Biblical Womanhood

Father Knows Child, by Evans Olang

Posted on Updated on


Job 2:10, “But he said to her, “You speak as one of the foolish women speaks…In all this Job did not sin with his lips”

“I woman X take you Job to be my lawfully wedded husband. To have and to hold from this day forward, for better or for worse, for richer or for poorer, in sickness and in health, to love and to cherish, till death do us part”. I do not think the vows are taken seriously in our time like in the past. These days people say one thing but mean something else. And here I want to understand what Job’s wife was getting into when she married Job. Read the rest of this entry »

At Crossroad 1of3: Orpah At Crossroad, Evans Olang

Posted on Updated on


Ruth 1:14, vs. 14, “Then they lifted up their voices and wept again; and Orpah kissed her mother-in-law, but Ruth clung to her”

In the next three devotions, I will share specifically three areas in our journey we may have to deal with. If not all, I will share the journeys of these three women; Orpah, Naomi and Ruth. The crossroad is the redefining place for commitment that leads to destiny. Today we share on Orpah but first beginning with the story that brought these three women together.

At Crossroad 2of3: Naomi At Crossroad, Evans Olang

Ruth 1:11-13, “11 But Naomi said, “Turn back, my daughters; why will you go with me? Are there still sons in my womb, that they may be your husbands? 12 Turn back, my daughters, go—for I am too old to have a husband. If I should say I have hope, if I should have a husband tonight and should also bear sons, 13 would you wait for them till they were grown? Would you restrain yourselves from having husbands? No, my daughters; for it grieves me very much for your sakes that the hand of the LORD has gone out against me!”

Naomi represents in my judgment wounded believers due to one or more tragedies and struggles in life wondering where is God in all these. As you read the story of Naomi, you come to learn that she was caught in between where she came from which reminded her of famine and where she was which reminded her of the loss of her husband and two sons.

At Crossroad 3of3: Ruth At Crossroad, Evans Olang

Ruth 1:15-17, “15 And she said, “Look, your sister-in-law has gone back to her people and to her gods; return after your sister-in-law.” 16 But Ruth said: “ Entreat me not to leave you, Or to turn back from following after you; For wherever you go, I will go; And wherever you lodge, I will lodge; Your people shall be my people, And your God, my God. 17 Where you die, I will die, And there will I be buried. The LORD do so to me, and more also, If anything but death parts you and me.”

I find Ruth to represent a new believer or a believer who has been awakened to God’s call. Ruth was in no better situation to that of Naomi and Orpah, however, we see a different spirit in her. Read the rest of this entry »

Abigail, Blessed Are You, Part 1of4, Evans Olang

1Samuel 25:2-42, “Then David said to Abigail: “Blessed is the LORD God of Israel, who sent you this day to meet me! And blessed is your advice and blessed are you, because you have kept me this day from coming to bloodshed and from avenging myself”

A question often asked, “Why do bad things happen to good people?” (of course there is no one good by biblical definition). I have one of my own, “Why do some nice people find themselves in what I would call bad marriages?”. Read the rest of this entry »

1Samuel 25:2-42, “Then David said to Abigail: “Blessed is the LORD God of Israel, who sent you this day to meet me! And blessed is your advice and blessed are you, because you have kept me this day from coming to bloodshed and from avenging myself”

What do you do when someone else mistakes is destined to affect you? Should you sit and wait for it or do something when there is still an opportunity? I’ve learned as I hope you too have learned, It’s not over until it’s over. Read the rest of this entry »

It’s interesting to note that God used this woman at a time she needed help the most. Have you realized how sometimes the Lord sends people your way who need your encouragement at the time you are very discouraged and need encouragement yourself? Read the rest of this entry »
