Single Ladies, Are You Ready For This Responsibility in Marriage?- Part 2 (Quiet Spirit)| Blog| @intercession4ag @trackstarz

Don’t be concerned about the outward beauty of fancy hairstyles, expensive jewelry, or beautiful clothes. You should clothe yourselves instead with the beauty that comes from within, the unfading beauty of a gentle and quiet spirit, which is so precious to God. – 1 Peter 3:3-4 (NLT)
In other words…


​A quiet spirit is a disposition of peace, rest, and confidence in our husband’s ability to lead us. Just like the peace and rest in our ability for Christ to lead us through his Spirit along with his word.

To not trust our husband is to insult his ability and character. Just like to not trust God, and rest in what he says insults the very nature of who God is. This is a huge insult to a man.

With this understanding, I am more thankful for the many trials and tribulations that the Lord has allowed me to go through to increase my trust in Him. Truly, enduring through the trials of life is also a huge part of preparation for marriage, for the single woman of God. Walking through the trials of life with God teaches her how to trust Him on another level.

This is the type of a woman that when her husband loses his job; she will tell him it will be okay, and she still trusts in him. This is the type of a woman that a real man of God needs by his side.
