“Marriage is honorable among all, and the bed undefiled;” Hebrews 13:4
The Lord had to teach me what this verse meant, and how making love to my husband is holy, clean, and ordained by God.
I had some very misconstrued ideas about this subject. Such as; you do not make love with the lights on! You have to be quiet! You do not enjoy it, you endure it! You do not pursue or instigate sex, and you never, never, never, ever make love on Sunday!
Do any of these statements sound familiar? It was very hard for me to believe that God had anything to do with sex. I was wrong.
God, by His grace and through the Holy Spirit, revealed His word to me. How He created man and women to be one, both physically and spiritually. To enjoy the blessing that He intended for marriage. He revealed that making love to my husband was not just a physical act, but a spiritual experience. My learning this did not happen over night. It took time for His word to get into my heart, mind, and soul.
He led me to read, “Song of Solomon” and other portions of scripture that deals with the marriage relationship. I prayed that God would change the way I thought and believed. I asked Him to help me be the wife that He created me to be, and I also asked that I would desire my husband, and love him with God’s unconditional love.
Before my husband would come home I would start thinking good thoughts about him. Because my thoughts would tend to wander when we were making love, I would have to focus on what the Word said and on my husband. It wasn’t easy at first. But the more I tried it, the easier it got. The Lord did a tremendous healing in me. I am very grateful that He has opened my eyes to see His truth.
Are you experiencing problems in the marriage bed? Are you missing out on the blessings and promises of God? My prayer for you is that you will allow the Holy Spirit to reveal the healing power of God’s Word. Then you will begin to enjoy the beautiful blessings of making love to your mate. remember that what He will do for one, He will do for another.
Blessings to you.
