THE PRINCIPLES OF FAVOUR (part two)

God is ever faithful!

THE RUTH

THE RUTH’S PRINCIPLE

Textual inference:Ruth 1-4

According to the scripture there was a famine in the land so a certain man named Elimelech moved out of the country with his wife (Naomi) and his two sons

After a while the husband died and she took wives for her son(orpah and Ruth respectively) and they dwelt in the land for ten years after which both sons died too…Some situations will leave you asking “God why”? but I discovered God intentionally leaves some huge question marks in our lives as a tool to stretch our faith….

Now the scripture says “then she arose with her daughter’s in-laws”,the first thing I learnt from this is that when you find yourself in a state of emotional breakdown the first step should be “how do I arise?,how do I get out of this?”…..But the devil would rather have us saying “who did this to me?,God why?it shouldn’t have been me” and this is because he’s aware that the moment you start thinking on how to arise/get off that situation,victory begins.

Now when Naomi was to leave, the scripture has it that she left with orpah and Ruth even though they had no child for her late sons,she could have decided to vent her grief or pains on them,at least if they had kids for her late sons it would have been a source of succour for her…..here comes another lesson; Learn how to tame your anger or griefs,stop passing it out on others…I have seen ladies who carry the hurts/pains of their previous relationships to subsequent ones,it’s very wrong….You’re a Queen and it would be difficult to walk in authority carrying previous hurts along.

Naomi took her daughter in-laws to a place of safety before she decided to part with them even though it was only Ruth that stayed back….. at least we have a biblical inference that it is still possible to have a smooth relationship with mother in-laws without wishing them dead aheadst your wedding day…

On returning home, Ruth went out to the field and there she found Boaz…..There are some favours in life that you won’t attract to yourself until you leave your comfort zone,until you have channeled your pain properly,you are too weighty to be locked up in one painful phase of your life…. There’s a stature needed to accommodate God’s intention for your life and just like Ruth you have to get up and take a huge step,do something,you shouldn’t be idle!…

Your identity is very important to your assignment and it is because of what you carry within the you’ll go through some phases in life….Every woman that would raise a generation for God will go through some stretchy phases,look at Mary the mother of Jesus,now look at Ruth…..The gospel of Christ grew this big because those women refused to get locked up in one painful phase of life,they choose to rise in all situations!

For every true daughter of Zion, emotional setbacks only brings you to a BOAZ!…… Finding Boaz signifies finding favour with God….

Note: God is committed to process and he’s definitely more interested in who you become in the process of shaping you….Ruth was favoured because she learnt to channel her hurts/griefs in the right direction….If you want to attract this kind of favour too,you need to overcome your hurts first and this can only be done through the help of the comforter,the holyspirit,call on him,he’s never far😊

IN PURSUIT OF LOVE

Ten virgins in pursuit of love set out for a lifetime journey,of course the dream of an average lady is to fall in love with a responsible man and someday walk down the isle with him.
Five of the Virgins had extra oil,the other five had no extra oil…
The bible never recorded where they got the lamp,it only states that they took extra oils with them…


In the spiritual sense,each of them(the virgins) were given the lamps which of course is synonymous to divine agendas,all they ever needed to do was to keep fuelling the lamp!!!
The implication of this is that divine agendas will still require physical nurturing…The purpose of the extra oil was to keep refuelling the lamp so it doesn’t die out….


The scripture says “God saw that it’s not good that the man would be alone”,so he created Eve to be his helpmeet….God had a purpose for Eve’s existence…. Purpose fuels a love story!….
Five of these ladies knew it was beyond the mushy feeling they felt on the day he proposed,they knew it was beyond lunch time out,the baecations and dinners,they needed something that would help them shine through in the midst of darkness….


Note; The lamp served as a form of light so they won’t lose direction,they had to keep the light from dying out because if it did,they could be subjected to danger or end up losing direction…..The lamp here is synonymous to purpose….You can never lose direction with purpose…


Only five of the virgins had their lamps filled with oils and still took extra oil….
It is not a sin that you’re head over heels that guy,it is not a sin to read your chats when he’s offline and giggle, neither is it a sin to remember one of his jokes and chuckle but it will be a great disaster to go on a lifetime journey with him without knowing why God is bringing you guys together…


The question should be “why are we in each other’s lives”….. There’s a hike in divorce rate around the world because most people get married all in the name of love….No vision,No mission😭…..as time went on their spouses did something painful to them and they just opt in for divorce……There are still couples who have spent over 25years in their marriages and no matter how much their spouses could hurt them,they did not leave because they knew God’s purposes for them…. Only purpose keeps and guards a love story!


