The Breastplate of Righteousness

“God has created marriage for the divinely appointed purpose of exercising dominion over the sphere of your world where you have responsibility and influence. As a couple, you are to influence those around you rather than be influenced by the world.” Tony Evans

Father, You tell us that when we pursue You and Your Word, our minds will be transformed and renewed. We will then be in a position to discern what is your righteous will for us. But when we neglect Your presence and Your Word, it is easy to be conformed to the unrighteousness of this world. God, enable us as a couple to seek You every day, whether it’s in our conversations with each other, during times that we pray together, text messages that we send each other—in any number of ways—let us be a reminder to each other to renew our minds in Your Word.

We know that when our minds are attuned with Yours, the unrighteousness of this world will stand out. We seek to live by that standard, and not the world’s. Guide us into Your purpose each moment of each day. In Christ’s name, amen.

Romans 12:2
