Walls and Gates by John Hagee

Walls and Gates by John Hagee

Psalm 147:13
For He has strengthened the bars of your gates; He has blessed your children within you

Rebuilding the broken border of a marriage relationship requires commitment and a willingness to change. It requires walls and gates.

What do walls and gates have to do with the husband-wife relationship? Walls and gates are distinct in their roles. They work together, but they possess different purposes. Walls protect, while gates act as points of access. Gates are pointless if the walls are broken down.

As children of God and as husbands or wives, we must guard the gates of our marriages. We are responsible for the things that we allow entrance. We also are responsible to escort out the things that bring harm.

We must ask the Holy Spirit to point out those things that need to leave and those things that we need to welcome. Perhaps bitterness or pain from the past has driven a wedge between you and your spouse. Maybe you are holding onto a grudge that weighs you down like a boulder. For some, it could be a behavior or a habit that eats away at the stability of your relationship.

Open up the gates to evict those things that can only drag down and destroy what God has planned for you and your spouse. Ask God to banish the bitterness, anger, and hurt. Ask Him to lift away the grudge or to deliver you from the habits that have a stranglehold on your marriage. Kick those things out of the gates and to the curb.

When you open the gates to escort them out, a wondrous exchange occurs. God ushers in His mercy, joy, peace, love, and renewed hope. When you welcome in the power and the strength of God, He reconstructs and builds up and refurbishes. He can give you – not just the marriage of which you dream – the marriage that He intends and has designed for you and your spouse. Open up the gates!


Heavenly Father, I realize that I need to open the gate. I need Your help to get rid of the pain of the past, the things that I am holding onto that drag down my marriage. I welcome You. Come in and provide all that we need to rebuild the walls and rehang the gates in our relationship. In the name of Jesus…amen.
