REAL WOMEN WEAR HONOR – A Word by Jo Ellen Stevens


1 Peter 2:17 “Honor all people. Love the brotherhood. Fear God. Honor the king.”

There is a story in the Bible about two women Vashti and Esther, who both had the opportunity to be the Queen of the Persian Empire and one dishonored the King by refusing to show up at His banquet and the other learned to honor the King even though he was a heathen King and became Queen instead of Vashti. This in-turn gave Esther the opportunity to save her people the Jews alive so that some day the Messiah of the world would come through them.


Dishonor is about one of the ugliest things I have ever seen. It is ugly on men, women and children and truly it is most ugly on people in authority. To me, it is a sign of immaturity and rebellion! Have you ever seen people who dishonor others in front of others! It is quite embarrassing to those observing! Like watching a child dishonoring their parents or a woman dishonoring her husband or visa versa OR MAYBE YOUR COUNTRY’S CITIZENS DISHONORING THEIR KING OR PRESIDENT! It just makes you cringe, if there is any honor in you! I believe heaven’s atmosphere will be honor toward God and honor toward one another.


You might say…How do I do that when I have nothing to honor them for? I hear the Lord saying, “Whatever is good, lovely, and a good report….Think on these things!” Then point those good things out to that person! You will soon see them begin to change!” It is time to grow up and give Honor to all that you see! Stop thinking and saying all of the negative and speak words of encouragement and then….. BE CLOTHED IN HONOR!!

Proverbs 31:25-26
“Strength and honor are her clothing;
She shall rejoice in time to come.
She opens her mouth with wisdom,
And on her tongue is the law of kindness”


Women, if you truly want someone to cherish and respect you. if you want them to Honor you, then honor them as a seed! I believe you will get more what you want back like that than dishonoring them! I believe, that we Christian women are living in a day that we must show the world what a true woman of God is to look like and truly she is clothed in Honor! Let’s not join those who are living in dishonor toward their husbands, children, government, and churches. Let’s join together and truly be like Esther on this time of Purim. Let’s us win America by honoring and respecting them, one person at a time! Let’s honor all of those which we love because, if we don’t…nobody else will. If we do not honor our President right now, we are cutting off our nose to spite our face! We have to live here and if we want others to honor America we have to also! You are called to honor for such a time as this!”
Arise Shine!

Hello Spirit Fuel Readers. I wanted tell you a story about something that happened to me a few years ago in a Summer not unlike many Summers that My husband and I had for many years of learning God’s provision. This particular Summer it had been very hot and humid and truly it seemed like one of the leanest Summers that we had in a long time.


We were Pastoring a small church at the time and we both had been working at the school for many years and each Summer we had no jobs and had to trust God for the provision for how we were going to live through that few month period. This summer was no different. At the end of the year I would always start getting this feeling of almost panic wondering how we were going to make it that Summer. This particular Summer when that panic hit me, God said “ I want you to take the money that you have in your purse and send it to a particular ministry. I was like “but God that is all that I have and it may have to last….”


Being Obedient, I went on-line and sent the money that He told me to. A few weeks later, I was outside in what seemed like the hottest day of the year. There was not a breeze to be felt, when suddenly, this little cool breeze came across me and I said out loud.,“THANK YOU GOD FOR THAT BREEZE!” He spoke to me that day as I said that and said. “I AM GOING TO REFRESH YOU ON A BREEZE DAUGHTER.” I thought, “what could this mean? I got up from there and went into the house that day and no sooner did I get in there until the phone rang. It was a member of our church and the woman on the other end said “my husband and I want to buy you a new car! We were looking at a couple of them and saw a particular one and it was called a “PLYMOUTH BREEZE!” That night we went to get the BRAND NEW RED BREEZE and we drove around and around that town in it, feeling like millionaires. The Lord at one point told me to look at the new car next to me and said, “see that car” and I said, “yes Lord!” he said, “the blessing of the Lord it makes rich and he adds no sorrow with it!” I said, “What do you mean Lord?” He said. Well, you have a new beautiful car and so do they but, they have a payment book and you do not!"  

You see, what it’s all about is obedience! Obedience and thanking God for the small things like the little breeze that came over me that day and obedience even in the small things. I didn’t think my small offering that day would do anything, but in my obedience we reaped a great harvest and refreshing!” Not only that, God let me know that year that he saw and he heard my plight! This is why when God says sow a seed, he has bigger plans for it than you can imagine or think. My friends, obedience is key! I want to encourage you, that if you are reading this and feel led to sow a seed into this ministry, that God is faithful to refresh you and show himself strong in your time of need! Not only that, He always gives back, pressed down, shaken together and running over!” He wants to show you His faithfulness in your life and wants you to know that you know that it came from Him!

Arise Shine! Jo Ellen Stevens
