Do you know what I love more than anything? Sharing testimonies, because testimonies say, “Do it again.” Literally, that’s what they mean. So I want to share a testimony about a time where I saw a miracle breakthrough in a marriage that was absolutely hopeless.
So I had been asked to preach at my small local church, and I was extremely nervous, because even though I lead worship all the time, preaching feels a lot different. And so, I got up there with this word from the Lord that felt very heavy to deliver to this body, but I felt the Lord just prompt me that we were going to go after inner healing, which is something you usually do one-on-one with people. But today I felt the Lord say that He wanted to do some healing in people’s minds and their hearts and their relationships.
So I got done with my preach. Everybody was, you know, very excited, like feeling the Holy Spirit, all the things. And this lady came up to me and said, “Would you pray with me over my marriage?” And I said, “Yes, absolutely.” And I was like, “Where’s your husband?” And she was like,”No, no, you don’t understand. He’s not here. He has not stepped foot in a church in over 20 years.” And I was like, “Wow, like what’s going on?” And she proceeded to tell me about all of the challenges that her and her husband had been facing, and that they were literally days away from signing divorce papers. And they had been separated. There was no hope for the marriage. And so I prayed with this woman and honestly I prayed with her and then I didn’t think much of it because, honestly, I didn’t really believe that the Lord was going to break through in this situation. How terrible is that, right? But come to find out the next week that woman showed up and right behind her was her husband. He had called her that week after months of them not speaking, they went on a date, they went to counseling, and they began fixing their marriage. They are still married and happy. And not only that, they’re running a food outreach ministry in their county together that they do every single week and they’re happily married. And I still talk to them to this day.
So if you need breakthrough in relationships, today’s your day. We’re going to break through in this. Jesus, I thank you that relationships are your design. Marriage is your design. It was your idea. And that all we have to do is partner with you and you will bring breakthrough. God, I thank you. Where doors have been closed, where feelings have been hurt, where deep trauma has been sustained, that you can fix in one moment, what would take us normally years to fix on our own. You can fix that in a moment of your presence. So we welcome you, Holy Spirit, into this situation.
And I want you to just picture the Holy Spirit, filling up like a cup with water inside of it. He’s filling up this relationship that’s been broken, that you’ve been asking the Lord to repair. Whether it be with your children, whether it be with your spouse, whether it be with distant relatives, whether it be with a friend or a family member that you haven’t talked to in a really long time. The Lord is refreshing and refilling today, and He’s healing and mending broken places. Thank you, Jesus. We receive your ministry, Holy Spirit. And we promise to be obedient to the prompting that you have in our life, so that we can repair the relationships that you want us to have. In Jesus’ name. Amen.
