Being the woman God called you to be can be quite challenging, exciting but challenging. It requires a change in mindset, a change in our thinking, a change in the way we look at the world and most definiteily a change in the way we look at ourselves. But I am convinced that if we take up this challenge, as God wants us to do, that we will be rewarded with a life that we only dreamed of living before!
I am on this particular journey right now as I believe God is saying to me ‘Enough, Kim! Enough of this fear, enough of this sadness, enough of this doubt! Behold I will do a new thing if you are willing to trust in Me!” Most Christians know Jeremiah 29:11 and can quote it in their sleep but I wonder how many reads on through to verse 14? In verses 12 through to 14 God talks about if we pray to Him and seek Him with all our heart then He will hear us and answer us then He goes on to say that He will bring us back from the ‘captivity’ of where we have been.
The woman God has called you to be is the woman who seeks God, the woman who trusts God for everything and stands firm in her faith. We sometimes tend to think that God has some mysterious “assignment” for us and that we need to spend our life trying to figure out what the mystery is. I firmly believe this is not true, God’s Word is very clear.
- Seek Him and you will find Him (Deutoronomy 4:29, 1 Chronicles 16:11, 1 Chronicles 22:19, 2 Chronicles 11:16, 2 Chronicles 15:2, Jeremiah 29:13, Matthew 6:33) This list is not an exhaustive list! It seems God wants to get a message through to us!
- Pray (This should really be a ‘no brainer’ but so many Christians don’t pray!)
Trust God (Proverbs 3:5-6, 2 Samuel 22:3, 1 Chronicles 5:20, Psalm 5:11 etc)
When we do these things our faith strengthens, we begin to know God more and from a stronger relationship with Him. I know it sounds way too simple to be true but it is so very simple, we humans are so good at overcomplicating things and we need to stop!
So if you want to walk, talk and think like the woman God called you to be start seeking God in every way you can and you will see great changes happen in your life!
