WHAT MAKES YOUR SPOUSE MISERABLE
One of the most important needs in your spouse’s life is to feel important and significant!
Lack of significance is a primary source of emotional pain.
The definition of importance is greatness of worth and influence; significant; needed; special.
Eph.2:10 “For we are His workmanship, created in Christ Jesus for good works…”
Do you have hindrances that keep you from being yourself?
We all have certain people that we feel comfortable being around.
Those people put us in our comfort zone and we can act whatever way we want and feel we will be accepted and appreciated.
CASE AND POINT: My husband and I don’t go to all the church activities like picnics, parties, etc. As soon as we walk in, things go a little quiet and we feel that everyone becomes uncomfortable. I want to tell them not to be uncomfortable because we spill food, trip, call people by the wrong names and burp!
Your spouse will avoid people and situations when there is the risk of failure or rejection just like you would.
That means that your spouse needs your love and encouragement.
Misery will enter your spouse’s life if they feel they have no value, purpose or significance.
God is the one who placed in your spouse a hunger for significance and to be important.
The Holy Spirit is here to fulfill the hunger to be important but God also gave you to your spouse to do that also.
Gods word says that He created a wife for Adam to meet his need for companionship and understanding.
You are his “Helpmeet”!
You are his companion, his cheerleader, and his friendly friend!
And DON’T FORGET IT!!
I didn’t say it!
God said it in Genesis and Malachi 2.
Get out those “pom poms” the game is on!
When Adam fell, it robbed our spouse of their self-worth and he is now on a continual search for significance.
If your spouse’s parents were not lovable or protective of them, your spouses need for significance may be of the utmost importance.
Your spouse will need time to change along with your encouragement, God’s word, and the power of the Holy Ghost.
Christ died for us and exchanged His life for our life.
That is how important you and your spouse are to Him.
He wants you to represent Him to your spouse.
It is your divine appointment!
Don’t miss out on your purpose and significance in life.
It is of the utmost importance!
