Day Three: That Her Identity Would Be Found in Christ
"For you have died, and your life is hidden with Christ in God." -Colossians 3:3
Our wives have many things in their life that vie to shape their identities. Some will seek identity in physical appearance. Some will seek it in mothering or being a great wife. Others will seek it in Christian activity. Others will seek to find their identity in stuff. These are faulty foundations. Pray that our wives might find their identity solely in Christ. And that their identity in Christ would be the foundation for all of their other roles and passions.
Father, you are everything that we desire. You are perfect in all of your ways. I am amazed that you would so graciously hide us in Christ. Lord I pray that my wife's identity would be shaped by all that Jesus is. May her life be hidden in You. May she believe that she is who You say that she is and not what the world, the flesh, or the devil says she is. Thank you that you have purchased our identity.
