So, the famous proverbs 31, which talks about how wonderful a woman is, basically describing the perfect wife for any man. I am certain we, as in all women, wife’s, would love to be called a proverbs 31 wife. Imagine how wonderful that will look on you and most especially feel -, knowing you are such an amazing woman.
Before anything, I want to say, we can all be the amazing proverbs 31 woman. The same way you and I are fit for the service of the Kingdom of God. A lot of the times, we are too quick to put ourselves down, because of our past. How will you learn if you do not make mistakes? Yes is great to avoid making mistakes, but if you are not God, then I am sorry to say, we, including myself, will forever step on the toes, say the wrong thing, do the wrong, be known for something bad, whether you like it or not. I will advise you to stay fully focused on God. He is the only one who can save you from every negative thing, you can think of.
So what? If you did wrong in the past? Who and can throw the first stone, if they have not sinned? No one can and that is a Fact! Simply because no one is perfect period! You can be anything you want and anything God planned for you, even if you have had a bad past or backslide big time or little, whichever way you can be accepted into the Kingdom of God. You are therefore assured, of becoming a virtuous woman, if you want to, purely based on our father who is in heaven and always willing and ready to forgive us, if we ask truthfully.
I have been disgraced, ashamed, I have sinned, done things I knew were wrong, some was not intentional, others I had no idea, I even did them. Look at me, some will ask what right as she got to tell me about God and forgiveness, my right is my past, my sin, my wrongdoing, the naïve me who was just foolish, but thank God, he never let me go, always there even in the midst of my sins and endless wrongdoings. I now know and have tested the grace of God, the Mercy of God, the favour of God, the abundance of unconditional Love and more. such a wonderful father I have, and you also have. Attach yourself to him and you will never be disappointed.
God has favoured me with a lot, I wish to share my story with the world. assure you of your salvation, it is always ready, come boldly to God. Did I ever think I can be who I am today? I do not actually know but I knew God was still alive and he never left me alone, not for once. I accepted I did wrong and generally ask his forgiveness, I am here knowing fully that I have been clothed with grace and mercy. I am not taking for granted the love of God, no because it is the best and I need it more now than ever.
I believe I am in the process of becoming a full proverbs 31 wife, why full? Because no one other than God can be perfect. A proverbs 31 woman is the ultimate, though I am not there, I will not give up, because I know I can be who or whatever with the grace of God.
Charm can mislead and beauty soon fades.
The woman to be admired and praised
is the woman who lives in the Fear-of-God.
Proverbs 31:30 MSG
This is my aim, and this is what I am in the process of becoming. Oh, you thought, I want to be a perfect housewife or perfect wife for my husband? Parents? Family? Friends? Well, this is what I believe, if I generally have the fear of the LORD in me, I will become a virtuous woman. You can also become a virtuous woman.
“but a woman who fears the LORD is to be praised’’
The word ‘’but’’ gives as an indication of the importance of what follows. The list of the virtuous woman is indeed endless, but the most important, that you and I need to know is:
“but a woman who fears the LORD is to be praised”
Strive to desire, yearn, long, crave to be filled with the fear of God. That should be our goal.
Never give up, because God has not given up on you!
