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.

There Is Power in the Name of Jesus

“‘And everyone who calls on the name of the Lord will be saved.’”  Acts 2:21 

Have you committed to the Lord to go on a journey of spiritual growth for marriage restoration?

I pray that you will realize the power in the name of Jesus in your own life and marriage. 

Are you hurting so much right now that you find it hard to pray? The Lord loves you and wants to heal your wounded, broken, crushed heart and spirit. You may not be able to comprehend how you will survive your marriage crisis, financially, emotionally, or spiritually. The Lord will never leave you; surrender your life to Him and seek Him daily.

Do you pray for your spouse to be saved? Do you have a prayer journal or a special app to remind you to pray for special prayer requests?

Jesus taught the disciples how to pray with the Lord’s Prayer. Can we do any less each day? The disciples knew there was power in the name of Jesus as He was constantly teaching the disciples about Himself and His kingdom. 

“Teacher,” said John, “we saw a man driving out demons in your name and we told him to stop, because he was not one of us.” “Do not stop him,” Jesus said. “No one who does a miracle in my name can in the next moment say anything bad about me, for whoever is not against us is for us. Truly I tell you, anyone who gives you a cup of water in my name because you belong to the Messiah will certainly not lose his reward.”  Mark 9:38-41

Believe in the Lord’s mighty power. Bob knew I was standing and praying for him  to come home. He would routinely speak discouragement and be very negative and critical whenever we would talk about the children. Sometimes he would say, “Why would I want to come home to fight and argue with you again?” 

I would answer him with love, saying that the power of the Holy Spirit had touched and was changing me to be the Christian wife and mother that I needed to become. “Bob, I am different. I know that the Lord said He is going to heal our marriage. I will be waiting for you.”

As I read my Bible daily, I knew that the Lord was speaking to me. I was becoming a new creature in Christ. I had chosen to pick up my cross and follow the Lord to do His will in my life and marriage. In the Lord’s timing, I knew He was going to transform my husband’s heart.

In Acts Chapter 4, Peter and John went before the Sanhedrin and were told that they must stop teaching in the name of Jesus. What would you do if you were told this today? Don’t forget that Jesus Christ paid the price for your salvation and all sinners who will call upon His name to be saved.

“But to stop this thing from spreading any further among the people, we must warn them to speak no longer to anyone in this name.” Then they called them in again and commanded them not to speak or teach at all in the name of Jesus. But Peter and John replied, “Which is right in God’s eyes: to listen to you, or to him? You be the judges! As for us, we cannot help speaking about what we have seen and heard.” Acts 4:17-20 

Will you stand up for the righteousness of our Lord Jesus Christ? Will you speak of the power in the name of Jesus, healing and resurrecting hurting and dead marriages? Will you share scriptures with others declaring that there is no other name in the world like the name of Jesus? There is power in the name of Jesus!

Lord, heal these marriages in the mighty name of Jesus. Amen.

God bless,
