Is Your Marriage Covered?

Posted By
In Exodus 10:15 it says they covered all the ground until it was black. They devoured all that was left after the hail; everything growing in the fields and the fruit on the trees. Nothing green remained on trees or plant in all the land of Egypt. God’s work was not only for the sake of the generation of Moses and Pharaoh; it was also for your son and your son’s son. God does mighty works among us so that we can encourage and raise another. The Lord says how long in your marriage will you refuse to humble yourselves before Him. In all marriages there needs to be a covering whether a mentor, a pastor, a bishop; etc. We all need to be covered. God warned Pharaoh to humble himself or plagues would be upon him. Pride was at the heart of his problem and he wanted to do what he wanted without listening and giving into God. So many times we let pride get in the way to our problems and do not seek advice from the right source. Pharaoh wanted to allow some to go into the wilderness to worship, but to keep the women and children home as hostages.

A lot of times we look to ways to bargain with God and not have our marriage covered . Covered in prayer, Covered by not reading the word, Covered by not studying scripture, Covered by doing just any old thing that we want to do. God is not mocked and He wants your attention. There are certain times and seasons in your life that you need help. Despite all the things that Moses said to Pharaoh He still did not know the Lord God. Therefore, God would show him who He was. Do not let your situation leave you from being covered in the midst of the storm of the things that you are going through. All the plagues were happening for a reason. God did for Pharaoh what he would do in our lives; expose and overturn every false god. When we trust in everything else and not look to our God, He will show you who He is. He says, “Not a hoof shall be left behind. In other words; when you turn to Him all your bondage’s shall be left behind. Again, Is Your Marriage Covered? If not, get in covenant relationship with Him.

Here are 3 Steps on being covered.
1. Redemption-get yourself saved or delivered from a dire situation
2. Do the works of the Lord- When you choose to wait on the Lord, He will renew your strength. Waiting requires patience for His purpose in your marriage. Place your hope in Christ. Choose Life.
3. Find peace, purpose and strength with Jesus in prayer. Continue to pray daily all day long on the situation that you are going through and continue to pray for others.

Let us Pray; Heavenly Father,

We come to you seeking your face in prayer to be covered in our marriage and covering our families. Let me not be so stiff at heart like Pharaoh. we thank you for all you have done and continue to do in our lives and marriage. We come before you today, God, asking for a stronger bond of unity in our marriage covenant.
Father we ask that you will give us the ability to be a united front for you letting nothing come between us and my family.
Help us, Father to identify and work through anything that is not pleasing to you so we can continually reach higher levels of unity and have a covering daily in our marriage – spiritually, physically, and mentally. In Jesus Name , Amen.
