LORD works in mysterious ways to restore & redeem Mankind. HE is the only one who can make all things new1* and beautiful2*. HE assures that promise in every possible way through out the holy bible.
Enemy works openly and it is evident to the saints and people of GOD. When the Adam and Eve ate forbidden fruit their eyes were opened to the world in the Garden of Eden, little did they notice that their spiritual eyes were closed. They no longer understood the language of the animals or the nature or the angels. They were crowded with doubts/questions/worries & so called knowledge of the world.
When you are in Christ, the LORD with the help of the Holy spirit opens up the door to understand the happenings & secrets of the spiritual realm and once you can understand the plans of the enemy it is easy to fight and win. At least, when you win you can be sure that the victory is not because of you but because of the Everlasting Emmanuel and the LORD of the host who is holding your right hand3* and has promised not to forsake you4*.
When the enemy attacks the holy institution of Marriage. Struggle and Fight is real. There are so many sins and temptations against this holy institution.
Enemy sends his adversaries. Only the strong ones sustain. Especially in ones in Christ.
What he does to the marriages?
1. Too much of anything
In the name of love, being a control freak, being possessive doesn't help a marriage. That kind of spirit is from the enemy. Know that Love is unconditional.
1 Corinthians 13:4
Trust and Faith are the building blocks of your relationship. The moment you start doubting there is no end to it. When you practice putting your complete faith in GOD and HIS promises. You are practicing a trustworthy and loving relationship discipline which will get extended to your spouse, parents and your dearest friend.
Forcing your spouse to do things your way. LORD has bestowed each individual with unique character, talent and outlook. As long as the foundation is built in the value of Christ, the individual can operate in any Christian faith-based institution smoothly. You will find how the LORD beautifully plug the individual in their role.
And then the enemy thinks thru it and set up a trap in the name of "Temptation" my heart sinks as I type this...How many marriages has fallen into this trap...
Dear GOD,...Dear Jesus...How many fights and stikes....Lets discuss that openly and casually in our next post. (Yes, "OUR" post....We are in this together my sisters and brothers)
