To wake up means "to lift up and to stir." This is what Deborah was doing when she said, "'Until I, Deborah, arose, until I arose, a mother in Israel'" (Judg. 5:7). Woman of God, wherever you're assigned—at home or in the workplace—awaken! Lift up and stir. You are to take dominion and rule. Cry out to God to open your eyes. Ask Him to show you how to bring all that's within your sphere into the order of God.

Through the power of the Holy Spirit, restore righteousness, destiny, love, healing, deliverance, wisdom, counsel and peace wherever you are. Send every warring power that fights against God on its way. Take your place and rule in the midst of your enemies.

You and I are made to take dominion, to awake, to arise and to stand up tall through the power and authority of Jesus Christ. Whatever's in our hands, we have the right to cause it to flourish.

Our nation isn't unlike Deborah's. It's waiting for women to awake, to open their eyes and to say, "I can change what's been put within my realm." Awake, awake! You're far more powerful than you've realized. Arise, stand up and take your place. Change your sphere! Bring it under the lordship of Jesus Christ, mighty women of God!
