5 Verses Every Woman Should Know

One of the coolest things about the Bible is that there’s a verse or passage for almost any situation you could be going through. I know for me, I always stumble upon the right verse at the right time.

There are so many verses in the Bible that talk about the strength of a godly woman and how God fulfills his promises to those that are faithful. These five verses especially are good reminders of how much God loves us and how he wants us to view ourselves!

She is clothed with strength and dignity, and she laughs without fear of the future.” – Proverbs 31:25

God reminds us who we are and how he sees us through his eyes. Especially in the book of Proverbs, the Bible talks about a godly woman who puts her faith and hope in Jesus Christ. In Proverbs 31:25, the Bible talks about a woman who is strong, bold, and confident in the Lord and her future. It’s one of my favorite verses to remind myself of daily.

“Blessed is she who believed that the Lord would fulfill His promises to her.” – Luke 1:45

When we talk to God, we shouldn’t be sitting around and wondering if he’s listening. When we trust fully in God and put our faith in him, he will fulfill his promises. A woman of great faith and trust is truly blessed by Christ.

“I praise you because I am fearfully and wonderfully made; your works are wonderful, I know that full well.” – Psalms 139:14

When you’re feeling low or down on yourself, read this verse as many times as you have to. YOU are fearfully and wonderfully made. God created you in his image, and all of his creations are made without flaw, including you! It’s a verse that brings me peace knowing that the creator of the universe wonderfully created me, too.

“Charm is deceitful and beauty is in vain. But a woman who fears the Lord, she shall be praised.” – Proverbs 31:30

To fear the Lord doesn’t mean to be scared of the Lord. It means to be aware of his authority over our lives, and to fear his judgement and power. When we submit to him and what he wants for our lives, the best is yet to come. God’s plan is so much better than ours, we just have to trust in him!

“God is within her, she will not fail.” – Psalm 46:5

This verse doesn’t say she might fail or she could possibly fail. It says she will not fail, which is something we can put our trust in and a promise that God reassures us with. Things fall apart so better things can fall together. So, if you think you’ve failed, see how God uses that to lead to something so much better.

Meditate on these verses and memorize them if you have to! Knowing God’s scripture and having them ready in your head to think back on is always helpful. Are you scared for an important opportunity coming up? Remember Psalm 46:5. Are you feeling low and down on yourself? Remember Psalms 139:14.

There is something in the Bible for every situation you could be going through! You just have to search for it. 🙂

Becoming a Proverbs 31 Woman

Proverbs is one of my favorite books of the Bible.

If there was one book with enough instruction on how a godly woman should live, it would be this one.

In today’s society, it can be easy to get caught up in how the world wants us girls to act. We should try to focus on how God views us, instead of how the world views us.

This chapter of Proverbs portrays a woman who values God, strength, and generosity from beginning to end. I wanted to break it apart, verse by verse, and see how we can grow into the godly woman God created us to be!

  • She lacks nothing of value. 

I always read this verse and never knew what it was truly saying. God wants us to value the things he values. He values fellowship, forgiveness, love, and so many other things. We should strive to acquire patience, grace, and all of the characteristics he wants us to have.

  • She works vigorously with eager hands.

This verse reminds me to be as hardworking and diligent as I can, in all things I do. Whether it’s my schoolwork or videos for my YouTube channel, I try to put my all into it and give it 110%.

  • She opens her arms to the poor and extends her hands to the needy.

Have you ever tried giving some of your time to those in need? This isn’t the only verse in the Bible that encourages us to do so. Jesus was always helping, always serving, and always dedicated to others. Try it out for yourself and see how both your heart and perspective change. 

  • She is clothed with strength and dignity.

As women, we should hold ourselves to high standards. We should remember that with God, being our provider, we will always have all that we need! We should walk through our lives with our heads up high, knowing we can face whatever comes our way.

  • She has no fear of the future.

With strength, comes confidence. As Jeremiah 29:11 says, “’For I know the plans I have for you,’ declares the Lord.” We can be confident in knowing that the God of creation has already declared our plans for the future. 

  • She speaks with wisdom.

We should all strive to be quick to listen and slow to anger. We should speak through truth and use our wisdom to guide us. We should be that person in our friend group that can be the voice of reason and leads by example.

