YOU FEEL LIKE GIVING UP?
By Kristie, CPR Minister
What is happening to you? Do you feel like just when
you thought you were being blessed with breakthrough,
you were cursed instead? Has an adulteress or adulterer
risen their ugly head out of the blue in your situation
the past couple of weeks, just when you thought things
were looking up in your marriage? Did you get a bit
of bad news, a paper served, a rejection letter from
your spouse, or maybe just a long time of nothing
at all. Do you feel like it is over, you are done,
that you cannot go on like this anymore? Do you feel
like something is very wrong, that you have been faithful
to God, you have done it all, the fasting, the speaking
Gods word, the praying, but despite all that your
spouse seems to go on with their wickedness unhindered
by God, maybe even prospering, meanwhile your life
is falling apart in every area? Do you find yourself
very confused by this, to the point that you wonder
if you are just messed up? Maybe you are not a child
of God afterall, maybe for some unknown reason to
you, you are shut off from God, maybe you are not
even saved, maybe you are just some crazy person?
Have you even had thoughts of suicide, just wanting
to die and not spend another day in this hell? Have
you finally reached a true understanding of Job like
you have never had before, where at one time no'matter
what was going on, you still felt blessed in that
your trial of suffering has brought you into a deeper
relationship with God, but now even that is not blessing
you, like Job you just want to hide, want God to remove
His hand from you, take His eyes off you, you just
want to be nothing and un-noticed by either party
in the spiritual. Do you feel like you are on the
verge of failing in your spirit and soul? Have you
pondered that it all seems impossible, not only your
spouse and marriage, but even emotional healing of
all the damage that you have suffered in this battle?
There is no understanding, no reality, no answers,
no direction? Do you feel that maybe you are just
wrong, that this is not Gods will for you afterall,
you made a mistake, and He does not want to bring
your spouse back? Maybe some of you are even feeling
better then you ever have because you have just shut
down completely, you do not even care anymore. Maybe
some of you have a outside person pursuing you which
is helping the pain, and this person looks like everything
you have ever wanted, and you are thinking that maybe
this is where your blessing is instead of your spouse?
Are you beginning to convince yourself that maybe
your blessing does not have to come in the form of
your spouse coming home, and you are alright with
that, just as long as you are blessed in some way,
another person maybe. Is the silence of God unbearable
and it feels like the dark night of your soul? Are
you finding that about all you can utter in prayer
is Gods will be done and begging for deliverance from
this nightmare, one way or the other, you will take
anything at this point just to be delivered from this
Does any of this describe you? Then I have a word
for you. I know exactly how you feel, and many of
you are feeling it. Many of you have even spoken out
from your mouths in the past couple of weeks, some
of the things I have stated above. I have not personally
heard you do so, but I know. The silence of God, so
agonizing, so unsure, even frightening because you
have no idea anymore what to believe.
I sat quietly and pondered the silence of God a couple
of days ago, and in that quiet God spoke to me clearly
and He said, "Yes, I am silent, I do not have
to say anything, I have already said it and now you
just have to believe it".
You have been begging for a neon sign from God, scripture
is not feeding your faith anymore because it seems
to be falling to the ground when you speak it. You
want a burning bush, you are begging God for a burning
bush. I know....I know exactly where you are.
Well, I am not bringing you a burning bush, or maybe
I am, only your spirit will know. I am bringing you
the facts though. God has spoken out of the silence,
and He has said all He is going to say because He
has already said it all, and now it is up to you to
believe it or not. You know the scripture about when
satan tempted Jesus up on the mountain when He went
to fast and pray for 40 days. Everytime satan spoke
to Jesus, Jesus said...."It is written....".
Jesus did this because everything that satan came
at Him with, it was already covered by God, a response
already stated by God, and that was just that, end
of story. Satan went away defeated because nothing
he does or says can overcome the word of God, nothing.
Here is a word from God for you....
It is written, Mar 10:9 What therefore God hath joined
together, let not man put asunder.
It is written, Mat 19:5 And said, For this cause
shall a man leave father and mother, and shall cleave
to his wife: and they twain shall be one flesh? Mat
19:6 Wherefore they are no more twain, but one flesh.
What therefore God hath joined together, let not man
It is written, Mar 10:7 'And for this reason a man
will leave his father and mother and unite with his
wife, Mar 10:8 and the two will become one.' So they
are no longer two, but one. Mar 10:9 No human being
must separate, then, what God has joined together."
It is written, Mal 2:14 You ask why he no longer
accepts them. It is because he knows you have broken
your promise to the wife you married when you were
young. She was your partner, and you have broken your
promise to her, although you promised before God that
you would be faithful to her. Mal 2:16 "I hate
divorce," says the LORD God of Israel. "I
hate it when one of you does such a cruel thing to
his wife. Make sure that you do not break your promise
to be faithful to your wife."
It is written, Ecc 9:9 Live joyfully with the wife
whom thou lovest all the days of the life of thy vanity,
which he hath given thee under the sun, all the days
of thy vanity: for that is thy portion in this life,
and in thy labour which thou takest under the sun.
It is written, Eph 5:21 Submitting yourselves one
to another in the fear of God. Eph 5:22 Wives, submit
yourselves unto your own husbands, as unto the Lord.
Eph 5:23 For the husband is the head of the wife,
even as Christ is the head of the church: and he is
the saviour of the body.
Eph 5:24 Therefore as the church is subject unto Christ,
so let the wives be to their own husbands in every
thing. Eph 5:25 Husbands, love your wives, even as
Christ also loved the church, and gave himself for
it; Eph 5:28 So ought men to love their wives as their
own bodies. He that loveth his wife loveth himself.
Eph 5:29 For no man ever yet hated his own flesh;
but nourisheth and cherisheth it, even as the Lord
Eph 5:30 For we are members of his body, of his flesh,
and of his bones.
Eph 5:31 For this cause shall a man leave his father
and mother, and shall be joined unto his wife, and
they two shall be one flesh. Eph 5:33 Nevertheless
let every one of you in particular so love his wife
even as himself; and the wife see that she reverence

