Marriage is the forging, by God, of two hearts into One – Quote by my husband Christopher Moss
The maker of heaven and earth created a union called marriage. A successful marriage is not a perfect marriage, the secret successful is in forging. When you look at the word forged you see the word heat, fire, beating and hammering.
Forged- make or shape (a metal object) by heating it in a fire or furnace and beating or hammering it.
What does the Lord want in this forging? Unity as one, which brings glory unto his perfect covenant. Like Christ and the Church a forging of unrepresented proportion is a darkness invader.
A Godly marriage is spiritual warfare no hands down, marriage is battle armor in the Kingdom of Christ.
Marriage is battle armor in the Kingdom of Christ.
Therefore put on the full armor of God, so that when the day of evil comes, you may be able to stand your ground, and after you have done everything, to stand. Ephesians 6:10-18
When a marriage is going through any difficultly, there will be times that the only thing you can do is stand on the word of God and just stand in his word as the storms come rolling.
Two pieces forged with hammering and heat is the helmet and sword, in the marriage armor, this hammering represent the word of God, get the word in your head and raise your sword and speak out the infallible word, for your marriage.
Helmet and the Sword- Take the helmet of salvation and the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God. Ephesians 6:10-18
As you stand in the word, you will need to forge the belt of truth, through the furnace of affliction. The breastplate is hammered to protect your heart as truth becomes a healing balm that will work its way through the heart and heal the wounds.
Stand firm then, with the belt of truth buckled around your waist, with the breastplate of righteousness in place Ephesians 6:10-18
Therefore confess your sins to each other and pray for each other so that you may be healed. The prayer of a righteous person is powerful and effective. James 5:16
As the truth works its healing. Then with feet fitted walk together with the testimony about the marriage battle victory to help others shape their armor for battle.
and with your feet fitted with the readiness that comes from the gospel of peace. Ephesians 6:10-18
One last piece of marriage armor is the shield of faith. Many arrows fly against a marriage. The arrows that penetrate a “throw in the towel mentality”. The family dynamic arrows that shoot their opinions and views. The arrows that shoot at your work life, children and health. By faith a marriage is to raise the shield of faith. As we read the evil one also has flaming arrows that are forged in fire, that is why the armor of marriage is vital in victory!
In addition, to all this, take up the shield of faith, with which you can extinguish all the flaming arrows of the evil one. Ephesians 6:10-18
