We all want to be a Godly woman who would give up everything in her life to serve the Lord instead. She would have some flaws too, but being imperfect lets her turn to God and seek His guidance. In Proverbs 31, the scripture has explained everything a woman could ever imagine to be. An amazing goal in life is not just to live a life of success, but to be a woman as exactly described in that verse. Don’t you wish you have those characteristics, too? We will now know some of the characteristics of a Godly woman.
She reads the Bible and has a familiar sense of God’s word.
She tries to live up to the word of God in her actions, thoughts, and words. Having this kind of characteristic does not mean you blurb out scriptures to anybody to prove that you had memorized it or know about it. Instead, it is better to be a woman who has faith and pairs it with action.
She seeks God first and foremost.
A Godly woman knows that only God is the answer. She does not rely on other things aside from that, as she believes that God is superior and nothing is impossible through Him. As quoted from Matthew 6:33-34, “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.”
She knows her worth as she is made by God.
One of our favorite Proverbs 31 verses is this: “Charm is deceitful and beauty is vain, but a woman who fears the LORD, she shall be praised.” She knows that she does not need those expensive jewelry and designer clothes to make her know her worth. This is in a sense that a Godly woman knows that she is beautifully crafted by the Master and it is better to beautify the personality than the body which will eventually deteriorate with time.
She is selfless and thinks of others first.
She would rather serve others and the Lord than herself. She is generous of what she has because she thinks of herself less. She never holds back because she knows that God abundantly gives back everything she gave away. She knows that through a woman’s ministry, God is pleased with her.
She forgives easily.
A woman like this knows that everyone commits mistakes and deserves a chance of forgiveness. She knows that we were all unconditionally forgiven by God despite all our mistakes and shortcoming. Though it may hurt, she chose to forgive anyway because time heals every scar that was placed in her humble heart.
She knows that everything comes in perfect timing with God’s will.
She trusts in the Lord that everything happens for a reason. For that, she patiently waits for what may happen, as she knows that God only has the best things in store for her.
