Sensitive Spouse

Written by Boyd Bailey

Thoughts from daily Bible reading for today- January 24, 2012

“While Pilate was sitting on the judge’s seat, his wife sent him this message: “Don’t have anything to do with that innocent man, for I have suffered a great deal today in a dream because of him.” Matthew 27:19

Smart is the spouse who is sensitive to his or her spouse. God placed your husband or wife in your life to speak His thoughts through them. This doesn’t mean every word from a marriage partner is gospel, but it does mean we are wise if we listen to their admonishments. Suggestions from your spouse are not to be slighted, but taken seriously.

Rarely have I suffered harm by taking my wife’s advice, but many times have I travailed for not trusting her instincts. Does your spouse know about the financial decision you are considering? Even if they are not interested, you honor them by asking for their input and keeping them informed of the facts. A sensitive spouse takes the time to communicate.

“The way of fools seems right to them, but the wise listen to advice.” Proverbs 12:15

The concerns of a spouse may subside once they have time to prayerfully process the data, and get to know and trust those who are involved. It takes faith and patience to prolong the process, but it will lead to the best decision. Waiting takes the weight of the decision off you, and allows other godly advisors to get involved.

Create a habit of going to the Lord first and to your spouse second. If you are afraid of what either might think then recognize this is a sign to listen intently. Thank the Lord for a spouse who cares enough to speak up when they are concerned. Listen to them and love them through the process with prayer and collaboration. Christ gave you a sensitive spouse, so you can learn to be sensitive to them and to Him.

“However, each one of you also must love his wife as he loves himself, and the wife must respect her husband” (Ephesians 5:33).

What decision am I currently contemplating where I need to invite my spouse’s input?

    I really needed this today. I was just praying for the sensitivity of my husband towards me on my ride into work this morning. Ialso deal with having anxiety about coming to him with issues because I expect a back-and-forth struggle almost every time. I have to be able to really hear what he’s trying to say without taking it personally or as an attack on my ideas.

    SO blessed me this morning.

    Thank you!

    Thank you so much for your messages and inspiration, for bringing us closer or in some cases, BACK to GOD OUR FATHER and his son OUR SAVIOR JESUS CHRIST>it has been my wife who has discovered this site and shares the messages that touch my heart and help us heal our relationship. My heart breaks for Pilates wife, it seems however that the situation was fixed, GOD’s Plans were required to be fullfiled, which meant that terrible suffering and ultimate death of our Brother and Savior Jesus. What a terrible burden she must have born, we are lucky to have such wise and powerful women in our lives. GOD BLESS YOU and THANK YOU for sharing your love and the WORD with us.

  5. I’m the business owner of JustCBD Store company (justcbdstore.com) and I’m presently looking to broaden my wholesale side of business. I really hope that anybody at targetdomain is able to provide some guidance 🙂 I thought that the most suitable way to do this would be to connect to vape companies and cbd stores. I was hoping if anybody at all could recommend a qualified website where I can purchase Vape Shop B2B Data List I am currently looking at creativebeartech.com, theeliquidboutique.co.uk and wowitloveithaveit.com. Not exactly sure which one would be the most suitable option and would appreciate any advice on this. Or would it be simpler for me to scrape my own leads? Suggestions?

    Howdy, There’s no doubt that your site could be having browser compatibility issues. Whenever I look at your blog in Safari, it looks fine however, when opening in I.E., it has some overlapping issues. I simply wanted to give you a quick heads up! Apart from that, wonderful website!
