Do you know as women of God we are called to be Bold, Brave and we are Beautiful?
Say it out loud with me:
I am Bold, Brave and Beautiful!
How did you feel when you said it out loud?
We are told this is who we are to be throughout the Bible. On being bold God says it at least 26 x’s and on being brave He tells us at least 37 x’s. If God says it we need to believe it and own it as His daughter!
So many times we are told by the world the total opposite of all three.
Know Christ = Confidence
Confidence = Boldness
“…proclaiming the kingdom of God and teaching about the Lord Jesus
Christ with all boldness and without hindrance.” Acts 28:31
Through Jesus Christ we have the confidence to be bold in Him. We let the world tell us otherwise and allow the world to quench that confidence and boldness in Jesus. It is time as women of God to take that back and be bold!
We are told to be in this world not of this world, therefore why would we listen to the view of who we are from the world’s perspective instead of the voice of God?
Time to step in boldness and own who you are in Jesus Christ!
As women of God we need to be gently reminded we fight our battles through Christ not on our own. Sometimes we forget this and we begin to back away from what the Lord has called you to do.
We know when God calls us into action it may not be the norm or popular, however IF God has called you to move, MOVE! He has you covered in this journey. You see we cannot let those around us decide if we should move when God calls you to move, you have to seek Him and go. The enemy will plant folks in your path to discourage and even attack, you then grab onto Jesus and GO!
“Watch, stand fast in the faith, be brave, be strong.”
1 Corinthians 16:13
“Be strong and of good courage, do not fear nor be afraid of them; for the
LORD your God, He is the One who goes with you.
He will not leave you nor forsake you.”
“…Then Joshua said to them, “Do not be afraid, nor be dismayed;
be strong and of good courage, for thus the LORD
will do to all your enemies against whom you fight.”
My dear friend, you are beautiful in Christ. You were created in Him image! Fearfully and wonderfully made!
God does not make mistakes!
The difference is in this world they judge an outer appearance that has been altered or airbrushed to appear beautiful. Isn’t that the way of the world “to appear to be something,” yet in reality they are no different than you or I…except in their heart!
“Do not let your adornment be merely outward—arranging the hair,
wearing gold, or putting on fine apparel— rather let it be the hidden
person of the heart, with the incorruptible beauty of a gentle and
quiet spirit, which is very precious in the sight of God.”
1 Peter 3:3-4
“For we are His workmanship, created in Christ Jesus for good works,
which God prepared beforehand that we should walk in them.”
“So God created man in His own image; in the image of God He created
him; male and female He created them.”
“But the LORD said to Samuel, “Do not look at his appearance or at his
physical stature, because I have refused him.
For the LORD does not see as man sees; for man looks
at the outward appearance, but the LORD looks at the heart.”
1 Samuel 16:7
You see we are beautiful in Christ Jesus girls! Don’t let anyone tell you otherwise!
So are you ready to go out and be Bold, Brave and Beautiful?
