9 Qualities of a Kingdom Woman

Dear Woman of God,

I wanted to start this blog post as a letter. I wish I could sit across

from you over coffee and share our stories of how we came to

know the Lord Jesus Christ. I wonder how many of you are new in

your faith or are seasoned in the scriptures. Or maybe you are

reading this and you have never encountered the Lord Jesus

Christ. It is my prayer today that as you read this blog, that you

will glean some wisdom to take with you on your journey of

becoming a kingdom woman. I don’t think any of us have ever

really arrived until we reach glory. We are all a work in progress

growing closer to the LORD together.

There are many examples of Kingdom women in the bible, but I

chose to use Hannah’s example in 1 Samuel 1-2 because I believe

she displays many good qualities of a kingdom woman. Hannah

was married to a man named Elkanah who also had another wife.

Back in biblical times many men of the Old Testament had

multiple wives. Now this is not a post on why would God allow

that, but maybe the following scriptures will add some clarity to


Romans 15:4 says, “For whatsoever things were written aforetime

were written for our learning, that we through patience and

comfort of the scriptures might have hope”

Corinthians 10:11 says, “These things happened to them as

examples, and they were written for our instruction, on whom the

ends of the ages have come”

I think the bottom line here is that we don’t always have to go on

the field trip to learn the lesson. Let’s face it, human nature and

relationships are messy especially when we don’t wait on the

Lord. I think that is why the bible is so interesting in that it can

teach us things without us actually having to experience them. It

can relate and speak into our situations because it tells us about

imperfect people that lived imperfect lives. Either way, two

women fighting over one man is going to cause problems. People

claim the bible is unrelatable, but this scenario isn’t too far off of

today’s society, nowadays it’s not just two women fighting over

one man but multiple at that.

Nevertheless, in Hannah’s case, which we will soon find out, she

didn’t react like the world, she handled it with dignity and class.

In 1 Samuel verses 1-8 we glean our first couple of kingdom

woman qualities.

It says, (and I’m paraphrasing), that Hannah was barren and

Peninnah who was his other wife had multiple children. Elkanah

would worship and sacrifice to the LORD year after year. He

would provide for Peninnah his wife and all of her sons and

daughters. But with Hannah he gave a double portion, because he

loved her. Then in 1 Samuel 1:6, it
