Wisdom From A Mother
Chapter 1 of Proverbs 31 of the bible, we hear about a prophecy that King Lemuels mother taught him. This word was wisdom from heaven! From a mother to her son, it relays who he should marry, what kind of woman she should be, what kind of man he should become, and how he would be blessed along with their children.
We just celebrated Mothers Day this past Sunday, and hopefully you got to see your mother, and/or your children. Mother’s Day is such a special day to many who have the blessing of children in their home. For some it is a day of pain and sorrow, and others a day like any other day. But for all of you who are married, whether you have children or not, you do have a mother, and if you are reading this you are most likely married. This is a blessing of wisdom for your marriage!
Women Of God
This inspired word of God is a great example of how we as wives should portray our lives. We should read this passage in Proverbs and work towards this in our daily routines! Knowing, to be a great mother, you must first be a great wife! Order is always at the forefront of God’s direction for our lives and marriages.
For The Children
If you have sons, teach them this word, example it, and put it in their hearts to be a good man! Loving, faithful, and one that serves the Lord! Having daughters, teach them this word, example it in your marriage, and put it in their hearts to be a woman of God! Loving, and following all that is set before them in this scripture, and to pray for a man that is given to us in this passage!
Making Marriage Work
Proverbs 31 is a great outline of how to make a marriage work, to have a blessed home, and to set boundaries in marriage! We all have roles to partake of in our home, men, women, and children! We can look at each role and see what we need to work on! We will never be perfect, we will always need to grow, but we can use this as a guide in making our marriage work!
Praying For Your Marriage
When you read what your spouse should be doing, don’t automatically think or say, “Wow! They should be doing this or that!” A heart of a loving spouse will look at this and begin to pray for their spouse! Praying to be the kind of husband or wife that they are called to be by God. Pray for your spouse daily, for your marriage, for protection, and for love to flourish!
When I read this portion of scripture, I see a mother who inspired by the Lord! She shared with her son how to be faithful, and to search out a woman who is faithful! We have a God who is so faithful to us, and in turn we first need to learn to be faithful to Him! As we are faithful to Jesus, we can then be faithful to our spouse, marriage and children!!
We are praying for you today that you read through Proverbs 31 with a clean heart! Having fresh eyes, and a willingness to work on yourself and marriage! Praying God will help with any past hurts, to establish and maintain order in your home! Seeing your life and marriage bloom into a wonderful garden of blessings!!
Monday: Proverbs 31:1 says, “The words of king Lemuel, the prophecy that his mother taught him.” Praying for wisdom today in our marriages!
Tuesday: Proverbs 31:2 says, “What, my son? and what, the son of my womb? and what, the son of my vows?” Our mothers have given us many great things, this mother gave her wisdom to her son! Write down any wisdom you have been given by a mother in your life for marriage!
Wednesday: Proverbs 31:10 says, “Who can find a virtuous woman? for her price is far above rubies.” Praying today as you meditate on this scripture that God helps you to be a virtuous woman of God!
Thursday: Proverbs 31:3 says, “Give not thy strength unto women, nor thy ways to that which destroyeth kings.” and Proverbs 31:12 says, “She will do him good and not evil all the days of her life.” Pray over this portion: it’s just one example of ways to bless your marriage.
Friday: Proverbs 31:28 says, “Her children arise up, and call her blessed; her husband also, and he praiseth her.” When we keep our roles we will be blessed!
Saturday: Proverbs 31:11 says, “The heart of her husband doth safely trust in her, so that he shall have no need of spoil.” When you are praying for your marriage you can trust each other!
Sunday: Proverbs 31:31 says, “Give her of the fruit of her hands; and let her own works praise her in the gates.” When you are faithful, your fruit will be evident to all! Pray today for a faithful heart and marriage!!
Thank you for investing in your marriage and you too can have a happily ever married marriage!!
