Keys To A Successful Marriage – Pastor David Ibiyeomie

1.Know that you have an enemy called satan.
Proverbs 4:23.
Every thing good infuriates satan; he uses unrealistic imaginations through pictures and thoughts to affect your marriage.

2. Have a dream for your family. A future without pictures is useless.
Picture the kind of family you want from scriptures. Your ability to overlook a transgression in a family is what guarantees peace.

3. Communication: Proper communication guarantees a successful marriage.
Make your spouse your best friend and personal confidant. Focus on the good qualities of your spouse and not their weaknesses; never compare them to anyone. Stay discrete about the problems you experience in your marriage. Never discuss your family problems with people who are incapable of solving them. Never betray a sharp confidence from your spouse with another. Never accept the report of others without hearing from your spouse. Never stay a day without communicating with your spouse especially when you are not together because regular communication is a proof of love.

4.Establish a family altar: Jeremiah 29:13-14, Have a specific morning routine for your family. Always reach out daily to God for divine assistance in prayers.

5. Learn to love: John 13:34-35, 15:12,17.
Always spend quality time with your spouse. Show love in words, actions and giving.
Love cares.
Love forgives.
Love is kind.
Love gives.
Love is Patient.

5. Talk about finance:
Set specific monetary goals with deadlines and details.
Every member of the family should be a tither and learn to give quality offering from childhood.

7. Make God’s Word your standard for living. God’s word contains the secrets for a successful Marriage. Your individual responsibilities are contained in God’s Word.
Ephesians 5:25.
