Summary: This is a sermon of encouragement for women of God who need to be reminded of how special they are in His sight!
Precious Lord, eternal God, our Creator-
Today we give great thanks for the many women you have transformed into vessels of sacred service and true worship!
Thank you for Eve, the first mother of us all.
Thank you for Sarah, the woman of old who carried the seeds of Abraham.
Thank you for Mary, who carried Your son in the flesh.
Thank you for Hagar, who dared to trust you in her impossible situation.
Thank you for Evangelist Mary Magdalene, once filled with demon spirits whose life was changed by knowing Jesus.
Thank you for the courage of Deborah.
Thank you for our present day sisters who work, others who raise children, those who pastor churches, those who are missionaries, those who make a joyful noise unto You Lord...Thank You for them all!
In this time of worship and celebration, we exalt You! Now be with us, Your people as we commune together.
This I ask by the power and precious Name of Jesus!
Amen. And So It Is!
(But the main thought is derived from Acts 2:17)
We find in the Books of Proverbs another biblical mystery revealed to us- King Solomon, David’s son says in Proverbs 1:5-6 Let those who are wise listen to these proverbs and become even wiser. And let those who are wise listen to these proverbs and become even wiser. And let those who understand receive guidance (6) by exploring the depth of meaning in these proverbs,parables, wise sayings and riddles.
It is here, right in the middle of Proverbs 4, you will find the real power and beauty of this book, hidden in the true meaning of the word, "wisdom" there is the Incarnate Word of the New Testament. Does it not say in I Corinthians 1:30-God alone made it possible for you to be in Christ Jesus. FOR OUR BENEFIT GOD MADE CHRIST TO BE WISDOM ITSELF. He is the one who made us acceptable to God. He made us pure and holy, and He gave himself to purchase our freedom!(?)
(Proverbs 4:8) Exalt her (Wisdom/Christ) and she shall promote thee; she (Wisdom/Christ) shall bring thee to honor, when thou dost embrace her.
Embrace Wisdom, embrace Christ Jesus!
Today, right now, God wants you to acknowledge Him and remember that we belong to Him...it is not merely a coincidence that you are here. No! Your steps have been ordered by the Lord and your lives have been predestined for in Acts 2:17 the scripture says, IN THE LAST DAYS, GOD SAYS I WILL POUR OUT MY SPIRIT ON ALL PEOPLE. YOUR SONS AND DAUGHTERS WILL PROPHESY, YOUR YOUNG MEN WILL SEE VISIONS, YOUR OLD MEN WILL DREAM DREAMS.(18) EVEN ON MY SERVANTS, BOTH MEN AND WOMEN, I WILL POUR OUT MY SPIRIT IN THOSE DAYS, AND THEY WILL PROPHESY.
I said to you earlier that it was for our benefit God made Christ to be Wisdom itself. Christ is the One who made us acceptable to God. (man has neither a Heaven or a hell to put us in and the traditions of man is not the standard we will be judged by in the last days!)
Brethren, we’ve been bought with a price that no man could ever pay. Christ gave Himself to purchase our freedom, therefore we are priceless in the realm of God and it is by the very Word of God and His Divine Wisdom that we live.....
I have prayed to God that on this day you will feel compelled to reach down into the depth of your Christian souls and minds and cast out the ancient and broken walls of division. To allow the Holy Spirit to renew within us, a vision of God’s Kingdom where the last shall be first and the first shall be last. Where the greatest ones are those who serve. And all of our gifts are blessed; not by the power that we possess, but by God’s grace by which we are called!
(I’m still talking about Wisdom for Prophesying Daughters! Amen?)
This is the day that the Lord has made, let us rejoice and be glad in it! We worship today in spirit and in truth; for God has called each of us by name!
Like Miriam, may our worship flow from joy filled hearts, for our God reigns!
Like Elizabeth, may our praise be filled with the joy of God’s Spirit leaping within our hearts!
Like Hannah, may our prayers flow from our mouths , for the Lord our God hears and He answers prayer!
Like Ruth, may our service flow from surrendered hearts, for God has done great things for us and we’re glad about it! Amen?
Like Evangelist Mary Magdalene, may our testimony flow from our hearts trembling with Holy excitement! For Christ in His wisdom has called us Daughter, and has calmed our fears!
