However, each one of you also must love his wife as he loves himself, and the wife must respect her husband. Ephesian 5:33

Giving up complete surrender to God is one of the hardest things I believe that God has asked us to do however when we do He does amazing things.

How many times have we been to a bible study and they talk about the role of the husband or your preachers toughed on marriage in his sermon? The first thing we do is run back and start telling our husband’s all the “Should be’s” he should be doing?

I was guilty of that for a long time. I was always getting into God’s way. I felt like I could do it better however it never got better, it got worse.

You know his role so well that you start reminding him when he is not doing something he should be doing, you even go as far as to pull out scripture and tell him this is what God says about it and you should be doing that.

We are always trying to FIX him OUR WAY!

This whole time God is sitting and waiting for US to get out of His way so that He can work in our husbands lives.

He gives you all the clues that you cant fix it, that you need Him but you just dont listen to reasoning at all. You know his role and you will fix him.

Then it hits you like a tons of bricks………………..

Go to the cross and ask God to forgive you for being in His way, to give you strength to love your husband right where he is, to help you surrender your whole marriage to Him.

It is then and only then can God truly work in our husbands lives. We must get out of God’s way, pray to Him always and work on our own walk so that He can always be working in both of our lives.

Here are some tips that I have learned to insure that God is in control and that I am entrusting my husband to God and not trying to fix him myself:

  1. I pray for my husband every single day
  2. When I feel an urge to open my mouth to my husband when he is doing something that I know is not pleasing to God, I remove myself from the situation, before opening my mouth, and go pray about it.
  3. I dont talk to my husband when I am feeling upset, I cool off and talk to him later on
  4. I dont blame him for my feelings
  5. I always remember that my husband is not in the same place spiritually as I am
  6. To always love my husband right where he is with God

When removing ourselves from the situation, pray and take our concerns to the cross instead of speaking our minds, we are trusting God to take care of husbands. Learning to step out of His way, is the best thing we can do for our marriage.

God does NOT need our help, even though we always feel like we need to fix things. He want us to learn to TRUST in Him for everything, not ourselves.

How do you get in God’s way when it comes to your Husband? I would love to your thoughts and struggles with this?
