EMPOWERING LIVES WITH PURPOSE:
Are we building our foundation each day, adding to the structure God tells us to build? I pray we can all pause a moment to consider what this means from the Word of God.
“The quality of materials used by anyone building on this foundation will soon be made apparent, whether it has been built with gold, silver, and costly stones, or wood, hay, and straw.”
“Their work will soon become evident, for the Day will make it clear, because it will be revealed by blazing fire! And the fire will test and prove the workmanship of each builder.” (1 Cor. 3:12-13)
Paul teaches us in Corinthians.  Wisdom will build her house with divine substance (gold), redemption’s fruit (silver), and transformed lives (costly stones).
Wood, hay, and straw are emblems of the work of the flesh, the building materials of men- not of God. They grow up from the ground, which God cursed.
Building our temple should be done with excellence and caution as we build our foundation. You are God’s temple! You hold the Holy Spirit within you if you belong to Jesus Christ as your Savior.
 It is both quality and durability that God commends. Fire will cause the better material to glow brighter, but the inferior material will be consumed. Read it and apply this to “things” in your life.
How we build and what we build matters to God. If you are not building with the true foundation of Christ, you are building with the wrong materials.
May we trust God each day as we continue our firm foundation- a building erected in Jesus Christ and upon Him and we build this for eternity with Christ.

EMPOWERING LIVES WITH PURPOSE:
We often wish we could be in different circumstances instead of looking for opportunities to serve God where we are.
This used to be my life. I always looked at the lives of others and thought, “wow, if I was in their life, I could serve God wholeheartedly.” Problem was, I never thought I was qualified enough, spiritual enough, or worthy enough to enter into my own calling. I had “roadblocks” preventing me from walking into my purpose for many years.
We each have a calling on our life. God desires us to follow after Him. We each have obstacles and hurdles that aren’t easy to overcome, but… “with God all things are possible.”
Whether they be mental challenges, spiritual challenges, or physical challenges, we all battle something. “With God, ALL things are possible.”
If we choose to place emphasis on the difficulties we won’t move into the place God has waiting for us. No matter what a person’s situation is in life, we must have a heart that is willing to be faithful to God in all things.
“Since a great price was paid for your redemption, stop having the mindset of a slave.” (1 Corinthians 7:23)
Release the thoughts that trip you up! Give them to Jesus once and for all – and GO! Serve! Reach the lost. You can do this.
“So everyone should continue to live faithful in the situation of life in which they were called to follow Jesus!” (1 Corinthians 7:20)

EMPOWERING LIVES WITH PURPOSE:
As we walk through this life, we are all too often faced with foolish behavior – whether it be in the actions of others around us or in the lives of some we know, or maybe in our own behavior. Foolish behavior is everywhere these days.
 God tells us that avoiding such actions of foolish behavior would be wise for us.
” Whoever trusts in his own mind is a fool, but he who walks in wisdom will be delivered” ( Proverbs 28:26)
The Bible has much to say about fools. The Bible defines this word as “someone who disregards God’s Word.” The opposite of foolishness is wisdom.
” For the foolishness of God is wiser than man’s wisdom and the weakness of God is stronger than men’s strength.” (1 Corinthians 1:18)
Foolishness is completely being out of phase with God’s wisdom. In order to step out of the actions of foolish behavior, we must ask God for His wisdom. We can also pray on behalf of others we know who continuously exhibit foolishness in their lives. As I wrote in yesterday’s post, God is waiting to freely give you wisdom. He tells us to ask for it in James 1:5.
“If any of us lacks wisdom, let Him ask God who gives generously,  to anyone who asks.” ( James 1:5)
Ask God to grant wisdom and reject foolishness in your actions or in the behavior of others you know. As you move forward in life, this will benefit not only you but those surrounding you.

EMPOWERING LIVES WITH PURPOSE:
We each face different temptations in a day and we as women of Christ, need to combat them with the same tools we have access to through Christ.
Identifying the enemy’s snares as what they are is the first step. Second is we ask for Godly wisdom to squelch them and then third, have faith that God will see you through.
Many times we could walk right into a trap, unaware of Satan and his ploys to ensnare us.  We need to stay on our game, knowing there is an enemy prowling around with all force trying to take us out. He is not happy with you if you are serving Jesus, you must know this and be aware of it.
Thank God He gives us the Holy Spirit to lead us from temptation.  He NEVER leaves you to fight alone. When you are tempted, He provides an escape route for you.
“We all experience times of testing, which is normal for every human being. But God will be faithful to you. He will screen and filter the severity, nature, and timing of every test or trial you face so that you can bear it. And each test is an opportunity to trust Him more, for along with every trial God has provided for you a way of escape that will bring you out of it victorious.” (1 Corinthians 10:13)
Wow, powerful scripture, right?
We need to pray for God’s wisdom daily to inject those words of strength into our minds when we need them most, in James 1:5 you will see God will not hold out on you. He wants you to ask Him for it. Ask ahead of time. Ask Him now for wisdom to refute the temptation before it comes.
“If any of you lacks wisdom, let Him ask God who gives generously to anyone who asks.” (James 1:5)
Have the faith in God- that He means what He says and He will get you through the moment of tempting. He fulfills His promises. Resist the devil and he will flee.
Stay alert! “The enemy prowls around like a roaring lion, looking for someone to devour”… ( 1Peter 5:8) please don’t let it be you.

