We live in a society wherein people were unguarded with the full armor of God (Ephesians 6:10-17) against the lustful desires of the heart. (1 Peter 2:11 “Dearly beloved, I beseech you as strangers and pilgrims, abstain from fleshly lusts, which war against the soul;”).
Today, it is no longer a big deal if someone engaged in pre-marital sex, for “HOLINESS” and “PURITY” is of no value with the fleshly and lustful world, for the culture of this generation behold the wrong definition of true beauty, the true beauty of a “VIRTOUS WOMAN”.
“Who can find a virtuous woman? for her price is far above rubies. Proverbs 31:10 ”
“Many daughters have done virtuously, but thou excellest them all. Proverbs 31:29”
So why does a virtuous woman is of great price? Do the Biblical verses exaggerate when it says, “her price is far above rubies” and “thou excellest them all”?
The answer is “NO”, for when the Bible says a “virtuous woman”, it refers to the Godly women whose values are based on the Bible, who’s mind is conformed and saturated to the holiness of God, who’s heart is filled with “how do I please the Lord of my salvation through my womanhood? ”.
For if a woman do lust for a man sensually, she is like a prostitute, an immoral child of the carnal world who’s heart is full of wickedness, that kind of a woman is not worthy of praise, as she is disgracing the holiness of the Lord by having a lustful desires of the heart.
“And he said, That which cometh out of the man, that defileth the man.For from within, out of the heart of men, proceed evil thoughts, adulteries, fornications, murders, Thefts, covetousness, wickedness, deceit, lasciviousness, an evil eye, blasphemy, pride, foolishness: All these evil things come from within, and defile the man. Mark 7:20- 23”
Now therefore sister in Christ, let us walk in holiness with God, abstaining oneself from all the unrighteousness of the carnal and lustful world, for surely you will be praised by the Lord, and men will surely value you, as they see the reflection of Christ in your womanhood.
“Favour is deceitful, and beauty is vain: but a woman that feareth the Lord, she shall be praised. Proverbs 31:30”
Do not conform to the worldly definition of beauty by showing off skin just to get the attention of a guy, for the truth is, a woman who’s body is covered with modest clothing do honor the holiness of the Lord, as she is saying, “no lustful arousal from a man, for it is a sin”. And when Godly men do see the Christ likeness in a women? Surely he will honor her, as his heart do safely rest in her, knowing the fact that she can be trusted, that he will be cherished in singleness of heart, for a women with Biblical values will honor a man, just like how she honored the Holy God in the Bible, in “HOLINESS”,”PURITY” AND “FEAR OF SIN”.
“She maketh herself coverings of tapestry; her clothing is silk and purple. Her husband is known in the gates, when he sitteth among the elders of the land. Proverbs 31:22-23 ”
“Her children arise up, and call her blessed; her husband also, and he praiseth her.Proverbs 31:28”
So to all women out there, let us follow the Biblical definition of “WOMANHOOD”, the true beauty of a “VIRTOUS WOMAN”, for surely, if we obey such truth, God will bless such beauty with a Godly man who will honor you, the way he honors the Lord.
And for the single ladies out there? Just tell yourself with these truths:
- “I will guard my heart diligently for God’s glorification”
“Keep thy heart with all diligence; for out of it are the issues of life. Proverbs 4:23”
- “I will wait for the Lord’s appointed time wherein He will allow me to be in a Christ centered relationship, I will delight myself in Him, for when I do that, all things will be added unto me.”
“A time to love, and a time to hate; a time of war, and a time of peace. Ecclesiastes 3:8”
“But seek ye first the kingdom of God, and his righteousness; and all these things shall be added unto you. Matthew 6:33”
Dearly beloved women of faith, honor God first by obeying the truths in the Bible, let us call upon His name through prayer in faith. For surely, mercy and goodness will follow to those who obey Him, for surely, the Lord will guide a God fearing woman to the path of righteousness, the only path where true self worth can be found as a daughter of the Most High God in heaven, a co- heir of the Lord Jesus Christ, His Son and our Savior.
GOD IS FAITHFUL
