Proverbs 18:22 NIV “He who finds a wife finds what is good and receives favor from the Lord.”
Reflection Question: Are you already a wife in your spirit now?
What are the wifely qualities and characteristics we currently possess? Are we saved women of God? Do we have a quiet spirit (1 Peter 3)? Are we modest in our dress and hairstyles (1 Peter 3)? Do we know how to be “subject” to God because if we don’t how can we be subject to your own husband (1 Peter 3, Ephesians 5)? Is God the head of our lives (Ephesians 5)? Are we respectful toward others, especially men (Ephesians 5)? Do we now delight ourselves in the Lord (Psalm 37:4) because when we’re married we are supposed to delight ourselves in our husbands, “notices him and prefer him and treat him with loving concern, treasuring him, honoring him, and holding him dear” (Ephesians 5 AMP)?
According to King Lemuel’s mother and modern day mothers too, an excellent wife is hard to find. It is difficult to find a wife in whom a husband’s heart can trust. Are we trustworthy, giving, kind, industrious, strong, a good steward of our money, wise, faithful, a good steward of our time (or idle), noble, and honorable (Proverbs 31)?
Some of us think that God needs help in our man’s search for us (I’ve been guilty before), but God doesn’t. God will equip man with all He needs to find us. God will give man a glimpse, through supernatural binoculars, of the favor man can have when he discovers us. God will show man how good it will be when he finds us. God will even set up and supernaturally arrange the discovery place. We don’t have to try to be in a certain location so our husbands can find us. We don’t have to speed up God’s discovery process. All we have to do is be in a wifely state of being when God allows him to find us. All we have to do is be married to God until our husbands come.
Are you already a wife in your spirit? Are you ready to be found by the one who will seek? God has allowed me to see first hand and, even more so lately, second hand that marriage is not a joke. The enemy forges more attacks against the entity of marriage and the family that singles can’t even begin to fathom. If you’re not ready for war, stay single. If you’re not equally yoked with that man with THE MAN as the one who can wash you in the word (that means he is in just as deep with God or more than you), he isn’t the one. If you are vindictive and go “tic for tac,” stay single. If you know that God called you to the ministry of marriage, let God work on you now. Be faithful to God. If this is a difficult task, imagine how difficult it will be to be faithful in allowing the Holy Spirit to help you possess these wifely qualities. Jené Elaine Walker
Through the power of the Holy Spirit and in the authority of the name of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ, we are asking You O God to bless the entity of marriage, married couples, and prospective marriages.
1. Restore. Bring back the trust, love, communication, unity, and whatever else that was lost.
2. Rekindle. Bring back the passion, love, and chemistry that was once there at just the sight of him.
3. Return. Bring back the commitment that was once so deeply rooted in our hearts that no matter what happens we will never leave each other; we are totally committed to God, thus we are totally committed to each other.
4. Renew. Bring back the freshness to our relationships and make them like new again. Bring back new desires for and new attraction to our one and only spouse.
5. Remove. Take away all bitterness, lack, miscommunication, silence, stubbornness, hurt, unforgiveness, fear, and anything else that isn’t like You, Lord.
Marriages need healing. Lord the enemy is sneaking around and whispering to outsiders, using us to come between marriages. The enemy is hurling every attack of the mind at us to keep husband and wife in conflict and in bondage. We need a hedge of protection around marriages. Bless marriages God, like only You can do. With You all things are possible. We believe You for a healing today in Jesus’s name. Jené Elaine Walker
#FastingDay11 Because you’ve made it for 11 days or a few days during the last two weeks doesn’t mean the attacks will stop coming. Oh noooo. The enemy is about to increase the level of frequency and intensity of his attacks against you – more attacks on the job, at home, in your finances, with people conspiring against you in secret, in your relationship and with your children. “What’s the difference then? Why am I fasting?” I’m glad you asked:
•a hedge of protection around you shielding from the attacks, schemes, wiles, traps, foolishness, and drama
•peace that has you asking the devil, “that’s all you’ve got” in the midst of the attacks
•favor in the midst or fighting
•God fighting for you and you don’t even have to get your hands dirty
•inward, inner transformation so that the attacks don’t even affect you the way they used to
•increase during the attacks
Please believe the fast is not in vain. Don’t let the enemy trick you. God is in control. He sees you. He’s with you. He will honor you during and after this fast because you’re honoring Him. Dr.J.
