After Wedding Declarations to Speak Over Yourself and Your Spouse

8 Biblical Declarations to Speak Over Your Marriage Daily

Declaration of Faith: I declare proverbs 31 over myself that I will do my husband good at all times, and I will not engage myself in idle talks that will cause him any harm. I will allow the Spirit of God to lead me daily, and I will not mislead my husband into disobedience against God. We will both walk in love in obedience to our God, and we will enjoy our union together.

Marriages are a part of God’s plan for human beings. He settles the lonely in families, establishes communities, and he repopulates the world. Then, when wedding bells ring, we commit to honouring God with our bodies as we step into God’s plan for our lives. We also step into the unknown spiritual territory of spiritual attacks against marriages, self-sabotaging behaviours and statistical reports that can end a marriage in divorce in the first few years. If we’re going to defy these reports and overcome those attacks, then we will need to fortify our union with prayers and daily declarations. If not for any false alarms or superstitions, but for the mere known fact that the first few years after a wedding can be quite tricky to navigate, we ought to stay prayerful and claim God’s truth for our families.

We often speak out loud words that we shouldn’t say about ourselves unconsciously. We do this when we don’t know the truth about our identity in Christ, and when we follow the crowd to belong. Although we live in the world, we are not of the world, and we cannot simply blurt out loud that which we perceive as the reality when it is actually a false perception from the enemy.

Imagine going for a job interview but you don’t proceed to the next stage of the interview for any reason. Does that make you lazy, dumb or stupid? No, it does not. That rejection experience simply exposes you to a better way of performing in the next job interview. Let’s not allow the enemy to make us believe otherwise.

Combat Low Self-Esteem

Negative experiences in life do cause Christians to suffer low self-esteem. Dealing with trauma, loss – loss of a child, loss of a job, loss of a family, negative thought patterns, previous bad choices, unrealistic goals, body image are a few of those negative experiences. This may be harder even on matured Christians. You may begin to wander and wonder; has God forgotten about me? You may even begin to ask God some questions, God why? Why did this happen to me? Why me and not somebody else? etc. Continue reading “Combat Low Self-Esteem”
