Who can find a virtuous and capable wife? She is more precious than rubies. Her husband can trust her, and she will greatly enrich his life. She brings him good, not harm, all the days of her life. Proverbs 31:10-12 (NLT)
1. WHO RULES YOUR SOUL (MIND, WILL, EMOTIONS) AND YOUR FLESH?
For the mind that is set on the flesh is hostile to God, for it does not submit to God’s law; indeed, it cannot.
Romans 8:7 (ESV)
SHIFT AWAY FROM MANIPULATION; ACTIVATE PRAYER AND USE GODLY WISDOM.
A wise woman builds her home, but a foolish woman tears it down with her own hands.
Proverbs 14:1 (NLT)
The wisdom from above is first of all pure. It is also peace loving, gentle at all times, and willing to yield to others. It is full of mercy and the fruit of good deeds. It shows no favoritism and is always sincere.
James 3:17 (NLT)
2. CHOOSE TO SUBMIT AND HUMBLE YOURSELF BEFORE GOD AND YOUR HUSBAND; CULTIVATE PEACE IN YOUR HOME.
God resists the proud, but gives grace to the humble. Therefore, submit to God. Resist the devil and he will flee from you.
James 4:6-7 (NKJV)
Wives, submit yourselves to your own husbands as you do to the Lord. For the husband is the head of the wife as Christ is the head of the church, his body, of which he is the Savior.
Ephesians 5:22-23 (NIV)
3. RECEIVE GOD’S GRACE AND FAVOR; STAND ALONGSIDE YOUR BELOVED!
The king loved Esther more than all the other women, and she obtained grace and favor in his sight more than all the virgins; so he set the royal crown upon her head and made her queen instead of Vashti.
Esther 2:17 (NKJV)
Her children stand and bless her. Her husband praises her: “There are many virtuous and capable women in the world, but you surpass them all!” Charm is deceptive, and beauty does not last; but a woman who fears the LORD will be greatly praised. Reward her for all she has done. Let her deeds publicly declare her praise.
