I was laying in bed just pondering my memories with Jesus as a little girl and He showed me why fishing has been a favorite thing to do in my life. I have always loved fishing since a very young age!! As the sun would set I was reminded that it was time to cast the last cast for the day and to reel in whatever I had on my line, and most of the time it was just my hook but I didn’t mind, I was already planning to go again the next day. I would sit there for hours and enjoy the peace away from the many distractions of the world and I would have all these life questions I’d be thinking about. I would talk to Jesus and ask Him questions and that’s how we spent most of our time together as a lil girl, He’s the one who put the love of fishing within me. It’s awesome to know that God Almighty still enjoys fishing till this very day, we get to fish together daily now! Jesus is the BEST fisherman. He loves to FISH and He doesn’t stop as the sun sets….He keeps on casting through out the night. Fishing takes JESUS’ LOVE & Patience. He is the best teacher, He knows exactly what type of net to cast (love, words of life, healing and counsel) and when to draw the fish (hearts of people) into Himself. This beautiful miracle happens in His perfect timing. Jesus knows exactly what He’s doing, I love fishing with my Abba!! He ENJOYS fishing with His children ❤

JESUS RESTORES MARRIAGE to those whom put their trust in Him. I am a witness of HIS MAGNIFICENT POWER, I am speaking out of experience, this is TRUTH, this is my testimony for JESUS. JESUS is restoring my marriage that I almost destroyed. Long story short, I left my husband for a while, I was an adulterer and because JESUS helped me to overcome bitterness, anger and many other things, He lead me to return to my husband. He made it very clear to me, that it was HIS will that we reconcile. Jesus told me that HE was going to restore our marriage, and HE IS!!! I say “is” because both spouses MUST submit to JESUS for a marriage to be completely restored in HIM, and He IS wooing my husband. JESUS gave my husband a heart to love and forgive me. JESUS’ will is to restore the covenant marriage. WHY? Because THERE IS POWER IN HIS NAME!! If both husband and wife are WALKING IN THE FULL CHARACTER of GOD ALMIGHTY, IT WILL BE TILL DEATH DO YOU PART. They will be walking in HIS SPIRIT, HIS LOVE. His love is PATIENT, LONG-SUFFERING, KIND, IT IS NOT HAUGHTY OR PROUD, IT IS NOT SELFISH OR EASILY ANGERED, IT DOES NOT REJOICE IN SIN, IT BEARS ALL THINGS, ENDURES ALL THINGS, IT IS TRUTH, IT DOES >>>NOT<<< FAIL!!
However, sadly.. not every spouse is in agreement nor willing to work for their marriage to be restored, God’s will for a person in that situation is to REMAIN celibate and PRAY for their spouses soul and for restoration. WHY? Why would someone WAIT for their spouse to return? WHY would they wait EVEN if their spouse “remarried” another? Why not just get remarried and move on?? BECAUSE Jesus Himself teaches us HIS LOVE in the very way that HE SUFFERED and HE AWAITS His bride to return to HIM! Think of all the things that we have put JESUS through, we have committed spiritual adultery against HIM, we have abused HIM, we have ignored and neglected Him, we have forgotten Him and HE WAS WILLING TO WAIT FOR US TO REPENT SO THAT HE COULD FORGIVE ALL OF THE HEARTACHE WE CAUSED HIM! JESUS doesn’t want anyone going to hell. We are expected to forgive and to love as HE forgives and loves. One must learn LOVE and CARE about their spouses soul.People who are getting divorced and remarrying others are holding onto unforgiveness, and their actions show that they are NOT WILLING to forgive their spouse, nor are they willing to submit to the WILL of JESUS as they continue in adultery, walking by flesh and NOT by GOD’S SPIRIT. Living in adultery is sin. The wage of sin is DEATH. JESUS’ will is to strengthen the husband and wife, buy teaching them both how to overcome bitterness, anger, and unforgiveness and this happens by loving one another WITH HIS LOVE.
What is a covenant marriage in Gods eyes? It’s when two people are joined together for the first time in marriage, neither having been married. What happens if one spouse in a covenant marriage becomes born of GOD’S spirit and the other is not, what then? YOU STAY MARRIED, and PRAY FOR YOUR SPOUSE!And the BEAUTIFUL point in all of this is, JESUS CHRIST RECEIVES ALL GLORY.If you are in adultery, now is the time to submit your life unto the LORD. JESUS SAID, NO Adulterer will inherit the kingdom of God. JESUS said this is a wicked, adulterous generation! To repent, means to turn BACK to God. This would mean that if you are in a 2nd, 3rd+ marriage, His will is for you to REPENT (leave) and turn back to JESUS, your first love. If your spouse is not willing to take you back, you remain celibate and obedient to the calling of JESUS, because that is your role as husband/wife. JESUS loves you, go to HIM for all counsel.
1 Corinthians 6:9-10Know ye not that the unrighteous shall not inherit the kingdom of God? Be not deceived: neither fornicators, nor idolaters, nor adulterers, nor effeminate, nor abusers of themselves with mankind, Nor thieves, nor covetous, nor drunkards, nor revilers, nor extortioners, shall inherit the kingdom of God.
Hebrews 13:4 Marriage ishonourable in all, and the bed undefiled: but whoremongers and adulterers God will judge.
Luke 16:18 Whosoever putteth away his wife, and marrieth another, committeth adultery: and whosoever marrieth her that is put away from herhusband committeth adultery.
Mark 10:2-12 And the Pharisees came to him, and asked him, Is it lawful for a man to put away his wife? tempting him. And he answered and said unto them, What did Moses command you? And they said, Moses suffered to write a bill of divorcement, and to put her away. And Jesus answered and said unto them, For the hardness of your heart he wrote you this precept. But from the beginning of the creation God made them male and female. For this cause shall a man leave his father and mother, and cleave to his wife; And they twain shall be one flesh: so then they are no more twain, but one flesh. What therefore God hath joined together, let not man put asunder.And in the house his disciples asked him again of the same matter. And he saith unto them, Whosoever shall put away his wife, and marry another, committeth adultery against her. And if a woman shall put away her husband, and be married to another, she committeth adultery.
Romans 7:2-3 For the woman which hath an husband is bound by the law to her husband so long as he liveth; but if the husband be dead, she is loosed from the law of her husband. So then if, while herhusband liveth, she be married to another man, she shall be called an adulteress: but if her husband be dead, she is free from that law; so that she is no adulteress, though she be married to another man.
1 Corinthians 7:39The wife is bound by the law as long as her husband liveth; but if her husband be dead, she is at liberty to be married to whom she will; only in the Lord
1 Corinthians 7:10-11 And unto the married I command, yet not I, but the Lord, Let not the wife depart from her husband: But and if she depart, let her remain unmarried, or be reconciled to her husband: and let not the husband put away hiswife.
1 Corinthians 7:13 And the woman which hath an husband that believeth not, and if he be pleased to dwell with her, let her not leave him.
Read the book on HOSEA and ask JESUS to open your eyes to truth in all things.
Another example of HOW GOD RESTORES. This video is about a man who was waiting for his wife to return home while she was in adultery. The beautiful miracle is, SHE RETURNED HOME. Keep in mind, this is a video that includes a worldly song, and although there is no mention of GOD, it’s so obvious HE was the one leading this man to love , forgive and endure the long-suffering for his wife to return. JESUS used this video to show what one is expected to do in the same situation. JESUS uses all things to work for good. GRAB SOME TISSUES.
