Strong Spiritual Foundation In Your Relationship

We have God the Father, God the Son, and God the Holy Spirit. When he created us, he made us in his own likeness, and in Genesis 1:26 he said “Let us make mankind in our image, according to our likeness…” God, therefore, created us as triune beings with Body, Soul, and Spirit. This is why it is important to not only base our relationships on the flesh but also spiritually.

God created us as relational beings and this is why we get into relationships; platonic, family, and romantic relationships. In this post, we will be learning how to build a spiritual foundation in our relationship with Mercy Wairegi Njenga. God created us with a spirit that feels the need to draw from a being, and a need to worship and that is the void experienced when one is without God. Before any relationship, it is important to find an identity in God, so that you cannot worship other people or substances. Worship of wealth, riches, drugs, friends, or family members occurs when one has a void deep down… a void that only God can fill.

How do I know that I am relating spiritually with my spouse? 

Pst Mercy Njenga: Two cannot walk together unless they agree. Once you accept Christ in your life and you are walking with the Holy Spirit, he gives you the spirit of discernment. When you realize you are conflicting too much in a relationship, it is likely that you are not relating spiritually. For example, it could be issues of alcoholism, and your partner does not feel convicted to quit drunkenness yet you feel uncomfortable taking alcohol, there is evidence of spiritual disparity.

Can you change your spouse through prayer?

Pst Mercy Njenga: It is not entirely impossible, but one of the hardest ways to change someone is on the spiritual level. This is because you are not fighting the person, but the spiritual forces behind their behavior. Ephesians 6:12 says For our struggle is not against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the authorities, against the powers of this dark world and against the spiritual forces of evil in the heavenly realms. You have to ask yourself if you are ready to take on that war, and also it has to come from the person in question because it all lies in their choices. It is possible to pray someone out of that behavior, but it might take you longer than you think.

Is getting born again enough when it comes to choosing a spouse?

Pst Mercy Njenga: No, getting born again is not enough. Some people say that they are born again, but they do not live for Christ. Being born again means I have surrendered, I have given Christ my yoke, and I have taken his yoke that is easy. It means I am ready to forsake sin and worldly pleasures and walk with Christ. Once you discover someone acknowledges what being born again actually is, then you can verify that. Most people who go to church say that they are Christians but actually don’t mean it because they live a life that does not represent Christ.

What is the important thing a couple has to consider spiritually before marrying?

Pst Mercy Njenga: You need to court and date in a Godly way. If you need your marriage to work you have to involve God from the onset. You cannot date in sin and then you want a Godly marriage. Some run on the wedding day to get a pastor to pray and expect that they will have a marriage guided by God. Your foundation has to be strong in the Lord, and even discussions in preparation for marriage should revolve around a Godly life. Your spouse also should acknowledge God, it cannot be one-sided.
