Harmful Voices in Relationships and Marriage. As children of God, God speaks to us like a father will speak to his children. When we listen to His voice, we will not get into problems. When we disregard His voice, we start listening to another voice. The moment we don’t flee or run away from that voice, we get into a serious mess.

God is good God. God speaks to us. The devil is a bad devil. He also attempts to speak to us.
That is why the scripture declares:

And when he putteth forth his own sheep, he goeth before them, and the sheep follow him: for they know his voice. And a stranger will they not follow, but will flee from him: for they know not the voice of strangers (John 10:4-5 KJV)

When we make up our minds to listen to God and fill our hearts with His word daily and consistently, we will not listen or take heed to the voice of the evil one. That is why the way Jesus refuted and refused to listen to the voice of the devil during the temptation was to speak out God’s word. Three times he was tempted, three times he said, ‘It is written…’ What if he doesn’t know what is written?

This morning, by the Spirit of God, I want to identify ten areas where we might have been listening to the wrong voice. It comes in subtle ways mostly.

The devil often uses people and situations to speak to us. We must be careful. Here are the people and voices the devil often uses.

Harmful Voices in Relationships and Marriage

1. The user’s voice

I can marry her, but I don’t have to be committed to her

2. The deceiver’s  voice

I don’t have to let my spouse know everything, or else the marriage can be jeopardized.

3. The religious voice

Everybody has a lover somewhere, God must accommodate that or we will all go to hell.

4. The foolish voice

As long as I have a prophet somewhere that I consult and pray for me, I can continue with my lifestyle.

5. The sensual voice

I am not sure of my spouse’s commitment. I can as well explore and also live my life.

6. The greedy voice

I can collect money from him to help my spouse. After all, it’s for the family. It’s for us and that can be a secret. If I don’t do it, we will be hungry.

7. The unbelievers’  voice

My family does not need Jesus. I have enough money. It is poor and hungry people that go around praying.

8. The self-righteous voice

I don’t want my family to be fanatical. We don’t have to go to church. The church is full of hypocrites.

9. The carnal voice

I serve God passionately and I give. But God knows that addictions cannot really go like that. I will keep on working on it and one day God might even give me a sign to stop.

10. The confused voice

The only way to keep this man married to me is to allow him to have his way with other ladies out there. As long as he doesn’t bring them home, he can do whatever he wants. Life is give and take, I can’t be policing him around, since he doesn’t disturb me from doing what I am doing.

Well, all the above statements are defective. If you or the person you are engaged with makes these types of statements, you might want to really seek help because they are defective statements indicative and symptomatic of deeper spiritual problems. They are belief systems that are sure to crack and leave you cracked. That will not be your portion in Jesus name.

If you are married, and one or more of the above seems to be the scenario, you will need to pray a lot for God’s help and intervention and then seek counseling as well.

In life, God has laid out His principles and when we deviate from them, things will not work out however we try because the scripture cannot be broken! In any way where you seem lacking, God will forgive, forget, redeem, and restore as necessary when you genuinely repent.

Why not call upon Him this morning?