The best part of this story for me was when the bridegroom’s arrival was announced, that was when they knew they had to beg for oil,the wise ones even advised them to go buy theirs….. Purpose won’t have you go far with everyone, learn how to cut people off politely,they didn’t abuse them,they even advised them….Cut people off politely…


In conclusion,for a long years now,I had always thought within myself,it wasn’t as if the scripture stated it that the bridegroom had lamp himself na,I felt he had no right to shut the door against the foolish ones…until recently that a friend of mine made me realize that “ladies are custodians of the lamp” and then I discovered that although the bridegroom had no lamp either,it was his duty to keep both the virgins and their lamps safely,more reason he shut the door at their arrival…
Who you marry will either help give a clearer definition to your purpose or help abort it!
Shalom!

THE PRINCIPLES OF FAVOUR (part one)

What is favour?
The dictionary defines favour as a piece of help usually to be repaid….
Scripturally favour refers to God’s benevolence towards man….
As a child many grew up knowing that favour comes automatically the moment you become a Christian or perhaps if you’re born into it…
I also grew up hearing the sweet sides of favour but no one ever told me Favour comes with a price!

I’m sure by now you have a lot of questions running through your mind like;
BM woman, Christ died and paid the price for everything,what price is attached to being favoured again?
What does favour really entails?
How can I be favoured?
I want you to know that there’s a price and there are principles too🤗…

So in our subsequent series we would be looking at some scriptural examples of people who obtained favour through principles and the price attached to it…
Today we start with MARY(The Mary’s principle)

THE MARY’S PRINCIPLE
(Luke 1:26-39)

26KJV:And in the sixth month the angel Gabriel was sent from God unto a city of Galilee, named Nazareth,

27KJV:To a virgin espoused to a man whose name was Joseph, of the house of David; and the virgin’s name was Mary.

28KJV:And the angel came in unto her, and said, Hail, thou that art highly favoured, the Lord is with thee: blessed art thou among 

From the scripture Mary was espoused to Joseph already,then Angel Gabriel came visiting(Of course it was a visit initiated by God).
The first thing he said to her was “thou art highly favored,the lord is with thee, blessed art thou amongst women” and he went further to tell her about the birth of Jesus.
“The lord is with thee”; An angel visits a woman for the first time and says that😶,it only implies the angel must have watched Mary commune with the Father(God) overtime…
So it is safe to say her communion/fellowship with the Father attracted an angelic visitation first and then brought favour…
From this we can deduce the first principle to finding favour and that is having a personal relationship with God…
If a woman can apply the principle of communion/fellowship,you’re automatically qualified to enjoy favour…
As earlier said,she was espoused to Joseph and when she was still contemplating on how to explain this mystery pregnancy to Joseph,Angel Gabriel appeared to him(Joseph) and explained the whole process to him…


Here’s the second principle; Never marry or be espoused to a man that can’t host the presence of God….
It is not enough that you can host the presence of God and your spouse can’t do the same…
It becomes so easy to act on instructions when both parties can easily hear from God and some battles are easily won when they’re both in alignment too…
Court and marry a man who hears and listen to God, there’ll be less problems 😊

What’s the price that Mary paid for being favoured?

  • She had continuous fellowship/communion with God…
    The same way you complain of busy schedules now,Mary was busy back then too but she still had time for God…
    It’s possible she gave herself to midnight prayers, fasting and meditations just because she wanted to be close to God ….
    There’s no excuse really for not communing with God..
    If you can spend hours on social media and calls just to gossip,then the time for God is there too…
    She must have been getting in late from work just like you but she had time to talk to God…
    It’s not too late to move closer to God sissy!
  • She identified the kind of grace she carried,it was different from ladies in her generation so she knew a Man who would assist in the delivery of God’s plan was all she needed…
    Remember the Angel confirmed this by saying”blessed art thou amongst women”….
    She wasn’t part of the ladies who are interested in their outward looks with nothing to offer,she was the beyond makeup kinda woman!
    Here’s the question; can God be proud of me even amidst multitudes of women in this generation?
    Can God call me blessed in a world filled with women of misplaced priorities?
    Can God find me reliable to relate with when things are wrong in my environment?
    Can God trust me enough to stand in gap for ladies in my Generation?
    Sissy,I beg of you, identify your purpose on earth and when you do, you’ll understand why it has to be a man from God…
  • Can God trust me enough to house and birth his movements for my generation?
    I oft hear people say “some guys wants to marry spiritual ladies so that they can have someone who covers them in prayers”…
    It’s such a partial disposition…
    God will never keep a lady for a man who can’t cover her back in prayers too…
    God will never give his daughter to a man who can’t hear from him and act on instructions like Joseph…
    God will always keep a Mary for a Joseph!
    Sis, you’re a graced Woman,you are not permitted to settle for just any kind of man…

