Prov. 31:10 An excellent wife who can find?
She is far more precious than jewels. (ESV)
I”ve been thinking and thinking about this woman spoken of in Proverbs and if there is one person who actually can’t speak of her it’s me. I have read the verses singing her praises over and over and the more I read it, the more I realise that I will probably never even come clOse to the woman she was.
What made her so excellent? Where did she get the energy to do everything that she did!? She had a husband who was well known and highly respected, she had children, she was a business woman, she got up before dawn and went to bed only long after her family had gone to bed.
I don’t know about you, but by the time I am done with dinner I am exausted!
This woman was also well known and highly respected due to the fact that she honoured her husband in everything, her children were well educated and she showed them the path of righteousness to God.
I believe that she knew something that very few people realised in that time. She knew that the Holy Spirit was within her to strengthen her and energise her to do all that she had to do. You see, God sent His Spirit to us for a few reasons,
1. As a guide in times of worry.
2. As a comforter in times of need.
3. As helper.
4. As advocate.
The list goes on and on, but we as women of God need to realise our worth and our authority in Christ our Lord and saviour. We need to be aware of the Spirit’s role in our lives and become aware of God’s presence everyday. As soon as we become aware of those two things we can accomplish ANYTHING!
My prayer for every woman reading this post is that you will see yourself through the eyes of God and that you will be strengthened and energised through His Spirit. Amen.
