Healing For Your Marriage
"So then, they are no longer two but one flesh. Therefore what God has joined together, let not man separate.” Matthew 19:6 NKJV
One newspaper headline some years ago was that "lawyers lament the high rate of divorce in the country". Divorce rates, according to reports, are on the increase. In the world, the United States of America and the United Kingdom are said to be the countries with the highest rates of divorce.
We've got to understand that divorce is not the perfect will of God. Malachi 2:16 actually says that God hates divorce. Brothers and sisters, just as God heals broken bodies and hearts, He heals broken marriages and relationships too.
It doesn't matter how bad things are right now, God can still heal and restore your marriage. The Bible says that the heart of a king is in the hand of God, and that He turns it wherever He wills. Your spouse may be very difficult and stubborn but I assure you that God can change him or her. Today, I speak peace to your home; I speak calmness, I speak love and restoration, in the name of Jesus. Let there be a restoration of love and happiness! Let there be a restoration of understanding and mutual respect, in the name of Jesus. No strange man or woman will succeed in ruining your marriage; I destroy their hold, in the name of Jesus! Amen!
