Choose to be His Cheerleader

Women have a way with persuasion.  They have used their charm deceptively since the beginning of time. Using their charm deceptively, they lured or tried to lure men into harm enticing them to turn from the ways of the Lord.  Eve gave to Adam forbidden fruit (Genesis 3), Potiphar's wife tried to seduce Joseph (Genesis 39), Michal despised and criticized David, she spoke of her displeasure in David's celebration and dancing before the Lord. (2 Samuel 6:16-23)  King Solomon's wives turned his heart after other gods. (1 Kings 11)

Instead of bringing harm to our husbands let us be his helper. (Genesis 2:18)  Let's bring them good, not harm, all our lives. (Proverbs 31:12)  Let us be influential in a way that brings him respect. (Proverbs 31:23)  Let us fear the Lord and words of wisdom flow from our lips. (Proverbs 31:26, 30)  Let us not be foolish and tear down our homes but instead be wise and build up our homes. (Proverbs 14:1)  Let us demonstrate unto our daughters and friends a woman who is united and one flesh with our husbands. (Ephesians 5:31)  Let us choose to be a woman who glorifies God and serves him through our role as a wife. 

I challenge you wives today to step out of your own love language and into your husbands.  Do something for him today that is unexpected of you.  Speak words of encouragement and trust then let your actions demonstrate it.  Build your husband up and encourage him to be all that he can be in the Lord.  Our husbands need a cheerleader and you're the best one for the job.  God has great plans for your husband why not help him to fulfill those great plans by being the helper he needs.
