“In him was life; and the life was the light of men.” John 1:4
I was the first in my family to graduate from a university, the first to wait until I was married to have children, the first to own and operate a successful design business, and the first to lead a global women’s ministry all by God’s grace. It has taken the help of Holy Spirit to come to grips with the reality that I am a pioneer. A pioneer is one who goes before to remove obstructions or prepare the way for another. Because no one in my surroundings has done what God has called me to do, I have had to read books, watch documentaries of great men and women, and look to Jesus, who is my example.
Until Jesus, no one on earth had ever fed multitudes of people with three fish and five loaves of bread. No one had performed healing miracles, raised the dead, cast out demons, or calmed stormy seas with just a word. Instead of fighting the pioneer within Himself, Jesus embraced it. He understood that He was paving the way for you and me to do great exploits by His power.
My sister, God has called you to be a pioneer. You will be the first in your family to do great works, live on that level, and achieve wonderful things by His grace. Yes, you are paving the way for others who will come after you. You will drop a ladder. I declare over you now that just as Jesus completed His assignment, so will you. Just as Jesus stole away to receive strength and wisdom from His Father, so will you. Just as Jesus didn’t allow Himself to be thrown off course by the opinions of those who had never done what He was sent to do, you won’t either. You will be the beautiful pioneer God has created you to be.
Prayer: Father, thank you for your encouragement to the core of my being. You have called me to do something no one around me has ever done. Help me, Lord, to be the pioneer you’ve created me to be. My trust is in you. According to your word, I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me. In Jesus’ name, Amen.
(Read Daniel 11:28b; Philippians 4:19)
