The conversation amongst young sisters on the above topic is not just long overdue but one to be considered critical. Well we may say time has changed most sisters are no more shy of stepping in the office of the Pastor’s wife. The ball doesn’t just stop at the office of the pastor’s wife. So today I will take you on a quick ride on the ‘Calling of a Pastor’s Wife’ what you need to know and do.
To be a pastor’s wife is a divine call. A pastor’s wife is a calling because, it’s not every woman that has the capacity to be a pastor’s wife. It’s not every woman that can be able to endure the things that the pastor’s wives endure. It’s not every woman that is able to tolerate what they tolerate.
Not every pastor’s wife is called into the 5-fold ministry, invariably it is called the ministry of helps.
Knowing you’re called is one thing and maximizing your call is another thing.
HOW TO MAXIMIZE YOUR CALLING AS A PASTOR’S WIFE.
1. You must have a personal relationship with God. John 3:27.
It takes you knowing God intimately to be able to maximize your calling, because your husband’s personal relationship with God will not be able to carry both of you.
2. Understand that you’re called.
You have to know first and foremost that you’re called, because the calling is not a title, the calling is an assignment, a function.
3.You have to get yourself into deep study.
2 Tim 2:15, Col 3:16.
When you study more you become outstanding in life and you will not be ashamed when opportunities call. Don’t be an empty vessel, be a loaded pastor’s wife.
4. You must have an effective prayer life. Luke 18:1.
When you don’t pray,you become a prey in the hand of the enemy the devil. When the devil attacks your husband and misses him, you (the pastor’s wife) becomes the next target. Let the devil find you praying when he attacks.
5.Look out for people that will rob off on you. E.g. Mentors, Spiritual leaders etc.
Don’t be a woman alone, connect and network with people that have gone ahead of you. Be humble enough to learn from them and become wiser.
Remain lifted and have a beautiful weekend!
