“Charm and grace are deceptive, and beauty is vain [because it is not lasting], but a woman who reverently and worshipfully fears the Lord, she shall be praised!” Proverbs 31:30, Amplified

What are Christian men looking for in a wife these days? Is it primarily the bottle-shaped figure, the long hair extensions, or the ability to cook and clean simultaneously? I tell you this, you can have charm and be the life of the party or you can be drop dead gorgeous with a healthy and tone body, but it means nothing if God isn’t number one in your life, sitting on the throne of your heart, and the one governing your decisions.

Are you always complaining, always negative, always finding something to argue about? When something bad happens, is it always the end of the world and you’re somewhere crying, depressed and dying with anxiety? A fear of the Lord will help. A reverent and worshipful fear of the Lord is not just tears flowing down your face as you worship on Sunday, it is wanting to know how God feels about every issue in your life and adapting to His will, rather than trying to get Him to adapt to yours. It is letting His love fill every part of you. It is learning to see yourself and others how God sees you and those around you. It is loving what God loves and hating what He hates.

Fear the Lord and you won’t have to cry another night about wanting a husband. He will spot you out from a room filled with a thousand women.

Prayer: Father God, I thank you for your work in me. Thank you for this relation we have and for helping me to see myself the way you see me. I want to be what you consider beautiful. Fill me with your love. Help me align my life to your ways. In Jesus name, Amen.
