This weekend, I was humbled to be part of a women’s conference with the theme ‘bringing out the jewel in you’ amidst some powerful women of God who shared so many valuable nuggets on the process of becoming a jewel in Christ. As someone that serves the body of Christ by leading people to freedom from spiritual oppression, I shared my perspective on how you become a jewel.
Many of you know deep within that you are supposed to be more than what your life represents at the moment. You know there is more for you and you want more. You have done all you know to do to get to that next level but there seems to be no change. You have fasted, prayed, been to conferences but you are still experiencing stagnation in your life, or maybe even a declining stance in life. This is an experience that I have personally been through and it can be extremely frustrating. So what is the missing link?
There is an unseen agent that does not want us to become that jewel. As I shared at the conference, I believe that the secret lies in Genesis 3:15 And I will put enmity between you and the woman, and between your offspring and hers; he will crush your head, and you will strike his heel.” God himself is speaking here and letting us in on a key to our freedom from bondage. This sounds like warfare to me and although the church tends to shy away from addressing and teaching on this, spiritual warfare is a fact of life. You see the enemy is in a war with the woman and her seed, whether the woman acknowledges it or not. Christ came to help us win this war. 1 John 3:8 … For this purpose the Son of God was manifested, that he might destroy the works of the devil.
Bringing out the jewel involves spiritual warfare! There must be a victorious battle in every oyster for the jewel to be brought out. If you are going to birth your destiny and walk in your purpose, you will have to learn how to take a hold of the legal certificate of freedom Jesus gave us and use that to posses your freedom. If I am a homeless person living under a bridge and someone gives me a title to a luxurious fully paid for 4000 sq ft house with my name on it, if I return to sleeping under the bridge, my condition will not change. I must understand what the title means for my life and how I can use it to get the keys to my new home in order to possess and occupy my new home.
Thank God for Jesus! We don’t have to loose this battle. We can learn how to crush the head of the enemy. Psalm 144:1 says Blessed be the Lord my strength which teacheth my hands to war, and my fingers to fight. Remember that Christ has won the battle for you and I, he has given us the title to the treasure house. Colossians 2:15 And having spoiled principalities and powers, he made a shew of them openly, triumphing over them in it.
Use your title today and demand your rights to occupy, poses your possessions in Jesus name!
