THY MAKER IS THINE HUSBAND

THY MAKER IS THINE HUSBAND

Isaiah 54:5: “Thy Maker is thine Husband.”

The God of the Universe, the Creator of all things, and the Creator of YOU…..stays with you through your whole life, and supports and loves you as a husband. The word husband means a nurturer, supporter, protector and lover. Your God created you so that He could enjoy being all those things for YOU.

This is an awesome promise. Just stop to think about how powerful

those few words are. But, then, all words that come from the heart

of God are powerful.

Why did God make creation the way He did? He could have had

reproduction occur without male and female, so why did He do it

the way He did?

I believe He did it because He wanted a little bit of His love to be

felt in our lowly lives. He created humans as male and female, to

be united in marriage, under His loving eye.

There are many facets to His development of this concept —

one being that His people are His Bride (see my blog on the Bride of Christ)

The other is the miniature of that union in the household.

as the Word tells us in several places, the husband should be the

Provider, and protector of his wife and children.

The sad fact is, that in many households, for one reason or another,

The husband falls short of that, …(.not to diminish the fact that wives,

Also, fall short of their duties, but my point is made about the husbands for purposes of this piece)

The hardest to endure is when the husband CHOOSES not to do his duties that the Bible commands for a husband. This could include providing financially, emotionally, or spiritually, it could also mean emotional abuse (I purposely stop short of dealing with physical abuse because that should be reported and dealt with professionally).

Its hard for us to go through life taking on the burdens that should be carried by our husbands. We not only do their jobs, many times, but we seem to be “roped into” setting up things to protect them as well. This is extremely frustrating to say the least, and I have been there for many years.

While we know the concept of loving him through it all, looking for the best in him, and being the best wife, no matter what, these things are humanly impossible to do ourselves.

Only God can instill in us the right frame of mind to endure these things…..even to the point of showing the Joy of the Lord in the midst of it!!!

One way He does this is through the verse in Isaiah quoted above. As we go to Him in prayer and fellowship, He will show us how He will fill the gaps where our husbands fall short.

For instance, through the years, I have seen Him provide financially many times…….sustaining us even though the money wasn’t there.

Emotionally and Spiritually, He is infinitely there for us!!!!! All the love that our husbands don’t show, all the encouragement that he doesn’t give us, all the gratitude for our ‘going the extra mile’…..Our REAL husband gives us!!!!!

I even go on ‘dates’ with my Lord. When I’m in town, and go for lunch, He takes me out and we visit during lunch!!!!

When I’m working, walking, or whatever, I clench my fists as He holds my hand.

He is as close as our mind and soul will let Him be!!!!!

When my husband got very hard to endure, I would, internally, wink at Jesus and know that He was giving me strength. He’d smile at me.

He even gave me a song, which I printed below….it is for you, me, and all His daughters…….

Take some time to think about the simple verse in Isaiah, “Thy Maker is thy Husband”…. and let Him show you what a wonderful Husband He is for you!!!!!

Here is the song for you:

Some of you will remember the Christian song called “When God Ran”

The Lord, at that time, gave me different words for that song, and He gives them to YOU now:

*****************************************************

Almighty God, The Great I Am,
Immovable Rock, Omnipotent, Powerful,
Awesome Lord.
Victorious Warrior, Commanding King of Kings,
Mighty Conqueror and the only time,


The only time I ever saw Him run

Was when He ran to me, grabbed me in His arms,

Swung me all around and said “My little girl is here with me”

He looked in my face, wiped the tears from my eyes, and with Love in his voice, He said,

Girl, do you know how I love you?”

It took me by surprise, when God ran.

And when He ran to me, He sat me on His lap, wrapped me in His arms and held me, oh, so very tight.

He pulled me to His chest, rocked me back and forth, and with the softest voice, He said, “Hon, you’re so beautiful to Me.”

My tears were turned to Joy, when God ran.
