“She Does Him Good All the Days of Her Life…”

In Proverbs 31 – the Woman Who Fears the Lord, verse 12 says, “She brings him good, not harm all the days of her life.” Does this mean just when you know who “he” is? No. It means even now. All the days of your life you should be doing good for the man who will one day be your husband. You may be wondering, how can I him good if I do not know who he is? That is what we will work through this chapter. How can you do this man in your future good during your season of singleness?

Firstly, pray for Him. Be specific. Pray that He would seek God and know Him intimately. Pray that he would be pure in heart, mind and motive. Pray for His desires that they would be right. Pray for his hopes and dreams that God would work through them and through him. Pray for him like the love of your life that he will be one day. Pray that he will be sensitive to the Lord’s leading. I earnestly encourage you to pray for your future husband. Don’t hold anything back. Be and intercessor for him. Prayer plays a powerful part in bringing people closer together.

Also, grow to be a woman of God. You are doing your future husband good right now just by consciously making the choice to prepare your life for him. Learning how to be a godly lady-in-waiting in this season of singleness is more than just showing you how to spend this season in your life – it is teaching you the qualities that make up a godly woman, wife and mother – which most of you will be someday.

Over the years, as I have prayed for my husband-to-be, my future knight in shining armor, I have given my heart to God and He, in turn will give it to the one that later will come into my life. I find myself in love with this man that I very well may not have met. He feels so close in my prayers. It is in this time that I believe God is bringing our hearts together. Prayer changes things. It is our link to the all-powerful God and creator of all things. A thing to remember is that prayer is not a monologue but a dialogue. How often are you silent before God just to hear Him speak? If you will listen, you will hear Him. If you seek Him you will find Him. These are both conditional statements. If you come to him with a right heart and pray to Him – He will hear you. And if you watch and stay close with Him – you will see Him move.

Praying for your future husband is something that you should be doing every day. Intercede for Him – yes, even now. You may not know Him – but God both sees and knows Him. You do not need to know Him to pray for Him. Also, pray that God will bring Him in at the right time and that you would be sensitive to God’s leading in everything.

In what other ways can you do your future man good for all of his days? You are already praying for him and you are working on growing in the character of a woman who fears the Lord. What else could possibly be left? Well, that, my dear, is to take care of you yourself. Stay strong. Stay pure. Know what you believe. Take care of your body and stay healthy. Be healthy mentally and emotionally, as well as spiritually. You, as the missing piece of this man need to do your very best to stay whole. You are going to complete Him, so start now to do Him good. Take the journey to wholeness and stay in that wholeness. Do your man some good and take care of yourself. This is something that should become a lifestyle for you. You need to know how to take care of yourself so that you can know how to take care of your husband and children someday as well.

Those are just a few ways that you can do good for your future husband even now. What are some other ways that you can think of that could bless your future husband and do him good? Please, share in the comments below.

God bless,
