Women in/of the World's Ideas of Power not God's

Yes, we are in and of the world's ideas of power. We have been for a long time... since the fall. Sadly, we  continually seek out our peace and security in the world and in the flesh. We fail to embrace God's love and protection and worse we teach our daughters that only we can save ourselves. I recently read an article by Kristen Clark. Her comments were right on, I couldn't agree more with her view on modern women of all ages.

Clark wrote, "today a powerful woman embraces her independence from men and throws away her virginity, she explores sexual diversity and places her family second behind her career".

Here are seven habits of a weak and wimpy godly woman:

1- She allows sin to creep into her life.
2- She fails to guard her mind and mouth.
3-She lets things pile up and go unresolved which leads to new sin.
4- She makes bad choices in order to get ahead rather than listen to God's voice.
5- She is governed by her emotions "I feel/want/deserve"!
6- She hides behind a religious mask doing 'her' works.
7- She doesn't view her sinful nature as a problem.

How did all this creep in? In this fallen world, we are in a constant battle with the flesh and living according to the world of the flesh: power, money, sex and all covetous things. That is why God sent His Son Jesus Christ to be our redeemer. Ask Jesus Christ to forgive your sins, come into your heart and be born again!  Our battle is daily, repent and move onward.

Show your family and daughters that God's will is the best for you and for them. Read Scripture together and insist on modesty both in the home and in public. Have open dialog about sex and marriage which is not about finding that gorgeous guy and eternal happiness in his arms. Marriage is not about someone else making you happy but about you making someone else happy according to God's design, His purposes. This is a way of preparing yourself to be with the Lord God in His eternal Kingdom, to be His bride.

 "The Lord is not slow in keeping his promise as some understand slowness. He is patient with you not wanting anyone to perish, but everyone to come to repentance" ~ 2 Peter 3:9
