Daily Delight

As women, we face adversity on a daily basis. We have a lot to overcome and many expectations on us. I recently had a friend who is called to ministry be told that, because she is a woman, she needs to play a smaller role in the church rather than be in a lead position. This man's words tore her apart and frankly made me angry. I realized, though, that God takes our opposition and turns it into opportunity. He takes the bad situations and uses it all for His glory. The enemy tries to hurt us, but we must not forget that God has already won. He has plans for each of us and nothing will get in His way. Everything is a learning opportunity and a growing pain, but the end result is flawless.

If you have faced an impossible situation, remember Who is in charge. Remember what God has to say about you as His child. Remember that God created you the way you are and He knows you better than anyone. If you trust Him, he will see you through. If you feel unqualified because you're a woman, He will give you strength. We often face a struggle right before we soar. Don't lose hope because God will use your testimony for the advancement of His kingdom. "You intended to harm me, but God intended it for good to accomplish what is now being done, the saving of many." Genesis 50:20 (NIV)
