5 Great Bible Verses to Help Strengthen Your Marriage

A few days ago I wrote this post about how marriage can be really hard sometimes. If we are not careful, the enemy can sneak up in there and tear apart something that was meant to bless your life and bring you joy. 

I fully believe that God has already given us the tools to make sure our marriage stays the blessing it was always meant to be. He speaks to us through His Word and encourages us with some incredible truth about who He is in the midst of those hard days. 

Coming up with a prayer strategy is an incredible way to uplift your marriage and fight the right battles to keep it strong. I wanted to share with you all some verses that help me regularly when I'm having a particularly hard day. Speaking the Word of God over my marriage places God in the center and builds up our lives to seek His will for us first.

So here are my five Bible verses that help to strength and grow my marriage!

"Bear with each other and forgive whatever grievances 
you may have against one another.
Forgive as the Lord forgave you."
Colossians 3:13

"But the Lord is Faithful,
and He will strengthen and protect you 
from the evil one."
2 Thessalonians 3:3

"I have learned the secret of being content in any and every situation,
whether well fed or hungry, whether living in plenty or in want.
I can do everything through Him who gives me strength."
Philippians 4:12-13

"Trust in the Lord with all you heart
and lean not on your own understanding;
in all you ways acknowledge Him,
and He will make your paths straight."
Proverbs 3:5-6

"And the peace of God, which transcends all understanding,
will guard your hearts and minds in Christ Jesus."
Philippians 4:7

Now, these particular verses may not say the word marriage in any of them, but I know that when I'm having a rough day I need some peace, and forgiveness, and strength. All these things God brings to me when I call on Him, and He can do the same for you in your marriage as well.

Are you struggling in your marriage? Are there days when things just seem too hard? Let us call on the Lord together to bring us peace, show us how to forgive, protect us from the evil one invading our marriages, and make our paths straight. And as always, if you ever need someone to pray with you, please feel free to email me whenever you need to. So much love my friends!
