– CALLING FORTH GIRLS TO WOMANHOOD
In Reply To
Recently, the Lord laid a burden in my heart to call forth girls into womanhood! I had an opportunity to implement what the Lord told me to do in this regard, just this week. It felt like calling Lazarus from the grave! I saw immediate transformation in the 27 year old lady I was calling into womanhood! I believe womanhood is like a great gem that is hidden in every girl. It needs to be discovered, mined and polished!
I believe that the tragedy of the lack of fathers is to blame for failure in discovering, mining and polishing womanhood! We have many women who are still operating as girls rather than women! The father has an obligation to usher his daughter into womanhood! He needs to know how to call her into womanhood!
In cases where there is no physical father to perform this important task, God should raise a spiritual father to call girls to womanhood.
I decree that every girl that is of age reading this article will have a yearning to be ushered into womanhood without further delay in Jesus name. I declare that the wells of womanhood will begin to flow like a mighty river in Jesus name! I command every girlish spirit to leave the body of grown women in Jesus name! I release a mighty understanding upon each and every woman reading this article in Jesus name!
Every girl needs to be ushered to womanhood when she is of age! The role of ushering a girl to womanhood is uniquely the father’s because of the authority vested in him. There is a longing in every girl to be affirmed by a father as she transitions from girlhood to womanhood. Every girl longs to hear the voice of the father saying, you are no longer a girl but a woman!
A father plays a critical role in the life of every girl. A girl who has grown up with a loving, caring and affirming father is not easy prey to wicked men when she is a grown woman! She will mostly likely find it easy to locate her future husband without hassle!
Girls who have grown up in homes where there was a dysfunctional father, face the risk of attracting men with similar characteristics! A lot of insecurities that spring forth in a grown woman can be traced back to inadequacies in fatherhood. Many grown women do not trust men because of the lack of trust their father created in their hearts! Some women expect to have their way all the time because of the way their father was manipulated by their mother, without him saying a word. Others do not know how to live with a man because their father was forever absent. Others are emotional wrecks because they were physically abused by their fathers! Others have lost touch with their womanhood and have embraced manhood despite the fact that they are women. Others were neglected and did not have the basic things that a young girl needs when she is growing up.
A girl ultimately attracts a boy. A woman, on the other hand, will attract a man! When a girl does not transition into woman although advanced in years; she will ultimately attract a man who might be advanced in years but still operating as a boy!
An old man who chooses to have sex with a girl of 13 years is a boy, not a grown man! Girl child trafficking has escalated because of grown men operating as boys! There is a cry in God’s heart for mature fathers to arise to redeem the upcoming girl generation from the cruel hands of the abusers!
The word “father” means “source”. The role of the father is to guide prophetically, establish apostolically, intentionally role-model. A girl who has grown up with such a father has a very high chance of changing her world and leaving an indelible imprint!
Does a girl become a woman with the apparent onset of puberty? When her breasts enlarge, when she develops underarm and pubic hair, when her body shape becomes curvier, putting on weight especially around the hips, when her body odour begins to change; menstruation commences, she experiences changes in her emotions as a result of a surge in hormones, and she also acquires new sexual feelings. Does this really qualify her to become a woman?
Does she become a woman the moment she is 18 years old possibly leaving her father’s home for university? Is she a woman when she starts her first job and is living alone? Does she become a woman when she has her first sexual experience? Does she become a woman when she gets married? Does she become a woman when she gives birth? Does she become a woman when her breasts begin to sag; puts on weight from child bearing and is now approaching fifty? When does she become a woman?
Why is it that there are “women” who have been through all the above (and more) and still behave like girls?
Womanhood is not just about age and physical features. Womanhood has a lot to do with inner composition. The spirit and soul of a girl must transition to womanhood as her body acquires the features of a woman.
Human life begins when a woman conceives a child in her womb. She carries the child in the womb for nine months then gives birth to an infant, who becomes a toddler, then an adolescent, then a young adult and finally a mature adult!
The spirit and soul of an infant girl need to grow into maturity simultaneously with the body but this is not always the case.
The spirit of man is the entry point of the Holy Spirit! “And it came to pass,
that, when Elisabeth heard the salutation of Mary, the babe leaped in her womb;
and Elisabeth was filled with the Holy Ghost: For, lo, as soon as the voice of thy
salutation sounded in mine ears, the babe leaped in my womb for joy.” (Luke
It is amazing how Jesus and John communicated when they were both were in
their Mothers’ wombs. What occurred was not at a physical level but at a spiritual
level! This supports the fact that there is something that transpires in the dimension
of the spirit, and not just in the physical realm!
I believe the spirit of a girl needs to grow into womanhood with the help of the Holy
Spirit! The call to womanhood has got something to do with the mission of the
Holy Spirit! The Holy Spirit is a Helper in just the same way the woman was
created to be a helpmeet! It is critical that every girl desire to walk intimately with
the Holy Ghost to quickly transition to womanhood!
