We could hardly see as we backed out of my friend’s driveway last night. I was so thankful that I had two more friends with me and that I was not driving. As we got headed out on the interstate for home we talked about the weekend’s events and how much we had seen God’s hand in all the goings on. Starting on Thursday night and continuing throughout the weekend we had great opportunities for fellowship. Although the main thrust was a men’s conference for our husband, we found that as we sat around my friend’s living room it was a weekend for God’s women as well. As we prayed and ministered to one another, the fellowship became oh so very sweet. Nothing like a group of women enjoying one another’s company and asking God to show up. Expecting God to show up.
Oh beloved, how do you see yourself? As the wife of a mighty man of God? His calling is obvious and as his wife you are behind him 100%? Did you know? Have you heard? God has called you as well! He has wild plans for you as a woman of God that only He can achieve. Maybe you’ve heard contrary words, words that do not uplift or encourage. Maybe you’ve always thought God meant you to be almost second class in your heavenly citizenship. Yet in your heart of hearts there is a dream, a fire in your belly as well – something you know God is whispering into your heart that just won’t go away. God says to you this morning, I AM that I AM. I AM your Abba Father. I AM also your Bread of Life. I AM your keeper and your benefactor. But I AM calling you out of darkness into My marvelous light. I have gotten you through the storms, I’ve seen you comfort the afflicted, I’ve watched you nurture and cherish your husband, your family, your friends. All this has been a proving ground of My work within you. Now is the time to step forward into all that I AM within you. Write that story, share that testimony, give that gift, speak that Word of faith, walk the walk for I AM with you all the way.
God loves you and He’s for you. That’s why He’s calling you. That’s why He’s prepared you. That’s why you have a story to tell and a message to share. Pray and watch and then move out as God gives you opportunity. Don’t despise the little things. You are a faith partner with your spouse and a faith talker with your Savior. Go forth in His wisdom power and might as He sets the captives free through your testimony of God’s enduring love and everlasting care.
