I have noticed that when the Proverbs 31 woman is mentioned, guys tend to ignore the topic with the mind of ‘it is a girl thing’. This is not the way it should be. The Proverbs 31 was actually a prophetic revelation received by a guy- King Lemuel from his mother. It means the Proverbs 31 woman topic was and is actually intended for the guys.
There are many dangers of bypassing the knowing of this woman, ignoring her has no advantage. To start with, not being interested in the Proverbs 31 woman is ignoring the word of God and will of God. This topic is found in the Scriptures for crying out loud. If you know all of the whole Bible from Genesis to Revelation and you don’t know about Proverbs 31(which I don’t think is possible), then your knowledge of God’s word is not complete. So carefully pick up your Bible now and open to Proverbs 31 and read.
When you don’t know this woman, you won’t recognize the difference between a good lady and a bad one. I can say it bodly that not all good girls meet up to the standard of the Proverbs 31 woman. So, that lady you are dying for can actually know how to cook and not know how to pray. She can actually be very good sincerely, but there might be a little fox that is spoiling the vine.
With the understanding of the Proverbs 31 woman. You can understand which lady to move with and the one to ignore. I can tell you bodly again that if you really understand the Proverbs 31 woman, there are certain ladies in your life that you will run away from (don’t just runaway, pray for them. And if the lady is your fiance, please see your pastor).
So many guys keep asking, ‘how do I recognize a wife material? Is it when she is 20 yards, or 36 yards?’. Bros come, the material you need is what is in Proverbs 31. I am tired of guys complaining that some girls in their life is bad or something.
The understanding of this woman will ensure you a smooth way to relate with ladies- your sister, mum, fiance, friends, neighbours etc. You will know how to respect them and where to encourage and build them up. What would have become of Isaac if only he did not get that woman? He might have traded away a great covenant like Samson who could not tell who a Proverbs 31 woman is. The story of Amnon could have been better if he had respected that Proverbs 31 woman. Mordecai trained Esther to be that Proverbs 31 woman and it really paid him.
Maybe Samson and Amnon had no Proverbs 31 during their days. You have it now. Guy, please get to know her.
God bless you.
