Standing for marriage restoration, NO MATTER WHAT WE HEAR AND NO MATTER WHAT WE SEE, is NOT possible without KNOWING that Satan is a liar and the word of God is truth! If we stand on ANY other foundation than that, we are just like the foolish man who built his house on sand, and in Matthew 7:26-27, Jesus warned But everyone who hears these words of mine and does not put them into practice is like a foolish man who built his house on sand. The rain came down, the streams rose, and the winds blew and beat against that house, and it fell with a great crash.” If we know what God’s word says and don’t walk (and talk) in accordance with it, or if we won’t put ALL of our hope and confidence in it, we too will see our dreams for marriage restoration come down with a mighty crash. But if we refuse to believe the lies of the devil, who ALWAYS does his UTMOST to convince us that God is the liar and that the restoration of our marriage is not going to happen; if we rely on GOD to do the seemingly impossible, we will be like the wise man who built his house on the solid rock, and in Matthew 7:24-25, Jesus promised “Therefore everyone who hears these words of mine and puts them into practice is like a wise man who built his house on the rock. The rain came down, the streams rose, and the winds blew and beat against that house; yet it did not fall, because it had its foundation on the rock. Jesus is THE ROCK, so when we believe His word and put our trust in it, walking and TALKING in accordance with it, NOTHING IS IMPOSSIBLE FOR US, INCLUDING THE RESTORATION OF THE MOST HOPELESS MARRIAGES!
And when we’re discouraged and feel like the trials are too great to endure, we can read Hebrews 12, because it’s so applicable when we’re standing for marriage restoration. God’s word CANNOT BE SHAKEN! We MUST remember that, and when we take a stand for the restoration of our marriages, we do it in OBEDIENCE to God, whose will does not change with time or circumstances, so neither should ours. Many times God creates or allows trials and circumstances to test our commitment, faith and obedience. So when our circumstances tell us ANYTHING contrary to the word of God, we MUST say out loud “Satan, you are a liar and the word of God is truth!” JUST DON’T GIVE UP!
Just about the only thing we have control of in our current circumstances is our minds, so let’s make up our minds to stand on the word of God, NO MATTER WHAT!
I hope you will be as encouraged as I was by yesterday’s phrophecies from Bill and Marsha Burns, which you can subscribe to here, and which so amazingly seem to coincide with the events in my own life, as they all have for the last week or so. What a blessing they are, so let’s take heed to the anointed words they speak as we stand in obedience to the call God has placed in our hearts and on our lives.

The Trumpet by Bill Burns
June 12, 2006: The revival of this day has begun. I have looked down from glory and do speak forth in purity, and My love does saturate My people. I have watched over you these years. I have seen the trouble and the attacks against you. I have seen all that Satan has tried to bring to you that would promote destruction in your life. Yet, you have stood against him, and you are standing against him with a willing heart and a refusal to move away from what I have called you to. You have found favor in My heart, says the Lord, and I will pour out of My Spirit. The prayer that you have prayed, let it be done on earth as it is in heaven, shall indeed take place. You will witness this with your own eyes, for the greatest of all revivals in the history of mankind is beginning. Step out. Believe with all of your heart, and allow this word to cause your heart to tremble as you say, “Lord God, let it be unto me according to Your word.” Set yourself to be found within the constraint of this revival, and let your mind so think upon Me, and let your spirit so run after Me that I am caught by you. Let My glory be revealed among you, My people. It is written that My Word never returns unto Me void, says the Lord. Let the revival begin in the hearts of My people!

June 12, 2006: I am releasing you! You are being released from every bondage and everything that has held you in the past. That release is coming to you now. I am breaking soul ties and everything that has kept you from moving forward right now … right now … right now, says the Lord. I am releasing you NOW, says the Lord.
Galatians 5:1 Stand fast therefore in the liberty by which Christ has made us free, and do not be entangled again with a yoke of bondage.
