Strong Woman or Woman of Strength?

A strong woman isn't afraid of anything........But a woman of strength is courageous in the face of fear because she KNOWS her God....

The Lord is my strength and my shield; my heart trusts in Him and I am helped.
My heart leaps for joy and I will give thanks to Him in song!
Psalm 28:7

Be strong and courageous. Do not be afraid or terrified because of them, for the Lord your God goes with you; He will never leave you nor forsake you." Deuteronomy 31:6

A strong woman walks sure-footedly.........But a woman of strength is confident that her God will lead her in a perfect path....

For the Lord shall be thy confidence and shall keep thy foot from being taken. Prov 3:26

It is God who arms me with strength and makes my way perfect.
II Samuel 22:33

A strong woman wears the look of determination on her face.........But a woman of strength obtains wisdom from His Word and wears an ornament of grace and a crown of glory....

She (wisdom) shall give to your head a wreath of gracefullness;
a crown of beauty and glory will she deliver to you.
Proverbs 4:9 amp (emphasis added)

A strong woman won't let anyone get the best of her.........But a woman of strength is a woman who gives her best as an expression of her life in Christ....

...whatever you do, do all to the Glory of God.
I Corinthians 10:31

A strong woman has faith that she's strong enough for the journey.........But a woman of strength sets her face like flint to seek after Him and His Word - strengthening her faith all along her way - a doer of the Word. Then she obtains true strength for her journey and finds good success!

This book of the law shall not depart out of thy mouth
but thou shalt meditate therein day and night
that thou mayest observe to do according to all that
is written therein; for then thou shalt make
thy way prosperous, and then thou shalt have good success.
Joshua 1:8

Strong Woman or Woman of Strength - The choice is ours. And oh, how this world needs anointed Women of Strength humbly walking with Him in the power of the Holy Spirit and strengthened by His love, wisdom, mercy and grace!

Sweet Blessings to you ~Women of Strength sisters!

Pin It!

I want to be a woman of strength; trusting in my God and His mighty power. However, I also like to work out and be strong. But it's different for sure.

Praying for you and yours,

A strong woman wears the look of determination on her face.(That will exhaust you for sure).But a woman of strength obtains wisdom from His Word and wears an ornament of grace and a crown of glory..That is what I want to be like when I grow up!! Walking in His Grace wearing a crown of glory and not exhaustion!
Great words of wisdom written with excellence!

I don't know how I would do without Him by my side at work. Facing fear, I would be more like a woman, not of strength, but in distress! Great post sister. God bless you.
