Do we really know what we are doing when it comes to love? Do you know what God plan for love is? Do you know what God has said about love and marriage? The shameful thing about it is that most of us donâ€™t know and the question is, if we donâ€™t know how are we supposed to love right? How are we supposed to know what love entails? How are we supposed to know what we are supposed to be doing?
I will endeavour us all to read this for proper understanding of love, Gods plan for love and Gods plan for you. I will also say that, if Gods plan for love isnâ€™t showing in your relationship, you should quit because it means the relationship isnâ€™t Gods relationship for you. I know some of you are saying, itâ€™s impossible for me to quit, we have been together for 3years, we have been together for 5years. But I will tell you this, would you rather waste more years with him/her or start a new life afresh in joy and happiness. Yeah I donâ€™t think so, and in just 1year in a good relationship, you will forget the wasted 5years.
Below are Gods plan for love according to Michelle Hammond:
Letâ€™s look at what God tells husbands to do for their wives, which should let you know how serious he is about this love thing. â€œAnd you husbands must love your wives with the same love Christ showed the church. He gave up his life for her to make her holy and clean, washed by baptism and Gods wordâ€¦.in the same way, husbands ought to love their wives as they love their own bodies. For a man is actually loving himself when he loves his wife. No one hates his own body but lovingly cares for it, just as Christ cares for his body, which is the churchâ€¦â€¦..as the scriptures say, â€œ a man leaves his father and mother and is jointed to his wife, and the two are united into one. So again I say, each man must love his wife as he loves himself, and the wife must respect her husbandâ€ (Ephesians 5:25, 26, 28, 29, 31, 33). Now is that deep or what? Letâ€™s analyse this a little further so we can be absolutely clear on the meaning of love.
God tells the man he is to love the woman sacrificially he is to take care of her as if he is taking care of himself. Wow! I like this part: This man is supposed to be responsible for her spiritually, emotionally, and physically. He is to be her priest, her provider, her lover, her friend. He is to protect her, care for her, and cover her because that is what Christ did. He is to treat her as if she is the first person in his family. Paul said, itâ€™s a great mystery how two people ever get together and make love last, I agree with Paul 100% but the truth of the matter is, if itâ€™s done Gods way it works perfectly.
In Michelleâ€™s word, there are things I want to bring out for the ladies, and I will like them to note it, digest it and act on it.
Notice that God doesnâ€™t ask the woman to love the man. He asks that he respect the man. And if heâ€™s doing what heâ€™s supposed to be doing, loving him wonâ€™t be a problem, will it? As a matter of fact, if heâ€™s doing all the caring and nurturing heâ€™s supposed to be doing, the flame of your love will light up on automatic pilot. And submission for the lady wonâ€™t be hard for her to do. His actions will nurture your trust and confidence in his decision making process. You will have the peace of mind that his judgement call for everything he does is made with your good in mind.
Are you getting a clear picture of love yet? Letâ€™s try this example, make a list of what the man in your life does to make you feel loved and wait, before you get started down the wrong track, this list cannot have items on it like, â€œI feel tingly when he kisses me.â€ None of that! This is not about how he makes your flesh feel. We are talking about love not lust. Love reaches deeper into our souls and is more eternal than physical feelings. So save all of the mushy, touchy, feely stuff for the end of the list.
Love doesnâ€™t look painful or uncomfortable, please donâ€™t be like a lady who refuses to admit that she needs larger shoe and she keeps squeezing her leg in her tight shoe and later complains that are leg hurts, please whose fault is it? Be a principles woman. Principles women do not insist on hanging on to love that fits all wrong.

I just have to do this analyses for us all, I mean men and women to know the role to play in their relationship/marriage as it is stated by our creator and maker. I will tell us all not to forget all this point, list them and look for it in your partner before you commit yourself for life. I always say, look before you limp because if you donâ€™t look and you jump into, there is no turning back. Donâ€™t forget itâ€™s not how far but how well. Put Gods plan for love first in anything you are doing in your relationship and see how happy you will be.
