A Woman of Faith
There’s something to be said about a fearless Christian woman. A fearless Christian woman is a woman of faith. Satan can do nothing with her. With all of the chaos that’s going on in the world around her, she has chosen to not be moved; setting her face like a flint (Isaiah 50:7).
She has grasped the understanding that as a child of God, afflictions will come. Persecutions, trials, and tribulations will come (1 Peter 4:12,13). But God has given her a measure of faith that she intends to use.
So, while not leaning to her own understanding of things, she has made the conscious decision to trust in the Lord with all of her heart. She has chosen to acknowledge Him in all of her ways so that He can direct her paths (Proverbs 3:5,6).
Prayer has become her way of life. Her anchor? The tried and true Word of God (Psalm 18:30).
There is a good and a bad to everything (Ecclesiastes 3). In today’s society, where the world strives to remove all traces of God (which is impossible seeing that He created everything), women being fearless is depicted as women who stand up for the right to do whatever they want when they want. These are women who fight to leave their mark on the world; having their voices heard; making themselves known.
But a fearless Christian woman seeks to only make One person known. That person is Jesus Christ. She doesn’t seek to have her voice heard or known. She seeks to follow and to know His voice (John 10:4,5). For He is the Source of everything to her (Philippians 4:19). She stands for the Truth even if it means that she will have to stand alone (John 8:32,36).
As Christian women, it can never be said that we do not ever have moments that we battle with fear. We do. There are times that we get caught up in walking by sight and not by faith (2 Corinthians 5:7). There are times that we allow our circumstances to hold us back, rather than continuing to press ahead. We become all but fearless.
Yet because of our faith in God, we know, trust, and believe that all things work for the good of those who love God and are the called according to His purpose (Roman 8:28).
“Faith is a decision to believe.”
