Trusting the Father can be hard, but for me trusting another person is even harder. When my husband and I were dating, I didn’t think about all the ways I would have to trust him. We were at the beginning of our journey, but it didn’t take long for me to see how important trust is in a marriage. Trusting our husband and supporting his decisions can grow or hinder the relationship.
Do you trust your husband to make decisions, the right ones? It’s essential that we trust his counsel and judgement when we’re in the decision making process. We shouldn’t nag him about the situation or give him the silent treatment either. If we trusted him enough to marry him, we need to trust him now.
The Father will guide our man by the Holy Spirit, our job is to pray for him.
If you feel the decision he has decided on is wrong, seek the Father and pray about it. Pray that His will be done. Pray that yours eyes and his will be open to truth. It’s not about being right, it’s about the Father’s will. Once he’s made the decision, show your support. He’s your husband and your confidant. He needs you and you need him.
More than anything we have to trust the Father to work through our men. It will strengthen your marriage. Cover that man in prayer, take him by the hand, and stand in support.
Father, thank You for our husband. Help us to trust Him when we’re making decisions. May we pray over him and that He will have clear judgement. Give us patience and strength to trust our man to make the right decision. Even when we don’t agree, help us to surrender our hearts to You. Empower him with Your Spirit so he can make decisions that honors You. In Jesus’ name, Amen.
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.
