How to Follow After God’s Own Heart

It is wonderful being a woman after God’s own heart, isn’t it? To know Him. To love Him. To enrich the lives of others. To follow Him and to enjoy the blessings He extends to you when you do. No woman’s life could be more satisfying than the life enjoyed by a woman after His own heart, a woman whose heart’s desire is to do God’s will.

Our transformation into being a woman after God’s own heart is indeed God’s work. When you follow the disciplines to place yourself before God—fostering a consistent devotional life, personal growth, godly home and family, and ministry to others—He works in your heart. When you follow God’s will, it pleases Him, benefits the lives of those you serve, and shows Christ to the world.

RESPOND

God, I want to follow You. I want to be Your child, a true woman after Your heart—a woman who lives her life in You and for You. I acknowledge my sin and receive Your Son, Jesus Christ, in my needy heart, giving thanks that He died on the cross for my sins. Thank You for giving me Your strength so that I can follow You. Amen.

RENEWING RESOURCES

A Woman After God’s Own Heart Bible by Elizabeth George is filled with this devotion and 364 other short devotions to draw you to God’s Word and give you hope, wisdom, and understanding. 

REFLECT

“This He spoke, signifying by what death he would glorify God. And when He had spoken this, He said to him, ‘Follow Me.’” (John 21:19)

Do I rely on my own strength more than God’s?

REMEMBER

Our transformation into being a woman after God’s own heart is indeed God’s work.