In the old testament it’s a sin to get pregnant out of wedlock,so you can imagine the level of shame she’d have gone through,then she had the child,withnessed his 33years and the day he was nailed to the cross…
For a moment I felt that pain was too much for a woman the bible claims to be favoured,but then I realized favour doesn’t come cheap,it comes with a price…
So the next time you pray for the mantle of favour like Mary’s, ask yourself, can I pay the price, can I follow the principle?

Get you a man who can handle priestly assignment like Joseph!
Shalom!

THE SHEEP-SHEPHERD RELATIONSHIP pt2


Compliments of the season everyone🎉….let me just seize this opportunity to say thank you to everyone who has been keeping up with the BM woman,God bless you abundantly 💕


In our previous sheep-shepherd relationship episode we were made to realize the function of a sheep and a shepherd,we talked about the attributes of a goat too…..We discovered that our ability to follow God gullibly even when the vision seems blur doesn’t mean we’re fools,it’s just the sheep nature we have to possess as we walk with God….
So let us briefly examine what this whole relationship between the sheep and the shepherd looks like…

  1. THE LORD IS MY SHEPHERD(the shepherd knows his sheep)
    In John 10:14 the scripture says “I know my sheep and my sheep knows me”
    Psalm 23:1 says the lord is my shepherd
    The link between this two scriptures is that if you like claim Psalms 23:1 till eternity John 10:14 is established already …the question now is what makes you think you’re part of the sheep of his pasture?
    Remember those instructions he gave you,did you follow closely?
    Things would start working out for us when we start following his instructions to the latter…you can’t follow your shepherd closely and have issues,even when you do he’ll show up for you…
    If you’re still strong headed, wicked, impatient, unforgiving, greedy, stubborn,you still have the goat nature in you….Until your self will is killed or surrendered the shepherd cannot afford to have a goat amidst his flock…
    Verse 1 goes further to say “I shall not want”
    He said “I shall not want” both as a declaration and as a decision.
    A. As a declaration
    I shall not want means all my needs are supplied by the lord my shepherd….A shepherd will definitely provide for the needs of his sheep(psalm 68:19)
    B.As a decision
    I shall not want means I decide not to desire more than what the lord my shepherd gives(read this again)…….until you stop desiring more than what God can give you,you’re still a goat…one attribute of a goat is breaking into other people’s compound and desiring more than what his owner has to offer….Do not desire more than he gives you,stop being a goat…
  2. THE CARING NATURE OF THE SHEPHERD
    Vs2 “he maketh me to lie down in green pasture,he leads me beside the still waters..
    a. He maketh me to lie down;
    Psalm 3:5 says he laid me down and slept,I awaked for the lord sustained me…Back to Genesis 2:2 the scripture says on the seventh day God finished his work he rested….This shows that even the shepherd knows the importance of rest……
    The implication of psalm 23.2 is that a sheep doesn’t always know what’s best for itself so it needs help from the shepherd…Do you know sometimes you have to lay down so that God can rise for your help…Quit trying to rise to every problems,many times all we need to win a battle is by laying down…
    The shepherd will not just allow me to lay down,he will lay me down in GREEN PASTURES;
    The shepherd knows the best place to make his sheep rest and he faithfully guides them to green pastures…..All you need to get to green pastures is just by laying down and trusting the shepherd…. If you stop trusting the shepherd you’ll continue to feed on wilted pastures….
    You only get to lay down because the shepherd has dealt with fear, friction, famine and has fought some battles for you…..So him leading you beside the still waters implies he will bring you to a place with a sense of comfort,care and rest….
  3. WHERE AND WHY THE SHEPHERD LEADS
    Vs3: a)he restores my soul. b)he leads me in the paths of righteousness. C)for his name’s sake
    A). he restores my soul
    To restore is to rescue,to bring back,to restore a lost one(Remember how he left the 99 in search of one)…..
    It is possible for a a once timid, gullible sheep to go astray…
    It is possible for him to stray away from the flock, infact most times God allows it so the sheep would understand the value of his shepherd…
    Attimes he intentionally allows you to stray away, fight your battles yourself,feed on wilted pastures so we would realize how weak we are……you’re only strengthened due to the presence of the shepherd…
    B) he leads me
    One attribute of the shepherd is to lead….As a sheep you don’t need to know where the green pastures or the still waters are,all you need to know is where the shepherd is and then he leads…
    C) For his name’s sake
    The shepherd guides the sheep with an overarching view to the credit and glory of the sheep…. just like our parents would train us so we would not bring shame to the family’s name(the family’s name has to be protected na)…….
    For his name’s sake; To display the glory of his grace and not on account of any merit of me…. God’s motive towards the children of men are derived from the perfections of his name, everything he does is to protect his name…..

