“Then Hannah prayed: ‘My heart rejoices in the Lord! The Lord has made me strong.'”
1 Samuel 2:1
Women have always been shaping the world.
Just because a person doesn’t have a title or a label or a position doesn’t mean that they’re not in leadership.
There is no one in the universe who has not come through the womb of a woman.
When woman was created, she was created to be a problem solver.
The Bible says it was not good for man to be alone, and therefore God created woman to solve a problem and meet a need.
“I will make a companion…a helper suited to his needs.”
Genesis 2:18 TLB
Today’s marketplace is fertile soil for those who can Solve problems, Address issues, and Meet needs—an acronym I’ve often heard referred to as S.A.M.
Women don’t struggle with opportunity—they struggle with identity; they struggle with knowing who they are and how they’re wired to succeed.
Join me LIVE this Thursday at 7pm ET for the 4 Points Broadcast!
In this week’s 4 Points Broadcast, I will continue to unlock the divine potential hidden in your DNA.
When a person reaches outside of themselves to find solutions, they are enslaved by those solutions. When they reach on the inside, they are liberated.
Everything you need to succeed has been loaded within your unique genome.
You read your genome—your DNA—like a book.
Jesus said, “Behold, I have come—in the volume of the book it is written of Me” (Hebrews 10:7). He wasn’t referring to a physical book; He was referring to what had already been written about who He was in His DNA.
If you reach on the inside, you’ll find out your DNA is encrypted with a message about your identity, similar to the words written in a book.
When a prophet prophecies over you, he is reading from the pages of a book.
He or she is talking about something you already are. Everything you need to succeed is encrypted in your DNA.
This is what potential is all about.
If we learn to turn to the Creator, we’ll find that each one of us has been given a purpose to fulfill on the earth.
God told Jeremiah:
“Before I formed thee in the belly I knew thee; and before thou camest forth out of the womb I sanctified thee, and I ordained thee a prophet unto the nations.”
Jeremiah 1:5 KJV
And Jeremiah responds, “I cannot speak for I am a child” (1:6)—but then God said, “Say not I am a child!” (1:7).
Because the words you speak move molecules, and molecules have memory.
Your words create something like a train track that goes out into the world in the realm of spirit. But then that same train track brings a response back around—the same thing you’re saying returns to you as an experience.
Who do you say that your are?
Jesus asked His disciples, “Who do people say that I am?” He knew there was some brand confusion about who He was in the marketplace. (See Matthew 16:13-14.)
As a result, Jesus spends the rest of His life making a series of “I” statements.
Likewise, if you don’t make a series of “I” statements, you will forever live with a series of “you” statements—what other people say about you.
As a woman who shapes the world, never get confidence mixed up with arrogance.
Just because you announce that you’re strong and you’re great and you’re powerful, doesn’t mean you’re arrogant; it simply means you know who you are.
Refuse to allow someone else’s insecurity to be projected onto you!
And don’t turn to people for guidance who’ve never been where you’re trying to go.
This is why I’m hosting an incredible event exclusively for women confident about their capacity to shape the future and the world.
Plan now to join me for the inaugural…
