REFLECTIONS OF THE FATHER'S HEART

By Glenn H. Jackson

 

 

[Exhortations From The Father]

 

 

 

*       Facts and "feelings" bow to a "revelation" of My absolute Truth when that revelation is adhered [held] to - through a steadfast proclamation of words and actions that align themselves with it [the revelation].

 

        ...."We are destroying speculations and every lofty thing raised up against the true knowledge of God [and who we ALREADY are, in Christ], and we are taking every thought captive [through proclamation] to the obedience of Christ [a revelation of the Father's Will]".... 2 Corinthians 10:5 NASB

 

THEREFORE

 

        ...."we consider and look not to the things that are seen [the lower reality - that which is real to the five physical senses] but to the things that are unseen [through faith in the higher Reality of God's Word]; for the things that are visible are temporal (brief and fleeting) [subject to change], but the things that are invisible are deathless and everlasting [Eternal]".... 2 Corinthians 4:18 The Amplified Translation

"The Greater the Battle, the Bigger the Miracle!" 

By Lana Vawser

 

 

The other week I had a dream and I heard the Lord say, "The greater the battle, the bigger the miracle." When He spoke these words I felt great hope, full of expectation, being released in the dream. I felt such an increase in the demonstrative power of God to turn impossibility on its head.

A Shift in Perspective

I could also see that the Spirit of God was bringing comfort to those who have been in major battles. I could feel the weariness of these many saints who have been saying, "The battle has been SO great." But at the same time, I could feel the Spirit of God bringing a shift in their perspective. This move of His Spirit was bringing His people higher into His perspective. He was inviting them to see as HE sees; to not magnify the battle but magnify HIM; to magnify HIS name and HIS power, which is going to explode.

 

I could feel the heart of God so strongly for His people in this dream. The battle has not been for nothing. The enemy has come to steal, kill and destroy (John 10:10), but within the battle, there has been a move of the Spirit of God to fortify and strengthen His people in faith. It is rooted deeply in His Word and in His nature.

 

I could feel the Spirit of God strongly encouraging His people and telling them that they have not been ill-equipped in the battle. They have not been alone in the fire that has been turned up seven times hotter. The "fourth man" has been with them in the fire (Daniel 3:25). 

 

The miracles that He IS performing, and going to perform, will not only outweigh the intensity of the battle by far, but they will also bring a shift in perspective, revealing that He HAS been with them and IS with them in the midst of battle, and that they already have all things IN HIM to walk as the overcomers that they are.

 

Many have felt like they have been dying in the battle, but Jesus, by His Spirit, has been bringing them into a deeper place of finding HIM and discovering that HE is true life in the midst of battle; HE is true peace in the midst of the battle; HE protects and HE strengthens in the midst of the battle.

 

The enemy has been working SO hard to distract many and to get them to focus on how "BIG" the battle is, or how "INTENSE" the warfare has been. Yes, it has been intense, but it is NOT greater and it is NOT bigger than OUR GOD.

 

Lift Up Your Eyes! God Will Keep His Promises

 

I heard the Lord say, "LIFT UP YOUR EYES, LIFT UP YOUR EYES, LIFT UP YOUR EYES!" There is a ploy of the enemy to get many caught in this place of distraction and feeling the heaviness of the season, but He is inviting His people deeper into a place of fortified peace, life, joy, strength, faith and hope IN HIM.

 

Hold fast, saints. The battle has been raging, the battle has been intense, but it is NOT bigger than the miracles that are awaiting you. He will be FAITHFUL to do what He said He would do.

 

The Lord has been highlighting Joshua 21 to me this week, especially verse 45: "Not a single one of all the good promises the LORD had given to the family of Israel was left unfulfilled; everything He had spoken came true.”

 

He also highlighted Psalm 145:13, "...The LORD is trustworthy in all He promises and faithful in all He does," as well as Hebrews 10:23, "Let us hold tightly without wavering to the hope we affirm, for God can be trusted to keep His promise." 

 

The battle has been fierce, but HE is bigger. His faithfulness is greater than any battle. His Word and His love are fiercer than any attack of the enemy.

 

A Release of Mighty, Monumental Miracles

 

Recently, I had another dream and heard, "Monumental miracles will see harvest come in." I knew immediately that the Lord was speaking about these mighty, monumental miracles that are going to release the power of testimony like we have NEVER seen before—on a level we have never seen before. The testimony of salvation and the testimony of the power and love of Jesus will be released in explosive demonstrations and miracles. Multitudes will come to know Him in greater ways than have ever been seen before.

 

Your battle may be more intense than anything you've ever walked in, but hold fast, resurrection power is coming. Demonstrations of His power to fulfill that which He has spoken are upon you, and the testimony of what Jesus has done in and through your life will draw MANY unto Him.

 

Be encouraged today, friends. The greater the battle, the bigger the miracle. He is more good than you could ever imagine, and it's time for miracles on a level we have never seen before. The name of Jesus will be lifted high and His glory, as the KING OF KINGS and LORD OF LORDS, will be seen! Great is Thy faithfulness, Majestic Jesus!

MEDITATIONS ON THE TRUE CHRISTIAN LIFE

By Glenn H. Jackson

 

 

______...."This book of the law [the Word of God] shall not depart from [always be in] your mouth, but you shall meditate on it day and night, so that you may be careful [take heed] to do according to all that is written in it; for THEN you will make your way prosperous, and THEN you will have success".... Joshua 1:8 NASB

 

 

 

DEVELOPING YOUR SPIRIT LIFE

 

[part 2 of 10]

 

There Can Be No Development Of The Human Spirit Until It Receives Eternal Life

 

*____It was His Spirit that was declared righteous. He was made alive in His Spirit.

 

 

____It was His Spirit Resurrection rather than His physical Resurrection that has given to humanity its Redemption.

 

 

____Man is so tied up with Sense Knowledge that he has only seen the physical suffering of Christ on the cross, and His physical Resurrection. It was something infinitely beyond that. It was His Spirit that was suffering for our spirits. 

 

 

It was His Spirit that was made Righteous for our spirits. It was His Spirit that was recreated for the recreation of our spirits. Until we know this in our spirit, there will be no great development of faith, neither will we come into the knowledge of our rights and privileges as sons of God.

 

 

____There can be no development of the human spirit until it receives Eternal Life, in other words, until it is recreated.

 

 

____We know this, because there had never been a great inventor, chemist, or scientist in any nation, until that nation received Eternal Life. This, in itself, is a staggering fact. Thinking men would be mightily moved if they knew this truth. The Holy Spirit recreates its through the Word. He imparts to us the nature of the Father, and with this impartation conies the new kind of Wisdom. Christ is made unto us Wisdom. 