We need to pause here at the moment,we would have a concluding part to this series before January 10th…

THE SHEEP-SHEPHERD RELATIONSHIP PT 1(A summary of Psalms 23)


The dictionary describes a shepherd as someone who tends a sheep…
A shepherd is otherwise described as someone who guides and guard a flock of sheep…


A sheep is a timid and shy animal and this makes it very easy to guide them…
The shepherd has so many attributes which includes; providing comfort,guiding, guarding, looking after, basically all he does is to never lead the sheep astray….In Nigeria today,we see the extent to which the Fulani herdsmen go for their cattle,when he sees a blockage he wouldn’t mind destroying it even if it means killing his fellow human 😊(God is not wicked like the Fulani herdsmen but he has a way of taking off every form of hindrance, remember vashti was dethroned for Esther to be enthroned)…


Have you ever seen a group/flock of goats have a shepherd?…The answer is No of course

Why?

A goat can’t be easily watched over unless you want to die early 🤣,a goat won’t surrender easily,a goat is stubborn…..The ability to listen to every details makes work easier for a shepherd and of course he can never get that from a goat…
Unlike the goat a sheep is timid,he surrenders easily,he follows the shepherd gullibly!


At times being gullible doesn’t attribute us to being daft,it simply means we have discovered that Christ is our wisdom (1corinthians 4:10 AMP:We are [looked upon as] fools on account of Christ and for His sake, but you are [supposedly] so amazingly wise and prudent in Christ! We are weak, but you are [so very] strong! You are highly esteemed, but we are in disrepute and contempt!)…A sheep follows gullibly…


Until you have mastered the act of following God gullibly,I’m sorry to inform you that you’re still a goat



So briefly let’s examine the SHEPHERD-SHEEP RELATIONSHIP;


Psalms 23:1 says “The lord is my shepherd” while John 10:14 states that “I know my sheep and my sheep knows me”…..The implication of this is that even though you claim psalm23:1 at the slightest headache,John 10:14 is established already 😂…..I’m trying to figure out the expression on God’s face when you’ve not done his will in recent times but claim he is your shepherd,God be like 😏…..
So what makes you think you’re part of his pasture?


Remember those instructions he gave you,did you follow closely?….. Around June this year God told me specifically to dedicate that month to Thanksgiving even though I had pressing needs, after offering Thanksgiving prayers for like 4days I guess,I started requesting for something else(poor me😂)….when it was time to study the scripture and God just led me to Psalms 23 I was so happy digesting those verses until he called me a GOAT 🤣…
A whole fine girl like me,he called me a goat🤣🤣🤣….He said to me “if I am your shepherd like you claim,you would have followed my instructions to the latter”…


I need you to ruminate on times you have had to boycott his will because you felt it was not too satisfactory,think on times you have had to source for an alternative even when you had an existing divine instruction,think on times you have pretended like you didn’t hear him clearly,I want to gladly Inform you that you’re still a goat…
It’s okay to have being a goat once,he left the 99 in search of just one,you’re that one he’s calling out for today….
Go back to him, Approach the throne of Grace,he still loves and cares for you….


It’s time to return to the sheep nature!
SHALOM!

TOUCH THE HEM

The story of the woman with the issue of blood(mark 5:25-34)…


This is a very popular story of the Bible and one that depicts so much faith in God…

This Woman bled for 4,380 days(12 years)of which an average lady whose menstrual cycle is between 3-5 days is expected to menstruate for 720 days in a period of twelve years….I can’t but imagine her level of discomfort…Scripturally blood signifies LIFE ,in literal terms her life was flowing away from her for 12 years 😩😢…
A lot of physicians had treated her but the scripture said they took all her money and left her far worse…..That is what you get when seek after peace from the wrong source…They won’t leave you any better, you could become an object of group discussion if possible….you’ve been involved in acts you don’t feel proud of, don’t just seek for help from anyone,Go to God,they could worsen your situation or create a Sermon out of it….Hebrews 4:15 says we don’t have a priest who is out of touch with our reality,he’s been through weakness and testing,he has experienced it all…Touching the Hem is the ability to fight back or recover from setbacks!!!…There are many hems available out here in the world so it is expedient that you know and touch the right Hem so you won’t get more complicated like the Woman with the issue of blood…

