You Can Be A Happy Woman   Leave a comment

On May 22, 2015, a woman Minister of God referred to men as containers bought by a woman whose contents are not known at the time of purchase. On arrival at home, opening of the containers reaveal the true contents. She said some women found beverages in their containers. Some women found sand in theirs; while many women found granite. Discoveries of women after marriage differ in respect of the true contents of their men.

This is true.

Are you surprised? I don’t know if you will agree with me that there is no one formula for marrriage. What do I mean? Each marriage has what will make it work. Thank God, the Scriptures has the formulae for ALL MARRRIAGES as revealed by the Holy Spirit. For a marriage to be successful calls for hard work.

You must work hard to make your marrriage a success.

Do you believe that each content of every container has its use and value? Do you agree that each has its chains of benefits? To derive any benefit from the contents of a container calls for diligence.

For instance, from the sister’s analogy, if you find beverages in your container, you need to take certain steps to derive maximum benefits from it. You need to prepare it before taking it. At this point, I don’t want to burden you with the steps you will take but think for a few minutes on “If I receive a tin of beverages, how do I take it? What steps will I take?”.

Those who find lemon in their containers do not need to go about complaining to whoever care to listen about their findings. They need to sit down and think deeply on how to make the best use of it. Any woman who found lemon in her containers can easily make lemonade out of them. She can enjoy this with others.

The functions of beverages is entirely different from that of lemon. Yet, both are of value to their owners. Do you understand this?

That is why “A happy woman is not the one who married the best man, it is the woman who makes the best of the one she married.” is a supporter of what the woman Minister said as quoted earlier.

Do you know how you can make the best out of your man? There is a key disclosed in Proverbs 14:1?
“The wise woman builds her house,
But the foolish pulls it down with her hands.”
You need wisdom to make the best use of the contents of your man. WISDOM! It is the principal thing.

Relying on force, murmuring, complaining, strong attacks, craftiness and other flesh based devices cannot be of any positive help to you but wisdom.

How do you acquire the required wisdom to handle your man? James 1:5 teaches that, “If any of you lacks wisdom, let him ask God who gives to all liberally and without reproach, and it will be given to him.”

Do you want to be happy in your home? Searching again for “an ideal man” is not the next line of action but asking God for the wisdom to turn your man to the “Ideal Man” you desire. Who knows? Your getting married to your man may be the beginning of your ministry or it may be your major ministry for which you will receive fron the Lord,
“Well done, good and faithful servant; …enter into the joy of your Lord.”
Stay blessed abduction rapturable because the Lord is coming.

Weapons Of Peace Retention Employed By A Man.   Leave a comment

WEAPON OF PEACE RETENTION EMPLOYED BY A MAN
There are lots of lessons to learn from the life of father Abraham who is widely called ‘the Father of Faith’.The man was always with his with.The Bible records this about him in Genesis 13:1-2
‘Then Abraham went up from Egypt,
Abraham was very rich in livestock,
siluer,and in gold.’
This shows clearly that it is possible to be rich in material things and still retain peace in the home.Father Abram who later became Abraham remains an good example for every man to follow.
LOVE
To a discerning heart,Ahraham,(Abram if you like),was a man of great love.He loved his wife without reservations.He was ever ready to do anything (allowed by God) to please his wife.
He was ever prepared to make her happy and give her joy.He easily yielded to every desire of his wife,eve when it is contrary to his will.
Let us confirm this in Genesis16:2-3,
‘So Sarai said to Abraham,”See now,the Lord has restrained
me from bearing children.
Please,go in to my maid;perhaps,I shall obtain
children by her.” And Abraham heeded the voice of Sarai.
Then Sarai,Abraham’s wife,took Hagar,her maid,
the Egyptian,and gave her to her husband Abraham,
to be his wife,…’
Later,when Sarai said to the same man,her husband to
‘Cast out this bondwoman and her son; for the son
of this bondwoman shall not be heir with my son,
namely with Isaac.’Genesis 21:10
Although the request was displeasing to Abraham,the woman’s request,this time enjoyed divine support;and Abram again yielded to the woman’s request again.
This is also an evidence of his love for his wife,Sarai,and his son,Ishmael.
KNOWLEDGE
Father Abraham was a man of great knowledge.He knew his God and was obedient to Him.You can read how the man was instructed by God to depart to an unknown promised land in Genesis 12:1-4.
Do you know that it did not end there? The rich man,Abraham,had knowledge of all that he had.He knew the value of all his belongings.It is recorded in Genesis 12:11 that
‘And it came to pass,when he (Abram) was close to entering Egypt,
that he said to Sarai his wife,”Indeed
I know that you are a woman of beautiful countenance.” ‘
Father Abraham was not ignorant of his wife’s beauty.He had the knowledge of his wife’s beauty.He appreciated it.He knew that any man would like to have a woman of Sarai’s beauty as wife.
Not only that,he had the knoledge of how people who do not fear God behave.He knew what they could do. He made this known when Abimelech took Sarai as his wife in Genesis chapter twenty.
UNDERSTANDING
Father Abram,understood what evil people who do not fear God can do to him because of his beautiful wife,Genesis12:12 reads,
‘Therefore it will happen,when the Egyptians see you,
that they will say,
“This is his wife”,and they will
kill me,but they will let you live.’
That is a man’s understanding at play.He understood what evil people can do.He saw with his inner eye what could happen before it happened.Funny (or sad ?) enough,it happened exactly the way he had envisaged it.
‘So it was,when Abram came into Egypt,that the
Egyptians saw the woman,that she was very beautiful.
The princes of Pharaoh also saw her and commended
her to Pharaoh.And the woman was taken to Pharaoh’s house.’ Genesis12:14-15
Can you see the important role played by understanding? Do you see any need for you to ask for understanding from God? If father Abram needed and used it,you can not but need and use it.
Do you know that the same ‘method’ was used when the couple sojourned in Gerar.
It was there that Abram made known his understanding to king Abimelech who queried him for telling him(the king) that Sarai was his(Abram’s) sister:he told him(the king),
‘Because I thought surely the fear of God is
not in this place;and they will kill me on account
of my wife.’ Genesis20:11
Can you see that it was his understanding the way of life of evil people helped him to survive? It will surely help you too,in all that you will have,have understanding!
WISDOM
The friend of God,Abram,employed wisdom-sound wisdom,divine wisdom. He knew his God very well that He is a God that can protect him and all that were his. He did not forget God’s promise,
‘I will bless those who bless you,
And I will curse him who curses
you;’ Genesis 12:3a-b
He knew that God will never fail to fulfill His promise,so he left everything in His hand.
Not only this,with his understanding of the way the evi5 people do things,he must take steps to cage them. He the applied wisdom. He made a provision in advance:
‘Please say you are my sister,that it
may be well with me for your sake,and
that I may live because of you.’Genesis12:12
The sound wisdom worked perfectly well. It was well with Abram for the sake of Sarai and he lived because of her.
Genesis 12:16 discloses,
‘He(Pharaoh) treated Abram well for her(Sarai’s) sake.
He had sheep,oxen,male donkeys,male and female servants,
female donkeys and camels.’
To be concluded,bear with me.

