A Helping or Hurting Wife

Divider

I will make him a helper fit for him

Genesis 2:18


The Lord provided a helper for Adam so that he could accomplish even more with a partner than by himself. Eve was the perfect helper fit for Adam. Even though this world is far removed from the beauty and innocence of the Garden of Eden, wives are still called to be a helping partner for their husbands.

Many women marry and immediately begin to tear down the potential of their husbands with their hurtful words and/or actions, unmet expectations, and overall discontentment. This damage to their marriage stifles the purpose of God for the husband, wife, and children. She will find herself chasing after many dead ends and detours that lead only to more disappointment. This was never God’s intention for wives.

When a wife embraces God’s calling to help her husband, she is also helping herself. As she surrenders her will to God, the wife finds incredible purpose and fulfillment in her gifts and talents. Even if her husband is disobedient or living as an unbeliever, she will still be successful in her calling because God’s hand over her life can’t be hindered.

Being a helping or hurtful wife isn’t dependent on living with a good husband. Rather, it’s a choice of a godly woman whose focus is squarely on God’s goodness and not her husband’s limitations. The Lord equips this faithful and loving wife with everything she needs to help her husband and become a success in her own right.

Prayer

Dear Lord, I want to help my husband and not hurt him. I seek your power to rise above myself and become the wife you want me to be. Amen.

In His Service,
