Everyone knows that as THE HUSTLE MAMA, I speak on women’s issues… that of motherhood, daughterhood, sisterhood, corporate-hood, families, dating, grinding, and most of all RELATIONSHIPS (ding, ding, ding!!!!). It is my platform for everything I hold dear. It is what my ministry of healing is all about. Forget finding my passion; I have learned that I have many of those. I have found my PURPOSE for walking this earth. It has taken me almost the entire 42 years of my existence to do, but I am there nonetheless. I read the word of God daily, and I also read pre-set scriptures from BIBLE.com to gain wisdom from Proverbs daily 365 days out of the year. Well, today’s scriptural reference for understanding from the site was so on point to where I am right now I had to share. Please see below their entry as the wisdom insight thought for the day.
Proverbs Day 166 (KJV):
Thoughts for the Day
One of the themes that Proverbs stresses over and over is how to have good relationships. Here is a statement that tells us that one who finds a true and good wife will obtain the favor of the Lord. How does one find a good wife? Studying the Word of God, we discover that to find a good wife, one must first be a good man who is following God. If one is seeking God with his whole heart and desires to have a mate so that he may serve the Lord together with his wife, God will guide him to the right person.
When any person makes a total commitment to God, the Lord promises that man will have His favor on his life. He will also be led in the right path of righteousness that is ordered by the Lord.
Proverbs 12:2: “A good man obtaineth favor of the LORD: but a man of wicked devices will he condemn.”
Psalm 37:23: “The LORD orders the steps of a good man: and he delighteth in his way.”
Proverbs 31 describes a good wife. She is one who is virtuous and trustworthy. Today many people are marrying for the wrong motives and end up with the wrong person. When someone is looking for a mate, they should make sure the person is committed to Christ and loves the Lord. They should also have character and virtue as their lifestyle.
Prayer for the Day
Dear Heavenly Father, Thank you for my good husband. I am most blessed, Lord. I pray for those who are seeking a good mate that they will be guided by Your Holy Spirit and find just the right person with whom they will share their lives. Lord, I also pray for those who are already married and ask that you strengthen the good marriages and heal those marriages that have suffered wounds and hurt. May each mate seek more of Your love and be willing to lay down their lives for each other. Let us all be filled with more of Your love daily. May love to pour from me today no matter what I face. I ask this in the name of the Lord, Jesus Christ. Amen.
