Becoming a Proverbs 31 Woman
What does the Bible say about? But if the unbelieving partner separates, let it be so. In such cases the brother or sister is not enslaved. God has called you to peace. So guard yourselves in your spirit, and do not be faithless.
And I say to you: whoever divorces his wife, except for sexual immorality, and marries another, commits adultery. Therefore a man shall leave his father and his mother and hold fast to his wife, and they shall become one flesh. The husband should give to his wife her conjugal rights, and likewise the wife to her husband. For the wife does not have authority over her own body, but the husband does.
Likewise the husband does not have authority over his own body, but the wife does. Do not deprive one another, except perhaps by agreement for a limited time, that you may devote yourselves to prayer; but then come together again, so that Satan may not tempt you because of your lack of self-control. To the rest I say I, not the Lord that if any brother has a wife who is an unbeliever, and she consents to live with him, he should not divorce her.
If any woman has a husband who is an unbeliever, and he consents to live with her, she should not divorce him. For the unbelieving husband is made holy because of his wife, and the unbelieving wife is made holy because of her husband. Otherwise your children would be unclean, but as it is, they are holy. For how do you know, wife, whether you will save your husband? Or how do you know, husband, whether you will save your wife? But I say to you that everyone who divorces his wife, except on the ground of sexual immorality, makes her commit adultery, and whoever marries a divorced woman commits adultery.
Be kind to one another, tenderhearted, forgiving one another, as God in Christ forgave you. A wife is bound to her husband as long as he lives. But if her husband dies, she is free to be married to whom she wishes, only in the Lord. To the married I give this charge not I, but the Lord : the wife should not separate from her husband but if she does, she should remain unmarried or else be reconciled to her husband , and the husband should not divorce his wife.
He who finds a wife finds a good thing and obtains favor from the Lord. For my father and my mother have forsaken me, but the Lord will take me in. But because of the temptation to sexual immorality, each man should have his own wife and each woman her own husband.
So they are no longer two but one flesh. What therefore God has joined together, let not man separate. Now when Jesus had finished these sayings, he went away from Galilee and entered the region of Judea beyond the Jordan.
And large crowds followed him, and he healed them there. And by this we know that we have come to know him, if we keep his commandments. Therefore an overseer must be above reproach, the husband of one wife, sober-minded, self-controlled, respectable, hospitable, able to teach,. And you shall not bring sin upon the land that the Lord your God is giving you for an inheritance.
If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just to forgive us our sins and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness.
Is anything too hard for me? Likewise, husbands, live with your wives in an understanding way, showing honor to the woman as the weaker vessel, since they are heirs with you of the grace of life, so that your prayers may not be hindered. Pursue love, and earnestly desire the spiritual gifts, especially that you may prophesy. For one who speaks in a tongue speaks not to men but to God; for no one understands him, but he utters mysteries in the Spirit. On the other hand, the one who prophesies speaks to people for their upbuilding and encouragement and consolation.
The one who speaks in a tongue builds up himself, but the one who prophesies builds up the church. Now I want you all to speak in tongues, but even more to prophesy. The one who prophesies is greater than the one who speaks in tongues, unless someone interprets, so that the church may be built up.
Love bears all things, believes all things, hopes all things, endures all things. Love never ends. As for prophecies, they will pass away; as for tongues, they will cease; as for knowledge, it will pass away.
Even these may forget, yet I will not forget you. Behold, I have engraved you on the palms of my hands; your walls are continually before me. For the Lord loves justice; he will not forsake his saints. They are preserved forever, but the children of the wicked shall be cut off. It is the Lord who goes before you.
He will be with you; he will not leave you or forsake you. Do not fear or be dismayed. For I am sure that neither death nor life, nor angels nor rulers, nor things present nor things to come, nor powers, nor height nor depth, nor anything else in all creation, will be able to separate us from the love of God in Christ Jesus our Lord. I will make my dwelling among you, and my soul shall not abhor you. And I will walk among you and will be your God, and you shall be my people.
My little children, I am writing these things to you so that you may not sin. But if anyone does sin, we have an advocate with the Father, Jesus Christ the righteous. He is the propitiation for our sins, and not for ours only but also for the sins of the whole world.
