Matthew 18:19-20: "Again, I tell you if two of you on earth agree about anything you ask for, it will be done for you by my Father in heaven. For where two or three come together in my name, there am I with them.”
You will hear the above scripture again and again from Jerry and me. We believe making Jesus the Lord of our lives and then agreeing together in prayer not only brings God's presence to our home but we also see answers to our prayers.
It's no surprise that Satan tries often to get married couples to disagree and become irritated with each other. He knows the power we have if we walk together in unity, and according to 1 Peter 3:1-7 our attitudes and actions towards our spouse can actually hinder our prayers.
Satan is a strategist and works hard to get us upset at each other. He knows just what buttons to push. He knows our strengths and weaknesses, and is patient with his plan, working behind the scenes to bring division and strife.
Your spouse can make a simple mistake and Satan will try to convince you that he/she did it on purpose just to hurt you. In reality, your mate may not even know he/she has offended you.
The sooner we learn to recognize how little things can bring big division, the better off we will be! Let me challenge you this week to recognize those things that try to derail your life and home and refuse to give into the temptation to argue! Instead, join together as a couple and agree with each other in prayer, bringing the presence of God into your home!
