Happily Incompatible

If we want our children to go on for the Lord, it is essential that we are one with our husband. The Lord Jesus said a divided house cannot stand. When the enemy tries to bring in trouble, and we feel like giving up, let’s remember that the Lord’s glory is at stake, and so is our household. We cannot expect the Lord to give us a “godly seed” if we aren’t one with our husband and especially if we decide to part ways! Yes, it will take work. But the Lord will give us grace to put our husbands ahead of ourselves, to esteem them better than ourselves, and to put to death the old nature that exerts itself in so many ways.
Perhaps some of you wonder, but how can I go on as one with my husband when he isn’t even saved or if he isn’t following the Lord very closely? 1 Corinthians 7:13-14 says, “And the woman which hath an husband that believeth not, and if he be pleased to dwell with her, let her not leave him. For the unbelieving husband is sanctified by the wife, and the unbelieving wife is sanctified by the husband; else were your children unclean; but now are they holy [or sanctified].” God wants you to stay with the man you married, and He has set apart (which is the meaning of the word sanctified) your children for Himself. Always remember that your children belong to Him. Let them see Jesus in your life!
