There are so many women of influence in the earth today, but today, we are talking to Christian women who have influence. Our Influence is different from the women who have influence without having Jesus Christ as her Lord and Savior. We are suppose to be kingdom minded. Our wisdom and our influence comes from the Spirit of God.
1 Corinthians 2:14
The natural man does not accept the things that come from the Spirit of God. For they are foolishness to him, and he cannot understand them, because they are spiritually discerned.
I am going to speak to you about what I believe, God wants his daughters to know about the power of their influence.
A woman of influence is serious about her relationship with the Lord Jesus Christ. A woman of influence walks in integrity. A woman of integrity do not play petty games. A woman of influence relies on her faith. A woman of influence is a praying woman, she knows where her help comes from. A woman of influence controls the words that comes out of her mouth.
20 With the fruit of a man’s mouth his stomach will be satisfied; He will be satisfied with the product of his lips. 21 Death and life are in the power of the tongue, And those who love it will eat its fruit.
A woman of influence cleanses her heart of all falsehood, gossip, wrong intentions, envy, strife, backbiting, jealously, lust, manipulation, pride, unforgiviness, cattiness, hatred, bitterness and all forms of evil.
A woman of influence is also bold. She has quite strength, wise, sharp, discerning, intuitive, powerful, impactful and cares about her fellow sisters. A woman of influence is feminine, but strong. She is humble and brave. A woman of influence is always building people up. She tells the truth when truth needs to be spoken. A woman of influence walks in love, even when she sees others wrong heart towards her.
A woman of influence has a servants heart. She doesn’t care if she gets the glory because she knows her rewards comes straight from the throne of God!
Luke 22 :24-27
A dispute also arose among them as to which of them was considered to be greatest. 25 Jesus said to them, “The kings of the Gentiles lord it over them; and those who exercise authority over them call themselves Benefactors. 26 But you are not to be like that. Instead, the greatest among you should be like the youngest, and the one who rules like the one who serves. 27 For who is greater, the one who is at the table or the one who serves? Is it not the one who is at the table? But I am among you as one who serves.
A woman of influence has confidence in her God, because to have confidence in anything else is unreliable. A woman of influence relies on her power tools: The Bible, prayer, the Holy Spirit and the power of her words.
A woman of influence celebrates and encourages others, she doesn’t live in fear of someone out shinning her or taking her spot because she knows that it is God that sets one man up and bring another man down. But with that being said, she has a discerning spirit. She is in tune with the Holy Spirit who shows the believer all things in the spirit realm.
When the Spirit of truth comes, he will guide you into all the truth, for he will not speak on his own authority, but whatever he hears he will speak, and he will declare to you the things that are to come.
6For not from the east, nor from the west, Nor from the desert comes exaltation; 7But God is the Judge; He puts down one and exalts another.…
If we are going to be women of influence, there are things we are going to have to put down, stop and add to our life. God is looking for women who are serious about making an impact in their sphere of influence.
Some women think you can only make an impact if you hold an influential position. But God has called us all to be influencers. There are some environments you are called to influence.
Whether you are the boss, the employee, the daughter, the mom, the wife, the business owner, the teacher, the church member, whether you are in 5 fold ministry, the pastor, the single lady or the sister, you are called to influence.
Today I want to talk about having influence as a wife, mom, a unmarried woman and a church member.
Women of God, I want to talk about a woman who used her Influence for evil.
Delilah used her beauty and sex appeal to influence the strong man Samson, preying on his runaway lust. Samson was a judge over Israel, one of those rulers who kept order before the reign of kings. He was also a warrior who killed many Philistines, which fueled their desire for revenge. They used Delilah to discover the secret of Samson’s strength: his long hair. Once Samson’s hair was cut, he was powerless. Samson returned to God but his death was tragic. The story of Samson and Delilah tells how lack of self-control can lead to a person’s downfall.
Men of God are falling from their position because of the Delilah spirit. Some men are full of lust, married and single men, but daughters of God, I am talking to you today.
Women are using their sex appeal to lure men out of their position in the body of Christ and out of their homes. Women are leaving their position in their marriage because they are covenant breakers. I am not talking about the women who are being abused in their marriage, I am talking about the women who are physically leaving their postions and mentally leaving their positions because of lust. They are fantasizing about someone else’s husband or fantasizing about being with single men.
