THE VIRTUOUS WOMAN
A RECIPE

STEP #9


Welcome back ...

Today's Virtuous Vitamin is
~STRENGTH~

power

 

Proverbs 31 ... Verse 17
She girdeth her loins with strength, and strengtheneth her arms.

EXERCISE PROFITETH LITTLE


Glad to have you back, you TRUTH seeker, you!

What do you think of exercise? Do you suppose that king Lemuelís mother was pertaining to exercise as a means of obtaining bodily strength?

1 Timothy 4:8
For bodily exercise profiteth little: but godliness is profitable unto all things.

 Many women absolutely love the thought of being strong and having power, but let's search for the spiritual message here. Here comes another one of those wounds of TRUTH again, but a flatterer, I am not.

Proverbs 28:23
He that rebuketh a man afterwards shall find more favour than he that flattereth with the tongue.

 Is the power you desire the power of the Holy Spirit, or is it the kind of power that the world says is desirable? Is the power you seek, power to resist evil, or is it the power to assist evil? 

Let's look at this in a different light. Let's talk about nuclear energy for example. When atoms are split, a lot of energy is released. If that power is contained in a bomb, when it is detonated, what happens? Destruction. But if that power was used differently, it could heat homes, fuel cars, or provide electricity of amazing proportions. 

You wouldn't pour gasoline into your television set, or throw a couple dozen 9 volt batteries into the gas tank of your car because it's the wrong kind of energy source, and they just wouldn't work. Now, think about how you, as a woman, were created. You are the weaker vessel. But that doesn't mean that you have no effect on anything.

1 Peter 3:7
Likewise, ye husbands, dwell with them according to knowledge, giving ho
nour unto the wife, as unto the weaker vessel, and as being heirs together of the grace of life; that your prayers be not hindered.

As you can see, being the weaker vessel isn't less honorable. But it does mean that your power or strength is used for different purposes. Not only physically, but spiritually, how much strength do you suppose it takes to bear a child? How about raising a child? How about the woman's role as a homemaker? 

 The world has spent more energy convincing women that their power lies in politics, fame, a job or career, dominating men, money, muscular development, and so many other ridiculous things, that it makes uranium look silly. You're heading for destruction if you're trying to gain the wrong kind of power. 

A respected friend of mine explained to me the natural weakness of a woman. Picture this: You're sitting on the sofa watching a movie with your mate, when suddenly you hear a window break. What do you do ... Naturally? Do you immediately jump up motioning for your mate not to move and say, "Don't worry honey, I'll take care of this," or do you naturally expect him to take care of it?

Instead of using your energy ... Your strength ... To try and gain power that God never meant you to have, why not spend the same amount of energy resisting the world's deception. You'll find that the Holy Spirit will redirect your energy into womanly strength, if you just ask. Go ahead ... Ask!

You do need strength, and an abundance of it to resist the devil. You're a prime target because of your natural weakness and he (the enemy) knows it. Why do you think he approached Eve in the Garden of Eden instead of Adam? Because he knew she was weaker and his chances of CON-vincing her were better. But what if Eve had relied on the power of the Holy Spirit instead of desire to have her own power, would she then have sensed the danger that threatened all of mankind after her? That might've been nice, eh? That is what she was desirous of, wasn't it ... Power ... To be as a god?

Genesis 3:1-6
Now the serpent was more subtil than any beast of the field which the LORD God had made. And he said unto the woman, Yea, hath God said, Ye shall not eat of every tree of the garden? And the woman said unto the serpent, We may eat of the fruit of the trees of the garden: But of the fruit of the tree which is in the midst of the garden, God hath said, Ye shall not eat of it, neither shall ye touch it, lest ye die. And the serpent said unto the woman, Ye shall not surely die: For God doth know that in the day ye eat thereof, then your eyes shall be opened, and ye shall be as gods
, knowing good and evil. And when the woman saw that the tree was good for food, and that it was pleasant to the eyes, and a tree to be desired to make one wise, she took of the fruit thereof, and did eat, and gave also unto her husband with her; and he did eat.

That kind of evil that Eve experienced in the Garden of Eden, still lurks around the world today. You encounter it every day of your life, but if you focus on gaining the strength of the Spirit of God to fulfill His will for you instead of your own will for worldly strength, you'll gain inner strength from HIM that will bring you the contentment in your life that you're looking for, and isn't contentment and the power of the Holy Spirit really the only power a person needs?

