be empowered. . .
No matter where you are on your marriage journey, there comes a time when the sizzle may begin to fizzle. Emergency! Is there a marriage doctor in the house? We need a resurrection here!
In the beginning, as newlyweds, we are so full of life and excitement. We want to give attention to our spouse everyday with intention to build a great marriage. It's like walking on the clouds!
Reality sets in and soon we are influenced by the demands of life like parenting and work which can cause us to get distracted. Our focus is no longer building a better marriage, but on other things that are constantly fighting for our attention.
Did you know your marriage is like a beautiful river?
A river must remain flowing in order for the water to sustain life.
When a body of water stops flowing, it becomes stagnant. Stagnant water is dead water.
Nothing can live in dead water. The fish die. The plants can't survive. Everything depends on the water source. Stop a river from flowing and you got disaster.
Did you know what you focus on becomes your habit?
Focusing on building a living marriage is found only in Jesus. He's the only One who can give you the living water to keep your marriage flowing.
Now on the last day, the great day of the feast, Jesus stood and cried out, saying, "If anyone is thirsty, let him come to Me and drink. Whoever believes in me, as Scripture has said, rivers of living water will flow from within them. John 7: 37-38
But whoever drinks the water I give them will never thirst. Indeed, the water I give them will become in them a spring of water welling up to eternal life." John 4: 14
Don't complicate this ladies. The focus is clear and simple.
Jesus said, for his yoke is easy and His burden is light.
Come to Me, all who are weary and heavy-laden, and I will give you rest. “Take My yoke upon you and learn from Me, for I am gentle and humble in heart, and YOU WILL FIND REST FOR YOUR SOULS. “For My yoke is easy and My burden is light.” Matthew 11: 28 -30.
Also, Jesus was bruised, wounded and pierced for your healing. That includes the healing and restoration of your marriage. Praise God!
But he was pierced for our transgressions, he was crushed for our iniquities; the punishment that brought us peace was on him, and by his wounds we are healed. Isaiah 53: 5
So how do you resurrect your marriage and keep your marriage alive?
Job 22:28 says, "You will also decree a thing, and it will be established for you.
A decree is an official order issued by a legal authority. In Jesus Name you have the legal authority to order your marriage to get aligned with the Word of God! You must decree life over your marriage. No matter what the situation looks like, speak life!
Jesus says, "The thief cometh not, but for to steal, and to kill, and to destroy: I am come that they might have life, and that they might have it more abundantly". John 10:10
James 1: 21 says, "Receive with meekness the engrafted Word which is able to save your souls.
2. Store up the Word of God in your heart.
As the little squirrel stores up nuts in preparation for a long winter. You must store up the Word of God in your heart and be ready at all times.
Proclaim the Word of God over your marriage.
-That your house shall serve the Lord.
Proclaim healing over your marriage.
-That God is working a miracle over you and your spouse.
Declare life over your marriage!
-Your marriage shall live and not die, says the Lord!
I will not die but live, and will proclaim what the LORD has done. Psalm 118: 17
Jesus said to her, "I am the resurrection and the life. The one who believes in me will live, even though they die; and everyone who lives and believes in Me will never die. John 11:25-26
