Go and stand by your man.

“Two are better than one; because they have a good reward for their labour.” Ecclesiastes 4:9

I remember years ago while standing near the dinner table, I saw my husband with his head laid on the table. I was feeling frustrated and angry. He was feeling frustrated and angry. I heard thoughts from the enemy telling me I was better off alone. The enemy sounded like the rants of an angry and bitter person who was miserable and wanted me to be lonely and miserable too. But in the midst of all the emotions going on within me, I heard God’s still small voice say, “Go and stand by your man.” So I went and stood by him and we held each other at our side.

As I stood there next to him, a renewed love for him filled my heart and washed over me like a tidal wave. He was my man and even though he had his flaws and weaknesses that frustrated me–as I’m sure mine did as well–he was mine and I was his. In that moment, I decided that I would stand by him for the rest of our lives. This caused every voice of the enemy to immediately silence and the voice of the Holy Spirit to be heard loud and clear.

In every home the enemy is seeking to divide and conquer. He is busy trying to cause people to stand against each other instead of with each other. He appeals to our emotions and if we don’t know how he operates, we will let him turn a small problem into a really big issue. Let’s hear God’s wisdom today and not give room to the devil. Stand by your man and those you love. Yes, they have flaws, but so do you. Work through issues together and let nothing and no one divide you and cause you to stand on opposite sides of each other. You are stronger together than you are apart.

Prayer: Father, I pray for everyone in my home, that you will comfort and strengthen us like only you can. Help us to work through problems together. I plead the blood of Jesus over my marriage, over my children and my friendships. I bind the enemy and put him under my feet. He will not divide and conquer my home. I receive your wisdom and receive your help to walk in it. In the name of Jesus, Amen.

  1. Good Morning Sister Keisha,
    Thank you for the word. I will meditate on it as I deal with family issues. When we deal with family it becomes so personal. It is very hard to separate the person from the driving force (the enemy)
    that is behind the person’s action. The battle can become tiresome. I appreciate your devotionals, because it always bring me back to the truth. The battle is not mine, it’s the Lord’s. Have a great day wonderful women of God. ✝️

  2. Good morning, after I read your message I know exactly what I needed to do. I’ve been separate from my husband for the past 14 years and just before this pandemia set in, we were making plans to get back together, but since yesterday I wanted out. And just hearing your words this morning is God’s way of letting me know… its not time to give up, its the devil messing with my mind and I need to put him under my feet. Yes the battle is not mine, its the Lord. He have everything under His control. Amen… Praise the Lord