paths unto the dead. Pro 2:19 None that go unto her

woman drop honey, And her mouth is smoother than oil:

to death; Her steps take hold on Sheol; Pro 5:6 So
that she findeth not the level path of life: Her ways
are unstable, and she knoweth it not.
Pro 5:7 Now therefore, my sons, hearken unto me, And
depart not from the words of my mouth. Pro 5:8 Remove

others, And thy years unto the cruel; Pro 5:10 Lest
strangers be filled with thy strength, And thy labors

As an ox goeth to the slaughter, Or as one in fetters
to the correction of the fool; Pro 7:23 Till an arrow
strike through his liver; As a bird hasteth to the
snare, And knoweth not that it is for his life. Pro

Pro 7:27 Her house is the way to Sheol (Hell), Going

town, Pro 9:15 Crying out to those who go by, going
straight on their way, she says: Pro 9:16 Whoever
is simple, let him come in here: and to him who is
without sense, she says: Pro 9:17 Drink taken without
right is sweet, and food in secret is pleasing. Pro
9:18 But he does not see that the dead are there,
that her guests are in the deep places of the underworld.

adultery with another man's wife, even he that committeth
adultery with his neighbour's wife, the adulterer

of which she has said, These are the payments which
my lovers have made to me; and I will make them a
waste of trees, and the beasts of the field will take
them for food. Hos 2:13 And I will give her punishment
for the days of the Baals, to whom she has been burning
perfumes, when she made herself fair with her nose-rings
and her jewels, and went after her lovers, giving
no thought to me, says the Lord.

