Declarations for a Strong Marriage

Want a strong marriage? I’m sharing declarations you can say for a strong marriage.  These declarations are for who you are in marriage, declarations to speak over your husband, and declarations for the success of your marriage.

This one is packed full of words to life.  It doesn’t matter whether you have a healthy marriage or you are struggling.  My challenge to you is to declare these statements over yourself, your husband, and your marriage for the next 30 days and see what happens.  Let’s get started!

DECLARATIONS FOR WHO I AM IN MARRIAGE

I prioritize my husband higher than myself. I honor him in my thoughts and words, tone of voice, and facial expressions. 

As Romans 12:10 says, I am devoted to him in brotherly love, give preference to him in honor. 

Acknowledging that my husband needs to be king of our home, to conquer, and to be the one in charge, I respect him.   I tell him, “I like you and I respect you.  I believe in you.  You can conquer this.  Thank you for all of your hard work.  Being your wife is an honor.”

No more will I use my words to nag, criticize, or put down my husband. 

I understand that we are all on a journey, learning and growing. 

I, too, am learning, growing, and changing for the better.

My heart is for my husband.  Instead of using my words to manipulate him and to change him into who I want him to become, I choose to use my words to encourage and speak life. My words bless him.

Each day, I look for opportunities to show encouragement, respect, and affection for my husband.

DECLARATIONS FOR GREAT COMMUNICATION

Instead of letting my ego get in the way,  I listen well, not interrupting him, thinking I know better.

I clearly communicate what it is that I want.  I do not hint, expecting my husband to know what I am thinking.  For example, I say, “Honey, I would like to go out for dinner Friday night to __name of restaurant__.  Would you like me to make the reservations?”  Or “Honey, would you be willing to __name the task__ before Saturday?  I would appreciate that so much.”

I am quick to call out the funk, the nonverbal communication, and the strife when it shows up.  We commit to moving toward each other not away.  We’d rather prosper and stay in unity.  I call the miscommunication out in love, saying, “I could be wrong about this but I sense that you are feeling disrespected by my words or my tone of voice.  That is not my intention.  That is not my heart.  What I was trying to say is that….”

We keep short accounts, coming together to resolve issues rather than stifling it or holding it in.  I ask God for wisdom as to how to bring up the concern in a way that would be received without offence. 

Proverbs 15:1, Ephesians 4:29, James 1:19-20, Proverbs 17:14, Proverbs 13:10

I am humbled to make things right when I mess up.

I remember that I am an example to our children of how I treat my husband.  They are watching.  And most likely they will treat their husband as they have seen me treat their father.

DECLARATIONS FOR MY HUSBAND

My husband is confident, walking in his assignment, and strong belief in who he is in Christ.

He has the mind of Christ.  I Corinthians 2:16

He has favour with God and man everywhere he goes.  Luke 2:52

He is a doer, not just a talker.  God blesses and multiplies the work that he puts his hands to.  Deuteronomy 28:12

My husband makes wise decisions for our family, lovingly taking the lead.

He is financially successful and he is protected from impulsive buying.  He saves, invests, and spends with the thought of our future.

Scriptures for your finances: Psalm 35:27, Psalm 46:10, John 6:35, Psalm 34:10, Luke 12: 15 and 23, Isaiah 45:3, Proverbs 11:28, Psalm 84:11-12, Isaiah 32:16-17

He is a generous, cheerful giver.  II Corinthians 9:6-8

My husband makes time to be alone with God.  He speaks healing and life. 

He hears God’s voice and follows God’s directions in His life and for our family.  Psalm 25:12-13, Psalm 31:3, Psalm 32:8, Proverbs 4:11-13

He uses God’s Word to call into existence what is not yet.  Romans 4:17-18

He is full of faith.  He knows that faith works every time and he uses his faith to move mountains our family faces. 

His prayers are not hindered because he seeks to understand and honor me as his wife. I Peter 3:7

Matthew 11:22-24, Matthew 21:21-22, Romans 4:20-21, Ephesians 3:11-12, John 16:24, Luke 11:9-10, Matthew 7:7-8, John 14:13-14, Psalm 84:11, James 1:17, Matthew 18:18-20, John 15:7

He is an incredible father and husband who is faithful and full of integrity.

He is quick to ask, “How may I help you around the house?”  He demonstrates teamwork to our children.

DECLARATIONS FOR THE SUCCESS OF MY MARRIAGE

We have an awesome thriving marriage.  We are more in love today, more committed to each other today, than we were the day we said, “I do.”

Together, we can overcome challenges. There is a solution and victory on the other side of this challenge.  God makes mountains into roads and raises roads.  With God, we can run against a troop or leap over a wall.  Isaiah 49:11   Psalm 18: 29-32

We do not believe lies that our marriage might fail.  God believes in us and our marriage.

We break any assignment against our family that is meant to steal, kill, or destroy.  John 10:10  No weapon formed against us will prosper.  Isaiah 54:17  We are covered in the blood of Jesus.  We are His children.  We are in His kingdom and protected by His angels.  Psalm 91

Jesus meets our needs whether that be a limitation I have, an unresponsive spouse, and the need for provision or health.

We thank God Who always leads us in His triumph in Christ.  We pray that our lives and our marriage are a testimony of God.  Our lives and our marriage manifest the sweet aroma of the knowledge of God in every place we go.  For we are a fragrance of Christ to God among those who are being saved and among those we are perishing.  II Corinthians 2:14-15

We invite Jesus into our marriage.  We dedicate our marriage to God and choose to acknowledge Him in all that we do.  Proverbs 3:6

How Strong is Your Marriage?

I pray these declarations encourage you.  Remember that life and death are in the power of your tongue.  Proverbs 18:21  So speak life over yourself, your husband, and your marriage.

Hey, Mama.  You may be satisfied with your marriage, and it’s perfect.  You are already doing everything right. But maybe not.  Maybe you are struggling in your marriage.  I get you because I wrote in my journal in July 2012, “Ugg! I have never felt so low before.  How did we get like this? So unhappy, so messed up!”
