The spirit of a woman!

In those days I will pour out my Spirit even on my servants—men and women alike— and they will prophesy. (Acts of the Apostles 2:18 NLT)

Mother's Day is near. While reading my bible I stumbled across this verse. 

God treats men and women as equals. There is no debate. It's true....... End of story!

Somehow over time, women have been given the role of a servant. They were excluded from many roles in society including leadership in the church. None of it is supported biblically. I am glad churches have changed to support women. In my entire life I can name woman after woman, filled with the Holy Spirit. In all reality, the church today would not exist without the spirit filled women that tirelessly serve our communities. More often than not, women are also the spiritual leaders in the home and are the real prayer warriors of our lives. We need to set honor ALL women for their sacrificial love and leadership.

The leadership role that most women accept without question is that of mother. Yes, leadership role. Even in the old fashioned, traditional role, women have always been leaders of the home.  We should honor them with every ounce of energy we can generate. My mother, my wife, my daughters, are all wondeful examples of Godly mothers. I am so thankful to be blessed with them in my life. They are prime examples of what God has designed women to be. 

Dear Lord, thank you for the "mothers" in my life. I ask a special prayer and a special blessing to these women. Protect them from all harm, from stress and from worry.mshow your presence in their lives. Give them peace through all things. Please help all of us to honor the women in our lives, not just the mothers. Help us to treat them with honor and respect, not just as servants, but as real leaders at home, work, and school. We love you Lord. We Praise you Lord! Amen!
