Why are the words we speak in our marriages so important?
Every time we speak over our marriage we are speaking words that will bring death or life into it. This is why it is so important to have the right confession over our marriage.
This does not mean that we ignore the problems, this means that no matter what is going on with our marriage we choose to speak life and love filled words over it. These words are seeds that are going to reproduce after what we have spoken.
The most important affirmation we need to speak over our marriage
If you want to have a successful marriage this is what you need to start confessing over it:

Simple right? But what you are confessing is very powerful.
The God kind of love is the best one. Just to give you an idea here are a few characteristics of His kind of love:
- It’s patient

- It does not act improperly
- Thinks no evil

- It’s not ambitious

How amazing it would be to have this kind of love in our marriages!!!

- Because The Word of God says that with God all things are possible.
Be patient and endure
Remember it all starts with a seed. It all starts with your words.
Even if this is not the kind of marriage you are experiencing right now, start declaring that you have a 1 Corithians 13 kind of marriage.
