skenami commented on 10 Ways that Satan Loves to Watch Marriages Fall Apart:

Apr 18

It’s my first time joining any discussion online.  First I responded to Gerry, which felt like it was a prompting from the Holy Spirit.  Now I don’t feel like typing about what’s going on in my marriage after that word of advice I gave to Gerry.  Go figure, just being a human and thinking I could do this alone.  Anyways, this is my issue… My husband and I have been married for over 2yrs, and I could count in one hand or maybe two how many times we’ve been intimate since we made our vows.  Of course it didn’t start that way, but that’s another story.  Now within those times I did get pregnant and now we have 5 month old.  I’ve been fighting to stay in this marriage, but God insists there’s a break through.  We have been blessed in so many ways, but when it comes to our relationship it just yucky.  To get to my point without so many words I’m starting to hate him.  I don’t want to hate him cause I’m aware of the devils trick but the more I stay biblically grounded the more he pushes me to the edge.  He really doesn’t understand me and I guess what I’m doing now is just venting because I’ve isolated myself from the world, so now its God, my son and me.  What I’m asking from this community is to keep me in prayer because I’m aware the devil is trying to steal my breakthrough.  Peace and blessings to all, Skenami

Peace and blessings Gerry,  WOW!!!  I hope your husband has stop taking other women for coffee.  1 Peter 3:7(World English Bible ),
“You husbands, in the same way, live with your wives according to knowledge, giving honor to the woman, as to the weaker vessel, as being also joint heirs of the grace of life; that your prayers may not be hindered.”  God doesn’t take your husband actions lightly.  God knows our hearts, so your husband can tell you whatever excuse he wants but God knows whats truly in his heart.  The only person he’s playing is himself.  I would suggest for you to pray for him, since he doesn’t have knowledge of this, which makes him vulnerable to the trick of the devil.  Pray non-stop, and you’ll see the devil shakes things around more, but that just means that God is putting things in it’s right perspective. Gerry it isn’t easy, but with God first in your life he shall direct your steps to having a victorious marriage.  Remember when Jesus died in the cross it just appeared as things went wrong, but it was the start of the church we learn about today (The Good News). Now, we have the Holy Spirit dwelling in us helping us like an OnStar device (if you don’t know what it is goggle it, lol). If God is for you who could be against you?  May God give you the strength, enlightenment, and ability to go through this trail and come out of it victorious.  In return you’ll be able to help others from your testimony. Stay in prayer and hope for the best.  In the name and blood of Jesus we agree this will come to pass, AMEN.

Luther commented on Is “Addiction” Rooted in a Disease, Demon, or Decision?:

Apr 11

Suffering from addiction to both drugs and alcohol, and believe me it is suffering, I speak with an inside view. I see the points made
well in the above argument, however the author seems to make this problem a little too black and white. To be enslaved by any substance is usually at first a voluntary decision to indulge. However all bad decisions don’t infiltrate the soul such as substance abuse. Truly I now understand what Paul is teaching when he said “that which I hate, I do. It is no longer me but the sin which dwells in me.” The initial bad choice is rebellion against God, the following indwelling that occurs in so many of us is nothing short of demonic possession, which in turn requires Biblical solutions. I thank God that He has freely offered those solutions in His word. We must only believe.
