Hello dear readers,
Yesterday, I shared a somewhat different style of post and hope you found it useful, even inspirational.
For anyone who missed Part 1, you can access it here.
Now, if you’ve read my About page, you will be aware that my heart’s desire is to reach out to hurting individuals, especially wounded women. Women wounded by abuse, malicious gossip, rejection, or any other kind of mistreatment. Women who because of their negative life experiences (which have led to negative emotional responses), find themselves within a vicious cycle of perpetual victimhood.
Having been one such woman, I want to see other females who’ve been emotionally wounded (particularly Christian women), freed from Satan’s lies and deception. I want to see such women rise up in God’s strength and power and take back the ground they have lost.
And I want to see these women, having turned around their lives, having ditched their victim mentality, look towards inspiring others… motivating others… and supporting their wounded sisters in Christ. I want to see them helping broken or despondent women become victorious overcomers, enabling them to reign over their circumstances, enforce Christ’s victory in their lives and in the lives of their loved ones.
Yesterday, we looked at a strategy for transforming negative mind-sets, through regular confession of God’s Word.
Today, I’d like to help you with looking at a few God-empowering scriptures, in order to kick-start your new way of thinking and being.
May I encourage you to write out at least one or two of the following scriptures on postcards and carry them around with you? Memorise them, even personalise them. And every chance you get, review them.
Choose one or two of the following, which resonates with you and start to read them aloud to yourself every day, even 2-3 times per day if possible. Of course you may have your own favourite scriptures, which you can use instead.
- Ephesians 2:10
- Psalm 139:14
- Philippians 1:6
- 2 Timothy 1:7
- Isaiah 41:10
In order to show you how to personalise your chosen scriptures, here’s an example of what I did when I undertook this process, using Isaiah 41:10.
I thank you Father God for your Word which says I should not fear because you are with me. I need not be dismayed because you are my God. I thank you for your promise to strengthen me and help me. And I thank you for upholding me with your righteous right hand.
Or you can personalise this verse another way:
Carol, [substitute with your name] God’s Word says you should not fear because He is with you. He says you need not be dismayed because He is your God. In fact, Carol, God has promised to strengthen and help you and to uphold you with His righteous right hand.
Well, that’s it! So simple, yet highly effective.
Before I close, allow me to bless you with the following prayer:
For whomever this applies
I commit you and any circumstance you may be currently battling with, into our Father God’s loving hands.
I ask that He enlighten the eyes of your understanding so that you see yourself as He sees you, so that you might know that He has equipped and enabled you with every required resource, to be able to walk as a victorious over-comer.
May God’s good and perfect will be done both within and through your life. May He manifest His miraculous power within your circumstances. May He strengthen you daily, in your inner being. And may He astound and delight you by doing exceedingly abundantly above anything you could possibly ask for, or dream about.
I ask this in faith and in the mighty, matchless name of Jesus. Amen.
Women of Warfare followers and visitors, have a wonderfully blessed and victorious week!
Carol (aka Lady Cee)
