As we work with couples at some point in time we usually need to remind them who the enemy is. As in, “The enemy is not each other. It’s Satan. Remember, you are a Team of Two. You’re wearing the same color jersey – he’s not wearing white and you’re not wearing red – you’re BOTH wearing the same color!”
If you have to get up every morning and remind yourselves of that – please do it. It’s worth it. You may have to look at each other and say it aloud, “You’re not my enemy! You’re my teammate!” Pretty soon, you’re going to believe it again. And once more you’ve resisted the devil who has to flee.
