A Balanced Woman Of God

How do women become balanced women of God in this unbalanced society we are presently living in?  There is only one way, you must become students of the Word.  The one thing I try to impress upon the women I mentor is the importance of knowing and living God's Word.

For some reason, it is so easy to remember to eat at least three meals a day, take a daily shower, watch some television, etc. but when it comes to spending time knowing God, there is no time.  This is like going out into the world naked.  Every day, you must put on the full armor of God.

Life is a spiritual battle.  Satan would love to destroy your marriage.  He would love to destroy your children.  He would love to destroy you.  If you are not in His Word daily, you will be influenced by the lies of society.

Put down that cheap novel.  Put down that cheap magazine.  Stop watching the cheap reality shows.  They only pollute your mind.  Become a serious student of the Word.  Read it daily.  Meditate upon it.  Pray the words of Scripture over your husband and your children.

This is the single most important thing you can do for your family.  As you study His Word, you become more like Jesus.  Your husband and your children will be drawn to Jesus.  How can you expect to raise children that walk in Truth if you are not spending time knowing Truth?

Don't blame your husband on not being a spiritual leader.  You and you alone are responsible for your spiritual growth.  Have Bibles laying open around your home.  Listen to sermons being preached by godly preachers.  Listen to praise music.  Read the Bible to your children.  Immerse yourself in Truth and not in this forsaken, godless world.

It is up to you women.  Do you want your husband and children to rise up and call you blessed at the end of your life or do you want a shattered marriage and children walking with the world?  Make reading God's Word and knowing Him a top priority in your life.  This is the single most important thing you can do to make a difference in your life.  Please don't drop the ball on this one.

The only way you will become a balanced woman of God is to know God deeply.

Let the word of Christ dwell in you richly in all wisdom;
 teaching and admonishing one another in 
psalms and hymns and spiritual songs, 
singing with grace in your hearts to the Lord.
Colossians 3:16