Women are luring men by touching, making eye contact, complimenting men, flirting with someone else’s husband that they have no covenant right to, and this is going on in the church as well as in the world.
1 Corn. 7:1-6
Now concerning the things whereof ye wrote unto me: It is good for a man not to touch a woman. 2 Nevertheless, to avoid fornication, let every man have his own wife, and let every woman have her own husband. 3 Let the husband render unto the wife due benevolence: and likewise also the wife unto the husband. 4 The wife hath not power of her own body, but the husband: and likewise also the husband hath not power of his own body, but the wife. 5 Defraud ye not one the other, except it be with consent for a time, that ye may give yourselves to fasting and prayer; and come together again, that Satan tempt you not for your incontinency.
Women are being used by the devil to flaunt their bodies and using their feminine power to entice and seduce men. We are living in the days like Sodom and Gommorah. Every where you look; TV, social media, online, movies and magazines, women are exploiting themselves, showing breast, wear flesh gripping pants that shows off their shape, their behinds and wearing pants without under garment or wearing them with under garment, so men can look at what kind of panties they have on and exposing their belly buttons.
Daughters of God that should not be named amoung you. You should be influencing your environment by setting a higher standard and not fitting in with the environment. There have been a spirit of seduction and lust released in the earth. Christian women have adopted the dress of the world by trying to stay relevent and are bringing it amoungst God’s people, and wondering why the men of God are having a hard time keeping their attention in their marriage and being led astray out of their positions.
Beautiful single sisters. All unmarried women are not operating out of character, I am only talking to the ones that this blog post applies to, if this is not you, then please do not take this personal. God wants to bring you your own husband. You do not have to have attention of a married man. Their is not a shortage of men. But you have to be serious about your relationship with Christ. You have to respect the marriage covenant, especially if you desire to be married one day. Women set a standard in your dress.
A Influential women is intentional about covering her most precious assets. She have a heart after God, she do not want to cause no men to fall on account of her dress. She respects herself. She is not trying to get negative attention by having men notice her body. Their is so much more to you than your outer appearance.
Modesty: having or showing regard for the decencies of behavior, speech, dress, etc.; decent:a modest neckline on a dress.
A influential woman knows her covenant rights in her marriage. Wives be aware of women who always wants to get your husband attention! She is always prancing in front of him, always finding ways to make a connection with him by talking to him, complimenting him and touching on him, always want to give him hugs and always smiling in his face. Set boundaries in your marriage and with your husband when it comes to the opposite sex. Educate your husband on seducing women. It could be innocent interaction with the opposite sex, but if you have the slighest concern, do not ignore it. Address it in a kind, non-accusing manner with your spouse. Nip it in the bud.
Your marriage is to important to allow intruders and insignificant people, that has nothing to do with your marriage covenant to be little foxes that spoil the vine. Things will go on that you are not comfortable with, if you do not address it. You have to be the one who is setting the standard for your marriage. Others will get offended with you for not giving them excess to your covenant. But an influencial woman could care less about what others think when it comes to fighting and protecting her covenant from intruders.
Become a woman of prayer. Pray for your marriage and pray for yourself. Use the power of your words to speak your amazing marriage into existence. Use the power of your words to restructure your marriage. Write down scriptures and speak them over your marriage daily. Do not curse your seeds by talking negatively about your spouse or your marriage.
Do not allow other married women to have excess to your husband either. Just because she is married, do not make it any more better than a single woman. Some women are lacking attention in their own marriage, and instead of women investing in making their own marriage work, they would rather get conversation from sister soing and so husband who has a wonderful marriage covenant. They would take the time to compliment your husband, but not have taken the time to compliment their own husband. Confront intruders in your marriage until they are destroyed!
Just like God is jealous when we go whoring after other Gods because we have a covenant with him, is the same way a wife or a husband feels when their attention has been lured out of their home.
Influential women is not intimidated when she knows she needs to address some important things in her marriage. She prayerfully consider her approach to her husband. Wives you have to be in tune with your own husband. Men of God are falling from their positions because of the spirit of lust.
Wives, you fight for your marriage. Fight for the covenant you made with your husband. The enemy is after your lineage. If your covenant is destroyed there goes the your lineage.
An influential woman does everything in her power to safe guard her marriage. If it falls apart, it is not because she did not put her all into making it work.