#FastingDay10 Fasting is extremely personal and intimate. You get to a place in God at which you can hear Him speak to you. You can’t separate Him from anything you do. You take Him to the spa, to the movies, and to Bible study. He’s in you and with you simultaneously.
God guides you through your fast. He isn’t rigid, critical, and condemning. The Holy Spirit leads you through it. Eat this. Don’t eat that. Drink now.
Pray now. Study now. Call her and give her a Word. Inbox her this scripture. Inbox him this meditation. The bond is inexplicable. The sacrifice, undeniably beneficial.
Some of you are 10 days in. Don’t give in to yout fleshly cravings now. The results will be incredible. The journey itself is already indescribably amazing. Dr.J.
2 Chronicles 20:1-3 (KJV) 1 It came to pass after this also, that the children of Moab, and the children of Ammon, and with them other beside the Ammonites, came against Jehoshaphat to battle. 2 Then there came some that told Jehoshaphat, saying, There cometh a great multitude against thee from beyond the sea on this side Syria; and, behold, they be in Hazazontamar, which is Engedi. 3 And Jehoshaphat feared, and set himself to seek the Lord, and proclaimed a fast throughout all Judah.
I don’t know whether you have people coming against you on the job or in your family or circle of friends. It could be the enemy’s use of your finances, health, relationships, or children coming against you. It may even be your own thoughts you’re battling with. Whatever it is, you feel like it is a “great multitude against thee.” The impact from the attacks are so overwhelming and powerful in the flesh that you are literally afraid. You don’t know what to do or how you will survive the impact from these attacks. But then the Holy Spirit says to you, “Fast.”
You proclaim a fast but not just you alone. You solicit your entire family to fast with you because you need a supernatural breakthrough to survive these attacks. You, your spouse, your children, and other God-fearing believers in your family join in on this fast with you. You, like Jehoshaphat have assembled the entire family together in prayer and petition. And then, God answers.
He may give you inner peace as your breakthrough. He may bless you financially as your breakthrough. He may promote you as your breakthrough. He may literally defeat the “great multitude against thee.” He may do all those things and more. We don’t know how God in His sovereignty will respond to our fasts. We do know that God is a God of breakthrough. We do know that His Word will not return void. We do know that we don’t have to move. All we have to do is be still and God will fight for us.
Keep fasting. Keep being obedient. Keep the faith. Take God at His Word. Dr.J.
You have to get in line for your entire bloodline to change. You keep waiting on change to take place in your family, but you ARE the change. You’ve felt this longing and strong desire for something better and something more. God placed that desire in you to get in line.
“In line for what?”
You must get in line in order to go to the next spiritual level, which brings greater spiritual blessings. The way the end times are set up, if YOU don’t get in line, your entire bloodline’s eternal lives are at stake. It doesn’t matter if you are the youngest, you are the chosen one.
You are the one God chose to prepare your family for the spiritual battles ahead. Do they read the Word daily? Do you? Do they study God’s Word? Do you? Are they living a life worthy of the calling of Christ Jesus? Are you? Are they saying, “God knows my heart” and continuing to live in sin? Are you? Are they straddling the fence between the world and the kingdom of God? Are you? Are they suffering from demonic oppression and generational curses that need to be renounced? Are you? It’s time to let God and the Holy Spirit through Jesus Christ get these things in line now. Some of us mothers are focusing so much on a man and our children aren’t in line for salvation. Some fathers are narcissistic and concerned with being bachelor or player of the year and your children don’t know Christ (they know OF Christ). It’s time to get in line now.
You are the one God chose to make sure your entire family is saved. But it won’t be enough for them to just confess it with their mouths. They have to live out their belief in every area of their lives.
When the enemy tries you and your family with the most severe, scary, and deadly attacks, will your bloodline fold and give in to Satan or go to their death for Christ? Will you fold or die for Christ? This is where we are now. This is how serious it is. Are YOU in line so your entire bloodline can be in line? God chose YOU. The time is now. Dr.J.
Revelation 2:10 KJV 10 Fear none of those things which thou shalt suffer: behold, the devil shall cast some of you into prison, that ye may be tried; and ye shall have tribulation ten days: be thou faithful unto death, and I will give thee a crown of life.
