” A wife of noble character who can find? She is worth far more than rubies.” Proverbs 31:10
Men, if you are blessed enough to have a wife of noble character, then you are truly considered blessed and highly favored. She is worth far more than rubies. Love her, cherish her, protect her, nurture her, provide for her, listen to her, consider her, and bless her. Do not manipulate or control her, but take time out to understand her and be truthful to her at all times. Be loyal to her and comfort her emotionally, spiritually, financially, mentally and physically. If you do not attend to your beautiful and loving wife, you may be inviting a space for others to do that. Protect your relationship with your wife and do not give room to the devil or anyone else to enjoy what is your responsibility and your awesome labor of love. Be grateful to God if you have such a wonderful and rare gem as a wife of noble character who loves and adore you. Protect that awesome jewel with your life.
“Therefore, humble yourselves under the mighty hand of God, so that at the proper time he may exalt you.” 1 Peter 5:6
Wait for God to elevate you in the right time and season. Do not try to elevate yourself.
“ Humble yourselves therefore – Be willing to take a low place – a place such as becomes you. Do not arrogate to yourselves what does not belong to you; do not evince pride and haughtiness in your manner; do not exalt yourselves above others.” (www.biblos.com)
Take time today and count your blessings. You have a lot to be thankful for everyday. I have been taking inventory and have come up with astonishing results. I don’t have to worry about things like I used to. I live comfortably from the new blessings, opportunities and new friendships that God has blessed me with. I have an awesome family and I have friends who love me deeply. I want for nothing! That is so blessed and it is all because of God. I am so grateful. Count your blessings and begin to do your happy dance. I have been doing a lot of extra dancing lately and I will continue. Go on ahead and do that happy dance!
Blessed and wanting for nothing!
‘I will lift up mine eyes unto the hills, from whence cometh my help.2. My help cometh from the Lord, which made heaven and earth.’ —Psalm 121:1, 2.
If you need help today, ask the Lord to assist you in whatever it is that you need. Our help comes from the Lord, who created the heaven and the earth. If he created the world, he can certainly handle our problems, challenges, and issues. Allow him to help you in all that you do. Look to the hills.
“…Let the Lord be magnified, which hath pleasure in the prosperity of His servant.” Psalm 35:27
I have waited on the promises of God for decades. It is just now that many of the promises are coming to past. I had to endure many trials and challenges, just like you and anyone else. But the season is here and the blessings are overwhelming and over flowing. Never give up, continue to be faithful and when your season comes you will have to do just like I’m doing right now. I have to pinch myself to make sure I’m not dreaming and that I’m awake. I am blessed with prosperity more now than ever and I am so grateful. Prepare to be blessed and prepare to pinch yourself!

“Wait on the Lord, and keep his way, and he shall exalt thee to inherit the land: when the wicked are cut off, thou shalt see it. ” Psalm 37:34
Be encouraged today to know that the Lord will fight your battles for you and allow you to see the defeat of the wicked. It may seem like the wicked prospers with intensity, but there is a catch. The word promises that they will be cut off. (“Fret not thyself because of evildoers, neither be thou envious against the workers of iniquity. For they shall be cut down like he grass, and wiher as the green herb.” Psalm 34:1-2) We are to wait on the Lord, follow his commands and the Lord will exalt us with blessings to have an inheritance. While this is happening, the wicked shall witness it. Get ready to be overtaken by God’s favor while the wicked watches! The Lord shall exalt thee!
“…Thine is the kingdom, O LORD, and thou art exalted as head above all. Both riches and honour come of thee, and thou reignest over all; and in thine hand is power and might; and in thine hand it is to make great, and to give strength unto all.” 1 Chronicles 29:11b-12
God is the source and power who can bring blessings into our lives. He regins and his hand is powerful and is drenched in riches and honor for us to embrace. Through his existence we can become great and abide victoriously in his strength. God is exalted as head above all. He is the definitely the boss.
“In a similar way, you wives must submit yourselves to your husbands so that, even if some of them refuse to obey the word, they may be won over without a word through your conduct as wives.” 1 Peter 3:1
Wives, be encouraged today and know that if your husband is not abiding by the word of God, it may be possible for him to change by how you live your lifestyle. Teach and encourage him gently and submit to him. You may be surprised in how much his behavior begins to shape into the image of God through the word. Sometimes we may be the only “Jesus” that people see. That’s why we have to make sure that our behavior, conversation and lifestyle are inspirational and encouraging to our husbands. Your actions can change his life for the better. Action speaks louder than words and can be the best tool for a wife.
Proverbs 10:4(KJV): “He becometh poor that dealeth with a slack hand: but the hand of the diligent maketh rich.”
Whatever gifts you have been blessed with, work diligently at it with all of your might. Slacking can cause a tendency to develop laziness, which in turn will increase the chance of experiencing symptoms of poverty. Use what God has given you to bless your life and the lives of others. Work what you have and work what you have left. Work it!
