Do you feel like quitting or giving up in life? I urge you to dare to be different. In the Bible, there are a lot of stories, where women names like Rahab, the prostitute, who despite her status was determined to make a difference and her linage later produced Jesus, Ruth, who refused to be sent back to her people, just because, she lost her husband and there was nothing for her.
Despite the pressure from her mother-in-law, she was determined to carry on with life and the result was, she got married to a king.
What about the Hebrew women, who on their own, save the life of Moses, they risked their lives even when they knew, that the result can be death. They end up saving the life of Moses who later delivered the Israelite. Let’s talk about Queen Esther, who was an orphan, her status did not limit her.
When she got the chance to succeed, she claimed it, she became a Queen and through her focus and determination, she ends up achieving her goals despite the risk, that she might lose her life if she goes into the presence of the king on invited. Her courageous mind leads her to save the Jewish.
Now let us talk about the five women in the Bible, that their names, were not mentioned, but end up been referred to because of their determination. Their lives history, show us that no matter what you are going through, never let your status, your nationality limit you.
If you have the vision and the clarity of what you want, and you are not listening to people’s opinions on how you should live your life. Then you are on your road to success.
Your mind is another thing, that should be prepared so that when an opportunity comes you will immediately recognize it.
Like the woman at the well in the book of John 4:4-42, she was a Samaritan woman, who knew, there were no connections between them and the Jewish. On that faithful day, when she met Jesus at the well, although she has been hearing of the Messiah, that is to come, what she never knew, was she will be the first to see and met Him.
In life, never allow your present situation, your family history or condition, determine who you want to become. Whatever you are going through today, will surely pass away, if you are prepared to receive and grab the opportunity that shows before you.
When Jesus asked the woman for a drink, she was surprised and answered. You are a Jew and I am a Samaritan woman. How can you ask me for a drink? For Jews do not associate with Samaritans.
Jesus answered, by saying, only if you know, who is asking you for a drink, you will do that with all urgency because l will give you living water where you will never test again.
Sometimes, it might be a failed relationship, marriage, business, health, etc. As long as you have a positive mind-set and attitude, no matter what comes you will succeed.
The woman was calm and said to Jesus, I need that living water. That is demanding for your right because everything has been giving to us to enjoy. See Genesis 1:28. Never you follow the wind of doctrine. Stick to your vision and what everyone says should not bother you. You are unique in your own way.
Like the woman, she had been doing her research, about the coming of the Messiah, but never know when He will come. keep on with that vision it is for an appointed time.
If you are called to be a speaker, doctor, nurse cleaner, a teacher, an evangelist, or a pastor. All you need is to gradually start working towards that goal and vision. When Jesus, finally asked her about her husband, she said the truth. She said am not married.
In life, you need to be truthful to yourself on what you want, no need to pretend. Do not follow the follower. Jesus seeing that she was truthful told her everything about herself, ”you are right, said Jesus, you are not married, and the man you are living with is your number five and not married to you”.
Then the woman was surprised and said you are the Messiah we have been waiting for. She ran into the village telling everyone about Jesus. Are you still waiting for people’s opinions before you take on that vision of yours?
When the disciples came back they were surprised to see Jesus talking to a woman. In life, people might see you as weird, when you start that carrier, business, get married to your dream man, become a nurse or a pastor, a speaker, etc.
Sometimes it is good to confuse the people with your silence, let people discover who you have become, keep on working on your talent, after your service your reward will surprise people.
Don’t quit. Don’t give up. Your breakthrough is near.
