No matter how difficult your marriage may be right now, God can turn it around! Maybe financial troubles have taken their toll. Maybe moral boundaries have been crossed. Maybe poor communication has left you feeling abandoned. Whatever the reason and no matter how difficult, your marriage can be saved. Begin now by putting the faith principles of trusting God and His Word to work. As you do, remember these four truths about faith as they apply to your marriage.
Faith Truth No. 1: Nothing Intimidates God
“Trust in the Lord with all your heart; do not depend on your own understanding. Seek his will in all you do, and he will show you which path to take” (Proverbs 3:5-6). It’s just as easy for God to heal your marriage as it is for Him to heal a headache. Don’t give in to a feeling of hopelessness concerning your marriage. Remember that nothing is too big for your heavenly Father, and He will show you what to do.
Faith Truth No. 2: The Word of God Is True
“Every word of God proves true. He is a shield to all who come to him for protection” (Proverbs 30:5). You can trust God’s Word, whether natural circumstances seem to agree or not. Begin to stand on that Word by finding promises in the Word for your marriage and then meditating on those scriptures day and night.
Faith Truth No. 3: Build Your Faith by Reading and Studying the Word of God
“Faith cometh by hearing, and hearing by the word of God” (Romans 10:17, KJV). If you want faith to stand for your marriage, then begin studying, reading and confessing what the Bible says. Don’t rely on what others tell you. Get into the Word for yourself, and take a stand for your marriage.
Faith Truth No. 4: You Have all the Faith You Need to Stand for Your Marriage
“…God hath dealt to every man the measure of faith” (Romans 12:3, KJV). Since that scripture was written to born-again people, you can be assured that if you’ve made Jesus the Lord of your life, you have the faith in you to stand for whatever you need, including your marriage. Whatever your situation may be, you can take a stand in faith.
Your marriage is not beyond help!
