Whatever season of life you’re in, you will discover biblical insights and creative ideas to become a woman who responds to God’s love and a woman who rests in His sovereignty – basically, a woman after God’s own heart. Sometimes life can fall apart, and when it does the Bible is the perfect remedy to help you pick up the pieces. Or, when things are smooth sailing, simply renew your passion for the One who loves you most.
Here are 12 scriptures to redefine your heart in God.
1. Longing for God
It is LORD your God you must follow, and him you must revere. Keep his commands and obey him; serve him and hold fast to him. – Deuteronomy 13:4, TNIV
2. Confident in God’s Love
Love the LORD your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your strength.
– Deuteronomy 6:5
3. Find Rest for Your Soul
Come to me, all you who are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest. Take my yoke upon you and learn from me, for I am gentle and humble in heart, and you will find rest for your souls. For my yoke is easy, and my burden is light. – Matthew 11:28-30
4. Receive God’s Grace
For it is by grace you have been saved, through faith – and this not from yourselves, it is the gift of God – not by works, so that no one can boast. – Ephesians 2:8-9
5. Respond to God’s Love
For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son that whoever believes in Him shall not perish, but have eternal life. – John 3:16
6. Spend Time with God
The plans of the LORD stand firm forever, the purposes of his heart through all generations. – Psalm 33:11
7. Grow in Different Seasons
I am the vine; you are the branches. Those who remain in me, and I in them, will produce much fruit. For apart from me you can do nothing. – John 15:5, NLT
8. Keep a Prayer Journal
Let love and faithfulness never leave you; bind them around your neck, write them on the tablet of your heart. – Proverbs 3:3
9. Plant the Word in Your Mind & Heart
Oh, the joys of those who do not follow the advice of the wicked, or stand around with sinners, or join in with mockers. But they delight in the law of the LORD, meditating on it day and night. They are like trees planted along the riverbank, bearing fruit each season. Their leaves never wither and they prosper in all they do. – Psalm 1:1-3 NLT
10. Simple Prayer
The world is full of so-called prayer warriors who are prayer-ignorant. They’re full of formulas and programs and advice, peddling techniques for getting what you want from God. Don’t fall for that nonsense. This is your Father you are dealing with, and he knows better than you what you need. With a God like this loving you, you can pray very simply. – Matthew 6:7-9, MSG
11. Why Pray?
We also pray always for you that our God would count your worthy of his calling, and fulfill all the good pleasure of His goodness and the work of faith with power, that the name of our Lord Jesus Christ may be glorified in you, and you in Him, according to the grace of our God and the Lord Jesus Christ. – 2 Thessalonians 1:11-12 NKJV
12. Open Yourself to God’s Presence
Draw near to God and he will draw near to you. – James 4:8, NKJV
