Isaiah 26:3 Thou wilt keep him in perfect peace, whose mind is stayed on thee: because he trusteth in thee. 4 Trust ye in the LORD for ever: for in the LORD JEHOVAH is everlasting strength:
I have come to realize that each time I am fretful, anxious and stressed, it is as a result of my taking my eyes off the cross, trying to figure things out on my own.
Lord help me to trust you more, lean on you wholly with all my heart! I want your peace more and more, the peace that surpasses all understanding. Help me to receive that which can only come from you! Thank you Lord!
Are you aspiring to be like the Proverb 31 women? These are women of noble character, chaste, enterprising, God fearing, honest, loving, kind, faithful, compassionate and righteous species washed clean by the blood of Jesus. Sisters, we have it in us to be virtuous if we yield ourselves unto Jesus and allow His words to transform us to be vessels fit for Our Master’s use.
Virtuous woman has no room for gossips/rumor monger/tale bearer – she is a loyal friend using her free time to pray for her friends and spread the good news, backbiting – she sees good in others, jealousy – she is comfortable in her own skin, envy – she is contented and grateful with her lot in life, quarreling – she lives at peace with all men as long as it depends on her, chaste/modest – she respect and honors God with her body 1 Corinthians 6:20 and mind among other quality.
My dearest sisters in Christ, let us present our bodies as a living sacrifice, holy and acceptable to God for this is our true and proper worship Romans 12:1.
Our sphere of influence is vast giving us opportunity to make an impact for Christ in the next generation, if we start now and see our calling as part of raising those children God blessed us with as ambassadors of heaven. This is key to living out the legacy of Christ discipleship thereby preparing the way for the Lord Jesus second coming.
May the Lord forgive us wherever we have failed in the past and grant us more grace to live a life worthy of our calling, raising our children up in the way of the Lord, caring for our spouses and being Christ eyes, hands and legs to all that crosses our path in Jesus mighty name we pray.
