Good morning all-
Today I dedicate this blog to every woman that has felt insecure in who they are or in their relationships. It's time we look to The Lord for our worth and understand that insecurity will take away your passion, joy and self-esteem. It will rob you of seeing how you are loved and what you mean to Christ. The world is robbing woman of being women and it's time to take a stand and remember we are the daughters of the Almighty God.
Yesterday, I was talking to a good friend and we found ourselves talking about the breakdown of the family, reversed roles and how the movement to liberate us has also robbed us of security, protection and being cherished as women. We have gained great strides in our careers but at what cost? Was it worth it? In my opinion not really. I have gained success, money and many other benefits from working but I have lost with my children, protection and being cherished for being a woman. I worry about aging and what my future will hold. Many have experienced broken relationships, adultery, abuse and divorce and the cost has been great. Children have suffered, relationships have suffered and generations are suffering. I guess satan really knew how to make the pins fall.
And when you look at the canvas and all the many ways our roles have changed it adds up to competition between men and women, insecurity in relationships and a lack of trust. Not very positive if you ask me. That's where Christ must come in and meet us where we are. We must find our roles and our purpose in Him. He can reverse the hurt, take away competitiveness and bring forth restoration in our hearts and our relationships.
The Bible is clear that we are in the end times. When our last day will be, I haven't a clue. But I do know one thing, people are dying in the Middle East for their faith, chaos is erupting around the world and people are looking for something but not for Jesus. Our purpose is to be the lights of the world. We need to understand that the Ancient of Days is the same yesterday, today and tomorrow. As flawed human beings we will make choices that go against what we know to be true but if we have faith that God can do what He says, our faith will grow and He will receive glory.
Let's take back what we've lost and ask God to restore women to the purpose He had for us. Let's pray for the men and ask God to make them men that seek after Him and let's pray for our children that they find Him, not because we love Him but because they choose to love Him too. There is no better time to look for Christ and to find Him in our insecurities. He made us and knew us in the womb. He knows are direction and He knows the time that direction will be fulfilled. Let's take off the cloak of fear and put on the armor of Christ!
I hope today this blog reveals something that you have been hiding. I hope you confess your insecurity to our Lord and I hope that you come to realize that being a woman is a beautiful and powerful role. Adam was lonely without Eve and God made communion between man and woman to solidify His plans. Not all will marry but I bet within your life there has been a man that made you stand up and feel like a warrior. Be that woman today and fight the good fight. Jesus is waiting for us to reveal Him to the world. Are you ready?
Matthew 18:20 NIV
For where two or three gather in my name, there am I with them."
I'm running out of time...I'll be back tonight.