Verse 27;She heard about Jesus,she slipped in from behind and touched his robe(hem)How she was able to pull through in between the large crowd still baffles me,How was she able to do this?She had been bleeding for twelve years so obviously a lot of people would have known her but still managed to Join the crowd,she must have heard a lot of people avoiding her and gossiping about her but she pulled through….On your way to touching the Hem,stay focused, deafen your ears to tantrums, ignore the crowd and gossips,crawl if you have to,jump,walk,jog,run if you have to,the goal is to touch the Hem with our gaze fixed on him(we press towards the higher price)…In the midst of all,she had set her priorities right,she saw her healing already….The day you see your future you’ll stop finding fault in everything that happens to you…


Verse28;she was thinking to herself,”if I can put a finger on his robe(hem),I can get well”…(What a great level of faith)Faith is calling into existence things ahead of time(Priscilla Shirer)…Hebrews 11:1 says faith is the evidence of things not seen…let me tell you the implication of this verse;I may not be married now but I trust God to help raise a godly home…I may be in school at the moment but I’ll get a job soon…I may be single now but I refuse to Join the “men are scum” association because I know God will bring in my way a good man..Can you start professing the mind of God over your life!!!!


With a bent back and a hand holding her stomach she didn’t lose faith,with so much pain in her waist region she didn’t lose faith,her pad was soaked in blood and it was already dripping but she didn’t lose faith,With so much pain she forged ahead because she saw her Healing…On your way to touching the Hem,your faith is a necessity!!!

In verse 29 her blood ceased the moment she touched the Hem now Jesus asked in the next verse “who touched my hem”?She had touched the Hem not the body yet Jesus felt it….Many people would have touched the Hem of Jesus even the back of his cloth but he felt nothing until this woman did…it is one thing to touch,it’s another thing to touch with faith…Jesus asked who touched me because he knew it wasn’t just the touch of a hand but the tug of a heart that has been constantly fed with faith…


Three things happened in verse 33 after she touched the Hem; 1.she hid behind the crowd 2.jesus called out for her 3.He announced her publicly

SHE HID BEHIND THE CROWD:

Her blood had ceased,she had stopped dripping,she then stepped back without uttering a statement….it is very sensitive that you know when to keep quiet when God has not asked you to…She hiding behind the crowd can be likened to staying in your secret place until God calls out for you…Until God calls out for you,hide!Until God calls out for you,stay in your secret place!If God has not called you to Lagos,stay in Abeokuta…


JESUS CALLED OUT FOR HER:

He said who touched me?He knew someone had been travailing in their secret place,she is ripe to step out,it’s time for her to manifest…The world is waiting for her,she has a lot of territories to conquer, enough of her hiding behind the crowd…it is time,where is she?Stay in your secret place,keep pushing,press harder,he will call out for you soon…


3.HE ANNOUNCED HER PUBLICLY:

The Jesus kinda announcement is an open one!!!…The Woman may have remained healed without being identified publicly but Jesus felt it was important that her act of faith be recognized publicly…He brought her out to relieve her of the public shame she had face for twelve years…Some manifestations can’t be hidden…


In verse 34 Jesus said” daughter you took a risk of faith and now you’re healed and whole,live well,live blessed!
If you’re not ready to take a risk of faith, you cannot touch the Hem!…
For the times we bled,we will push! For the period we were down,we will push!…For the period we failed,we will push!…

We can’t journey this far just to lose sight of the Hem…
The Hem is the goal,keep moving soldiers#The Beyond makeup WomanShalom!

