Truth demands a response: praying for your husband {Day 3}

Isn't it horrible that we are on day 22 of this month, and I am only on day 3 of our prayers.  Yikes!

I almost gave up, but I'm not going to.  This is important to me and it is important for me to do for my husband.

I want to share something that I read this morning with you.

Truth Demands A Response:

"One foggy night, the captain of a large ship saw what appeared to be another ship's lights approaching in the distance.  This other ship was on a course that would mean a head-on collision.

Quickly, the captain signaled to the approaching ship: 'Please change you course 10 degrees west.'

The reply came blinking back through the thick fog: 'You change your course 10 degrees east.'

Indignantly, the captain pulled rank and shot a message back to the other ship: 'I am a sea captain with 35 years of experience.  Change your course 10 degrees west!'

Without hesitation, the signal flashed back: 'I am a seaman, fourth class.  You change your course 10 degrees east!'

Engraged, the captain realied they were approaching each other quickly and would crash within minutes.  So he blazed his final warning: 'I am a 50,000-ton freighter.  Change your course 10 degrees west!'

A simple message winked back: 'I am a lighthouse.  You change your course!'

Just like this capatian ladies, when we are confronted with truth we have to change our course.   When we spend time with God reading and applying His Word we are spending time with the eternal truth. 

God's Word isn't going to change; therefore, we have to change.  We are the ones who must adjust our lives to walk in His truth.

So many of us spend our lives avoiding the turth of God's Word because we don't want to walk in it.  I have just come to find out that in times in my life this is very true of me!

Christ said in John 8:31, "the truth shall make you free."

Herbert Agar who wrote in, 'A Time for Greatness,' "The truth that makes men free is for the most part the truth which men prefer not to hear."  Could this be true of you?

Ladies, what is the Bible to you? 

A collection of nice stories?  The foundation of a conservative worldview? Or is it God's Word, "living and active and sharper than any two-edge sword?"

Is there anything keeping you from obeying God's Word in every area of your life—your business, your marriage, your family?  Do you need to adjust the course on which you are heading today?

Day 3, prayers for your husband:

"Pray that your husband will be humble and quick to agree with God about his sin.  Pray that his heart will be tender toward the voice of the Lord." ~ Ps. 51:2-4; Michah 6:8

Think about:

Is there a truth you have been avoiding in your life—an area of your relationship you have been unwilling to confront?

Pray that:

God's Word will be your guide in decision making and your rock in establishing family values and priorities.

The story that was told, came from the book,'Moments Together For Couples.'
