Proverbs 31 has to be the bible verse that brings bible-believers, and feminists together. That women are strong, can work, feed themselves and their family is a point that feminists and bible-believers can agree on. The proverbs 31 woman is a woman who is all about her business. She is a hard-working woman who makes things happen for herself and her family, she is a woman of strength.
How many proverbs 31 women exist today? In this Instagram age of duck face selfies, crop-top close up selfies, groupfies, and a bunch of other superficial situations, how many proverbs 31 women exist? In our modern age of plastic surgery, implants, Photoshop, and unnecessary ideals, how many women of this caliber exist?
Proverbs 31 explicates the strength contained in womanhood. Just because Eve was made from a rib in Adam’s body does not mean that she was a person of any less strength. God knew exactly what he was doing when he made women. It is time to stop seeking validation from men, and from superficial situations, and rise up to live in God’s plan for us, because YES, a girl can.
This needs to be a prayer point, because personally I believe that no person becomes who they are made to be without God’s blessing. So ladies, pray with me
(Before you pray, remember to first ask for a forgiveness of sin. Forgive those who have wronged you, and come clean before the Lord)
“Father God, today I decree by the words of my mouth, and I declare, that I would become a symbol of true womanhood. I pray for strength, divine strength, true strength, to be a Proverbs 31 woman. I would not fail, and I would not falter, God I would be who I was made to be, in Jesus name, Amen”.
For the readers who do not know what Proverbs 31 says, or who need to refresh their memories, I copied and pasted it below. Read it during your free time. May God’s blessings be with you all, Amen. ❤ ❤
Proverbs 31, verse 10 to 31
Epilogue: The Wife of Noble Character
10 [b]A wife of noble character who can find?
She is worth far more than rubies.
11 Her husband has full confidence in her
and lacks nothing of value.
12 She brings him good, not harm,
all the days of her life.
13 She selects wool and flax
and works with eager hands.
14 She is like the merchant ships,
bringing her food from afar.
15 She gets up while it is still night;
she provides food for her family
and portions for her female servants.
16 She considers a field and buys it;
out of her earnings she plants a vineyard.
17 She sets about her work vigorously;
her arms are strong for her tasks.
18 She sees that her trading is profitable,
and her lamp does not go out at night.
19 In her hand she holds the distaff
and grasps the spindle with her fingers.
20 She opens her arms to the poor
and extends her hands to the needy.
21 When it snows, she has no fear for her household;
for all of them are clothed in scarlet.
22 She makes coverings for her bed;
she is clothed in fine linen and purple.
23 Her husband is respected at the city gate,
where he takes his seat among the elders of the land.
24 She makes linen garments and sells them,
and supplies the merchants with sashes.
25 She is clothed with strength and dignity;
she can laugh at the days to come.
26 She speaks with wisdom,
and faithful instruction is on her tongue.
27 She watches over the affairs of her household
and does not eat the bread of idleness.
28 Her children arise and call her blessed;
her husband also, and he praises her:
29 “Many women do noble things,
but you surpass them all.”
30 Charm is deceptive, and beauty is fleeting;
but a woman who fears the Lord is to be praised.
31 Honor her for all that her hands have done,
and let her works bring her praise at the city gate.