By this we may know that we are in him The revelation of Jesus Christ, which God gave him to show to his servants the things that must soon take place. He made it known by sending his angel to his servant John, who bore witness to the word of God and to the testimony of Jesus Christ, even to all that he saw. Blessed is the one who reads aloud the words of this prophecy, and blessed are those who hear, and who keep what is written in it, for the time is near.
John to the seven churches that are in Asia: Grace to you and peace from him who is and who was and who is to come, and from the seven spirits who are before his throne, and from Jesus Christ the faithful witness, the firstborn of the dead, and the ruler of kings on earth. To him who loves us and has freed us from our sins by his blood Let marriage be held in honor among all, and let the marriage bed be undefiled, for God will judge the sexually immoral and adulterous.
At my first defense no one came to stand by me, but all deserted me. May it not be charged against them! But the Lord stood by me and strengthened me, so that through me the message might be fully proclaimed and all the Gentiles might hear it. So I was rescued from the lion's mouth.
For I know the plans I have for you, declares the Lord , plans for welfare and not for evil, to give you a future and a hope. He shall be free at home one year to be happy with his wife whom he has taken. If he listens to you, you have gained your brother.
But if he does not listen, take one or two others along with you, that every charge may be established by the evidence of two or three witnesses. If he refuses to listen to them, tell it to the church. And if he refuses to listen even to the church, let him be to you as a Gentile and a tax collector. Husbands, love your wives, as Christ loved the church and gave himself up for her, that he might sanctify her, having cleansed her by the washing of water with the word, so that he might present the church to himself in splendor, without spot or wrinkle or any such thing, that she might be holy and without blemish.
In the same way husbands should love their wives as their own bodies. He who loves his wife loves himself. For no one ever hated his own flesh, but nourishes and cherishes it, just as Christ does the church,. I wish that all were as I myself am. But each has his own gift from God, one of one kind and one of another. No man shall be able to stand before you all the days of your life. Just as I was with Moses, so I will be with you.
I will not leave you or forsake you. Be strong and courageous. Do not fear or be in dread of them, for it is the Lord your God who goes with you.
He will not leave you or forsake you. But to all who did receive him, who believed in his name, he gave the right to become children of God,.
Teaching them to observe all that I have commanded you. And behold, I am with you always, to the end of the age. Fear not, for I am with you; be not dismayed, for I am your God; I will strengthen you, I will help you, I will uphold you with my righteous right hand. A Psalm of David. The Lord is my shepherd; I shall not want. He makes me lie down in green pastures. He leads me beside still waters. He restores my soul. He leads me in paths of righteousness for his name's sake.
Even though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil, for you are with me; your rod and your staff, they comfort me. You prepare a table before me in the presence of my enemies; you anoint my head with oil; my cup overflows. And my God will supply every need of yours according to his riches in glory in Christ Jesus.
A Wise Woman Builds Her Home
All I can really do is move forward and try to do my best right now. Yesterday we looked at what it means to make a home. Homemaking is so much more important than our society wants us to believe.
Becoming a Proverbs 31 Woman does not mean you have to be married or have kids. There are verses that mention how to be a good mother and wife, but preparing your heart for those things can help bring you closer to God. Working on becoming a Proverbs 31 woman is something that should be practiced daily, no matter where you are in your walk with God or in life. The following passage is Proverbs in the New Living Translation. I used NLT because I think it simplifies the text and puts it in a language that we use in everyday life.
What does the Bible say about? Delight yourself in the Lord , and he will give you the desires of your heart. Therefore I tell you, whatever you ask in prayer, believe that you have received it, and it will be yours. For I know the plans I have for you, declares the Lord , plans for welfare and not for evil, to give you a future and a hope. Then you will call upon me and come and pray to me, and I will hear you. You will seek me and find me, when you seek me with all your heart. He who finds a wife finds a good thing and obtains favor from the Lord. But seek first the kingdom of God and his righteousness, and all these things will be added to you.
How to build your home with wisdom
When my family moved to a new state last year, my husband and I looked at tons of houses trying to find the right one. As I was reading through Proverbs recently, I was reminded of the optimism that seems to accompany the purchase of a new home. If you think about it, no one ever imagines themselves moving into a new house only to be grumpy, unhealthy or in conflict. I think there is something right about having that kind of fresh hope. The wisest of women builds her house, but folly with her own hands tears it down.
