Is My Worth Far Above Rubies? Part III

This post is a continuation from Part II HERE 


So, is my worth far above rubies?  What must I do to be worthy?  Am I expected to be perfect?  No.  We can best get our definition of what God calls us to be from the Proverbs 31 woman (Proverbs 31:10-31).  “Who can find a virtuous wife? For her worth is far above rubies. The heart of her husband safely trusts her; so he will have no lack of gain. She does him good and not evil all the days of her life.” Prov 31:10-12

We are called to be trustworthy to our husbands.  We should not hold secrets or be deceptive or manipulative.  Our husbands should be able to trust us.  They should be able to trust that we have their best interests at heart in all that we do and say (or don't say, i.e. gossip).  We should do our husbands good, not evil. Be careful about how we talk about our husbands.  We should not be pouring out our troubles or differences for others to have a bad view of our spouses.  Praise should always be on our lips.

Women, I exhort you to find something to praise your husband for every day.  I know I have not done this and God is calling me to a higher level TODAY.  Do we argue?  Yes, we have many ‘disagreements’, but we always know that Jesus is our rock.  He is our strong tower.  If we have humble hearts that are willing to be molded by the potter’s hand, we will become willing vessels that He can pour Himself into that we can then share His love and wisdom with our mates.

Our direction comes from the Lord.  We must be willing to repent when we step over the boundaries that He has set so that we can remain victorious in Him and advance His kingdom.  Our son is a testimony of what faith in God can do.  We tried unsuccessfully for almost 8 years to conceive and after dedicated, anointed prayer and God’s timing, he was our blessing.  Why have there not been any more pregnancies?  Only God knows.  Perhaps for such a time as this.  We are getting ready to step into another chapter in our life.  We are now licensed to be foster parents and are eagerly waiting to see what God will do in this new season.  Keep your faith in God and what He can do in you and through your marriage and you will stay on the right track.  Is my worth far above rubies?  God thinks so!