 

 

This is accomplished when we are recreated. It is God's wisdom that is imparted to us in His nature, just as His love is imparted to us in His nature. I have come to believe, as I have studied the subject of the spirit, that when God imparts to us His nature, there comes with it all of the attributes of Himself. They are undeveloped, but they are there lying latent in our human spirits.

 

 

____There is faith that will link us up with God. There is love that will make us God-like. There is stability that will make us as stable as God; and all the other wonderful attributes that have challenged us in the man Jesus, can be reproduced in us, as we walk in the light with Him. It is necessary that we grasp the significance of the finished work of Christ; for in His finished work is the recreation of the spirit, and a revelation of the vast possibilities of entering into a fellowship with God, such as man has never yet been conscious of.

Recovery Time!

BY: JOE JOE DAWSON

 

 

You need to remind yourself of all of the prophetic words that you’ve been given over the year that have yet to come to pass, because this is a season where you will start to see each of those come to fruition!

 

Every prophetic promise that you have not seen fulfilled will be recovered and manifested.

 

Many believers have endured setbacks, delays, and have seen the enemy steal so much from them in past seasons. But get ready my friends, because in this season, expect to recover all! You will recover all spiritually, financially, in your physical health, in your relationships and in your time and resources.

 

In whatever area or situation where the enemy has robbed you, it is payback time!

 

EVERYTHING THE ENEMY HAS STOLEN FROM YOU WILL BE RESTORED, AND THEN SOME! WHEN THE ENEMY STEALS FROM YOU, HE MUST GIVE IT BACK BUT WITH INTEREST. YOU WILL NOT JUST RECOVER EVERYTHING THAT HAS BEEN TAKEN BUT MORE AND BETTER WILL BE RESTORED TO YOU!

 

This is a recover all season. The enemy never goes to battle where there are no spoils and you are about to see recompense and restoration where he has taken from you. Position yourself and be expectant. Don’t be weary or discouraged. There can be so much pain and disappointment in seasons where it looks like the enemy has taken so much. But I’m telling you, you will surely recover everything you think you’ve lost and more in this season!

 

Get ready to recover all!

PIVOTAL Season! 

By Denise Sylvia Bekker

 

 

>>>————>

 

 

 

When Esther touched the king’s sceptre it was symbolic of being in-graphed into his kingdom. Esther meaning Star, became the pivotal star that would change the course of history. The King, the Lord Jesus, is extending His Golden Sceptre! Divine strategies have caused a New Shift within Kingdom extremity. There is a Holy declaration and commissioning taking place, aligning the Bridal Company for now the Bride stands at a great pivotal point!

 

All Kingdom perspectives are ‘dove tailing’ as the Bride of Christ perceives through ‘doves eyes.’ Looking beyond what is now but unto a building of God, an eternal dwelling in the heavens, not made with hands. 

 

 

Like jigsaw puzzle pieces being drawn together..interchanging positioning by a Pivotal Anointing that has been released through His Sceptre. Divine rotation by the Spirit of God, joining all together as One Body. 

 

 

Ephesians 4:16 From whom the whole body fitly joined together and compacted by that which every joint supplies, according to the effectual working in the measure of every part, causes increase of the body unto the edifying of itself in love. 

 

 

Behold ‘new platforms’ for ultimate Kingdom advancement. The Power of God is encompassing, seizing opportune kairos destined moments. Companies of Prophets have experienced God move in great Pivotal Power, the foundation thereof has already been laid. This is supernatural progression! Rapid Kingdom advancement. Watch! Even time shall be redeemed! Making the most of every opportunity is of utmost importance. Jesus makes all things new! New goals, new vision, new wine...Kingdom dynamics by aligned vision births unity and one accord. 

 

 

That which has been sown by Kingdom virtue remains sustainable. The fruit thereof is being stirred up, patterns and cycles of divine employment dovetailing together for ultimate expansion. This is the pivotal power of the Bridal Company that institutes growth and expansion, this is an appointed time! Listen! Watch!....change is at hand. Strategy of moving from this to that, taking away the first to establish the second! 

 

 

To improve is to change, to become perfect is to change often! Move from glory to glory....

2 Corinthians 3:18 But we all, with unveiled face, beholding as in a mirror the glory of the Lord, are being transformed into the same image from glory to glory, just as by the Spirit of the Lord.

 

 

Aha! A tipping point...a shift in Kingdom strategy by ‘change.’ Watch for the great ‘suddenlies’ of God in this season! Believe Him for extravagant favor for Kingdom purposes. The Book of Acts is the plumbline, The Word of God! Look...unto ‘breaking news’ headlines coming forth from the four corners. Everything is pivoting, and God rewards those who seek Him. 

 

Daniel 2:22 He reveals deep and hidden things, he knows what is in darkness, and the light dwells in him. 

 

 

Prepare! Stay positioned in the Fathers Right Hand..launch time is coming! A pivotal season is now!

I Get It . . . Maybe You’ve Heard All Your Life That You’re A Sinner

By Amy Shamp

 

 

 

I get it… maybe you’ve heard all your life that you’re a sinner. Maybe you are fighting battles and cycles that you’ve fought all your life. Maybe you’ve been told that nobody’s perfect and you’ll never be able to conquer those hidden sins until you get to heaven. 

 

 

But listen to me… Did you know that you’re already righteous? When God looks at you - He sees a son/daughter who is already righteous in His eyes! God gave us a free gift - Grace! God’s Grace empowers us not to sin. It transforms us from the inside out. Our righteousness is HIS righteousness. Once we understand the reality that we have already been made righteous - that’s when we truly begin to win the battle against sin and temptation! 

 

 

God doesn’t see you as a filthy sinner or a weak failure - He sees you as His blood-bought bride, beautiful and spotless, redeemed and covered by His precious blood. A son and daughter after His own heart - someone He is proud of! Bought by His sacrifice. Set free. Broken out of bondage. Washed clean. The more you behold the beauty of Christ and His grace, the more you will gain freedom and victory in every area of your life! 

 

 

Don’t allow anyone to call you a sinner! A sinner is someone who habitually sins. Everyone has sinned and fallen short of the glory of God, but that doesn’t make you a sinner. Any more than painting one room in your house makes you a painter! You are the righteousness of God, in Christ Jesus. Thank Him for His blood today!

THERE IS BREAKTHROUGH IN THE AIR!

By Deborah Waldron Fry

 

 There is BREAKTHROUGH in the air! Put your PRAISE into the Atmosphere, Child of God! The Veil has been torn, it is down and you stand with Jesus in the Holy of Holies! Lay your sacrifice of praise of the Alter! The Spirit says," There is an Open Heaven over you! Jesus has already paid the price!"  Yahweh desires those who worship Him in Spirit and Truth! The Blood of Jesus is working on your behalf! You are in the Presence of the Lord, Child of God! Where He is, Miracles happen! He hears your cries for help! He hears your prayers and He is working on your behalf! Let your praise go up! He is showing Himself mighty on your behalf! Pull that miracle down from heaven to earth with your praise! Pull on that Anointing by faith! His Anointing destroys every yoke! In His Presence is fullness of joy, at His Right hand, pleasures forevermore! HE IS ABLE to do exceedingly abundantly above ALL that you ask or think according to the Power that works in you! Hallelujah!! 

