Proverbs Thirty One Woman, Part 3of3, Evans Olang

Posted on Updated on


Proverbs 31:10-30, “Charm is deceitful and beauty is passing, But a woman who fears the LORD, she shall be praised.”

A virtuous woman is a woman of destiny, Proverbs 31:25, “Strength and honor are her clothing and she shall rejoice in time to come”. Everything she is doing is to bringing her strength and honor and it’s not because she is trying to build herself a name but because her character has placed her in a position where people honor and respect her, and therefore she has a destiny that will cause her to rejoice. Mary the mother of Jesus becomes a woman of destiny for she is favored among women to carry a precious seed that will one day save the entire world. Read the rest of this entry »

Proverbs 31:10-30, “Charm is deceitful and beauty is passing, But a woman who fears the LORD, she shall be praised.”

A virtuous woman is a woman of Obedience, Proverbs 31:11&12, “The heart of her husband safely trust her; so he will have no lack again, she does him good and not evil all the days of her life.” There is a proverb that says obedience is better than sacrifice and we see this in the life of Ruth.

Proverbs 31:10-30, “Charm is deceitful and beauty is passing, But a woman who fears the LORD, she shall be praised.”

These three part series is an encouragement to godly women and learning experience to godly men about godly women. I have learnt a lot watching my wife, the women in my ministry, my mom, some of the ladies I discipled back in the days. My learning enables me to treat and pray for them effectively. The intercessory prayer ministry my wife and I were involved with, 95% were ladies. Read the rest of this entry »

1Samuel 25:2-42, “Then David said to Abigail: “Blessed is the LORD God of Israel, who sent you this day to meet me! And blessed is your advice and blessed are you, because you have kept me this day from coming to bloodshed and from avenging myself”

A question often asked, “Why do bad things happen to good people?” (of course there is no one good by biblical definition). I have one of my own, “Why do some nice people find themselves in what I would call bad marriages?”. Read the rest of this entry »
