“She riseth also while it is yet night, and giveth meat to her household, and a portion to her maidens.”
Rising before dawn may disqualify some of us from being called a virtuous woman.
She rises early to seek the Lord.
“O God, thou art my God; early will I seek thee: my soul thirsteth for thee, my flesh longeth for thee in a dry and thirsty land, where no water is; To see thy power and thy glory, so as I have seen thee in the sanctuary.”
Christ rose early to set Himself apart to pray to the Father.
If He saw the need to do that, we ought to consider how important it must be.
The solitude of the morning hours allows us to lift up our prayers unto Him.
“My voice shalt thou hear in the morning, O LORD; in the morning will I direct my prayer unto thee, and will look up.”
A virtuous woman rises with purpose, acknowledging that there is nothing more important that seeking Him.
“But seek ye first the kingdom of God, and his righteousness; and all these things shall be added unto you.”
Before we seek anything or anyone else, we must seek Him first.
