Every woman is remarkable. In your own way you are unique and different; curious and impressive; noticeable and significant. Mostly experienced by the situations that shape you, sustained by the brushes of life. Only you can confidently embrace your own greatness, If you release the fear and failings that painfully grips you and holds you prisoner. and grasp these five declarations.
Do you believe you were made for a purpose?
God places within us a purpose for which we were made, to be who He wants us to be. Our role is to not allow any circumstance or person to convince us that we have no purpose. Recently, I am attempting to boost my biking road confidence. And it is scary, particularly when I am biking down a busy road with traffic that can distract me from maintaining my focus on what I am doing.
1| You are cherished, valued and treasured
And can change the world you live in. With your distinctiveness and singularity. In your personal and professional affairs. The renowned story of Esther was one that depicts a young woman who stood alone, but with God she penetrated the dark times she lived in. Because of destiny, she had the opportunity of coming before the king. Her cousin Mordecai entered her into a beauty contest. And from this she became his queen – the most beautiful one he chose above hundreds.
2| You are created with love and tender care
With a brilliant and wise plan mapped out precisely by God especially for you. There is nothing random about your life. Everything was thoroughly thought out and on purpose. God knows who you will become and how He will use you. To impact and influence others. With every gift, talent and interest that inspires you. Including those hidden desires you view as unimportant or insubstantial.
3| You are designed for a specific reason
When you discern uncertainty, where you might be struggling or unsure of the direction that God would have you take, read the bible. With many stories, Esther is my absolute favourite. Because what she did altered the course of history. I often wonder, did she realise the assignment that God had entrusted her with. Faithfully she remained attentive to God’s voice, detecting the sacred reason for God’s plan to use her for a purpose. We read she was extremely beautiful and this was notable from the inside out. She progressed knowing God would never leave her or abandon her, He was with her. And He promises that He will do the same for you and me.
4| You are empowered to take action
Once you comprehend your God given identity and know that you will never march into your destiny alone. Only with God’s presence and power, you can take action.
- Fight for your purpose.
- Fight for your dreams.
- Fight through prayer.
To dissipate the plans of the enemy for your life and unleash God’s purposes specifically for you. You will stand fast in tough times to conquer oppressing situations and defy strongholds. Because the battles you contend with are in the power that God places within you. With a Godly mentor, Mordecai wisely advising Esther, she was able to rise to the task. Though daunting, she was born for such a time as this, and so can you!
5| You are deliberately situated in this current time
Positive self-talk empowers us to enter our daily lives with God’s strength and purposes. If you believe that God has a miraculous plan for being where you are today, Then that is where we can reveal God’s heart and His love and healing to a broken and pain stricken world. The more you walk in God’s purpose, whether speakable or unspeakable. Living and doing everything with passion. Waiting and trusting God for providence and provision. Esther spent a considerable amount of time fasting, praying and seeking God for the right time to act. Behind the scenes God was at work. You will realise His splendid plans and the unmatchless comparision of living every day with Him. That leads you directly to His purpose.
- Esther’s bravery influenced the king. God raises our voice to instil others with His hope.
