What is required in order to live a Godly marriage? Ephesians contains a section on living wisely. Wisdom is knowing what to do, how to behave, how to live. Within this context is a short section on marriage, the responsibilities of the wife and of the husband. It requires godly wisdom in order to fulfill these responsibilities.
12 I know how to be brought low, and I know how to abound. In any and every circumstance, I have learned the secret of facing plenty and hunger, abundance and need.
13 I can do all things through him who strengthens me.
A wise man once told me:A successful life does not consist of the ability to do what you want to do, when you want to do it. It does not consist of having what you want whenever you want it. A successful life is enjoying doing what you ought to do. When you learn to enjoy doing what you ought to do, you will have a successful life.
In 2 Corinthians, God is the focus of the triumphal procession, via Christ in us. By way of the disciples of Jesus Christ, living as His agents acting upon His will, the sweet fragrance of the knowledge of Christ is manifested in every place.

In order to eliminate confusion and uncertainty, it is helpful to understand the enemy that is working to destroy liberty.

When secret, hidden evil is revealed, it can provoke emotions in us, such as anger, disappointment, and grief. Although these emotions may be appropriate human responses, they are not to dominate us. Manage the emotiions and get peacful.
Once there is greater clearity regarding the decline of America and liberty, it is appropriate to peacfully pursue a thoughtful, spiritual response. Those who live by the faith of Jesus Christ have a responsibility to endure these challenging times to perform God's will, not our own will. Start by praying for our country, and our local communities; seek the welfare of your local community. As you walk by the spirit, do whatever God inspires in you.
