How to Stand For your Marriage


“For the unbelieving husband has been sanctified through his wife, and the unbelieving wife has been sanctified through her believing husband” (1Corinthians 7:14 NIV).


To stand for your marriage means that you take up a specific position. You decide that you’re not going to conform to the world’s ways and solutions, but do what the Lord wants us to do when our marriage goes sour. To stand for one’s marriage may sound simple, but it goes against everything the world teaches and what your flesh desires. To stand for your spouse is love in action.

To stand you must have endurance and patience. You must keep yourself full with the Word of God. Always keep your eyes on Jesus and not your circumstances. The battle is not ours but God’s, all I have to do is stand and endure. I ask the Lord to change me first before He starts the change in my beloved.
Our God is the God of restoration and reconciliation. He never ever gave up on us, and He wants the same from us; to never ever give up on our beloveds.

The Lord wanted me to show others who are in the same position, that there is hope, even if it seems that there is none.

  1. I totally agree. I am in the middle of my stand right now but I have compiled a blog of resources for other standers with helpful scriptures, ministry sites, prayer lines, bibles and devotionals, books etc that helped me along in my journey. Still waiting, but I know the victory is coming!!
    God bless!
