Restoring Marriages Bible Study: Day 10-Faith in God

James 1:6 is a verse that speaks to my heart quite often.

But let him ask in faith, with no doubting, for he who doubts is like a wave of the sea driven and tossed by the wind. (NKJV)

Many times we bring requests to God. We may be sincere in our asking and earnestly seek God. However, many times we walk away not believing that God will hear and answer our requests.

I am sure you have asked God for help in your marriage many times. You may have asked God to heal your hurts. You may have asked God to help bring change in your spouse. There are just so many things that we ask God!

Some things that I have come to God about are forgiveness, healing, help with anger, my husband, my marriage, my emotions, etc. This list can go on and on.

But, what we go to God with is not as important as the faith we have in God.

Anything that I ask God of, He hears me. But, do I really believe that? How is my faith in God? Do I believe that God really wants to heal and restore my marriage? Do I trust God that He can bring back love into my marriage? Take a few moments to ask yourself what you believe about the requests you send to God. Do you have faith that God is working in your situation right now? When you pray, do you realize that our holy God is truly listening?

Let’s look at James 1:6 together again:

But let him ask in faith, with no doubting, for he who doubts is like a wave of the sea driven and tossed by the wind.

God has spoken to us to have faith. We are not to doubt God’s ability in what we ask. Once we come to God and spend time talking to Him about whatever is on our hearts, we are to truly believe. We are to believe that God is working to help us with our request.

Have you asked God to come into your marriage? Have you asked God to heal your heart so that you can show true forgiveness? Have you asked Him to guide you in each step during your day? If you have asked those things, now is the time to believe that God is working to grant your request. We already know that a loving marriage is in line with God’s Word. So, now we have to believe that God is putting that in place. Our loving, perfect God cares so much about you that He hears what you are asking Him. He wants to work in your favor and bring blessings to your life.

Dear God,

We thank You so much that You hear us. We thank You that You are in our marriage right now. God, You know what requests we bring to You tonight. We ask that You restore our marriage. We ask that You help us to grow closer each day. But, we also ask that our faith grows. God, we believe that You are working in our life right now. You can make anything happen. You can bring blessings into our life. So, God, we will have the faith that You are listening to each prayer we pray. We love You so much and thank You for this wonderful chance to renew our marriage.

In Jesus’ Name, Amen

  1. dear Robi, I have read through all the bible studies tonight, it is a surprise that I have not done them so far, I think I have been hoping my husband and I would do them together. but we still may, I have prayed the prayers, for us, today, thank you, please pray for us, we had a terrible argument about 10 days ago and my husband is especially discouraged, he had a lot of temper and expressed it very badly, now he is reading a book on anger from the counselor, I’m not sure of the title or author , he takes it to work with him, but during sharing this morning he told me he is still very sad and depressed., todays bible study is good because we both need faith that God can truly heal this hurt, not just the past unfaithfulness, but the rage and anger of just recently, my husband knows that he wasn’t losing his temper like this before in our marriage but as sometimes, I feel triggered and emotional and he just gets emotional too and never having learned to handle his emotions he boiled over. He is ashamed and feels so discouraged, he can’t believe he has treated me the way he has–especially now while we are trying to start over and rebuild from unfaithfulness, I also am shook up by it but I think he hurts over it even more than me, please pray that God will deliver him from temper just like he has from lust and porn etc. In colossians it says that we are to put off the old man and sexual immorality is mentioned along with wrath, so I believe God can do this, that my husband is new and in Christ and can put on the new man. Please pray God will help him perhaps this Christian book on anger perhaps time, but we are both aching, for the new ness and hope we started to have when everything came out and we started to heal, pray for my faith , because I need the encouragement that you gave tonight, that I must believe God hears me, please pray that God will help us in our devotional time, we are doing it but sometimes it feels so forced , my husband wants to but when he goes to pray things just don’t come out easily, or I will take over, pray God will help me to be a good listener to my husband and that He will guide our reading of the word and other devotional books which we have a good collection of now, but only so much time we’re spending reading together, I am thinking of asking him to go through your bible studies with me during our time, please pray for Gods guidance in that.. Thank you so much,

  2. Hi Kayla,
    I am praying for you and your husband. I’m sorry you’re both going through this. I know what you mean because my husband has also experienced a lot of anger. You are doing all the right things and following God through it all. You are an encouragement to me and I know you are to many others as well. Thank you for your honesty. I’m praying that you will both be healed of the impact of negative emotion. God be with you Kayla.
