Being a Woman After God's Heart

As we shift our focus from Father's Day, we pause today to reflect on God's design for women. In a world filled with shifting values about womanhood, and so many conflcting messages, what does God say? The essence of a Godly woman encompasses strength, grace, wisdom, and a deep sense of purpose.

Grace and Compassion

Grace is a hallmark of a woman of God. This grace manifests in kindness, patience, and a willingness to forgive. Jesus Christ, throughout His ministry, demonstrated unparalleled grace, offering love and forgiveness to all. For a woman of God, embodying this grace means treating others with compassion and understanding, showing love in action, and being a source of comfort and encouragement.

Wisdom and Discernment

Wisdom is another vital characteristic of a Godly woman. This wisdom goes beyond intellectual knowledge; it is about discernment and the ability to make sound decisions based on Biblical principles. In James 1:5, believers are encouraged to seek wisdom from God, who gives generously to all. A woman of God seeks this divine wisdom, allowing it to guide her in her relationships, career, and daily life.

Purpose and Calling

What is your purpose? Ephesians 2:10 says "For we are God’s handiwork, created in Christ Jesus to do good works, which God prepared in advance for us to do." Living with a sense of purpose is essential for a woman of God. Dallas Willard emphasized the importance of living in accordance with God’s will and finding one’s purpose in His greater plan. A Godly woman actively seeks to understand and fulfill her calling, whether it be in her family, community, or professional life, always striving to glorify God in all she does.

Embracing True Beauty

Stasi Eldredge, co-author of "Captivating," emphasizes that true beauty is found in a woman’s heart. According to Stasi, a woman of God reflects God’s beauty through her love, kindness, and compassion. This beauty is not about outward appearance but about a heart that is aligned with God’s will. A woman of God nurtures her inner beauty by spending time in the company of God and a community of women.

Healing and Restoration

The journey of healing and restoration that many women experience is central to a woman's journey with God. A woman of God allows God to heal her wounds, transform her past hurts, and restore her to wholeness. This process of healing empowers her to live fully and freely, reflecting God’s redemptive power in her life. By embracing God’s healing, she can help others find their path to restoration, offering hope and encouragement.

Anchored in God’s Love

Being deeply anchored in the love of God is also a factor in a woman's spirtual life. This love is her foundation and the source of her identity. It provides her with a sense of security and peace, knowing that she is cherished by her Creator. This love empowers her to love others selflessly and to live a life that reflects God’s goodness and mercy.
