Praying for Your Spouse: Faith
And without faith it is impossible to please God, because anyone who comes to him must believe that he exists and that he rewards those who earnestly seek him—Hebrews 11:6.
Faith is a big part of marriage. Not necessarily faith in oneself or faith in our mate, but faith in the One who brought us together in this covenant in the first place. I know there have been times in my marriage when the only reason it made sense to obey God and forgive my spouse or serve my mate was because God’s Word told me to and I have faith in the author of that Word.
A grace-filled marriage is not dependent upon our limited ability to love our spouse. It’s dependent upon Him whose love is limitless. Faith gets us there because faith is not wishful thinking. It’s belief in a God who can do all things (even change the heart of our spouse).
There are many things in a marriage that can fill our hearts with regret or even fear. But when it comes to exercising faith in our marriage, if fear comes knocking at our door, let faith answer and there’ll be no one there.
More than anything, I want to please you. Help me to have faith that you love me and my spouse so much more than we can ever love each other and that you have our best interests at heart. When I get weary, disappointed and even want to give up, draw me to your heart and let me bask in your love.
