1. Refuse to lose your joy

There is a connection between joy and marital fulfillment. The joy of the Lord in your heart is a connection point for God to do His will in your life.

Jesus said

And these things write we unto you, that your joy may be full. -1Jn 1:4 

Your joy is not full because something good happens to you, rather it gets filled because you constantly behold that which has been written.

Your marital life has been documented. It has been written. As you behold the word daily and constantly, God will cause your joy to be full.

Never allow the devil to steal your joy. Refuse to get depressed. Stay joyful!

2. Refuse to fear

Fear is a tool in the hand of the devil to control you and keep you bound.

There are people who fear and dread marriage, so they couldn’t find a spouse.

There are people who dread child delivery, so pregnancy eludes them.

Fear is not just a feeling, fear is a spirit! 

For God hath not given us the spirit of fear; but of power, and of love, and of a sound mind. -2Ti 1:7 

If fear is a spirit, then its operations are spiritual. It affects a lot of things spiritually. It determines a lot in the spiritual realm.

Do not fear is an admonition you will find in the scriptures over three hundred times.

Refuse that fear, because what you fear happens eventually.

For the thing which I greatly feared is come upon me, and that which I was afraid of is come unto me. – Job 3:25 

3. Refuse to compromise

The pressure to compromise is real and constant.

The devil wants you compromising a hundred times per hour if possible. He knows that compromise short-circuits the power of God in your life.

Sin and compromise without repentance give the devil the legal ground to afflict you. Habitual sins opens the door to the hordes of hell to wreck havoc.

The power of sin is broken, and the scripture declares that

For sin shall not have dominion over you: for ye are not under the law, but under grace. – Rom 6:14 

Iniquity has been conquered, it has no longer a tyrannical rule over your destiny, it is a choice! And you must choose right!

Jesus told the woman caught in adultery, Go and sin no more. His voice is still reverberating across generations and it remains unchanged!

Do not be like Esau who preferred a temporary fix over a permanent blessing. Do not make yourself an enemy of God because of five minutes of lust expressed.

Do not cut off yourself from God’s favour and benevolence because of pacifying your flesh.

To be continued…

I receive strength to do it God’s way

Oh Lord, help me to live above sin

For sin shall not have dominion over you: for ye are not under the law, but under grace. – Rom 6:14
