Our marriages are constantly under attack. Once we say “I do”, the devil sets his sights on trying to tear the relationship apart.
The reason for this is that so much good comes from marriage. It’s the foundation of our society and the first institution established by God. What happens in our marriages usually filters down to the rest of our lives and it greatly influences our children.
The devil doesn’t want our marriages to succeed or give any sort of glory to God. So he fires shots at our relationships to disrupt it any way he can.
If you allow satan any sort of an opening, he will march right through it, guns blazing.
“In your anger do not sin”: Do not let the sun go down while you are still angry, and do not give the devil a foothold.
Ephesians 4:26-27 (NIV)
In this verse, it shows that anger towards our husband or wife is a huge opening for the devil to exploit.
When we go to bed angry at our spouse, we allow satan an opening into our marriage.
The word “devil” means “slanderer”. So satan will take that opportunity to suggest to us how bad, mean, or evil our spouse is. He accuses them of all sorts of things that make that anger even worse. Then upon waking up the next morning, the anger has grown.
The devil has just gained a foothold in that marriage. All he has to do is keep gaining ground a little at a time. Eventually, he will accomplish what he set out to do…destroy that marriage.
That is, only if we let him.
That’s not what God has in store for our marriages. And if we are aware of the devil’s tactics and counter them with God’s word, then we can have the successful marriages we desire. God certainly wants that for us.
