Recently I was privileged to graduate another wife from the Woman of Character program. Four months had passed since she walked into the Women’s Ministry building, fully aware that she was in need of help and change.
All credit for this work of grace goes to Abba Father who faithfully worked in her a greater desire to be in His Word and to be a godly wife, a woman of character for the pleasure and glory of her Heavenly Husband!
A few of the things she shared, which were very important reminders that she needed, are also vital for the rest of us. I decided to share them with you in this Victory Call. I do because the reason we take time to write the VC in the first place is to encourage you to live in visible victory before the face of God.
Here are the truths she shared:
“It is impossible for anyone to save himself. We are all saved by grace, through our faith in Jesus Christ.
God desires that we rely on Him more than we rely on any other person or thing in our life.
God keeps His promises, every single one.
I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me – Philippians 4:13.
The solution to addiction is not a method but rather a Savior.
What comes out of our mouths is a reflection of the issues of our heart.
God’s anger is just and right, whereas, mine is not.
Faith begins with the belief that my loving, heavenly Father is in control.
A lifestyle that is truly free is one where we submit to Christ in every aspect of our lives.
Anything we look to for comfort, love, or well-being other than Christ, draws us away from the one, true lover of our soul.”
Dear sisters, may you be reminded today of these simply truths, may I encourage you to also seek Him, who is the Lover of your soul! Seek His face today as you continue to walk by faith and not by sight!
