The lady: Her home, her career and her call.
Continued from part 2.
Remember that I said that God has already put in you what you need to be that virtuous woman he created you to be.
Next, you have to admit that having a good home is possible. You have what it takes to create that beautiful home you have always dreamt of.
If you keep thinking that that home that was described in Proverbs 31 is unattainable, you will lock up the potential you have in you to create that kind of home.
God is a creator. He created the whole world out of nothing with his word. Everything we see that was created was hidden in God as potential which He released by his word.
Gen 1:2 And the earth was without form, and void; and darkness [was] upon the face of the deep. And the Spirit of God moved upon the face of the waters.
Then he created you in his image and likeness. He put that same potential to create inside of you.
Gen 1:26 And God said, Let us make man in our image, after our likeness: and let them have dominion over the fish of the sea, and over the fowl of the air, and over the cattle, and over all the earth, and over every creeping thing that creepeth upon the earth.
This is why a woman is said to be transform things. Give her a house, she will give you a home. Give her a sperm and she will give you a baby.
We have that built-in capacity to create. Imagine if God felt he could not do anything about the darkness? He would have carried all these beautiful things and people inside of him, locked up without expression. He would have been alone still brooding over the darkness. Unfortunately, this describes how the lives of some ladies are. They are brooding in darkness with their full potential locked up.
I thank God for this conference because we have suddenly realized that we can be far much more than we thought we could.
So how do I create what I desire in my home?
1. Act like the God you resemble. SPEAK
Rom 4:17 (As it is written, I have made thee a father of many nations,) before him whom he believed, [even] God, who quickeneth the dead, and calleth those things which be not as though they were.
Gen 1:3 And God said, Let there be light: and there was light.
God knew what he wanted and He spoke. And whatever he said came to pass and whatever he called what he created maintained that name and NATURE.
Adam that God created in his likeness practiced this and it also worked for him.
Gen 2:19 And out of the ground the Lord God formed every beast of the field, and every fowl of the air; and brought [them] unto Adam to see what he would call them: and whatsoever Adam called every living creature, that [was] the name thereof.
Gen 2:20 And Adam gave names to all cattle, and to the fowl of the air, and to every beast of the field; but for Adam there was not found an help meet for him.
So my sisters, open your mouth and create. Speak the kind of home you want, the kind of children you want, the kind of husband you want.
As a single lady,speak what you want. As a married lady, speak what you want your husband to become. Most importantly, speak the virtuous woman that is in you out. Speak what you want to see in your life. Are you tired of being lazy? Call the strength buried in your spirit out.
Prov 31:17 She girdeth her loins with strength, and strengtheneth her arms.
Are you always confused, call wisdom and understanding out from your spirit.
2. Go to God for grace
You can’t do this by your power and on your own. You need God’s help to express what you have inside.
You need to be empowered for productivity. The word says we should come boldly to access the help to be all we can be.
3. Open your heart to information.
Nobody knows it all hence we need each other and platforms like this to increase our capacity.
The greatest source of information on your abilities is the word of God which contains the power to perform what it says.
Study the word, read books, add value to yourself, improve your skills etc. Read books on homemaking, marriage, men, women,children at different levels of development.
I always buy puff puff for my kids because they love it but I was not impressed with what I was getting so one day, after buying one terrible puff puff my boys refused to eat, I just picked up my phone and used Google to search for how to make puff puff and that was the end.
If I let my boys have their way, I will fry puff puff everyday because Mommy’s puff puff is so nice and sweet. Now, they ask me to make all manner of things.
I speak restoration of peace and love in Jesus name.
What you need to create that home you so desire is not out of reach at all. All you need to do as a virtuous woman who is irresistible to go the extra mile. You have what it takes to create the kind of family that your kids and husband will enjoy. The home that your husband will always want to come to can be created by you.
I speak peace to marriages that are having problems right now. I command the devil to take his hands off those families. I pray for wisdom and knowledge of what to do to restore things.
Prov 31:11 The heart of her husband doth safely trust in her, so that he shall have no need of spoil.
Prov 31:12 She will do him good and not evil all the days of her life.
Prov 31:13 She seeketh wool, and flax, and worketh willingly with her hands.
Prov 31:14 She is like the merchants’ ships; she bringeth her food from afar.
Amplified bible says she is loaded with foodstuffs and brings her family food from a far country.
This shows that she is a resourceful woman who loves information. She seeks wool and flax. She is always searching.
Spice up your home, marriage and life by being resourceful. You do not have to travel anymore to learn some things, you have the whole world in your phone.
Do yourself a big favour and read prov 31 from Amplified bible.
4. Do the word.
After speaking, asking for grace and getting informed, you still have to do the word. Practice what you have learnt. We have been bombarded with so much eye opening information. If all you do is celebrate the information without doing, you will lose what you have received.
Jas 1:22 But be ye doers of the word, and not hearers only, deceiving your own selves.
Jas 1:23 For if any be a hearer of the word, and not a doer, he is like unto a man beholding his natural face in a glass:
Jas 1:24. For he beholdeth himself, and goeth his way, and straightway forgetteth what manner of man he was.
Jas 1:25. But whoso looketh into the perfect law of liberty, and continueth [therein], he being not a forgetful hearer, but a doer of the work, this man shall be blessed in his deed.
The blessing will show in the doing. You will be so surprised how the virtue in you will jump out when you practice what you have been hearing.
It is never enough to just hear.
