A trespasser you are not. Not in your home and not in your second family. Your presence is licensed by the state and counted carefully by the IRS. Legally, officially, and spiritually, whether you — or they — like it or not, you now belong to your second family.
Your official family membership was not given to you by them — and cannot be taken away by them, either. Though a Noble Second Wife may be sometimes treated as an “outsider”, the fact and reality of your INSIDE family status before God is absolute and unimpeachable.
Under God, a wife of noble character is ordained… and she is on holy assignment.
WOE to the one who interferes with God’s agenda. You belong because God says you belong. You need to grasp that fully and completely, so you can get on with God’s business. Fix your eyes on the road ahead. Look neither to the right nor to the left. Do not allow yourself to be distracted by foolish arguments and petty pretensions that set themselves up against the knowledge of God. Take captive every thought to make it obedient to Christ. (See 2 Corinthians 10:5).
Let no one toy with your confidence or commitment. Get busy with God’s agenda in your role as Noble Second Wife. Stay on mission. Steward your position wisely.
The favor of man is only a gift. An extra. The favor of God is essential. And that, dear one, you already have. Your rock-solid standing comes not from human approval, but from God alone. It is to Him you must look for your sense of belonging. It is to Him you will give account.