EMPOWERING LIVES WITH PURPOSE:
Unforgiveness in your heart is like having poison in your veins. It can lead to death if you don’t seek the antidote. Forgiving people who have hurt us is extremely hard to do. You can feel pain from what they have caused you, making it difficult to release true forgiveness.
Trying to take control or revenge on a specific person will only further complicate the destruction of yourself. God clearly says in His Word, “Vengeance is mine; I will repay says the Lord” (Romans 12:19)
No one claims it’s easy to forgive a wrong that comes against us; however, you can counteract the poison by moving forward into forgiving anyone who has offended you. How does one do this?
Trust God and choose to forgive, God will take care of the rest, in His time. By doing this you are taking an action in the form of obedience. Look at it as your “seed” of obedience in this step of following in God’s Word.
Don’t allow your unforgiveness to hinder your own faith from working; creating a barrier. Confess it- then go to the person immediately- do not wait and allow bitterness to brew. Don’t give the devil any foothold. Unforgiveness is an awful poison dear sister. A wicked poison to YOU.
God’s word clearly tells us throughout to forgive and be forgiven. Get rid of all the death that could come from unforgiveness, bitterness, and resentment. Restore all communication with your Creator as you confess your sin. Give the other offending party over to God. Your life will become alive as the burden is lifted from your heart and mind and you can then walk in the refreshing restoration with your Father. Please pray and leave the rest to Him, He will take care of your situation. Do your part and be right with God.

EMPOWERING LIVES WITH PURPOSE:
There are many causes of insecurity,  but chief among them is our failure to fully trust God.
“Blessed is the man who trusts in the Lord, and whose hope is in the Lord, for he shall be like a tree planted by the waters, which spreads out its roots by the river, and will not fear when he comes, but its leaves will be green, and will not be anxious in the year of drought, nor will it cease from yielding fruit.” (Jeremiah 17:7-8)
God made us to love Him and love others. One of the main reasons for our insecurities is being self-conscious. Self-consciousness is when you are focused on yourself. When we are focused on ourselves, we are not loving God and loving others, or showing them to be more worthy.  Phil. 2:3 tells us to do nothing from selfish ambition or conceit but in humility count others more significant than ourselves.
Another cause of insecurities is relying on wealth and possessions instead of God. The world encourages us to strive to be number one in what we do. God richly is the One who provides everything for us to enjoy. (1 Timothy 6:17)
God loves you just the way you are. He created you with all your beauty and attributes. Insecurities come when we are preoccupied with the “securities” of this world. We can never obtain them all.
Our righteousness is what pleases God. Courageously surrender your insecurities to Him. Hear what the apostle Paul says to us, ” I count everything as loss because of the surpassing worth of knowing Christ Jesus my Lord. (Philippians 3:7-8)
To overcome your insecurity, remember always, what God says and never forget God’s promise to you. He will keep those in perfect peace whose minds are steadfast because they trust in Him. (Isaiah 26:3)

Empowering Lives With Purpose:
Doubt is an experience we all face at times. Even those of us who have mighty faith in God can struggle with doubt. As Mark wrote in his gospel, sometimes we must cry out to God, “I do believe; help me to overcome my unbelief.”
The enemy loves to stir up unbelief and fears that are often a result of our past failures. These things can haunt our minds and more often than we realize cause “doubt in the darkness.”
Why do we doubt? Often, it is because the opposition wants to take your eyes off Christ. Do you ever feel the enemy attack when God is getting ready to do something in your life?
In Luke 1:11-17,  Zacheriah doubted the “word” that was given to him because his age and his wife’s age were so beyond a possible pregnancy by world standards.  As a result of his doubt, the angel said, “Zachariah’s voice would be muted until God’s promise was fulfilled.”
Is this you? Do you allow your human reason to overshadow your faith in God?
No matter how logical your own reasons seem, God has “made foolish” things of this world! (1 Corinthians 1:20.)
The remedy for doubt is faith sisters! Faith comes by hearing the word of God. (Romans 10:17) Increase your faith to overcome the doubt. You may hear me say this and write this often and I reiterate it again and again; don’t doubt in the darkness what God shows you in the light! “With God… ALL THINGS ARE POSSIBLE.” (Matthew 19:26)

