Current events have spurred many career women to seek God for the first time. I recently interviewed Meta Washington for the Christian Career Women Podcast “Women of Influence” series. Meta is an on-air personality for Kirk Franklin’s Praise on Sirius XM Satellite Radio and founder of letspraytogether.org.
During our interview, Meta shared three strategies for career women who are seeking faith for the first time.
1. Know the Word for yourself.
People are fallible, so it is best if you take the initiative to dive into the Bible instead of only listening to others. Don’t commit to only one translation of the Bible, especially if you find one too confusing. Understand what you’re reading. If you can’t understand the promises God makes in His Word, you can’t have faith in them.
2. Give faith time to work.
We won’t all have the same faith walk. You can’t look at somebody else to determine if your own faith is working. Don’t let people bully you into faith. Take your weaknesses and difficult moments straight to God. Faith is not instantaneous. They say, “Faith not tested is faith not trusted,” and that’s so true. Your faith walk is what builds your faith.
3. Let God work with you.
God has you on a unique journey and will build your faith along the way. He might take you on a path you never expected or put you in a situation where you have no choice but to trust Him. This isn’t to punish you; it’s an opportunity for you to learn that when you are weak, He is strong.
