The woman felt the full sting and pain of what she had done.
Solomon did not inflict the pain upon her; it was the “watchmen,” the faithful guardians of God’s people. If your spouse wrongs you, give God some time to work in your mate’s heart. Let God have an opportunity to deal with the conscience of your spouse. You are not to play the role of in your spouse’s life.
It's hard to hear the voice of the Lord when someone is continually nagging at you. Instead, we should keep quiet and let God work. It’s amazing how God moves into a person’s life. Truly His ways are higher than man’s ways, and His methods are not only very creative but extremely effective!
If nagging has broken into your relationship, how do you feel about that? Nagging surely won’t help your relationship. Let the Holy Spirit work.