QUEENDOM👸

A Queen is not just a title…It is a state of being, a woman only attains this milestone after years of self work emotional healing,mental refreshment and spiritual maturation (Excerpts from The Relentless woman)…At this point she doesn’t have to prove to anyone that a QUEENDOM has been established…

QUEENDOM is the establishment of the kingdom of God in a woman…Esther became a Queen where she had been taken captive and one out of many lessons to learn from this is that you don’t become a Queen without passing through the “Captivity” period…Some challenges are meant to shape out the Queen in you..For every situation you find yourself,stop finding fault or looking for someone to put the blame on, just make use of it to your advantage….Everyone has to go through the Captive period…
Let’s go through the STAGES OF ESTHER’S QUEENDOM (Esther 2_4);


1. SHE LIVED IN EXILE (in captivity) According to the scripture, Esther and some other Jews were scattered through Persia after been taken captive to Babylon.When I went on net to check that history,I discovered that they have been granted freedom to go back home(Jerusalem) but they stayed back because they had nothing at Jerusalem to fall back on,so they remained in exile…Her being in exile signifies that there is high probability that she may not have access to good food,good clothes,Nice shelter and some other basic amenities 😢…Listen carefully, you won’t be the first person to go through that problem,it’s a cross you have to bear,others will bear theirs too..some people have even gone through worse phase than yours…You don’t have an excuse, learn from Esther….Most times we have to go through the Exile to get to the palace….What God does in the exile period is to shape out the Queen in you

2. SHE WAS AN ORPHAN(Esther2:9) made us understand that she had lost both parent and was living with her uncle, Mordecai….Her uncle raised her up and one thing he did well was nurturing the Queen in her…She didn’t take advantage of her being an orphan to disappoint God nor her Mordecai…We’ve seen ladies in this generation that use this as an excuse to destroy their lives,they keep holding on to the fact that they have no one to help them….Do bear in mind that God is not interested in your background before he crowns you a Queen…
It’s okay to be an orphan,it’s okay that you have no one to help you but that won’t stop God from building a QUEENDOM through you… 

3. A VASHTI WAS DETHRONED. For every Rise of Esther, a vashti has to be dethroned”Vashti signifies hindrances, blockages…Isaiah 43:19 says God is making a road through the dessert and rivers in the bad lands(msg version)…If you look through the scripture you’ll be amazed at how God paves way for his children,that’s real love😚💖…In the process of God birthday a Queendom for Esther,vashti was dethroned…This signifies how God goes to any length to make sure that we don’t suffer twice,we can’t go through the Exile twice,hence the need for a vashti to be dethroned…So briefly let’s go through some LESSONS FROM ESTHER’S QUEENDOM;

1. God has a plan for you

Now Esther had gotten to the palace and due to envy for Mordecai,Haman made a decree that the Jews be killed…Mordecai had to send a message to Esther (Esther 4:14), He said “who knows but that you have come to the royal house at a time like this?”It is imperative that you know that wherever God has placed you, you’re there to assist in the delivery of God’s divine plan ..He didn’t bring you from the exile to the palace just to sit down,get your spa done and have good meals….Here comes the role of intercession Queens.

2. We are given divine moments to alter circumstances As believers there are no such things coincidence,fate,luck or fortune 🙄…God’s timing is providential…Esther’s divine moment came by accepting her responsibility to go in to the king…”If I perish I perish”!!! God uses people who are ready…Just make sure you’re useful where God has placed you…

3. Fasting and prayer brings hope for deliverance and clarity

God was not mentioned in the book of Esther,not even once but Esther knew A DIVINE RESPONSE WAS NEEDED FOR AN EARTHLY SITUATION…Esther needed direction so she declared fasting.. when we need God’s grace, fasting and prayer opens the portals for spiritual growth,removes distraction and places us on a path of humility….

4. God uses everything and everybody for his divine purpose

I want us to know that God would never leave any part of our lives untouched…He is in control of every aspect according to hebrews 2:8,the best thing is just to surrender to his will…

Hey Queen,i want you to know this day that every pain, every disappointment is meant to shape you…All you have to do in your exile period is stay calm,hold on to your faith and follow God closely….It’s almost time to get into the palace,Don’t lose faith yet …
SHALOM

PROVIDENCE

Providence is the character that depicts the provision of God for mankind… It is very important for a Beyond makeup woman to understand this concept,if you’re well grounded in the knowledge of Providence then you know everything about God… I want to share with you a short story👇… Priscilla Shirer,a mother of three (the war wife in war room,guess you’d have seen the movie 😊),shared on her YouTube the conversation she had with her 9year old son about how she asked him what he wanted to become when he grows up….The boy told her mum she wanted to be like her when he grows up and she was so happy….. She thought he wanted to become an actor or a preacher like her 😊…. Then the boy said “mum I want to do nothing just like you”🤣🤣🤣… She said who prepares your meal?,who irons your shirts,who dresses you up for school?,who ensures you are well kept?

