A Wife’s Devotion

A wife’s devotion is key to fulfilling her calling as a help meet. If she is not devoted to her husband then her tasks will be more difficult because they’re merely a to do list, a ritual. When a wife is devoted to her husband, then the things she does in her home and life will blossom as she fulfills God’s calling for her life.

The devotion of a wife (or lack thereof) will be visible to those close to her and her husband.  She knows that her priority is being a wife and homemaker.

A Wife's Devotion

Some things that a devoted wife does are…

  • A devoted wife cares for her home and her husband before doing things for herself or things outside of her home.
  • A devoted wife also thinks of her husband and home prior to making any decisions.
  • A devoted wife seeks to honor and please her husband outside the home.
  • A devoted wife dresses modestly to honor her husband.
  • A devoted wife doesn’t seek to gain attention from other men.
  • A devoted wife knows her husband’s convictions and thoughts on matters of importance and keeps them in mind at all times.
  • A devoted wife speaks only good things of her husband to ¬†others.
  • A devoted wife prays for her husband’s protection, work and guidance.
  • A devoted wife knows her husband’s likes and dislikes and keep them in mind throughout her day and in decision making.
  • A devoted wife’s love for her husband grows and deepens as she keeps him in the right place of priority.

 

Devotion truly is a beautiful thing, but it does require a selflessness of great proportion. We must seek the Lord’s strength every day in order to die to ourselves because our human nature is selfish.

As wives we must strive to become the help meets we were created to be and being devoted to our husbands is an important part of our calling. May God draw our hearts, minds and wills together to become the devoted wives He created us to be.

  1. I popped over from Thought-Provoking Thursday. It’s always nice to read posts like this from younger women. I struggled so when I was younger, as my (ex) husband was and still is an unbeliever and an alcoholic. It’s very difficult to be devoted to someone who is not of the same mindset. That’s a whole different blog topic! Ultimately, the marriage ended, and I married a man 12 years ago who is a believer and thinks I’m adorable (hah!). It’s a joy to be devoted to a man who loves and honors you as his wife. Great post.

    • Yes, it is SO hard when your spouse is not a believer and abusive in some way. I’ve been there too and it was difficult to be devoted to him. How thankful I am that God has brought both you and I godly men to spend our lives with! Blessings Mary!

  2. This is beautiful, Misty. I especially love your opening paragraph. Many wives see their roles as routine and unsatisfying, but when we understand the idea of devotion to our Lord and to our husbands, we serve with love and are fulfilled. Thank you for this beautiful devotion. I’m pinning it now.

    • Yes, it is hard when we don’t see our marriage as a picture of Christ and the church. When we take our eyes off of ourselves and look to that, oh how different the view is! Blessings Heather!
