1 Peter 3:7=Honor; you give it weight.
Advice for women; Pursuing godliness builds a lasting relationship. Build God into your relationships and walk.
Give the W questions over to God! He is concerned with the details.
1.) W Submit. Attitude of the heart. It is not just an outward action or compliance.
When we submit, surrender to God, His power is able to fully operate in our lives.
There is freedom in submission.
1.) M Honor. How are they to do this? Fear holds women back. Honor her physically and emotionally!! It is ok. Connect with her. Look her in the eye.
2.) Developing an inner beauty that will last forever. 1 Peter 3:3-4. At some point you will have to take off your make-up! ;0) the men need to affirm your wife's inner and outer beauty! Inner beauty will far outweigh your outward beauty! Proverbs 31:30.
Be the kind of person that Attracts who you want to be. 1 Samuel 16:6-7. Psalm 37:4.
This beauty is so precious to God.
2.) M. Be a one-woman man. It is harder than it ever has been. Sex has become common in our world!! View her as God's daughter.
Fight the sexual sin! Live as a one woman man! It is tough! Live with that honor!
3.) W. Rest in God. You asks things like, why is it so hard? What is wrong with me? Will I be rejected by my past? Etc. There are so many questions. A godly woman knows where to run to. Our first step is towards God. I am restless until I rest in you.
God sees the whole picture of your life. We see such a glimpse. We need to be content. Don't miss out what God has for you in this time. See this season as God sees it.
Discontentment robs you from God's best...remove what is feeding your discontentment and your anxiety. Remove the things that limit your pursuit of holiness. Don't entertain these traps. Remove them.
Remain in contentment. Find a mentor or or friend to walk this path.
It may feel like abandonment at times. God is close, so close.
Completely pursue God. He doesn't let you down.
3.) Honor her above yourself. We are all selfish!! Honor others above yourself. Philippians 2:3-4...
What happens when we don't honor God? Your prayers will be hindered...
