I have heard this question at bible studies over the years "How do I become a Godly Woman?" We are always searching high and low. There is always this earnest heart to want to know more. To have the anwers. But over time as we seek, we grow. He refines us to be more like Him.
I cannot be the girl I need to be without constant reminders. I need accountability and I love others who can come beside me and encourage me. It makes you want to share your life and heart more. Here are a few thoughts with corresponding verses.
GOD NEEDS TO BE FIRST IN MY LIFE : I can get caught up in the lies that other things will satisfy. But they really have not.
“But seek first His kingdom and His righteousness, and all these things will be added to you. So do not worry about tomorrow; for tomorrow will care for itself. Each day has enough trouble of its own.” – Matthew 6:33-34
SHOW OTHERS WHAT BEAUTY IS:
Bodies deteriorate, persons develop. Invest in that which lasts.
Charm is deceitful and beauty is vain, but a woman who fears the LORD, she shall be praised. – Proverbs 31:30
Love others with godly wisdom, kindness and boldness.
Then the LORD God said, “It is not good for the man to be alone; I will make him a helper suitable for him.” – Genesis 2:18
Better is open rebuke than love that is concealed. Faithful are the wounds of a friend, but deceitful are the kisses of an enemy. – Proverbs 27:5-6
Open your mouth for the mute, for the rights of all the unfortunate. Open your mouth, judge righteously, and defend the rights of the afflicted and needy. – Proverbs 31:8-9
She opens her mouth in wisdom, and the teaching of kindness is on her tongue. –Proverbs 31:26
Don’t think less of yourself but think of yourself less. Im sure you have heard that before, but it is so true.
“Has not my hand made all these things, and so they came into being?” declares the LORD. “These arc the ones I look on with favor: those who are humble and contrite in spirit, and who tremble at my word.” – Isaiah 66:2
Do nothing from selfishness or empty conceit, but with humility of mind regard one another as more important than yourselves; do not merely look out for your own personal interests, but also for the interests of others. Have this attitude in yourselves which was also in Christ Jesus. – Philippians 2:3-5
Set your mind on eternal things.
“He who loves his life loses it, and he who hates his life in this world will keep it to life eternal. If anyone serves Me, he must follow Me; and where I am, there My servant will be also; if anyone serves Me, the Father will honor him.” – John 12:25-26
For am I now seeking the favor of men, or of God? Or am I striving to please men? If I were still trying to please men, I would not be a bond-servant of Christ. – Galatians 1:10
Whatever you do, do your work heartily, as for the Lord rather than for men. –Colossians 3:23
I believe there is no “one fits all” answer to "How do I become a Godly Woman? " We are all on our own journey towards being the Woman of God He intends us to be. If only we take courage and seek Him, He’ll direct us.
