Defining Your Noble Character Part I. 8
CALL ME WOMAN
In repose to the angel Gabriel, Mary a brave young woman of God, demonstrates great humility and purpose. (Luke 1:26-38)
“Behold, I am the servant of the Lord; let it be to me according to your word.” (Luke 1:38)
As women of faith in Jesus Christ we are enlightened to live a life for Him and with Him. We learn this through His Word and we are led by the Holy Spirit.
If your roll as woman seems unclear at times and you’re just not ready to except the roll of submission, take hart and have faith in God’s word. Although your desire will remain for the position of your husband (Genesis 3:16b), trust that God will see you through this virtue of submission. It is far better to be in the will of the Lord then to reject his blessings.
But I want you to understand that the head of every man is Christ, the head of a wife is her husband, and the head of Christ is God. (1 Corinthians 11:3)
- Would you agree, to be called woman is to be respected?
- Do a word search for ‘WOMAN’ in your Bible.
- Do you find a woman of strength?
- Is there an example of gentleness?
- How would you describe your roll as woman to your children?
Charm is deceitful, and beauty is vain, but a woman who fears the LORD is to be praised. (Proverbs 31:30)
Lets get ready for Proverbs 31:10-31
Like the fruits of the Spirit are many so are the virtues of a noble woman.
Take some time to reflect on the past lessons and see if you are ready to begin this journey. My hope has been that you see yourself as God sees you, not as the world sees you.
Believe that you are more than capable to adorn yourself with the many virtues found in the Proverbs. You are called a woman of God, you are ready to take on many of the most importuned rolls a woman is blessed to partake in; a wife, a mother, a friend, a business woman, a leader and so much more. Once you except your place as a woman of God I truly believe that he will bless you abundantly with the virtues he has in line for you.
