“Whoso findeth a wife findeth a good thing, and obtaineth favour of the LORD.” (Proverbs 18:22)
There is absolutely nothing wrong with a virtuous woman, having been fearfully and wonderfully made in the very image of the ultimate desirableness (Psalm 139:14), making the most of her God given glamour and physical grace, adorned with the refinement of a gentle and quiet spirit as well as the fervent fires of faith and prayer. Such stewardship is to be commended and applauded by all who love righteousness. If the daughter of the Most High God maintains an awareness of who she represents and who has made her as she is, she will in no way act uncomely and shall seek always to glorify her Father which art in Heaven. It is at the center, the mind of Christ within her, that Boaz shall find and cover her virtuosity with his robe. It is her character and not her looks that induce such devotion and welcomes sanctity home. It is the righteous man who is blessed in his search and the righteous woman who is thereby found waiting upon the Lord. My brethren, the Lord saith, “I will instruct thee and teach thee in the way which thou shalt go: I will guide thee with mine eye.” (Psalm 32:8) To both brother and sister I therefore admonish you to “Wait on the LORD: be of good courage, and he shall strengthen thine heart: wait, I say, on the LORD.” (Psalm 27:14) God is the master builder, the composer that shall join together the intended themes into a symphony most pleasing to His ear.
