A Rooftop Woman

Posted on Posted in devotions

“It is better to dwell in the corner of the housetop than to share a house with a disagreeing, quarrelsome, and scolding woman” Proverbs 25:24, Amplified.

Let’s pause and think about that for a moment.

The truth is, when we are slamming doors, holding silent treatments, throwing dishes, withholding sex, calling up all of our friends to vent about our spouses, this is rooftop behavior. When our spouses and loved ones would prefer to be on the rooftop than in the same house with us, that says something about us. It’s cold and uncomfortable on the roof. It’s unsafe up there. But that’s where people would rather be when they’re constantly being nagged, fought with, and scolded for every little thing. Come on my sisters! God didn’t create us to be that way!

God wants you to be the kind of woman that a man enjoys being around. To where he would rather be no where else than with you. How do we do that? We allow God to grow us up, and we let Him help us face the truth about ourselves so we can change.

Declare this from your heart today: “I will not behave like a childish rooftop woman. That’s not who I am. No matter how frustrated I get, God will help me control my tongue and control my emotions. No more acting like I have no sense. I am a woman of God. I respect myself too much to allow anyone or anything to get me out of God’s peace. In Jesus name!”

“But let it be the inward adorning and beauty of the hidden person of the heart, with the incorruptible and unfading charm of a gentle and peaceful spirit, which [is not anxious or wrought up, but] is very precious in the sight of God.” 1 Peter 3:4 (AMP)