And then I realized we are just like the young boy…we do not take note of the minute things God does for us, going out and coming back home safely,gift of shelter, provision of food, clothing and so much more…

We feel that when God is silent,he is doing little or nothing for us😢… May God forgive us😢. PROVIDENCE is Understanding that even in the midst of trials,God is working! PROVIDENCE is Understanding that even when it’s not feasible,God is still working! PROVIDENCE is Understanding the sovereignty of God! PROVIDENCE is knowing that God is orchestrating the details of our lives! PROVIDENCE is Jeremiah 29:11; your life is going just as God planned it! PROVIDENCE is God going before you to set up answers to problems you’ve not even encountered just like the case of King saul!

THINGS TO UNDERSTAND ABOUT PROVIDENCE

1. All that you will ever need comes from God. Psalms 104:21 says young lion look up to God and clamour for their supper. Understanding providence helps you realize that everything you want to become,your career,that desired marriage,that financial breakthrough comes from God….. Quit trying to work things out yourself,stop struggling with him, everything comes from him!

2. All that you will ever need has been provided for. Psalms 65:9-10 shows the level of provision he has made for humans…. Have you ever wondered why he created plants,animals and some basic amenities before he created Man🤔. He knew we would definitely get hungry…. He made provision to clothe and feed you the moment he breathed the breath of life into you…

3. Understanding Providence pushes you to God. According to job 5:7-10,Providence reminds you that in all that happens to you God is fully aware of it so why would you run away from him,why would you seek for solutions elsewhere when you can turn to the one who created you?…it is normal for the storm to keep raging but it is needful to Run to God!

Proverbs 22:3 made us realize that we serve a God who has foresight,A God who has looked through the future and is preparing you for it right now, you were cloned specially for his purpose… Psalms 77:13;providence is God’s way! Leviticus 18:4;Providence is God’s ordinance! Hebrews 1:3;Providence is God’s upholding! 1peter5:7;Providence is God’s care!

The devil tells you you’re going to sink in that raging storm,providence reminds you that Jesus is in your boat! The devil tries to make you feel forgotten or feel lonely in that situation,Providence reminds you that just like the three Hebrews you have a companion! The devil scares you with death, Providence reminds you that the psalmist says you’ll enter your grave at your full age,it’s not now! The devil scares you when it comes to choosing a life partner,Providence reminds you that just like Queen Esther,you will find favour with the right person! The devil is trying to hold you down with your past,Providence reminds you that just like Ruth God won’t ask you to leave your past if he has not prepared a better future for you!!!

UNDERSTANDING THE PROCESS OF GROWTH

This is a very important tool even as we go on the Beyond makeup journey(purpose journey)….

Life is in stages,there is a time and season for everything under the sun,a time to laugh,a time to cry,a time to be born,a time to die and so on…. Like I said earlier, life is In stages, you don’t get to remain a baby forever 😊… just like the journey of an insect from Egg to Larvae to pupa and finally to an Adult…. There’s a new and different level of responsibility attached to each phase🤗…How do we handle these phases as ladies, please follow closely 👯

THE PROCESS OF (THE BEYOND MAKEUP) GROWTH

1. LEAVE. To leave is to let go!

Hello sis;. Leave that toxic friendship!!! Leave that terrible past!!!! Leave that environment if all you do there is sin against God!!! Leaving behind is the first stage/process of growth….I know it will be hard,it will tear you up,it will give you sleepless nights, you will doubt God’s promises for your life but you just have to leave the past you….The past you that doesn’t forgive,the past you that have suffered in the hands of men,the past you that have been sexually abused,the past you that suffered neglect, you just have to put it all behind you….You don’t grow without leaving a phase.. if you really wanna grow you need to evolve past your pain,forgive them and move on. I hope you still remember that extra baggages would slow your purpose journey down….

Genesis 12:2;God told Abraham ‘leave your country,leave your father’s home for a land I will show you…it went further in verses 3_4 to assure him of the blessings that would follow after LEAVING….

One reason why God told him to leave was to let go of his past,God knew he wouldn’t grow there,God knew his purposes won’t be fufilled until he LEAVES

He said ‘To a land I will show you”, I want you to know that God won’t ask you to leave without making a divine provision for you girl👯… He won’t ask you to leave your past if he has not prepared a better future for you!!! He won’t ask you to leave that environment if where he’s taking you to is not filled with milk and honey!!! He won’t ask you to leave that job if he has not made provision on how to feed you!!!!

