Most couple makes mistakes when it comes to battle In their homes or marriage. Some believes most of the problems in their marriage are spiritual.
Therefore, they spiritualize every problem in the home. They associate all problems in the home to spiritual attack. On the other hand some people do not really believe in the activities of the devil attacking the home (Christian home).
“Finally, my brethren, be strong in the lord and in the power of his might. Put on the whole armour of God that you may be able to stand against the wiles of devil. For we do not wrestle against blood and flesh, but against principalities, against the rulers of the darkness of this age, against spiritual hosts of wickedness in the heavenly places”. Eph. 6:10 – 12 this scripture confirm that there are spiritual battles that confront Christians in life.
There are two major battles in the home. It can either be physical or spiritual. Physical battles are problems between a husband and his wife when one fails in his/her duties. In this case, it is not a spiritual battle. What you need to apply is the principle of success in the marriage.
On the other hand, there are other aspects of battles that may arise in a Christian marriage due to spiritual attack to disturb peace, progress, joy, unity and love of that home.
Satan attack Christian’s homes and marriages in other to hinder breakthrough and create barrier of intimacy, so that their breakthrough can be delayed and this will give room for the enemy to penetrate and afflict them with poverty, affliction, barrenness, and confusion. If care is not taken, it can leads to death and calamity.
What do you do to win spiritual battle?
Firstly, couples must acknowledge the realities of spiritual battle in their family, and they must be ready and willing to be free. Then it will be possible for them to fight the battle and be free from the oppression of the enemy, because they have power through the blood of Jesus Christ to cast out the devil. They have been given the authority to overcome Satan and all principalities and powers. In the book of Ephesians 6:12-18, we are told to take up the whole armour of God, that we may be able to withstand the devil. And taking the shield of faith which you and I will be to quench all the fiery darts of the wicked one. Reading and meditating on the word of God daily and praying in the spirit with all perseverance.
Secondly, knowledge is very IMPORTANT in the spiritual battle of your home. Knowing the origin or source of the spiritual attack will help you to counter attack by prayer from the source. Because without smoke there will be no fire.
Thirdly, there must be a heart of repentance and confession of all past sin or involvement in demonic activities. Counseling also may be necessary through your pastor or ministers of God that understand the preaching of the cross very well.
In conclusion, unity and agreement between couples that is husband and wife is very IMPORTANT if spiritual battle must be won in their home and family. “Again I say to you that if two of you agree on earth concerning anything they ask, it will be done for them by my father in heaven.
I pray that God will give every Christian family VICTORY OVER power and principalities fighting our marriage, home and family in Jesus name. Through his blood, we can overcome and quench all the fiery darts of the wicked one in our family in Jesus name.
