7. Commit to Clinging to God
Fighting the enemy together is so much easier underneath the protective covering of God. Couples who are first committed to the Lord, and then to each other, have the strength of three chords—and the Bible tells us that a strand of three chords is not easily broken(Ecclesiastes 4:12).
Cling to God first and foremost. Above your spouse, your children, and anyone else, cling to the Lord. When He is the One holding your marriage together, no one—including the enemy—can break that bond.
I cling to Your testimonies; O Lord, do not put me to shame! Psalm 119:31
As you fight the enemy together, keep in mind that it is mostly about standing still and abiding in the power of the Lord. No matter how the enemy is coming at your marriage today, stand together as a united front. In the name of Jesus, he doesn’t stand a chance!
