Have you ever heard the phrase, “Two are better than one?” That saying is actually scriptural.
Ecclesiastes 4:9-10 (NLT) says, “Two people are better off than one, for they can help each other succeed. If one person falls, the other can reach out and help. But someone who falls alone is in real trouble.”
Another great scripture is Matthew 18:19 (NLT) says, “If two of you agree here on earth concerning anything you ask, my Father in heaven will do it for you.”
Two is a powerful number. God knew what he was doing when he made marriage. The greatest weapon He has on this planet is two people who are in agreement. The devil knows that, and that’s why he is always trying to divide. However, Jesus is always trying to unite. That’s why Jesus prayed, “Father, make them one, the way You and I are one” (John 17:21).
Jesus knows that two people united together as one can accomplish amazing things.
Marriage is a gift from God, and there is power in unity. Together, you and your spouse can become a force to be reckoned with when dealing with life’s challenges and the devil’s opposition.

THE TAKE AWAY
God intended for marriage to be the joining together of two people into one unit, or one flesh. That includes growing together spiritually. As a couple, take time to pray and read the Word together. Compile a prayer list of goals and get in agreement over them. Remember, two people walking in unity together with one heart and one mind can accomplish great things!
