“Now go; I will help you speak and will teach you what to say” Exodus 4:12, NIV.
Growing up, I was the quiet one, and my little sister was the loud and outspoken one that no one messed with. Her facial expression alone said to everyone, you better not bother me or else! That wasn’t the case for me. As a child, it was as though I had a neon sign over my head that read, “Touch me!” It started with a touch from a cousin and then from my neighbor’s grandfather. Then, a touch from a teenage boy whose mom was a close family friend. I would sit there. Frozen. Lay there. Frozen. One day before my mother took me to school, I built up the courage to tell her what was going on. I sat in the car as she went into the house and fussed at the teen boy, threatening to send him to jail. He never touched me again, but other boys did. That sign on my head was flashing brightly. My question to myself was, why was I quiet? What happened to my screaming, “No! Stop!” Why wasn’t I more like my loud and mean sister that no one bothered? Oh, I hated this about myself.
Surrendering my life to Jesus at 12 years old was the best thing that could have ever happened to me. Getting to know my God personally, learning who He is and who I am in Him. Being filled with His Holy Spirit and hearing myself speak in a heavenly language bolder than my natural voice. This gave me a new identity and a strength of character and voice I had desired my entire life. I was no longer that little girl with the flashing sign over my head that said, “Touch me.” Now, I had a new sign that read, “God’s daughter! Look, but don’t touch!
My sister, if you have spent your years without an identity, purpose, and voice, the Spirit of God is intervening in your life right now today. By His Spirit, He is removing any sign that’s been hovering over your head that tells demonic spirits to use you, manipulate and abuse you. Your Father in heaven is placing above you His banner of love, and He is informing your mind and your spirit of who He is and who you are in Him. Your mighty God is filling you with His Spirit and giving you a mighty voice that shakes the heavens.
You are no longer that weak, motionless, voiceless girl anymore. You are strong in Christ. You are mighty through Him who loves you. An overcomer and more than a conqueror. God’s angelic army surrounds you, and His Holy Spirit is leading you into all truth. He is teaching your mouth to speak, your heart to love, your hands to reach, and your feet to go where He leads.
Prayer: Father God, thank you. Thank you for coming into my life when you did. Thank you for tearing down and destroying every work of the enemy in my mind and heart and building and establishing in me what is of you. Because of you, I have a voice. I have a new name. I have a new mind, a new heart, and a strength I’ve never known. I receive your help to forgive anyone who violated my trust and misused my body. I receive your strength to forgive myself for not speaking up. I surrender to you and ask you to make me strong, brave, courageous, and bold. Make me who you created me to be. I’m your daughter, and you love me. In Jesus’ name, Amen.

Amen Thank you Father God 🙏🏾
This prophetic devotional speaks volumes to my life and heart. I too, experience a lot and never spoke up. It is still hard at times but when I do people are surprised. Thank you for sharing. May the Lord allow me to find my voice as well. Thank you for sharing. Blessings, Shalom and Agape 👀🙏🏽❤️📖🙌🏽
Good morning good afternoon sisters this is Rhonda B. I take God for all of you guys I really do you don’t know how much it needs to me that I can read the daily devotions but still read my word I’m asking for prayer because I’m going to have to vict my daughter and my grandson out from my home they don’t want to do anything they don’t want to help and they’re refusing to pay any of their part of the bills I feel like and I know I’m going through the same thing that Jonah and the whale did well Joe wanted to run the opposition direction when God asked him to do something for him so I’m asking and I thank you in advance I know God’s working in my life 🙏
Praying for you and the peace of God to bless your home, I pray all your needs will be taken care of in Jesus’ name. Amen
I’m not sure how old your grandson is but if he’s not capable of helping himself please reconsider helping him with the guidance of God. Don’t let him be another child caught up in the world’s system. I’m praying for you and your family and may God’s grace and mercy stay upon you.
Thank you SO MUCH for this today!!! It spoke to me as if I were the one writing it. God has delivered me and given me the voice of thunder to break strongholds (that’s what my pastor told me) and I know God will do it for anyone who trusts Him. Amen and God bless you

Father God– Thank you for placing Your banner of love above me, for changing me into the person that I am today. For forever evolving me, for loving me… For giving me a VOICE!!! Only you could do this Father. I am forever GRATEFUL! 🙌🏽🙏🏽😖😢❤️❤️
Tears are pouring from my eyes – tears of gratefulness, joy, hope, power!!! I believe that each tear represents a hurt, a fear, a lie, an unwanted touch that I (we) have overcome in CHRIST JESUS!!!
As I read this devotional, today, Sunday, March 19, 2023, it felt as though I was reading segments of chapters from my own life….., and just to think that during those difficult and dark times, the enemy’s lies and manipulation caused me to shrink further within myself…. to feel that I was alone in the ugliness. Oh, but ALMIGHTY GOD used it all… turned it all around for my good and for His glory!!! What once caused me shame and pain, has become a testimony of His faithfulness in my life! I called out to Him. I confessed my belief in CHRIST JESUS, and He saved me!!! My heavenly FATHER is Mighty to Save!!! Hallelujah!!! Glory Hallelujah!!!
Thank you for this timely devotional, many things very similar to yours also happened to me and I never spoke up. I don’t believe I had the strength but now I do. Our father God gave it to me and I am grateful in Jesus name Amen 🙏
My, that spoke to me as if I wrote it myself! It resonated with my past and presence so well. I too was abused and molested as a child. I ran away from my abusive environment as a teenager only to run into the arms of the man who became my husband (now ex-husband) and then abused me too. For some time now, the Holy Spirit has been telling me the reason your voice is so loud and full of power when your in the Spirit is because it is your calling to speak and pray in such a way that me and heaven’s host moves on the behalf of mankind in the earth and so that the church hears what I am speaking and people are saved. He also said that I have and am releasing you from the captivity, supression and oppression the enemy had you in. He did so much to suppress and even try to cause you to lose your voice because you are called to be a voice in the earth for me. You are becoming more and more free in me as you go from glory to glory for My Glory.
Devotions and prophetic words just like this are what makes people feel so close to you. Plus, some can relate to you. This is why some want to be close to you. You are real and full of God and His Love. Even so, the stance you took on the matter of professional boundaries was done out of wisdom and was the right move to make. Those who you are friends with are blessed to have such a friend.
Love you & Thank you!
