People today use the word, love, loosely.
But you have found real love – through God.
Love forgave you.
Love stayed when everyone else left.
Love prayed you through some difficult times.
Love built you up, not tear you down.
King Lemuel didn’t say a good woman was rare. He said a virtuous woman was rare. One of the definitions of virtuous is strength. To strengthen your muscles, you have to lift, push and pull. She didn’t gain this strength overnight. She went through some things to become what you see today and because she didn’t give up, it strengthened her faith in God, her love for God and for you.
Please don’t take her for granted. Remember when you were single. Remember when you desired to be married. You were looking. You were searching. When you found a wife, you just didn’t find her, but you found favor from the Lord.
He who finds a wife finds a good thing, and obtains favor from the Lord (Proverbs 18:22).
God has been very good to you. Despite all the bad things you’ve done, God still gave you a ‘good thing’. Even though you’re not perfect, He gave you what was right and perfect for you. Enjoy her (Proverbs 5:18). Do good to her. Respect her. Love her.
Husbands, love your wives, even as Christ also loved the church, and gave himself for it (Ephesians 5:25).
Then the Lord God said, It is not good that the man should be alone; I will make him an help meet for him (Genesis 2:18).
Don’t let the enemy deceive you. There are a lot of beautiful women out there and there are a lot of good women out there, but you already have the help you need. You don’t have to look anymore.
