Prayer Guide and Devotional – October 9, 2023

Ephesians 5:22

Wives, submit to your own husbands, as to the Lord.

Time for one of the biggest problems I often see is in marriages and with the male and female relationship as a whole. At one point I wondered if the big driving force of these problem relationships was finances. But then I found many low-income families do not have a lot of these problems. And you see many people that have what appears to be very healthy bank accounts that do have relationship problems. So, it is not financing. What it appears to be is the strong will that many females have. Even the Lord knows about this and fired a flare of warning to all of us humans in the Bible. Remember, you are not only being submissive to your husbands but to the Lord at the very same time. The Lord sees this submission and it pleases Him very much. The Lord has created husband and wife as one and He has this wonderful relationship between the two of them in mind. The wives are strongly encouraged to talk to their husbands and share their thoughts and feelings about the various decisions married couples will face but it is the husband that must make that final decision. If we each adhere to how the Lord wants us to behave, that awesome relationship between husband and wife will be established! Just as our awesome relationship with the Lord is established as we submit to Him.

Lord, there are many times when I want to do what I want to do and do not think of any consequences to others or even how You want me to act. Please, give me the Godly wisdom and foresight to act exactly how you want me to act and help me to be a blessing to my spouse and to all people I meet each and every day!!
