For some women the month of May it is a celebration for others it is a challenge. However, there is a treasure in the word of God for all those mothers who every day need a reminder and encouragement to continue their important work in the earth. But, being a mother or not, I want you to treasure these 5 bible verses that will make you stronger as a mom.
1 Corinthians 1:27
But God has selected [for His purpose] the foolish things of the world to shame the wise [revealing their ignorance], and God has selected [for His purpose] the weak things of the world to shame the things which are strong [revealing their frailty].
With this verse I’m not saying you are foolish, I’m saying God chose you with a purpose; to manifest His Glory in your life. God uses you as woman and as a mother to reveal His Glory through your life.
Genesis 3:20 The man named his wife Eve (life spring, life giver), because she was the mother of all the living.
We should feel blessed and that we carry a great purpose of God in us. Eve is the name for the first woman that means: woman and mother of all the living. Eve was the first woman, the first wife, the most beautiful… with a big purpose “to be the mother of all living”. We were created to bring life!
John 15:13 No one has greater love [nor stronger commitment] than to lay down his own life for his friends.
In this verse we can see Jesus giving his life for us. Such is his love and commitment to the Father first and then to us. That same love is manifested in the heart of a mother, who is committed. So if for some time you felt as if you were giving your life for your children and have been from the first day committed to their welfare, feel blessed because you have the strength in you to carry out that task.
2 Corinthians 12:10
So I am well pleased with weaknesses, with insults, with distresses, with persecutions, and with difficulties, for the sake of Christ; for when I am weak [in human strength], then I am strong [truly able, truly powerful, truly drawing from God’s strength].
There is no better way to renew our strength than to declare ourselves strong in God. For the task of being mothers, wives, businesswomen among others, we need to take the strength of God to efficiently fulfill each task. Declare yourself strong in Christ!
Proverbs 31:10 An excellent woman [one who is spiritual, capable, intelligent, and virtuous], who is he who can find her? Her value is more precious than jewels and her worth is far above rubies or pearls.
This is one of my favorites verses, because it shows us the way of the wise woman, which is spiritual. A woman who is spiritual is because takes her time to spend time with the Lord, asking for guidance and direction. You are valuable more than jewels, rubies and pearls. That value comes from the Lord, don’t forget it!
What will make you stronger?
- Remember that you have a purpose.
- Remember you was created to give life.
- Remember your love and commitment is example for Jesus loves for us.
- Remember to declare your are strong in the Lord.
- Remember to spend time with God.
- Remember you are valuable.
