Virtuous Wife

Virtuous Wife in Hebrew means wealthy, rich, honourable, strong. It is from the word
Chayil - Khah-yil soildiers, company, valour, strength, riches, power, war,
Root chuwl –khool – to twist, to dance, make to bring forth, fall grievously with pain, hope, look,, travail with pain, wait carefully (patiently)

Proverbs 31:10

Who can find a virtuous wife? For her worth is far above rubies.
A virtuous wife is wealthy, rich, honourable, bold and strong. The Bible declares that she is above rubies. How powerful and anointed that is to know and allow the precious Holy Spirit to work it out together with us. The virtuous wife is made to bring forth any situation to honour her husband, family and God Almighty. She is able to twist her way through and dance when the tough gets going. She may fall grievously with pain but will rise up and look in hope, travail with pain in prayer and wait patiently with care.
Her lamp does not go out by night and when it is the thickest night her lamp shines brighter than before. Strength and honour are her clothing. She is a watchman over the ways of her household. Everything that goes on in the house she will pick it up before it is known. She not only cares physically for her home but she is also a watchman over the emotional and spiritual condition of her family. She has a servant heart, wise and is kind in her ways and words. She may be wounded and has fear but she will find rest, as her significance is not in men but God. Therefore she excels many daughters even though they have done well.
