Hear Him Out

“You know this, my beloved brothers and sisters. Now everyone must be quick to hear, slow to speak, and slow to anger” James 1:19, New American Standard Bible.

To my married sisters, and those preparing to be married one day, when your husband opens up to you, hear him out without interrupting. If you respond too quickly, he may retreat back into that place of keeping everything to himself. Anytime a man feels safe enough to share what is really on his heart and mind, it says a lot about how he feels about you as his wife. So, hear him out. He will be surprised when you love him for opening up, and draw near to him. Men worry of how you will see them if they show any sign of weakness and vulnerability. But they are surprised when we come to their side and say, “Thank you so much for opening up to me. I know you are strong, and what you shared with me doesn’t make you weak. It takes real strength to open up. I know God is going to help you with this situation and you will win in this too just like you did before.” My sister, be that lap he comes and lay his head on. Be the hands his heart safely trusts in. Hear him out.

Prayer: Father God, thank you for your wisdom. Help me apply it to the men in my life. Help me hear them out and not be so swift to speak. Help me be swift to hear. Help me be patient when my husband is trying to open up to me. Help me be the wife he needs. In Jesus’ name.

“The heart of her husband trusts in her, and he lacks nothing of value” Proverbs 31:11, Berean Study Bible.

  1. πŸ™ŒπŸ™ŒπŸ™ŒAmen! I so agree with this statement: Hear Him Out! This is words of wisdom for how the wife(help meet) is suppose to be to and for her husband. This is why it’s important of who we connect with as a mate. That someone suitable for our souls helping each one to get to their destination God has planned for each in the earth to bring “GLORY” to His Name as we have got together, complementing each other in our walks with The Lord. There is so much we’re to do as wives to assist our husbands in growth. Loving him when he’s Clark Kent as well as we do when he is Superman. It’s real everyday work to build with and for the purpose God has joined us together. β€οΈβ€οΈβ€οΈπŸ›πŸ›πŸ›

    James 1:19
    Hearing and Doing the Word

    19Wherefore, my beloved brethren, let every man be swift to hear, slow to speak, slow to wrath:

  2. I am more than just a helpmate. I am peace, joy, love and all the fruits of the spirit. I was created because I am needed. My husband needs me. I will not fall victim to the enemy and lead my husband astray. I will be like Ruth, Deborah, and all the woman in the Bible that became the good things that God created them to be. Quick to listen and slow to speak. Equipt with discernment, wisdom, knowledge, and understanding. Lord, help me to become this type of woman while I work and wait for my husband to arrive in Jesus’ name I pray. Amen

  3. I am not married but, have three sons and this speaks volumes. Thank you. Blessings πŸ‘€πŸ™πŸ½β™₯οΈπŸ“–πŸ™ŒπŸ½

  4. Praise God for the words of wisdom. πŸ‘πŸΎπŸ‘πŸΎ

  5. Powerful message I needed this as a Black Woman I don’t play with the men in my family I agree I need just have an ear I want them to be all they were destined by God to be even those their were no strong men rolemodels in my family I thank God for His grace and mercy I just want to always know the real Father is Spirit and He can teach us as men and women. That was my motive I love them so much I pray they will be great Godly men I appreciate this messageπŸ˜ͺπŸ’œπŸ™πŸ½

  6. I am thankful for this message too.
    I like to think my husband forgave me for when he opened up about his beliefs but somehow the self righteous Jennie appeared before she could be squelched and this other evil me destroyed the conversation. I don’t remember the exact timing of this conversation but for many reasons our relationship was strained but I think the last 3 days we had together were better somehow and I asked God to tell him I need his forgiveness since he died before I could settle things, and i cast all those cares on Him.
    I also wrote my own prayer for mr future husband and me, mrs future wife that I learned from my mistakes and will seek first the kingdom of God, not lean on my own understanding but listen for the Lord’s voice.
