Wife’s Inspiration 1 on 1

Read Ephesians 5:22-33




Yes again today we are focusing on our role in marriage as a wife or desiring to be a wife. Wives have a unique position in a marriage. The bible says, in Proverbs 31:30 Charm is deceptive, and beauty is felting; but a woman who fears the LORD is to be praised. This scripture is referencing to a Godly wife. The spirit that dwells within you should be Christ like. Galatians 5:22-23 But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, forbearance, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness and self-control. Against such things there is no law. These are the fruits of the spirit that should dwell in a Godly woman or wife.
As a wife you should support and encourage your husband. Lift him up and give him praise so that he is confident that you support him and love him.  A godly wife must submit to her husband and allow him to lead. Being submissive doesn’t make you less of a person. A woman that can submit to God shows that she has strength, dignity and devotion which means you should have the same things for your husband. You will not be the perfect mate because no one is perfect. Continue to grow in Christ Jesus so that you can grow godly in your marriage.  Remember as a wife you have a unique position! Read Proverbs 31 in your spare time on how to be a godly woman.

 ~Your are blessed

  1. I love this post I think too many times we mirror our image of how we should be or conduct ourselves as wives on the view of the world but forgetting that the world is not of Christ we should strive to be a woman of God and be a wife to our husband through the roles and teachings God has set in place for us in order for the marriage to be continuously pleasing to God.
