Proverbs 4 verse 23: “Keep and guard your heart with all vigilance and above all that you guard, for out of it flow the springs of life.” What a power scripture. Women, do you know what you are worth? I think sometimes we forget what we are worth, that is why we fall into various types of sin and temptations…we fall for any man who uses the words ‘I love you’, ‘You are beautiful’ ‘Lets hook up’…ladies these are all words! You need to remind yourselves constantly of who you are in Christ! If not, go back to Proverbs 31 and read about the virtuous woman! It was specifically given to us! Not only that, but bear in mind that the words of a man are not always true and genuine. So instead, rather than pushing the person away, tell God about it, and listen to what He will say to your heart…sometimes it may never be the way you expected it to me, but surely He will answer you.
We also need to be aware of the things that can distract our own personal relationships with Christ…as a woman of the most high, we must ensure that Christ should be our leader, before anybody else. If you are considering to be in a relationship or is already in one, reflect and remind yourselves of the following message: “An excellent wife who can find? She is far more precious than jewels. The heart of her husband trusts in her, and he will have no lack of gain. She does him good, and not harm, all the days of her life. She seeks wool and flax, and works with willing hands. She is like the ships of the merchant; she brings her food from afar”. To find a good wife, it is not easy, but it takes the conviction of God to tell a man yes, this is the person I have ordained you to be with…not only that, but it takes PRAYER AND MEDITATION of the Word!
It may not always be based on relationships, it can also be friendships too…if there are some friends in your life that are not causing you to excel or fulfill your destiny, it takes courage to cut them off. And by all means, do. Do not feel bad; although it took me such a long time to cut this person out of my life, I felt free again. You have the choice to enjoy your life…do not allow anyone to run it for you apart from God Himself. You shouldn’t allow anyone to have the full satisfaction of telling you who you are…remember you are a chosen generation, called forth to show His excellence! All you require for life, God has given you, why? Because you know WHO YOU ARE AND WHOSE YOU BELONG TO!
Above all things, guard your hearts, for out of it flows the springs of life…remind yourself that you are going to enjoy your life! You are going to make a committed decision that you will keep your heart from being hurt, used, abused and tampered with. Keep smiling, and know that God should be the first person in your heart. After that, everything else will follow, and eventually fall in place. The pain you go through now may be painful, but when the right time is settled, everything WILL make sense.
