Praying for Your Spouse to Return

Subject: Worth Praying For my husband to be back?

Greetings, 

Thank you so much for the wisdom shared in your article(are all marriages of God?); I have indeed been blessed by it.

I met my husband as an illegal immigrant in the UK and after helping him secure his stay in the country, now living with another woman, with whom he has an 8-month old baby.

My wish before I met him was to get married before having children. I was robbed of this privilege in helping him to secure his stay as we were advised that his spousal visa application would be more successful if he shows he has a family in the UK. I regret so much that I disappointed God and myself but I have asked for forgiveness and I know He has indeed forgiven me. The application was indeed a success but it has turned out he only came into my life for what he could could gain from me. 

Despite attempts to get him to do what is right, he has left me to raise our two daughters(two and five years of age) on my own. He shows no care for them and I. He really has been wicked towards the children and I.

I’m still praying for God to change his heart but sometimes, I feel I am praying in vain as doubt it is not right to pray for him to be back, though that is the only decision that gives me peace! 

Please advise me. I just want to live by His will, not mine! 

I have shortened my story in order to be as concise as possible, please feel free to ask as many questions as you need, to give me the best help for I have suffered far too long because of this situation.

I would like to thank you for the work that you are doing in the Lord; may God richly bless you…

I pray for God’s guidance all the way, Amen.

Many thanks in advance for you help and kind regards, 

Sylvia

Hi Sylvia,

How did our article about all marriages not being of God give you peace? Was it because you realized that your marriage isn’t of God? If so, then you need to let it go and stop praying for the man you married to return. That would be an evil thing. 

And even if your marriage was of God, we would counsel you to stop praying for God to do your will. Remember what is written in the Word of God:

1 Corinthians 7:13-15 EMTV

(13)  And a wife who has an unbelieving husband, if he consents to live with her, let her not divorce him.
(14)  For the unbelieving husband has been sanctified by the wife, and the unbelieving wife has been sanctified by the husband; otherwise your children would be unclean, but now they are holy.
(15)  But if the unbelieving spouse separates, let him or her separate; the brother or the sister has not been bound in such cases; but God has called us to peace.

So now you know what to do if you want to live by the Lord’s will and not your own. 

Are you continuing to read on our site, Sylvia? Tell us more about your spiritual life and history. Give us some details, too. 

Paul and Victor

As a Christian I am saddened by all of you. Your nasty banter is exactly what turns non believers away from Christianity. You lost more than you gained in this exchange.  My faith remains in Jesus.

People seeking the Truth are turned towards Christ when they see our exposure of false messiahs like Clayton’s artificial Jesus. They are so thankful that light has come to cut through the darkness of religious pretense and confusion. It’s idolaters like you who are offended and turn away from the Truth, “Christian” heathen whose empty Opinion is condemned by the Word of God made flesh.  2 Corinthians 11:13-15 MKJV (13)  For such ones are false apostles, deceitful workers, transforming themselves into the apostles of Christ. (14)  Did not even Satan marvelously transform himself into an angel of light? (15)  Therefore it is no great thing if his ministers also transform themselves as ministers of righteousness, whose end shall be according to their works.

Faith in Christ Leads One to Fulfilling the Law
From: Adam To: The Path of Truth Sent: Monday, September 12, 2016 2:09 PM Subject: Religious spirits Hi I have recently heard of Norman grub at the home fellowship I go. I saw what you had to say about him, False teacher you say. I believe What Norman grub taught from what I've heard so far is the difference between pleasing God in the flesh, and pleasing God in the spirit. God desires sons not religious Pharisees. Remember it's the goodness of God that leads us to repentance but by the fear of the Lord one departs from evil. Not the other way round The high people in society that rejected Jesus were those religious leaders that could not receive Jesus by faith. We need to die to ourselves completely our own ideas our own ways and just believe in the finished work of Christ alone for without faith it's impossible to please God so if you think you can please God in the flesh make sure you keep the whole law with nothing left undone.

Certainly not! On the contrary, we establish the Law” (Romans 3:31 EMTV). The faith of Christ has led us to fulfill the Law, Adam, by His righteousness, something we could never do in our own strength. It seems you may agree, at least in concept. But you’ve never had the reality of this precious truth, as with Nor...

I think you should be judging your self righteousness not others. You think you have the truth and no one else does. You are just human buddy!!! Just like the rest of us. You are not Jesus the only judge and the only righteous in and of Himself. You and me and everyone else can only be righteous through Jesus Christ. You in my opinion don’t even know Jesus. You are too self righteous to know him.
