I started writing on this topic about husbands and wives yesterday.
Yesterday, I looked at the following:
1. Refusing to pray together as husbands and wives
2. Quarreling day in day out
3. Being moody most of the time
4. Disobeying your husband
So, I continue from here today. If you missed yesterday’s devotional, you can read HERE
5. Not Loving Your Wife
So, I want to ask, why did you marry her if you are not going to lover her?
Living with another human being, especially a woman is such a lot of work!
For any progress to be, you have to love her.
As in LOVE her!
Your love for her has to be expressed.
Your wife wants to hear you say that all day and all night, and then go beyond saying it by doing tangible things to express that love.
Now, that can involve anything from buying her shiny things, they love shiny things, all the way to praying for her.
You’ve just got to love her, period!
6. Cheating on each other
Hey, don’t do that! As in why?
God is the witness in your marital covenant. You not only hurt your spouse when you cheat, you come under the risk of losing God’s support and favour over you and your home!
Now, that isn’t going to be a pleasant experience at all!
The consequences are too nasty and its not just worth it.
Job 31:12 (MSG)
Adultery is a fire that burns the house down; I wouldn’t expect anything I count dear to survive it.
Ask children whose parents cheated on each other, they would tell you of their travails.
Cheating on each other brings some accolades with it; self destruction, bloody nose, black eye, and ruined reputation.
Proverbs 6:32-33 (MSG)
Adultery is a brainless act, soul-destroying, self-destructive;  Expect a bloody nose, a black eye, and a reputation ruined for good.
If you find yourself cheating already, seek help.
And you know this thing begins in subtle ways.
Innocent flirting. Emotional flings. Avoid all of that!
The moment you start doing anything “innocent” with another person and you cannot share such with your spouse, they are after you already o!
Secrecy, non communication, and emotional withdrawal from your spouse will position you on the expressway of adultery.
You have to be strong, smart and spiritual.
They are coming after you not just because you are fine, but because hell is after your soul and your home.
The question is are you going to cooperate with the agenda of hell?
Or you are going to refuse the the traps?
Decide today. No cheating! Why?
It’s going to mess you and yours up. So there is no point!
All those demonic thoughts that someone is better, finer, more understanding than your spouse is all part of a grand slam to slam you out of your marriage and out of God’s plan for you.
So, make up your mind and ask God to help you.
Disconnect from all ungodly associations.
I pray for your marriage, God will protect and shield you.
Every help you need will come your way in Jesus name! Be blessed!