The Holy Spirit edifies (Acts 9:31), testifies (John 15:26), imparts the
Love of God (Romans 5:3-5), imparts hope (Romans 15:13), teaches (John 14:26), creates
and gives life (Job 33:4), He reproves (John 16:8), He comforts (Acts 9:31), He
helps our infirmities (Rom 8:26), He sanctifies (Romans 15:16), He glorifies Christ
(John 16:14), He searches all things (Romans 11:33), He has power of His own (Romans
15:13), He can be grieved (Ephesians 4:30), He can be vexed (Isaiah 63:10), He can
be resisted (Acts 7:51) and He can be tempted (Acts 5:9).
The call to womanhood is a call to a life of edification like the Holy Spirit edifies
(Acts 9:31). Mature women build! They build spiritually, they build socially, they
build their homes, they build communities and they build their nations! A woman
who has transitioned from girlhood to womanhood knows how to use what she
has, to build. She uses her mouth, her hands, her resources, her knowledge, her
faith in God and all she has, to build! Girls usually pull each other down, they are
jealous and often destroy one other. A woman who relates to others on the basis
of material assets, has some growing up to do. A mature woman considers what
is inside her counterpart, not judging her based on what she has or does not have.
How many grown women are still behaving like girls? “Every wise woman buildeth
her house: but the foolish plucketh it down with her hands” Proverbs 14:1.
Before fully blossoming into the woman God ordained you to be; you will go
through many challenging moments! “And the vessel that he made of clay was
marred in the hand of the potter: so he made it again another vessel, as seemed
good to the potter to make it. “Jeremiah 18:4. God will sometimes take girls
through the furnace of fire to get the woman in them, out of them!
A processed woman has a lot to share! She has a mandate to testify like the Holy
Spirit testifies! Complaining and grumbling is the business of girls! Consider the
beautiful painting that results from the pain you went through! Pity partying and self
worthlessness in a grown woman is a sign of a woman who has not dealt with girl issues!
“The woman then left her water pot, and went her way into the city, and saith to the
men, Come, see a man, which told me all things that ever I did: is not this the
Christ? “ John 4:28-29. You need to leave whatever water pot you are carrying and
begin to testify about Christ! If only married women testified more about the
positive qualities they saw in their husbands and children!
Womanhood has a lot to do with imparting love just like the Holy Spirit imparts
the love of God! (Romans 5:3-5). Girls are looking for love but a mature woman
imparts love! The call to womanhood is a call to selflessness! It is not all about the
Eros love! This, however, does not mean mature women are not erotic! To the
contrary, they know how to package their sexuality in a mature more satisfying
way than girls! Girls on the other hand have a tendency to use their sexuality as a
weapon or a tool!
A girl who has transitioned into womanhood will pour her love to people
who are not able to reciprocate. Girls cannot handle the suffering of others. They
want to run away and have nothing to give. This is not the case with a mature
woman. She pours love like a river to the disabled, the terminally ill and her
compassion is deep and unfathomable. Her world does not revolve around just
herself! I believe that a mature woman has the capacity to face storms head on!
Many girls have superficial dreams and live in a cosmetic world.
Womanhood imparts hope (Romans 15:13). A community or family with Godly
mature women are a wealthy community. Mature women inspire hope! They are
pillars in their homes, communities and nations! Look at the characteristics of
such women in Proverbs 31:10-31. They are a beacon of light in darkness, an anchor in
perilous times and a refuge during dangerous times!
A mature woman is a teacher (John 14:26). “The aged women likewise, that they
be in behavior as becometh holiness, not false accusers, not given to much wine,
teachers of good things; That they may teach the young women to be sober, to
love their husbands, to love their children, To be discreet, chaste, keepers at
home, good, obedient to their own husbands, that the Word of God be not
blasphemed. (Titus 2:3-5) Abigail can teach women many lessons! What can you
draw from the following experience? “Now the name of the man was Nabal; and
the name of his wife Abigail: and she was a woman of good understanding, and
of a beautiful countenance: but the man was churlish and evil in his doings; and
he was of the house of Caleb. But one of the young men told Abigail, Nabal's wife,
saying, Behold, David sent messengers out of the wilderness to salute our master;
and he railed on them. But the men were very good unto us, and we were not
hurt, neither missed we anything, as long as we were conversant with them,
when we were in the fields: They were a wall unto us both by night and day, all
the while we were with them keeping the sheep. Now therefore know and
consider what thou wilt do; for evil is determined against our master, and against
all his household: for he is such a son of Belial, that a man cannot speak to him.
Then Abigail made haste, and took two hundred loaves, and two bottles of wine,
and five sheep ready dressed, and five measures of parched corn, and an hundred
clusters of raisins, and two hundred cakes of figs, and laid them on asses.
