A Gracious Woman [1]

Monday 15th July 2019 Prayer Devotion
Scripture Reading:- Proverbs 11:1-30
Topic:- A Gracious Woman [1]
Text:- Proverbs 11:16
A. Definition Of A Gracious Woman:
1. In general, the word means “to favor,” “to show kindness” to an inferior and “to be compassionate.”
2. Meaning  from Old Testament, “favorable” or, causative, “to cause to be gracious.” See Number 6:25; 2 Kings 13:23; Psalm 145:8.
3. In a modified sense, “graceful,” “winsome” or “attractive,” as applied particularly to persons and things. See Proverbs 11:16; Ecclesiastes 10:12; Luke 4:22.
4. The word is used once in the New Testament from root of Greek word chrestos, meaning “useful” as a benefit. See 1 Peter 2:3.
5. A gracious woman gets honor as our theme in Proverbs 11:16. Another definition of the word gracious is “courteous, kind, pleasant.”
6. Gracious behavior when we are not treated as well as we think we deserve to be treated.
7. When someone pulls out in front of you in traffic, what is your reaction?
8. When someone takes the credit for your work on an office project, what is your reaction?
9. When you aren’t asked to participate in a group activity like at Church, with friends, etc, what will you do?
10. When someone forgets an important holiday like your birthday or anniversary, how does a gracious woman respond in those situations?
11. I think the answer is found in the next verse of our theme. See Proverbs 11:17.
12. She is kind, treating the giver of the unfair treatment better than they deserve. It’s certainly not my default response, but kindness is the way a gracious woman responds to unfair treatment.
B. Attributes Of A Gracious Woman:
1. Respect: A gracious woman respects other women.  She doesn’t claim to only associate with men because women are whiny; she doesn’t speak badly of women behind their backs.  She doesn’t call women the names that men have used to degrade and to objectify us for thousands of years.  She doesn’t demean other women in order to fit in with the prevailing culture –  to pretend that she is more secure than she is.  She respects the integrity of other women’s person hoods, and she treats those women as she would will that she herself be treated.
Prayer Points:-
1. Oh Lord God, help me to be graciously endowed henceforth, in the name of Jesus Christ.
2. I command every nonchalant attitude in my life, what are you waiting for, die to the root by fire, in the name of Jesus Christ.
3. Oh Lord God, let Your grace be sufficient for me always henceforth, in the name of Jesus Christ.

ALTAR CALL

If you want to give your life to Christ; you want your sins forgiven; you want to become a child of God; you want to experience the realities of new birth; you want to make heaven;

Or you were once saved and fell along the line, and now you want to rededicate your life to Christ…

Then pray this short prayer of Faith

Say it loud and mean it:

“Lord Jesus, I surrender my life to you today. Forgive me my sins, wash me with your blood. I believe you died for me, on the third day you rose again that I may be justified. Right now, I believe that my sins are forgiven; I’m justified by your blood; I’m born-again; I’m saved; I’m a child of God; I’m free from the power of sin to serve the living God. Thank you Jesus for receiving me; thank you Jesus for restoring me; thank you Jesus for saving me.

Thank God for your soul. I congratulate you for the best decision of your life. For further details on how to grow in this new light, please click the CONTACT page or visit TACN or any bible believing church near you and ask for the pastor in charge.
