Faithfulness of women in the Bible

Here are some women in the Bible that I found to be faithful who during trials and tribulations kept the promises, found favor with God, a King, and a rich ruler.

The first woman: Name Esther, in chapters 2;3 Esther finds that she was in the right place at the right time of her life where God was able to carry out His plan for His people, if it wasn’t for Esther’s Faith and courage and putting her own life in danger the Jews would be destroyed. Esther kept the wise plan of her cousin, Mordecai, and found favor of the King to save her people.

God has a bigger plan for our lives than we have for ourselves. God may put you into positions of leadership or influence so that we can be able to complete His plan and purpose. God uses ordinary people like you and me to accomplish the extraordinary things for him. Even though God corrects us don’t ever think for one moment that he will ever abandon us for he loves us and will never leave us stranded. Amen.

The Second woman: Name Ruth In this story we find the Genuine love and giving of self in order to benefit others this kind of love and kindness will be rewarded. The book of sets out where there was a famine that struck the land and man name Elimelech and his wife Naomi moved to Moab where they had 2 Sons the Husband died and the 2 sons married and also died. The wives of the 2 sons were Orpah, and Ruth. The women split up and Ruth and Naomi stayed together. Naomi begged Ruth to leave to find another Husband, but Ruth refused. Naomi became very depressed and changed her name which means pleasant, to Mara which means bitter the reason for this was that Naomi was blaming God for all her troubles. Ruth stood strong and and finds a rich ruler by the name Boaz who happen to be Naomi’s cousin .God blessed Ruth for her love, Sacrifice and proven devotion. Gave her a husband a Son and a part of the lineage of Jesus Christ. Isn’t that a great God or what? God Abundantly blesses those who seek to live obedient lives and wanting to please God in all that we do Amen.

The Third woman: Name Hannah, in this book Hannah was a woman who was despised by her rival who would provoke her in order to irritate her, because her womb was barren
Hannah Prayed the God would give her a Son and that she promised that she would give him back to the Lord to serve God all the days of his life and not a hair of the Sons head would ever be cut. God hears her prayer and gave Hannah a Son whose name is Samuel. Hannah was faithful to her promise and Samuel became the first Prophet Hannah Prayed a prayer of Joy for what God had done found in 1 Samuel Chapter 2:1-11.
God keeps his promises and he expects us to do the same God does hear our prayer everyone of them and answers them.

The Forth Woman: Name Mary. Mary was the Mother of Jesus. Found in Matthew 1:5, 6, And 16 in Luke 1: 26 Mary finds Favor with God and believed the word spoken by the Angel of God and gives Birth to our Lord and Savior Jesus. VS 31-35, 37, 38 Mary sings a song of Joy and Praise that Glorifies God.

The Fifth Woman: is My Wife Diane she is what I call a true Virtuous woman. You find her in Proverbs 31:10-31 and Proverbs 18: 22 which state to find a wife is to find a good thing and finds Favor from the Lord. You may not find my wife in the Bible, but I believe that the Book of Acts isn’t finished being written yet. My wife fits this proverb to the best of her ability and by the Help of God she is always praying over her family and always there to lend a helping hand to all that she comes in contact with. She makes me look good when I don’t always look good. We all rise up and call her blessed. I thank god for my wife for if it wasn’t for God and her I wouldn’t be here today. Thank you Jesus
