Then they cried out to the LORD in their trouble, and he brought them out of their distress. He stilled the storm to a whisper; the waves of the sea were hushed. They were glad when it grew calm, and he guided them to their desired haven. Psalm 107:28-30
Do you believe in the Word of God? Then choose to believe the scripture above. The Lord is right there with you. He sees and knows your pain and the hurt you are facing. God is in control. Trust Him today.
I know that the scripture in Psalm 107 may apply to you as you cry out to the Lord in your troubles. May you start praising the Lord as you read the next sentence: He brought them out of their distress. I pray that you will come to know the Lord as your Protector, and your Deliverer. You can praise the Lord in spite of your circumstances.
Some of you are facing upcoming court dates, restraining orders, lack of communication with your spouse and other mountains. Another person just found out a baby is expected with the other person.
Your Lord is right there with you and knows the circumstances. Know today that your Lord wants to touch and change both you and your spouse’s hearts to serve Him together. You are in a storm that seems raging and the waves seem like they are coming over you and your family as if to drown or destroy you. May you stand on the promises in the Word of God. Remember, He stilled the storm to a whisper. Nothing is too hard for your Lord to fix in your marriage.
The enemy is attacking marriages every day. May you be more convicted than ever before to pray for all marriages and to pray for all prodigals who have been seduced, blinded and deceived by the enemy. Pray that all churches around the world will speak the Word of God and speak to the sinners to repent and turn from their sinful ways. That is what Jesus did every day and taught His disciples to do, also.
I always like to teach about Joseph in Genesis, who was rejected and abandoned by his brothers. He was alone and there appeared to be no hope. But God never left Joseph and used him mightily to help his family several years later during a famine. A special scripture in Genesis 50:19-21 was one the Lord gave me when I was standing for Bob to return home:
“…Don’t be afraid. Am I in the place of God? You intended to harm me, but God intended it for good to accomplish what is now being done, the saving of many lives. So then, don’t be afraid. I will provide for you and your children…”
God has a plan and purpose for your life. Allow Him to use you each day regardless of your problems. Radiate your Lord wherever you go. You must walk in faith, believing that your Lord Jesus is able to mend, restore and rebuild your marriage. Our world has had divorce affect millions of families. You or someone in your family may have suffered divorce. Your parents may be divorced. You can change history, and make a difference for your life, for your spouse and for your children by believing and standing in the gap for your spouse to come to their senses in God’s perfect timing.
I know that there may be a season where your spouse may be very angry or hostile, determined to divorce you, saying they will never come back. But today, remember the Lord’s mighty power and how God sent His only Son, Jesus Christ to die for all sinners.
For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life. For God did not send his Son into the world to condemn the world, but to save the world through him. John 3:16-17
Your Lord came to heal the sick. If you are sick or have a loved one who is ill, read the Gospels and be encouraged how many times the Lord touched and healed so many. We believe that our Lord is no respecter of persons. Our Lord Jesus also came to save people from the sinful lifestyle they were living in. That includes your spouse and all sinners. Choose to pray today for the salvation of all prodigals in their far country. Pray that the Holy Spirit will speak conviction in their ears to cause them to repent and turn from their wicked ways, coming home to their Lord and to their spouse. May every sinner call on the name of our Lord Jesus Christ to be saved from Satan.
And we know that in all things God works for the good of those who love him, who have been called according to his purpose. Romans 8:28
Lord, we pray for a mighty harvest around the world, touching people’s hearts who have become hardened, disobedient to Your will and way in their life. May You speak so loudly to them, that they will humble themselves before You and fear their Lord God. Lord, be with all the children who have felt rejection and pain due to one of their parents not being home. Lord, soften both spouse’s hearts to show them that You can rebuild and restore broken relationships as nothing is impossible with God. Amen.
Peter replied, “Repent and be baptized, every one of you, in the name of Jesus Christ for the forgiveness of your sins. And you will receive the gift of the Holy Spirit. The promise is for you and your children and for all who are far off—for all whom the Lord our God will call.” Acts 2:38-39
