“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.” Proverbs 31: 10-12
I am a woman of noble character. Now, if you think you know me, that might make you laugh, for I have made some doozy mistakes.
But know one thing – I am the daughter of the King of Kings and Lord of Lords. I am a new creation and daily I desire to grow more and more into the woman God created me to be.
I am putting this Daily Battle Order out of order, and encouraging you as men to read all of Proverbs 31: 10-31; for you, as a husband, brother, nephew, uncle or friend should understand how God describes an outstanding woman. She is a composite portrait of ideal womanhood. She is an inspiration. We, as women, can’t be just like her but we can grow in integrity, industry, resourcefulness, beauty, and love when you as men come alongside us with the same aspirations and encouragement to pursue these ideals.
Now back to the middle of this DBO. My father cherished my mother and our family of three daughters. He saw things in us that we didn’t value till many years later, but he planted seeds of encouragement and shaped our character. My husband read this to me very early in our marriage, wanting to see me like this, and have me embrace this for myself. Together we have shared this and read it as blessings over young couples we have mentored and seen marry.
Kingdom Men – it is your responsibility to demonstrate fear of God, and share ideals with the women in your families. I promise you that fear of God, and supporting these ideals will lead to victory, honor, and incredible worth.
