Step 2: Arm yourself!
You are not going to change overnight. No matter how many lists you try to make. Or even how organized your Home Binder is, you will not become the house wife you want to become or a Proverbs 31 woman until you realize only HE can change you! And you must start at the beginning! Arm yourself with scripture! Proverbs is full of wisdom. That’s exactly why God put it there. I feel he gave us 31 chapters that way every day of the month we would be armed. Scripture we could jump right into! No matter what day you pick up on this study start with today’s date(not the blog date).
Day 2: Read the Proverbs for Today’s Date
In case you never noticed, there are 31 chapters in Proverbs. Therefore, every day of every month you have a chapter to read. Arm yourself with this wisdom. Don’t think about chores, don’t think about errands. That stuff will come later. ONLY worry yourself with your chapter for today. After you read your chapter, the chores will come a little bit easier. Don’t forget to pray on what you read. Ask God to apply it to your life. Also pray for God to continue to make you a new woman.
1 A wise son heeds his father’s instruction,
But a scoffer does not listen to rebuke.
2 A man shall eat well by the fruit of his mouth,
But the soul of the unfaithful feeds on violence.
3 He who guards his mouth preserves his life,
But he who opens wide his lips shall have destruction.
4 The soul of a lazy man desires, and has nothing;
But the soul of the diligent shall be made rich.
5 A righteous man hates lying,
But a wicked man is loathsome and comes to shame.
6 Righteousness guards him whose way is blameless,
But wickedness overthrows the sinner.
7 There is one who makes himself rich, yet has nothing;
And one who makes himself poor, yet has great riches.
8 The ransom of a man’s life is his riches,
But the poor does not hear rebuke.
9 The light of the righteous rejoices,
But the lamp of the wicked will be put out.
10 By pride comes nothing but strife,
But with the well-advised is wisdom.
11 Wealth gained by dishonesty will be diminished,
But he who gathers by labor will increase.
12 Hope deferred makes the heart sick,
But when the desire comes, it is a tree of life.
13 He who despises the word will be destroyed,
But he who fears the commandment will be rewarded.
14 The law of the wise is a fountain of life,
To turn one away from the snares of death.
15 Good understanding gains favor,
But the way of the unfaithful is hard.
16 Every prudent man acts with knowledge,
But a fool lays open his folly.
17 A wicked messenger falls into trouble,
But a faithful ambassador brings health.
18 Poverty and shame will come to him who disdains correction,
But he who regards a rebuke will be honored.
19 A desire accomplished is sweet to the soul,
But it is an abomination to fools to depart from evil.
20 He who walks with wise men will be wise,
But the companion of fools will be destroyed.
21 Evil pursues sinners,
But to the righteous, good shall be repaid.
22 A good man leaves an inheritance to his children’s children,
But the wealth of the sinner is stored up for the righteous.
23 Much food is in the fallow ground of the poor,
And for lack of justice there is waste.[a]
24 He who spares his rod hates his son,
But he who loves him disciplines him promptly.
25 The righteous eats to the satisfying of his soul,
But the stomach of the wicked shall be in want.
