While they may have initially had their flaws, they were really incredible women because of the amazing faith they had that turned them into something amazing for God.
These are the Biblical women. Who were they? Is there some historic archaeology that we could use to learn more about their existence?
Faith in our beautiful Lord is like the fuel that can give energy to the most amazing transformation for the Lord.
It’s also like a spark that can light up the most catching fire in the dry forest of our minds and souls. And these women knew it.
If these women could be something amazing and great for our Lord, so can you. Here are 10 of the best quotes by Biblical women that you must know and use to “fuel” yourself all the time, every single day.
Esther 4:16:“Go, gather together all the Jews who are in Susa, and fast for me. Do not eat or drink for three days, night or day. I and my attendants will fast as you do. When this is done, I will go to the king, even though it is against the law. And if I perish, I perish.”
We begin this Godly women quotes post with my favorite, Queen Esther. Aside from being really beautiful, Esther knew the importance of doing God’s will, even if it meant death.
How many women, wives, mothers, could do the same for our beloved Lord?
As you see in her signature line, “If I perish, I perish”, you can clearly visualize she saw how important it was to perform God’s will regardless of ANYTHING. If there’s something you can learn from her. It’s this.
“If you have judged me to be faithful to the Lord, come and stay at my home.” And she prevailed upon us.” (NRSV)
Although her mention in the Bible was short, it was powerful. We can easily get a look at how humble and beautiful her heart was when she says” “If you have judged me to be faithful to the Lord”. Lydia knew the importance of becoming a woman that God is pleased with.
3. Martha, sister of Lazarus
21 “Lord,” Martha said to Jesus, “if you had been here, my brother would not have died. 22 But I know that even now God will give you whatever you ask.”
The Bible says our Lord loved Martha and Lazarus. What a privilege to be loved by the Lord.
Have you ever had to deal with the death of a loved one? She is so important to these series of quotes because even though her brother died, she still trusted our Lord Jesus. She knew his power, his divinity, and his faithfulness and CHOSE to trust Him.
We must all learn from the beloved Martha.
We find out more about her unwavering faith in the continuing passages, which say:
25 Jesus said to her, “I am the resurrection and the life. The one who believes in me will live, even though they die; 26 and whoever lives by believing in me will never die. Do you believe this?”
27 “Yes, Lord,” she replied, “I believe that you are the Messiah, the Son of God,who is to come into the world.”
Be like Martha, believe, trust and DO NOT doubt the power of the Lord. Even if your loved ones die.
16 But Ruth replied, “Don’t urge me to leave you or to turn back from you. Where you go I will go, and where you stay I will stay. Your people will be my people and your God my God. 17 Where you die I will die, and there I will be buried. May the Lord deal with me, be it ever so severely, if even death separates you and me.”
This famous, inspiring quote from Ruth depicts the importance of the concept of change for the Lord.
Change is necessary in order to please the Lord. By stating this, Ruth showed she was not only willing to change her home, her land, but her pagan faith and family, ALL for the Lord.
Embrace change for the glory of our beautiful Lord today.
If you want a detailed lesson on the amazing takeaways from the book of Ruth you can learn all about her on this amazing Bible study of the book of Ruth.
Luke 1:38 Then Mary said, “Behold the maidservant of the Lord! Let it be to me according to your word.” And the angel departed from her”.
20 “Don’t call me Naomi, she told them. “Call me Mara, because the Almighty has made my life very bitter. 21 I went away full, but the Lord has brought me back empty. Why call me Naomi? The Lord has afflicted me; the Almighty has brought misfortune upon me.”
This a beautiful quote from one amazing Biblical woman, Naomi. She appears in the book of Ruth and as you can see, she is very sad in this quote of hers. But this quote is important because it glorifies God.
We need to know a little of the original language of the Old Testament, Hebrew to understand what some of this quote wants to say. “Mara” means “bitter” in Hebrew, which explains why she told people to start calling her by this name, since it she was really bitter at this point in her life.
However, amongst all this bitterness and sadness, this quote still glorifies God. She chose to trust the Lord, just like Ruth did, when they both faced really dire circumstances, poverty, hunger, death.
We must know this quote. This shows us that the Lord allows us to get sad, and He understands when circumstances are bad. However, we must trust that God is in charge of our lives and He knows what is best for us.
Again, the blessed mother of our beautiful Lord Jesus has another inspiring statement for us.
Luke 7:46: “And Mary said:
“My soul magnifies the Lord, 47 And my spirit has rejoiced in God my Savior. 48 For He has regarded the lowly state of His maidservant; For behold, henceforth all generations will call me blessed. 49 For He who is mighty has done great things for me, And holy is His name.
When you remember this quote from the virgin Mary, who was just a 15 year old, humble girl when God started to do great things with her you can remember God can use you for his glory today too.
With this quote, start rejoicing in your Lord TODAY.
Judges 5:31: “Thus let all Your enemies perish, O Lord!
But let those who love Him be like the sun
When it comes out in full strength.”
Deborah was the only female judge of all of Israel, when they were in the time of the Judges.
Never think that in a man-dominated society, you can’t have a great role for God. Our beautiful Lord wants to show us that with Deborah, who reigned during a heavy male-dominated time.
Women can do great things for God.
9. The Widow From Zarephath
1 Kings 7:12: “So she said, “As the Lord your God lives, I do not have bread, only a handful of flour in a bin, and a little oil in a jar; and see, I am gathering a couple of sticks that I may go in and prepare it for myself and my son, that we may eat it, and die.”
Never think that you have nothing to offer God.
She was a pagan, yet she believed in the Lord and the Lord greatly multiplied what little she had.
In your life, always state: The Lord my God lives.
10. Rahab The Harlot
Joshua 2:9 :“I know that the Lord has given you this land and that a great fear of you has fallen on us, so that all who live in this country are melting in fear because of you.10 We have heard how the Lord dried up the water of the Red Sea[a] for you when you came out of Egypt, and what you did to Sihon and Og, the two kings of the Amorites east of the Jordan, whom you completely destroyed.11 When we heard of it, our hearts melted in fear and everyone’s courage failed because of you, for the Lord your God is God in heaven above and on the earth below”.
Two magnificent things to learn from her: Fear and faith.
It didn’t matter that she was a harlot. She had fear of the Lord and had faith.
Her life and quote shows God can redeem you and He chose to redeem her because of, and to show us two things: She feared God and had faith.
Faith got her into the genealogy of our Lord Jesus Christ.
In conclusion, be inspired today to be like Esther, Lydia, Martha, Mary, Naomi, Ruth, Deborah, the widow of Zarephath and Rahab because God can turn you into a Biblical woman too.
