Any bad habit starts with believing a lie. Some ideas are widespread in today's society and can very quickly destroy a marriage. (End of the series)
Lie 7: "Breaking the marriage alliance will not hurt neither my children nor me"
When a divorce breaks in a family, it causes injury, it always leaves scars. Many testify to its effects many years later. The truth is that many of the consequences of divorce never disappear.
A youth pastor gave this testimony: "I was 5 years old when my parents divorced, and it was very difficult for me to receive God as a Father and to trust people because the people I trusted most were divided. was really hard to accept the love of others because I constantly asked myself questions about the sincerity of their love, I also developed a fear of marriage, would I follow the trend of divorce because my parents and my grandparents had divorced? " The father of this young pastor wrote to him and said: "It was the worst decision I made in my life. It was terrible. It hurt you. It hurts our family. When I divorced your mother, I divorced our family because I broke the alliance that united us. "This young pastor was finally restored when his parents came to Christ.
Lie # 8: "There is no hope for my marriage - it can not be restored"
This lie is probably the most devastating of all. No devastated marriage is irreparable! Our God is the God of the impossible. He is able to do what seems impossible humanly. In a marriage out of breath, he just needs two consenting parties, because the two partners want to be reconciled, want to receive from him the keys to succeed and learn to love each other again.
God knows how to get us out of the bad situations in which we have immersed ourselves. The testimonies are numerous as well in the past generations as in ours. He is the one who makes water flow in the desert. He is the One who creates a path when everything seems closed. He who shaped the earth in the middle of a surface in which chaos reigned is able today to save a couple who cries to Him. It's all about will and faith.
In Mark 9: 14-26, the Bible gives us a testimony. It relates in particular a dialogue between Christ Jesus, and a desperate father facing the situation of his son possessed and suffering:
Jesus asked the father, How much time is it for him? Since his childhood, he replied. And often the spirit has thrown it into the fire and into the water to destroy it. But, if you can help, come to our rescue, have compassion for us. Jesus said to him, "If you can!" All things are possible to him who believes.
To confess "There is no hope for my marriage" is to manifest unbelief in the Creator of the universe and to make God a liar because He Himself said " All is possible to those who believe ". There is nothing that is impossible for God.
