Daily Devotionals by Ardith Keef

       I can't tell you how many times I have had women say to me " I just don't know what to do. I don't feel anything for him any more. I guess our marriage is over."
     These are Christian women making this amazingly anti-scriptural statement.
     How we feel about our mates has nothing to do with anything, and as believers, the Bible says our position is to be that of people whose marriages are arranged by God. The way I am treated, my mate's inability to relate to me, the lack of physical fulfillment - all these are the Lord's business. 
     My responsibility is to live each day dependent upon the Lord, determined that He would have room in my heart to teach me to be a living sacrifice.
     He is not deaf, nor is He uncaring. He is devoted to my good and my preparation for heaven. I need to let Him have this life of mine, and use me to minister, not try to gain a personal situation that will hold temporal comfort.
     There are the same riches in every situation - the possibility of the unlocking of the "treasures hidden up in Christ Jesus".
      May we learn to seek first the Kingdom of God and His righteousness.
