The devil WILL attack your marriage. It is not a matter of if but when. Marriage is God breathed and the devil does not want your marriage to succeed. He comes to steal, kill and destroy. Don’t let him!
My husband and I have recently set goals to help us fulfill God’s plan for us and we also decided to lead a connect group (Bible study) for married couples in our home. It was almost instantly after announcing that to the group members that we started having this tension between us. It came from out of nowhere… or so we thought. One night it hit me that of course the devil would attack our relationship now because we have decided to lead this marrieds connect group. He does not our marriage to succeed and he DEF does not want a group dedicated to growing healthy and Godly marriages to succeed. So now that we are aware… we can rebuke the devil and choose to serve each other and Love each other as God Loves us… which we should always do anyways! 😉
When you take on new things that will help grow the Kingdom… the devil will attack your marriage.
My husband and I have decided to trust God with our finances. We have decided to not go into more debt. We believe that how we handle the first and the best is how God will handle the rest. If we give God the first of our “harvest”… He will bless the rest of it! It is all His to begin with anyhow! God has been faithful in this process and blessed us beyond measure. I really mean that! If you have never trusted God with your tithe on a regular basis… step out in faith and watch how He blesses your life beyond explanation! But of course… when you do this…the devil will attack your marriage.
It seems the devil has made money the issue for us lately. And we have realized that we need to make God the issue. We know that He will provide for us. We know that it is nothing we do that earns His blessings. The devil has preoccupied our minds with our financial goals. Now…our goals are Godly and will help us fulfill Gods calling on our lives BUT our FOCUS has been off and the devil was successful in misdirecting our energy in that area. It is a daily choice to wake up and trust God financially… but we choose to do it.
When you decide to trust God in the area of finances… the devil will attack your marriage.
These are the 2 areas I know we have learned a lot in the last few weeks. Have you ever noticed the devil attacking your marriage? What can we do to protect ourselves from his attacks?
Pray for your spouse. Pray together.
Choose to be better!