Thank God who gave The Holy Bible to mankind as a Living Manual. It has the best treasures. Whatever happens to anybody today has a precedence. Others have experienced similar things in the past and the records are there for us to learn lessons.
The four weapons to retain Peace in the home discussed earlier in this blogsite were employed by a woman called Abigail, the wife of Nabal. The man was a rich businessman. The sad thing on record about him is “…but the man was harsh and evil in his doings”. (I Samuel 25:3e). “For he is such a scoundrel that one cannot speak to him.” verse 17e.
LOVE
As “harsh and evil” as the man was in his doings, Abigail cleared to him in love. The main’s business was flourishing. The home was in peace. Things were going on normally in the home. No record of a time when the woman and her husband engaged in hot debate. Please, do not have the wrong but common motion that they did this in secret because the woman was good in handling difficult situations. She loved her husband in the real sense of the word. The harsh and evil man must have wronged her but her “Love covers the multitude of Sins” of the man.
KNOWLEDGE
The woman was a knowledgeable one. She was not ignorant of the kind of man she married for life, a harsh and evil man! Abigail did not dispute it with a servant who described Naba as “…a scoundrel that one cannot speak to…”. She did not accuse him of insurbordination or such. like. She knew the man, Nabal, was rightly described. To ward off evil determined against her household by David, Abigail further displayed her knowledge of the man she married when she said, “Please, let not my lord regard this scoundrel
Nabal. For as his name is, so is he, Nabal is with him! “I Samuel 25:25a-c.
Trust Abigail, “she watches over the ways of her household,
And does not eat the of idleness.” Proverbs 31:27.
Not only this, She had the knowledge of the Lord God of Israel. This Fear of the Lord. She was aware of the truth that
“Whoever rewards evil for good,
Evil will not depart from his house.”
She was told of the good David and his men did for Nabal and his business and how Nabal rewarded them with evil. She took positive steps to reverse the situation.
UNDERSTANDING
I Samuel 25:3 records this about the couples
“The name of the man was Nabal, and
the name of his wife Abigail. And she was a
woman of good understanding and beautiful
appearance; but the man was harsh and evil
in his doings. He was of the house of Caleb.”
Abigail understood everything about Nabal. She understood the ways and doings of a foolishman. She must have come across the book of Proverbs in full or in part. She had a good understanding of how to love and live without contention with a foolish man. She understood that a fool speaks from his foolishness. A fool should not be taken serious.
Do you know what? Abigail knew that David was fighting the battle of the Lord and evil was not found in him. She understood that David was pursued and his life sought. She understood that though David was in troubles presently, “…the Lord will certainly make for my lord (David) an enduring house,”. This came to pass. I Sam 25:28-30.
WISDOM
Abigail applied wisdom to retain Peace in her home. When she received the report of the evid that David determined against Nabal and his household, she did not raise an alarm. She maintained her composure but acted in haste. She did not go to Nabal to scold him. She did not engage in nagging him.she did not invite her friends for gossiping or consultation on what to do. She did not go Nabal’s friends or family members to report his evil doings. Instead she looked inward. She looked within herseld. I think she must have liased with the Lord in prayer to know the right thing to do. She did not set her home on fire in thoughts, words or deeds.
After warding off evil determined against her household, the Holy Bible records the steps of wisdom taken by Abigail,
“Now Abigail went to Nabal, and there he was,
holding a feast in his house, like the feast of a king.
And Nabal’s heart was merry within him, for he was
very drunk, therefore she told him nothing, little or much,
until morning light. So it was, in the morning, when the
wine had gone from Nabal, and his wife had told him
these things, that his heart died within him, and he
became like a stone. “I Samuel 25:36-37.
Can you see the effectiveness and efficiency of wisdom at play? If Abigail could attain this feat, you, as a woman, can do the same. The four weapons worked, are working and will work forever for those who employ them. Is your husband as harsh and evil as Nabal? You can deal will him as Abigail dealt with Nabal using these weapons.
Let the whole world see you putting these weapons into action.Please,employ them.It will work for you.
