Proverbs 31 Woman — Part 2

The heart of her husband safely trusts her;
So he will have no lack of gain.

(Proverbs 31:11)

LORD Jesus, we praise You that You have not left us alone. Thank You that we are not without any counsel, but that we can find wisdom and understanding through studying our Bible. Enable us, O God we pray, so that we may become women of the Word — in faith and in deed. In Jesus’ precious name we pray. Amen.

Whenever I read this particular chapter of God’s Word, I’m amazed at how perfect the virtuous woman is — um, and how far I’m from it.

Are you familiar with what the Bible says about her? Would you like to go through Proverbs 31:10-31 verse by verse? Good, because this is going to be our topic for the next 21 blog posts. So hold on tight, and let’s study on.

You will notice that today’s post jumps right into the “second” verse (11). So let me point you to a former post that used to be titled “The Worth of a Wife” and which I renamed into Proverbs 31 Woman — Part 1

READ — Let’s read today’s verse again:

The heart of her husband safely trusts her;
So he will have no lack of gain.

ENGAGE — Think: What does the verse say? (Copy/Paste)

What part of your husband is suppose to trust in you?
(His) _____

In what way?

What will be the outcome for him?
_____ _____ _____ _____ _____ _____ _____

APPLY — Think: Is this true in your own marriage?

Is your husband able to trust you with his heart? Why, or why not?
Can he let go and safely trust in you? Why, or why not?

DO — Think: What (more) can you do to make things happen?

Get to know more about him (What is he fond of? What does he fear? When does he feel the most comfortable? How does he act whenever he is hungry/sad/tired/in pain?) Give him the extra space, the comfort, and the help he needs so he can feel “safely at home” and comfortable enough to continue to share “his heart” with you. Treasure these findings as secrets, and do not share them with others.

Of all the 22 verses that are written about the virtuous woman I find this verse the most challenging. I do not want my husband to have any kind of lack of gain. Yes, many times it is a challenge to accomplish that; but the privilege given to me, his very own helper, to assist him so that he will have success, is priceless and all worth it.

Cherish the heart of your husband today.
