Today's Verse: Proverbs 18:22 (KJV)

Tuesday, June 22, 2021

Whoso findeth a wife findeth a good thing, and obtaineth favour of the LORD.
— Proverbs 18:22 (KJV)

Thoughts on Today's Verse...

Several great truths are taught us in the opening chapters of the Bible. First, we are made in God's image, both male and female. Second, we are made to be different (male and female). Third, we are made to bless each other and be complements of one another. Fourth, a husband and wife were made to leave their families of origin and build their lives together (Gen. 1:26-2:25). To find a spouse for life, one created by God in his image, is to find what is truly good and what God truly desires.

My Prayer...

Father, I thank you for your plan for my life. (for the married) I thank you for my spouse and ask for your help in blessing and fulfilling that person in every way. (for the widowed) I ask, dear Father, that you comfort my feelings of loss and grief, and that you know my thanks for this special person through whom you blessed my life. (for the single) I ask that you help me know the path for my life and use me to bless others in the way that I live with integrity and faithfulness. (for the divorced) I ask, dear Father, that you minister to my sense of loss and that you use me to serve you and bring you glory. In Jesus' name I pray. Amen.
