A Woman of Faith


My band of women who are studying about the armor of God and how to use these pieces are nearing the end of our study. It has been such a blessing to me and I’ve loved getting to know my fellow co-workers on a much deeper level.


DSC00374In yesterday’s session, we learned what it means to be a woman of faith. I want to share these thoughts with you from Priscilla Shirer.


First we must live our lives with an unwavering confidence in God and His promises. Trust. We must trust that what God said in the past and what He did in the past are examples of who He is and glimpses into His character. We can trust what God says to be true. And then we can live according to that confidence.


Next we must walk forward in accordance to the truth found in God’s Word. That means we must align our lives up with what God has to say about this life. We can’t pick and choose what best fits with our thinking or lifestyle or desires. We must walk in confidence in His truth. All of His truth.


And then we must push past doubts and fears that seem to paralyze us. As a woman of faith, these doubts and fears have no place in our lives. We must trust that God knows where He is leading us and then follow Him.


Now I’m not saying these are easy tasks. But what I might suggest is that you take one step closer to being a woman of faith today. Choose one area in which you can fully trust and lean upon God. And then tomorrow, add another. And the next day, yet another area. You see, becoming a woman of faith is a journey. But it’s not a lonely journey. God will be with you the whole way.


If you are looking for a few more practical ways to become a woman of faith, take a look at Hebrews 11, the Hall of Faith. As you read through each of these biblical heroes of faith, note how their faith was at work in their lives. And then, apply it to your own life.


Okay men, don’t think this is just for the ladies. This applies to your life as well. Becoming a man of faith is such a testimony to those around you. Take the challenge. Accept the task. And then, do it.


I’ll be praying for you today. If you have a specific prayer request, please don’t hesitate to share it. I would love to join you at the throne of God with prayers and petitions.


Grace and peace be yours in abundance,
