words that encourage
This marriage minute is targeted to wives! Do we really understand the power of our influence? Can we believe that God has especially equipped us with influence for His purpose of promoting good in our husbands?
Our words have power. In fact, according to Proverbs 18:21, our words can promote life or death! I wonder which of the two we would consider the dominate theme of all of the words we have spoken concerning our husbands if we had a recording from every day of our marriages?
Here is a suggestion: let’s make a commitment to pray daily for our husbands. I find that as a result of that time in prayer for him, the Lord often gives me an encouraging word to share. When I call my husband to speak the life-giving message from the Father, he is always so encouraged and thankful.
The Spirit of God will always lead us in the holiness of God. As we stay in step with Him, we will overflow with the influence that our husbands need.
