Proverbs 31:10, 27-28

An excellent woman [one who is spiritual, capable, intelligent, and virtuous], who is he who can find her? Her value is more precious than jewels and her worth is far above rubies or pearls. She looks well to how things go in her household, And does not eat the bread of idleness. Her children rise up and call her blessed (happy, prosperous, to be admired); Her husband also, and he praises her, saying,

Proverbs 31:10, 27-28 AMP

A virtuous wife who serves the Lord with all her heart is one of the greatest gifts God can give a man.  A woman who supports her husband in prayer and encourages him when he faces trial and struggle is beyond value or measure.  In a marriage it is vital that the husband and wife pray for one another on a daily basis.

Marriage is a physical picture of what our spiritual relationship looks like between the body of Christ and the Lord.  We are called to be a virtuous bride whose sole purpose is to bring honor and glory unto the Lord.  We are called to pursue Him with our whole heart and set aside every idol and hindrance that would keep us from walking in all that God has for us.

To be the virtuous bride that God has called us to be requires us to pursue Him daily.  Our strength and power for walking in obedience and holiness does not reside within ourselves.  It is found in the power and leading of the Holy Spirit.  If we will but abide in Him we will walk in every plan and purpose He has for our lives.
