“Who can find a virtuous woman? for her price is far above rubies” Proverbs 31:10
When someone abuses you, they don’t see what God sees in you. When someone disrespects you, they don’t see what God sees in you. And to be honest, if you allow the abuse and the disrespect, you don’t see what God sees in you. The Scripture above asks, “Who can find a virtuous woman?” The word “virtuous” here means a force; an army, wealth, virtue, valor, strength. This Scripture is not merely focusing on the woman, but on the kind of man it takes to find this kind of woman. It takes a certain kind of guy to find you, see you and love you. You’re asking, “Why won’t he love me?” Well, he’s not looking for a costly gem, he’s looking for a good time. When you’re desperate to be loved and afraid to be alone, this will only attract heartbreak.
Receive God’s love. Let Him show you who you are in Christ. Let the treasure within you enrich you and add value to you. When you do this, you won’t settle for a guy that knows nothing about rubies. Instead, you’ll wait on the one that recognizes a jewel when he sees one and who knows how to treat you.
Prayer: Father God, I thank you for speaking directly to my heart. I receive your love, your wisdom and only the man you have for me. Show me who I am in you. Help me see myself the way you see me. I don’t want to be found by just anyone. Let your man, your son, find me and let me add value to his life and bless him. In Jesus name, Amen.
