This past Wednesday I attended the women’s ministry meeting at my church, Word of Faith Southfield http://woficc.com. The women received an awesome on time word from our First Lady, Minister Tiffany Butler. The title of the message was Live What You Are Worth. Min. Tiffany helped us to see that the Proverbs 31 woman in the bible, can be likened to a diamond. She gave us several examples, definitions and scriptures that I will share with you below. The reason I wanted to blog about this message is because it’s one that EVERY woman should hear. The world tells us that we are only valuable and desirable if we are sexy, skinny, rich and successful by their standards. God has a standard and His way is always right. God’s way won’t have you alone, depressed, hurt and confused! When you don’t know your worth, you live a life that is not pleasing to God and that is hurtful and dangerous to yourself. Below are my notes of the key points from the message. I encourage you to order the message to hear it in it’s entirety. You can order the CD, DVD or MP3 at http://woficc.com
Live What You Are Worth
Proverbs 31 teaches us that a virtuous woman is most desired and searched after by a REAL man of God.
The Proverbs 31 woman can be compared to a diamond. Diamonds are precious, of high cost, valuable, cherished, their pure and durable. Diamonds are capable of withstanding wear and tare.
Just as we take care of the diamonds we own, God takes care of us. We are pure and spotless in God’s eyes.
God designed each of us specifically for a special purpose, just like a jewelry maker designs a diamond.
Ladies it’s time to STOP shaking up, STOP tripping, and know that you HAVE a man who loves you!! JESUS!
Ladies take a second and acknowledge God’s presence and He will whisper sweet nothings to you. He will tell you how much He loves you, how special you are in His eyes, just like His word tells us in the bible.
Stop depending on a man and depend on God! We need to start bragging on Jesus and ALL that He’s done for us!
With Jesus, you don’t have to drop it likes it’s hot, all He wants is for you to spend some fellowship time with Him. (in prayer, praise, worship and getting into His word daily) He wants to know you deeply, not just on the surface when you come to church.
Single ladies, you already have a man who knows how to treat you! God is loving you and taking care of you and when you develop a true relationship with Him and then your man of God comes along, you’ll already know how he should treat you.
Married ladies, make sure you brag on the man who created your man!
We ALL need to know our worth and live our worth everyday!
5 Keys To Living What You Are Worth
1. You must have a pure heart and live holy. Matt 5:8. Act and dress like a woman of God at all times.
1 Timothy 2:8-10 Luke 1:58. Live holy to be blessed. Single ladies stop wearing sexy, too tight clothes to church in hopes of finding a man! 3 rules, nothing too tight, too short or too sexy, just don’t wear it!!
2. Be obedient to God, hear and obey His word.
3. Be a woman of compassion.
4. Be patient Hebrews 6:12. Diamonds don’t chance us around the jewelry store saying PICK ME PICK ME, so ladies we need to learn to wait patiently to be picked by our future husband. Also ladies, stay out of these married men’s faces. God won’t tell you that someone else’s husband is yours!
5. Be committed to living a godly lifestyle at all cost. 2 Thess 2:15
