Husband, please, take your seat.

October 4, 2016

"Her husband is known in the [city's] gates, when he sits among the elders of the land."

Proverbs 31:23

 

 

 

For some couples, their names are synonymous. They just go together. To say one of their names is to immediately identify and recognize the other. Exhibit A:

 

Abraham and _ _ _ _ _

Samson and _ _ _ _ _ _ _

Abigail and _ _ _ _ _

Aquila and _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _

Elizabeth and _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _

Hillary and _ _ _ _

 

You get the point. The ishshah of Proverbs 31 was no different. Though her name is not specifically given, she was well known throughout their land; as was her husband: especially *when he took his place at the gate. And for a wife, there's no feeling like seeing her husband sitting in his rightful, God-given place and operating humbly in his God-given calling, function, gifting, and ministry.

 

If your husband is not yet in his rightful place intercede, and ask Jehovah to get him there (Ezekiel 22:30). Your husband's heart (and feet) are in God's hands. He knows how to make names great and get them known in the earth. He did it for Abraham (Genesis 12:2), David (2 Samuel 7:9), and of course, Jesus (Acts 4:12).

 

Go ahead and add your husbands name to that list because The Lord is about to help him take his seat, and thereby enlarge his territory.
