Helping Women Discover Who They are in God

Share This article


Lindsay has seen how the world assigns value and worth to females or even devalues them. She says, “It is important for women to understand their true worth and value in Christ. By doing so, it will impact your decisions and how you live your life.” When you look at strong women in the Bible and throughout history you can see how they act, respond, listen, and speak. “In my many years of ministry, I have found that women with inner strength, the kind that only knowing God can bring, react differently than women who don’t operate from that same kind of strength.”

For example, women with true strength are different in the way they give, how they interact with their families, and how they respond to unexpected circumstances. She shares three verses to encourage you in your journey towards discovering great strength in Him:
1.    “Be strong in the Lord and in the power of His might” (Ephesians 6:10) – In other words, you can be strong in the Lord not just in your own power. You must recognize that He is Lord, He has the power. Lindsay says, “I have to remind myself that the pressure’s off; I don’t have to have mighty power. I just have to connect to the One who does, and you can connect to that power too.”
2.    “I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me” (Philippians 4:13) “Once we realize that, by faith, we can connect to the One who is all-powerful, almighty, all strength, we can put that strength to good use and believe we can do everything God has called us to do,” shares Lindsay.
3.    “The joy of the Lord is your strength” (Nehemiah 8:10) – Lindsay reveals, “When we can connect with the strength that God makes available to us, we are able to do what we’re called to do, and we can live in a continuous state of joy.” Circumstances in life can change, but how we approach each situation with happiness puts us in a position of strength.


Lindsay defines strength stealers as “situations, experiences, or relationships that cause you to feel like something has taken a vacuum cleaner to your courage, your fight, or your passion and sucked the strength out of you.” Be careful of these situations because they can leave you depleted. Some possible strength stealers in your life could be a devastating loss, a daunting task, an unwanted divorce, or unexpected financial pressure. 

For Lindsay, a significant strength stealer she had to work through was the possibility of not having children when doctors were certain she wouldn’t. For years, she suffered miscarriages, endured surgeries, and lost her newborn son hours after his birth. Instead of allowing these circumstances to weaken her, she relied on God and supportive family and friends. As a result, her faith grew stronger as she continued to trust God for children. Eventually, she had three daughters. “I believe we are living in a day when, as women of God, our strength is needed more than ever. I also believe that with God, we can be stronger than we already are.”

A few years ago, she experienced another strength stealer when she was told she had thyroid cancer. Soon after her diagnosis her husband Richard bought her a little yellow rubber duck. He reminded Lindsay, “You are not a sitting duck. You are the righteousness of God in Christ Jesus. Now, Lindsay, expect a miracle.” Today Lindsay is cancer free. She is healthy and thankful for the miracle working power of God. P. 84


As a woman of God your strength is needed more than ever. Godly strength as Lindsay defines it is, “Trusting God for the ability to stand firm and confident in the face of life’s difficulties and being able to remain peaceful and composed when life’s storms come our way.” Some strength builders she shares include:
•    Know when to say yes, no, or nothing at all. When Lindsay married Richard, she had to learn when to say yes and when to say no. “God doesn’t always direct women to say yes to every opportunity, every situation, and everyone. Sometimes answering no is the best quality decision we can make. Strong godly women learn that it’s okay to say no and learn when to say it.”
•    Choose to forgive. Forgiveness is an act of obedience to God. It sets you free from the situation and allows you to heal instead of continuing to rehearse it in your mind and becoming bitter.    
•    Become a good listener. Strong women listen with their ears and their hearts. When someone is speaking, give them your undivided attention, provide practical feedback, defer judgement, and respond appropriately and respectfully.

Ask God to reveal to you areas of personal strength. “My hope is that you will begin to identify spiritual strengths, physical strengths, emotional strengths, financial strengths, and even relational strengths and see how those strengths can become assets to help you succeed at home, at work, or anywhere else.” Here are some words that she wants you to consider as possible strengths that you may have never thought of: persistent, motivated, diligent, and strong under pressure.


When Lindsay was pregnant with her daughter Jordan, she had a great pregnancy yet became fearful as her due date was approaching. She called on Richard to pray for her. However, as he began to pray, he felt something was wrong. The Holy Spirit began showing him that Lindsay needed to pray for herself and take authority over the fear that was robbing her of peace. She went into her bedroom and prayed by herself. Within minutes, she felt peace and the fear subsided. 

As you pray, Lindsay suggests three effective methods to help you gain victory in whatever circumstances you are facing: (1) Pray by yourself and pray the Word; (2) Find a prayer partner, someone you can trust; and (3) Join with other seasoned prayer warriors in corporate prayer.
