Luke 1:43 – In a loud voice she exclaimed: “Blessed are you among women, and blessed is the child you will bear!
Deuteronomy 7:6 – “For you are a people holy to the Lord your God. The Lord your God has chosen you out of all the peoples on the face of the earth to be his people, his treasured possession.”
I like to personalise scripture so when given your text in Luke 1:43 I pondered and meditated on it before the Lord.
“Blessed am I among women” “Blessed is Patricia among women”
I thought “Lord how can this be? There are so many women in the world. I am surrounded by a lot of women some who are far more intelligent, more beautiful & wealthier than me. How can it be that I am blessed among them? Then God reminded me of his word for the year
Psalm 75:6 “For promotion [cometh] neither from the east, nor from the west, nor from the south.”
Therefore true promotion doesn’t come from how educated or how beautiful or how rich the world perceives you to be.
According to The dictionary the word promotion means activity that supports or encourages a cause, venture, or aim. It means encouragement, furtherance, advancement, assistance, aid, contribution, development.
The bible tells us God wants to encourage us further assist and develop us. All because of his great love for us.
Ladies have you ever been at the supermarket when there is a promotion on a certain product? As recent as today in my local supermarket they had a promotion on a particular brand of shampoo. Literally hundreds of different brands of shampoo lined the shelves of a very long aisle, however this one particular brand was being promoted by the company who manufactured it. This brand was not only on the shelves but had a fancy display sitting in the middle of the aisle with eye catching signs and a special price to draw your attention to it.
A few years ago I worked in sales & Marketing and my manager would always talk on the four “P’s” of Marketing.
I love the way the Lord uses what we know to help us gain understanding and teach us biblical principles that will lead me to be blessed among women. Today he showed me the four P’s I must know to be called out for his supernatural promotion and become truly blessed among women.
1 Corinthians 6:20 “you were bought at a price. Therefore honor God with your bodies.”
The worth of a thing is determined by its price. My worth was the blood of Jesus, a price he paid on the cross all because God so loves me. I am loved!
Funny a price was paid so that to God I’ve become priceless. I am his most treasured possession.““They shall be Mine,” says the LORD of hosts, “On the day that I make them My jewels.” Malachi 3:17 .
He created and manufactured me. He knitted me together in my mothers womb. God created me therefore I am his product and Psalm 139 says ” I am beautifully & wonderfully made” even by the worlds standard Handcrafted goods are of better quality, superior and more expensive than machine mass produced products. I’m a hand made product of God. As my husband says “Assembled in heaven made in Ireland and dispatched to the world!”. Nothing God created was ugly. I am beautiful!
I have the best brand name in the world. “child of God”. Therefore it is not man I should look towards to promote me but God. The purpose of a product is in the heart of the manufacturer. I was created for a purpose and God is my promoter!
Position yourself in line with God’s word. Christ is in you now and you are in him. Your only place is in Christ. Your place is not hanging out with the ungodly or doing ungodly things in order to be blessed or promoted. Honour God with your heart & body and God who sees the heart will see to it that you are at the right place at the right time. God will see to it that you are placed in the Center aisle with his glory on your head like a neon sign, drawing the right people towards you. You are God’s residence and how lovely is his dwelling place.
Ecclesiastes 9:11 – I have seen something else under the sun: The race is not to the swift or the battle to the strong, nor does food come to the wise or wealth to the brilliant or favor to the learned; but time and chance happen to them all.
God told me by applying these four Biblical P’s it is he who will market me. If I keep my faith and trust firmly in him. Love him with all my heart and soul and love my neighbour as myself. It is him and him alone that will remove me from the worlds shelf of billions of women, promote me so that I stand out and make me blessed among them.
Praying Gods love and divine wisdom over each you in Jesus name.
I am a promoted woman.
God is my promoter.
I am His greatest treasure and his gift to my world. Everywhere I go carry His divine presence and grace.
I have the best brand name in all of God’s creation, I am a child of God.
I am chosen and called out from the world. I am special, beautifully and wonderfully made.
