Do you feel like you’re sitting on the sidelines of life waiting for a sign, a mentor, or something to happen to tell you...it’s time?
Friend, Jesus is calling you to RISE UP!
LISA BEVERE Joins me today on the Strong. Confident. His. Podcast.
We dive deep into the concept of her new book, the need for Godly women in your life... aka a “Godmother.”
The necessity of digging up your God-given gifts (you know the ones you may have buried in fear and perfectionism), and inspire you to Rise up, put the word of God in your mouth, and take action!
Lisa Bevere has spent three decades empowering women to find their identity and purpose. She is a cancer survivor and a New York Timesbestselling author. Her books include Without Rival, Adamant, Lioness Arising, and Girls with Swords. Lisa and her husband, John, co-founded Messenger International to develop uncompromising followers of Christ who transform their world. To this end, Messenger has given away nearly 40 million resources in over 100 languages.
Do you need a mentor or maybe even better.... a Godmother?
So many of us may not even realize we’re looking for one.
We’re searching for someone who has gone before us, they know the way, they’re the Jesus we need here on earth to help us through…
But here's the deal with mentors, they create little versions of themselves, where a Godmother wants you to be God's best version of you!
Lisa's quotes from Godmother:
As daughters of God the Father, it is not a stretch to call ourselves goddaughters. And daughters need mothers who help them find their way.
We want to know there is hope, that good will triumph, and tears will be wiped away.
She’d teach me to laugh at my future even as I cried in the moment.
DIG UP YOUR TREASURE
So many of us are looking for our purpose and we question what God has called us to do. We look for permission to be who God has called us to be.
Lisa shares how to know and trust our gifts and why we play small and allow ourselves to settle for less than God’s plan...when we know in our hearts He’s calling us.
Lisa's quotes from Godmother:
Insecure and unsure, you wrap your dreams in rags so it will not be recognized. Some go even further, they dig a hole.
The enemy knows that one way to stop the pure-hearted is to freeze them with fear of making one wrong move.
When you bury your talent, you rob yourself.
Our Father would not give us talents if we were incapable of multiplying them.
DIG IT UP! What have you buried in fear? What disappointment caused you to forgot that our Father is good?
Gifts are meant to be used!
Your past does not have the power to negate God’s hand on your future
RISE UP AND TAKE ACTION
When I read this, I literally stood up!
Lisa shares how in the Message version of Judges 5:7, it says,
“Warriors became fat and sloppy, no fight left in them. Then you Deborah ROSE UP, you got up, a MOTHER in Israel."
Everything changed when Deborah arose. And the same will happen when you arise.
The warriors may be scare, but goddaughter, it’s time for you to arse and speak the word of God in your mouth so that your family, husband, and sons and daughters might also ARISE! God is doing a new thing!
Lisa's quotes form Godmother:
God lifts us to lift others
The people trying to silence you are not the ones with your answer.
Having a mother’s heart begins with blessing others in the very areas we once felt cursed.
Thank you for the overwhelming gift of this time with Lisa. I pray a blessing over the work of her hands.
We pray for the women who are listening or watching that they would know they are not alone and they don’t have to go it alone. Father help them find a godmother to guide them through.
We need each other in our lonely world. Help us unearth the treasures you have in us, and empower us through the Holy Spirit to Rise up and take action.
Even in our flaws and fears, we can be warriors for you!
Have mercy on us and give us your strength.
In Jesus’ Name. Amen!
The Lord will repay you for what you have done, and a full reward be given you by the Lord, the God of Israel, under whose wings you have come to take refuge! – Ruth 2:10-11
Now you know I”m never going to leave you without asking you to get into action, because nothing happened without it!
