When God says, Wow.

“You should clothe yourselves instead with the beauty that comes from within, the unfading beauty of a gentle and quiet spirit, which is so precious to God” 1 Peter 3:4, NLT.

The story of Ruth is my favorite story in the Bible because it is the first real Cinderella story I always felt I could relate to. You have a woman, Ruth, who was born in the strange and foreign land of Moab. She married and experienced loss. Then she left Moab to follow her mother-in-law, Naomi, to Bethlehem Judah. In this new land, she met Boaz. They would eventually marry, and she would become the mother of Obed, who was in the lineage of King David and Jesus. What was it about Ruth that not only caught Boaz’s eye but, more importantly, God’s eye. What was it that made this woman from a foreign land stand out the moment she stepped foot into Bethlehem? It is the same thing that causes you and I to stand out whenever we enter a place. The Bible says there’s a quality of a woman that is so precious in God’s sight. This quality stands out to man and to God Himself. It is the quality of a meek and quiet spirit. It causes both God and man to stand back and say, Wow!

Meek means mild and humble. Quiet means stillness. We women have had to be strong and tough, haven’t we? All throughout history, we’ve had to take care of our families. We’ve had to work long hours to make ends meet. We’ve had to endure suffering and pain. We’ve had to breakdown barriers and go to great lengths to show that we are capable and worthy of love and respect. This verse isn’t saying for us to give up what we’ve worked so hard for. It’s not saying for us to stay in our place and be silent. What God is saying is this quality of meekness and quietness goes deeper into the heart and soul of a person. Meekness and quietness is a pure resolve to trust God with your entire wellbeing. It is real strength. It is power under control. It is handling messy situations with class because you trust in the love God has for you, how He feels about you, and what He has spoken over your life. It is a sweetness that is released when being crushed. It is a perfume that everyone smells when pressure comes. And it can only be produced in the heart of someone who allows God entrance into their life to work in them.

Prayer: Father, I cry out to you. I want to be what you consider beautiful. Work in me. Work in my heart and mind. Accomplish in me a meek and quiet spirit that’s not worked up and out of control. Help me be the woman you thought of when you were forming me in my mother’s womb. I trust you, Father. In Jesus’ name, Amen.

(Read 1 Peter 3:4-5)

  5. Love the reading today.so amazed at the πŸ™ prayer, it’s confirmation for me because I pray that prayer every day 🌹❀️.

  6. Thank you so much I love this and I’ve struggled in this area. God always knows what I need. I would ask any sister that is reading this that I could get a job that works out for me and my daughter. She’s an adult with disabilities so I’m her caregiver it’s made it difficult to find a job. I use to get paid to take care of her but that ended because I moved to Texas thank you in advance sister

    1. Just to let you know that Im praying you get a job that lets you continue to be caretaker ( or to be able to pray for reliable help) and to provide for your family. May you have time to spend in prayer also. May He bless you for being so dedicated!

      1. Sorry above I meant “that you would be able to pay for reliable help”. But praying for it is good too and that is part of my prayer for your today.

  7. Amen and Amen!! Yes, when God continually wants to dress. He pursues us daily as we submit to Him, that we decrease as He increase. He clothes us with such beauty on the inside to show up on the outside. Yes, that’s what attracts! I’m grateful for His discipline and pruning, shaping and molding me into the daughter He wants me to be to inherit His eternal kingdom. Let’s me not forget that He dresses us with the qualities of light so we can attract those that want to know about “The Great Light” to build up His kingdom.

    Sister Kesha, another one to let Jesus be our ” Vine Dresser ” to stay connected to Him.πŸ’πŸ™β€οΈ

  10. This really blessed me! My desire is to be the woman that God thought of when He was forming me in my mother’s womb! That has been my prayer for several months now. Thank you Woman of God! May God continue to bless you! ❀️❀️

  11. Glory to God❣️❣️❣️As I pray, I’ve been told to “watch” my prayers and “wait w/expectancy” God is doing a new thing in my life. As I sit on the Potter’s wheel, I bless Your Name Jehovah-M’Kaddesh, the Lord my Sancfifer. YOU have set me apart… not aside… but apart for Yourself for righteous living. I’m reminded I am hand-picked for pure and holy living. I want to be pleasing to the πŸ‘ of God❣️
    In Jesus Name πŸ™
