Day 7-Praying For My Husband

  "No temptation has overtaken you but such as is common to man; and God is faithful, who will not allow you to be tempted beyond what you are able, but with the temptation will provide the way of escape also, so that you will be able to endure it." - 1 Corinthians 10:13 (NASB)

It is no secret that every day we are faced with temptations. Now, we are not talking about temptations like our favorite-calorie laden dessert, but temptations that if followed, bring damage to ourselves, to others, and our walk with God.

Every day custom made temptations are brought into your husband’s life.

This verse show us several things. One, we are all tempted. Second, God only allows temptations in our lives that we can overcome. And third, when we are tempted, God has made a way to escape it.

Today as you pray for your husband, claim this verse for him. No matter what temptation comes his way today, God has made a way of escape so that he can have victory.

Just like the emergency exit chart on the back of a hotel door, God has made an escape route for every temptation that comes his way today. He can overcome the temptations as he submits his life to God and looks to Him for the escape route.

Father I pray that eddie will see that he is like everyone else. Today temptations will come into his life. I pray that he will see these temptations for what they are - an attack of Satan. Remind him today that You have already provided victory over the temptation and have provided a way of escape. Help him to submit to You today, and look for the escape route that you have provided in every temptation.
In Jesus Name.

eddie, today I am praying that when a temptation comes your way, you will remember that you are no different than anyone else; we are all tempted. I am praying that you remember that God has limited the temptations in your life to those that you can overcome with His strength. I am also praying that when temptations come your way today, you will see the escape route God has provided so you can have victory over the temptation. love, denise
