Pray her marriage will be restored, but pray also that even if it isn’t, God will encourage her and keep her from despair or bitterness. Even when hard times come and the future is uncertain, God still loves us and has not abandoned us.
God isn’t hiding off in some distant corner of the universe, hoping we’ll never discover him or bother him. Instead, God did something that was totally unexpected: he came down from heaven and became a man!
God alone knows the future; we can only make guesses about it, and they’ll probably turn out to be wrong! The writer of Ecclesiastes in the Old Testament declared, “Since no one knows the future, who can tell someone else what is to come?” (Ecclesiastes 8:7).
God has promised that someday we too will have new bodies, bodies that will be like Christ’s body after his resurrection. As the Bible says, “The body that is sown (in the grave) is perishable; it is raised imperishable” (1 Corinthians 15:42).
DEAR BILLY GRAHAM: I’ve always been faithful to my wife, but I’m thinking about taking a job that will involve lots of travel, and I’m not sure I’m going to be able to resist the temptation to cheat on her. Please pray for me, because I know how weak I am.