And she said unto her servants, Go on before me; behold, I come after you. But she told not her husband Nabal. And it was so, as she rode on the ass, that she came down by the covert of the hill, and, behold, David and his men came down against her; and she met them. Now David had said, Surely in vain have I kept all that this fellow hath in the wilderness, so that nothing was missed of all that pertained unto him: and he hath requited me evil for good.
So and more also do God unto the enemies of David, if I leave of all that pertain to him by the morning light any that pisseth against the wall. And when Abigail saw David, she hasted, and lighted off the ass, and fell before David on her face, and bowed herself to the ground, And fell at his feet, and said, Upon me, my lord, upon me let this iniquity be: and let thine handmaid, I pray thee, speak in thine audience, and hear the words of thine handmaid. Let not my lord, I pray thee, regard this man of Belial, even Nabal: for as his name is, so is he; Nabal is his name, and folly is with him: but I thine handmaid saw not the young men of my lord, whom thou didst send. Now therefore, my lord, as the LORD liveth, and as thy soul liveth, seeing the LORD hath withholden thee from coming to shed blood, and from avenging thyself with thine own hand, now let thine enemies, and they that seek evil to my lord, be as Nabal. And now this blessing which thine handmaid hath brought unto my lord, let it even be given unto the young men that follow my lord. I pray thee, forgive the trespass of thine handmaid: for the LORD will certainly make my lord a sure house; because my lord fighteth the battles of the LORD, and evil hath not been found in thee all thy days. Yet a man is risen to pursue thee, and to seek thy soul: but the soul of my lord shall be bound in the bundle of life with the LORD thy God; and the souls of thine enemies, them shall he sling out, as out of the middle of a sling. And it shall come to pass, when the LORD shall have done to my lord according to all the good that he hath spoken concerning thee, and shall have appointed thee ruler over Israel; That this shall be no grief unto thee, nor offence of heart unto my lord, either that thou hast shed blood causeless, or that my lord hath avenged himself: but when the LORD shall have dealt well with my lord, then remember thine handmaid. And David said to Abigail, Blessed be the LORD God of Israel, which sent thee this day to meet me:” 1 Samuel 25:15-32
Apart from the womb which a physically mature woman has; she is designed to
have other wombs spiritually and mentally! (Job 33:4). Women are not only designed
to give birth physically. In fact, the lowest form of fruitfulness according to Dr. Mensa Otabil,
is the bearing of children! A woman can be fruitful in many other ways apart from physical
I decree that God will bring you to maturity and that all your wombs will be fertile
in Jesus name. That whatever is dropped into your spirit will grow and manifest in Jesus name!
I decree that you shall also conceive in your soul in Jesus name!
A tragedy indeed, when a girl conceives at 13 years but a great blessing when
a married woman conceives! This is because a mature married woman ought to
have the capacity to take care of a baby! I decree that you will have ability to take
care of what you conceive in your spirit and soul in Jesus name. I also decree
“grace” upon all the girls who had children when they were not ready. I call you
into Godly womanhood in Jesus name!
A mature woman is not afraid to rebuke or to be reproved, herself. (John 16:8).
Transitioning into womanhood from girlhood means you are not afraid to
confront and correct with love! Inability to do this means that the transition has
not taken place! A woman who takes offense when she is corrected is still a girl in
the making! A mature woman has dealt with all the emotional baggage she
accumulated when she was a girl!
You cannot be uncaring and still claim to be a mature woman. Womanhood has a
lot to do with comforting others (Acts 9:31). There is a lot of pain and grief in the
world! We need women who bring comfort! I do not know what happens to some
women when they rise to high echelons of power! ! Some become brutal, unfeeling and
uncaring! “Comfort ye, comfort ye my people, saith your God”. Isaiah 40:1
The women that ministered to Jesus on his earthly ministry have a lot to
teach us! “And certain women, which had been healed of evil spirits and
infirmities, Mary called Magdalene, out of whom went seven devils, And
Joanna the wife of Chuza Herod's steward, and Susanna, and many others, which
ministered unto him of their substance.” Luke 8:2-3.
Girls need to learn not to spend all their money on themselves, on clothes
and shoes etc! This will help them when they transition to womanhood! Does your giving
reflect maturity? Don’t wait until you are rich and famous before you start giving to the
orphans, supporting a missionary, feeding the hungry etc! This should be part of your life over
and above giving your first fruits, tithes and offering!
A mature woman has a mandate to help the infirmity of others (Rom 8:26). Women that have
to take care of a terminally ill people have no time to be girlish! These calls for great
patience, endurance and sacrifice! This is usually lacking in most girls!
