Satan’s Lies | God’s Replies: Day 13 You Can’t Love Too Much

Satan’s Lie:

Family Relations: My wife might walk all over me if I “love” her too much!

God’s Reply:

So ought men to love their wives as their own bodies. He that loveth his wife loveth himself.

For no man ever yet hated his own flesh; but nourisheth and cherisheth it, even as the Lord the church:

For we are members of his body, of his flesh, and of his bones.
Ephesians 5:28‭-‬30 KJV

Let me just say this…

You can’t love your wife too much. It’s not possible. And the only reason she would walk all over you is…well…because you let her.

If she takes advantage of your love then it is her selfishness (sin) that is doing so and has no bearing on the depth of your love for her.

The devil hates marriage because of what it represents not only in the physical but spiritual as well. And he will use every trick in the book to undermine it and twist it.

The enemy is NOT your spouse. The enemy IS the devil.

I know first hand how the devil works day and night to destroy a relationship. And sometimes we may not like our spouse but we still love them.

But it because of that love that we forgive the offense and move on.

Be the husband God wants you to be.

Love her

Cherish her

Support her

Praise her

Guide her

Forgive her

Pray for her

Pray with her

Each and every day!

This is one of my favorite verses in scripture about how much we are to love our wives men…and it goes hand in hand with the ones above.

Husbands, love your wives, even as Christ also loved the church, and gave himself for it;
Ephesians 5:25 KJV

  1. I can’t speak for all women, but I know more women would be more whole if a man strived to be all these things. The more we show kindness to one another, the easier and loving the marriage. It’s sad when some women or men think withholding love is somehow a form of control over the other. This was an awesome post!
