Wow! Can you all believe that we are almost to the end of this series? So far, we have discussed love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, and gentleness in our marriages. If you've made it this far, thanks for sticking with me! Today, we are going to discuss faithfulness.
On our wedding day, when we say our vows, one of the things we promise to our husband is to be faithful to them. In this day in time, technology has made it so easy for us to communicate with others. We have facebook, twitter, texting, etc., and while there is nothing wrong with these things, we do need to keep our guard up as this could be possibly the eaisest place for the enemey to creep in. I would encourage you to choose your facebook wisely, and most definitely not accept requests from past boyfriends. You may think to yourself, "But that was years ago, I don't have feelings for them anymore. I can handle it." As I said, this can be one of the sneakiest ways for Satan to deceive us and open the door of temptation.
Besides being faithful to our spouse in this matter, we can also show them faithfulness in other ways. One of the things that first attracted me to Jeff is that he was (and still is) a man of his word. If he said he was going to be there, he was there. Can your husband trust that if you say you are going to do something, that you actually follow through with it? If your husband cannot trust you, then I would strongly encourage you to show him that you can be trusted. Proverbs 31:11 says, "Her husband has full confidence in her and lacks nothing of value." I want to be a wife whom Jeff can fully trust at all times, and a woman who lacks nothing valuable.
The book of Proverbs also tells us in chapter 3, verse 3, "Let love and faithfulness never leave you; bind them around your neck, write them on the tablet of your heart." Will you join me today in determining here and now that you will be a woman of faitfulness? May we all write this promise on the tablet of our heart, and demonstrate our faithfulness to our husband daily.
Dear Precious Father, I come to you now and ask that you continue to transform me into a wife whom Jeff has full confidence in. Please let our marriage be filled with faithfulness and let nothing hinder us. Father, I know that in your perfect faithfulness you have done wonderful things, and will continue to do so. Thank you for all of your rich blessings. Amen.