Psalms 89:21
With whom my hand shall be established: mine arm also shall strengthen him.

Just imagine, any gym that you pass, at any given moment, if all those women devoted an hour to the Lord instead of their flesh, however many times per week they go, how much more strength they would really have.

Spend your energy to edify, magnify, praise and honor your Father.

Mark 12:30
And thou shalt love the Lord thy God with all thy heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy mind, and with all thy strength: this is the first commandment.

Donít be overwhelmed by the responsibilities of being virtuous. The strength of the Lord and the power of the Holy Spirit will sustain you.

What does the Lord consider strength?

Psalms 28:7
The LORD is my strength and my shield; my heart trusted in Him, and I am helped: therefore my heart greatly rejoiceth; and with my song will I praise Him.
Proverbs 10:29
The way of the Lord is strength to the upright.
Proverbs 14:26
In the fear of the Lord is strong confidence: and His children shall have a place of refuge.
Proverbs 18:10
The name of the Lord is a strong tower: the righteous runneth into it, and is safe.
Nehemiah 8:10
The joy of the Lord is your strength.

Psalms 73:26
My flesh and my heart faileth: but God is the strength of my heart, and my portion for ever.

The question again: What does the Lord consider strength? The answer: THE LORD IS a virtuous womanís strength. 

Acts 1:8
But ye shall receive power, after that the Holy Ghost is come upon you: and ye shall be witnesses unto me both in Jerusalem, and in all Judaea, and in Samaria, and unto the uttermost part of the Earth.

The power of the Holy Spirit is the only power you need.

INDEPENDENT ... YET INSECURE?

Speaking of strength ... I knew a person ... A woman ... Who thought she was tough as nails ... On the outside. She could talk a big story, and make (some) people believe that she was a real "tough broad". But when it came down to brass tacks, so to speak, being tough as nails didn't ward off the enemy. She was constantly being attacked (tried and tempted) despite her Goliath-like armor. On the inside, she was always nervous, doubtful, scared, insecure. You can mistakenly believe that talking big talk, or appearing physically strong, or projecting that you are worldly independent is enough to sustain your inner strength in this life and bear you through to Salvation, but your conscience (the source of righteousness and the strength to resist wrong in you) knows that the Spirit of God is the only strength that can carry you through the trials and tribulations that this world will unquestionably present in your life. Lean on Him. Depend on Him. He is your shield.

Psalms 84:11
For the LORD God is a sun and shield: the LORD will give Grace and glory: no good thing will He withhold from them that walk uprightly.

DEPEND ON THE LORD

That's the only security you have. That's the only strength that you can truly count on, day in, and day out. It doesn't matter what the world perceives you as. David knew this when he accepted Goliath's challenge to fight, that you can be a giant, but if you don't depend on the Lord for your strength ... You're as weak as a feather.

Do you remember, I mentioned a woman named Deborah who was once the judge of Israel? During that time the king of Canaan had a massive army, and was well equipped with 900 iron chariots. The people of Israel in all practicality didn't stand a chance against them, having no comparison for artillery. But guess what happened. God sent a torrent, and it turned the battleground into a quagmire, so the chariots were useless and Israel won the battle. The hand of God is the only strength that you can truly count on.  

Security is dependence on God ... Period.

Physical strength is temporal. It is fleshly. You are reborn in the SPIRIT when you are a Christian. Anything fleshly ... Or derived of your own strength or ability ... Is deceiving. It will fail. 

We talked in an earlier Step about regaining femininity. In your quest for virtue, if you aren't seeking for gentleness, meekness, submissiveness, love, and anything else that Jesus represented of God when He was on Earth, then you're seeking for the wrong things. He calmed the storm with the power of the Holy Spirit, not with physical strength. He walked on water. He did miraculous things that the strongest man on Earth could not do. And He waits for you to depend on Him ... To ask for His power to work through you to accomplish His will in your life. No weight lifting necessary. 

Undoubtedly, the world will disagree ... And that's their job, as advocates of the enemy, but your soul, your conscience, the essence of your womanhood ... Knows better.

THE LORD IS YOUR ROCK!

Philippians 4:13  
I can do all things through Christ which strengtheneth me.

Lean on Him. Pray to Him. Rely on Him. Trust in Him. Glorify Him.

And as always, reflect on His Grace ... It is so strengthening!
