Godly Marriages Are Bound Together with “Supernatural Glue”
And Adam said, This is now bone of my bones, and flesh of my flesh: she shall be called Woman, because she was taken out of Man. 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 2:23-25 KJV)
This scripture verse is highlighting the fact that God desires for a man and a woman to be together in an unbreakable marriage covenant bound together with the spiritual presence of God in a one flesh union. This is God’s perfect will for joining a man and woman together in marriage excluding any other party from coming between this strong three cord union.
The Holy Spirit of God works to unite the man and woman with a strong binding, like using a “spiritual glue,” from any outside intruders penetrating into the marriage relationship. This is like having a guard posted at the door to detract likely gatecrashers bolstering the solidness of the marriage relationship. This marital hedge prevents weakness and the formation of cracks and fissures yielding to outside forces serving to deteriorate and decay the marriage relationship.
The original union of Adam and Eve was unblemished and perfect; in their nakedness they had no shame. Once Eve, with Adam soon following suit, ate of the fruit their eyes were opened and enlightened to their nakedness, severing their spiritual relationship with God and naturally aligning them together with the sin nature and darkness of the god of this world.
The only way man and woman can have a godly marriage is to invite God to sit on the helm in their relationship supernaturally directing and guiding their marriage.
