Let us give thanks. It is Thankful Thursday.
This month, September, we will share our thanks with Iris of Grace Alone. Next month, October, we will be back here at Spiritually Unequal Marriage and then in November we will all meet up with Laurie of Women Taking A Stand.
Proverbs 3:5-8 (Amplified Bible)
Lean on, trust in, and be confident in the Lord with all your heart and mind and do not rely on your own insight or understanding.
In all your ways know, recognize, and acknowledge Him, and He will direct and make straight and plain your paths.
Be not wise in your own eyes; reverently fear and worship the Lord and turn [entirely] away from evil.
It shall be health to your nerves and sinews, and marrow and moistening to your bones.
It's been 18 years. Eighteen long years that I have faithfully prayed for my husband's salvation and today he remains an unbeliever.
Why has God delayed? I said delayed and not unanswered.
Over and over in recent years, I have watched in astonishment our God answers this prayer in multiple facets. My faith became real and vibrant. My prayer life ignited and the enemy shuddered. Our marriage became a precious treasure and we are thriving. My husband now lives with a transformed wife and a transformed life he cannot deny.
DO NOT lean on your own understanding because our Great Big God has ALL things in His sovereign hand. And that's a fact!
Rejoice this Thankful Thursday because God answers prayer. In all ways acknowledge Him then STAND BACK and behold His glory.
Be blessed my friends, Your unanswered prayers are in the powerful hands of our Lord. Lynn
