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
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.
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.
…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!
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!
