God made declaration about the purpose for marriage in the beginning of the Bible.

Voice Translation Genesis 1:26, “Now let Us conceive a new creation —humanity— made in Our image , fashioned according to Our likeness. And let Us grant them authority (over all the earth —the fish in the sea and the birds in the sky, the domesticated animals and the small creeping creatures on the earth.”

Notice that God gave them authority. That word means the ability to rule and reign. That authority was diminished at the fall, but Jesus came to give us back all the authority that Adam lost. Yes, troubles will come. But with the presence of God helping you, His will is that you overcome every trial. One of the keys to victory is your power to pray and claim God’s promises together.

Ecclesiastes 4:12 Though one may be overpowered by another, two can withstand him. And a threefold cord is not quickly broken.

Your power goes up when you are in unity together. But it is exponentially higher when you have 3: you, your spouse, and the Holy Spirit.


Identify a challenge you are dealing with in your marriage. Find a scripture to stand on and pray about it together. Invite the Holy Spirit in to give you wisdom on the steps you need to take.
