Anointing for Marriage

The church as a whole seems to have  swung the pendulum all the way over to the wait until you hear from God to ask someone for coffee in years past, and I believe as a whole, we’re trying to recover from over spiritualizing marriage and how people are to connect and involve God in their romantic relationships. There’s been tons of progress in this area, which is very encouraging!

If you’ve read any of my blogs or seen any of my videos, you know I’m super practical when it comes to making a wise decision concerning marriage. I’ve seen too many of ‘the one’s’ end in divorce. With that said, though, I believe in God’s anointing in regards to marriage and I believe He’s releases a greater level of this in 2016. Once I made a decision about my husband, the prophetic began to flow around our future, but it was not until the decision was made that His momentum came. God honors our decisions when they’re done in wisdom and with Godly input.

Also, I needed to take practical steps forward for God’s momentum to join me in this journey of relationships. Once I decided to not just be a sitting duck and participate with God in a journey towards love, He began to move. Just like every other area of life! For more on this, you can read my story here.

(Luke 4:18-19 NKJV) “The Spirit of the LORD is upon Me, Because He has anointed Me To preach the Gospel to the poor; He has sent Me to heal the brokenhearted, To proclaim liberty to the captives And recovery of sight to the blind, To set at liberty those who are oppressed; {19} To proclaim the acceptable year of the LORD.”

What is anointing? Boiled down, it’s Holy Spirit.  I’ve been captivated by God’s presence and anointing lately because it touched a very personal area that I’ve been believing Him for recently in an incredibly powerful way. I’ve come to appreciate His anointing or presence to a new level and believe that God wants to anoint connection into marriage relationships.

Anointing can be looked at similar to oil in a car. When a car lacks oil, it’s only a matter of time until the engine will burn up. It’s dangerous for anyone in the car or around the car. But, the purpose of oil in the engine is for things to run smoothly and without struggle. We use oil for cooking because the food won’t get stuck when we use it.

God gave us the person of the Holy Spirit for things to be easy because He already finished it all and did the work.  That’s what heaven in its fullness is, no pain, tears or death with fullness of joy and ease and perfect relationship with God and others. Our job description is to bring heaven to earth which includes perfect relationship through Christ with the Father. As Christians, we all have Holy Spirit, it’s when we partner with Him in all things that the things of daily life gain ease. Do I understand why at times there’s more of an anointing for a certain healing or area of life? No. Do I understand why some things are so hard even when I’m believing for God’s ease in an area? No. All I know is that when His presence and power come, everything changes. When His anointing comes, things that would normally take years happen in a moment.

So, I believe that God’s anointing for marriage is in this year of 2016. We get to partner with Holy Spirit practically and with wisdom. I believe that right relationships do have an ease to them. Does that mean you don’t hit hard stuff or questions? No. I believe it means that His peace and presence help guide you through that, but you have a sense of His peace, ease and Presence throughout the relationship.

I’m feeling so strongly to declare the ease of heaven over marriage connections for those who have been faithful to take steps this year. There’s many who have done the daily practical work of allowing His healing and wholeness into their lives and now His anointing can land and bring acceleration without struggle in this area of relationship.
