How will a woman of God stand out among the crowd when women are put in the spotlight? What are the traits of a God-fearing woman who has nothing to fear? The challenge lies in living by God’s word despite the world’s possible persecution.
Women in this day and age are way too different from what they were back then. The world had somehow progressed from telling women to stay in the kitchen to women climbing the corporate ladder and even aiming for political power.
Even author Yelena Borichevska believes that being a woman of God means letting Him take the lead role and write the story of our lives.
So what does it mean to be a modern-day woman of God?
Commits to the Word
Knowing who God is by dedicating time and effort to studying the Bible is one way of committing to following the Lord’s commands. The Bible contains wisdom that is very useful for every Christian woman seeking answers to questions the world wouldn’t know about. Immersing in the words of truth spoken by the Lord is a great way to look at life from His point of view and maybe, understand His plans for every person.
Follows God’s Beauty Standards
The world is no stranger to specific beauty standards that may or may not harm many women—slim and slender body shape, Eurocentric features, physical implants, and so forth. Women out there are obsessed with attaining the perfect appearance for specific reasons. It could be deep-seated insecurity or envy.
But for a Christian woman, being secure in your beauty takes a different level of confidence that stems from loving God and living a life that pleases Him. It says in 1 Peter 3:4, “But let your adorning be the hidden person of the heart with the imperishable beauty of a gentle and quiet spirit, which in God’s sight is very precious.”
This is the standard that Christian women must follow, especially regarding body image and perception of beauty. The Lord made each person fearfully and wonderfully, so what is there to be disheartened about?
Chooses the Right Company
Everyone is wired to connect with other people. Humans do best by having conversations, copying mannerisms, and other forms of expression. This is why it’s important to remember that “bad company corrupts good character.” (-1 Corinthians 15:33) Because the people we let into our lives will affect how we see the world.
Every woman must look for someone worthy of respect due to their fear and faithfulness in the Lord. Titus 2:3-4 said, “Older women likewise are to be reverent in their behavior, not slanderers or enslaved people to much wine. They are to teach what is good and train young women to love their husbands and children.”
As fellow sisters in Christ, it is a two-way thing that they should act respectable and be someone who bears the fruit of the Holy Spirit. Being around strong, empowered Godly women. They can guide, give good advice and personally pray for one another.
Being a Modern Godly Woman
The journey to Godly womanhood doesn’t have to be done alone. Being a woman who lives in purity and reverence will be a struggle without fellow Christian women lifting each other in prayer and guidance. Turning to other resources that support the Bible is very important for any Godly woman to gain more wisdom.
A modern-day woman of God will never allow herself to indulge in worldly pleasures that won’t bring glory to God. She continues to fill herself with pure thoughts, speak with caution and live a life according to the Scripture. Being a modern-day woman of God that keeps up with her appearances but makes sure to keep it modest is a woman worthy of respect.
A modern-day woman of God showing kindness, gentle strength, and wisdom in her everyday life is someone worth emanating. It may not be the same as what the world expects a woman to be at this age, but being a lady guided by the Holy Spirit’s convictions will go further and live a life pleasing to the Lord.
