God wants to make His daughters wise.

“By wisdom a house is built, and by understanding it is established” Proverbs 24:3, ESV.

One day in prayer I cried out to God, “Lord, make me wise!” I said, “I don’t want to be a foolish woman! I don’t want to be a foolish wife, a foolish mother, a foolish friend. Lord, I want to be wise!” I meant it with everything in me. I had seen in my personal life how true the Bible is when it says, “Every wise woman builds her house, but a foolish woman tears it down with her own hands” (see Proverbs 14:1). I didn’t want to be that woman that destroyed everything valuable because I didn’t know how to control my emotions, control my tongue, control my thoughts or control myself. I didn’t want to be the one holding the broken pieces of my life because of my foolish mistakes.

God wants to make His daughters wise.

He wants to show us His ways of doing things, His ways of responding to things, His ways of viewing things and interpreting situations. He wants to increase us more and more in wisdom.

Pause right now and say, “Lord, make me wise. Make me wise. Make me wise. I desperately want to be wise in every area of my life. Help me not be foolish. Make me effective and efficient, self-controlled and diligent. Grow me up God. I’m tired of making the same mistakes over and over again. Show me Lord your ways of doing things. I love you and I want more of you in my life. In Jesus’ name, Amen.”

Here’s a challenge for you: Read a chapter of Proverbs everyday for the next 31 days.

  1. Thank you. That is my prayer too. Lord make me more wise. I need your wisdom so much, with being efficient, and organized with self control and clear minded to make decisions..
    The devil prowls about looking for someone to devour. Help me to resist him with Jesus and he has to flee….I Love you Lord. I need your miracle healing powerβ™‘

  2. Praise the Lord, Thank you Jesus for this word. I ask and Thank God for wisdom every day, my Husband and I was just talking about how God gives me Wisdom. I always want God’s Widsom NOT mine. I will ask God to give me Wisdom in specific areas of my life. Thank you God and Thank you DOTK Family, In Jesus Name Amen πŸ’œ

  3. Good morning, Again thank you DOTK…..Iv’e being have some doubt with faith & waiting. Too see if is God gone show up & show out, We serve an amazing & awesome always on time God that will never leave you nor forsake you my my my Oh how I thank thee Lord you keep looking out for me….Yes I definitely want more of you and less of me I want all the wisdom and guidance and be more christ-like and less worldly…Amen

  4. thank you so much DOTK family I really need you to please please please pray for me I went back to my husband after infidelity on his part and although you can forgive someone it doesn’t mean you have to stay with them but this time I chose not to divorce because of the fact that this is my second marriage I’ve already been divorced once and I just don’t want to be divorced and not only that I do still love my husband but I’m questioning now if he loves me and going back to him after a mere two months of being apart for what he did is not the easiest thing to do it’s so much easier said than done but I don’t want to tear down my own house by being an unwise woman but I do need a lot of prayer because of the fact that as much as I’m trying to build this house this man is just acting like he doesn’t know what he did wrong and it just drives me more crazy at the fact that he could look at me and tell me I don’t know what I did wrong so not to fill you up with so much drama but just so that you can pray for this whole situation that God will turn this marriage around for his honor and glory and that I am a wise woman and I don’t tear my own house down PLEASE pray for me for my marriage my husband and I need a lot of prayer thank you so much

    1. DHR…….first off, may God bless you richly, my sister, for choosing to want to honor him! Secondly, know that I believe that the good Lord DIRECTED me STRAIGHT TO YOUR PRAYER REQUEST, in specific!!

      I am in the midst of dealing with a similar situation: my husband and I had an almost-homeless friend move a 5th wheel trailer onto our property. We believed that God wanted us to help this man (who, at the time, we thought was a Believer. Now, it is HIGHLY doubtful, altho’ HE thinks he is. Remember to “look at the fruit”, long-term).

      It’s felt like we invited a messenger of satan into our home, and now, after much chaos involving even having to call the police for protection, we are having trouble getting rid of him!

      I say all that to say this: Google “Narcissistic Personality Disorder”. I believe this is what my household is dealing with and what you wrote struck a chord in me for the same thing. You may come to believe that being around your husband is not at all in your best interest (there CAN be separation instead of divorce…), perhaps it may be dangerous even! Also Google a manipulation technique “Gaslighting”. I think it may sound familiar to you.

      I will pray for you, your protection and for your mental and emotional state. It has been VERY hard to accept that this person has used our Christian love and care AGAINST us. Indeed, the devil is using him to try and destroy us……..BUT, “Greater is He who is in US than he who is in the world!!!” (1 John 4:4)

      May Jesus keep you safe and sane.
      He’s ALREADY made you an”OVERCOMER”…….MAY PEACE BE WITH YOU!!!

  5. @DHR…….. wisdom is all that you need to build your home( marriage)

    I was in this kind of marriage so l know how you feel, when i say ” i was ”
    It does not mean that i’m no more there, still there but now a grown woman….

    I used to fight my husband because of infidelity…. my marriage almost break up, i once left my children(9yrs &6yrs then) but was asked to go back….
    the Holy Spirit taught “wives submit to your own husband as unto the Lord”….
    I was asked to check the meaning of each word in the dictionary including “to” “own” “as” “unto”….

    The Holy Spirit told me that my own duty is “to submit ” not “to fight”…… that i should see my submision as service unto the Lord….

    I checked this verse in different Bible versions….

    I studied this verse day in day out……

    I then prayed to God for wisdom on how to live with my husband despite his shortcomings….

    I asked God to help me forgive him in advance…….

    Istop looking at my husband and started looking unto God as the author and finisher of my faith….

    i got closed to my Bible, read books…..

    i made up my mind not to fight my husband but battle with the spirit of infidelity (i almost fell into it too but God delivered me)..

    today he is a change man….. though a little here and there but i strongly believed God will perfect all that concern me….

    my sister, the word of God is the wisdom you need….
    you are your husband’s helpmeet…. interceede for him…
    create an atmosphere of peace, joy,love and praise in your home and see God turn things around for your favour….

    i know it is not easy but i pray the God that saw me through my trying period should help you fulfill your purpose as a wise wife…..

    i love you but Jesus loved you more…. crave for more of His love, allow God do what He alone can do…. remain blessed… DOTK more grace for the now word…… Amen
