One Thing Needful for a Woman to be Established in the Purpose of God.

Women are on the last line of defense in the Church. When all the Apostles fled in the last hours of the Lord’s trial, women stood at the foot of the cross. That’s why it is very unwise to deprive women of their place in the Church. This is the time for all hands to be on deck in this Great Commission.

Until we learn how to identify and gaze with Jesus Christ, our world will only hear about Christ in evangelism, they will not see Him exemplify in us. The world has heard about Christ so much, but what they want to see now is Christ.

As women, we are created to embody what God has given in Christ. We are defined by our womb as the ones who embody life and bring to manifestation. A Woman means a man with a womb. We are the ones who bring to full visibility the purpose of God in us. So if you are a man with a womb, it is because you have the capability to contain something in you that you are able to nurture until it comes to manifestation, and that thing is the purpose of God in you, the purpose of God that has been birthed in you.

18 And the Lord God said, It is not good that the man should be alone; I will make him an help meet for him.

Genesis 2: 18 – KJV

God created man, but He built the woman by bringing her out of the side of man, calling us “helpers”. This makes a lot of difference as it defines the purpose of our being. The term“helpers” also identifies with the ministry of the Holy Spirit. Though we are co-creators with our husbands, we have been given the purpose to help.

39 And she had a sister called Mary, which also sat at Jesus’ feet, and heard his word. 40 But Martha was cumbered about much serving, and came to him, and said, Lord, dost thou not care that my sister hath left me to serve alone? bid her therefore that she help me. 41 And Jesus answered and said unto her, Martha, Martha, thou art careful and troubled about many things: 42 But one thing is needful: and Mary hath chosen that good part, which shall not be taken away from her.

Luke 10:39 -42 – KJV

In this passage, the Lord is showing us that it is important not to fall into the trap of being busy with outward things to the point of forgetting the inner and quiet life.

There is one thing that will not be taken from a woman: the ministration of the Spirit; receiving from the Lord; being ministered to by the Lord; receiving life from the Lord; and attending to the Lord. This is the good path that is the foundation for every aspect of a woman’s life. It will minister to you, strengthen you, make you wise, quiet your spirit, heal your emotions, heal your body, and cause you to walk in the purpose of God. And if your heart is not ministered to, your soul will not prosper.  

In the moments of the Lord’s visitation, we are to have a state of mind that is rested, and established, and not be distracted by the cares of life. This is not the time for us to miss the purpose of God’s visitation. The renewal involves a woman who communes, and values fellowship with God.

When God finds a woman who attends to His saints, He will entrust to her the treasures for the furtherance of His purpose in the earth. You are a vessel to manifest God’s purpose.