the Holy Spirit, by our true love, 2Co 6:7 by our
message of truth, and by the power of God. We have
righteousness as our weapon, both to attack and to
defend ourselves. 2Co 6:8 We are honored and disgraced;
we are insulted and praised. We are treated as liars,
yet we speak the truth; 2Co 6:9 as unknown, yet we
are known by all; as though we were dead, but, as
you see, we live on. Although punished, we are not
killed; 2Co 6:10 although saddened, we are always
glad; we seem poor, but we make many people rich;
we seem to have nothing, yet we really possess everything.
AND KNOW THAT GOD WILL TURN YOUR SPOUSE AROUND.....
It is written, Pro 21:1 The king's heart is in the
hand of the LORD, as the rivers of water: he turneth
it whithersoever he will.
It is written, Pro 16:9 A man's heart deviseth his
way: but the LORD directeth his steps.
It is written, Pro 19:21 There are many devices in
a man's heart; nevertheless the counsel of the LORD,
that shall stand.
AND MOST IMPORTANTLY, REMEMBER...It is written, Isa
55:11 So shall my word be that goeth forth out of
my mouth: it shall not return unto me void, but it
shall accomplish that which I please, and it shall
prosper in the thing whereto I sent it.
SO EVERYTHING SPOKEN (IT IS WRITTEN) ABOVE WILL COME
AND NOW AS FOR US, TAKE HEED WHEN IT DOES COME, AND
IT IS COMING.....
It is written, Isa 66:14 When you see this happen,
you will be glad; it will make you strong and healthy.
Then you will know that I, the LORD, help those who
obey me, and I show my anger against my enemies."
It is written, Pro 24:17 Do not be glad at the fall
of your hater, and let not your heart have joy at
his downfall: Pro 24:18 For fear that the Lord may
see it, and it may be evil in his eyes, and his wrath
may be turned away from him.
Brothers and Sisters, I could go on and on with Gods
word, there is so much more that He has spoken to
us to give us His promise of all these things. Jesus
talked back to satan that day with the word of God.
When satan is talking to you, when you find yourself
believing what satan is showing you, it is time to
talk back to him and tell him THAT IT IS WRITTEN.....
I want to talk to you about faith for a moment as
well. Just something that came to me today while driving
to work. I heard Rod Parsley this morning speaking
about as a young pastor he had stated to a visiting
elder pastor that he guess he needed more faith, and
the elder pastor told him that he did not need more
faith, he had enough faith because just believing
in God was faith enough. I pondered this, and found
myself thinking about Mary and Martha on the day Jesus
finally showed up three days late when Lazarus died
and was buried. They were right there in the presence
of Jesus, touching him, speaking directly to him in
person and he speaking back to them. They had witnessed
the miraculous by His hand over and over again, including
the raising of the dead already, and still they could
not even imagine that He would raise Lazarus from
the dead, did not even think to ask it of Him...all
they felt was that it was too late. The scripture
came to me, Eph 3:20 Now unto him that is able to
do exceeding abundantly above all that we ask or think,
according to the power that worketh in us...
Here is the thing, sometimes there are just things
that we have a hard time feeling or visualizing the
ability to happen, it seems impossible to us, just
like Lazarus walking out of that tomb was not even
imaginable to Mary and Martha, despite how close they
were to Jesus and witnessed with their own eyes the
miraculous things He did. Satan tends to make sure
it looks impossible, as he is a master of deceit,
nothing but a liar. Sometimes we are not capable as
humans to feel the possibility in the heat of the
trial of suffering, and this is why He said what He
did in Ephesians, because He knows our vunerbilites,
He created us. But if we believe in Him, in His word,
and that is the easy part because we all do by blind
faith, then we can rest assured that even in our incapabilities,
He is very capable of anything and everything.
One last thing God imparted to me this week, that
my happiness is not contingent on my husband, it is
contingent on God Himself. Get it into your spirit,
that you are blessed. No matter what happens, you
are blessed, because you are a child of God. It is
written, Eph 1:3 Blessed be the God and Father of
our Lord Jesus Christ, who hath blessed us with all
spiritual blessings in heavenly places in Christ:
Eph 1:4 According as he hath chosen us in him before
the foundation of the world, that we should be holy
and without blame before him in love: Eph 1:5 Having
predestinated us unto the adoption of children by
Jesus Christ to himself, according to the good pleasure
of his will, Eph 1:6 To the praise of the glory of
his grace, wherein he hath made us accepted in the
Eph 1:7 In whom we have redemption through his blood,
the forgiveness of sins, according to the riches of
his grace; Eph 1:8 Wherein he hath abounded toward
us in all wisdom and prudence; Eph 1:9 Having made
known unto us the mystery of his will, according to
his good pleasure which he hath purposed in himself:
Eph 1:10 That in the dispensation of the fulness of
times he might gather together in one all things in
Christ, both which are in heaven, and which are on
earth; even in him:
Eph 1:11 In whom also we have obtained an inheritance,
being predestinated according to the purpose of him
