• “The greatest satisfaction I can have is the knowledge that He is what He is; and that, being what He is, He never will be otherwise. If I am saved at last, it will be the free gift of God; since I have no worth and no merit of my own.” – Madame Guyon

How Does a Woman Act? by Nancy Leigh DeMoss 09/02/11

Nancy Leigh DeMoss: What traits does a godly woman have? The Bible has quite a bit to say about that.

“Ruth 3:11: ‘And now, my daughter, don’t be afraid. . . . All my fellow townsmen know that you are a woman of noble character.’ ”

Nancy: Do you have a reputation for being a woman of godly character?

“She speaks with wisdom, and faithful instruction is on her tongue” (Proverbs 31:26).

Nancy: Do you spend time with the Word of God so that you can speak wise words to others?

“A woman should learn in quietness and full submission” (1 Timothy 2:11).

Nancy: Do you have a teachable spirit?

“It is better to dwell in the wilderness than with a contentious and an angry woman” (Proverbs 21:19).

Nancy: Do you have a spirit of welcoming people or of pushing them away? Do you find yourself arguing and getting angry easily?

Why not spend some time in the Word of God and ask Him to show you what kind of woman He wants you to be?

With Seeking Him, I’m Nancy Leigh DeMoss.

Verse of the Day

[The Day of the Lord] But the day of the Lord will come as a thief in the night, in which the heavens will pass away with a great noise, and the elements will melt with fervent heat; both the earth and the works that are in it will be burned up. Therefore, since all these things will be dissolved, what manner of persons ought you to be in holy conduct and godliness, — 2 Peter 3:10-11 (NKJV)
