Concerning your opinions

This old world will tell you to speak up, and don't let your man run all over you, and your voice counts, and on and on they will go, never telling you that a gentle, and QUIET spirit pleases God.

I Peter 3:4 tells us that God holds a quiet spirit in high regard, and it is of great worth to him.

Do you have a quiet spirit?

Do you have to try to have one?

Along with the new nature comes the quiet spirit (II Corinthians 5:17).

If you must try, then it will be YOUR effort that keeps you quiet, and how long does that last?

Not long.

Love for God includes obedience (John 14:21, and I John 5:3).

How long does your love for God last?

Not long if you are not obedient.

Love that does not last is not love, because the love that God gives never fails (I Corinthians 13:8).

The obedience required by God is also accomplished by God in those who are his (Romans 8:11).

They do not work at it, for their salvation is not OF them (Ephesians 2:10).

The obedience that God's child has is a gift to them— God does not allow his child to be tempted MORE THAN his child can bear. That is what I Corinthians 10:13 tells us to be true.

Do you believe that to be true?

Or do you like to talk?

And do you think that your opinions are worthy of your husband hearing?

Or do you believe that God really is all-powerful and can do to, and with, your husband, and his thoughts as he wishes, or do you think that you must help out the "all-powerful" God?

Your actions, and your words tell on you.

Listen carefully to what you think you must say.

Love keeps quiet when it comes to that husband of yours.

Love allows God to move as he wishes, and when he wishes, and love equals obedience.

Are you obedient?

Concerning your opinions.....are they God's?

Is your "faith" just lip-service?

Jesus warns against that (Matthew 15:8).

Do your lips move in prayer always (I Thessalonians 5:17), or in telling your husband how to live, what to do, and how to spend his free time, and money?

Do you teach other women about serving their husbands, and do you encourage them to be quiet, and to be the keepers of their homes (Titus 2:5), or do you tell them to stand up for themselves?

Do your lips move in gossip, or in continuous worship?

Is your heart forever grateful (I Thessalonians 5:18), or do you fuss?

It will not be both.

Cannot be both.

Good trees only produce good fruit (Matthew 7:17).

Hold your tongue up to God's standards, and see if you will stand in the end.

Workers of iniquity (those who spend energy on sin) will not (Matthew 7:21-23).

Matthew 24:13 tells us that only those who stand firm (unwavering) to the end will be saved.

Does that describe you?

If not, repent.
