“And I tell you, ask, and it will be given to you; seek, and you will find; knock, and it will be opened to you. For everyone who asks receives, and the one who seeks finds, and to the one who knocks it will be opened.”
Father God, this world beats us down. It makes us feel that there is no room for error in the way our children, marriages and jobs turn out and that same condemnation tries to make us responsible for all of the above. I lift my husband up to You as the head of our home and family. I have seen times when he was struggling with his job where he didn’t feel that he was doing a good enough job. I have watched him question himself when one of our children made a wrong choice. And I have heard him ask how he can know that he is a Christian when he fails You on a daily basis.
Lord, first of all, help my hubby to know that nothing on earth can take his salvation away from him; that is a free gift from Your Son, Jesus. And let your Holy Spirit remind him that he is a child of the King and that nothing he does on earth can take that prestige away from him. Teach him, Lord, that the world will always try to judge him and take away his manhood, but You do not look on what my husband does on the outside, You look on the inside. And I pray, Lord, that when I see him bow his head, it is not in shame from failure in the world’s eyes, but in prayer of thanksgiving for who he is in Your eyes.
In Jesus’ Name,
