DAY 9: PRAISE HIM
When was the last time you praised your husband for being so hardworking? When was the last time you praised him for being a great husband? When was the last time you praised him for being a active lover, or how he makes love to you? When was the last time you praised him for being an active father to your children? When did you last praise his leadership both at home, work or in ministry? When did you last praise his listening skills or his patience?
We do take this thing for granted you know. Probably he’s not as active as you would expect him to be, but praise him into being active. Praise him for his intentional acts of pursuing you- even if not your way. Praise him for being so hardworking and sweating off to provide for you. Praise him!
You better buy a tutu skirt and shake it all for him!
Psalm 22:3 says, God Inhabits the Praises of His People” We feel God’s love most keenly when we are focused on His will and have devoted ourselves fully to His praise and purpose for our lives. God loves praise. Praise then translates to an active verb which is means literally means to abide. So, God does stay where there is praise.
Praise draws people in and praise will draw your husband to you. He might not be all that, but praise him into greatness – you will see the change!
DIY: Write a text, praising his every doing – work, family, your love life, his physique.
Go point: Be vocal, either in texting, calling, or the social media!
VERSE OF THE DAY: Acts 20:35, In everything I did, I showed you that by this kind of hard work we must help the weak, remembering the words the Lord Jesus himself said: ‘It is more blessed to give than to receive.’
Many time I expect my husband to praise me and see the good in what I do for him, yet I rarely remember that he too deserves it too. Teach me to praise my husband in everything that he does no matter how trivial it seems to me. Teach to be his greatest fan and supporter.
Teach me to be a wife who sees the greatness in him. Teach me to number my days in wisdom, that I will spend little or no time in being a prosecutor, but a great cheerleader in all he does. Lord tech my heart your ways, for you are full of wisdom. I need more wisdom Lord in my marriage.
In Jesus name I pray.
