Woman of Provision

Vs. 21
She has no fear of the winter for her household,
for all of them have warm clothes.

The King James Version says that she has no fear of winter because her family is clothed in scarlet.......in Scripture, scarlet is used to represent a covering or is used symbolize a sign of safety. And because of her diligence, time management, stewardship, responsibility, and wisdom; she is able to prepare accordingly for each season. A lot of times, we panic or easily become overwhelm when life gets hectic or tough. But since this woman has been intentional of being a good steward of her time; she is prepared and able to overcome the times of life that seem impossible to endure.

She has exceeded in her role of excellence in her time with the Lord, selflessness, priorities, serving, exercising faith, and because of her good stewardship in the "small" things, she is able to handle the big when they come her way. She is grounded in the things of God. The times she spends with the Lord and proving herself faithful, she is gaining the wisdom she needs to keep her family covered, protected, and provided for.
"Anyone who listens to my teaching and follows it is wise, like a person who builds a house on solid rock. Though the rain comes in the torrents and the flood waters rise and the winds beat against that house, it wont collapse because it is build on bedrock. But anyone who hears my teaching and ignores it is foolish, like a person who builds a house on sand. When the rain and floods come and the winds beat against that, it will collapse with a mighty crash." Matthew 7:24-25
