There is a song by Jim Reeves I loved to listen to in my teenage years with this line in the chorus, “It is no secret what God can do, What he has done for others, He’ll do for you…”. While there is such great truths in this line, there is a piece I would add if I had a chance to, “…but you need to know what others have done to be blessed and you do the same to be blessed”. I think it is easy to want what others have without desiring to labor like the way they did to have what they have.

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. She left her home where she worshiped pagan gods and followed Naomi who was her mother in law before she lost her son (husband to Ruth). 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.”

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 »
