God's Strength To Stand for Our marriage!
I have been through so much over the past 2 years...my loving husband of 25 years has been involved with a much younger woman since 2005! He is 50 yrs old like me, and this ''girl'' is 27!
I was devastated when I found out, but instead of seeking marriage guidance or counselling or any other worldly solution, I sought a Biblical route to marriage restoration!
Even though my husband wants a divorce, I do not, and I have made it clear that God is in charge, not us! So even when my husband becomes upset or angry for whatever reason, I respond always with a LOVING answer. I have learned that this is what God wants.There are many times when I have to ''zip my lip'' because the human part of me wants to strike back with harsh words, but instead I remain calm and this really destabilizes the enemy.
We must always remember that the enemy is NOT our spouse, but the devil himself, who has come to confuse and destroy our covenant marriages. With prayer and fasting and spiritual warfare, we can support God and glorify Him as He goes about changing the hearts of our prodigals. At the same time we know that our hearts and attitudes are being changed for the better, and that when God has perfected our spouses to be the husband/wife they were meant to be, that he/she will be returned to us!
In the meantime, we must be faithful to our spouses, even though at this time they SEEM not to care. We must also be obedient to God and agree to do things His way. God is able, and we must have the faith to trust Him 100% to restore our marriages in His own way and in His perfect timing!
Please let's all learn to be patient, and faithful, and obedient. We know that there is NOTHING God cannot do. When our marriages are fully restored, our Lord's name will be glorified, and our restoration will be permanent as our marriages will have been rebuilt on the solid rock of Jesus Christ.
What more could anyone wish for?
Please do not despair! God is with us and He will see us through!
