I welcome you to this wonderful time in God’s presence. All through this month, I will be looking at the title “Making a Difference.” Today, I will be sharing with you a very vital topic titled “The Woman as God’s last born.”
It is very important that, as a woman, you know the purpose for which you were created. You must understand that you are created to make a difference in your world. From Genesis 2, you will discover that after God created the woman, the work of creation stopped because God was satisfied. He saw His mission as accomplished and knew that if the woman would perform her role as God’s last born, the world would become a different place.
You will recall that the woman at creation was the last to be created. All the same, she was not an after-thought. God created her last for specific reasons and purposes. We all know that, naturally, the last born of a family enjoys more than the others. That is exactly what God has done with you as a woman. As God’s last born, He has prepared the best for you. You will enjoy it!
Also, as a woman, you are the crown of God’s creation. For instance, if a king wants to put on his crown, he has to be completely dressed. His clothes, shoes and everything must be worn; the last thing that the king will put on is the crown. God has created you as His last born and as such you must make a difference. You will not be a misfit!
As you will recall, your heavenly Father is the King of kings and as His daughter, when you were born-again, you became a princess. Every woman that is born-again is a princess and among other things, you are meant for honour. You will not miss the honour that is due to you in Jesus’ name!
If you know that you are a princess, there will be differences between you and the people of the world. Your life and character will reflect Christ. If you see a woman that dresses carelessly, showing her total nakedness, she doesn’t know the daughter of whom she is. If she knows, she will take proper care of her body as the temple of the Living God. A woman that messes herself up with men, sleeping with any man she sees on the street, is taking away the honour that God has for her in marriage. Every honour that is due to you, from the beginning of creation, will not elude you in Jesus’ name!
Biblical examples of women that made positive difference in their days
Sarah: In the Old Testament there is a woman known as Sarah. She is the wife of Abraham. Sarah was a woman of honour. The Word of God says: Through faith also Sara herself received strength to conceive seed, and was delivered of a child when she was past age, because she judged him faithful who had promised (Hebrews 11:11). God honoured her by giving her strength to bear a child, even though she has passed the age of child-bearing. God will honour you in Jesus’ name!
Hannah: Hannah was a woman of prayer (1 Samuel 1). Rather than going from house to house, gossiping all about, Hannah went to the house of God, prayed and her story was changed.
Elizabeth: Elizabeth was the mother of John the Baptist. She was a woman of great character, barren, but did not stop serving God. She refused to give up and at the right time God visited her (Luke 1).
Priscilla: Her husband’s name was Aquila. The two of them were co-labourers in the gospel (Acts 18). She worked with the apostles and in several places in the New Testament, we see Paul mentioning her name, “Great Priscilla and Aquila my co-labourers in the kingdom”. She was a worker in the house of God and at the end of it, made a difference.
Lydia: She was a business woman who the Bible calls a seller of purple (Acts 16). She made the difference with her business in her generation. God opened her heart, she received the Word and ministered to the Apostles. The same way, God is looking for more Lydias in the Church today. May you be one of them!
Biblical examples of women that made negative difference in their days
Job’s wife: The Bible simply called her Job’s wife because her name was not mentioned. Rather than being a help to her husband, when the man was undergoing some challenges, she was a minus. She looked at her husband in the face and said, “Curse God and die! What are you living for?” The spirit of the wife of Job will not find expression in your life in Jesus’ name!
Potiphar’s Wife: The Bible calls her Potiphar’s wife; we are not told her name. She had the spirit of Jezebel and her problem was sex. She was comfortable and all that she needed was available. However, she descended so low as to be seducing her house boy. She did not know that the beauty in Joseph’s life was the beauty of the inner man. Thank God that Joseph was a man that had the fear of God. You will not end up like Potiphar’s wife! Since you are not married why are you having sex with men? Don’t you know that you are destroying your honour with your hands? There are still some married women like Potiphar’s wife, who leave their husbands at home and start running after small boys. They are women without dignity.
If you need God to make a difference in your life, then you must surrender your life to Christ. Please, say this prayer and be born-again: Dear Lord Jesus Christ, I come to You today. I am a sinner. Forgive me my sins and cleanse me with Your Blood. Deliver me from sin and satan to serve the living God. I accept You as my Lord and personal Saviour. Make me a child of God today. Thank You for accepting me into Your Kingdom.”
Congratulations, you are now born-again! I believe that you will begin to experience the reality of the price that Jesus paid for your sins at Calvary.
