Marriage means spiritual warfare. As a wife, I’ve learned we must be ready at all times to fight for our marriages. You must be ready, alert, humble, bold, submitted to God and your husband. The way you battle is to:
✨Wear the full armor of God according to Ephesians 6:10-18.
✨ Pray continually. Be watchful and persevere by pushing through the thick of the battle. God will see you through it!
✨Speak God’s Word over your marriage and husband to wield your sword and cut off the influence of the enemy.
✨Stand firm on God’s Word.
✨Be unmoved by what you see in the natural. Walk by faith. Trust in God and HE will fight your battles for you and bring you to a victorious outcome.
In Christ Jesus, we are more than conquerors. Your marriage is worth fighting for, but make sure you are fighting in the Spirit in prayer. The wrong strategy is to fight against your husband because the devil– not your husband–is the true enemy. The winning strategy is to know that the battle belongs to God and He wants to see our marriages bring Him glory and prosper. Therefore, do not strive and try to win in by your own strength. Only God can see you through and restore a marriage deathblow that is the result of sin. Only God can retrieve a lost, prodigal from the enemy camp, so just trust Him to do what you cannot. Keep fighting and praying and believing for the victory!
“Then he said to me, “This is what the LORD says to Zerubbabel: It is not by force nor by strength, but by my Spirit, says the LORD of Heaven’s Armies.” (Zechariah 4:6)
