Why You Need to Keep the Lines of Communication Open

By: Jenifer Metzger

Did you know that Satan loves when we argue with our husbands? He loves it when the lines of communication with our husband are closed. He feeds off of those times when there is turmoil in our marriage.

Satan does not want to see your marriage last. He does not want to see your marriage happy. He does not want to see God in the center of your marriage.

"The thief (Satan) does not come except to kill, steal and to destroy..."
John 10:10

Satan comes to kill your marriage.

Satan comes to steal your marriage.

Satan comes to destroy your marriage.


Why You Need to Keep the Lines of Communication Open #marriage #marriagemonday #communication

Not only does Satan love it when you and your husband are in a disagreement or are not speaking to each other, but he also uses that time to tempt you. He whispers to you things like, "I bet her husband never treats her that way," "her husband is so attentive to her while your husband ignores you," "you'd be better off without him," "you are your own woman, don't take that from him." Satan loves whispering lies into your ears. He wants to draw you away from your husband.

Sisters, when those times of discord come in your marriage, don't let Satan win!  Don't let him whisper lies to you. Take the thoughts from satan captive and command that he leave you alone! You have that power in God to stomp Satan to the ground!

Go to your husband in love, use gentle and kind words. If the lines of communication are not open, try a kind gesture to show your husband how much you love him, then get to talking.

"Be completely humble and gentle; be patient, bearing with one another in love.
Make every effort to keep the unity of the Spirit through the bond of peace."
Ephesians 4:2-3

Let's keep satan out of our marriages and let's keep the lines of communication wide open.
