The Squirm Factor
Woman of Faith


That’s great!
There are so many confused women today. so we’re glad
you’ve made the right choice.
God is the one who created you as a woman.
You are answerable to Him for what you do with your life.
By choosing to be a REAL WOMAN you are
making the choice that pleases Him.
He is keen to bless you on your journey into all He has created you for and created you to be.

The first step is to open your heart to Him. Many voices today are trying to push women into the wrong path. You need to ask God to protect you and to direct you to the place where He wants you to be. God is very keen to bless you as you fit in with His plan for your life.

Let’s start by telling God you are willing to fulfil His destiny for your life. Read this prayer out loud, so you can hear yourself talking to God.

“Lord God,
I thank You that You have made me a woman. I am Your servant, created by You to please You and fulfil Your plan for my life. Forgive me for the times when I have tried to live for other purposes. I choose today to walk into my Womanhood and to explore all that You have for me.
I ask for Your Wisdom and Grace in my life, so I can know what you want of me and so I can do it right, for You. I humble myself before You and give my whole being to You. Do with me what pleases You. Protect me. Guide me. And bring me to completion and fulfilment in You. 
I ask these things in the lovely and precious name of Jesus Christ my Lord.

We pray that God’s grace come on you right now and that you sense His great compassion for you. You have chosen wisely.

Woman of Faith”

I was blessed this week by an email from one of my team sharing about her challenges as a wife. She prompted me to realise that women have a possible advantage when it comes to faith. To help you appreciate what I am perceiving let me share with you an observation out of my family teaching.

Children are required to obey their parents. The Bible reveals that this is an act of faith. Children are instructed in Colossians 3:20 to obey their parents. In the same sentence Paul points out that this is “well pleasing” to the Lord. “Children, obey your parents in all things: for this is well pleasing to the Lord.” That doesn’t directly say anything about ‘faith’, except when you correlate that with Hebrews 11:6, which says that “without faith it is impossible to please God”. If children’s obedience is ‘well pleasing’ and only faith can ‘please’ God, then children’s obedience is an act of faith.

Faith kicks in when a child has to suppress their own idea of what is good for them, to comply with the requirements of their parents. Many a child has been afraid of missing out, being looked down on by others, or otherwise suffering because their parents make decisions which they would like to change. For a child to happily honour and obey his or her parents in the face of those challenges the child needs to be trusting that God has everything under control.

Similarly, everyone who is under authority must exercise that same kind of faith. This includes wives. So wives are often more in a position of conscious faith than their husbands might be. This is compounded for the men because men are more likely to be in the workforce seeing a direct correlation between their effort and their income. This can block their awareness of God’s provision, and prompt them to think of themselves as the ‘provider’. A wife who is reliant on her husband’s endeavours and the favours he bestows on her must turn to God and look to God’s grace to see her needs and wishes met. Herein is the seed-bed of the ‘woman of faith’.

A dependent wife should find it easier to be a woman of faith. It should be easy for her to take a faith posture. Note, however, that a grasping woman, who wrests control from her husband or who manipulates him to get her way, has missed the special faith posture which other women have. A grasping woman fails to be moving in faith and so fails to please God.

There are many examples of godly women who have been strong in faith, despite their vulnerability, while their husbands have found it hard to trust God. Even when a husband does well financially he can simply lift his expectations, and hoard what he has, rather than trusting God to bless him. This is not to say that all dependent wives are women of faith or that all working men are devoid of faith. But I do recognise that a woman of faith is a precious thing and that the limitation which some women struggle with is seen by others as an advantage - helping them stay reliant on God.
