“By wisdom a house is built, and by understanding it is established” Proverbs 24:3, ESV.
“Every wise woman builds her house, but a foolish woman tears it down with her own hands” Proverbs 14:1
My sister, I don’t want you to be the woman that destroys everything valuable because you don’t know how to control your emotions, control your tongue, control your thoughts or control yourself. I don’t want you to be the one holding the broken pieces of your life because of foolish mistakes you’ve made. God is making you into a wise woman. He is showing you His ways of doing things, His ways of responding to things, His ways of viewing and interpreting situations. He is increasing you more and more in His wisdom and grace.
This means you are having to hand over your own wisdom, and receive His. This means how God feels about you and your situation is beginning to matter more to you than how you feel and what you think. The fear of the Lord is the beginning of wisdom, my sister, and God is teaching you deeper truths about fearing, honoring and reverencing Him in ways you’ve never known (see Proverbs 9:10). The wisdom you walk in is about to be off the charts!
Say out loud from your heart, “Lord, make me wise. Make me wise. Make me a wise woman. Make me resourceful, effective, efficient, and self-controlled. Grow me up in your wisdom and grace. I’m tired of making the same mistakes. Please forgive me, and show me Lord your ways of doing things. Make me a wise woman that honors you in every area of my life. In Jesus’ name, Amen.”