  • She fears the Lord.

This characteristic is above all others. A godly woman should fear the Lord and abide by him in any and every situation. Dive deep into the word and begin to feel his presence all around you.

How will you put this into practice? Will you work toward strength, wisdom, and fearing the Lord? Be the light in other people’s lives so they can see how a godly woman should live!

Proverbs 24:11 says “A fool vents all his feelings, but a wise man holds them back.” I love the wisdom in this verse. It tells us a lot a lot about how we should strive to act and carry ourselves.

I will be the first to admit that it is easy to react emotionally and based on feelings in tricky situations. When we are having a confrontation or are on bad terms with a friend, it can be easy to vent our feelings. Those words could cause hurt, and once you say something you can’t take it back. That’s why this verse says that a wise person holds their feelings back. Words hurt, and they can ruin relationships. Take some time to cool off and step back to look at the situation. Don’t act on impulse.

I know it is hard not to react in the moment, but holding those feelings back will be the best choice in the long run! It will save you, and others, a lot of hurt feelings and misunderstanding.

In today’s society, it can be hard to know your worth. There are too many guidelines and standards on what social norms a teenage girl should be living by. Growing up, there were many things that I wish I could’ve told myself that I’m still telling myself now. I put together some encouraging thoughts that may be helpful if you’re struggling in your life or in your daily walk of faith.

  • You are loved, whether you have a boyfriend or not, or whether you have a million friends or not.Chelsea Crockett - Bible Verse
  • You do not need a boyfriend to know your worth. Of course, all girls love for their crush to compliment them and to tell them how pretty they are. But just because you don’t have a boyfriend assuring you doesn’t mean you should think bad about yourself. God loves you and all your flaws!
  • You are not defined by your grades, your GPA, or your social life. There is so much emphasis on ACT scores, getting into a good college, etc. God loves you whether you’re at the top or bottom of your class.
  • Never feel like you need to fit in by dressing a certain way or going outside of your comfort zone.
  • Don’t dwell on the past. Your mistakes do not define you but only shape you into who you are today.

Hopefully this gives you a little encouragement to help you as you grow into the amazing person God made you to become!

Love, Chelsea

It is so easy to get caught up in the troubles of this world. It is easy to become angry, irritable, sarcastic, and all kinds of other negative emotions. Yet, Proverbs 3:3 says “ Do not let kindness and truth leave you.”

When I read this verse I immediately think “How am I treating people around me? Am I treating them with kindness? Am I speaking the truth?” As a Christian, it is really important for me to embody everything this verse says. Why? A couple of reasons. The first is proverbsife because God’s word tells me to. It tells me to be kind and to tell the truth, because those are two things that God wants His followers to represent. The second reason it is important for me to do what this verse says is because I am a Christian, therefore people look to me and watch how I act. They look to me to see how I live and what I stand for. I set an example for others, and my actions can either bring honor and glory to God, or they can dishonor and shame Him. My goal is to bring glory to God in everything I do, which means being kind to others, even when it is not easy, and to speak truth.

Don’t let kindness and truth escape you, because not only do these two attributes make you a more likeable, nice person, they also bring glory to God.

“She is clothed with strength and dignity; and laughs without fear of the future.” Proverbs 31:25.

            I wanted to share one of my favorite Bible verses, Proverbs 31:25.  To live our best life now, we must learn to trust God’s timing.  Sometimes we don’t understand things that are going on in our life.  We are puzzled by God’s timing and methods.  However, we have to trust that God sees the big picture and “laugh without fear of the future.”  Sometimes God’s will for our lives takes time!

Chelsea Crockett - Proverbs 31 25

            We need to take one day at a time and try to find good in every situation….even when it’s hard.  We need to walk in faith and trust God every step of the way.  To live our best life, we have to trust God’s timing!  Being clothed with strength means to not worry about the pieces in our life never fitting just right.  These pieces will come together eventually, just chill out and give it time!  We can’t grow impatient and force things to happen!  We’re just teenagers and having the pressure to figure out our future now causes more and more worry to come into our lives.  Sit back and relax, put your trust in God’s hands!
