Daily Guide Devotional For Today 24th March 2024 (Sunday)

TODAY’S TOPIC: HUSBAND, CELEBRATE YOUR WIFE

OPENING PRAYER: Dear Lord, grant me understanding and illumination as I ponder on your word in Jesus’ name.
SCRIPTURE: SONG OF SONGS 6:1-7:9

Question(s) for Reflection
• Q2: Is there any example for me to follow or not to follow?
• Q5: Is there any warning for me to heed?

Outline For Scripture Union Daily Guide 24 March 2024

Is there anything worthy of emulation in 6:1-3? Is she not blessed who has friends who identify with her at moments of despair? What a woman is this who is neither ignorant of the direction of her husband’s movement nor ever doubtful of her husband’s love (vs.2-3)! Godly women win their straying husbands by love that trusts and hopes (6:3, 11-12) with prayer and not by harsh treatment. This is equally true for godly men.

What is your understanding of 6:4-9? The man describes his beloved as perfect and unique! Indeed, from our readings of yesterday and today we see the beloved as having a blend of inner beauty and admirable appearance. People hardly appreciate the strength of their spouse until they become unfaithful or lose them. It is helpful to take account of your spouse’s beauty every time your heart is straying. You will realise there is none out there like yours (vs.8-9). When your spouse has touched your heart with inner beauty, it is important to make them know how much you appreciate them.

Practice/Word Application
And so: List three things you will do this week in appreciation of your wife.

• Any new insight or reinforcement of what you already know?

O BLESSÈD HOME WHERE MAN AND WIFE
1. O blessèd home where man and wife
Together lead a godly life
By deeds their faith confessing!
There many a happy day is spent,
There Jesus gladly will consent
To tarry with His blessing.

2. If they have given Him their heart,
The place of honor set apart
For Him each night and morrow,
Then He the storms of life will calm,
Will bring for every wound a balm,
And change to joy their sorrow.

3. And if their home be dark and drear,
The cruse be empty, hunger near,
All hope within them dying,
Let them despair not in distress;
Lo, Christ is there the bread to bless,
The fragments multiplying.

4. O Lord, we come before Thy face;
In every home bestow Thy grace
On children, father, mother,
Relieve their wants, their burdens ease,
Let them together dwell in peace
And love to one another.

Closing Prayer
Lord, help me heed the warning of 1 Peter 3:7 and to relate with my wife as a co-heir of God’s Kingdom.
Offer a prayer of faith in line with Genesis 28:13
“And, behold, the LORD stood above it, and said, I am the LORD God of Abraham thy father, and the God of Isaac: the land whereon thou liest, to thee will I give it, and to thy seed;”