 

 

Psalm 16:11 

You will show me the path of life; In Your presence is fullness of joy; In Your right hand there are pleasures forevermore.

 

 

Ephesians 3:20

Now to Him who is able to do exceedingly abundantly above all that we ask or think, according to the power that works in us, 21to Him be glory in the church by Christ Jesus to all generations, forever and ever. Amen.

 

 

Isaiah 10:27

And it shall come to pass in that day, that his burden shall be taken away from off your shoulder, and his yoke from off your neck, and the yoke shall be destroyed because of the anointing. 

 

 

Deuteronomy 28:7 

The Lord will cause your enemies who rise against you to be defeated before you. They shall come out against you one way and flee before you seven ways. 

 

 

Hebrews 10:19

Therefore, brethren, having boldness to enter the Holiest by the blood of Jesus, 20 by a new and living way which He consecrated for us, through the veil, that is, His flesh, 21 and having a High Priest over the house of God, 22 let us draw near with a true heart in full assurance of faith, having our hearts sprinkled from an evil conscience and our bodies washed with pure water. 23 Let us hold fast the confession of our hope without wavering, for He who promised is faithful.

An Intercessors for America Daily Devotional:
Intercessors Win

 

 

 

Have you been wondering why you should intercede for people you don’t like? Have you been at a loss for words for HOW on earth to pray for people whom hate God and hate everything He stands for?

 

 

If so, I want to encourage you today with the Word of God—and equip you to pray in power even for people you don’t like.

 

 

First, why should you pray for people you don’t like?

 

This is the easiest question we address today: we pray for people we don’t like because Jesus commanded that we should. For example, in Matthew 5:43-48, Jesus told us:

 

 

“You have heard that it was said, ‘You shall love your neighbor and hate your enemy.’ But I say to you, love your enemies, bless those who curse you, do good to those who hate you, and pray for those who spitefully use you and persecute you, that you may be sons of your Father in heaven; for He makes His sun rise on the evil and on the good, and sends rain on the just and on the unjust.

 

For if you love those who love you, what reward have you? Do not even the tax collectors do the same? And if you greet your brethren only, what do you do more than others? Do not even the tax collectors do so? Therefore you shall be perfect, just as your Father in heaven is perfect.”

 

 

The Word of God is clear that we should pray for people we don’t like—even for people who persecute us. But why? WHY would the Lord command us to do such a thing?

 

The answer is twofold:

 

 

1.According to Matthew 5:43-48, obeying God in this area makes us like Him. After all, each and every one of us were God’s enemies before we gave our lives to Jesus. Yet, God in His mercy forgave us. We deserved to die in our sins, but Jesus gave His own life for us while we were yet sinners (Romans 5:8); while we were still the enemies of God.

2.We are to pray for people we don’t like because our prayers open the door on the earth for God to move.

 

 

Psalm 115:16 tells us:

 

“The heaven, even the heavens, are the Lord’s; but the earth He has given to the children of men.”

 

This means that the Lord has delegated stewardship of the earth to us. Jesus has ultimate authority, but He has made us His “middle-managers,” if you will. And since He has delegated stewardship over the earth to us, placing us in authority over it, He needs us to pray and ask Him to move in order for Him to have permission to move on the earth.

 

This is why your prayers are so important, even when you’re praying for someone you don’t like.

 

But you don’t have to pray the same way for the ungodly as you do for the righteous—and that’s a big key to effective prayer.

 

When you’re praying for the righteous, you can and should pray for all the blessings to come into their lives that God promises to the righteous! After all, they meet the conditions! Anyone who is obeying God has the right by covenant to receive all of God’s blessings!

 

But people who are not obeying God do not meet the conditions to receive His blessings. For those people, therefore, we must pray differently. We pray:

 

 

1.For them to be saved and give their lives to Jesus, for it is not God’s will that any should perish but that all should come to repentance.

2.We ask the Lord to change their hearts and make them aware of their need for Him.

3.We ask Him to convict them of their sin; to show them Jesus, so they will know what righteousness looks like; and to convict them of judgment, showing them that there is no hope or future in their sin.

4.We ask God to loose Heaven into their lives and that He would change their hearts so that such a blessing is even possible.

5.We pray that the Lord would bind them and prevent them from doing evil.

 

 

John 16:7-11 says this:

“Nevertheless I tell you the truth. It is to your advantage that I go away; for if I do not go away, the Helper will not come to you; but if I depart, I will send Him to you. And when He has come, He will convict the world of sin, and of righteousness, and of judgment: of sin, because they do not believe in Me; of righteousness, because I go to My Father and you see Me no more; of judgment, because the ruler of this world is judged.”

 

Holy Spirit’s job on the earth is to convict the world—to convict both sinners and the righteous—of their sin; of what righteousness looks like and why they need to be righteous; and to convict them of judgment. Therefore, our prayers along these three points release Him and give Him permission to work in this way among the wicked.

 

Additionally, however, we also need to pray to bind evil. As an intercessor for the great nation of America, this means:

 

•We ask the Lord to give us righteous leaders.

•We ask the Lod to remove any leader who is not leading the country into the ways of God.

•We ask the Lord to restore the great Restrainer of evil—Holy Spirit Himself—into our governments at every level (including at the local level), so that evil will be restrained and prevented.

•We ask the Lord to compel our leaders to walk in the ways of God and speak the words of God, even if they have zero intention of doing so.

 

 

Remember the story of Balaam in Numbers 22? Balaam was paid by a wicked ruler to speak curses over Israel. However, the Angel of the Lord—whom the Bible indicates is the preincarnate Christ—came personally to stand against Balaam, saying: “Behold, I have come out to stand against you, because your way is perverse before Me” (Numbers 22:32b). In this passage, someone who claimed to be from God was exposed by the Lord Himself as walking in perversity, and God Himself came to stand against him!

 

However, the story didn’t stop there. The next day, even though Balaam’s way was perverse, God placed His own words in Balaam’s mouth and he spoke a major blessing over the people of Israel—despite that fact that he had begun his journey and been paid to do harm to God’s people!

 

Wow! What a story!

 

We actually see scenarios repeated over and over like this in the New Testament. One after the other, pagan kings rise up in the nations around Israel—but God uses them to accomplish His own purposes toward Israel. Yes, sometimes those purposes are for discipline. Sometimes, however, God uses the pagan kings for the preservation of His people … and sometimes He converts them.

