Day 7: Responsibilities of Husband and Wife: Pray you and your future husband will walk fully in the purposes and responsibilities God has ordained for each of you in your future covenant.
Scriptures: Proverbs 31, Ephesians 5:22-33, 1 Peter 3:1-7
I don’t know what it is, but I love to read about the roles and responsibilities of a husband and wife. I want to be that woman of God, that Godly wife and that Godly mother. I love the guidance it provides to live a Holy life for God and the blessings that come forth by obedience in Him.
Father God, I thank You for saving me from the life I had before. I thank You for giving us Your One and Only Son so that we can be forgiven of our sins. Thank You for giving us the choice to live our lives in hopes that we choose Your standards. Father God, I pray that my future husband will walk fully in the purposes and responsibilities you have given him. I pray that everything he is doing is all for Your glory and that it is fitting for the Kingdom and our future covenant. I pray that my future husband is seeking You every day and that he is growing with You. I pray that his desire is to become a man of God, Godly husband, and Godly father. Thank you, Father God! I pray for myself and that I just continue to be hungry and thirsty for You so I can live in the house of the Lord forever! In Jesus’ name, I pray. Amen!
Wives, submit to your husbands, as is fitting for those who belong to the Lord. Husbands, love your wives and never treat them harshly. Colossians 3:18-19
Who can find a virtuous and capable wife? She is more precious than rubies. Her husband can trust her, and she will greatly enrich his life. She brings him good, not harm, all the days of her life. Proverbs 31:10-12
For husbands, this means love your wives, just as Christ loved the church. He gave up his life for her to make her holy and clean, washed by the cleansing of God’s word. Ephesians 5:25-26
You should clothe yourselves instead with the beauty that comes from within, the unfading beauty of a gentle and quiet spirit, which is so precious to God. This is how the holy women of old made themselves beautiful. They put their trust in God and accepted the authority of their husbands. 1 Peter 3:4-5
Activation: Ask God what you bring to the table as a future wife. Ask Him what He’s currently working on in you.
God knows I have a lot to offer as a future wife. I have a lot of good traits! I am financially responsible, I can cook and clean, I am smart, hardworking, loving, nurturing, caring, generous, a servant-heart, I love God, family oriented, fun, funny, traveler, and many more too many to list =) But what I do know, He’s currently working on in me is my communication skills. I tend to keep everything inside or hold back and God’s been giving me a voice to speak out my standards and expectations. I no longer want to compromise my standards when it comes to a potential partner. God is giving me the values, and vision of what I expect from my future husband and whom I have to become as a woman. I will not be settling for anything anymore, so I am communicating things right away and just becoming a better communicator in all areas of my life. Thank you, Jesus!
