You only get the superhuman power of God if you adhere to and trust in and rely on it by sticking it out.
If you are going to give up on marriage because of trials, afflictions and difficulties then you don’t really need any “superhuman” power, do you? You just simply give up and walk away, in … “normal” human power.
And we also [especially] thank God continually for this, that when you received the message of God [which you heard] from us, you welcomed it not as the word of [mere] men, but as it truly is, the Word of God, which is effectually at work in you who believe [exercising its superhuman power in those who adhere to and trust in and rely on it]. (1 Thess 2:13)
That no one [of you] should be disturbed and beguiled and led astray by these afflictions and difficulties [to which I have referred]. For you yourselves know that this is [unavoidable in our position, and must be recognized as] our appointed lot. (1 Thess 3:3)
Surely in our age of reason, information and knowledge, we cannot be tricked into thinking that when God speaks of: afflictions, difficulties, pain, suffering, hurt, trials, tests and temptations, that He means that, they are going to happen in ALL areas of life and relationships … except marriage?
The pessimist sees difficulty in every opportunity. The optimist sees the opportunity in every difficulty.
