Wisdom From Proverbs: Chapter 31

Our journey comes to an end with the Proverbs 31 woman, a woman all women of God seek to be like. “Who can find a virtuous woman? for her price is far above rubies.” Verse 10 I’ve had a rough couple of days and the devil has really been beating me down. It seemed nothing I could do was good enough and that somehow turned into I’m not good enough in my mind. Today it all seemed to be just me like a mountain weighing on me, so much to do and not enough hours in the day to do it. Then I read verse 10 and it just spoke to my heart. Daughter, know your worth. I’m worth more than rubies, you are worth more than rubies! Our price is far above rubies y’all. *** smiles ***

I push myself really hard and I’m disappointed in myself when I don’t meet my own expectations or I don’t know something I “think” I should. I am disappointed in myself when I don’t meet others expectations, no matter how unrealistic they are. The devil uses all of that to attack my self worth. Silly devil, I am still daughter to THE King. I still encompass the things that make a Proverbs 31 woman, I needed this reminder today! I pray you have gleaned wisdom from the Holy Spirit as you took this 31 day journey and read each chapter yourself. Be sure you take it again throughout the year, I promise the Lord will continue to bless you and drop nuggets of wisdom on you each time you do. 💛 ~ Chelle, #f8ithgal

“The words of king Lemuel, the prophecy that his mother taught him. 2 What, my son? and what, the son of my womb? and what, the son of my vows? 3 Give not thy strength unto women, nor thy ways to that which destroyeth kings. 4 [It is] not for kings, O Lemuel, [it is] not for kings to drink wine; nor for princes strong drink: 5 Lest they drink, and forget the law, and pervert the judgment of any of the afflicted. 6 Give strong drink unto him that is ready to perish, and wine unto those that be of heavy hearts. 7 Let him drink, and forget his poverty, and remember his misery no more. 8 Open thy mouth for the dumb in the cause of all such as are appointed to destruction. 9 Open thy mouth, judge righteously, and plead the cause of the poor and needy. 10 Who can find a virtuous woman? for her price [is] far above rubies. 11 The heart of her husband doth safely trust in her, so that he shall have no need of spoil. 12 She will do him good and not evil all the days of her life. 13 She seeketh wool, and flax, and worketh willingly with her hands. 14 She is like the merchants’ ships; she bringeth her food from afar. 15 She riseth also while it is yet night, and giveth meat to her household, and a portion to her maidens. 16 She considereth a field, and buyeth it: with the fruit of her hands she planteth a vineyard. 17 She girdeth her loins with strength, and strengtheneth her arms. 18 She perceiveth that her merchandise [is] good: her candle goeth not out by night. 19 She layeth her hands to the spindle, and her hands hold the distaff. 20 She stretcheth out her hand to the poor; yea, she reacheth forth her hands to the needy. 21 She is not afraid of the snow for her household: for all her household [are] clothed with scarlet. 22 She maketh herself coverings of tapestry; her clothing [is] silk and purple. 23 Her husband is known in the gates, when he sitteth among the elders of the land. 24 She maketh fine linen, and selleth [it]; and delivereth girdles unto the merchant. 25 Strength and honour [are] her clothing; and she shall rejoice in time to come. 26 She openeth her mouth with wisdom; and in her tongue [is] the law of kindness. 27 She looketh well to the ways of her household, and eateth not the bread of idleness. 28 Her children arise up, and call her blessed; her husband [also], and he praiseth her. 29 Many daughters have done virtuously, but thou excellest them all. 30 Favour [is] deceitful, and beauty [is] vain: [but] a woman [that] feareth the LORD, she shall be praised. 31 Give her of the fruit of her hands; and let her own works praise her in the gates.” Proverbs 31:1-31
