3 Bible Verses That Will Make you Stronger as a Woman

I firmly believe that every woman must know who she is and where she is going. In my years as a woman who serves the Lord I have learned that I must fix my eyes on Jesus and see myself as He sees me. In addition, I must desire the dreams of God in my life. We want all that in some way, right? Today I want to share 5 Bible verses that will make you stronger as a woman. That will help you to achieve God’s dreams in your life.

3 bible verses that will make you stronger as a woman

3 Bible Verses That Will Make you Stronger as a Woman

I want you to know that each of these verses will help you to be a strong woman, but not like Wonder Woman or anything like that. A woman who seeks the wisdom, direction and dependence of God receives the strength of a wild ox as the word says to face any crisis, trial and storm.

  • JAMES 1:5

If any of you lacks wisdom, he is to ask of God, who gives to everyone generously and without rebuke or blame, and it will be given to him.

Every woman need to ask God (who is able to give us always) wisdom.  The wisdom which may be had by asking “in faith” is not intellectual knowledge or philosophical speculation, but spiritual understanding of the purpose of trials. (New Spirit Filled Life Bible).  We needs God wisdom for decision making and for discernment.

  • ESTHER 4:14

…And who knows whether you have attained royalty for such a time as this [and for this very purpose]?”

Maybe you’ll say “what does Esther have to do with me?” Really a lot. I’m fascinated by the story of Esther in the Bible. Personally this story ministers a lot about my processes and the purpose of God in my life. Esther when she became queen never thought that God had a great purpose with her: to intercede for freedom for her people from death. What a big and important task! Right?

On her shoulders was a great responsibility and she very wisely carried it out following the plan of God. She decided to pray and fast to seek God’s direction in the event. You see? A woman who is strong always, and I say will always seek the guidance and direction of God in EVERYTHING!

  • GENESIS 45:4-5

And Joseph said to his brothers, “Please come closer to me.” And they approached him. And he said, “I am Joseph your brother, whom you sold into Egypt.  Now do not be distressed or angry with yourselves because you sold me here, for God sent me ahead of you to save life and preserve our family.

Don’t you cry every time you read the story of Joseph? I do! – It’s one of the most encouraging and moving stories in the bible.  As you know Joseph was thrown the cistern, sold by his brothers, was a slave, and was in jail (read the whole story here).  The picture did not look very encouraging for Joseph. But in this verse we can see that despite the processes in his life (difficult) Joseph did not lose his identity and knew to recognize for what God had raised him.

A woman who recognizes her identity and who is in God will never allow the difficult processes of life to change that identity and the dreams of God in her. On the contrary, she will wait on God until the fulfillment of His purpose on her.

This verse teaches us the power of forgiveness and we women are emotional. We must be careful with the wounds of the heart and allow God to heal all our wounds. Forgiveness gives you power and authority and frees you completely. This will make you a strong woman in God. Do not let pass the opportunity to forgive when it is God’s perfect time to do it.

Finally,  Be a woman like Mary (Martha’s sister) who sat at the feet of her Master to receive from Him that vital and important part that says the word will NEVER BE TAKEN AWAY FROM HER.  Intimacy with God makes us stronger every day.  We have multiple hats in life and many responsibilities, but we must discern what things are really a priority, and our relationship with God for sure, it is!

5 bible verses that will make you stronger as a mom.

1 Corinthians 1:27 
But God has selected [for His purpose] the foolish things of the world to shame the wise [revealing their ignorance], and God has selected [for His purpose] the weak things of the world to shame the things which are strong [revealing their frailty].

With this verse I’m not saying you are foolish, I’m saying God chose you with a purpose; to manifest His Glory in your life.  God uses you as woman and as a mother to reveal His Glory through your life.

Genesis 3:20 The man named his wife Eve (life spring, life giver), because she was the mother of all the living.

