Yes, I mean you talking to your marriage.
Your marriage became a living entity the day you walked down the aisle and stood before a priest to declare those marriage vows.
It became recognized in heaven, on earth and in hell as a living institution.
Like every living thing, your marriage can hear your voice and respond.
The truth is that it can hear other voices also, but your voice supersedes every other voice.
Other people may be speaking negative things to and about your marriage, speaking its destruction, its struggles, lack of peace, unity, love, lack of break through, malice and all sorts.
But not you!
That is why we should watch those we talk to about our marriage.
The question now is, ‘What are you saying to and about your marriage?
The future of your marriage is in what you are saying consciously or unconsciously to it.
No weapon that is formed against thee shall prosper; and every tongue [that] shall rise against thee in judgment thou shalt condemn. This [is] the heritage of the servants of the LORD, and their righteousness [is] of me, saith the LORD.
It is God’s design and will, that no weapon against your marriage shall prosper.
Every thing contrary to your marriage must give way, as you super impose the judgement written.
You are a priest over your marriage.
Every couple should have scriptures, what God has said and good things they confess and declare about their marriages.
These declarations should cover all areas of the marriage.
You should learn to speak out loud what you want to see, not your present situation.
Your declaration should cover, your spouse, your finances, your career, your sexuality, doing the will of God and every area that has issues per time.
Your declaration has a way of ensuring all things work together for your good in the spirit realm.
Declare this over your marriage, but this is in no way exhaustive:
My marriage of born of God. It overcomes the world and every negative thing that rises against it.
My marriage is blessed. My husband/wife is blessed.Our differences do not cause issues among us.
We understand each other perfectly because God gives us supernatural understanding. My spouse is my best friend.
The love of God that is marked by giving surrounds and overwhelms our marriage. I decree and declare and speak peace into my marriage. Peace, spirit, soul and body.
I speak prosperity, help and mercy into my marriage.No one can stand against us because God is with us.
My spouse and I are happy and it is well with us in Jesus name I declare, Amen
Wow. You would have done well speaking like this every single day over your marriage.
This is how we fight for our marriage, with our words.
God bless your marriage
Confession of the day
My marriage is blissful. I enjoy days of heaven on earth.
Prayer of the day
Lord, help me to always keep speaking to my marriage
Thought of the day
