Being Re-Defined by God, means we are no longer walking in the Old man, but living in the New man having put on Christ.

 Mirror, Mirror on the Wall, who am I after  all? 
How many times do we womenlook in the mirror and cringe.Funny, men pass by a storefrontwindow and they pay attention,suck in their gut, push out theirchest and brush their hair, maketheir fist and pump a muscle.“Man, I look GOOD!”Conversely, Women walk by andsuddenly react as if they havebeen attacked, shrieking andscurrying past it, putting theirhand up over their eyes as if likea horse they need blinders andrush for the other side of thestreet.We have been so brain washed,we have swallowed so manythings that are fed to us, and nowwe have a very wrong andskewed view of what we arecalled to and called to be. Wecompare ourselves with others allthe time and we either pridefullyboast we are not like someoneelse or we want to bury our headin the sand and disappear intothe background.LION KING QUOTE:“You are more than what youhave become!”

Ladies, We are often ineffectivebecause we seek our ownways...the ways of either theprideful or the prisoner - We areOFTEN defined by ourGARBAGE! We wear it like agarment.We bring into our every daylives so much more than justthese silly misrepresentations ofwhat we are told we aresupposed to do or be. We bringour own insecurities, our owninferiorities, our own baggagefrom our hurts, our shame, oursin, our past, our regrets, ourself abuse, our blame, ourbereavement, our belittling lies,discouragement, our discontent,our dissatisfaction, our anger,agitation, agendas, attitudes,failures, fears and all ourtroubled history....we come asvictims, prisoners and slaves.And with that we expect to beeffective in our walk and displayof the God we serve.GOD wants to change that! Wehave an incredible opportunity inChrist to be REDEFINED byGOD - not our Garbage. Wecould stay though in the oldgarments couldn’t we.Comfortable in what we know.The new garments, new fit, newstyle, could be a little differentand pull on different areas of usthat we are not familiar orcomfortable with. Maybe thebrilliance of those coloredgarments are not our normalattire...perhaps we are too usedto the drab, dark.Transformation is a wonderfulthing. It may not be easy, but itis beautiful. Caterpillars arechanged at the molecular leveland
TRANSFORMED
intobutterflies. they go fromcrawling on the grown to flyingthrough the air, from sluggishlytraipsing on branches and theforest floors to wafting about ongentle breezes, from eatinggreen leaves to being sippingthe sweet nectar of flowers.Butterflies also have thedistinctly unique job along withbees of pollination withoutwhich we would not have any ofour nuts, fruits or vegetableswhich bring incredible nutrition toour daily lives.WE NEED an EXCHANGEPOLICY unlike any we have everreceived.We can turn in our worn out,discarded, ragged, destroyed andtorn apart lives, and exchangethem for HIS LIFE.GOD is in the BUSINESS ofEXCHANGE ---IF---We will cometo Him, surrender to Him, Live forHIM!!!If we HOPE in God, He will notdisappoint. If we focus ouraffections, our attention, ouraspirations on Him, He will Supplyour every need, and exchange / turn our lives in.

We need ourSpiritual DNAradically altered,which happens atthe ALTAR!A surrender to thewill and ways ofGod, a death ofourselves. Withoutit there is NOresurrection power,no transformation!
Spending time with the Lordis key, because its as wespend time with Him, Hemakes us into the Ladies Hedesires of us.
Do notconform to the pattern of thisworld, but be transformed bythe renewing of your mind”Rom 12;2
All through out the scriptures God used women to show His power of Redefining Wonder.ie., Sarah a barren woman - Gave birth to the nation of God.I want to look a 4 women in old testament - who you may or may not be familiar with.
!
TAMAR - a woman whose husband died, and was essentially cast aside, neglected, andavoided by her father in law who was by law then to be responsible for her care.
!
RAHAB - a prostitute, well known, perhaps a ‘madam’ known by the upper echelons of themilitary, governmental officials. Pagan
!
RUTH - a moabite, widow, with no one to care for her. A woman who was considered adefiled woman because of her historical ancestry of the nations birth out of incest. living inforeign lands in obscurity - Pagan
!
BATHSHEBA - a woman raped by the King/coverup by authorities, whose husband waskilled.
!
AND YET BECAUSE ALL THESE WOMEN put their HOPE in GOD - HE CHANGEDRadically their circumstances - and they were all mentioned in the Lineage of Jesus Christ ofMatthew chapter One - In fact, they are the only wives in the blood line passage of scripturementioned.Think of the Incredible amount of pain, suffering, distress, humiliation, and loss these womensuffered.
