Change to Fulfill Our Position
The Women of Integrity Ministry is in a time of transition. We are changing from a ministry focused on married women to an all-inclusive ministry. I’m very excited about the change and thankful to the women who have agreed to be part of the change that God is bringing out in Gospel Centers International.
You and I are living in a time of divine transition. Not only are things changing in the world around us, people’s lives are changing too. Yes, God is shifting His people including women—perhaps even you—from one assignment to the next, from one sphere of influence or authority to the next, from one opportunity to the next, and from one season to the next.
Everywhere, God is moving His people to the next level in our ministries or professional endeavors and in our personal lives. He is moving us forward in our destinies, advancing us in His purposes and equipping us for greater accomplishments than we have ever known. He is doing this so that His kingdom can be established and increased in every sphere of every society on earth. I believe that you are longing to fulfill God’s great purposes for your life and that you desire to see His kingdom come and His will be done on earth, just as it is in heaven. Some of us may be going through many changes in your life right now as God is preparing you to be used in new and different ways for His glory in the days ahead.
In the midst of transition, you may have many questions and moments of uncertainty. Let me en-courage you with some words of wisdom from the book of Daniel. Concerning the times and sea-sons of our lives, Daniel 2:21 teaches us that “He [God] changes times and seasons; he sets up kings and deposes them. He gives wisdom to the wise and knowledge to the discerning” (NIV). Because God does give us wisdom and knowledge about the changes in our lives, you can be sure that you have everything you need to move to your next level. You have enough to make the shift. God wants to bring mighty, empowering changes in your life this year.
BUT you will need to make room for these changes. You can‘t put new wine in old bottles as Jesus taught in Matthew 9:17. So, get rid of all the negativity in your life. That includes people & situations. Learn to put up boundaries. Seek out what will build you up.
The Lord is saying: Stop placing so much importance on other people‘s negative opinion of you. Instead, look to me for I have wonderful things to say about you. You are loved. You are precious to me. I have created a place for you to stand in this world. Fellow-ship with Me. Trust Me and I will lead you to that place.
