The name Rachelle means ‘a lamb’. A person defined as a lamb is considered to be sweet, kind and gentle and even naive at times. Maybe Rachelle is all that. However one can’t judge a book by its cover. Rachelle has learned a few things in her walk with the Lord. Our Lord was described as being meek and mild. Moses was the meekest man in the world when he was alive and look what God did with him.
Rachelle may be the absolute sweetest person you will ever meet. The Lord has blessed her with a meek spirit which does not always mean that she is necessarily quiet and shy. Like Pres. Roosevelt once said, ‘speak softly and carry a big stick’. Rachelle has learned through her walk with the Lord that you can catch more flies with honey than you can with vinagar. And she has also learned that those annoying flies can be dealt with quickly and easily if you have the right equipment .
Rachelle may not be the quiet and reserved person previously described. She may be at least outwardly the complete opposite . But that is another book cover which is held up for the world to see. Her spirit man is still the one who has to approach the All Mighty God in the Holy of Holies. And that is not a light or easy thing to do. When she appears before her Master and Savior Rachelle is as quiet and meek as a lamb, After all, He left the ninety and nine to come find her. She was worth it to Him. This is what makes Rachelle ‘s spirit man so humble, regardless of the front she let’s others see.
The scriptures says to be strong in the Lord and there is only one way to accomplish this . Through the study of His Word and your relationship with Him. Rachelle because her very nature is to be quiet and reserved has been drawn to an intimate closeness with Jesus. She is dependent on His strength to help her make it through life in general. Others who get to know the real Rachelle find that she really is a quiet source of strength and comfort.
1 Corinthians 16:13 Be on the alert. Stand firm in the faith. Be men of courage. Be strong.
