“Women of Position”
There is something about Women of Position and Clout that sticks with a person. First, because it is so rare to see a true “Woman of Position” in authority… by that I mean, the One true God has placed in her POSITION.
Her life force is that of Strategy and Hope that conquers everything from the smallest of obstacles to the largest of foes. She has armor that never fails her, to that end she also carries with her weapons of mass destruction that most of the body of Christ already have available to them, but SHE has made use of them.
Esther 5:1. Now it was on the third day that Esther put on her royal apparel and stood in the inner court of the king’s house, opposite the king’s house, and the king sat upon his royal throne in the royal house, opposite the gate of the house. 2. And it was so, when the king saw Esther the queen standing in the court, she obtained favor in his sight and the king held out to Esther the golden scepter that was in his hand. So Esther drew near and touched the top of the scepter. 3. Then the king said to her, What is it, queen Esther ? And what is your request? It will be even given to you to half the kingdom.
(This is a picture of Jesus and how He sees us each time we "enter in")
Women of Position, have purpose and plead the case for others to find their purposes. She is not weak minded. She does not give into the enemy but sees her purposes and callings as the RIGHTS she holds with the Father. This woman will walk in the room carrying with her the dignity and pride that comes from being a daughter of the Most High GOD and you WILL notice. Her stature and Her rights are afforded to her by Her Father (Father, God). She is not boastful or prideful, she is honest and charismatic because it is her right to be so. She will offer you the same rights she has… it is up to you to take the authority she has been given out of Freedom. It is her right to walk in the will of the Father, at any given time in her life.
She follows the Father (aside from being completely in love with the Father) because He has given her the authority and power to do so. She is not ashamed of her family roots, because no matter what has happened to her, the Father has forgiven her. You cannot hold anything over her head. She has dealt with it all by submitting to the Father, and the Father has already settled in her heart, the matter which you would condemn her for.
Women of Position, have loyalty & devotion woven into their hearts. This is done largely by times of great worship before the throne of the Most High God. Time spent humbling themselves in all out prostration before the Lord. You cannot fake this type of assurance from the Father. It is the shield of Faith which stands in front of her at all times. (Ephesians 6:16)
God has clothed her in righteousness and brought her to Him for inspection. She will always bear the mark of the Lord in battle. Always restore the balance of the enemies work in the lives of the people around her. She watches over Heaven’s gates and records the blessings of virtue, (behavior showing high moral standards) in the Heaven’s for the Heavenly Father. (in other words, she remembers what has been given to her)
She is not a camp ground the enemy likes to play hide and seek in, but an all-out war room!
When a Woman of Position has matured into her authority, it is often after a very dignified ranking ceremony, in which she inherits the breath and width and power, through the Most High Father God.
We over look this as a community because we are not used to the body of Christ excelling in the supernatural, but God has another plan and has pushed forth, in this day and hour the Kingdom call of the daughters of authority. This is not a simple call... to the ones who will receive it. These have shed their rights as individuals of this earth and assumed HIS power altogether.
Women of Position and Rank, have begun to wale on the enemy in such a way that the enemy naturally flees when they see her coming. She comes with an entourage of battlefield brigades. They are heavily armed and know how to use their accoutrements. They walk beside her, proud to be in the army of the Lord and in her company.
...She is well known throughout the ranks and they enjoy her privilege.
She is NOT of this world.
Her heart is filled with the Fire of the Lord and shows the world what God, has in fact written on her heart. She was given the hope of the Father and never loses courage to go forth to make this world a better place. His love surrounds her with peace and majesty and enables her to do all things He asks of her.
She is a force to be reckoned with… all women can come to this conclusion with the Father! It is their RIGHT to be “the chosen of God”… To walk in the preparation of the Gospel of Peace. This is the plan of the Father.
We as women, have been thrown to the side (kicked to the curb) and beheld ourselves as useless, but that is not what the Father has cried over us, for a generation. We were used by the enemy in such a way, that he may curse us and fill us with his own defeat. God says, "THAT WAS NOT HIS PLAN."
His plan was to fortify us, to walk where he walked, to shed light on the plans of the Father for each and every one of us. Each made special within HIS realm and authority. Some of us have known this authority for a while and can already bend life to the Father’s will, but others are just barely stepping into what the Father has called you to… Let the Gospel of Peace embed itself in you and accept your truest nature has always been with the Father. He knows you best and rallies behind each and every one of your cries!
It is so simple to sit with the Father and lean into HIS goodness. This is only part of the truth and the life the Father is calling you into… Oh allow HIS goodness to wash over you and tell you, WHO YOU ARE … day in and day out.