We should feel blessed and that we carry a great purpose of God in us.  Eve is the name for the first woman that means: woman and mother of all the living.  Eve was the first woman, the first wife, the most beautiful… with a big purpose “to be the mother of all living”.  We were created to bring life!

John 15:13 No one has greater love [nor stronger commitment] than to lay down his own life for his friends.

In this verse we can see Jesus giving his life for us. Such is his love and commitment to the Father first and then to us. That same love is manifested in the heart of a mother, who is committed.  So if for some time you felt as if you were giving your life for your children and have been from the first day committed to their welfare, feel blessed because you have the strength in you to carry out that task.

5 Bible Verses that will make you stronger as a Mom 2

2 Corinthians 12:10 
So I am well pleased with weaknesses, with insults, with distresses, with persecutions, and with difficulties, for the sake of Christ; for when I am weak [in human strength], then I am strong [truly able, truly powerful, truly drawing from God’s strength].

There is no better way to renew our strength than to declare ourselves strong in God. For the task of being mothers, wives, businesswomen among others, we need to take the strength of God to efficiently fulfill each task.  Declare yourself strong in Christ!

Proverbs 31:10 An excellent woman [one who is spiritual, capable, intelligent, and virtuous], who is he who can find her? Her value is more precious than jewels and her worth is far above rubies or pearls.

This is one of my favorites verses, because it shows us the way of the wise woman, which is spiritual.  A woman who is spiritual is because takes her time to spend time with the Lord, asking for guidance and direction.  You are valuable more than jewels, rubies and pearls.  That value comes from the Lord, don’t forget it!

What will make you stronger? 

  • Remember that you have a purpose.
  • Remember you was created to give life.
  • Remember your love and commitment is example for Jesus loves for us.
  • Remember to declare your are strong in the Lord.
  • Remember to spend time with God. 
  • Remember you are valuable.

“Just look at yourselves, brothers—look at those whom God has called! Not many of you are wise by the world’s standards, not many wield power or boast noble birth. But God chose what the world considers nonsense in order to shame the wise; God chose what the world considers weak in order to shame the strong; and God chose what the world looks down on as common or regards as nothing in order to bring to nothing what the world considers important; so that no one should boast before God.” 1 Corinthians 1:26-29 CJB

Have you ever asked yourself, “Who am I that God should use me, honor me, love me? Who am I that God should call me, choose me, favor me? Have you ever disqualified yourself from the destiny God called you to because you did not think that you were packaged right … because you did not come from the “right” family, city/town/village, background … because you have just enough money to survive and cannot even imagine financing the giant dream He is urging you to pursue? Have you? I know I have.

So did Gideon. The LORD said to him, “Go in this strength of yours and save Isra’el from the hands of Midyan. Haven’t I sent you?” Judges 6:14 CJB. Gideon’s natural reaction was, “Forgive me, my Lord, but with what am I to save Isra’el? Why, my family is the poorest in M’nasheh, and I’m the youngest person in my father’s house!” Judges 6:15 CJB

When God commissions us, it is not us neither would it be done in our ability and strength. The LORD assures Gideon, “Because I will be with you, you will strike down Midyan as easily as if they were just one man.” Judges 6:16 CJB

YHVH will be with us and will enable us to succeed and complete every task that He has assigned to us.

For it is “… ‘not by force, and not by power, but by my Spirit, ‘says ADONAI-Tzva’ot.” Zechariah 4:6 CJB

The LORD is well known for mandating the unfits and misfits of this world to do great things. He always finds strength in the weakest places. Let us realign our outlook, accept the mandate, trust that He is able and walk in obedience.

3 Lies the Enemy Tells You and the TRUTH that Will Set You Free

3 lies the enemy tells you and the truth that will set you free

“I have nothing to offer.”

How many of us wonder, “What do I have to give, Lord?”

