“I (PAUL) have planted, Apollos watered; but God gave the increase. So then neither is he that planteth any thing, neither he that watereth; but God that giveth the increase. Now he that planteth and he that watereth are one: and every man shall receive his own reward according to his own labour. For we are labourers together with God: ye are God’s husbandry, ye are God’s building” (1 Corinthians 3:6-9 KJV)

WHAT TO DO TO GOD IN YOUR HOME
~ Give your life to him
~ Make him the senior partner in your home
And the Lord said unto me, Arise, take thy journey before the people, that they may go in and possess the land, which I sware unto their fathers to give unto them. And now, Israel, what doth the Lord thy God require of thee, but to fear the Lord thy God, to walk in all his ways, and to love him, and to serve the Lord thy God with all thy heart and with all thy soul, To keep the commandments of the Lord, and his statutes, which I command thee this day for thy good? (Deuteronomy 10:11-13 KJV)
The scripture above shows us five things Husband and wife who are the Paul and Silas,the planter and the waterer at home are to do to God who only can bring increase in their life and homes.
~ They must fear God
~ to walk in his ways
~ To love him
~ To serve him with all their hearts and souls
~ To keep the commandments and statues of The Lord
Don’t make God a tenant in your home make him the senior PARTNER in your union. Remember that words Christian used to hang in their houses in those days:
“CHRIST IS THE HEAD OF THIS HOUSE
THE UNSEEN GUEST AT EVERY MEAL TIME
THE SILENT LISTENER TO EVERY CONVERSATION
THE CHIEF PRIEST AT EVERY PRAYER TIME”
I think you need to hang this in your house,don’t just hang it but,let The Lord truly take over no matter how good,rich,knowledgeable,wise or nice you are you can’t make that marriage work without the grace of God,remember
PAUL (REPRESENTING HUSBAND) CAN PLANT
SILAS( REPRESENTING WIFE) CAN WATER
ONLY GOD CAN BRING INCREASE.
FORMS OF DIVINE RELATIONSHIP IN MARRIAGE
There are two forms of divinely arranged relationships that can make your marriage work and turn your family life around forever they are:
~~ TWOSOME RELATIONSHIP:
Two are better than one; because they have a good reward for their labour. (Ecclesiastes 4:9 KJV)
God commanded you to have a united marriage between you and your spouse.
“Therefore shall a man leave his father and his mother, and shall cleave unto his wife: and they shall be one flesh. And they were both naked, the man and his wife, and were not ashamed” (Genesis 2:24-25 KJV)
Two of you must stand together in everything the planter should support the waterer, the waterer should celebrate the planter and work together as a team so as to bring God into your family.
~~ THREESOME RELATIONSHIP: Two fold cords are easily broken in marriage by wind,persecution,problems,challenges,frustration,childlessness,friends,in laws etc.
But three fold cords can stand forever, that is why husband and wife must not just stand alone, they must bring God to uphold them, this is what is known as threesome relationship.
And if one prevail against him, two shall withstand him; and a threefold cord is not quickly broken. (Ecclesiastes 4:12 KJV)
Without Hod you cannot stand alone, you cannot war and win your battles, you need God at every phase of your family life. Psalm 127:1-3.
