Trophy Wife

Divider

An excellent wife is the crown of her husband

Proverbs 12:4


In the eyes of the world, Esther would be considered a trophy wife of King Ahasuerus. She was taken from her uncle’s home because of her beauty. Esther was included with seven other attractive young women to be subjected to a year of cosmetics and perfumes to prepare for one night with the king. He would decide if one of the women would be the next queen. Those not chosen would become a part of the king’s harem for the rest of their lives.

Esther was loved and chosen by the king. Her story could’ve ended there but for the fact that God had a purpose and plan for her. She was more than just a trophy wife because it was “such a time as this” in which her fasting, praying, and interceding saved the Jews from annihilation.

Just like Esther, many Christian women believers are married to unbelieving or carnal Christian husbands. Sometimes it’s easy to feel like the praying, fasting, and serving their husbands are all in vain. However, God hears the prayers of this wife and she is a wonderful blessing to her husband even when he doesn’t realize it.

While a trophy wife could be considered a derogatory term, a praying wife is a wonderful trophy—she is the lifeline for the family. God’s word teaches that if an unbelieving husband is willing to remain with his believing wife, she may win him over to the Lord. It may be difficult at times; however, God sees and knows her. He will sustain and strengthen her faith to change her husband’s heart just as He used Esther to rescue an entire nation.

Prayer

Dear Lord, help me to be strong and stand in the gap for my unbelieving husband. I know that there’s nothing too hard for You. Give me the wisdom on how to pray. Amen.

In His Service,
