YOUR SPOUSE STRUGGLES WITH LUST

With all the temptations and sensual temptations that come your husband’s way, what should a wife do?

In Shaunti Feldhahn’s book “For Women Only”, she gives the following suggestion on what a wife should do.

I have added the scriptures to enhance your learning.

  1. PRAY FOR HIM

Your spouse needs your steadfast prayers more than anything else.

Praying for your spouse is part of your duty as a “helpmeet.”

1Tim.2:1 “Therefore I exhort first of all that supplications, prayers, intercessions, and giving of thanks be made for all men.”

  1. CHECK YOUR HEART.

Accept the struggle he has with lust and encourage him rather than freak out and conclude the worst about him.

Prov.2:2 “…apply thine heart to understanding.”

 Prov.2:11 “Discretion shall preserve thee, understanding shall keep thee.”

The more understanding you are, the more loved he will feel.

  1. DETERMINE YOUR INVOLVEMENT LEVEL.

Men don’t need a critique, but an encourager.

Jude 1:16 “These are…complainers, walking after their own lusts; and their mouth speaketh great swelling words…”

  1. BECOME A SUPPORT.

Ask what you can do to help.

Put yourself on his team to help him win this fight.

Gen.2:18 “And God said, “It is not good that man should be alone; I will make him a helper comparable to him.”

  1. DRESS MODESTLY.

Are you on some mans rolodex because of how you dress?

Because women aren’t visual, they many times don’t really understand what they are doing to the men around them.

Are you cluttering up a good husbands mind and tempting him to dishonor his wife?

2Cor.7:1 “”…dearly beloved, let us cleanse ourselves from all filthiness of the flesh and spirit, perfecting holiness in the fear of God”

 1Tim.2:9-10 “And women should be…quiet and sensible in manner and clothing…”

The items listed above that are according to God’s commands, are not hard to do.

Isn’t your husband worth it?

Didn’t you marry him “for better or worst?”

Esther was called and intelligently designed “for such a time as this” to keep her people from being destroyed.

What about you?

Maybe you were designed “for such a time like this” to be used by God to be a testimony to your husband and family.

How powerful!!!

NOTE:  Daily there is a new post to help your marriage succeed.

    How powerful indeed! Sooo true Sister Nancy! Several years ago, someone lent me their cd’s on “every man’s battle”. Didnt want to listen to it but i felt compelled to. Learned what our husbands struggle with & how visual they are. Honestly, it was VERY difficult to swallow initially but i’ve learned to empathize & you know what, when we go somewhere & i know there might potentially be women inappropriately dressed or if it just unexpectedly presents itself, I warn my husband. I make him aware of what might be there so that he can prepare his state of mind & prepare to guard himself. When i began doing this, i told him that i just wanted to help & he’s totally ok with it. I do the same thing w/my son. Sadly i do this all the time since we’re constantly surrounded by perversion once we step out of our home. Our poor men dont need to look for this, theyre constantly faced with it daily!!! And women, being stylish does not mean you have to reveal body parts. You can be on trend AND be modest at the same time! Think of your hubbies & sons and “do unto others what you want others to do unto you.”

    Thanks S. Nancy for this awesome post!
