Scripture

“Stand up, you complacent women; listen to me. Pay attention to what I say, you overconfident daughters.”

‭‭Isaiah‬ ‭32:9‬ ‭HCSB‬‬

Reflection

Let’s be clear–this scripture is speaking to women but it’s not just for women. I do want the women to embrace this message because it’s important for us to dig deep and remember how special we truly are in God’s eyes; it’s important to realize how valuable we are to Him, and that we have been reduced to be below men, by men, but not by God. Never by God.

I also want the men who are taking in today’s message to understand that it doesn’t matter if the word says he, she, him, her, son, daughter, father, mother, man, or woman—it is of great importance that men place their feet within the shoes of whomever is being spoken to so that you can see through, respect and appreciate more than just your lens. You will then also see that what applies to one can also apply to you.

That is one major step and stage towards humility and humbleness. It is also a major step towards being more and living more like our Savior, Jesus Christ.

With this understanding, let’s reflect on today’s scripture:

Every day we should have an action plan for doing something different in our lives, for taking the next step towards greatness; and never content with simply getting by.

‘Easy’ should never be our goal and motivation.

Let’s strive for being better than average, since God is no average god; He is the ultimate, all-knowing, all-seeing, all-powerful, being everywhere and everything to all creatures…God.

As His reflection we can’t walk with lower expectations of ourselves or those who we associate with.

Step up, show up, and show who you really are as a child of our heavenly Father-Mother.

Prayer

Father I know that You don’t approve of laziness, complacency, and contentment with the status quo of the world.

I never want to be satisfied with mediocrity, with doing what others are doing, or being comfortable with someone else taking care of me or making decisions on my behalf.

I want to always be standing, moving, thinking, and doing my best to live life as You expect of me.

Thank You Father for instilling that passion and purpose in my life. I love You. Amen.

Love you all,

Natasha

You women who are so complacent, rise up and listen to me; you daughters who feel secure, hear what I have to say!

Isaiah 32:9