EMPOWERING LIVES WITH PURPOSE:
God has a role to be birthed in each of us and in YOU!
He is removing chains that are holding you back and YOU will change history. Do you believe this?
Throughout God’s word, the courage and faith that is exemplified inside His Word, is incredible. What is courage? The quality of mind or spirit that enables a person to face difficulty,  danger, pain etc. without fear; bravery. And Biblical courage is the ability to do something brave out of a motivation of the heart.
What is Faith? The Bible says, “Now faith is the substance of things hoped for the evidence of things unseen. ”  (Hebrews 11:1)
Now is the time to speak declaration over your own life. What has been will be no more and you will echo this declaration out of your mouth: “God is changing history and shaping it through my obedience.” Are you being nudged to do a mighty work for God? It may even be a simple little act, but it’s something.
Believe that God WILL change history through your life, but you must be obedient,  and take the first step of courage,  having faith that you’ll get there. Walk by faith into your God-given destiny.
Seek God to receive divine wisdom and authority from Him. Please release anything that is holding you back.  Nothing is too complicated for Jesus.. not your current health, not your physical abilities,  not your mind, not your current situations, nothing…Give it to Jesus. Give it all to Him. May God impart His wisdom and may you be fully awake, completely alert to what He is speaking to you.
If you are moved, do you think God might be speaking? You may wish to read Courageous Steps of Faith and be fueled into releasing the chains and stepping into your role that God is waiting to use you in. I’m praying for you.

Calling on a prayer partner to pray is biblical. It makes a difference.
“Again I tell you if two of you on earth agree about anything you ask for, it will be done for you by My Father in Heaven.” (Matthew 18:19)
The Bible teaches one of the first things we need to learn about praying with others, is “unity.” Jesus said, “if you agree it will be done.”
I was so in awe of this scripture recently because of the realization I came to. I learned how important prayer partners truly are.
The word “agree” is very important here. Before entering in heavy prayer, we must be certain our prayer partner is 100% in agreement with our faith and their faith in Jesus Christ our Lord. We must agree that only Jesus is the way- the truth and the life. John 14:6. We must agree that the Bible is inerrant. No mistakes, without fault in its original translation and INSPIRED by God.
We must believe as we unite in a faith-filled prayer that Jesus was born of a virgin-lived a sinless life and died for our sins and rose from the dead and that whosoever believes will have eternal life.
Why is this so important when entering into prayer with someone else? It’s very important because the two of you must have equal faith trusting God will accomplish what He promises. How can you have that kind of faith if you don’t believe the same thing? Think about it. Faith is so vital in prayer.
 The Bible says “one can put a 1000 to flight and two can put 10,000 to flight.” (Deuteronomy 32:30). Do the math and see how powerful 2 or more believers can be when they join together about their concerns.
Ask a strong believer to pray with you, in agreement.
Unity in the body of Christ is extremely important to God. That is why we at Women World Leaders are very insistent and persistent about what we believe and being united as sisters in Christ through prayer. We don’t take prayer lightly. We pray with faith for one another. We carry each other’s burdens.
“I in them and you in me–so that they may be brought to complete unity. Then the world will know that you sent me and have loved them even as you have loved me.” (John 17:23)
Wow, this scripture completely describes the importance of unity. Please find a prayer partner that’s united in faith with you.  We have many women who desire to pray together in unity to accomplish great and mighty things as God has promised. If you are one of those committed prayer warriors, we need you.

Think about this, pray about it and please, be a prayer partner or request a prayer partner with another believer.

So He said to me, this is the Word of the Lord to Zerubbabel, “Not by might, nor by power, but by My Spirit, says the Lord Almighty.” (Zachariah 4:6)
There have been many times in this ministry I have been afraid that I’d be unable to do what God has called me to do. There have been fantastic, huge hurdles to jump over, mountains to move, and the rough seas to cross. I’ve often felt like I didn’t have what it takes to move into the life that God has for me. Can you relate in any way? Have you felt this way in life? In accomplishing a task in which you know you were meant to do but not feel qualified to do it?
 If you do-be grateful that you feel this way because it means you are humble and you would need to be dependent on God.
Rejoice if you feel inadequate to the task because it means that you’d have to depend on God to do whatever it is that’s in front of you. Your situation is different than mine and yours may be getting through a health crisis or a broken relationship or helping another through one. It could mean starting a new business venture. There could be so many “somethings” we feel unqualified to deal with.
Whatever yours may be and although it may be different than mine. God will help you.
“The One who calls you is faithful and He will do it.” (1 Thessalonians 5:24)
We don’t have to make our life happen, we don’t have to strive to figure out our purpose. God knows our purpose. God will guide us and illuminate our path as we look to Him in worship and praise. Not by might or power, but by His Spirit! Read the opening verse again.
Someone needs this word today!
