Day 30 The Christian Woman

              Christian, we have made it to day thirty with the women of the bible.  After twenty-nine days of prayer, alone time with the Lord, and meditating on his Word, I believe you are stronger.  I believe your heart has been awakened to understand you have a plan and purpose.  I believe you have been strengthen in your walk and I believe his breathe of life has permeated your spirit, for these were God’s words and not mine. 
            I encourage you to finish your race strong.  I encourage you to not quit or give up when faced with testing and trials head on, for the Lord disciplines those he loves.  Continue to meditate on his Word for there is life in his Bible.  I pray you remain steadfast in soaking in Christ’s Gospels, for in his words you will find knowledge and wisdom (Colossians 2:3).
            My own prayer for you, sweet sister, is not only to be encouraged, to not only strengthen your spirit and for you to be encouraged to study, but that your own testimony for how Christ changed and challenged you will embolden you to go and tell.  Tell how you anoint Christ with your prayers, tell how you wait for him first thing in the morning at the tomb, and tell how he healed your bruises and afflictions.  Go and tell how God uses anyone for his kingdom, go and tell how God changed you into a noble wife and a woman after his own heart.  Go and tell how you open your house to those in need, go and tell how Christ has equipped you with every spiritual blessing in the heavenly realms.  Go and make disciplines of women around you.  They need your voice and your testimony; the world needs Christ to heal those who hurt, those who are in bondage and those who need to know they are loved. 
            This last chapter is for you.  You are the Christian woman.  You represent the church, are an epistle of Christ and his hands and feet.  You are to embody the Gospel, an exact replicate of the invisible God with your love, forgiveness, giving, kindness, hospitality and gentleness.  You are the church, the bride of the Living God, his precious daughter, and then one he needs to spread his precious seed.  This chapter is to encourage you, sister, to come boldly before the throne; it is a new day, you are a new creature, the old as past and you have been cleaned by the Blood of the Lamb! Go and tell!
            I pray each of these women the past twenty nine days has inspired you. I pray you have been able to relate to several or maybe, you can relate to my own testimony or another sister in Christ.  You are not alone, for spirit speaks to spirit and just as the Apostle prayed to be with those in the church, my heart prays to be with each of you as you read.  I pray as the Apostle Paul to the hands that are holding this book, Grace and Peace to you from God our Father and the Lord Jesus Christ!  May the Lord bless you and keep you, the Lord make his face to shine upon you and be gracious to you; the Lord turn his face toward you and give you peace (Numbers 6:25-26).
            Pray this last prayer with me my friend, pray this last prayer if you desire to start over, then start over back in the closet anointing Christ as Mary of Bethany.  Read until his Word opens your heart, meditate on his words until you lay it ALL at the cross; seek until you believe in the plan and purpose he has for you and study until you know him and the POWER of his resurrection! Praise God, the Father of Jesus of Nazareth!

Let us pray and CONFESS the Word of the Living God:

            The bible declares you will give us the desires of our heart (Psalm 20). I desire to follow you.  I desire to be a living epistle, an ambassador in chains, a prisoner of hope and a servant of the Jesus Christ (Ephesians 6:20, Zechariah 9:12).  I desire to pick up my cross and carry it (Matthew16:24). I pray you use all the gifts and talents hand picked for me by the Holy Spirit to spread the Gospel (1 Corinthians 12:7, Romans 12:6-8). 
            My heart’s desire is to be a sweet aroma to you, anointing Christ with my prayers, hopes, fears, dreams and joy.  I pray to be first at the tomb, I pray to give all my children over to you, I pray I am unafraid and boldly fighting the spiritual battle in the Heavens.  I pray I am a servant of Christ in the workplace, at home behind closed doors and in public unashamed of Jesus.  May I be a representative of Christ wherever I walk, travel or whomever I come in contact with.
            I pray to give more, to love more, to forgive more and with holding no good things from fellow believers.  I desire to be steadfast in prayer, rising to the occasion for which I am called, studying ever more diligently, ready to comfort, love and feed your sheep.  I desire strength while in the wilderness, I desire to plant my feet, fast for those lost in my family, and determined to follow you where ever you lead me.
            My heart desires to be a doer of the word (James 1:22), opening my house for bible study, prayer and worship.  I desire to water the seed you have planted in my heart, mediating on your word day and night, prayerfully keeping my faith and hope alive in Jesus Christ.  I know I can go deeper in prayer, in study and worship.  Lead me each and everyday through your Word, through this daily life with unbelievers and loving those who do not know you for I know you came to those who need a Savior.
            May I diminish even more, receiving with joy the plan and purpose you have for me.  I know I was created, molded and shaped for such a time and season as this.  I do not want to waste my life with frivolous things in which are destroyed by rust and moths, but store my treasures in heaven where a reward is waiting.   My heart’s desire is to do something great for your kingdom each and every day.  Take me into a season of preparation, of learning and listening for you voice.  Deepen my faith, hope and love in the Savior, the Messiah, Jesus Christ; it in the name of Jesus of Nazareth I pray, Amen
