The word I received from the Lord this year was that women are going to begin to birth what they have been impregnated with in the Spirit. For years, I’ve seen women, struggling to birth dreams, ministries, careers, and this has left women frustrated and stuck. Whether it has been due to fear, anxiety, mistrust or just life. I believe we are in a season of Isaiah 43:19 right now!
“See, I am doing a new thing!
Now it springs up; do you not perceive it?
I am making a way in the wasteland.”
It is time to align! It is time to birth forth!
For thousands of years women have been used, abused, and made less, but as we study and read the word, we realize that according to Galatians 3:28 “There is neither Jew nor Gentile, neither slave nor free, nor is there male and female, for you are all one in Christ Jesus.”
We were created to love God and connect with each other through this love for our creator.
We chose the name Genesis, because we understand Genesis was the place of birth of humanity. Yes, it was also the fall of humanity, but it’s been taught that it was through a woman humanity fell (which we can agree to disagree on), but rarely do we talk about the fact that it was through a woman that the redemption of the world would be birthed, through Jesus. It was Mary’s obedience and availability that aligned her to birth the Savior of the world. Genesis was redeemed in the synoptic gospels of Matthew, Mark, Luke, and John. Every woman in the word birthed something out of obedience and we are doing just that!
It is with much prayer and confirmation that we launch this first official Genesis Women’s Retreat.
