Place Your Full Confidence in God/ Commit Yourself to Time Alone with God
Scripture of Week to Memorize
“A Wife of Noble Character who can find?
She is worth far more than rubies.
Her Husband Has full confidence in her
and lacks nothing of value.”
Passage of Day to Read – Day 1
“For your Maker is your Husband —
the Lord Almighty is His name —
the Holy One of Israel is your Redeemer:
he is called the God of all the earth.
The Lord will call you back
as if you were a wife deserted and distressed in spirit —
a wife who married young,
only to be rejected” says your God.
Passage to Read – Day 2
Very early in the morning, while it was still dark, Jesus got up, left the house and went off to a solitary place, where he prayed.
Simon and his companions went to look for , and when they found him, they exclaimed: “Everyone is looking for you!”
Jesus replied, “Let us go somewhere else — to the nearby villages — so I can preach there also. That is why I have come.”
So he traveled throughout Galilee, preaching in their synagogues and driving out demons.
Today the trait “noble” is harder to find more than ever before. Let’s define it first. It means dignified and gracious. In the Amplified Bible the word for noble is rendered “capable, intelligent, and virtuous.” Such a woman would definitely be hard to find in the world today. Are you such a woman? Am I? Not yet, but I am working on it. Work on it with me.
We are intelligent, dignified, virtuous, capable, gracious women who fill with full confidence in those whose around and in whom rely on us most no matter whom that shall be. People around cam have total confidence in us because our confidence rests in God and we live appropriately.
What’s the ultimate sign that someone loves you? It is that they would lay down their life for you. Well, God has shown his love for us. Jesus laid down his life to make sure that someday in the future each of us will be special guests at the ultimate wedding in heaven, when Jesus holds the celebration for the church as his eternal bride. (see Revelations 21)
Don’t focus on human feedback. Focus on your relationship with you Heavenly Husband and live to please Him. During God’s metamorphose of your life, You will become a even more beautiful bride and a woman of noble character that will in the end bring her praise from the people most important. It will not happen over night, but enjoy the inner satisfaction that come from becoming the woman God wants me to be.
Prayer is your direct line to God and is so important that you should have a special place that is only yours and God’s. Let it be your Pray Closet ( oasis, corner, space, or just plan area) that is set aside just for your time with God.
Henri Nouwen said,
“Discipline is the human effort to the space in which
God can be generous and give us what we need. “
According to Proverbs 31 the husband is to have “full confidence” in his wife. “Confidence comes in a relationship from investing time in that relationship.” You have to communicate in that relationship. So that for God to have full confidence in you, you have to talk to Him and obey him.
“God wants us to stand out as woman who know we have something of value. If you want to have something valuable to offer the world, we must have something of value to offer.” The value we are talking about is more than material value. See this world puts dollars and cents on everything. They put it on human lives. Yes, it’s still legal in some countries. But I’m talking about investing your time in seeking and exploring heavenly treasures such as knowledge of Scripture, and the power to demonstrate the fruit of the Spirit, spiritual insight, ability to carry the presence of God with us where go,
Do you want to be an inspiration to the people that you meet and to everyone around you and mean something to you? Yes, you do! The only way you can do that is by putting God first in your life and talking to Him first thing in the morning?
Bruce Wilkison said,
“I have yet to find a respected leader throughout history who had devotions at night.”
Morning talks with God set to tone for the day. If you talk to God first thing in the morning, God can also order your life. I ask Him what He wants me to do that day and He lets me know.
I have found that I have the worst days when I am rushed out the door and miss my time with God. It’s my own fault because I didn’t hear my alarm, but my day is just no good. Now on those I try to make time for God and then after that my day does seem to get better. I know how that sounds, but it is true!
Before you meet with husband, , before you face your family, before fix breakfast, before deal with the whole world, before you absolutely anything, start your day our right by having a meeting with God.
I challenge you to take the first 30 minutes or more every day for 2 weeks straight to talk to God. Then leave me a comment and let me know how you feel. I know that God have worked miracles in my life just because I spend time talking to Him.