Suddenly, that flood of goodness will over take you and show you the way to the armory, He has built in your honor.
This is a call to those who will champion for the Lord all things Christ like. A Heavenly outcry to the body… to show the enemy, the heavenly force that compels us to “leave in the dust” all that the enemy has built with rocks and sticks.
There is nothing the Father doesn’t intend to break down. All the walls of the enemy are targets, including your own! He will shed anything with in you that is not HIS!
Go forth and create within yourself a picture of a PRINCESS WARRIOR and that will be what you aspire to … God creates from nothing an entire universe. He stretches out HIS hand to fight the enemy as He goes before you. Do not think He cannot create in you what was already there from the beginning.
HE HAS CALLED YOU OUT FROM THE DEPTHS TO BE THE WARRIORS
THAT ONLY THE FATHER CAN CREATE.
Decide now what you will be … Conqueror’s or the Conquered?
“I am enlisting Now” says the Father… Those women who will be Faithful and Free of the enemy in all places. A Woman of Position and Clout, that only God can create in them. Who will join me in the battlefield? Who will align their precious hearts with the Father’s will? Who will see the captives set free and made whole again?
This is the time to move up the Heavenly ranks, and seek your Father’s face, “for your time is NOW” says the Father! Overwhelming the enemy is foremost on the Father’s heart… shear courage and the will of the Father, going out before you. If, you can envision the heart of the Father resting on you in battle… you must know you are called to this Rank of Retaliation on the enemy.
This war is only done in the spirit, (Ephesians 6:12) we move, we seek the enemy out in the spirit and take with us all the armor afforded to us in THE WORD.
We ARE the enemy, of the enemy and nothing can come against us! Power up your armor now and war with me, for it is time for the enemy to run!
We have walked the desert long enough, you & I. Our time with the Father has proven a great stewardship in our hearts. We no longer fight for ourselves but for the millions who have no chance against the enemy. If this is the call of the Lord on your life, suit up… it’s armor time!
The Father is calling all those who will participate in the onslaught of the millions of enemies who have stormed the castle. We will leave them for useless in the dry places and chain them to the ground. We will have our day in the Lord and nothing shall by any means harm us! (Luke 10:19)
This is the will of the Lord in our lives!
To shape the continents in which we live and over power the enemy. A joint construct of the Father and His children. We (Women) may have been seen as nothing over the centuries but God had a plan from the beginning, to show the world a warrior that would not back down, would not let up, would not be challenged because they carry inside them an incorruptible armor.
This is the call to Christ I know. This is who I am.
I am calling YOU, to be that warrior you have been denying in your heart you are… denying the very part of you that cry’s out to God in Heaven for the RIGHT to be victorious over all the enemies plans and works in your lives, and in your families lives.
WHO ARE YOU WOMEN OF GOD? WHO ARE YOU DESTINED TO BECOME?
I CHALLENGE YOU NOW, TO ROLL UP YOUR SLEEVES AND ASK GOD WHO IS...WHO YOU WERE MEANT TO BE? GREAT AND MIGHTY WOMEN AND MEN OF GOD?
... OR A MOUSE WHO WILL SOME DAY LOSE ITS LIFE TO THE TRAP OF THE ENEMY?
It is time, Women of the Most HIGH GOD to bear your armor and show the enemy we can rise against him. No matter what the march, Remember, who your God is Women, and tackle your enemy head on… You do not have anything to be ashamed or embarrassed of … The Most High God has called you into to battle and he will reward you amply for your service!
The decision is yours… but be prepared, the Most High calls you into battle on HIS terms! This is not a negotiation submission, but a full on, total and complete compliance. No enemy can resist that … harboring ill will, in a spiritual battle destroys what God is doing in you and through you. You have to let go of anything in the past and hand it fully over to the Father.
This is who you are body of Christ. This is who you are called to be… FAITH FILLED WARRIORS FOR THE MOST HIGH GOD AND KING OF YOUR SALVATION!
Who do you think….............. YOU ARE?
Today, I got up and went into the office where I usually go to meet God. I waited there for him to come and give me the instruction for the day, and as usual He began to talk to me.
Now, I didn't sleep very well last night. So, I was tired this morning. I have learned to ignore those tired moments and just seek God. Which is what I was doing when suddenly out of the blue the Holy Spirit said this;
"Get up and go in the living room and take a breathe before the Lord calls on you again,
And know your willingness has been recorded in the lambs book of life. "
So, I did.
I wasn't searching for rest, but the Holy Spirit knew I was tired.
