SEE YOUR SPOUSE FROM GOD’S PERSPECTIVE
To see your spouse from God’s perspective simply means to see the good, positive and hopeful side of your spouse even when they are not there with the understanding that everything that God made is good and that marriage is a good gift from God. One of the greatest undoings of many people is allowing circumstances, situations, challenges, events, places, and people to prevent them from seeing their spouse from God’s perspective and subsequently living their lives outside God’s purpose. If you want to save your marriage or bring back that special spark in any relationship, start by learning how to manage your perception said, Daniel Dowling.
It is important to see your spouse from God’s perspective because you are who God said you are; your spouse is who God said he/she is and above all, your marriage is exactly what God makes it. Everything good comes from God. Every perfect gift is from him. These good gifts come down from the Father who made all the lights in the sky. But God never changes like the shadows from those lights. He is always the same. James 1:17
God’s Word Is Eternal.
To be able to see your spouse from God’s perspective, you must hold the word of God at very high esteem. The word of God is not separate from God and the word of God lives forever and above all the word of God is very powerful and has the capacity to create and brings things to manifestation. The word of God is eternal therefore whatever the word said about your spouse is the truth and it is eternal.
The Integrity Of God’s Word
Heaven and earth will pass away, but My words will not pass away. Matthew 24:33
The rain and snow come down from the heavens and stay on the ground to water the earth. They cause the grain to grow, producing seed for the farmer and bread for the hungry. It is the same with my word. I send it out, and it always produces fruit. It will accomplish all I want it to, and it will prosper everywhere I send it. Isaiah 55:10-11
The circumstances of your marriage and your spouse; good or bad cannot change what God has made your marriage to be (the truth). For a batter marriage relationship, you must see your spouse from God’s perspective by believing that the truth (the word of God) is eternal and will remain eternal.

Marriage came from God, therefore, marriage is good and perfect including yours. These are truths from the bible and they are eternal.
Your Spouse Is A Master Piece From God.
For we are His workmanship, created in Christ Jesus for good works, which God prepared beforehand that we should walk in them. Ephesians 2:10 (NKJV).
How will you feel when you see a work that is carefully and wonderfully designed? Don’t you know that your spouse is a masterpiece; wonderfully and carefully made handiwork of God? Do you think that God will create something that will be one percent less from perfect? God took his time to tailor-made your spouse for you. You have to see your spouse from God’s perspective for a better marriage relationship. God created your spouse in Jesus Christ, and in Jesus Christ your spouse is complete; whole and entire lacking nothing.
Imagine what your marriage relationship will be like when you begin to see your spouse as been unique inside-out. There is power in imagination; the better the imagination (picture) of your spouse you have in your mind, the better your spouse will begin to become. Battle your mind and make it begin to see how wonderful your spouse is
See Solution Even When It Seems Hopeless.
When you develop the habit of seeing your spouse from God’s perspective, you will be able to see the solution when situations look hopeless. There is power in the spoken word, and words are controlled by thoughts. This is why God wants you to see your spouse based on who he said he/she is because it is going to guide your words, deeds and actions towards your spouse (Colossians3:17).
You are created in the image and likeness of God therefore, God expects you to see hope and solution when things are not going well in your marriage relationship. Learn to speak a solution like God; speaks what you want to see into existence. In the beginning, the whole earth was without form and void. God spoke it into shape. Jesus said Lazarus was sleeping; let’s go and wake him – up. See solution because in Jesus you can do all things (Philippians4:17).
Depend On The Power Of The Holy Spirit
It will be difficult to always see your spouse from God’s perspective without the help of the Holy Spirit. Your own strength, ability, and capacity cannot do it. You need help and that help must be from the Spirit Of God, the word of God, and fellowship with God through prayer. God wants you to depend on him in all things including your relationship with your spouse.
Marriage is divine as well as a mystery and everything about it is God’s idea, therefore it can only be operated using the supernatural enablement that comes from the Holy Spirit. Trying to operate a supernatural thing with a natural ability will amount to putting a square peg in a round hole. It will not make a good match. It is the Holy Spirit that has the answer to every “How” in a marriage. You can’t understand God’s purpose, intention and plan for marriage without the Holy Spirit, therefore, depend on him to help you to see your spouse from God’s perspective.
Be Careful Who You Hear From.
The type of association you keep, the information you get and counsel you receive will affect the way you perceive your spouse. Stop following the crowd. Be mindful of the counsel you take (from friends colleagues, social media, etc); they might destroy your marriage. Your marriage is better than some of those people that you want to take counsel from. Your marriage is unique. It is custom made just for you. Your wife was specially made by God for you and she is to satisfy you in all things. Your wife is unique. You cannot find her replica anywhere.
Stop desiring another man. Your husband is your perfect match. That thing you want from other men, your husband has the best of it. Adjust yourself to God’s demand and you will see that your husband is the best man that God has ever created. A whole lot of things are going to be in place if you can develop the habit of seeing your spouse from God’s perspective (Looking out for the best in your spouse.
To see your spouse from God’s perspective entails among other things the ability to see the solution in whatever that is going wrong in your marriage; to be positive-minded and have a positive expectation (18 For surely there is an end, and thine expectation shall not be cut off. Proverbs 23:18(KJV).
Be hopeful and be expectant. Speak solution and not complaining or murmuring. Act with the picture of victory in your mind. See your victory in Christ Jesus. Continue in it. Patiently wait on your expectations; it might take time, but patiently wait and continue to see your victory. In addition to patience, you must work in love. Faith works well in love.
There is a way that seems right to a man, But its end is the way of death. Proverbs 16:25(NKJV). Seeing your spouse in your own perspective will not help your marriage; therefore if you want to enjoy the best marriage relationship, you MUST see your spouse from God’s perspective
