What's a Woman to Do?

Since the call of a woman is sometimes controversial, you must be prepared to accept good reactions to your call as well as not so good.  However, the validity of your call is in Jesus Christ, and not the reactions that you receive concerning your ministry. 

Amos said:


Amos 7:14: Then answered Amos, and said to Amaziah, I was no prophet, neither was I a prophet's son; but I was an herdman, and a gatherer of sycomore fruit:
15: And the LORD took me as I followed the flock, and the LORD said unto me, Go, prophesy unto my people Israel.


The Lord does not select by the standards of man, but by His own self-counsel and stand of merit of His grace toward man.  Not by our holiness, or by
works of righteousness that we have done.  His work is by unseen measurements beheld only through the eyes of the almighty. We may never know why he made such a selection, but we can know it was good to Him! 

Therefore no man can judge the reason for the selections that was born in the Lord's secret place of His own heart.  We do know, however that we can never deserve such a high calling of service and that it is all by His unmerited favor.  Since this is a place of closeness in obedience to him to the Lord,  we must be thankful to Him and offer ourselves as a sacrifice of a sweet smelling savor unto the Lord.

Acknowledging your call is not the same as heralding it.  Joseph's brothers were not too happy about his dreams.  As a matter of fact, the brothers' knowledge of the dreams caused them to be so angry that they decided to dispose of their own brother.  They finally sold him into slavery and would have killed him had it not been for this elder brother.