Wives make sure you are talking to your husband with respect. Make sure you are serving your husband in whatever compacity you can help him in. The deepest needs of your husband is for respect, sex, encouragement, support, and he needs to feel like he still got it. Just like you want compliments, so do he, He craves it. Make him feel needed. He looks to you for a safe place to rest. Can he trust you with his heart? Or have you torn him down with your words.
Tell him how grateful you are that he is your husband. A man needs you to be his friend. Sit down with him and watch the game with him sometimes, or go outside with him when he is fixing something and just watch him or talk him through the process. Touch on him throughout the day. Kiss him passionately. Wives it is your job to send your husband out the home fully satisfied. When he comes home, make sure you have set a peaceful atmosphere where he feels safe and wants to run home to. When you talk to others, let him hear you talking well of him.
Wives go out and buy yourself some lingeria. Keep things spicy with your husband. I know you probably feel like you put on some weight, but do not let that be an issue. A man looks at confidence. Remember you are his gift and his favor from God, He needs to feel that.
Wives, we do need to keep ourselves up, so we can feel good. Go walking for 30 minutes at least 4-5 times a week. Do things you enjoy, that makes you happy and do it by yourself, and do things together as a couple.
A husband loves to see his wife smile. A influential woman count her blessing daily. She is grateful for all the blessing in her life. She is content in Christ. Remember to smile, be pleasant, watch the words that come out of your mouth, make sure you are not filling your atmosphere with negativity. It should not be the outward appearance but your gentle and quite spirit. Set yourself apart by staying out of gossiping atmosphere.
Influential woman keep your speech very positive and uplifting. When people don’t feel good about themselves, they have a tendency to talk about others is a negative way.
Where is the love in the Church? Women we are called to a greater love. If we are truly being about our father’s business, than we all know that God has called us to come up higher in our love walk. Get away from people who are always knows everybody business at church and wants to gossip about other people business. Reframe from being a busybody. A woman of infleunce do not have time for gossip because she is to focus with what is on her her own plate.
We are called to pray for our sisters and brothers in Christ. If our sister are going through something and you know about it, pray for them, and ask God how can you be a blessing to her. Genuinely form the heart. It could be you in that situation.
Woman of God, I do know God wants us to show love with greeting. But can I admonish you to hug the women, and shake hands with the men. I do know some women and men are affectionate people, it could be your love language. But it is a lot of foolery going on in the body of Christ. Believers are not guarding their spirit and getting into lust.
If you are offended with your local body then you really can’t be much help, because your heart is hurting. Please pray and ask God to cleanse your heart towards anybody you are holding offense with. Go to that person or ask God to heal your heart and forgive them.
Make sure you are praying for your Pastors and leaders of your church and cover the body of believers in prayer daily. We are our sisters and brothers keepers. The enemy would love nothing more than to see the body of Christ fall apart.
But if you have bitter jealousy and selfish ambition in your hearts, do not boast and be false to the truth. This is not the wisdom that comes down from above, but is earthly, unspiritual, demonic.
God has called us to be influenitial in our home. You have to take your role seriously. My sisters, you are called to impact your lineage and generations and generation that is coming after you. You are one of the 2 greatest influences your child has in their life. The second influence is their father, if he is involved in their life. But I do know some of us were not born again when we had children, but it is never to late to introduce your children to Jesus.
Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your strength. These commandments that I give you today are to be upon your hearts. Impress them on your children. Talk about them when you sit at home and when you walk along the road, when you lie down and when you get up.
God is relying on you to introduce your children to him. I don’t know if you ladies know it or not, but the god of this world, will have an influence over your children if you do not teach them the ways of the Lord and if you do not teach them who voice thy should be listening to.
Children most impactful way of learning about their enviroment is by watching what is consistently being displayed in front of them. So how are you really living when you are behind closed doors. Children are very intelligent human beings. Because they haven’t said anything to you, they are seeing the real deal of what is happening in their homes. How are you influencing your children? You have the power to change the course of your children destiny!
3Behold, children are a gift of the LORD, The fruit of the womb is a reward. 4 Like arrows in the hand of a warrior, So are the children of one’s youth. 5 How blessed is the man whose quiver is full of them; They will not be ashamed When they speak with their enemies in the gate.…
Lay your hands over your children and speak great things over your them. Your words are molding their life. Make sure you are correcting your children, that is part of loving them. Rebuke anyone who have anything negative to say about your marriage or your children. Pray for them always, whatever is concerning you about your children let prayer be the first thing you do, so God can show you what to do concerning your children.
