Understanding More of the Proverbs 31 Woman.

Today I attended a recording session of Revive Our Hearts radio and all I can say is that I have come away blessed. This was my first and I am sorry to say last session I will attend because the ministry is relocating there radio recordings out of state. It was wonderful to see several women joined together and gleaning from the Word of God. I want to share with you a few highlights of today's study.

The verses we focused on today where Proverbs 31: 21, 25.

v. 21 She is not afraid of snow for her household, for all her household are clothed in scarlet.
What is the "snow" that we are not to fear?? And how do we apply that in our lives??
  • Both physical and spiritual trials of life
  • She prepares her family for the trials of life. Even the trials of God's ultimate judgement on earth.

Another definition of "scarlet" is "doubly clothed."

She is a woman who is knowledgeable, alert and knows what is to come. She is prepared. She is proactive. The choices she makes today are for tomorrow. She is a woman who plans ahead.

The reason this woman does not fear is because she "fears the Lord."

v. 25 Strength and dignity are her clothing, and she laughs at the time to come.

  • This is a strength of mind, heart and soul.
  • Dignity can also be defined as might, beauty and honor.

You could also define the second part "she smiles at the future."

She lives in constant tranquility of mind. -John Wesley

She knows that the final chapter has been written and she rejoices!

For more on this topic tune in to the future broadcast on Revive Our Hearts radio.
