Day 28: His Self-Image

Lord, I pray that my husband will find his identity in You. Help him to understand his worth through Your eyes and by Your standards. May he recognize the unique qualities You've placed in him and be able to appreciate them. Enable him to see himself the way You see him, understanding that "You have made him a little lower than the angels, and You crowned him with glory and honor. You have made him to have dominion over the works of Your hands; You have put all things under his feet" (Psalm 8:4-6). Quiet the voices that tell him otherwise and give him ears to hear Your voice telling him that it will not be his perfection that gets him through life successfully, it will be Yours.

Reveal to him that "he is the image and glory of God" (I Corinthians 11:7), and he is "complete in Him, who is the head of all principality and power" (Colossians 2:10). Give him the peace and security of knowing that he is accepted, not rejected, by You. Free him from the self-consciousness that can imprison his soul. Help him to see who You really are so he'll know who he really is. May his true self-image be the image of Christ stamped upon his soul.* In Jesus' name I pray, Amen.

Whom He foreknew, He also predestined
to be conformed to the image of His Son,
that He might be the firstborn among many brethren.
- Romans 8:29
Arise, shine; for your light has come!
And the glory of the Lord is risen upon you.
- Isaiah 60:1
