The Border of Marriage by John Hagee

The Border of Marriage by John Hagee

Nehemiah 2:20
So I answered them, and said to them, ‘The God of heaven Himself will prosper us; therefore we His servants will arise and build, but you have no heritage or right or memorial in Jerusalem’

In our husband-wife relationships, we are responsible for maintaining the border of marriage. Nehemiah demonstrates a principle for us as we consider those who might discourage us in our endeavors.

In complete confidence, Nehemiah declared to the triple threat: “The God of heaven Himself will prosper us.” He put his enemies on alert. No matter what they said or how they attempted to thwart him, they had no bearing on his outcome. His outcome was determined by God alone. He was the One Who would protect and prosper them.

In fact, he went on to say: “…you have no heritage or right or memorial in Jerusalem.” He reminded them that the land on which they stood was covenant land. It was given to Abraham, Isaac, Jacob, and all of the generations following. Outsiders had no role in that covenant. They might as well pack their bags and leave now.

Many marriages have been destroyed by outsiders. Families have been torn apart because people who had no part in that covenant relationship wormed their way in to divide and destroy. We have a biblical mandate to take a stand, to shore up the marriage border, and demand that they find an exit.

God fights for our marriages. Are we protecting what He has promised to preserve? “What God has joined together, let not man separate” (Matthew 19:6). God desires to command a blessing on the unity in our relationships and to extend that blessing to our children and grandchildren. When outsiders who have no part in the covenant relationship attempt to breach the border, refuse to back down.

We are doing a great work in constructing strong marriages and families. Do not be distracted by detractors. Pull the border tight for your spouse, your family, and all the generations to come.


Heavenly Father, help me be vigilant in protecting my marriage. Do not let me be distracted from this great work. Help me to honor and protect my spouse and our family. In the name of Jesus…amen.
