Today we will conclude on the counsel for women perceiving the call of God upon their lives.
6) Clarify whether the call you are perceiving is a full-time or part-time call; pulpit or helps ministry? Headship or associate call? Does it include marriage? Not everyone will be called to marry. If you are called to marry, then your husband must be in full support of your ministry. If you think you are not called to marry, you can only verify whether you are celibate or not by asking yourself if you have ever been moved by a man. If the answer is positive then you are not celibate. Find your place in God and stay there!
7) Educate yourself in the light of what God is leading you to.
8) Understand and excel at your multiple roles of minister, wife, mother, etc.
9) Relate with perfect understanding with your spouse and pray for him for a Joseph spirit. Joseph was willing to cooperate with the vision of God for His wife.
10) Remain humble under God’s hands; don’t be puffed up with knowledge and gifts.
11) Relate with like-minded people; avoid groups with passions that can lure you away from your course. Can you compare Deborah and Dinah?
12) Separate yourself unto your calling. Jehu separated himself to fulfil destiny.
13) Receive covenants that God has for you in the call. Genesis 12:1-3 presents the covenants that God gave Abraham when He called him. You should have yours also.
14) Absolute dependence on God for provision, direction and progress.
Lastly, you are no more common, you have become a bond servant of the Lord, not your wish anymore, but HIS WILL!
PRAYER: Lord, I make myself available. Lead me into the fullest expression of Your calling upon my life in Jesus’ name. Amen.
