"Seek peace, and persue it." Psalms 34:14b
"You will keep him in perfect peace, whose mind is stayed on You, because he trusts in You." Is 26:3
Before you consider wether these verses describe your husband, consider your own presence in the home. Do you promote an atmosphere of peace or do critical words often flow from your mouth? Do you struggle with anger/ If so, before you continue with your Encouragement Challenge, confess these sinful habits to the Lord and dewtermine to speak words of peace to your family today.
Does your husband bring an atmoshpere of peace into your home? Is his presence a calming influence? Does he bring music, entertainment, books or people into your home that build sense of serenity? Let him know how much you appreciate his wonderful quality and support his choices.
If, on the other hand, he is quickly angered or he creates chaos rather than calm, ask God to give you an abundance of the kind of peace that will speak his heart. Be patient and loving. Create an inviting atmosphere of peace, as much as possible.
Prayer of the Day:
Pray that your husband will be courageous in his stand against evil and injustice, and that he will stand for the truth. Pray that he willprotect you and your family from Satan's attack's. (Ps. 31:24; Eph. 6:13; Ps 27:14)
