As a Christian woman your identity is not merely a “Proverbs 31” woman. No, your identity is ultimately found in Christ. There is nothing you can add or subtract to this truth. Jesus is enough. While it is a noble thing to be like that woman in Proverbs 31, she is but a drop in the bucket of how radical and glorious your identity as a daughter of God really is. Jesus is the fullness of our identity. He is the ultimate standard of goodness, kindness, gentleness, resourcefulness, beauty, and love. He is the perfect One, not the Proverbs 31 woman, and we now get to share in His nature. Seek to reflect and imitate Jesus above all else. As you conform to His image you will automatically reflect what is laid out in that famous chapter. Ladies, rest in the fact that your identity is secure in Jesus and that there is none greater than Him.
Knowing who you are in Christ gives you the ability to rest. When you don’t know who you are, you strive. So rest child, you are loved and accepted by God. You are seen as holy and blameless in His sight. You are His beloved, his friend, his son or daughter, you are His cherished, chosen one. You are His, come and rest.
-Me (via lovedbythemosthighking)
There’s no greater joy than being with Him and knowing Him and seeing Him. There’s no one like Him and there’s no other joy like His.
'The joy of the Lord is our strength.' But it is not our joy in the Lord that gives us strength. The Lord’s joy is our strength. My strength comes not from how much joy I can manage to muster. Otherwise, I am the source of my strength and not God. My strength comes from the fact that our God rejoices in me. His joy in me makes me strong.
Always base your identity in Christ
The human body essentially recreates itself every six months. Nearly every cell of hair and skin and bone dies and another is directed to its former place. You are not who you were last November.
Even though I go through hardships in life, I will still choose to praise you Jesus.
"A billion galaxies will not satisfy the human soul." (Ps 8:3) Your heart was made for God.
