For years I prayed for my husband to be a strong spiritual leader. The first thing God taught me is for anyone to lead in anything, there must first be willing people standing ready to follow. If I am not watching for his lead with willing and submissive readiness to accept God’s use of his way of leading, why should he lead.
The next thing God taught me is when I let my husband experience my willingness to trust God to use him to lead the way, he grows stronger in following God in his leading. God does amazing things for those who surrender the controls and willingly sit in the co-pilot’s seat.
