How God Sent An Angel To Save My Marriage

   

BBEDMF Worried Businesswoman

God, really is the bedrock of every marriage. Without God, no marriage, I repeat, no marriage can survive.

I discovered God in the early years of my marriage. I never really took all those ‘witches and wizards’ story seriously until I got married. Hmmm, I then realized that as God unites, devil is always looking for ways to scatter a home, and this devil uses human beings as an entry point into the supposedly blessed or sanctified home. How does the devil do this? Through doubts, fears, conflicts, mistrusts, infidelity between couples. What I am trying to say is that, once there is a crack in the marriage or home, the devil gains entry.

It was about 9 months after our wedding, I and my husband were always having one quarrel after the other. I knew deep down, that our marriage wouldn’t survive the 1st 5 years everyone always talked about, or so I thought.

I cannot exactly remember what caused our heated argument (one never really knows) but it usually borders around MONEY! All I remember saying and doing is that I was leaving my home with my son and ending this marriage for good. (Oh, my goodness! Little did I know the devil was ecstatic!) All my husband said was, “If you step out of this house, don’t bother coming back!” And so, I called up my parents to send the driver that would help pack my things and that of my child! They obliged. (You see that? The devil operates even outside). When the devil goes all out to destroy what God has built, it has no limit.

I got to the office and I didn’t tell anybody that my marriage was over. How do you begin to tell people that kind of ‘good’ news! Besides, I really wasn’t in the habit of sharing my marital stories with my girl folks.

I continued my work aimlessly until it got to the last client. It was a ‘deeper-life’ woman with her 16 year old son. As soon as she came in with her son, she sent him out! I was about to protest her actions, when she said, “Go back home!” I looked behind me to see if she was speaking to someone else in the office. I was the only one. I don’t remember mentioning that I had left my home.

“Go back home, my child”, she pleaded. “They are trying to push you out of the marriage. They are trying to destroy your marriage!” I wondered who ‘they’ was.

“If you leave, they will succeed” she continued.

“Are you a Christian? Do you believe in God and what he can do?” I nodded. At this point, I was completely dumb-struck, like I was in a trance…listening obediently without argument.

“When you go home, make sure you pray in every corner of your house and sprinkle holy water or anointing oil as well. Do not leave any part of the house out”, she instructed.

“God bless you my child”. And with that, she left.

I suddenly felt this overwhelming peace and calm. My work had ended for that day. So, I immediately set out to carry out the instructions.

It was about 6:00pm when I left my office. On the way, I called my husband. I asked him where he was and he said he was still at his office. I told him I would meet him at home. I had about 1 hour to do what I needed to do.

God being faithful, allowed me get home in 30minutes. I did exactly what the ‘angel’ instructed me to do. I prayed like I’ve never prayed before at every corner of my house and sprinkled holy water as well.

My husband came home shortly after that, and wanted to say something. I refused, we had to pray first. We held hands and prayed. Do you know that till date, we do not know how that ‘evil’ came upon our home and we haven’t bothered talking about it.

By His grace, we have spent over 8years together and we haven’t quarreled to the extent of abandoning our marriage.

    Going through something similar in my marriage right now, but holding on tight. Sometimes I just want to let go when the situation is slipping off my hand, but I stay strong. He is always saying I should leave his house before he gets back from work, though I use to tell him to put my luggages out himself but now when he says that, I tell him that he will not meet me at home, but I ve never left. Its been 5 years plus now. I cry, always want to be strong.

    Yes the devil can always try. Do u know why? Marriage is instituted by God for the benefit of man and the glory of God. That’s why Satan would always try to cause rows between couples. Most successful courtship would witness a quite different personality once marriage commences.

    Satan does not fight irrelevance. The devil understands the bond and victory of peaceful marriage. My prayer is that couple would always view each case through the eyes of God. How would God see what I am about to say or do is my watch ward.
    It has not been easy at all but with God all things shall fall in pleasant places. Hold on sisters.

    I am in a very similar situation but in my case he is already getting violent. We’re only two years in , at the moment I’ve been advised to go back and keep praying. But to be sincere I fear for my sanity. I wonder where the line should be drawn, some people go through this and later come out with testimonies while others loose their sanity and even some their lives. I really hate to see my daughter witness all these troubles.

    I really really like this story. Thank God for the angel. I can never understand why marriages are under so much attack. May God continue to strengthen and keep all His ordained marriages in Jesus name, amen!