 

The ways of God are perfect, and they are past finding out.

 

This doesn’t mean we should ever agree with lies or injustice.

 

We should never turn a blind eye to evil. We should never “look the other way” and ignore anything that goes against the Word of God.

 

As it says in Isaiah 8:20: “To the law and to the testimony! If they do not speak according to this word, it is because there is no light in them.” We have to remember this: our convictions, prayers, and conversations must remain 100% aligned with the entirety of God’s inerrant, infallible Word—the Bible.

 

But it does mean that we must pray for our leaders, for our family and friends, and for everyone else—whether we like them or not.

 

We must ask the Lord to accomplish His purposes in them and through them. We must remember:

 

•That God loves sinners as much as He loves His children;

•That the heart of God breaks whenever He sees anyone caught up in sin; therefore, we must pray in sympathy with His heart so that His plans can come forth.

 

 

When we see things from God’s perspective, it suddenly becomes easier to pray that His Kingdom would come and His will would be done on earth—even in the lives of people we don’t like—just like His will is done in Heaven. When we are willing to admit that God can work even the plots of men out for the good of His people and His Kingdom, then it becomes easier to pray along those lines.

 

Again, the people we are praying for don’t have to have any intention of honoring God in order for God to use them. God is able to use people, nations, and kingdoms for His purposes even when the people are completely unaware that He is doing so.

 

So beloved, in these trying times, I encourage you: Don’t fall into sin by refusing to pray for those who hate you. Let’s respond rightly, in accordance with God’s Word, whether you are faced with a neighbor you don’t like, a friend who mistreats you, or a national situation or leader you’d rather not pray for.

 

Anything less is rebelling against God.

 

The truth is that we, as intercessors are not accountable for the actions of people for whom we pray. However, we are accountable for responding rightly, and for obeying God in personal holiness by yielding to His command to pray.

 

Therefore, beloved, if you are dealing with someone who hates you, please understand that God loves them too. Pray that righteousness and justice, which are the foundations of God’s throne, would be established in your life and in the lives of every person around you. Pray for every person and situation in sympathy with the heart of Jesus, that Jesus would no longer be grieved.

 

And as we pray, let’s believe God together that He really meant it when He said:

 

“And we know that all things work together for good to those who love God, to those who are the called according to His purpose” (Romans 8:28).

 

 

Will you pray today for God to use all of our national, state, and local leaders for His purposes—even if they intend otherwise? If you choose to obey God in this area, He will honor you—and He will answer your prayers, too!

FIRE BY NIGHT 

By Glenn H. Jackson

 

 

"Reflections Upon Reflections" [of The Father's Heart]

 

        ...."You, in Your great compassion, did not forsake them in the wilderness; The pillar of cloud did not leave them by day, to guide them on their way, or the pillar of fire by night, to light for them the way in which they were to go".... Nehemiah 9:19 NASB 

 

 

 

GOD NEEDS A PEOPLE WHO WILL NOT QUIT

 

Words of prophecy:

 

*____Satan always "attempts" to get My "chosen ones" to quit before they even start to walk in the "fullness" of the ministry that I have blessed them with. In these days, all those who have

been faithful and obedient to "hold fast the vision" [revelation of My Will for their life and ministry] shall surely enter into all that I have called them to - and great shall be their reward!

 

        "It [the vision] hastens toward the goal and it will not fail. Though it tarries, wait for it; For it will certainly come, it will not delay. Behold, as for the proud one, his soul is not right within him; But the righteous will live by his faith".... Habakkuk 2:3-4 NASB

 

"quit" - to stop, cease, or discontinue; to depart from; to give up or resign; let go;

 

____One of the great things that the Father is teaching all those who are seeking to enter into the fullness of their Kingdom-position and destiny in this most critical and glorious hour is to NOT quit - in their "present" environment. While it can, at times, seem like a very difficult test, it is one that all must surely pass - regardless of our present circumstances. God needs a people who will not quit, in ANY way, as He sends them forth in this final hour. A people who refuse to quit are very bad news for Satan and his forces - as in the power of the Holy Spirit [Who is the Spirit of Love] they become an unstoppable force before him.

 

____...."In the way [path] of righteousness [right standing and communion with the Father and His Word] is [the continual impartation of] life [Zoe - divine Life, Grace, divine Love, divine Light, divine Wisdom, resurrection power - first to oneself and, then to all those who cross their path], and in its pathway there is no death [no death in any of its forms {darkness, fear, sickness and disease etc.} can remain standing {functional}]".... Proverbs 12:28 NASB

 

Prayer of Proclamation:

 

____Father, we thank You and praise You that You have raised us up a people who refuse to quit - a people who continually set ourselves to exercise a steadfast faith and patience in order that Your Will might be brought to its perfect completion on ALL fronts [both individually and corporately] where we are concerned. And we declare it DONE [on an ongoing basis] in Jesus' Name - to Your greatest Glory. Amen.

This is for All people in the whole world . . . :

John 3:16

King James Version (KJV)

16 For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.

Scripture Prayers of Salvation

 

 Pray the following out loud:

Oh God . . . what have I done?

New Living Translation

Matthew 6:33


Seek the Kingdom of God above all else, and live righteously, and he will give you everything you need.

 

King James Bible


But seek ye first the kingdom of God, and his righteousness; and all these things shall be added unto you.

 

Put God first in your life . . . make Him first, read His Word, and get to know Him first. Get your life in Order with God first in your relationship , then your spouse. Truly surrender your life to Him, believe on Him, and the fact that God sent His son to die for your sins, rose from the dead, and now sits on the right hand of our Father in Heaven all so that you can be reconciled to Him. Ask God to reveal Himself to you. Ask God to forgive you of your sins. Ask Him to heal and save your marriage. Put your trust in Him. You will be surprised at how He can supernaturally, divinely intervene. He wants to be a major part in your relationshiip and your lives because He loves you. God hates divorce!

 

Though it may seem simple . . . it is not. Marriage is a tremendous amount of work, but can be good in the development of your character . . . into the Character of God. No one says it will be easy, for it is not. (If they do . . . it's a lie) Life on earth is preparation for your life in Heaven reconciled with God your Father, which includes the marriage process here on earth.

 

Do you pray for your marriage every day? Do you pray for your husband or wife every day? If you don't. . . start now! Ask God to help you in your marriage and to give you Wisdom. The book of proverbs is the book of Wisdom. Read it. Read the Word of God. Ask God to show you what you need to do to save your marriage. God speaks to you through His Word . . . did you know that? He will speak to you on a personal basis. . . . one on One. Put your trust in God for He loves you! Did you know that? He doesn't want you to end up in divorce. 

 

What you do on earth is a determination of where you will be in heaven. You can be as close to God as you desire. If you believe that He sent His son to die and rise, as reconciling you to Him, and be transformed to live your life on earth for God, everything will be added to you!