Like the Holy Spirit, a mature woman sanctifies (Romans 15:16). Sanctification has got to do
with setting apart, devotion and consecration. Mary the Mother of Jesus was set apart to
conceive and give birth to the Messiah. Because Jesus was not an ordinary child, she needed to
raise Him in a consecrated manner. She needed an Elizabeth. How can a woman set things
apart when she herself is not set apart? A mature woman models and teaches consecration.
Lemuel’s mother in Proverbs 31:1-10 is guiding her son into the way of consecration. We need
such mature women to raise the Nazirites of today. A girl will find it hard to be devoted and set
apart, but a woman will not struggle. She will be devoted. She will not treat consecrated
people, tithes, the Word of God and other sacred things with contempt. Read Daniel 5:23-26.
Sex too, is holy!
The Holy Spirit glorifies Christ (John 16:14) and not Himself! Girls are always looking for ways to
be glorified but a mature woman glorifies others. She does not blow her trumpet all the time.
She is not upset when she is not glorified for she knows her own value. She is secure. She is not
afraid to compliment other women. There are women who are intimidated when another
woman shows up who is more beautiful, more intelligent or more magnetic! They cannot deal.
Just the same way the Holy Spirit searches all things, a mature woman searches all things
(Romans 11:33). Some men are experts on preying and playing on girls! Don’t be blinded
by what you see, dig deeper. Don’t be deceived by what you hear, search more! A mature
woman will google, window shop or inquire from God before making any major decision. Girls
act first and face the consequences later!
A woman has power of her own. She might not be as visible as her husband, if she is married,
but she has power of her own. It is just like the Holy Ghost, He has power of His own (Romans
15:13). I believe a mature woman is a powerhouse. She does not flaunt it but is
Does this mean that a mature woman does not grieve, is not vexed, cannot be resisted or
tempted? Not at all! The Holy Spirit too can be grieved (Ephesians 4:30), He can be vexed
(Isaiah 63:10), He can be resisted (Acts 7:51) and He can be tempted (Acts 5:9). He however
does not grieve for 20 years like some women (or girls). Neither is He vexed forever. He does
not give up because He was resisted! So should it be, with a mature woman.
May the woman in you arise despite having gone through challenges! Ruth arose from grief
and found a Boaz! For how long are you going to dwell on the matter? Let go and let God! It
does not matter what you have gone through, there is hope for you, girl!
I can go on comparing the attributes of the Holy Spirit to the call to womanhood.
It is just amazing. The tall and short of it is that a girl who walks in the Spirit is
likely to transition to womanhood quicker that the one who is flesh-oriented!
I decree that you will walk in the Spirit in Jesus name! I decree that the Holy Spirit
will usher you to unadulterated and unabridged womanhood in Jesus name! I cast
to the bottomless pit the spirit of feminism in Jesus name!
The counterfeit womanhood propagated by the Women’s Liberation Movement, is not new in
The Bible! It started with Eve and continued with Jezebel and Delilah. Unfortunately
every girl is born with the Eve, Jezebel and Delilah spirit because of the fallen
nature of humanity. We need to cast these spirits out, right from the onset when the infant is
born. We have to pray for the fullness of the Spirit right from birth. Are we raising
our girls for God or for the world?
An infant spirit is as demanding as physical infant! Women who have still have an
infant spirit usually drains even spiritual leaders! Those that are emotional infants
are forever crying for help even on trivial matters! They have not yet reached maturity!
Those that are spiritual toddlers have to be motivated for them to function spiritually! Do not expect toddlers to share or take turns. Learning to share will come later. Provide spaces where toddlers can spend time alone. How many grown women still have tantrums like toddlers?
I release the mantle of womanhood upon your life in Jesus name! I decree that the wells of womanhood within you will begin to manifest in Jesus name! I decree that you will be emotionally, spiritually and maritally mature in Jesus name!
Please answer the following questions to evaluate yourself. Look deeply into your heart and be honest. Do you feel the need to be called into womanhood? What are the characteristics that distinguish a girl from a mature woman apart from physical features? What need was the first woman created to meet? What need were you created to meet? What are the wells of womanhood within you? Are there similar needs for both the girl and the woman? What are some of the worst things that women have gone through? Give examples of women that turned their obstacles into stepping stones? What are some of the disciplines women need to cultivate? What is haunting you from your girlhood? Is it an error that can be corrected or confessed? Are you mature enough to handle emotional, sexual, financial, social pressures? If you are married to a man like Nabal, the husband of Abigail, what would you do? Describe emotional maturity? How does transition into womanhood affect the quality of marriage and parenting? Is there any significance when a father calls you into womanhood or can you say to yourself that you are a woman? On a scale of 1-10, how woman are you?
Please communicate with me if you have never been called into womanhood by your physical or spiritual father. I would like to fulfill that which God laid in my heart regarding this matter.
May the Lord bless you as you discover your purpose as a woman!

CALLING FORTH GIRLS TO WOMANHOOD
