My obedience to God opens up doors for Him to move in my life in ways that He cannot and will not when I am walking in disobedience to Him…..Men long to be trusted…..he is most encouraged and motivated to become more and more the man God calls him to be. This approach is so much more powerful than a worldly approach of nagging, criticizing, condemning, and preaching. A wife’s obedience to God motivates her husband like nothing else can to open his heart to want to hear and obey God. I don’t control my husband. I let God change me and allow the changes God makes in me inspire my husband.
