Mountain Of Fire Daily Devotional For November 27, 2021 : Topic – The Holy Spirit In Your Marriage
TOPIC: The Holy Spirit In Your Marriage
BIBLE IN ONE YEAR: 1 Corinthians 12-14
FIRE SCRIPTURE: Ephesians 5:22-32
22 Wives, submit yourselves unto your own husbands, as unto the Lord.
23 For the husband is the head of the wife, even as Christ is the head of the church: and he is the saviour of the body.
24 Therefore as the church is subject unto Christ, so let the wives be to their own husbands in every thing.
25 Husbands, love your wives, even as Christ also loved the church, and gave himself for it;
26 That he might sanctify and cleanse it with the washing of water by the word,
27 That he might present it to himself a glorious church, not having spot, or wrinkle, or any such thing; but that it should be holy and without blemish.
28 So ought men to love their wives as their own bodies. He that loveth his wife loveth himself.
29 For no man ever yet hated his own flesh; but nourisheth and cherisheth it, even as the Lord the church:
30 For we are members of his body, of his flesh, and of his bones.
31 For this cause shall a man leave his father and mother, and shall be joined unto his wife, and they two shall be one flesh.
32 This is a great mystery: but I speak concerning Christ and the church.
MEMORY VERSE: “Wives, submit yourselves unto your own husbands, as unto the Lord.” – Ephesians 5:22
In marriages where the Holy Spirit reigns, peace also reigns.
PRAISE WORSHIP: Take a worship song as led by the Holy Spirit
PROPHETIC WORD FOR TODAY:
THE HOLY SPIRIT SHALL POUR HONEY INTO YOUR MARRIAGE, IN THE NAME OF JESUS.
A Christian marriage is a union between a man and a woman in holy wedlock with the approval of their families. Christian marriage forms the basis of a home where children are born and nurtured in the fear of the Lord. Marriage was instituted by God Himself (Genesis 2:18; Genesis 21:2-4).
The marriage institution is a joyful and good creation of God (Proverbs 18:22). You will enjoy your marriage when the foundation is built on God. Many married couples leave the Holy Spirit out of their marriage and so, they are having issues.
Attending marriage seminars, workshops, and so on is very good but you still need the power of the Holy Spirit to help you solve your marital problems. There are lots of challenges facing the home which you cannot battle successfully on your own. You need the Holy Spirit to help you build a cordial relationship with your partner (2 Corinthians 13:14).
The Bible says that commitment is very essential to a successful marriage. You can only be committed to your spouse through the help of the Holy Spirit. Unfaithfulness is an enemy of marriage because it breaks the bond of trust, which is the foundation of all relationship. You can deal with this enemy through the help of the Holy Spirit. Without the Holy Spirit, it will be difficult for a wife to submit to her husband and a husband to love his wife.
The Holy Spirit will help a couple to raise godly children because He is the Best Teacher. The Holy Spirit is the Author of unity, and when there is unity in the home, the family will be able to fight against forces that break homes. Make the Holy Spirit a partner in your home.
However, I advise that you repent if you or your partner has strayed away from the Lord. You also need to return to Him in complete obedience if you and your partner ever stopped following His manual and roadmap for a successful Christian marriage. The Bible says that if you are willing and obedient, you will eat the good of the land. Do you want the Holy Spirit to help and bless your marriage? Obey God’s word completely!
- Holy Spirit, incubate my marriage with Your love and power, in the name of Jesus Christ.
- Holy Spirit, help me to love my spouse as God loves me, in the name of Jesus Christ.
- Power that is assigned to put my marriage asunder, die now, in the name of Jesus Christ.
- Holy Spirit, I give You free access into every area of my marital life now, in the name of Jesus Christ.
- Holy Spirit, add honey to my marriage, in the name of Jesus Christ.
- Power that wants to turn my marriage into a battlefield, die now, in the name of Jesus Christ.
- My marriage will not lead me to hell, in the name of Jesus Christ.
