A Godly Woman Shall Be Praised

Published Date: May 14, 2018

SCRIPTURE:

Her children stand and bless her. Her husband praises her: “There are many virtuous and capable women in the world, but you surpass them all!” Charm is deceptive, and beauty does not last; but a woman who fears the Lord will be greatly praised.
(Proverbs 31:28-30 NLT)

DEVOTIONAL:

With Mother’s Day just past, let’s take a look at what the Bible says about wives and mothers. Today’s scripture is a small portion of Proverbs 31, which has long been considered the “godly woman chapter” in the Bible.

Reading through the whole chapter might make the job of a godly woman seem overwhelming. This lady is perfect—Who can live up to such an ideal? She is wise, kind, virtuous, capable, trustworthy, loving, giving, helpful, encouraging, energetic, a doer of good deeds, and gets up before dawn, working far into the night to take care of her household and business.

While these are all wonderful attributes for wives and moms (and the rest of us) to attain, thank God for the encouraging words at the end of this chapter as shown in the scripture above. The real key is to “fear the Lord” — to honor and hold Him in reverence. When you put Christ first and He becomes the “Author and Finisher of your faith” and the center of everything you do, you will have all the faith, strength, creativity, wisdom and energy you need to be the woman God created you to be. The Lord will honor you — and so will your husband, children, extended family, friends and everyone you meet!

PRAYER:

Lord, I thank you for godly women everywhere—wives, moms, grandmothers, daughters, aunts, nieces and friends. Bless these hard-working, compassionate and devoted ladies to care for their families and other responsibilities with faithfulness, love and wisdom according to Your Word. Grant them the desires of their heart as they trust in You. In Jesus’ Name, Amen.
