Respect your husband challenge Day 17
"The fear of the LORD is the beginning of wisdom, and the knowledge of the Holy One
is understanding." Prov. 9:10
Are you a wise woman? Do you open your mouth with wisdom, as Proverbs 31:26
suggests? As you continue in your 30-day challenge, remember that a wise woman
encourages her husband.
Is your husband a "wise man?" Does he have a godly perspective that comes from
knowing God and walking with Him in obedience? Does he have a sense of purpose for
his life and vision for your home? Tell him how much this means to you.
If you are not sure about your husband's vision for your home, ask him, "Honey, what
do you want to accomplish with our marriage and home in the years to come?" and
"How can I help you accomplish that?" If he does not have a vision, your questions may
inspire him to develop one.
If your husband is not walking with God - or perhaps, does not know the Lord - you have
the opportunity and responsibility to practice your faith and create a thirst for God.
Thank God for giving your husband a place in his heart that only He can fill, and keep
praying that he will turn to the Lord to fill that vacuum!