Now, the Holy Spirit doesn't always speak to me so abruptly. I was a bit shocked that He would say "STOP". I thought about the many things I had left undone, as I adjourned to my living room.
I turned on a show I like to watch and began to listen. They were playing worship music. I thought to myself, "perfect"... I closed my eyes and just followed along in my mind.
When the song was over they ministered a verse or two and continued to worship again. " I could do this all day" I thought, and continued to soak in the atmosphere.
From time to time, in the next thirty minutes I did a quick check in my spirit man to see if I should go back to work. "NOPE"... So, there I sat for an hour. Till the "work" of being with God began to melt away. As I rested, I sensed the position of the Holy Spirit over this instruction.
It was time to take a REST. I had been so interested in NOT missing God and honestly wanted to dig into HIS goodness so much, that I was actually overwhelming myself with my own responsibilities. I was beginning to walk in stress and not HIS power, love and a sound mind.
Often, I wonder how things work in a heavenly environment, where no one is anxious or filled with anxiety over getting the job done. Well, I am going to say this out loud... "THEY REST UPON THE LORD". SEE! Nothing unscriptural about it. They have a million and one things to do but they rest in the Lord as part of what God wants them to do.
The effects of the rest I am encountering as we speak, is a moment of clarity between myself and the Holy Spirit, to speak to you regarding rest.
As many of you know, God is not predictable in the sense that he often will change things up. I experience that nearly every week at church, as the worship team leads and the Pastor reveals what the Holy Spirit has given him to relay and teach us about. Revelation of the word doesn't always come by pouring out over the scriptures. Sometimes, we have to take a step back and breathe. Allowing the Lord to spend time with us, honestly doing nothing but ministering to our tired bodies.
Allowing our hearts a moment of refreshing as the Holy Spirit just sinks in deep and replenishes the good stuff. Refocusing our thoughts and letting joy grow.
The Joy of the Lord is our Strength, until we forget to water it. Here is where the "Living Water" comes in to respond. The word says " I AM the true vine and My Father is the Farmer" (John 15:1)
" He removes every branch in Me if it does not bear fruit and He prunes every branch that bears fruit so that it would bear more fruit. You are already pruned because of the word which I have spoken to you"
I would like to think that today was about two things. While I rested in HIm, Jesus was pruning. Picking out stress and other weeds, that were trying to find there way into the garden we have created together.
God, often talks to me about His word and what it means, but I believe if we are to journey with HIM, we must follow Him in the little things, as well as the Big. As I obeyed God in the small things... simply walking to the living room and resting ... I found God was showing me the road to obedience doesn't always lie in the Big steps we take.
I am about 70% introvert at heart and could stay alone most of the day... Talking to God, and never really get tired of it... content in the environment, of Me and the Holy Spirit.
Social environments can spark a kind of social anxiety, I don't really enjoy.
I will admit, some days are worse than others.
The social anxiety is especially aggravated when God gives me something to share for a people group . I am Highly sensitive and intuitive by nature, so being around people is always an emotional grab bag. The spectrum of emotions could be endless in a given day, especially when giving out of the gifts God has given to me.
Sharing publicly is a monster of a task for me. The thought of not sharing is disappointing at best because I would not be obedient to my Father... and I just can't bear the thought of disappointing Him, intentionally. So, I march on... assuming, sharing publicly will get easier over time.
Yesterday, was one of those days when God had something for "the group".
My heart was in it 100% but I stammered and revealed the uneasiness and less confident nature that is normal for me in this type of environment. I came home and passionately did a video blog, which I instantly decided wasn't good enough for the world to see. So, you can imagine the stress and unrest that was forming.
So, while I AM writing (because for me it's a form of release, and for writers everything is subject matter) ... I didn't get here on my own. I am not sharing because I have to, but because I want to
and I am happy to ...
God reveals His goodness, when we cooperate with HIM in every step. Being obedient in "Rest" is just as important as being obedient in the Larger steps of Ministry, and it's OK to rest! God expects us to enjoy our lives and have fun in what we do. He actually give us grace to follow HIM into the goodness. Wherever the Lord leads, He will provide for us. This is HIS good promise to each of us.
Developing with in yourself a pattern of His voice, is a good place to begin.
There is grace for that ... by giving yourself the room to think you heard from God, but it turns out you didn't! Give yourself time to get to know the Holy Spirit before you make the big decisions, but get ready to flow. When you give the Holy Spirit an open door, you will get to the point He will tell you to rest in the Lord, and you will obey. (Remember, He is your friend and He loves you!)
