Genesis 2:18 states “The LORD God said, "It is not good for the man to be alone. I will make a helper suitable for him."
I simply love this video of Ayesha Curry throwing confetti to cheer her man on! You can tell his entire demeanor changed once she threw the confetti and he saw her. It is a great example of one of the roles we play as wives. We are called to be our husbands “helper”. In this blog I am going to talk about the importance of encouraging your husband. For those who are single – this is still something relevant for you so you are ready for the future.
Let’s face it – we all have challenges in life. On top of the day to day struggles we face, our men carry the weight of being provider, protector and leading. As the head of the household he stresses about being the best and providing the best for his wife and family. We need to be the sense of encouragement when he is down. No man wants a nagging wife!! Be encouraging!
Here are some questions and points we can use to assist is in encouraging our husbands:
Think about your husband’s strengths and weaknesses. In what areas does he need your help?
Write down 1-3 ways that you can better support him to make your marriage stronger.
Write in your own words what it means to be your husband’s helper
If you are married - write a prayer to the Lord and ask for His help in fulfilling your commitment to the things you wrote down.
If you are single, write your commitment to being that kind of helper.
Goal: Proverbs 31:11-12 The heart of her husband has confidence in her, and he has no lack of gain. She brings him good and not evil all the days of her life.
We will revisit Genesis 2:18 during our #WifeyWednesday segment because It is applicable in so many areas.
I hope this post helps you see the importance of encouraging your husband.
