Behold! A woman is made
6 Traits that will get you through life and open doors By Dr Nellie Longwe Kangwa Bible References Numbers 13:24- 32
Many think that the success and the destiny paths happen by chance, that just because they are talented, called, skilled, beautiful and learned this will get them to the places they so desire. Reality is that you have to live life intentionally. There are 6 Traits that one must have as a woman, that will usher into different places and have meals with Kings at their tables without compromising herself. Joshua Son of Nun in the bible references, was always around Moses, meek as a dove and wise as serpent, Caleb on the other hand also a servant of God but very outspoken and outgoing, received an inheritance promise of land from Moses in the promised land and yet Joshua became leader became no 2 because of his wisdom to know how to position himself even though you don’t hear of him much till moses is gone to a point that he didn’t have to wage war to bless Caleb with the Hebron Land he just spoke a blessing that outpoured for generations to come. What can we learn from this? We learn that as women we need exercise some traits to be ahead and to have Grace and Favour accompany us These are the 6traits Being Flexible in Life and with Life Having a child like spirit Having the right attitude The ability to be Liked- Likeability Transparent Communication
Service to the Kingdom; Alignment is key
Lets look at these in detail 1.Being Fliexible in and with Life
Not everything is set in stone, what is important is that your understanding of the matter does not move you away from the face of God in the name of being flexible, being flexible allows you to be welcomed and it also shows consideration.
- Having a child like spirit This is not the same as a childish way or act. This is having the ability to be teachable
This is about always being positive,not taking things to heart, learning the lesson quickly and getting up and go,its about never losing that innocence within you, being adaptable too but always knowing what keeps you grounded
3.Having the right attitude Attitude determines altitiude
You attitude will get you far, it will open doors that would seemingly have been closed. Attitude carries a vibration that can bring blessings or not. Consider what attitude you have and check what is around you
- Likeability( the ability to be liked) As a woman one has to be careful to not cross lines here as some likeability has turned out to be a case of misconstrued information. In the quest to be liked, set boundaries because likeability will usher you into kings palace, get ready to dine with royalty its not about your degree or how many connections you have. So play your cards right Find the good in people and praise them, compliment or uplift Learn to build the people around you and package yourself in all ways presentable
Likeability opens doors you don’t deserve.
5.Transparent communication Be a person of transparency, be a grounded person, yes we can have truth that things are maybe tough or challenging to the world and mask ourselves but there has to a be a place you can pour out and be absolutely you 100% a place of accountability so that no sin hinders you
Who is that one trusted person that Elizabeth that you go to?a
6.Service In serving in the kingdom you need to keep in mind that the one who rewards service is God. As you serve the servant of God you are receiving from Gods bank account of blessings Reference to Joshua 14:9 There are invisible blessings when you serve the man or woman of God There Are battles you don’t fight because of the burden that they carry for you Service provides the secrets of connections
Serving the right person matters too.
Have wisdom have prudence daughters of God
May the Lord bless you
