How to Grow a Powerful Marriage

To have a blessed supernatural marriage, you must know and do the things in the rulebook of God’s Word. It’s that simple, yet so many couples think that their lives will be too boring or too demanding. Living under the supernatural covering of God’s blessing guarantees the strength and wisdom to overcome temptations and difficulties.

A marriage that is not plugged into and connected to God is one that sooner or later will experience a meltdown and the attacks of the enemy.

What attacks? Indifference, lukewarmness, control, manipulation, ego problems, small white lies, insatiable desires, mistrust, suspicion and all the things the enemy uses to bring. All these evil qualities are rooted in disobedience and self-will.
