With a new year ahead of us, I think it’s a good idea to resolve to get more of the Word while strengthening our marriages. I believe the following scriptures will help whenever an issue comes up or if you just need encouragement. I recommend meditating on one monthly, in any order.

When you don’t know what to do about your situation.

Hebrews 4:16 “Let us therefore come boldly to the throne of grace, that we may obtain mercy and find grace to help in time of need.” Don’t be afraid to go to God.

When you feel like you can’t take anymore.

Isaiah 41:10 “Fear not, for I am with you; Be not dismayed, for I am your God. I will strengthen you, yes I will help you, I will uphold you with My righteous right hand.” Let God be strong where you are weak.

When you are concerned about the state of your marriage.

Philippians 4:6 “Be anxious for nothing, but in everything by prayer and supplication, with thanksgiving, let your requests be made known to God.” Don’t be afraid to ask the Father anything

When you wonder if your prayers are being heard.

1 John 5:14-15 “Now this is the confidence that we have in Him, that if we ask anything according to His will, He hears us. And if we know that He hears us, whatever we ask, we know that we have the petitions that we have asked of Him.” You gotta have faith.

When you want to know if you can confide in some of your friends and family about your marriage.

Proverbs 13:20 “He who walks with wise men will be wise, but the companion of fools will be destroyed.” Ask for discernment, not everyone has your best interests in mind.

When you are having a hard time controlling your words.

James 3:8-10 “But no mane can tame the tongue. With it we bless our God and Father, and with it we curse men, who have been made in the similitude of God. Out of the same mouth proceed blessing and cursing. My brethren, these things ought not to be so.” Think before you speak, you cannot take back words.
