Proverbs 31:25

“Strength and dignity are [an excellent wife’s] clothing, and she smiles at the future.” (NASB)


“Strength (`oz or `owz: power, might, boldness) and dignity (hadar: glory, majesty, honor, beauty) are [an excellent wife’s] clothing, and she smiles (sachaq: plays, laughs, rejoices) at the future.”


Strength, power, might, boldness, majesty, honor, beauty, dignity – these are an excellent wife’s clothing, and she rejoices at what is to come.


I have a wonderful wife that is the greatest gift the LORD has ever given me, other than Himself. There is no debate about that. She, however has a serious problem. Now it’s not exclusive to her, so don’t get too worried about it. In fact, I’d say most every one of us also face this problem now and then. She just doesn’t see the depths of the LORD within herself. She often fails to behold the great value that the LORD has placed within her. Perhaps, she even has a hard time seeing the great things that the LORD has laid before her. So this morning, I post this for her… and for the rest of us. May we be found strong, dignified and smiling at what the future holds. See the LORD going before you. See Him and hold your head high, determined to take hold to all that He has waiting for you in your tomorrows.
