Becoming Homemakers: Sneak Peek Into The TWTW Bible Study Collection Vol. 2
Becoming Home makers
God has given us women so many abilities that men don’t have. As women, we have been graced with uniqueness, multi-tasking skills, intuition, capabilities, a womb, nurturing abilities, kindness, compassion, and love. As women, there are certain things we need to know about ourselves before becoming a wife and a mother:
· Who we are in Christ.
· Our value as God values us.
· Know our worth in Christ and see ourselves the way God sees us.
· Know the gifts and talents God has embedded in us.
Knowledge of these help us live the lives God wants us to, and also to inculcate the same into our children. It is in studying God’s Word that we begin to know who we really are. Without this, we are already setting ourselves up for a flop in marriage because we then cannot be all that God wants us to be.
Without studying the Word, how do we expect to have a wonderful relationship with God and those around us? How do we want to support our husbands/future husbands the way God wants us to? How do we expect to train our children the way God wants us to?
“Now Deborah, a prophetess, the wife of Lapidoth, judged Israel at that time.” – Judges 4:4, AMP.
Deborah was a woman who knew who she was and was great at it. When we figure out our identity in Christ, purpose and the rest, then are we truly ready to step out to the next stage of being a wife, mother and a homemaker. As Late Myles Munroe said, we have to be single and know who we are, before getting married.
The Woman as a Homemaker
“To be discreet, chaste, home-makers, good, obedient to their own husbands, that the word of God may not be blasphemed.” -Titus 2:5, NKJV.
We are gradually being trained to be homemakers in our respective homes – how to be hospitable to guests, how to take care of the home (cleaning, cooking, going to the market), basically being able to keep the home.
“Every wise woman builds her house, but the foolish one tears it down with her own hands.” – Proverbs 14:1, AMP.
“She looks well to the ways of her household and does not eat the bread of idleness.” – Proverbs 31:27, ESV
As homemakers, we must learn to work willingly and cheerfully. For example, there are times we wouldn’t want to clean the house or go to the market or wash, or be hospitable as required, but these are really things that need to be done. So we intentionally learn to do them.
When we become mothers, the game changes and we have more housework to do. It can be strenuous, and may be frustrating, but we can’t get up and leave everything. That’s why we train, we learn.
To be good homemakers, we need to plan and have a list of things we need to do and prioritize right. Most importantly, don’t take God away from the top of the list. In truth, only God can help us be the right homemakers as He wants us to be. So keep Him involved.
