Mighty woman of God, I wish you all well, blessed and highly favored of our Lord Jesus Christ. This might be one of those OUCH messages, but I pray that you will keep an open mind.
(Psalms 23:3), He restores my soul: he leads me in the paths of Righteousness for his name's sake. (Psalms 37:25), I have been young, and now am old; yet have I not seen the righteous forsaken, or his seed begging bread. (Prov. 21:21), He that follows after righteousness and mercy finds life, righteousness and honor.
Let me first dig a little deeper and bring those scriptures to life for today's day and age. The bible says, that no one is righteous, no not one. So sometimes people look at that scripture and make up in their own mind that they will never be able to feel the presence of God because they are not righteous. On the other hand you have some people interpreting that scripture to say that, if no one can ever be righteous, how will they ever get to the point where they may feel the presence of the Lord in their own life. Since the Lord knows that no one will ever be righteous according to worldliness, He is saying that one can be righteous with Him leading you. If you allow the Lord to lead you in everything then He will direct your paths into righteousness
Abraham was counted righteous by God because he was willing to do whatever it took to please God, event to the point of sacrificing his own son, that he waited years to have. (Ps: 37:25), the writer goes on to say that he has lived many years and as far as he knows, God has always taken care of the righteous ones. (Prov. 21:21), the writer goes a little further, by stating that a person that follows after, seek after God with all their being will obtain righteousness, God will give them favor in this life.
In other words, God will count a person righteous. God is looking for a people after His own heart. His is seeking the type of person that will do whatever it takes to appear righteous. God counted Abraham, Noah and Job righteous because they loved Him and trusted Him, therefore doing whatever it took to please God.
So many people say that they desire to have a closer relationship with God, but do they make themselves available to God? Only you can answer that question.
Some women say they desire a closer relationship with God. They stand in the anointing line and say that they want prayer to have a relationship with God, but they don't receive the prayer by strengthening their prayer time, spend more time in worship and praise to Him. So they constantly keep getting in that line.
Some women's priority list goes a little bit like this: boyfriend, boyfriend, boyfriend. Or boyfriend, self, kids then God. Could you imagine that? Me either. Some people will love their significant other so much that they even go to the point of checking email messages, phone messages, keying cars, stalking, busting windows, knifing tires (etc.). If they have so much time to do those things, then God should definitely be somewhere in that time. I know I'm not talking about you, but maybe you know someone that this does apply to. PRAISE GOD!