who worketh all things after the counsel of his own
will: Eph 1:12 That we should be to the praise of
his glory, who first trusted in Christ. Eph 1:13 In
whom ye also trusted, after that ye heard the word
of truth, the gospel of your salvation: in whom also
after that ye believed, ye were sealed with that holy
Spirit of promise, Eph 1:14 Which is the earnest of
our inheritance until the redemption of the purchased
possession, unto the praise of his glory. Eph 1:15
Wherefore I also, after I heard of your faith in the
Lord Jesus, and love unto all the saints, Eph 1:16
Cease not to give thanks for you, making mention of
you in my prayers; Eph 1:17 That the God of our Lord
Jesus Christ, the Father of glory, may give unto you
the spirit of wisdom and revelation in the knowledge
of him: Eph 1:18 The eyes of your understanding being
enlightened; that ye may know what is the hope of
his calling, and what the riches of the glory of his
inheritance in the saints, Eph 1:19 And what is the
exceeding greatness of his power to us-ward who believe,
according to the working of his mighty power,
Eph 1:20 Which he wrought in Christ, when he raised
him from the dead, and set him at his own right hand
in the heavenly places, Eph 1:21 Far above all principality,
and power, and might, and dominion, and every name
that is named, not only in this world, but also in
that which is to come: Eph 1:22 And hath put all things
under his feet, and gave him to be the head over all
things to the church, Eph 1:23 Which is his body,
the fulness of him that filleth all in all.
Our spouses are not our happiness in themselves,
but only vessels that God can work in and through
to bring us happiness in the area of our marriage.
Happiness with our spouses is not contingent on them,
but contingent on God who will create in them a person
whom we can be happy with. We hear all the time that
our spouses are not the enemy, satan is, and that
is true. But lets stop even focusing on who the enemy
is. Lets take our eyes off him and put them on God,
because He is our defender and protector, and this
is His battle. The only reason satan even comes at
us is because he hates God. We belong to God, whom
he cannot touch, so he goes at us instead hoping to
make us angry at God, hoping to make us believe that
God does not care about us, hoping that we will walk
away from God. Just as he has been making so many
of you feel the past couple of weeks. He is trying
to rob God of you...that is his main objective. He
is Gods advesary. But, God dealt with him long ago.
When Jesus uttered "It is finished" and
took His last breath, it was finished, a done deal,
over with, signed..sealed...delivered". We are
Gods, just as Jesus is Gods. We are sons and daughters
of the living God, just as Jesus is. We are blessed,
just as Jesus is. We are what God says we are, we
have what God says we have, and thats just the end
of the story. God says we are one flesh with our spouses,
and no man can separate us because He joined us together
as that one flesh. Say Amen...which amen means "so
be it". God said it, so be it, it's done, and
no one can change that. As long as you believe in
God, stay in His righteousness and stand with God
sheltered under His wing, believing what He says is
truth and nothing short of, so it has to come to pass
as He promises it will, then you have nothing to fear,
nothing to worry about. On the contrary, you have
something to smile and laugh about, something to sing
praises to Him about. This is why praise and worship
is one of your greatest weapons against satan, it
lets satan know...that you know...that he is defeated
and you are victorious in God. In the bible, God sent
armies out to battle with nothing but musical instruments,
right to the enemy front lines, and told them to make
music and song, praises to the Lord; and when they
did, their enemies were instantly defeated. These
were enemies with real weapons and they were defeated
and fell just at the sound of praise and worship to
God. How do you think those soldiers of God felt...knowing
that they were going to be face to face with a man
bearing a dangerous weapon of war and themselves would
only be holding a musical instrument? That as their
advesary would be raising up an ax to lop off their
head, they would be strumming a harp as a defense.
They were human just as we are, and they had fears,
doubts, faith failure. But, the key is that they also
had belief in what God told them to do and the victory
is told them would be theirs. They trusted Him even
when it definitely looked utterly impossible to defeat
a much larger army bearing serious weapons with them
only having instruments to play music on. The weapon
that won those impossible battles was their trust
in God and what He told them. So rise up child of
God, talk back to satan with the word of God that
He has spoke to you, rise up and trust the Lord your
God and be joyous in your heart because God has you
covered and you cannot be defeated. As you stand on
the front line facing the enemy, make music and song
to God, praising Him, and wait patiently in peace
and joy for your enemy to fall, as he is going fall
and be defeated.
I love all of you, God bless you and keep you. Victory
is yours, has been, and the celebration of your victory
is just around the corner. Praise the Lord your God
for it with all your heart, in peace and joy. Laugh
in the Holy Spirit as all is well with your soul,
your life, your marriage. Everything is blessed, God
