Created to be His Help Meet ~ 5

Chapter 5 ~ The Gift of Wisdom

  • Ask God for wisdom to become the very best help meet.You serve Christ by serving your husband, whether your husband deserves it or not.
  • Women who have difficulties in their marriage usually follow their feelings and just react. You are not thinking from God's perspective.
  • James 1:5 ~ If any of you lack wisdom, let him ask of God, that giveth to all men liberally, and upbraideth not; and it shall be given him"
  • It is a gift, but it is not given unless you ask for it.
  • You need the precious gift of wisdom to be able to hold your tongue and be thankful when your flesh would strike back in anger.
  • You need wisdom to see how feeling sorry for yourself is far from the heart of God.
  • The gift of wisdom will enable you to serve and honor your husband because you are serving and honoring God.
  • The more you seek to obey God; and the more you know him, the more you will care about the things He values.
Time to Consider

  • To commit your way unto the Lord is to say, "Not my will, but thine, be done."
  • Psalm 37:4 Delight thyself also in the Lord: and he shall give thee the desires of thine heart.
