The Bible has a lot to say about the role of women in serving God. In Proverbs 31: 30 we read, “Favor is deceitful, and beauty is vain: but a woman that feareth the Lord, she shall be praised.”
A woman who is God-fearing is a blessing to those she comes into contact with.
Friends, family, strangers and acquaintances can feel the love of God radiating from her.
This provides unlimited blessing to her and everyone else. A God-fearing woman can often be the only thing that pulls her family through a difficult time.
Each of us is born with a space in our hearts that only God can fill. If we attempt to fill that space with anything else, we usually end up on the path of self-destruction.
The God-fearing woman is a beacon who motivates those around her to seek the will of God for their lives.
Here are some key points to remember in order to be a woman who radiates the love of Christ:
The God fearing Woman Prays Unceasingly
The God-fearing woman must always be in communication with God.
Communication builds relationship.
When we are continuously talking to God, we will always hear his voice. It will be easy to drown out all the negative voices that try to speak to us. This means that we should pray when we are going about our everyday activities.
Prayer does not have to be long-winded. It can be simple and done in the silence of our hearts.
The Bible admonishes us to pray unceasing. A God-fearing woman knows the power of prayer.
The God fearing Woman Leads by Example
A God-fearing woman must lead by example. This means that people should see the love of Jesus radiating in her thoughts and in her actions.
This is far more effective than just telling people about the love she has for Jesus.
God-fearing women are more than hearers of the word, they are doers of the word. Loving actions have the power to melt any heart that has been hardened by sin.
The God fearing Woman Create God-Fearing Girls
Women of God should seek to mentor young girls. There is an old saying, “As the twig is bent so the tree is inclined” this simply means that Christian women should be a witness to young girls.
This means that they should point young women in the right direction from very early.
This helps them to have a defined set of principles that cannot be eroded by any form of negative peer pressure. The God-fearing women in a church community are crucial to turning God-fearing girls into God-fearing women.
The God fearing Woman Displays Obedience
The power of a God-fearing woman is clearly shown in the life of Mary the mother of Jesus.
When she was told that the Holy Spirit would overshadow her and she would conceive Jesus, she simply replied, “I am the handmaid of the Lord; be it unto me according to thy word.”
The God-fearing woman does not question the will of God, she simply obeys even when that obedience comes with great personal sacrifice.
