Conflicts are unavoidable in marriage, not because of the devil; most times, we blame the devil for all conflicts in marriage. Couples need to understand that in the journey of marriage, there are different seasons of life. Each season of life comes with its challenges, pressure or battles, such that whether the devil is involved or not, you need to deal with the situation to make progress and have a great marriage.
Life’s changes come, seasons change, and challenges come. Young couples are in a season of life that has a period; when the wife gets pregnant and they have children, they are not dealing with just marriage now, but a family, and seasons change.
When couples have finished raising their children, they have concluded the work of parenting and have entered another season of life.
Be sensitive to different seasons in your life and marriage, especially when changes set in. It is a pointer to challenges and issues that may confront your marriage at your current level. Don’t allow the devil to take advantage of changes in seasons in your marriage to destroy your relationship with your spouse. The devil tries to administer the challenges that seasons bring to create problems, but when you have an understanding, you will not let the devil administer it; you will administer it yourself or through the Holy Spirit.
Conflicts are inevitable. Some conflicts come even though you don’t expect them to, and for some, you know in advance that they are coming. Understand this principle and administer appropriately every challenge or change in seasons that may trigger conflict.
PRAYER: Father, I receive strength and wisdom to deal with any challenge or battles triggered by conflicts in my marriage.
