"Her husband has full confidence in her and lacks nothing of value." -Proverbs 31:11
"Whoever trusts in his riches will fall, but the righteous will thrive like a green leaf."-Proverbs 11:28
"He who trusts in himself is a food, but he who walks in wisdom is kept safe." - Proverbs 28:26
"Her husband has full confidence in her...", as women, isn't that one of our deepest desires, for our husbands to look at us & know that they can trust us with their hearts, raise our children, make decisions to run our home, and to support him. Matt & I had a converstation yesterday about a decision that needed to be made about our home, nothing too major, but I went to him to get his opinion & here was his response, "Thanks for asking my opinion, but you run the house so you decide. I know you'll make the right decision." (sigh.) He trusts me. He has full confidence in me. He trusts me. Sometimes I doubt my own decision making, sometimes I want to heed his advice (Wives, submit to your husbands...Colossians 3:18), but what he needs from me is to make the decisions (most of them, but he'd rather we decided together on major ones) & he trusts me to make the right one.
I think that the other verses are reminding us that the only way we can run our homes, children, & be a supportive wife, etc. is by giving everything up to God. We have to continue to develop our relationship with Him & be in His Word daily. And he will give us guidance with anything that is put in front of us. I also think that they are to remind us that it's so important to teach our children to not put so much value on worldly things, because they too will fade away. We need to show them by example & through The Word that God is the life-giver. And we need a deep relationship with Him to be able to face anything that this world brings to our plate.
My prayer is that God will help me to focus on The Word, and to trust that He will show me the paths to take to be a virtuous woman, wife, and mother. That He will give me the wisdom & let me lead by example to teach my children the importance of seeking God in every aspect of their lives.
