It is your DUTY to know what God told your husband
[Based on a Biblical Event Luke 1]
I’ve heard about you… especially during the Christmas season… you are the mother of John the baptist, the one who came to prepare a way for the Lord. Prior to that, you were Zechariah’s wife and between that you were barren.
Unable to give purpose to your purpose, must have been a hard pill to swallow. Then God decided you’ve had enough. Your whole story is uplifting but where I find inspiration is where they report you giving your child his name. When you’re pregnancy was being foretold, God told your husband that your son was to be called John. Then your husband became mute (as a sign that God is going to grant this blessing in its appointed time). But you weren’t there during this conversation. Fast forwarding, you gave birth to the child and the relatives want to name him after his father Zechariah but you said, he shall be named John. Girlfriend, I know that all women are clairvoyant when it comes to their husband. But HOW did you know? Fill a sister in! That’s some next level super woman stuff. Being that your husband is still mute at the time… they went to ask him and he wrote “John” on the paper confirming the name. That my dear woman is a wise woman.
Why is this so profound? Many women in this epoch rely on the husband to bring the manna (The Word) from God to them. Your story teaches me, yes, I may have a husband who is the head who God speaks to directly. It still remains my duty to keep my ears near the mouth of God, to know what God is speaking to my husband. In the event that he should forget, I will be right there to help him execute it.
There is nothing worse than 2 people traveling and none of them remember the path to take to their destination.
Modern Day Elizabeth, is your husband disabled? bling, mute, deaf, paralyzed, anxious, choleric, forgetful, stubborn, prideful … perhaps his disability isn’t listed here but you know it. You need to always know what God is whispering in your husbands years, so that in time of disability, you are still walking in the purpose. Don’t leave the responsibility all to your husband. Cover your husband, pray for him, pray with him. I know most women like to keep their ears opened when their husband is on the phone. It is time to keep your ears opened when your husband is talking to God. It may save your marriage. My Dear modern day Elizabeth, stay at the feet of Jesus.
