Isa 54:1 (KJV) Sing, O barren, thou that didst not bear; break forth into singing, and cry aloud, thou that didst not travail with child. for more are the children of the desolate than the children of the married wife, saith the LORD.
Logically speaking, the above scripture should read, ‘Sing O mothers…” but it says “Sing, O barren…” this means that even when you are experiencing dryness in your marriage or going through the wilderness experience, the one thing to do is not to get depressed, resign to fate, have a pity-party or start complaining, but to start praising God! You’ve got to sing even when there is nothing to sing about.
To keep your marriage going, you need a great attitude because marriage comes with responsibilities and those responsibilities comes with pressures that you must go through. So one of the ways you can stay on top is to have a great attitude, an attitude of Praise! Praise will always raise you up!
Scripture tells us the joy of the Lord gives strength, so when there are financial pressures, or prayers seems unanswered, when you are feeling depressed, when you are experiencing some sort of delay, when you have an uncooperative spouse, when things are not going the way you expect them to, when it seems you are lost and abandoned by God and shame is in the offing, when frustration hits you like a tsunami, the way out is not to give up and resign to fate, but to switch into praise. Yes, start praising God because, you need that strength to get out of that situation. Do all you can not to lose your joy.
The Message translation of above verse says
Isa 54:1 “Sing, barren woman, who has never had a baby. Fill the air with song…
Fill the air with song! Not with complaints and bitterness. Don’t let the devil have the last say in your marriage! Don’t keep quiet on God.
Praise Him and see His wonders. You don’t have to be in the choir to do this. In fact, you, your spouse and the angels are all you need. He said open your mouth and I will fill it!
I pray for you this morning, your marriage will be revived. Your broken heart will be mended. Your baby will come. That health challenge will be soon gone! God will make a way for you. As you start praising him, Help will arise for you! This day, this week, even as we round off this month, God will visit you in Jesus name!
