One of our Readers asked this Question.

How exactly does Satan destroy families?    I've heard it said many times that satan is out to wreck marriages and families. I'm not denying this  and I realized that the unseen spiritual battles that surround us as Christ Believers are very real but I don't have any clear idea of precisely how the devil might try to undermine my family. 

  Can you help me? What kinds of things should I watch for?

The Answer

1 Cor 10 vs 12 says.. He that think that he stand, take heed, lest you fall" and also 2 Cor 2 vs 11 says... for we are not ignorance of the devil's devises...

 Dear Readers, The possibilities for satan to penetrate into Anyone's home or family are endless either Christian home or not.. Take for instance. 

- He can induce husband or wife to put too much emphasis on career or to spend too much time pursuing material things without knowing his/her family is under devil's attack. Mathew 13:24-30

- He can use your spirituality to manipulate you and destroy your marriage if he discovered that your knowledge in God's word is not clear to you enough. Or when he knows that your knowledge about God does not cover your family. I always advise couples to nurture their spiritual life with balance knowledge of God's word. If Satan sees the loophole, he will attack in many ways.1 Cor 10 vs 12

- He can introduce envy or jealousy or dishonesty into couple's relationship or entice one of them to be unfaithful to his or her mate which will break the Spiritual connection of the family.Gal 5:19

- He can wait until the fire of romantic love begin to fade and then plant whispers of doubt in their minds about the wrong chosen of marriage partner. 1 Cor 7:5

If these strategies don’t work, satan can use greed, lust, pornography, drug or alcohol addiction, to drive a wedge between them. Satan is very crafty and manipulative in nature. He can stir up rebellion among the kids or incite the couples to blame one another for their children’s social problems or academic failures. Matthew 26:41

-  This one is very Strong if the aboved mentioned doesnt work. He can employ rivalries between wife's friends and husband and vice versa or rivalries between relatives of both couples or rivalries between in-laws just to bring out the worst in your marriage and destroy it. Eph 6:10

  Dear readers, Once that hairline fracture is introduced into the foundation of your family, it’s only a matter of time before the entire structure starts to crumble unless you take steps to reverse the process in " Prayer and Understand that is based in knowledge of God. We have God’s promise that satan will flee from us if we’re savvy to his wiles and have the gumption to resist his tricks (James 4:7; 1 Peter 5:8, 9).

Six Things the Devil Wants for Your Life and marriage. 

1. For you to doubt God

In John Chapter 20 vs 17 - end,  

The disciples shouted that they had seen Jesus raised from the grave, but Thomas’ doubt kept him from believing in the miracle of salvation. Jesus appeared to Thomas and said, “Stop doubting and believe" When the devil tempts you to doubt God, don’t let your circumstance determine your God not matter how important such thing can be. But rather let God determine your circumstance.

2. For you to live in fear

As Couples and Christ Believers you must know that fear is not the absence of faith, it is the misplacement of it. Do not allow anyone to instil fear in you through any means. Couples, if your family alter is not fuel with prayer and with God's words, is just a matter of time for the family to break. The devil want to rob you of your faith, he wants your faith to be lifeless. Life in Christ is life not in fear! Pslam 34:4 says, “I sought the Lord, and he answered me; he delivered me from all my fears."

3. For you to feel insecure

Coupls should take this one very Serious.   Don’t let the devil tell you, either through your friends, parents, neighbors or social media that you are unloved in your marriage or that your partner is too low for your class or level.You are God’s handiwork and, in Christ, we are not only good enough, “we are more than conquerors through him who loved us" Eph 2:10, Rom 10:34.

4. For you to avoid the church or Gathering of True Believers

The more uninvolved you become with the body of Christ, the harder it is to persevere in your faith. It isn't easy to follow Jesus in a world that doesn't value the truth. As Couples, never be unequally yoke with the unbelievers. It might even be your parents or best friends. Guide your family away from them and stand on your faith as couples. Sometimes, couples might experience this if married from another faith. Remember that when we leave the community we were made for, we are might be devoured 1 Cor 12.

5. For you to be led astray

“Watch out for wrong advise or wrong prophecy and wrong mentorship. Couples should have trust in each other. This will save them from going astray. When satan focus your family he can use anybody and anything to wisper something that will lead you astray into your mind. Many will come to you in sheep’s clothing, but inwardly they are ferocious wolves" Matthew7:15. When we rely on the words of men or ourselves in place of God’s Word, we can lead others away from Jesus and be led away from His truth ourselves.

6. For you to fail

The devil wants to destroy us. He wants Christian family to settle for what the world has given us and accept our lots. 2 Chorin 4:8-10 says, “We are hard pressed on every side, but not crushed; perplexed, but not in despair; persecuted, but not abandoned; struck down, but not destroyed. We always carry around in our body the death of Jesus, so that the life of Jesus may also be revealed in our body.”  When you feel like you’re going to lose, take heart, Jesus already won for you!

Don’t want to be devoured? Couples guide your home and fight to protect it at all cost" John 20:27. God bless you