 

Yes, there will be tribulation and pain and suffering. It's all a part of life here on this earth. But with God all things are possible! With God, you will eventually die as we all do, and live forever with God in Heaven where there is no longer pain and suffering and no more tears. Without God, there will be a separation from God when you die and tremendous pain and suffering and that is Hell. . . in a nutshell. 

 

So choose life, and life more abundantly beloved child of God. And, if you are a believer in Christ, then submit and surrender your life to Him, pray for your spouse and marriage and know this, God is faithful. . .  He will answer your prayers. It probably will take alot of warfare, for we war not against flesh and blood, but against the principalities, powers, rulers of darkness on this earth, who are used by satan to kill, steal and destroy. Don't give up! Submit to God, resist the devil and he must flee. . .

 

King James Bible

James 4:7


7  Submit yourselves therefore to God. Resist the devil, and he will flee from you.

 

John 3:16

King James Version (KJV)

16 For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.

 

James 1:2-3

King James Version (KJV)

My brethren, count it all joy when ye fall into divers temptations;

Knowing this, that the trying of your faith worketh patience. 

 

This is a great start to the healing process of your marriage. This will overflow into every part of your life and you will be come an overcomer and an adopted son or daughter of the most High God! Only believe. 

 

This is also a great opportunity to renew or receive Christ as your Savior . . . it is life changing! If you feel the "tug" of the Holy Spirit and your Father in Heaven drawing you, then begin your new or renewed life in Christ with the prayer below backed up with the Word of God.

 

John 3:16

King James Version (KJV)

16 For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.

Enduring Loneliness during separation . . .

Courage in the Lonely Hour

In Touch Ministries

 

When no one else supports you, Christ stands with you.

By Charles F. Stanley

Loneliness is one of life’s most painful experiences. Since God created us as relational beings, the absence of companionship can be very discouraging. At some point, all of us have probably dealt with feelings of isolation. But it’s especially difficult when we’re going through a trying situation and there is no one to help or encourage us.

 

Courage to Endure Loneliness

 

What we want at that moment is companionship, support, and comfort so that our emotional pain will go away. But sometimes the situation persists, and the isolation seems as if it will go on forever. At times like this, we need courage to endure.

 

Did you know that God can use your loneliness to achieve His purposes in your life? Sometimes He allows such situations because they are prime opportunities to develop godly character within us, train us to depend on Him, and bring us into a closer relationship with Him. When we’re all alone and others are unable or unwilling to help, He is the One who never leaves us.

 

Paul knew the pain of loneliness. After many years of faithful service to the Lord, the apostle found himself in a cold, dank Roman prison. His last letter to Timothy gives us a glimpse of his conditions, priorities, and attitude during the final days of his earthly life.

 

Although he had continually given himself in service to others, at the end of his life, Paul was lonely; only Luke was with him (2 Tim. 4:9-16). Demas, one of his former companions, had deserted him, and other coworkers had moved on to various places. And sadly, at his first defense before the Roman court, Paul says, “No one supported me, but all deserted me” (v. 16).

 

Be careful not to spiritualize Paul. When we make him out to be a “super saint,” we miss seeing the ways God worked in his life and fail to realize that He could accomplish the same things in us. Paul was a flesh-and-blood person with all the weaknesses of humanity. He struggled with feelings, frustrations, and difficulties, just as you and I do. Put yourself in his place, and feel the discomfort and isolation of his last days.

 

Paul experienced loneliness on so many levels. He missed the company of those he loved and felt the pain of being deserted by Demas. The constraints and discomforts of prison life added to his sense of isolation. He was no longer free to do what he loved most—to travel the world, spreading the gospel, starting churches, and discipling believers. And with each passing day, he knew his death was imminent.

 

The Lord’s Provision in Our Loneliness

 

But prison life was not the only isolating situation Paul faced. When he was called before the Roman authorities to make his defense, no one supported him. Yet he tells us that he was not alone. The Lord stood with him and strengthened him so that he could fully accomplish God’s purposes (v. 17).

 

The assurance of Christ’s presence. Though the Romans ruled the world, the Ruler of the universe was standing beside Paul. One man plus Christ is more powerful than any earthly authority. When he faced the court, I am sure his courage grew as his thoughts raced to past situations when the Lord had been with him in danger and difficulty. I’d like to urge you to write down what God is doing in your life. Having a written account will remind you of His past faithfulness and encourage you to trust Him with your present situation.

 

Even though our personal experiences with God are invaluable, our greatest source of assurance is the Bible. Throughout its pages, the Lord tells His people that He is with them. Before Christ ascended to the Father, He promised His followers, “I am with you always, even to the end of the age” (Matt. 28:20). In fact, believers have the Holy Spirit within them, and He will remain there forever (John 14:16-17). In times of weakness, loneliness, or fear, remember that the Lord is always with you—even if you can’t perceive Him.

 

The reality of God’s constant presence with us is a fact, but we are not always aware of Him, especially in lonely periods. Haven’t you sometimes wondered, If He’s with me, why can’t I sense Him? Why do I feel so alone? When His presence is undetectable, our courage to face isolation and difficulty weakens. At times like this, we need to depend on fact, not feelings. Rely on the truth that He will never leave or forsake those who have been saved (Heb. 13:5).

 

The provision of divine strength. The second way the Lord helped Paul face the Roman authorities alone was by strengthening him (v. 17). Years earlier Paul had written a letter to the Philippians telling them, “I can do all things through Him who strengthens me” (Phil. 4:13). Now he was practicing what he preached. The powerful presence of the Lord gave him the boldness he needed to proclaim Christ in this threatening situation.

 

In his lifetime of walking with Christ, the apostle had learned that times of weakness were God’s invitation to depend on Him. When Paul was struggling with a “thorn in the flesh,” the Lord said to him, “My grace is sufficient for you, for power is perfected in weakness” (2 Cor. 12:9). Don’t let yourself feel hopeless in your loneliness. When you are emotionally, physically, or spiritually weak, you are in a prime position to witness firsthand the power of God working within you. He’ll give the strength and courage to endure whatever you are going through.

 

The fulfillment of God’s calling. One thing we can rely on is God’s faithfulness: He will always empower us to fulfill His purposes for our lives. Paul said that the Lord strengthened him “so that through [him] the proclamation might be fully accomplished, and that all the Gentiles might hear” (2 Tim 4:17). He knew this was where God wanted him to be—that his incarceration and trial were an integral part of fulfilling his calling.

 

In fact, before Paul’s first imprisonment in Rome, the Lord clearly told him this was his destiny. When the Jews in Jerusalem were trying to kill him, Jesus stood by his side and said, “Take courage; for as you have solemnly witnessed to My cause at Jerusalem, so you must witness at Rome also” (Acts 23:11). And during a storm on the way to Rome, an angel of God stood before him saying, “Do not be afraid, Paul; you must stand before Caesar” (Acts 27:24).