Ruth taught me how to step out in faith… Naomi made me realize that if God shows me a land and tells me to move there even with no dime in my account,he must have made a divine provision for me…

The other part to this now has to do with guys,if you are in a courtship and he is already hinting you of how he plans to remain in his Father’s house even after marriage, please run from such guy😂……The bible says “leave and cleave” not “stay and cleave” 😎…you mean God that told Abraham to leave didn’t know what he was saying abi🙄…..That guy has no vision please Leave him oooo🤣🤣🤣…..

Some greatness won’t be birthed unless you leave!!!

2. HEAL. To heal is revive,to resuscitate,to recover. Job 14:7_9 verse 7 says for a tree there is always HOPE; this means that for every situation the beyond makeup woman finds herself she should be remindedt that there’s Hope….Hope gives you a reason to keep living,it gives you a reason to heal…

Hope tells you that you may be pressed,heavily pressed but can’t be crushed… The scripture now goes further to say THERE IS STILL HOPE,CHOP IT DOWN AND IT STILL HAS A CHANCE…..That shows that even in your broken state as long as you have hope, you’ll thrive, you’ll heal…the moment you realize that Jesus is your hope, he’ll help you figure out how to heal… 3.

3. LIVE. Now that you have left your past and you have healed…it’s time to Live,time to keep growing….Do not give room for self condemnation again….The scripture made it known to us in Romans 8:1_2 that a new power and a new life is in us so there’s no room for condemnation again….

The Ruth journey

STEPPING OUT IN FAITH 👯

What happened to Ruth at the earlier days of her youth is not something the Beyond makeup woman would ever wish for…She had lost her husband and with all the years they had been married there was so single child to show for it,I wouldn’t want to imagine how sad she must have been 😢….  In all that happened she still clinged to her mother in law (Naomi),even though Naomi had asked he to go back to her people,she refused!…This simply signifies the level of relationship she had with her mother_in_law,okay so now as a beyond makeup lady, where did you ever get this idea that your mother-in-law must die before you wed their sons 🤣🤣🤣….God forgive me too,I was once like that,I thought it’s only her absence that could guarantee peace when I eventually get married…I already asked God for forgiveness ooo😁…   The only thing Ruth had left as she journeyed with Naomi was her faith!!!She stepped out in faith and just journeyed into the unknown,what a great level of Faith!!!     Just like Ruth who told you the purpose journey would be all smooth and Rosy,who told you there won’t be times you’d feel extremely drained,who told you you’d sail your boat freely in the sea of destiny without experiencing one storm or the other??? I want you to know that just like the Ruth journey,your journey won’t be that smooth..there are times when your present pain might be shaping you for that glorious future ahead of you. Let yourself through that process,that death of loved one,that academic failure,it’s all stages of Rebirth… Dear Beyond makeup woman, you will evolve past that pain!!!…Reading through the book of Ruth chapter 2_4 we eventually saw what became of her…       

 THINGS TO KNOW ABOUT THE RUTH JOURNEY

1. Ruth did not look back.    Do you know what faith is?Faith is not looking back…Faith is God calling you out of your father’s house like Abraham to a land you don’t know and you step out as instructed…Faith is not being bothered on the next step because you know he wouldn’t have called you out if he had not made any provision for you…..
Faith is trusting completely,not looking back and not doubting the one who has called you…  The beyond makeup woman is one who follows God closely not wavering in faith

2. Evolve past your PAST      This is very important as you step out in faith,never allow your past to hold you down …Do not sink in your past…Ruth had the choice of going back to her people,covering herself with ashes and sackcloth like widows in the old testament but she didn’t…. covering herself with ashes in this context means allowing herself to be clothed in her PAST….That something bad has happened to you in the past doesn’t mean good tidings ain’t coming your way again…God has a way of weaving beautiful pattern from the disparate threads of our livesGlory!!!


3. Respect every motherly/sisterly figure along the journeyI want you to note the word godly..There are some people God will intentionally place in our lives just as Naomi was placed in Ruth’s life, please never let go of them…It could be someone older than you,it could be a friend,it could even be someone you’re older than, please hold them dearly…It is important!!!


4. Do not lose faithThis has been my favorite anchor for a couple of months now….Even if after stepping out and things don’t seem to take shape, don’t lose faith!Been seeking the face of God and you’ve not seen the result,don’t lose faith!When it feels like your whole life is crooked, remember there is a God who specializes in making crooked lives straight!Ruth didn’t look back, neither should you!
Ruth kept the faith,so should you!
Lastly I want you to know that circumstances open doors for the next thing on God’s agenda💜💜💜#The Ruth journey #The beyond makeup woman #The beyond makeup journey
