I trust God that the week has been great for you. Not sure I have wished you my sisters happy international women's day, Happy International Women's Day. I want you to remember that you matter to God and He created you as a woman for a purpose: to influence, nurture, help, support, shield.....
It would interest you to know that 50% of the world's population are women, the other 50% are born by women! 😁 What a privilege!
To the admonition of this week:
Genesis 3 revealed to us that, Eve engaged in a conversation with the serpent like most of us do (though not necessarily with the serpent 🤔) and she choose being 'socially accepted' (to know good and evil) over being spiritually aligned (sticking to God's instruction not to eat of the tree).
This is the reality of most believers today. We engage in conversations (mind & mouth) that questions our spiritual stand and as a result begin to doubt the Word spoken to us by God.
Do not be deceived, social acceptance does not connotes spiritual alignment. You can be perceived as good by many but far from God. Social acceptance glorifies status quo,
people, facade with much focus on the outward perception rather than the inward (true) change.
Reflection: Are you more concerned about what people think/say ? Do you strive to please people rather than God? Is your standard the trend or the Word of God?
When faced with conflict of interest do you allow societal practice determine your choice of action?
The answer to these questions is a pointer to where you stand.
It's no news that being socially acceptable is the new 'cool' but remember we aren't here to be cool. We are called to show forth the Father's light and draw multitude to him.
Spiritual alignment should be our no 1 priority, then other things will follow. (Matthew 6:33)
God bless you.
Loads of love,
