Stand by those you love.

“Two are better than one; because they have a good reward for their labour.” Ecclesiastes 4:9

While standing near the dinner table, I see my husband with his head laid on the table. I’m feeling frustrated and angry. He is feeling frustrated and angry. I hear thoughts from the enemy telling me I am better off alone. The enemy sounds like the rants of an angry and bitter person who is miserable and wants me to be lonely and miserable too. But in the midst of all the emotions going on within me, I hear God’s still small voice say, “Go and stand by your man.” So I go and stand by him and we hold each other at our side.

As I stood there next to him, a renewed love for him fills my heart and washes over me like a tidal wave. He is my man and even though he has flaws and weaknesses that frustrates me, he is mine. I decided in that moment that I will stand by him for the rest of our lives. This one move alone caused every voice of the enemy to immediately silence and the voice of the Holy Spirit to be heard loud and clear.

In every home the enemy is seeking to divide and conquer. He is busy trying to cause people to stand against each other instead of with each other. He appeals to our emotions and if we don’t know how he operates, we will let him turn a small problem into a really big issue. Hear God’s wisdom today. Don’t give room to the devil. Stand by those you love. Yes, they may have flaws, but so do you. Work through issues and let nothing and no one divide you and cause you to stand on opposite sides of each other. You are stronger together than you are apart.

Prayer: Father, thank You for Your wisdom. I pray for everyone in my home, that You will comfort and strengthen us like only you can. Help us to work through problems together. I plead the blood of Jesus over my marriage and family, over my children and loved ones. I bind the enemy and put him under my feet. He will not divide and conquer my home. I receive Your practical wisdom and choose to walk in it. In the Name of Jesus, Amen.
