Hosea’s marriage and family didn’t start like most families. His marriage and family started off with adversity even before it began. But he obeyed and trusted God through it all.
Your marriage and family started off great but now it’s facing adversity and you’re thinking about giving up. Hosea could have easily used the start of it as an excuse but he didn’t never giving up and neither should you.
Hosea 1:2-3 (NIV)
2 When the Lord began to speak through Hosea, the Lord said to him, “Go, marry a promiscuous woman and have children with her, for like an adulterous wife this land is guilty of unfaithfulness to the Lord.” 3 So he married Gomer daughter of Diblaim, and she conceived and bore him a son.
3 The Lord said to me, “Go, show your love to your wife again, though she is loved by another man and is an adulteress. Love her as the Lord loves the Israelites, though they turn to other gods and love the sacred raisin cakes.” 2 So I bought her for fifteen shekels of silver and about a homer and a lethek of barley. 3 Then I told her, “You are to live with me many days; you must not be a prostitute or be intimate with any man, and I will behave the same way toward you.”
13 Greater love has no one than this: to lay down one’s life for one’s friends.
