Use Your Authority

(Part 1)

Today women are breaking through to new levels of leadership, and yet there is still opposition. But God is calling women, like Deborah, to "awake" and claim with faith the leadership potential they have, knowing that they can make a powerful difference.


READ: Judg. 4; Judg. 5:12; Judg. 7:7; Hos. 2:14; Acts 14:22; Phil. 2:10.
HEART ISSUE: You can make a difference for Christ at home, at the office, at church and in your day-to-day interactions. God is calling you to new and greater assignments of leadership. Think of how you can have more impact on others by volunteering more or by accepting greater leadership roles at church. The possibilities are numerous.
PRAYER FOCUS: Father, thank You that You have made me Your strong voice of influence. Thank You for empowering me to show others who You are and how You work. Amen.

(Part 2)

God, through Jesus Christ, has given women authority to lead and to be a great influence for His kingdom. God encourages women to press on to new expressions of His power working through them.


READ: Gen. 1:26-28; Luke 7:8; Luke 9:1-2; Luke 10:19; Rom. 5:17; 2 Cor. 5:20; Eph. 1:22-23; 1 Pet. 2:9.
HEART ISSUE: Have you taken time to consider new levels or areas of leadership where God is leading you? Have you taken action to press through any barriers?
PRAYER FOCUS: Father, thank You that my words give others encouragement, Your love and wisdom—always pointing to hope in Jesus. Thank You that I am awake to Your call and am moving in greater ways of leadership, so that Jesus Christ will be glorified. Amen.
