I will declare your name to my people; in the assembly, I will praise you. You who fear the Lord, praise him! All you descendants of Jacob, honor him! Revere him, all you descendants of Israel! Psalm 22:22-23
If you are reading this, I assume that you have experienced a miracle and your marriage has been restored. So what happens now? How do you move forward? Well, now you have a choice. You can be like the Israelites in the wilderness, forgetting all the miracles their Lord had done for them and complaining about the daily problems of their life, or you can become a lighthouse.
The better option is for your family to become a lighthouse for the other marriages around you, demonstrating to others that our Lord Jesus Christ gives light, even in the darkest of storms. He can take a marriage marked “hopeless and impossible” and rebuild it one area at a time. Your marriage is being rebuilt on the solid rock of Jesus Christ.
You are rebuilding your home on a new foundation. It is not going to be reconstructed immediately. It will likely happen for the rest of your lives. If you were to build a custom home, it would take time. The same is true for your marriage. The Great Architect, Creator of Heaven and earth, and Builder of everything will give you and your spouse daily instructions on how to rebuild each room. Be patient and continue to do what the Lord instructs. Remember, families, fix up and work on their physical homes all their life. We should also be working on rebuilding the hearts inside of our homes forever. The Lord will do it in His perfect timing.
Your testimony to others is so important. Allow others to witness that marriages all over this land can be restored by the mighty Lord God we serve. Let us shout what the Lord has done in our marriages from the rooftops.
“‘…Give thanks to the Lord Almighty, for the Lord is good; his love endures forever.” For I will restore the fortunes of the land as they were before,’” says the Lord. Jeremiah 33:11
We serve an awesome, mighty God. I pray that you will sense His great hand upon your home, restoring and protecting your family every day!
