Acknowledge the Holy Spirit In Your Marriage

Walk in the spirit and you will not fulfill the lust of the flesh. It is in marriage that you can best apply this scripture.
 
 
There will be many opportunities in marriage to fulfill the lust of the flesh. Our flesh wants to rise big time whenever our spouses do something that we consider unpleasant.
 
All works of the flesh as described in Galatians 5: 19-21 especially enmity, strife, jealousy, anger (ill temper), selfishness, divisions, envy can all be seen in marriages.
 
In marriage, we are tempted to pay back evil for evil, tit for tat and it is easier to go by the rule of a tooth for a tooth and an eye for an eye.
 
In marriage, it is easy to enter into strife, to be angry at our spouse and be bitter against them.
 
In my eighteen plus years of marriage, I have come to note that it is always easier to nip things in the bud before they get out of hands. It is always easier to apologize on time before things get out of hands.
 
It is always easier to talk things over than to let them linger and become bigger.
 
In Galatians 5:22 (Amp), 'But the fruit of the Holy Spirit (the work which His presence within accomplishes) is love, joy (gladness), peace, patience (an even temper, forbearance), kindness, goodness (benevolence), faithfulness, gentleness (meekness, humility), self- control (self restraint, continence)
 
When we allow the fruit of the Holy Spirit in our lives, the resultant effect will be a Spirit controlled marriage.
 
That is where the Lord wants us to get to. That no matter what happens or whoever it is that is at fault, we are Spirit controlled. Our lives are controlled and influenced by the Holy Spirit.
 
This can only happen when we begin to acknowledge the Holy spirit's presence in our lives individually. When we learn to put our bodies under and allow the Holy Spirit His rightful place.

CONFESSION FOR THE DAY
I am Spirit Controlled.
 
PRAYER FOR THE DAY
Lord, help me acknowledge the Holy Spirit's place in my life
 
THOUGHT FOR THE DAY

Gal 5:16 (MSG)  My counsel is this: Live freely, animated and motivated by God's Spirit. Then you won't feed the compulsions of selfishness.
 
ACTION PLAN FOR THE DAY

Begin today to acknowledge the person of the Holy spirit.
