Yes, God Calls Women

Psalm 68:11

The Lord gave the command; a great company of women brought the good news.

Please note that these women were called by the Lord to speak for Him. They were to declare God’s works among the people. I find it sad and discouraging that many in the church still do not recognize the gifts and callings of women. They accept those gifts and callings as long as it is working with children or possibly teaching a woman’s class but recognize leadership gifts and callings as reserved for men only. This view is not biblical when compared against the whole of Scripture. 

God is raising up women in this day to speak for Him. In biblical times, men would go to war and send a messenger to the camp to announce victory. The women would run throughout the village announcing that victory. I believe we are living in a day that is so close to the coming of Christ that God is sending forth the word to His women to declare the victory He has already won for us! 

As a woman, you have a calling. God has gifted you in some way to advance His kingdom. Don’t let anyone degrade you in the work of God because you are a woman. Those who refuse to acknowledge the gifts and callings of women in the church may soon find their own numbers dwindling as God calls women into places where He can use them to proclaim His mighty works and advance His kingdom. God gives the command. Don’t let the fact that you are a woman stop you!

Have a blessed day!
