1 Peter 3:6 “…as Sarah obeyed Abraham, calling him lord, whose daughters you are if you do good and are not afraid with any terror.”
This passage of scripture has always captured my spirit. What in the world could cause a wife to be afraid with “terror?” I have studied this word and can’t find any other references in the Bible of its use. Wow! We are considered Sarah’s daughters, with the capacity to call our husbands ‘lord’ if we do good and are not afraid with any terror. We look at “do good” quite often, especially since it’s referenced in Proverbs 31 also. But for this post, let’s explore terror. It’s such a strong word. Terror is extreme fear. What fears do we have that would prevent us from serving our husbands?
I bind the fear of him leaving.
I bind the fear of his death.
I bind the fear of him cheating.
I bind the fear of him not loving me.
I bind the fear of him not being a good steward.
I bind the fear of him not having wisdom.
I bind the fear of me not making him happy.
I bind the fear of other women taking him.
I bind the fear of not being able to fulfill my personal assignment.
Are there anything other things that cause you to fear? When you acknowledge it, bind it immediately.
The devil knows if he can cause us to fear that we won’t be willing to be good to or serve our husbands because something – sometimes subconsciously – will hold us back. I decree and declare that we are free today. We are free from terror in the name of Yeshua (Jesus). We are free to be good to and serve our husbands.
