Good morning, Mighty Woman of God! I pray that you are blessed and highly favored of our Lord Jesus Christ as you follow after Him.
(Ecclesiastes 4:9-12), Two are better than one, because they have a good return for their work: If one falls down, her friend can help her up. But pity the woman who falls and has no one to help her up! Also, if two lie down together, they will keep warm. But how can one keep warm alone? Though one many be overpowered, two can defend themselves, A cord of three strands is not quickly broken.
In not directed today's message towards anyone in particular, I am expressing myself as fed up. Fed up at the way that we (those of us whom call ourselves Christian women), tearing each other down every chance we get. The reason why I am speaking to those that are Christian women is because the meaning of a Christian is not a religion, it is a lifestyle. A lifestyle to at least put forth the effort to live Christ-like.
The reason why so many women enjoy the company of a male as a best friend is because men don't compete as much as women do. We have all sorts of reasons why we decide not to befriends another woman. Her hair is too short, too long, wrong color. She weighs too much or not enough. She looks at you funny or looks at your man too long. Her shoes are the wrong color, too high or you just don't like them. She has too much money or not enough money. She dresses too expensive looking or too cheap looking. My point is that somewhere down the line, women have developed the need to compete with each other, instead of completing one another.
Woman of God, this message is for those of you that truly desire a release and a spiritual shift in your relationship with God and in your prayer life. If you don't have at least one godly friend then you need to pray that the Lord will send you one. You need a friend that is spiritually connected to God. Your friend should be able to discern whether or not you are dealing with some issues in your life without even telling her. A Godly woman understands that you don't need a "girl let me tell you what I would do" advice. Meaning, she will never talk down on you or about you. She won't post your business on Facebook or Twitter. More importantly, she knows how to say "I'm sorry". In turn, if this is the type of friendship that you desire, you must also be of the same spirit. We need more prayer lines than prey lines. True sister's in Christ, should be able to tell the other when she is wrong about a situation and still be friends. True sister's in Christ, pray not prey for each other. True sister's in Christ don't get jealous when one gets a title in church. True sister's in Christ don't offend one another but defend one another. If you and your sister in Christ are going through a spiritual battle, instead of talking about your situations together, start praying together and watch God shift in the spiritual realm, turning it around for your good. All things work together for the good, to them that love the Lord and are called according to His purpose. One can chase a thousand, two can chase ten thousand.
I have spoken with so many women through this ministry that have been scorned badly by other women in the church. Even to the point that I have to earn their trust. Which I pray that I have done, through this ministry. I too, have been scorned badly in the Body of Christ, by not only one but two First Lady's of the church. It was such an ugly situation that even my children have had trust issues when it comes to people in the church. The best thing that came out of both situations was that I served Christ by serving them. If I would have looked for my reward from them, I would have been damaged both spiritually and emotionally. PRAISE GOD!
