Q: from Sis J1:
Sisters, favor please give me naman pointers:
- Power of a woman ( WORLD
view / wordly)
- Power of a Woman ( WORD VIEW)
Charm is deceptive
Beauty is fleeting
But the woman who fears the Lord is to be praised.
Thank you .
Power of worldly woman is about self-empowerment. Dependent on, focused in, and devotion to self. Limited. Human (imperfect) results.
Power of Word-ly woman:
Dependent on, focused in, and devotion to the all-powerful, all knowing, ever-present, round the clock, unlimited power of the Alpha and Omega, The Great I AM – Jesus Christ.
Unlimited. Divine results.
…although for the one who is perishing, this will look foolish.
It is human strength and self-dependence that can hinder us from seeking believing understanding Jesus; that is why when we face trials, it is God’s gift and grace to us so we can see how limited we are and how our best wisdom is nothing compared to His, so we will be willing for our minds to be renewed and we can be transformed according to His best will. That’s why we will be glad to admit our weakness and dependence on Him.
“Do not conform to the pattern of this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind. Then you will be able to test and approve what God’s will is—his good, pleasing and perfect will.”
Romans 12:2 NIV
“but to those whom God has called, both Jews and Greeks, Christ the power of God and the wisdom of God. For the foolishness of God is wiser than human wisdom, and the weakness of God is stronger than human strength.”
1 Corinthians 1:24-25 NIV
“Do not deceive yourselves. If any of you think you are wise by the standards of this age, you should become “fools” so that you may become wise. For the wisdom of this world is foolishness in God’s sight. As it is written: “He catches the wise in their craftiness”; and again, “The Lord knows that the thoughts of the wise are futile.””
1 Corinthians 3:18-20 NIV
““For my thoughts are not your thoughts, neither are your ways my ways,” declares the Lord. “As the heavens are higher than the earth, so are my ways higher than your ways and my thoughts than your thoughts. As the rain and the snow come down from heaven, and do not return to it without watering the earth and making it bud and flourish, so that it yields seed for the sower and bread for the eater, so is my word that goes out from my mouth: It will not return to me empty, but will accomplish what I desire and achieve the purpose for which I sent it.” Isaiah 55:8-11 NIV
“But he said to me, “My grace is sufficient for you, for my power is made perfect in weakness.” Therefore I will boast all the more gladly about my weaknesses, so that Christ’s power may rest on me.”
2 Corinthians 12:9 NIV
