"Blessed is the man who trusts in the Lord,
whose confidence is in him."
The Bible never tells us to "figure it out". It simply tells us over and over and over to "trust God." He is bigger than any problem we face. He made us and put us here for such a time as this. He won't desert us.
Are we willing to trust him with our lives, our plans, our here and now and our future?
Today we pray for and extra measure of trust to be given to our husbands.
Prayer #29. His Trust
Father, we know Your ways are only good. Your ways are perfect, Your word is flawless and You promise to be a shield to those who trust in You. (2Sam.22:31)
Father, I pray my husband would be dealt an extra measure of trust. Show him throughout the day that he can trust You with whatever comes. Give him a peace beyond understanding so he can rest in knowing all will be as it should be in Your eyes. Where there is even a small measure of distrust, doubt or trepidation, remind him that You have proven Yourself faithful since the beginning of time and promise to be faithful and trustworthy to all eternity.
Father, when my husband makes plans that go wrong or don't hold out, do not let him become discouraged. Remind him that this is only for a season, and that when he stands firmly on Your solid foundation and does good, You will greatly reward him. Many are the woes of the wicked, but Your unfailing love surrounds those who trust in You. (Ps.32:10) Many can be the plans of a mans heart but Your will, oh Lord, that will prevail. (Pr.19:21) Let my husband rest securely in those great promises. Let him rest securely knowing that Your thoughts and Your ways are above all others and You can not allow what is not fitting in Your great plan. (Is.55:8-9)
Father, I praise You that You have given my husband a sound mind and teachable spirit. Now and often, teach and speak to my husband through Your word and Spirit. Do not snatch the word of truth from him so he can put his trust in You. (Ps.119:43) May he not be a fool who trusts in himself, but a man who walks in wisdom, his confidence secured in You (Pr.28:26, Jer.17:7) In Jesus' name. Amen.
"Righteous are You, O Lord,
and Your laws are right.
The statutes You have laid down are righteous;
they are fully trustworthy."
