Looking at the story of Naomi, her husband made a decision that cost her everything. She lost everything. Wrong decisions made by our husbands can cost us in ways we can’t imagine. The funny part is that sometimes you may have a decision but may not be able to share with hubby because he would not respect it. Other cases, some can’t even dare air their opinions.
Let me share a quick story with you. While I was preparing to begin the journey of marriage, my dad gave me a very special gift which were lessons and clear scriptural advices for a Christian wife. A paragraph concerned on this particular topic. It reads: “Even when the wife’s opinion is better when taking a decision, there must be wisdom and humility to pass that across to the husband for collective agreement and generally no husband will ever appreciate a situation where the wife’s opinion ALWAYS overrules in any decision making and God who makes the husband the head of the home always in a true Christian will help him to still guide in many critical issues and the wife must be ready to LEARN in most situations.” ~ S.A. Reju
So today we will be raising this area of our husband’s life to God. For those of us who our opinions matter a lot in the decision makings in our homes, don’t relax. Pray too because there are time when hubby has to make an “on-the-spot” kind of decision. Your opinion then won’t count. So you see the need to pray?
- Father, I bless you for your mercy that has caused us not to be consumed by the consequences of our decisions. Thank you for being God and for proving that over and over again.
- Father I bring (husband’s name) before you today. I receive for him grace to ask your help in making decisions regarding our family in Jesus name.
