Why Hopelessness in Your Marriage is NOT Your Portion!
Today I asked God why are marriages under an all-time attack. The scripture that came to my spirit was “Two are better than One.. (See below)
“It’s better to have a partner than go it alone.
Share the work, share the wealth.
And if one falls down, the other helps,
But if there’s no one to help, tough!
Two in a bed warm each other.
Alone, you shiver all night.
By yourself you’re unprotected.
With a friend you can face the worst.
Can you round up a third?
A three-stranded rope isn’t easily snapped”. Ephesians 4:9-12
Married couples- the enemy is after what you can accomplish together!! He’s not concerned about you being in love. He doesn’t care about your well-being or your happiness. The thing that he wants is what your potential together can achieve. The enemy hates ACHEIVEMENT therefore he is the author of stagnation. He doesn’t want your life together to bless anyone!! There is an acceleration that comes with doing marriage God’s way. Ephesians tell us that you can SHARE the work together, you can help your spouse when he/she falls (it happens) and you can face the WORST TOGETHER!! That’s sounds very promising to me! J Let the perks of your friendship with your spouse work for your good.
I urge you to FIGHT for your marriage. Fight to walk together!! Fight to agree with God together! Fight to become better!! Understand that learning how to walk together doesn’t come overnight hence we have to unlearn what we’ve known marriage to be. It is a work in progress. It intel’s humbling ourselves under the hand of God. This means that you humble yourself in prayer and worship telling God that you don’t have all of the answers and to fill your heart with wisdom and strength. The bible says God “resist the proud but gives GRACE to the humble” (James 4:6). Grace is the ability to accomplish the things that you can’t do alone. You must remember that you CANNOT accomplish much outside of God’s help/will. If you do, it will be short lived. God gives us eternal stamina, eternal love and eternal strength in our marriages.
If you are feeling hopeless in your marriage remember you are not alone, we’ve all experienced this temporary feeling before. Hopelessness is a fragmented view created by the emotions and is based upon what you see and feel. The bible says that LOVE hopes all things. Hope is the fuel to endurance and it creates the RIGHT perspective about your spouse. My husband absolutely LOVES to know that I think and believe the Best about him even when the situation doesn’t appear promising. Hope works twofold. It’s working the right mentality in you and its helping your spouse understand and experience the love of God through your life.
Don’t give up!!!! Fight to become better and walk together in Christ and ENJOY the perks of having a companion in your life!
I am praying for you.
