I hope that you are having a blessed Lord’s day. I pray that God’s Word was faithfully preached in your church this morning, and that God’s Word is doing it’s work in your soul. Day four begins now. As always, remember to comment as a means of accountability.
Day Four: That She Would Have a Passion for God’s Word
Blessed is the man who walks not in the counsel of the wicked, nor stands in the way of sinners, nor sits in the seat of scoffers; 2 but his delight is in the law of the Lord, and on his law he meditates day and night. –Psalm 1:1-2
If we want our wives to be blessed we should also want them to delight in God’s Word. It is not a coincidence that we are to wash our wives in the water of the Word. When all else fails—including us as husbands—the Word of God is the one thing that remains. One of the greatest things that can come from our prayer for our wives is that they would strengthen and develop an abiding love for God’s Word. Our passion is not merely that our wives would master the Word but that they would be mastered by the Word. Therefore, let us pray that God would give them a delight in His Word.
Lord, we thank you for your Word. I know that what will cause my wife to be blessed will be that she delights in your Word. Lord, I know that this is not something that comes from her—but this delight ultimately comes from you. So, God I pray that you would incline her heart to you. Help her to have a deep and abiding passion for your Word. I pray that you help her rejoice as she meditates on You as you reveal yourself in your Word. Give her a passion for your Word like she has never known before. I pray this that Christ may glorified, Amen.
