Why all the talk about conflict in marriage?

Everyone knows that married couples fight. So what?

Well — it is very important that we make our marriage a safe haven, and eliminate strife and discord so that there is unity in the marriage, which produces strength, and powerful purpose in accomplishing our life’s work!

If you have time, here are some scriptures and thoughts to meditate upon today:

  1. There is an enemy who wants to destroy Christian families. Who is it? Ephesians 6:12, I Peter 5:8. Why would the enemy want to destroy your marriage? Malachi 2:15 Do not give him ammunition; what is your greatest defensive strategy? Ephesians 4:26-27
  2. We need to be able to pray effective prayers to accomplish God’s purposes in our lives. Did you know that prayers can be hindered when there is conflict in marriage? I Peter 3:7. If we act in a manner that causes our husband to become disrespectful toward us, what does that cause to happen?
  3. There is a work for you and your husband to accomplish together. Why are two better than one? Ecclesiastes 4:9-12 What tools do we have to fight our enemies? II Corinthians 10:4, James 4:1-10)

Today, this Lord’s Day, spend some time meditating on the power available to a married couple who agrees together in unity for the protection, provision, and power of their family. Be strong in the Lord, and in the power of His might! (Ephesians 6:10)

I’ll be praying for you,
