What is your value as a woman? Today there are still cultures where the woman is seen as an inferior being, where they have no rights and must be under the yoke of man. Even in the Western world, where women are supposed to have the same opportunities as men, they are oppressed in one way or another.
In addition to the above, there may be situations in the life of a woman where she feels at least and wants to find support to give herself value as a woman. Therefore, in this article we bring about seven verses that will help women understand their value as a woman.
You are a daughter of God
If you are reading this article, there is a high probability that you believe in God. If you believe in God, we have good news with the following Bible verse:
Yet to all who did receive him, to those who believed in his name, he gave the right to become children of God.
If you have received God, then you are a daughter of God, and that is a great privilege. You are a daughter, not begotten of blood, nor of the will of the flesh, nor of the will of man, but of God. That is the most important value you have.
You are creation of God
We are God’s creation and as His creation, He has designed a plan for each one of us:
For we are God’s handiwork, created in Christ Jesus to do good works, which God prepared in advance for us to do.
Is not it wonderful to think that long before the foundation of the world God already thought of you and a plan for you? You were created by Him to walk in His good works, and that is something very wonderful.
As God’s creation, you are beautiful, because all that God created, He made it good:
You are altogether beautiful, my darling;
there is no flaw in you.
Song of Songs 4:7
You are blessed
In Mary’s visit to Elizabeth when she was pregnant, the baby inside Elisabet jumped when she heard Mary’s greeting and Elizabeth was filled with the Holy Spirit. Then Elizabeth blessed Mary and said the following:
Blessed is she who has believed that the Lord would fulfill his promises to her!
Have you believed in the promises of the Lord? God promises and fulfills, as the verse we saw above says.
You will be praised
There is no better thing than having the good qualities that were mentioned above and also fear our God.
Charm is deceptive, and beauty is fleeting;
but a woman who fears the Lord is to be praised.
It must be a great joy to be in the ways of the Lord. Woman, you have the great privilege of being a woman and serving God.
You will have honor
In proverbs 11:16 is talked about of a kindhearted woman, and what is a kindhearted woman? It is a woman that reaches favor before God and before humans. And, what happens with the kindhearted woman?
A kindhearted woman gains honor,
but ruthless men gain only wealth.
The graceful woman will be honored.
