Marriage is to be enjoyed and not to be endured.
Yes, you can have disagreements, but you shouldn’t allow it to last longer than necessary.
Why is this so?
1. The Peace in your home will be lost.
When you are at war with your spouse, it brings about confusion and bitterness.
When you are annoyed and not ready to settle or forgive, it opens up more doors for all other evil works like malice, unforgiveness, wicked thoughts and the likes to come in.
Look at James 3:16
For where envying and strife [is], there [is] confusion and every evil work.
Where there is strife, confusion and every evil work will manifest.
You don’t want it to linger on, because what you don’t expect to happen, begins to expand into a bigger problem.
2. The union of PRAYER will be Affected:
Areas where you and your spouse can work together, pray together and achieve things together would be hindered.
See, there is a lot that can be achieved in praying together with your spouse.
Bible says in
Matthew 18 :19
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.
IT SHALL BE DONE FOR THEM, IF YOU AGREE TOGETHER.
Now imagine the union of marriage where two of you are ONE.
Why won’t your prayers be answered?
In fact, it would be answered faster.
When you pray with your spouse, you can overcome your challenges faster.
The Devil frowns at the union of marriage, so take advantage of it and don’t let the devil take over your home with fighting, malice over every week.
Make a conscious effort that there won’t be any form of strife in your home, God willing, then you would see how effective prayers can be.
3. It opens up areas for the DEVIL to come in.
When you fight unnecessarily, you open ways for the devil to come in.
That is when you would see another man or woman attractive, at the expense of your marriage.
You begin to seek solace in another woman’s arm. That can lead to Jeru trip, that you didn’t plan.
Be wise and try to settle that disagreement before it gets a hold of your house.
4. Communication and Bonding will reduce: Fighting reduces bonding and communication between partners.
You don’t want to talk with each other, you deny yourselves Jeru trip and reduce the bonding, you start seeing yourselves as flatmates, than partners.
Jeru trip should be consistent so that love and bonding can flow in.
The more, the better.
The more, the merrier.
The more, the happier.
Your marriage will work.
