Where do we often go wrong in Christian marriages? It’s not the doubting, the arguments, it’s the comparing. We compare our family to another Christian family. The marriage you have is God ordained. Don’t envy. Don’t desire what others have. AND don’t feel inferior.
Proverbs 14:30 A sound heart is the life of the flesh but envy the rotteness of the bones.
Proverbs 27:4 Wrath is cruel and anger is outrageous but who is able to stand before envy. —- Powerful!
The grass is not always greener on the other side. They had their own journey to go through in order for them to get that green! If we want our own to be green, we need to water the grass and nurture it.
Everyone is different and so is every marriage. Each has it own testimony and we need to be aware of that. I wouldn’t want my testimony to be the same as yours! I want mine to be unique, powerful, and glorifying unto GOD! Accepting God’s plans for your marriage will bring fullness of joy. We look to Him for guidance and the Holy Spirit that’s working in and through the both of us! Don’t scrutinize your marriage but rather rejoice in what He’s doing and about to do. We all crave for a perfect marriage, yes how selfish of us, we won’t be getting that instead we’ll get a godly marriage. What God ordains, He sustains. Do you believe that? I pray so!
Lord I pray that you will protect my marriage from the snares of the enemy . Shield it from our own selfishness, neglect, ungodly desires, satan’s lies and deceit that has caused us to believe about our marriage. I rebuke any jealousy that may arise! Remove our past hurts, heartaches, brokenness and fortify our marriage that it may be vibrant so it’ll glorify you, O Lord! Amen!
