The man is the one who protects in a relationship. Not the woman protecting the man. I believe that a good Husband will always physically protect His Wife when another is trying to hurt her. Or has hurt her. He will love her and show her by protecting her against the evil people who want to hurt her. No matter what.
Proverbs 18:22 (KJV) - "He who FINDS A WIFE, finds a GOOD THINGS and obtains favor from the Lord." Nowhere in this Scripture do I find it telling women to go find a man, ask them out or ask them to marry them. Notice that when he pursues and finds her, it's favor of the Lord and what he finds is GOOD. When it's reversed,,, well, let's just say, it's not all rainbows and sunshine. So STOP SEARCHING AND WAIT ON THE LORD.
Dear Heavenly Father, Thank you for this wonderful gift of a husband, companion and friend. Remind me to celebrate his achievements, and to turn my focus away from his faults. Equip me to be the help meet you have called me to be, and the friend my husband needs me to be.
Dear Heavenly Father, I bring my husband before you today asking that you would bless him and shape him into the man he was designed to be. Give him strength to lead our family, as Christ led the church with love and humility. Equip him with wisdom to make good decisions that are pleasing to you.