“Not that we are competent in ourselves to claim anything for ourselves, but our competence comes from God.”  2 Corinthians 3:5

1 – The TRUTH is that it’s Christ in us that offers value to others! Instead of saying, “God, use me,” ask Him, “God, work through me!”

You ARE worthy and more than ENOUGH for God to use! Besides, God is the great multiplier. Remember the story of the two fish and five loaves of bread (Matthew 14:13-21)? Jesus took that and fed over 5,000 people!

God just wants a willing heart. He uses unworthy people to do big things, like Moses. He felt like he had nothing to offer, but God used him in a huge way! He’ll use you too!

“Moses said, ‘Who am I that I should go to Pharaoh and bring the Israelites out of Egypt?’” Exodus 3:11

“The opposite of what I say will happen.”

Ever heard someone say, “Don’t jinx yourself!”or “Knock on wood!”?

2 – The TRUTH is your words are powerful, creative forces that build up or tear down. What you speak about, you bring about, not the other way around.

3 lies the enemy tells you and the truth that will set you free 2

Our words are seeds. We plant seeds with positive affirmations: “Today will be great!” Or, we can dig up our flowers with negative phrases: “It’ll never happen.” As author and speaker Terri Savelle Foy says, “When you change what you’re saying, you’ll change what you’re seeing.”

“You will also declare a thing, and it will be established for you.” Job 22:28

“She’s further along so I must be doing something wrong.”

Have you ever noticed someone who appears to have it all together and found yourself comparing your progress to their success?

3 – The TRUTH is it’s okay to stay in your lane, even if people are passing you. Getting in someone else’s lane because they’re going faster, may cause you to miss your turn and get lost. Your destination is not the same as theirs.

Your story matters. If you skip from step A to step Z, you’ll miss learning everything you needed to learn in order to maintain your progress. There are people waiting on the other side of your unique journey. Keep going, dear friend.

“For we know that [problems and trials] help us develop endurance. Endurance develops strength of character, and character strengthens our confident hope of salvation. This hope will not lead to disappointment.” Romans 5:3-5

Putting on the New Self

Putting on a New Self

My focus is on putting on the new self as mentioned in Colossians 3:10.

Let us examine Colossians chapter 3:1-17. Let’s begin with verses 1-4,

“If then you have been raised with Christ, seek the things that are above, where Christ is, seated at the right hand of God.  Set your minds on things that are above, not on things that are on earth.  For you have died, and your life is hidden with Christ in God.  When Christ who is your life appears, then you also will appear with him in glory” (ESV).

There is a lot here. First, take a look at the ‘If then.’ I think of this the same way I do the ‘therefore.’ It implies a connection with what came before this chapter. Looking back at chapter 2 it is verses 5 -7 that grab my focus. Colossians 2:5-6,

“For though I am absent in body, yet I am with you in spirit, rejoicing to see your good order and the firmness of your faith in Christ. Therefore, as you received Christ Jesus the Lord, so walk in him, rooted and built up in him and established in the faith, just as you were taught, abounding in thanksgiving.”

Paul is expressing to the Colossians his feelings for them as they persevere in faith. They are rooted and built up in Christ for this Paul rejoices. This is what brings us to the ‘If then.’  Being rooted and established in our faith in Christ, we are to seek things that are above and set our minds on higher things.

For our lives are hidden in Christ with God. Hidden means kept out of sight; concealed. Set means put, lay, or stand (something) in a specified place or position.

Putting on a New Self 2

Our Part

In conclusion, we are to put, lay, or stand our minds on things that are above (higher things, Isaiah 55:8-9) because we are concealed in Christ with God. Christ is our life. In Him we move and have our being (Acts 17:28).

It takes discipline to set our minds on things above but we are not helpless. For we have the help of the Holy Spirit to become disciplined disciples of Jesus. In doing so all things will grow strangely dim. And through our trials we will prevail for greater is He that is in us than he that is in the world.

What do you need to do to set your mind on things above and not on earthly things? What things are your setting your mind on?
