Satan Attacking My Wedding
I am getting married in less than three weeks. Ever since my fiance and I set the date, it seems that satan has launched an all-out "war" against us.... sickness, anxiety attacks, thoughts of doubt, etc. Is this because satan hates marriage, especially between two Christians?

Wow Michelle! Of all the millions of Christians in this world he is attacking you, personally????
Think about it.
Satan gets far, far, far too much credit for stuff that is just life. People get sick at inopportune times. Including before getting married, taking a new job, the day of a critical exam etc.
Having anxiety and doubt about the most significant decision of your natural life? Sounds like the human condition to me.

Its not satan,don't try to shoehorn him into everything. the feelings you have are normal for people who are passing from the single state to a married state. you have lived your whole life as 'you' and now you have to consider 'us' a state of acceptance of feelings and views beyond your own. you will be bonded with another person and your individual strengths, as individuals in christ, will be unified. you become more than 'you'

Michelle, you mentioned on another blog that your wedding was in 4 days. I just calculated it to be that upcoming Saturday.
Congratulations!!! Married in your blue jeans?! How funny and delightful at the same time. Deligtful, because you understood that, though you intended to wear a beautiful gown, the act of marrying was the real reason you were there and you could be in any attire. I applaud you for that...and for waiting to consumate things. ;)
God bless you both, Michelle. Take care!

AlwaysOn, I just realized in hindsight that I never said when my wedding day was in this blog.... how did you guess my exact wedding date? You were exactly correct.

Thanks for remembering Alwayson! We had a blessed day in spite of Hurricane Ernesto. I was half-hour late for my wedding because I had to drive at the last minute to pick up my Mom due to a mixup. I didn't have time to change into my dress and got married in my blue jeans! It was funny. I'm sure God has a sense of humor! Let me also take this opportunity to say that I am SO GLAD that my husband and I waited until our wedding night before consumating our relationship! It is a very special moment indeed.

How did your wedding day turn out, Michelle (it was this past Saturday, right)? Congrats to the two of you and I trust that you have a wonderful future ahead!

Why would Satan want to stop couples from getting married? He loves when people fall into misery and suffering. Just a bit of humor.

All these is not coming from satan, it is coming from you and others that are nervous. Satan doesn't want to stop you from getting married, he wants to destroy you, believe it. Every mistake you make comes from you, every temptation you get comes from satan, and everything good comes from above. Choose God and everything good will happen.

Things happen to us that we can't explain and we turn around and blame Satan. this is just life. the same as someone saying my car broke down, Satan must not want me to go anywhere. that is hogwash. Things is going to break down. Just like life, things are going to happen, nothing more.

For someone to say "why would Satan attack you" is silly. Satan goes after the people with a high spirit level. 2 Christians getting married would be a perfect example. He doesn't care about the people who are not close to Yahweh and Yahshua. Remember, we are at war with the invisible, not the visible.

Well put, Bruce.

Michelle, if you are a Christian, then you KNOW we are in a WAR. "The weapons of our warfare are not carnal, but they are mighty to the pulling down of strongholds." Paul talks about weapons and war, so yes, we are in a war. Plead the blood of Jesus over your mind, and lay hands on your fiancee and anoint Him with oil, anoint yourself, and tell him to plead the Blood of Jesus. Tammy faye recently said churches don't teach on the Power of the Blood at all anymore, I agree with her.

You will make it through the next three weeks. You are not alone. This is normal for almost all weddings. That's why many decide to just elope! Thoughts of doubt are normal also. God bless you in your future marriage.

Please consider this advice. I know it will be hard to do at this late date, yet if it is God's will you marry and the man you have chosen really loves you a little more time will not hurt your love it will strengthen it. Step back. Pray and seek out good counseling together. Find the root of the fear and doubts. Do not expect them to go away after the wedding, they may repeatedly surface to tear it down over time. The best advice I ever heard on this subject - if in doubt don't do it especially marriage

We can't forget that satan and his angels attack us in our minds, and that is why I believe he has been messing with our minds as our wedding approaches. In my 20 years as a Christian, I have seen him follow predictable patterns. We can't be ignorant of his tricks.

sadly. with our imperfections, (which may result from the Fall) we suffer these anxiety atacs about many things, Getting married is one of the most important things you will do in your life, and it is only natural to get anxious.
Enjoy your wedding day!

Sounds like common-garden-variety pre-nuptual jitters to me--not that the devil can't exploit normal human reactions.
