“Blessed are those who find wisdom, those who gain understanding, for she is more profitable than silver and yields better returns than gold. She is more precious than rubies; nothing you desire can compare with her.” (Proverbs 3:13-15 NIV).
For those who repeatedly say and believe that God doesn’t use women–think again! Apparently, His perception of a woman is even greater than those who have written poetry and songs and even love letters that attempt to describe her worth. How do I know? God refers to wisdom as a woman. Now, look at that!
Blessed are those who find wisdom, for she is…
More profitable than silver and yields better returns than gold. This is why when we lack wisdom, we should God for more of His. Operating in His wisdom is the catalyst for obtaining all the riches we could ever want.
More precious that rubies–better to amass wisdom than precious stones–for the stones are temporary and can turn to dust; while wisdom enlightens, showing us the way, never ending.
Nothing a man could desire can compare with her–with wisdom, and operating in it–he has no need to desire anything else.
Now, if we understand God’s purpose in comparing wisdom to a woman, we will understand what God means when He says, “He who finds a wife, finds a good thing.” God is not calling a woman or wife a thing, but maintaining the comparison of her to wisdom and saying–it is more profitable to have a good woman in a man’s life–she doesn’t have to drip silver and gold, she is better than silver and gold. In fact, if she was clothed in precious stones, they would never outshine her natural beauty ignited by the wisdom from deep within her soul. This is an incomparable woman–created by God to be all He desires her to be!
How many incomparable women do you know? Are you one of them? Some days, I forget just how precious I am to God when I allow the pressures of the day to weigh me down, but then I am reminded of His Word and I know, I am more precious to Him than silver and gold and all the precious stones combined. I am that incomparable woman, when I operate in His Wisdom!
Enjoying The Lord this morning and reveling in being a woman–from beginning to end!
