When God created woman, He made a very special creation. He made us beautiful and unique. He made us strong and resilient, gutsy and spirited, sassy and sweet. And He loves us. God really, really loves His girls. And the Bible is filled with many women – some good, some bad – all of who God made, who God loved, and who we can learn many lessons from.
So far in our Women of the Word series, we have looked at 70 different figures in the Bible, who all have something to teach us (drum roll, please). Here is our seventh series recap:
- The Shunammite woman had the spirit of a servant, was content with her life, and would not leave.
- The possessed slave girl was not only in bondage to her human masters, but also in bondage to Satan.
- Solomon’s wives and concubines turned his heart from the Lord.
- The Syro-Phoenician woman showed her faith; the Syro-Phoenician woman’s daughter benefited from her mother’s faith.
- Like Jarius’ daughter, Jesus the Christ bids us all arise.
- Tamar cared for others despite her high rank; had her beauty to be a snare to her; was a victim to lust, not love; and suffered for someone else’s sin.
- Vashti was disobedient and is an example of how we are God’s queen, joint-heirs of an eternal kingdom.
- Many Christian women from Acts 8:3 were courageous in the midst of pain and persecution.
- The widow of Zarephath was chosen by God, was about to give in to despair; but was obedient and was blessed.
- The widow with the oil obeyed in faith and had to trust God for herself.
