Up Holy Ghost!
Happy international women’s day to you all, and I will say this to All Christian women.
In the world today, the theme that has been chosen is Break the Bias. People are talking about gender inequality, the discriminations that have gone against the female species of human beings, but as God’s daughters, Galatians 3:27-29 has settled it for us a long time ago.
Your identity in Christ is not limited by your gender.
Galatians 3:27-29 (KJV)
For as many of you as have been baptized into Christ have put on Christ. There is neither Jew nor Greek, there is neither bond nor free, there is neither male nor female: for ye are all one in Christ Jesus. And if ye be Christ’s, then are ye Abraham’s seed, and heirs according to the promise.
So, in Christ, in the anointing, in the power of God, in your spiritual heritage, no male, no female, no gender and no gender inequality.
Don’t let being female stop you!
Don’t let being female reduce you!
Don’t let being female limit you from becoming all that God has ordained you to be!
Remember the daughters of Zelophehad in Numbers 27 & 36. I want you to take time today to read those two chapters of the Bible.
Gender inequality is a mindset; mindset in the minds of some men, mindset in the minds of some women. But, the Zelophehad daughters had a different mindset; they had a kingdom mindset, they had a God-mindset. They were not going to give them an inheritance because they were females and their father had no son. They walked up to the prophet, Moses, and they said, ‘Our father had no son, but he has daughters’. We are here; we are strong, we are able, we are competent. We have the capability, we can handle our father’s inheritance, we are wise, we are fruitful. We have something that we can do to make a difference. And Moses went to the Lord; they spoke with such confidence, and the prophet said, ‘Let me seek God ‘ and when he got before the Lord, the Father said, ‘They are right, give it to them’. They should not be denied inheritance because they are female.
So, gender inequality is a mindset, it must not be in your mind, and you must not allow anyone who has that in their mind to alter your own greatness in any way because in Christ, in the scriptures, in the Holy Ghost, you have a higher mindset; a no male no female in Christ mindset.
Have the mindset of Philippians 4:13 that says I can do all things through Christ which strengtheneth me.
It is Christ that makes the difference; it is Christ that bridges the gap.
Have that mindset, the Jeremiah 29:11 mindset that the Father has spoken over you;
For I know the thoughts that I think toward you, saith the Lord, thoughts of peace, and not of evil, to give you an expected end.
To give you a positive outcome, to give you a future and a hope.
So, no limits, no limitations, no barriers, no bias.
Don’t allow the bias within yourself, and the barrier will be broken.
Don’t allow bias from anyone, and the barrier will be broken.
I can only charge you today in the spirit of the female champion that you are,
I can only say, ‘Go baby go!’
You may say, ‘well, I am not yet in a relationship’, that must not limit you/alter you, go baby go!
You may say, ‘well, I’m not married, I’ve been waiting’, that must not limit you, go baby go!
That man is meeting you soon. That Boaz, that honourable man, that nobleman is meeting you soon.
You may say, ‘well, I’ve not been pregnant for so many years’.
Come on, go, baby, go!
No egg no sperm, yet twins!!! Your baby is coming soon!
You may even say, ‘I am pregnant, carry my leg, carry my hand’.
Come on, go, baby, go! Pregnancy is not a sickness, pregnancy is a physiological change, and you will deliver safely.
Baby well, mother well! Go, baby, go!
Don’t say, ‘I have so many kids to handle, can I still cope with advancing myself to further my education.
Come on, go, baby, go! You can do all things through Christ that strengthens you.
‘Oh, my husband is not cooperating’.
God is cooperative, so go, baby, go!
‘Oh, I’ve been sickly. Since I had my last baby, I’ve not been feeling myself.’
Come on, let the restoration power of God come upon you! Let your health be fully restored; go, baby, go!
No matter what the enemy has brought your way to hinder you, to limit you; they look at you some way, they treat you someway in the office, they look down on you because you’re a woman, in-laws want to treat you anyhow, it is what is in your mind that allow or disallow.
Disallow! Disallow!! Disallow!!!
Disallow anyone that will reduce what God has given you because you are a female.
You are too anointed to be local.
Build up the anointing of God over your life, and you will break forth in your glocal (global and local) destiny.
Our father, Rev Olusola Areogun, told us that terminology, that your destiny is both local and global.
You make a difference in your immediate environment, and then you go far across the nations.
May what God has put in you be nurtured, prepared, matured, and grown to its full measure to reach the nations in the name of Jesus.
One more time, Happy International Women’s Day!
I celebrate all of you, Christian women, wonderful women, trailblazers in the glory of God.
Keep going for God; it is well with you all in Jesus’ name. (Amen)
I love you all!
Rev Oyenike Areogun.
