A Promise Ready Stander

It's been awhile since I've written a devotion, but i felt the prompting of the Holy Spirit to write and tell you all what God has been sharing and teaching me and wants me to teach you.   God has been speaking to me so much lately, and I know that we all need encouragement, so please open your heart to hear what God is saying to his people.

First, God wants you all to know, as standers, that He wants you to LET GO of your spouse.  WHOA KRYSTAL!  What does that mean?  For years as a stander, I've often heard that we need to let go, and so many of us do not know what that means, here is the meaning.  Quit focusing on your spouse.  Quit looking at what your spouse is doing, quit being anxious, turn your WHOLE FOCUS on God.  Nothing less than everything.   

Come to a complete point of contentment in your stand.  If you haven't, if you're still anxious and doubting or wondering if God will really restore your marriage, then you haven't let go.  LET GO and LET GOD move.   Don't worry about your spouse!  They are not too far gone that God cannot reach them!  They are not so bad that God cannot fix them! 

Second,  God recently told me that He will not bring a prodigal spouse home to a broken hearted stander.  As a stander, this is time for you to grow in Him!   Let God heal your broken heart.  If you are still broken hearted, you need more time.  Let God do a complete and total work in you.  When God does bring your spouse back, you need to be strong enough to:

1.  Fight the enemy.  Satan is not gonna sit back and hand you a restored marriage on a silver platter.  Be prepared to pray and keep your promise.

2.  Rebuild.  This is where reconciliation takes place.  It's gonna be an adjustment for you both, and for your children should there be any involved.   

Your prodigal spouse needs to see strength in you.  They don't need to come back to a stander that is still holding on to the past.   They need to come home to a clean slate.  Nobody wants to come home to have their past and hurt and pain brought up.  You need to be healed, and have forgiveness ready for whatever has happened, and whatever may arise.  Let God make you into a promise-ready stander. 

If God seems to be silent right now, don't worry.  Just as a doctor is quiet when he is doing His work, God may not say much while He is binding your wounds.  When you're healed and whole and ready to hear what He has to say, you can rest assured that He's gonna start speaking to you.  In the silence is where God does the best work. Spend time with Him, and in His word, getting to know Him.  One thing God has spoken to me recently, He said "Teach my people to be more like Me."  Wow!  I want to be more like Him.  The purpose of this trial and storm is to teach us to be more like Him.  I can finally say that I am thankful for this trial, because it has made me into the woman of God and soldier that I am today.

I am working on making myself a promise ready stander.   Are you promise ready?

Stand Strong,
Krystal Chretien


Krystal Chretien began working under Ess-Jee Rautenbach’s leadership in helping others with troubled marriage in late 2010.  After facing troubles in her own marriage, her passion became helping God’s people recover from rejection and point them to Jesus, the author and finisher of restored marriages. 

Becoming a part of Stand For Your Marriage Ministries set the pace for Krystal to get a minister’s license, and is very active in ministry in her home church.
