Counseling Couples

I've had the intense privilege of helping to coach a few couples this past week. Among many thoughts and Scriptural principles talked about, spiritual warfare is a prominent factor.

While couples, people are subject to the spirits and schemes of the enemy, we must ALL be accountable for our sins and sinful behavior. Leading people to repent of their sins first and then renouncing the work of evil they've allowed is critical. There is a spiritual attack on our marriages because it is called a covenant - a covenant of promise that reflects the covenant we have as children of God, through Jesus!

2 Corinthians 10:3 For though we live in the world, we do not wage war as the world does. 4 The weapons we fight with are not the weapons of the world. On the contrary, they have divine power to demolish strongholds. 5 We demolish arguments and every pretension that sets itself up against the knowledge of God, and we take captive every thought to make it obedient to Christ. 6 And we will be ready to punish every act of disobedience, once your obedience is complete.
