5. Watch and See What God Can Do
Slide 5 of 5
I know it’s not easy being married to an unbeliever.
Whether it’s been a short time, or a long journey, seeing someone you love either making decisions that don’t align with the truth written in God’s Word, or perhaps seeing someone living a life with little to no peace since they haven’t experienced God’s indescribable love yet--it’s hard.
But we have a God who sees our heart, and we are called to trust in Him just as Sarah did, obeying Him despite what our husbands choose to do. Remember, God is the God who “hears us” (John 9:31).
Not one prayer goes unheard.
Let’s turn that longing for our husband’s faith into a longing after God. Let’s be that prayer warrior who grows closer to the Lord allowing Him to mend our hearts cultivating a peaceful home, with a gentle and quiet spirit to our unbelieving husbands.
As we do this, let’s then watch and see what God can do. 1 Samuel 12:16 says, “Now, therefore, stand and see this great thing which the Lord will do before your eyes.”
We can stand confident in our positions as wives as we watch God work on our behalf. He is forever faithful, and remember He loves your husband, as you do. So, let’s move out of His way allowing Him room to work as Sarah exemplified.
It could be tomorrow, next year, or after our lifetime before our unbelieving spouses come to know the Lord, but God is without a doubt working. You have the greatest role of planting eternal seeds every time you have a gentle and quiet spirit towards your unbelieving husband. God sees you and He finds you precious in His sight.
