for a long time i idolized my husband and put him before God. just recently i cast that down (meaning my husband is second to God and not my everything any longer)and put God back in the place He needs to be and have since seen God work in my life.
having that idol, blocked Gods work in my life.
what is it your struggling with giving up so God can be number one in your life?

What do you mean by putting your husband second and not idolizing your husband? If I understand correctly, the way we love our husbands is a representation of how we love God. For example: Submission to our husband is also submission to God, Reverence to our husband, reverence to God( reverence meaning respect) I think once we can get the concept of how marriage is designed we won't see loving him as idolizing but as a dress rehearsal for meeting the Husband of husbands.
My second opinion is that our marriage is the next most important relationship other than God. Once we get our relationship with God in order our relationship with our husband will line up without "casting hims down" . This is not a biblical concept.

Well, out of the hundreds of different Gods described by humanity, it's hard to understand exactly which one you're talking about. Here's just a sample of what's available.
My guess is that you're talking about the Christian God (although given the complete lack of discussion regarding Christ, it's also possible that you mean the Jewish God).
