OPEN HEAVEN [9 AUGUST 2019] WIVES, BUILD YOUR HOMES

Open Heaven 9 August 2019: [Friday] Daily Devotional By Pastor E.A Adeboye – Wives, Build your Homes
WIVES, BUILD YOUR HOMES – Friday August 9th 2019
Memorise: Every wise woman buildeth her house: but the foolish plucketh it down with her hands. Proverbs 14:1
Read: 1st Peter 3:1-6 (KJV)

Likewise, ye wives, be in subjection to your own husbands; that, if any obey not the word, they also may without the word be won by the conversation of the wives;
While they behold your chaste conversation coupled with fear.
Whose adorning let it not be that outward adorning of plaiting the hair, and of wearing of gold, or of putting on of apparel;
But let it be the hidden man of the heart, in that which is not corruptible, even the ornament of a meek and quiet spirit, which is in the sight of God of great price.
For after this manner in the old time the holy women also, who trusted in God, adorned themselves, being in subjection unto their own husbands:
Even as Sara obeyed Abraham, calling him lord: whose daughters ye are, as long as ye do well, and are not afraid with any amazement.

Bible in one year: 1st Samuel 6-7, Ezekiel 31:10-18, Hymn: Sing hymn 16
Message:-
In His wisdom, the Holy Spirit has chosen to speak to wives in today’s devotional. Please note that He is speaking to wives and not just women. Obviously, not all women are wives. 

OPEN HEAVEN 9 AUGUST 2019 WIVES, BUILD YOUR HOMES


However, every wife is first a woman before becoming a wife. Are you a woman trusting God to change your status from single to married? I pray that God will grant you your good heart’s desire this season in Jesus’ Name. In God’s kingdom, only wives are given the assignment of building homes, not mistresses or “bed-partners”. In other words, a mistress or bed-partner does not have the divine grace to build a godly family. With divine wisdom, a woman develops into a wife who builds her home. This wisdom comes through the fear of God, which dwells in every woman who has received Jesus into her heart (Proverbs 9:10, Revelation 3:20). Jesus is the embodiment of God’s wisdom (1st Corinthians 1:24), and in this age of enlightenment, it takes Jesus in the life of a woman to do according to all that the Holy Spirit instructs in today’s Bible reading.

Godly wives are distinguishable by their chastity and general attitude of life, which is a product of the fear of God they possess and not necessarily because of the fear of their husbands. It is a wise thing for a wife to build her home; only a foolish person would pull down the house her or she lives in. Many women who have pulled down their homes are now roaming the “streets of life”. Although they may pretend that all is well, they are actually hurting and nursing regrets over their past actions. Sadly, many of such women are now encouraging na├»ve wives to act against the interest of their homes so that they can become their companions in misery. No wonder the Holy Spirit warns in 1st Timothy 4:7, saying:

Open Heaven 9 August 2019: [Friday] Daily Devotional By Pastor E.A Adeboye – Wives, Build your Homes


“But refuse profane and old wives’ fables, and exercise thyself rather unto godliness.”

Some years ago, one of my daughters started having problems in her marriage, and she asked me to counsel her. I discovered that she was getting carried away by her academic achievements, because she had begged a PhD like her husband. So, I told her to be submissive to her husband of she really wanted to have a home. This suggestion was so ridiculous to her that she reminded me that she had a PhD like her husband!

Open Heaven 9 August 2019 Friday: Prayer Point


 I said to her, “No problem, since your PhD can solve your martial challenges, go ahead and apply its philosophical principles to build yourself a happy home.” She got the message and began to yield to her husband. Before long, peace, joy and progress returned to her home. My prayer for someone reading this devotional today is that your troubled home will receive peace and unspeakable joy in Jesus’ Name. Be wise and invite Jesus Christ into your home today, and you will be glad you did. 
Prayer Point
Father, give me Your wisdom to build my home according to Your pattern, in Jesus’ Name.
