It is with such Joy, Hope and Faith that we continue to pour into you and your marriage continuing with Day 18! We have received many thanks and updates from couples who are being changed and motivated to “stick” with these points. It has been a joy to share these ~ 21-days of “Marriage Points of Power”©~ anted to pour into you today showing you 21-days and make a conscious commitment to move in a direction of Faith and expectation as God shows up in and through their marriages. We truly believe that Marriage is not only an intricate part of the “faith” kingdom, but those who choose to stay and walk in the godly principles that Marriage represent, will reap rewards that are more tremendous and more beneficial than anything on this earth can compare.
The last 17 days have been filled with uplifting points, and our prayer is that these encouragements and suggestions are changing your lives in and through the same places that they are changing ours! We hope that you will use these suggestions, to make your marriage mean the best to you both. We are not shallow and know that there are plenty, if not the majority of you that feel the pressures of a fall in communication, or periodic silence between the two of you, or even children that have taken the place of where a spouse should land in love. Know this, everyone here at iCleave Ministries is here in your corner rooting for your Marriage, don’t give up! So, here we are Day 18………..
Be still. Trust the Process. Know the Power. Yes all of these are words to live by, but who knows what you are really feeling when you are in the midst, God does! God created your Marriage for a purpose, family was created to motivate and maturate the kingdom purpose, procreate, and build a foundational truth that is a vertical and horizontal relationship with God at the center of it all. Choose today, to truly surrender your marriage to all that God has designed for your married love. There are no ideas, updates, text messages, date nights, vacations that God is not aware of, He knows all that you both are walking in as Husband and Wife. Learn that God is in and through it all. 15My frame was not hidden from you when I was made in the secret place, when I was woven together in the depths of the earth. 16Your eyes saw my unformed body; all the days ordained for me were written in your book before one of them came to be. 17How precious to me are your thoughts, God! How vast is the sum of them! 18Were I to count them, they would outnumber the grains of sand— when I awake, I am still with you. ~ (Psalms 139: 15-17)
Honest, Trust, Patience, and a whole lot of Faith is needed to make your marriage work. Nothing or no one can take the love that God created for you both as husband and wife and create a chaotic platform except you. Pray over your covenant daily, trust God’s leading and surrender your thoughts and your dreams for one another to God. God already knows what your married love will yield and He understands the patience and truth that it instills in the generations that will be affected by your decision to allow God to transform your marriage into what He wants it to be. Will you give it to Him? Start by praying for your husband/wife, every day. Speaking over his/her life in a way that only you can. You spend the majority of your time with your husband/wife, so why wouldn’t you be one of the 1st person(s) to pray for him/her. Begin today by speaking over her/his gifts, by speaking a healing word over his/her body. Ask God to show you how you can start motivating her/him in a way that is pleasing to His will. Let God use you and your words today friend. God is ready to speak through you for your married love. Surrender.
Be patient with one another, trusting that you both are from two separate walks of life joined together to make this Marriage a success. Yes, trust may be a factor, past failures may be present, but God is still in the miracle working business, have you prayed for your husband/wife with a whole “surrendered” heart today?? Take a moment and decide that you can’t fix her/him in your own strength, you must trust God’s omnipotent power to transform your love today.
We are here rooting for you both! These points are to be used as daily exercises of Faith so that you will be moved to transform your married love. If you are at a place now where there are no bumps in the road and you are happy and blissful, how about saying a prayer for those who may not be. Remember……
~Marriage, it’s not just a ministry it’s a movement~