 

Since Paul’s desire was to do God’s will, we can be sure that he jumped at this chance to proclaim Christ to the Roman rulers of that day. He didn’t compromise or soften his message in order to save his own life. When a person has the conviction that he is doing the work God has called him to accomplish, he’s filled with zeal and bravery, which all the forces of evil cannot destroy.

 

This display of courage was not Paul’s first; his previous history of boldness had shaped his current response. Whenever we stand up for what we believe, God uses that as an opportunity to strengthen us for the next challenge—which may very well be more difficult and costly. Paul’s life was on the line, but he did not consider his life as dear to himself. His goal was to finish the ministry he’d received from the Lord Jesus (Acts 20:24).

 

The fear of death can cause us to lose courage, but the realization that God holds our days in His hand gives us the confidence to press on. The Lord has a course mapped out for each of us, and He guards our way as we seek to fulfill it. Although Paul was willing to die as a result of his testimony before the court, the Lord’s purposes for him were not yet complete; therefore, his life was spared (2 Tim 4:17).

 

To the casual observer, Paul’s ministry appeared to be over. After all, he was getting older and for the second time in his life, he was stuck in a Roman jail, unable to do what he’d done before. But God doesn’t count the value of our days as man does. In His eyes, a bedridden believer in a nursing home still has a purpose and a calling from Him. You can be sure that if you are breathing, the Lord still has plans for you.

 

A Godly Response to Loneliness

Maintain an eternal focus. Throughout his prison ordeal, Paul was able to respond in a godly fashion because he never lost his eternal focus. His goal was to finish what the Lord had called him to do and receive the heavenly reward laid up for him (2 Tim. 4:6-8). Without this kind of eternal perspective, we are all likely to descend into self-pity or bitterness.

 

Keep reaching out. But Paul never became inwardly focused. Until his dying breath, he looked for ways to share the gospel of hope. His last letter is filled with concern for others and advice for his dear friend Timothy. The limitations imposed by his situation did not hinder him from serving and caring for other people.

 

Hold no grudges. Despite being abandoned, Paul did not hold a grudge. When no one supported him at his trial, he said, “May it not be counted against them” (v. 16). He wasn’t even bitter toward God because of his lonely situation. Although a prison hardly seemed a fitting end for such a faithful servant, Paul considered it the last phase of his assignment from the Lord. He courageously endured until God brought him safely into His heavenly kingdom.

 

Stay in the word. As Paul closed his letter, he requested little from Timothy: just a cloak and “the books, especially the parchments” (v. 13). The cloak was obviously for his physical comfort, but the reading material was for spiritual support. The parchments were probably copies of the Old Testament—though he didn’t have long to live, Paul wanted the Scriptures. They had guided his heart and mind for so many years, and he longed for their comfort and encouragement in the cold and lonely dungeon.

 

For all of us, there will be times when we feel alone or when others are unable or unwilling to help. But dwelling on our situation or others’ wrongs against us leads only to resentment and self-pity. However, if we seek the Lord and rely on the truth of His Word, we will discover the comfort and strength of His presence. Courage will enter our souls, empowering us to endure loneliness and finish the course God has set for us.

When life is too much to bear . . .

Prayer for marriage . . .

Dear Lord, You know my heart is broken, that I have a troubled spirit, and a longing for Your comfort and the answers I seek during this time of despair. So I thank You for Your Word assuring me that from the very beginning, You created my marriage as a one flesh covenant relationship, saying that what You joined together, no man or woman should separate, and that You hate divorce. And thank You for Your promise to heal my broken heart, and bind up my wounds, that You will comfort me as I mourn, and that You will bestow on me a crown of beauty instead of ashes, the oil of gladness instead of mourning, and a garment of praise instead of a spirit of despair. Thank You, Lord, that instead of shame or disgrace, I will rejoice in my inheritance, that I will inherit a double portion in my life, and that everlasting joy will be mine, as You restore my marriage, which Satan came to destroy. I thank You that in accordance with Your Word, I can approach Your throne of grace with confidence and receive mercy and grace to help me in my time of need.

Thank You for Your promise that all things are possible with You, Lord Jesus, and that You, and You alone, will give me peace that transcends all understanding. Thank You for the assurance that no wisdom, no insight and no plan can succeed against You. And thank You for having ________’s heart in Your hand, and for directing his heart like a watercourse wherever You please. Thank You for assuring me that he can not plan or understand his own way because You are the one who determines and directs his steps.


Please teach me how to express my faith in love because Your Word tells us that unfailing love is what every man desires. And I ask You, Lord, to work in me to will and act according to Your good purpose, to make me the wife You want me to be. I believe You and I am Your disciple. I want to understand and live according to Your teachings because then I will know the truth and the truth will set me free. Thank You for Your Word, which is a lamp to my feet and a light for my path. You are my refuge and my shield, so I put my hope in Your Word.

 

Since faith is the substance of things hoped for and the evidence of things not seen, please show me how to live by faith and not shrink back so You will be pleased with me because I know it’s impossible to please You without faith. And thank You for Your promise that whatever I ask for in prayer and believe, I will receive. Please teach me to walk by faith and not by sight because Jesus said that according to my faith it will be done to me. So, Lord, I ask You to please give me the faith and patience necessary to inherit all that You have promised.

 

Father, always remind me that I’m not to live by the standards of this world and that even though I live in the world, I can’t wage war as the world does. The weapons You give me to fight with are not the weapons of the world. On the contrary, they have divine power to demolish strongholds and are mighty to demolish arguments and every pretension that set themselves up against the knowledge of You, my God, and the covenant of my marriage. So please help me take captive every thought and make it obedient to You, Christ Jesus. I will not be afraid, for You are with me. I will not be dismayed, for You are my God. Thank You for strengthening me. Thank You for helping me. Thank You for upholding me and the covenant of my marriage with Your righteous right hand. Thank You for making anyone who is incensed against me and the sanctity of my marriage as nothing; that anyone who contends with me or wars with me and comes to destroy or put asunder my marriage is as nothing, as a nonexistent thing, because You, the Lord, my God, hold my right hand and tell me to “Fear not, I will help you.”

 

Teach me to ALWAYS rest in the confidence I have in You because Your Word tells me that it will be richly rewarded. Help me persevere so that when I have done Your will, God, I will receive what You have promised. And help me keep Your commandments and do the things that are pleasing in Your sight so I can receive whatever I ask from You, including the restoration of my marriage.

