I love to go to seminars! I love hearing excellent God-speakers and enjoying the company of other believers. There is something really awesome about worshipping with thousands of women. Don’t get me wrong. I worship with my husband and the men of my church every Sunday and love every minute. But there’s just something special about worshipping with girls. I love it that God made me a woman.
Several years ago the topic of one of these seminars (Beth Moore, 2014 Simulcast, Fort Wayne, IN) was being women of God. During that time of worship, these words were spoken, together, by 11,000 women (and a few brave men).
I am a WOMAN OF GOD. REDEEMED by JESUS CHRIST. LOVED, PURSUED, and CHOSEN, EQUIPPEDwith WORDS OF LIFE. Clothed in STRENGTH and DIGNITY, commissioned HERE and NOW. GIFTED by the SPIRIT, FORGIVEN, and UNBOUND!
I have these words framed and placed on the wall above my desk. To remind me how much He loves me. He has made me His child. I am His little Princess. He loves me so much. He protects me from all directions – my front, back, top, bottom, and sides. He wants to guide my thoughts, words, and actions.
Isaiah 41:10 tells us what God, the King, wants for us.
- He wants us to keep in mind that He is always present. There is no need for fear.
- Discouragement cannot/does not exist in the presence of the Great Encourager.
- He has already won every battle we will ever face.
- He gives us all the strength we will need for every endeavor.
- In every situation His help is immediate.
- He is, has been, and always will be, victorious!
Abba, Father, I give You all my trials, troubles, and discouragement. Deafen my ears and mind to those thoughts that are planted by the evil one. Let me hear only Your voice. Thank You for adopting me and making me Your princess. Amen! Yes!
Blessings to you and yours!
