Open Heaven Devotional 20 November 2021

Topic: Wise Wives Build Their Homes

MEMORISE: “Every wise woman buildeth her house: but the foolish plucketh it down with her hands.” – (Proverbs 14:1)

READ: 1 Peter 3:1-6 (KJV)

RCCG Open Heaven Today Devotional | MESSAGE:

Today’s devotional is mainly directed to ‘wives’, not just ‘women’. The reality is that not all women are wives. As many as are trusting the Lord for a glorious change of status, I pray that God will grant that good desire this season, in Jesus’ name. Wives – not mistresses or ‘bed-partners’, are divinely given the assignment of homebuilding. This is because neither a mistress nor a bed-partner has the divine grace to build a godly home. Beloved, it is wisdom that makes a woman a wife and according to Proverbs 9:10, the fear of God is the beginning of wisdom.

More importantly, Jesus is the Wisdom that transforms a woman to a godly wife and then a homebuilder. Sisters, when you allow Jesus into your life, you cease to be an ordinary woman; you become a virtuous and godly one. There is something we must take into cognisance in today’s Scripture reading, and that is the phrase “by the conversation of the wives”. ‘The wives’ here refers to God-fearing women who have been distinguished by their chaste conversation and general conduct, which is occasioned by the fear of the Lord, and not that of their husbands, per se. It is wisdom when a wife builds her home.

However, it is great foolishness for wives to pull down their homes by themselves. Sadly, many women today have pulled down their homes and are now roaming aimlessly on the ‘streets’ of life without any covering. They may pretend that all is well but the truth is that they are hurting and nursing regrets of their past actions internally. Some of them who are now considered ‘old wives’ or ‘ex-wives’ are on revenge missions – teaching younger wives to pull down their homes in order to have them join in roaming the ‘streets’ of life.

Sisters, beware of these deceivers. (1 Timothy 4:7) says: But refuse profane and old wives’ fables, and exercise thyself rather unto godliness. No matter your achievements, as a Christian wife, you must be submissive to your husband if you want peace, joy and progress in your home. I speak peace to whatever trouble is in your home. I speak glory to whatever reproach is in your family today, in Jesus’ name. Be wise; invite Jesus Christ into your home today.

PRAYER POINT: Lord, please give me Your wisdom so I can build my home in accordance with Your will today, in the mighty name of Jesus.



1. God give us Christian homes!
Homes where the Bible is loved and taught,
Homes where the Master’s will is sought,
Homes crowned with beauty Thy love hath wrought;
God give us Christian homes
God give us Christian homes!

2. God give us Christian homes!
Homes where the father is true and strong,
Homes that are free from the blight of wrong,
Homes that are joyous with love and song;
God give us Christian homes
God give us Christian homes!

3. God give us Christian homes!
Homes where the mother in queenly quest,
Strives to show others Thy way is best,
Homes where the Lord is an honoured guest.
God give us Christian homes;
God give us Christian homes!

4. God give us Christian homes!
Homes where the children are led to know
Christ in His beauty who loves them so,
Homes where the altar fire burn and glow
God give us Christian homes;
God give us Christian homes!
