“Believe in the Lord Jesus, and you will be saved — you and your household.” Acts 16:31
Do you really believe in marriage restoration? Ask the Holy Spirit to speak to you a special Word of confirmation or a new “Rhema” word from God’s Word that will confirm to you again that the Lord is moving on the other side of your mountain.
Jesus replied, “Truly I tell you, if you have faith and do not doubt, not only can you do what was done to the fig tree, but also you can say to this mountain, ‘Go, throw yourself into the sea,’ and it will be done. If you believe, you will receive whatever you ask for in prayer.” Matthew 21:21-22
I will never forget when I was like you, up and down, questioning my stand. My family, church friends, and the people around me were so negative. But God gave me one faithful prayer warrior who prayed for me. When I got discouraged, she would open up her Bible, flip the pages, and tell me what the Word said. She told me, “You must believe and walk in faith. That is what a Christian must do their whole life.” What a profound statement Vera made to me many years ago.
As I read the Bible, I do not see people repeatedly going back to the Lord saying, “Would you speak to me one more time, tell me again, that you really want me to build this ark or take the Israelites to the promised land or build the Jerusalem wall or go and share the good news that Jesus Christ is alive.” They had faith and trusted Jesus!
When Jesus had entered Capernaum, a centurion came to him, asking for help. “Lord,” he said, “my servant lies at home paralyzed, suffering terribly.” Jesus said to him, “Shall I come and heal him?” The centurion replied, “Lord, I do not deserve to have you come under my roof. But just say the word, and my servant will be healed. For I myself am a man under authority, with soldiers under me. I tell this one, ‘Go,’ and he goes; and that one, ‘Come,’ and he comes. I say to my servant, ‘Do this,’ and he does it.” When Jesus heard this, he was amazed and said to those following him, “Truly I tell you, I have not found anyone in Israel with such great faith…Then Jesus said to the centurion, “Go! Let it be done just as you believed it would.” And his servant was healed at that moment. Matthew 8:5-10, 13
Will you become a person of great faith? You have chosen God’s way and are rebuilding your home on the solid rock of Jesus Christ. God wants you to stop doubting, believe in His mighty power, and walk in faith, trusting Him every day to be all that you need for everything.
How many times a week do you battle doubt and unbelief coming against you in believing that your marriage is “not” going to be restored? How often do you doubt your spouse will ever change or accept Jesus Christ as Savior? Are you thinking, “It looks so hopeless in the natural?”
So do not throw away your confidence; it will be richly rewarded. You need to persevere so that when you have done the will of God, you will receive what he has promised. Hebrews 10:35
Believe in the power of your Lord Jesus Christ. Believe that He loves you and your family more than you do.
Lord, I pray that You will help me to believe and not doubt. Increase my faith and remove any lack of faith, unbelief, or fear that is coming against me. Thank You that You are in control of every one of my circumstances. I know that Your purpose will prevail in Your timing if I will only stand firm. Lord, speak to _____ who has walked away from loving our children and me and help them to take back the responsibility of being a husband/wife and father/mother. May You speak so loudly today to start changing their life completely, turning their hearts back to You and us, to our marriage, and removing all their sins, addictions, and temptations. I believe in Your mighty power, and I am praising and thanking You in advance for what You are doing in the Heavenlies. Lord, I pray for all men of God to preach the Gospel, and hearts and lives will be transformed forever. May You have a mighty harvest of souls this Lord’s Day. In Jesus’ mighty Name, I pray. Amen.
