A capable, intelligent, and virtuous woman—who is he who can find her? She is far more precious than jewels and her value is far above rubies or pearls [Proverbs 31:10, AMPC]
When I meditated on this verse, something came to mind (the scripture below). I need to be hid in God to be found in HIM, only then can he (God’s chosen man for me) obtain favour from God!
He who finds a [true] wife finds a good thing and obtains favour from the Lord [Proverbs 18:22, AMPC]
That is why her price is far above rubies because she is worth more than any precious stone.
- She gives a man his title and beautifies him
Someone who makes her man a real man – real men are not found like pebbles on the streets, they are made by a F.A.R (far above rubies) woman.
A virtuous and worthy wife [earnest and strong in character] is a crowning joy to her husband, but she who makes him ashamed is as rottenness in his bones [Proverbs 12:4, AMPC]
She makes her husband the envy of other men because she is a rare gem (not cheap and cannot be easily found).
- She is like a diamond
She has been processed by Christ, shelved by God and she’s only given away to the man who has got what it takes to get her.
- Her heart is priceless
The man needs to find a very special way to get her and that way is to have a good relationship with the man who made her – God. The man mines for his jewel, he finds her by digging deep in the Word, while going through the training by Christ. Christ polishes her for him to make her his perfect bride, his crown and that is how he obtains favour from God because he did it the right way.
Let him find you not steal you
