Review from last week read Proverbs 31: 10 -15

Proverbs 31: 16 a
16 She considers a field and buys it;
This is a woman that has crossed social boundaries. In the context of when this book was written men were the sole providers.

But this verse shoots a women out, not as a liberal, not a feminist but as a woman of God.

Society has perverted many things about the role of women.

There is a Biblical Godly strength, that does not have the spirit of the world, in a Godly women. She does not discuss this with her husband, not because she is rebellious, there is a trust in her relationship and her husband trusts her judgment

She considers, she is not impulsive, she evaluates. She knows something about the grace in her life. She can provide for her family.

Proverbs 31: 16 b
From her profits she plants a vineyard.

Proverbs 31: 24
24 She makes linen garments and sells them,
And supplies sashes for the merchants

Pray for women entrepreneurs to rise up, God will give you ideas , connections to support your family

Proverbs 31: 17
17 She girds herself with strength,
And strengthens her arms.

She is not isolated, we can call one another and share, two are better than one. A woman of strength has a connection with the Lord. She knows when to pray with others. But she can strengthen herself, preaching to herself.

Proverbs 31: 18
18 She perceives that her merchandise is good,
And her lamp does not go out by night.

She discerns, her spirit is awake at night, the spirit does not sleep, the spirit is connected to God, the mind has shut down and God can communicate with your spirit. It does not mean that she does not go to sleep

Proverbs 31: 19
19 She stretches out her hands to the distaff,
And her hand holds the spindle.

She is busy working

Proverbs 31: 20
20 She extends her hand to the poor,

Yes, she reaches out her hands to the needy. There is a grace on her to help the needy. She is not just about her and her own. There are needy people all around.

Proverbs 31: 21a
21 She is not afraid of snow for her household,

She is not afraid of the natural circumstances around her, it doesn’t matter if it snows, rains, thunders, earthquakes… She has a connection with the Lord. There is a conference in her heart, her household is prepared. She understands ‘God is my refuge and my fortress; My God, in Him I will trust.’

Fear will always come knocking at your door but you will be strong in the Lord. Speak the Word to it.

Proverbs 31: 21b
For all her household is clothed with scarlet.

Proverbs 31: 22a
22 She makes tapestry for herself;

Proverbs 7: 16
16 I have spread my bed with tapestry,

Colored coverings of Egyptian linen. Unlike the adulterous woman this virtuous woman is preparing her bed and it’s not for sleeping!!!

A women of strength considers her sexual life with her husband and prepares for it. It’s important for her because it’s important for him

Proverbs 31: 22b
Her clothing is fine linen and purple.

Proverbs 31: 23
23 Her husband is known in the gates,
When he sits among the elders of the land.

A woman of strength will add value to her husband, enabling him to be a man of influence.

Proverbs 31: 25
25 Strength and honor are her clothing;
She shall rejoice in time to come.

Proverbs 31: 26a
26 She opens her mouth with wisdom,

That means we can open our mouth without wisdom. A wise woman needs to know when to open her mouth. If you opened your mouth and put your foot in it say you are sorry.

Proverbs 31: 26b
And on her tongue is the law of kindness.

Kindness in the pressure times, not just on vacation times.

Proverbs 31: 27a
27 She watches over the ways of her household,

The eyes of her spirit are always on the lookout over her family. Women of Virtue are Spiritual watchmen of the home. Women sense things, pay attention to that radar. Husbands need to be aware of this grace on their wives.

Proverbs 31: 27b
And does not eat the bread of idleness.

Don’t miss out on God opportunities because you are distracted with things that were worthless

Proverbs 31: 28-30
28 Her children rise up and call her blessed;
Her husband also, and he praises her:
29 “Many daughters have done well,
But you excel them all.”
30 Charm is deceitful
And beauty is passing,

We can spend so much time on trying to maintain our youthful beauty but in 20 years!!!

Proverbs 31: 30b
But a woman who fears the Lord, she shall be praised.

She has a reverence of God. She makes Jesus Lord every day. She is submitted to the Lord

Proverbs 31: 31a
31 Give her of the fruit of her hands,

Praise God, keep looking to the Lord, and not grow weary in doing good and in due season you will reap the fruit of your hand.

Proverbs 31: 31b
And let her own works praise her in the gates.

Gates represents authority and influence. There is a grace on women and husbands need to partner with God to see the plan of God fulfilled in their lives, and it will benefit you and the family

Women are the sleeping giant - wake up not with the spirit of society, but a Godly spirit.
