Greetings Prayer Warriors,
As the weather changes, we always seek a shield. If it’s rainy we grab an umbrella, if it’s sunny we need a hat or visor, if it’s gray and cloudy we seek a brighter light indoors. We are clear on what we need to help us adjust to unpredictable changes.
However, when the climate of one’s marriage changes, one is not so clear on what their shield should be. Food? Alcohol? Sleep? Infidelity? Friends? Other?
All who trust in you will be glad and forever shout for joy. You will protect them and those will rejoice in you who love your name. Psalm 5:12
There is no better shield, shelter, or protection than the Lord. He will not eliminate the storms in your marriage, but he will prevent their destruction. He wants you to call out His name, ask for His help, and flee to His comforting embrace.
On the day I cried out, you answered; you strengthened my spirit.
Pray for marriages, that they will not self-destruct as each turns to self-medicate their pain. Instead may each spouse humble them selves, kneel in prayer recognizing that they have no real power against the storm, and ask the Lord to be their hope, their peace, their strength, and their unshakeable bond.
God’s way is unerring; the LORD’s promise is refined; he is a shield for all who take refuge in him. Deuteronomy 18:31
Peace, Joy, and Love,
His love for us is incomprehensible. Accept it and pass it on!
