Are you standing for the restoration of your marriage? A daily devotional that will offer encouragement from God’s Word as you stand for the restoration of your marriage.

Lord, I Want Your Will To Be Done

“Do not be like them, for your Father knows what you need before you ask him. This, then, is how you should pray: ‘Our Father in heaven, hallowed be your name, your kingdom come, your will be done on earth as it is in heaven. Give us today our daily bread. Forgive us our debts, as we also have forgiven our debtors. And lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from the evil one.'” Matthew 6:8-13

Do you want to know God’s will for your marriage? Will you seek the Lord, asking and praying specifically for Him to show you His will? Every day we have men and women surfing the Internet, finding our website, asking many questions, taking opinions and polls from many different sources, wanting to know God’s will in their marriage.

Will you be different? Instead, go to the Lord and seek His will and way for your life. Your Heavenly Father knows what you need before you ask Him. God knows all the details about your husband or wife and knows the details about you, your temptations and your strengths. He knows all about your spouse’s heart and about your children’s problems.

Are you praying daily for your husband or wife to change their sinful behavior, actions or words? Your spouse may be going to church and Bible study, but are they putting God’s Word into action by forgiving and loving you unconditionally?

Seek the Lord while he may be found; call on him while he is near. Let the wicked forsake his way and the evil man his thoughts. Let him turn to the Lord, and He will have mercy on him, and to our God, for he will freely pardon. “For my thoughts are not your thoughts, neither are your ways, my ways,” declares the LORD… “So is my word that goes out from my mouth: It will not return to me empty, but will accomplish what I desire and achieve the purpose for which I sent it.” Isaiah 55:6-8, 11

The Lord will show you His will through His Word and other signs. He will reveal to you in some way what He will accomplish and what He desires for you.

Now listen, you who say, “Today or tomorrow we will go to this or that city, spend a year there, carry on business and make money.” Why, you do not even know what will happen tomorrow. What is your life? You are a mist that appears for a little while and then vanishes. Instead, you ought to say, “If it is the Lord’s will, we will live and do this or that.” As it is, you boast and brag. All such boasting is evil. Anyone, then, who knows the good he ought to do and doesn’t do it, sins. James 4:13-17

There are many areas where we can know God’s will by reading the Word. One example is salvation. The Lord loves your spouse so much, that He is willing to wait for their surrender and obedience to His plan for their marriage restoration.

The Lord is not slow in keeping his promise, as some understand slowness. He is patient with you, not wanting anyone to perish, but everyone to come to repentance. 2 Peter 3:9

Will you stand in the gap for your marriage forever? Will you learn God’s will and then wait on His will for your marriage? We are living in the end times, so I pray that you will choose to seek the Lord to know God’s will and then be obedient to God’s way for your marriage to be restored. Stand firm in the Lord every day, praying for your spouse’s heart to be touched by the Lord.

Let me share one of my favorite prayers that specifically is “asking God to fill you with the knowledge of His will through all spiritual wisdom and understanding.” This is an excellent prayer that you can personalize with your spouse’s name in it daily and is my prayer for you today. You can “know and do” God’s will for your life and marriage!

For this reason, since the day we heard about you, we have not stopped praying for you and asking God to fill you with the knowledge of his will through all spiritual wisdom and understanding. And we pray this in order that you may live a life worthy of the Lord and may please him in every way: bearing fruit in every good work, growing in the knowledge of God, being strengthened with all power according to his glorious might so that you may have great endurance and patience, and joyfully giving thanks to the Father, who has qualified you to share in the inheritance of the saints in the kingdom of light. For he has rescued us from the dominion of darkness and brought us into the kingdom of the Son he loves, in whom we have redemption, the forgiveness of sins. Colossians 1:9-14

God bless,
