There were women in the Bible who were very important, as is the case with Esther, who saved all her Jewish people, or Mary, the mother of Jesus, who carried the Son of God in her womb. Here we share Seven incredible phrases of women in the Bible.
Seven Inspirational Quotes from Biblical Women
1. Rebecca: I will go
This “I will go” may seem simple, but it is not, since we are talking about Rebekah accepting God’s plan for her life, to be the wife of Isaac, who would be the father of Jacob, in whom all nations from the earth would be blessed. That “yes, I will go” represents a high level of faith in the Lord to leave everything behind to do his will. We urge you to read the entire chapter 24:
58 And they called Rebekah, and said unto her, Wilt thou go with this man? And she said, I will go.
59 And they sent away Rebekah their sister, and her nurse, and Abraham’s servant, and his men.
2. Leah: Now will I praise the Lord
Leah, Jacob’s wife, was a long-suffering woman, despised by her own husband and by Rachel, Jacob’s other wife. Judah was the fourth child that God gave to Leah, and since God’s plans are wonderful, Leah conceived the two largest tribes, Levi, the priestly tribe, and Judah, the royal tribe.
And she conceived again, and bare a son: and she said, Now will I praise the Lord: therefore she called his name Judah; and left bearing.
3. Ruth: Your people will be my people, and your God my God
The story narrated there in chapter 1 of Ruth is quite sad. Naomi had lost his children, for which they had left his wives widowed, among whom was Ruth. Her mother-in-law released them, but Ruth, seeing her pain, preferred not to leave her alone, but to be with her at all times.
And Ruth said, Intreat me not to leave thee, or to return from following after thee: for whither thou goest, I will go; and where thou lodgest, I will lodge: thy people shall be my people, and thy God my God:
4. Hannah: My heart rejoices in the Lord
These words belong to Hannah’s song in 1 Samuel 2, where Hannah gives glory to God for her answered prayer to conceive a child. Ana’s suffering was great because of the bitterness of not giving Elkanah a son, but she saw how the hand of God extended towards her and she was able to rejoice in the Lord.
And Hannah prayed, and said, My heart rejoiceth in the Lord, mine horn is exalted in the Lord: my mouth is enlarged over mine enemies; because I rejoice in thy salvation.
1 Samuel 2:1
5. Mary: Let it be to me according to your word
Mary was receiving the message from the angel of the Lord that in her womb she would carry the Son of God, who would bring salvation to all mankind.
And Mary said, Behold the handmaid of the Lord; be it unto me according to thy word. And the angel departed from her.
6. Elizabeth: Blessed is she who believed…
Elizabeth was encouraging Mary for being a woman of faith, that’s why she calls her blessed, because Mary believed in the Word of the Lord.
And blessed is she that believed: for there shall be a performance of those things which were told her from the Lord.
7. The woman with the issue of blood: If I may touch but his clothes, I shall be whole
This woman knew that Jesus of Nazareth was powerful enough to do a job in her that was impossible for doctors to do. She knew that she only had to reach out and she would receive the miracle from Him.
For she said, If I may touch but his clothes, I shall be whole.
These are just some examples of women in the Bible who had great faith, which can help us a lot in our faith and walk with the Lord. Let us always trust in the Lord like those women of God.
