You got this!

virtuouscapableProverbs 31:10 asks a daunting question.

Who can find a virtuous and capable wife? It almost implies that these two things together are nearly impossible to find. The second part of the verses says “She is more precious than rubies.”

Oh to find a woman such as this, the writer Solomon cries. If you find her, do not let her go.

Many of us as wives and moms don’t feel capable at times, and what on earth does virtuous really mean in today’s world anyway?

Let’s look at some simple definitions.

Capable: Able to achieve efficiently whatever one has to do

Virtuous: Having or showing high moral standards

What I want to tell you, dear, tired, mom, wife, child of God is that you are more than capable. You have absolutely everything you need in Christ Jesus to fulfill the role that he is asking of you.

He has promised us strength.
He has promised us grace.
He has promised us peace.
He has promised us wisdom.
He has promised us knowledge.
He has promised to be our joy.

Partnering with our Lord, you are 100% equipped as a capable wife. If every batch of muffins flop and you can’t figure out how to fold a fitted sheet (ok, I need to learn a trick for those) you are still capable of doing what you need to.

You are worth far more than rubies. Or diamonds. Or gold.  Or {insert highest valued item here}.

Second is virtuous. High moral standards. We all have standards, but what are they based on? The Holy Spirit is waiting to bring conviction to our hearts.

I will bless the Lord who guides me; even at night my heart instructs me. I know the Lord is always with me. I will not be shaken, for he is right beside me.

Psalm 16:7-8

So I hope you hear what I’m trying to say.

You got this.

In better english: You can do this!

God is continually strengthening and equipping you to do exactly what he needs you to do as a wife and mom.

Not what I need to do, or what your best friend needs to do, or your sister needs to do. He’s equipping you to do what YOU need to do.

Don’t compare. Don’t strive.

If you don’t do what you’re to do, than whose going to do it?

Who can find a virtuous and capable wife? YOUR HUSBAND!

Be blessed with strength, courage and a mind secure in Jesus Christ today!
