7.  A godly woman desires to receive vision from God that will give her a glimpse into her future.  Based on this revelation, God shows her as she continues to pray and seek God for the most direct route to begin fulfilling that vision she receives.  The vision is her guiding force in determining  that she stays on the right path.

“Enter ye in at the strait gate: for wide is the gate, and broad is the way, that leadeth to destruction, and many there be which go in thereat:”  (Matthew 7:13)  Jesus is telling us that it is easy to start in the Christian life and many do start but the temptations that can cause you to fall astray are so great that you must have a narrow focus.  The vision God gives you keeps your focus narrow.  We cannot entertain any of the devil’s sinful pleasures.  “For all that is in the world, the lust of the flesh, and the lust of the eyes, and the pride of life, is not of the Father, but is of the world.”  (1 John 2:16)  Receiving a vision from God about your purpose will aid you in identifying the tricks of the enemy.  God’s way is holy.  Holiness is portrayed in the way we obey God’s law.  God always gives vision that coincides with righteousness and self abasement that helps fellow man and brings Him glory.

6.  A godly woman has courage to be herself in all situations.  She never compromises her godly values and teachings to fit in with her surroundings.  She is faithful to God at all times.  God commanded Joshua, “Be strong and of a good courage:  for unto this people shalt thou divide for an inheritance the land, which I sware unto their fathers to give them.  Only be thou strong and very courageous, that thou mayest observe to do according to all the law…”  (Joshua 1:6-7)  The condition which God sets to give the people the land is if Joshua is strong, courageous and observe all the law.  A lot of times we miss what God is trying to do for us because we lack courage.  God will speak to us or reveal something he wants us to do or say and it takes courage to go through the motion because we look at our own ability.  Know this, what God is going to ask you to do will usually be something that you are not used to doing, that’s why He gets the glory.  Because you have to lean and depend on him for direction and strength.  He knows that if He doesn’t give you the courage to actually go forward you will remain in a stagnant state.

Due to Joshua’s courage, God was able to use Him to win mighty victories.  He conquered major cities that gave him strategic military advantages, through his silence and obedience God caused the walls of Jericho to fall and win the battle (Joshua 6:20) and one of the greatest miracles, God made the sun stand still for an entire day so Israel could win the battle (Joshua 10:13-14).

Take note, the Lord will cause your enemies’ hearts to become harden, like Pharoah, so he can manifest courage in you and do great exploits through you.

5.  A godly woman’s strength is demonstrated during times of difficult tests.  When things in life seem heavy to bear or people don’t understand how she can maintain joy and peace in God, she confesses that the “joy of the Lord is my strength”.  The strength she receives from God causes her to remain devoted and committed to God’s will and purpose when she feels most weak and vulnerable.  The apostle Peter cautions us to “be sober, be vigilant; because your adversary the devil, as a roaring lion, walketh about, seeking whom He may devour: whom resist stedfast in the faith…” (I Peter 5:8-9a)
Maintaining your spiritual strength is like working your muscles at the gym.  The only way to gain muscle mass is to lift weights.  You may start out with little victories, but “who hath despised the day of small things”  (Zechariah 4:10)

After the apostle Paul completes his teaching to the newly converted saints at Ephesus he exhorts them with one final thought, “Finally, my brethren, be strong in the Lord, and in the power of His might” .  (Ephesians 6:10)  This signifies that strength in God is the key to survive spiritual warfare.  We didn’t “come over here to stay Lord ’til I die”, but we are commanded to fight as Christian soldiers the good fight of faith so that we can hear Him say “Well done, thou good and faithful servant” enter into the joy of the Lord.

4.  A godly woman is bold in her approach to fulfilling the will of God in her life.  She is not offensive as to hurt others feelings but she is not afraid to do or go where God commands her to go.  Her boldness rises when others may have a draw back spirit or are afraid of what others may think of them.  The boldness that God develops in her causes her to step out of shadows of others and cliques.  She can walk on her own because she is only dependent on God.  Through direct communication with God, the Holy Spirit unctions and she obeys quickly even if its unfamiliar territory because she knows the truth.

“But ye have an unction from the Holy One, and ye know all things”. 1 John 2:20

3.  A godly woman is convinced that God cannot fail.  She seeks Him and goes to Him in every situation in her life because she believes without a doubt that God is on her side, she has victory in every area of her life and that the schemes of the devil will not prosper.  You many be in an abusive relationship, troubled marriage or may feel like ending your life, but if you can just accept that God loves you, He created you with a purpose in mind and that with every temptation He provides a way of escape.

“There hath no temptation taken you but such as is common to man: but God is faithful, who will not suffer you to be tempted above that ye are able ; but will with the temptation also make a way to escape, that ye may be able to bear it.” 1 Cor 10:13

This means that what you’re going through is not new.  Somebody else, somewhere else has been through and overcome.  You are not the only one and God is not picking on you.  The devil is an accuser of us because he is jealous that God is still offering us forgiveness while he has been sentenced to death.   But God is faithful that even in our suffering He has not left us comfortless. He will only allow us to remain in the boiling pot for a moment. With every temptation He has made a way of escape that we can look back and say “I see God has brought me through yet again”.

2.   A Godly woman trusts in God’s word.  Through prayer she is sure that God is always involved in her affairs.  I know that sounds hard to believe sometimes because we feel like God has left us when times get hard but we must maintain confidence in God that He is always “…working things together for our good to them that love God, to them who are the called according to His purpose.” Rom 8:28.  Her confidence is never in her own abilities and strength for she knows that without the anointing of the Holy Spirit she can do nothing.

Another aspect from the word confidence is the root word “confide.”  To confide in someone is to have the trust to know what I tell you will remain between you and me.  A godly woman knows whatever is bothering her in her inner most that she may not be able to tell anyone else (for fear of them thinking about her differently)  she can tell God and her secret struggles will remain silent.  She can totally release her vulnerabilities in prayer and meditation because God never rebukes her for being honest but comforts and strengthens her in those areas she weakest.  He builds an enclosure of love to protect her while He’s helping her to overcome temptations and failures.

  1. A Godly woman must understand and know her purpose from God.  She has spent time in prayer and studying God’s word to know what God has deemed for her corporately and individually.  Some of woman’s corporate responsibilities are to raise children, maintain learning and loving environment in the home, help her husband maintain the vision God has given them for their home but in addition to that she has individual gifts and callings that are specific to her character.  These gifts must be developed and used by God for the woman to feel like she is valuable and useful.  She understands that she must seek God for wisdom so she doesn’t get caught in the ideals of what other people think of her.
