Overcoming The Storm Of Life In Marital Life (Part 2)

overcoming marriage stormsHi Jesus loves you.

Today, this article gives the concluding part of the above topic. Storms are real but the good news is that you can overcome them. As a couple in Christ, you are well equipped to win the battle. Remain one, spirit, soul and body, and your victory is assured.

Two are better than one; because they have a good reward for their labour. Ecclesiastes 4:9 (kJV)

Again I say unto you, That if two of you shall agree on earth as touching any thing that they shall ask, it shall be done for them of my Father which is in heaven. Matthew 18:19 (KJV)

7.          Declare the scriptures to that challenge and every wind of doubt

You will always have what you say. The storms of life and doubt have ears and will only disappear when you command them to do so according to the word of God. It is also a proof of your faith in God and His word.

8.       Refuse to listen to any comment contrary to God’s word.

The enemy will test the strength of the word of the Lord within you through people; even people with good intentions will be used. Your response to their comments will determine the intensity and duration of the storm.  Also, the enemy will try to steal the word in you because it is a weapon that will destroy his power over you and give you victory.

9.       Call yourselves names that emphasize the victory you would want to see

God changed Abram’s name to Abraham to reflect His plan to make him father of many nation. Also Jacob’s name was changed to Israel to reflect his new status with God. You have to call those things that be not as though they were for them to be. For example if the issue is barrenness, call one another daddy and mummy.

10.       Listen for God’s direction on what next to do

The Alpha and Omega knows the end from the beginning; he sees beyond what your eyes can see and has the solution to those challenges of life. Therefore, seek God’s face for the appropriate steps to take.

11.       Read books and listen to CDs related to the solution you desire.

Some people have gone through that storm of life in their marital life and prevailed. Discover what they did to overcome through their stories. You gain speed and time by riding on the victories of others.                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                

12.       Go for godly counsel and help, if and when necessary.  

In the multitude of counsel, there is safety. As you are led by God go for counsel or help, and that may include medical help.

13.       Support one another 

Two surely are better than one. You need to strongly support one another spiritually, mentally, emotionally and otherwise during this storm of life in your married life. It is not a time for both of you to go your separate ways but a time to draw much closer to one another.  The enemy can never succeed where there is strong unity, no matter how long he presses; surely he will give up.

14.       Remain patient, hold on and refuse to quit

Truly, it may take a while but your victory is sure if you faint not.  Put in mind that your victory today is another couple’s victory tomorrow. It is not all about you!

15.       Give thanks to God for answered prayers yet to be manifested.

You are to believe that you have received the answers when you pray. Thanksgiving unto God before you see your desired outcome is a catalyst for answered prayers. It is also a proof of your faith in God and His word. Thanksgiving puts the enemy to flight and the Lord to action.

Like every storm, this storm of life will pass too. Night may endure for a season but morning will surely come, bringing with it overflowing joy.