 

I boldly ask for faith enabling me to speak to mountains and make them move, and the confidence and assurance that nothing is impossible. Thank You, Lord, that I can do all things through Christ Who strengthens me, and That with You, nothing is impossible, including living my life full of love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness and self-control; even during this time of trouble, which Your Word assures me You will turn into a gateway of hope. And thank You that Your Spirit intercedes for me, Your saint, in accordance with Your will, and that You are working all things together for my good because I love You and am called according to Your purpose. I thank You and praise You, Lord, that Your thoughts and plans for me and my family are for our welfare and peace and not for evil, which give me hope in our final outcome. And I thank You, Lord, that I can be still and know that You are God and that You will be exalted in all the earth and in heaven and in the restoration of my marriage.

 

And thank You for the comfort of knowing that even though my husband may have other plans in his heart, from You comes the reply of the tongue, and that the Words that come out of Your mouth do not return to You empty; that they will accomplish what You desire and the purpose for which You sent them! And thank You for the assurance that You honor and uphold the covenant of our marriage that was made when You witnessed our marriage vows, and that YOU will defend it against the treachery of unfaithfulness, divorce and remarriage.

 

For all this, I ask and give thanks in the most precious and powerful name of Jesus Christ, my Lord and Savior. Amen.

Pray Every Day for divine intervention . . . don't stop praying! With God all things are possible! Be persistent! Allow this time of separation to change you! So that when you get back together, you will help your spouse to live his/her life in the order of God's way too.

Marriage is a gift from God . . .

Every gift from God will be contested by Satan. Marriage is a gift from God. The very day you married, satan was angry. Satan was angry that Job's family was a source of delight to God, his provider. Look out, God's blessing on your home invites satan's attack. He will place thorns in your bed. He wants to be the third party in your marriage. He wants to agitate and disappoint, using your weaknesses. He inspires unrealistic expectations, diverts your focus from servant-hood to self-absorption. He fuels your imagination through television and unhealthy relationships, until God's presence cease to be the atmosphere of your home or the goal of your marriage. Beware of satan's inroads. Become a watchman over your family. Fight to save your marriage and chase satan away from your marriage.

Serious problems in my marriage . . . I need God first

Dear God! My husband and I are having serious problems in our marriage and I don't know what else to do to save my marriage. I want to work things out but I'm hurting, lonely and not sure he wants to stay together. I need help to figure out how to save my marriage and avoid divorce. However, I'm afraid that I'm running out of time. God, please help me!

Is this your daily cry to God or anyone else that can help you save your marriage? Well, although your marriage may be falling apart the good news is that God will never leave you or forsake you and your marriage can be saved. God is still rooting for you and your husband to work things out and may even bless you for your willingness and faithfulness to try and save your marriage.

God has the perfect plan not only for your marriage but also your life. The key is to recognize the plan God has laid out for you. The problem in our marriage and life for that matter is that often times we put God's plan for our marriage or life on the shelf because we think we have everything under control. The problem is we tend to be selfish, narrow minded and have limited vision. We think we know what's best but many times we make bad decisions that we later regret.

Please note that I once was in the same position thinking I had it all figured out and was working my own plan until I one day had to cry out to God "please help me figure out how to save my marriage". And guess what happened. If you said my marriage was saved you guessed right. If my marriage was saved then I believe just about any marriage can be saved

I have some simple but powerful actions you can take to begin to change your marriage and perhaps save your marriage.

To stop looking for how to save your marriage and have the marriage you so desire my advice to you is as follows:

1. Ask God daily to grant you serenity to accept the things you cannot change in your marriage, the courage to change the things you can and the wisdom to know the difference.

2. Pray specifically for your husband every day. Ask God to bless whatever work he does and give him wisdom and discernment in dealing with people he comes in contact with. Ask God to protect him and keep him from anything that is harmful to your marriage.

3. As God to show you areas in your marriage where you can grow and compliment your husband to be his soul mate and lover for life.

4. Finally, ask God each day to show you and your husband how to build a closer relationship with Him and each other.

God encourages us to seek and we will find, ask and it shall be given to us, knock and the door will be open.

Simply put, God is in your corner and wants to help you save your marriage. I hope you believe in your heart and mind and continue to seek and ask God for favor and blessings for your husband and your marriage.

The broken road . . .

Who is really influencing you . . .

Is there someone in your life who just rubs you the wrong way? Is it you wife . . . or husband? If there is, it may surprise you to learn that it’s not really that person who is creating the rub. There is someone else at work, your real enemy, and he may be using them in an attempt to gain an inroad to your life. To destroy your marriage . There is a spiritual war going on, and as a believer, you must be aware of it.

Many Christians have adopted a humanistic view of things. They do not realize the spiritual implication behind what is going on in their lives. What I mean by humanistic is that they only look at things on a surface level. They think most everything they encounter on a daily basis is either physical or natural.

The truth is, there is a battle raging every single day in the spiritual realm. That battle is for your heart and the hearts of every other person on earth. God is trying to influence people and draw them toward righteousness and toward Himself, to live consistent with Him so that His blessings can manifest in their lives.

Satan, on the other hand, is waging all-out war trying to steal the hearts of people away from God. He wants to fill their hearts with his trash and corruption. And honestly, although most Christians recognize this to a degree, I don’t think they realize how intense the warfare really is and how much their actions are contributing to it.

If I could sit and talk with each of you reading this, I would find that many of you aren’t aware of the spiritual significance behind what’s going on in your lives. You attribute much of what is happening to circumstances and therefore passively accept what comes your way. When you do that, you’re ignoring the intense battle that is being waged for your heart every single day.

The choices you make, the things you say, the actions you take, and what you believe about what is happening around you determines whether God or Satan dominates in your life. Satan cannot control you outside of your will. He cannot do anything without your cooperation and consent. But you need to recognize that you’re in a battle.

Many people choose not to believe that, but whether they do or not, the fact is that it’s taking place. Your unwillingness to engage in battle doesn’t mean that the battle isn’t raging; it just means you’re going to lose. But once you realize the battle is real, you can then learn to recognize what’s going on and take the proper action to improve your situation. You can resist the devil.

James 4:7 says,

“Submit yourselves therefore to God. Resist the devil, and he will flee from you.”

Ephesians 6:10-12 reads,

“Finally my brethren, be strong in the Lord, and in the power of his might. Put on the whole armour of God, that ye may be able to stand against the wiles of the devil. For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places.”

This is referring to demonic powers. There’s a chain of command, an authority structure in the demonic realm, and this is listing these different levels. But notice that it says you are not wrestling against flesh and blood. Much that goes on in your life is not just human.

I’m not going to get into this thing about, “Are people possessed, oppressed, or depressed?” I believe it’s useless to debate that. In the Greek where the Bible says a person was demon possessed, the word literally means “demonized.” It just means they were under the control of the devil. Christianity has tried to make something out of possessed, oppressed, or depressed. But it’s not in Scripture.

