I know you worry a lot about your husband. I do, too. Sometimes.
But I’m not in control.
Nor do I want to be.
Because when I try to take control, I automatically limit my life to only what I know. The Lord wants more than that for us both!
I’ve never met a confident woman who wants to be in control of her man. She knows that whatever is attained through self-effort will have to be maintained through self-effort. And she has more enough on her plate already. Her own spiritual life. Her children. Her work.
She needs a partner. Not another project.
A wise woman knows she cannot control her man.
He will resist her. Every time.
He might go along with her in the beginning. Mostly because it just seems easier to go along than to assert himself. At the moment. But there will always come a time – it happens in every marriage – when he no longer follows her lead. Something inside him knows that’s just plain wrong.
That’s why a wise woman knows where to place her confidence.
Trust in The Lord with all your heart & soul.
If you’re trying to control, you’re not trusting.
How can you learn to trust The Lord?
- First, you must realize how much He loves you. He loved you first.
- You can’t trust love someone you don’t know. So spend time with Him.
- He loves you way more than you love yourself. And way, way, way more than you love your man!
So hang on to your hat, wise woman.
And get ready for Something Bigger instead!
Never doubt God’s mighty power to accomplish Something Bigger. He will achieve infinitely more than your greatest request, your most unbelievable dream, & exceed your wildest imagination! He will outdo them all through His miraculous power. EPHESIANS 3:20
