Many people have different views of what it means to be a godly woman. I will share with you 10 disciplines that God has called me to as a woman. This list is not in any particular order and they are all equally important.
One obvious truth about discipline is that it takes time, commitment, and consistency. without this three ingredients, discipline wont take a strong hold on its participants.
Godly discipline is an act of faith. Its a decision to walk the narrow path and not allow ourselves to be distracted by sin.
This is one way we can grow in Christlikeness, as well as become more like Jesus who was without sin.
What does it mean to be a godly woman?
There’s no one-size-fits-all answer, but here are ten disciplines for a Godly woman that may help you on your way.
10 Disciplines of a Godly woman
The discipline of Prayer
This is the first discipline of being a Godly woman. We must be in constant communication with our Heavenly Father and ask Him for guidance, forgiveness, strength, love, etc… Prayer is a channel through which we communicate to God, and he communicates with us similarly. Prayer can take place at any time but we should make it a priority to pray every day. It’s best when you have a set time to pray such as morning or evening. I usually pray before work in the mornings, that way it’s on my mind all day long and I’m more inclined to make decisions based on God’s will for me. Fix a time, stick to that time daily, and talk to the Father.
The discipline of Bible reading
This is one that I struggle with personally, but it’s an important part of being a Godly woman nonetheless. You can read your bible in many different ways; you could read by chapter or verse, topic, etc… and there are also various translations available for any level reader
The discipline of Scripture Memorization
I have never been good at memorizing scripture, but it’s something I’ve been working on lately, and have found that focusing on memorizing just one verse a week has made it a lot easier. You can use any translation you like, or if you’re wanting to start from scratch there are various Christian bible apps
The discipline of Meditation
Meditation is an important part of the life of a Godly woman. It’s not just about sitting in silence and emptying your mind but using the quiet time to focus on the Lord. It’s about stillness before the Lord, with your spirit and His communicating together as one.
The discipline of consistency:
*-Doing the right thing when you’re not feeling like doing it.
*-Making a habit of praying, reading your bible, and worshiping God every day without fail. It’s important to be consistent with these habits because they establish themselves in our lives over time and can’t be broken or given up easily if done.
Consistency is in all facets of life, in marriage, in raising kids, in our human relationship, consistency is something that can never be sidelined if we want result.
The Discipline of looking like Christ
The goal/aspiration of every Godly woman should be to look like Christ. God had an intention at creation, and it was to create an image that has His likeness. When the first man fell, the original intent was halted then Jesus was the substitute for that fallen man. He is a replica of the original intent of God at creation. Scripture says in Hebrews 12:2 “looking unto Jesus, the author, and the finisher of our faith” As we behold Christ we begin to change and look more like the original intent of God.
The Discipline of Vision
Every woman has a spectacle of dreams, ambitions they have drafted for their individual lives. As a Godly woman, it’s important for you to see through God’s eyes so that you can know with accurate precision what he wants for you. it is on this basis that you begin to draft out strategies, goals to birth these visions.
The Discipline of Generosity
One of the disciplines of a Godly woman is generosity. God is glorified when we give to His kingdom. The Bible says that the liberal soul shall be made fat, and whoever waters will also have their thirst quenched. Giving should be a habit of a Godly woman. Your smile can liberate someone, your shoulders can be a source of healing to someone as well as your listening ears. The truth is nothing is too small to give, you can never tell how far it will help liberate the person you are giving it to.
The discipline of Patience
As a woman who desires to grow in her faith, it’s important for you to cultivate patience. Patience is a fruit of the spirit and it’s important because it teaches you to trust God, one thing that we all need help in. Patience helps us better handle difficult circumstances as well as wait for our inheritance with meekness and hope.
The discipline of submission
submission is the best way for you to honor God. When we submit, it means that we are giving up power and authority over ourselves. It’s important because when we yield our lives to Him, He becomes all-powerful in us as well as through us which then causes righteousness and peace. A woman that submits to Christ finds it very easy to submit to her husband and everyone around her.
The discipline of Friendship/community
One of the most important parts of being a Godly woman is having friends. There are a lot of distractions in our world today and it feels like we need to make more real-life connections.
It’s easy for us all these days with texting, commenting on social media posts etc but nothing can replace the connection you feel when talking face-to-face!
Forming real life relationships can be hard work and take commitment. They may also require humility and courage. But God did not create us to have relationships online only! He created us for face to face connections and community that spurs us unto good works since we live in a fallen world, it’s difficult but through Christ anything is possible so don’t give up on people when things get tough because the Lord wants you there with them
Friendship offers us protection – not just against loneliness but also emotional vulnerability that comes with being isolated from our tribe of fellow believers.”
Finally, the Bible is a book that contains wisdom and guidance for all of life’s situations.