The fact is that people are being influenced and controlled and used by the devil; they really are. This needs to be said because there are a lot of people who honestly believe that all the demons are in Africa.

It’s not the person sitting next to you at work, it’s not your neighbor, and it’s certainly not your husband or your wife that’s the problem. Anyone who is not paying attention can be influenced and inspired and used of Satan to come against you. If you were to recognize that, it would make a huge difference in the way you respond to them.

For instance, I get a lot of hate mail. There was a time when I took what was said personally. But I’ve come to realize that Satan uses these in an attempt to get my attention off of what God has told me to do. Now I look beyond the person, recognizing that Satan is just using them. That allows me to keep it in the right perspective.

I’ve had good friends come against me and do some pretty mean things. And you know what, I was able to look right past what they did and forgive them. I could see that Satan was taking advantage of them to hurt me through some weak area in their lives. When you finally see that, you don’t get angry or bitter with the person, and you are able walk in forgiveness. Then, when they do turn around, the relationship can be reestablished.

There are also times when you have to engage the enemy directly, even if the enemy is using a friend. That’s exactly what Jesus did when he rebuked Peter, saying, “Get behind me Satan.” That was the same day Jesus asked Peter, “Who do you say I am?” And Peter, inspired by the Holy Spirit, said, “You are the CHRIST, the Son of the living God.”

In Matthew 16:15-17, it says,

“He saith unto them, But whom say ye that I am? And Simon Peter answered and said, Thou art the Christ, the Son of the living God. And Jesus answered and said unto him, Blessed art thou, Simon Barjona: for flesh and blood hath not revealed it unto thee, but my Father which is in heaven.”

After this, Jesus began to talk about what was going to happen to Him: “They’re going to take Me, they’re going to kill Me, and I will rise again on the third day.” And this same Peter who had been inspired and controlled by the Holy Spirit just moments before began to rebuke Jesus, saying, “Be it far from You, Lord. This will never happen to You. I’m going to stand here, and the rest of us will defend You, but we are not going to allow this to happen to You.”

Then Jesus turned and spoke these words to Peter: “Get behind me Satan.” I’m sure Peter was shocked, but Jesus wasn’t really talking to him; He was talking about Satan to Satan, the one who was controlling Peter. Peter’s words were not coming from God; they were inconsistent with the will of God. Peter was being inspired and controlled by the devil in the things he said.

Now, that’s a pretty strong statement, and there are a lot of people that honestly think this is a little over the top. They think they don’t need to respond to people this way. But I can guarantee you that there are times that Satan is speaking directly to you through people. He is using people to get at you. Whether you recognize it or not, this goes on much more than you know. You are in a spiritual war.

I tell you there is a supernatural war waging today for your heart and mind. In fact, for some of you right now, the devil is trying to oppose the words you are reading in this letter. He wants to discredit them and cause you to ignore or reject them. The Holy Spirit, on the other hand, is bearing witness in your heart and trying to get you to open up and receive these words. It’s spiritual warfare.

To win in this war, you must know who you are and the authority you have as a believer. To help, I have a teaching series called The Believer’s Authority. Don’t go another day without understanding how to defeat the real enemy. You have the power and authority to do it, and now it’s time to use it.

I need help God!

  God - Help My Marriage!
 

 By: Norm & Kathleen Rasmussen

Going through marital problems at the moment?  Hopefully not.  But if you are, or to prepare for any problems that might develop later on, here is some insight that will patch up almost any strained relationship. 

A person becomes hurt by something a mate says or does to the other, right?  There is a way to get God’s grace into a difficult relationship and heal it so fast you might consider the technique a “miracle.” 

The “customary” way to patch up a troubled relationship is when the offending party admits their guilt to the other person, and forgiveness is granted.  This “miracle” technique is just the OPPOSITE.  Each person admits out loud to God and the otherperson that they each assume full responsibility for being the guilty person themselves . . . even if they are not.  By humbling oneself in this matter … God’s spirit is freely released to convict all wrongdoing … possibly in both couples … then healing will begin very quickly. 

Imagine if you can now  - God doing the speaking:

“When a husband and wife are having conflict, the best thing they can do is come to Me in prayer – confessional prayer.  The husband should be the first to set the example to his wife, so she can hear him pray.  However, if he will not, then the woman must be first.  He should pray out loud in the following manner: 

‘Lord, I come to You right now, and I ask forgiveness for offending You this day.  I now receive Your forgiveness.  I also ask that You help my wife to forgive me for what I’ve said and/or done to hurt her. 

‘And now, Lord, I admit 100% responsibility for the conflict in our marriage.  I refuse to cast any blame on my wife.  I confess to You, and to her, that I’m the one to blame for our conflict, no matter what has happened.

‘Now Lord, as an act of humbling myself to You and my wife, I ask that you give us sufficient grace in this situation so we can be a peace with each other, and to have our love restored.’

Now it’s the wife’s turn.  She is to pray the identical prayer.  She’s to confess before God and her husband that she’s 100% responsible for the conflict in the marriage, no matter what has happened, just like her mate did.  Not 1% or 99%; fully 100% at fault.

The natural mind says this is crazy.  “Why should I admit fault when it isn’t my fault?”  The question is:  Do you want your relationship to be restored or not?  Pride and anger are usually the two reasons why both parties have such a difficult time entering into this type of a covenant when they are having conflict. 

If a couple will make a covenant with each other during a time of tranquility in their relationship that they will promise to use this “miracle” technique in the future if it is ever needed … it will be much easier to implement once feelings get hurt. 

“God resists the proud, but gives grace to the humble.”  (James 4:6 & 1 Peter 5:5). What better way for two people to get God’s grace into their strained marriage than both admitting out loud to each other and to God that they themselves are to blame (even though they may not be), rather than blaming the other person for being at fault?

Give it a try.  It’s guaranteed to get the devil out of your marriage faster than you can call a divorce lawyer, and a whole lot cheaper.

That Last Thread Of Hope

Nancy Hoback

When you're at the end of your rope
And you feel like your life is sinking,
Reach out to Jesus, for He is
Your last and only ray of hope.

Overcome by problems and backed
Into a corner, each and everyday,
Reach out for Jesus and
You'll never be dismayed.

If complications from a troubled marriage, illness, or
Financial burdens have you hanging by a thread ~
God will guide you to the shore.
For, on His promises you can depend.

Life, in these trying times, aren't always easy
And that road becomes hard to walk.
Listen, with an attentive heart.
For, Jesus is there to talk.

Never give up and throw in the towel.
Our Savior has never left you.
He has been there all the while.

When you're hanging by a thread
And on that last string,
Hang on to Jesus and
To Him you can cling.

If you should slip and fall,
Reach out for that hem of His garment.
With the Master, you can have it all.

Don't ever let go of that last thread of hope.
