How To Stand Firm for Your Marriage

BY: Anonymous
To stand firm for your marriage, you will need to know that it is God’s will to restore the marriage.  God is on your side when it comes to the marriage covenant between one man and one woman.   When you read in the book of Genesis, you can see God is the originator of marriage and family.  Adam spoke over the union he had with Eve (Genesis 2:21-24); this gives us the plan of God, and He has not changed his mind.  

Jesus told the disciples to search the scriptures to find God and know His plans, and we are to do the same. When you spend time with the Heavenly Father, Jesus, and the Holy Spirit, you will have all your needs met.  Every question or concern you have about you and your covenant spouse is right in the word of God.  You will have to build your faith and have confidence in God’s word.  It may take some time to learn how to walk by faith and not by sight, be patient with yourself and your spouse, and let the fruit of the Spirit (Galatians 5:22-23) manifest in your recreated spirit.  

Listen to faith-filled media about asking God and receiving the answer, about believing in our heart and not doubting (Mark 11:23-24).  I cannot emphasize it enough. Please take time to develop a relationship that will last through eternity.  In John 10, Jesus says, “My sheep know my voice and another they will not follow.”  

Again, Romans 8:14-15, 26-28 tells us that we are to be led by the Holy Spirit, who knows everything and will aid and assist us in praying for our spouses.  You see in Psalm 23 that God has prepared a table (covenant) for us in the presence of our enemies. Still, we are to partake of the meal (which includes wisdom, understanding, finances, healing) that has already been prepared because of the reconciling blood of Jesus. It is up to us to partake of it. The book of Proverbs instructs us on gaining wisdom and understanding of how to do that.

Romans 4 tells us that “Against all hope, Abraham in hope believed… He did not waver through unbelief regarding the promise of God, but was strengthened in his faith and gave glory to God, being fully persuaded that God had power to do what he had promised.” (Romans 4:18, 20-21). This same Abraham shows up in the “Faith Hall of Fame” in Hebrews 11:1-40. Spending time there meditating on the faithfulness of God to His covenant promises will encourage you as your faith grows. We, as “offspring of Abraham,” are children of this same hope.

I suggest that you write the scriptures down that the Holy Spirit gives you and meditate on them, speaking them out.  Talk to the Lord about His word, and He will provide you with more understanding.  Please take the time to spend with the Lord not only for your marriage restoration but to really know Him as Father, Jesus as Lord, and Holy Spirit as the Comforter. You will grow in faith and will be able to assist others with their marriage restoration.
 
God tells us in His word in Romans 1:17, “the just shall live by faith” and that it takes faith to please God. God has put His power in His word; it is the same power that raised Christ Jesus from the dead.  It is also the same power that raises dead marriages back to life.

Never stop searching Scripture; continue your pursuit of God. I just know you will agree that it will be worth it.
