The Seasons of Difficulty by John Hagee

The Seasons of Difficulty by John Hagee

Matthew 6:6
But you, when you pray, go into your room, and when you have shut your door, pray to your Father who is in the secret place; and your Father who sees in secret will reward you openly

In our marriage relationships, we will experience seasons of difficulty. Hurt will be inflicted. When two imperfect people unite, it is not unusual for friction to arise and damage to occur.

When damage has diminished our relationships, we must evaluate the issue privately. We must consider the role that we played in the rift, as well as the responsibility that we have to repent and reconcile with our spouses. Respect the intimacy of the marriage relationship; do not share issues haphazardly with those outside.

We need to take a journey of self-examination to understand the issues. We need to ask the Lord for wisdom and guidance. His Word and His Holy Spirit are best qualified to resolve marital issues.

What caused the walls of Jerusalem to be reduced to a pile of bricks? Internal neglect! When the Israelites walked away from God’s promises and neglected His covenant, the Babylonian enemy swooped in and destroyed the walls and the city.

We have an enemy, too. Satan prowls about like a roaring lion seeking whom he may devour (I Peter 5:8). When we do not keep God at the center of our marriages, we open ourselves to attacks and destruction.

We must choose to work with those we trust – those who talk to God more than others, who have no personal agenda but to seek God’s will for our marriages, and who have more experience than us. They live where we want to go and can help us build the marriages we desire.

When damage occurs and the walls of our marriages are breached, God will provide the tools that we need to repair and restore. Walls can be rebuilt with humility, wisdom, and love.


Heavenly Father, thank You for my marriage. Please forgive me for inflicting hurt and damaging the walls of our relationship. Grant me the humility, love, and perseverance to repent, make restitution, and rebuild. In the name of Jesus…amen.
