In marriage circles, it is extremely popular to claim “we’re standing for our marriages,” we’re “fighting” for our marriages. It is also a seemingly prevalent and universal issue that one spouse isn’t standing, fighting, or even consistent in his or her desire to battle for the marriage.
God wants to know how can you stand for, fight for, or desire to battle for a marriage when we don’t even stand on His Word and fight for our relationship with Him? We don’t even desire a relationship with Him. We don’t even engage the enemy in warfare in our own lives. If we can’t consistently pray and read God’s Word, how can we dare put pressure on a spouse to be consistent in his or her desire for us?
Change your stance. Your stand is on the Word of God. Your fight is for a relationship with God. Your battle plan is a spiritual plan. Your priority is on heavenly things. God will work out all other things in His timing, according to His will. Jené Elaine Walker
The enemy doesn’t have to study you hard or long to know your weak areas. Remember, we’re dealing with ancient evil. He knows “human nature” and “human proclivities.” Although we’ve grown so much spiritually, the devil knows our weak spots and the buttons that when pushed, will yank us out of the spirit and into the flesh. You know your weak spots too because the devil has been attacking you in that tender area lately.
Fight back. Fight back offensively. Employ two important offensive spiritual weapons now-prayer and the Word of God. Plan your battle strategy now. We have to have an end-times strategy because the devil is ramping up his attacks. Prepare for battle before the attack. God is a mighty man of war, Jehovah Gibbor. We actually get our war strategy directly from God. It is God who teaches our hands to war and our fingers to fight. Fighting is in your blood.
Psalm 144:1-2 AMP “BLESSED BE the Lord, my Rock and my keen and firm Strength, Who teaches my hands to war and my fingers to fight– My Steadfast Love and my Fortress, my High Tower and my Deliverer, my Shield and He in Whom I trust and take refuge, Who subdues my people under me.”
Pray. Turn that weak area over to God right now in the name of Jesus. Tell God to heal you in that area. Tell God to build you up in that area so that you are able to fight offensively before the devil ever attacks you in that area.
Stop letting the enemy catch you off guard. Prepare for the attack now in that problem area now. Begin to claim victory in that area now. Begin to speak, “my weakness is made strong.” “My problem area is now resolved.” “My tender spot is now durable in Jesus’s name.” Dr.J.
