You are most welcome to the concluding part of this teaching. In this series, I have been able to show you how you, as a woman, can make your home a paradise while on earth, in order to have a fulfilled life that God has reserved for you.
Wisdom is defined as knowing what to do, and not just doing it, but doing it at the right time. In continuation with the last edition, it is so unfortunate that most of the problems being encountered in the homes, today, are directly the product of lack of wisdom. That’s why God’s Word says: If any of you lack wisdom, let him ask of God, that giveth to all men liberally, and upbraideth not; and it shall be given him (James 1:5).
Wisdom is the maker of homes. It is, in fact, the master maker’s secret. Once a home is founded on wisdom, the devil cannot pull it down. But even when the devil is a non-issue in a home, it can still be brought down by foolish hands. God’s Word says: Every wise woman buildeth her house: but the foolish plucketh it down with her hands (Proverbs 14:1).
Wisdom is more potent than prayer or fasting, because it is laying hold on, and trading with the Word of God. As a woman, who hopes for the best in making her home a fulfilling paradise to be, must consciously see to it that she walks in wisdom. She needs to constantly rely on God for wisdom in handling the day-to-day affairs of the home. An act of foolishness on the part of either the man or the woman may affect the stability of the home.
As a home maker, wisdom tells you when to talk and when to keep quiet, what to say and the right time to say it, where to go and at what time, etc. Do you know it is possible to say the right thing but at the wrong time, thereby causing instability in your home? The Bible says: Through wisdom is a house builded; and by understanding it is established (Proverbs 24:3).
For your home to be made the envy of other homes, you need wisdom. This wisdom comes from God, and whenever you need it, you can ask Him for it. Whenever you are faced with a situation that requires wisdom in your home, just pray a simple prayer, asking God to give you wisdom to handle the situation, and it shall be given to you. Wisdom builds and foolishness destroys.
In conclusion, although it is your responsibility, as a woman, to make your home a success, but the ultimate home maker is God. Hebrews 3:4 says: For every house is builded by some man; but he that built all things is God. Trying to build your family outside Him, therefore will give you no success at all.
God, Himself is the Author and Creator of marriage and family. He was practically involved in instituting it, (Genesis 2:18, 21-22). He personally took His time in fashioning the woman and delivering her to her husband.
Home making is not the idea of any man, a cultural or traditional affair. It is God’s idea. Therefore, to enjoy God’s best in your family, you must make Him the centre of your home. You must be ready to give Him priority place, recognizing Him as the foundation for a successful marriage.
Until you are born again, you cannot effectively walk in wisdom to make your home an outstanding one, among others. You get born again by confessing your sins and accepting Jesus as your Lord and Saviour. If you are set for this, please say this prayer: “Dear Lord Jesus, I come to You today as a sinner. Forgive me my sins. I believe You died and rose on the third day for my sins. I accept You as my Lord and Saviour. Make me a child of God today. Thank You for accepting me into Your Kingdom.”
