Happy New Year! We give God praise for the year 2016, but then, we give Him all the glory for another opportunity to witness the year 2017, where God is making our case different. Thank God for the gift of life. He that has made it possible for you to see the New Year will certainly do something great with you and your family this year in Jesus’ name. To start this New Year, I will be unveiling to you what I titled, Womanhood, A Divine Assignment.
Womanhood is the period in a female’s life, after she has transitioned through childhood and adolescence. God is a God of purpose and this is why there are reasons for everything He created. However, His purposes are revealed to us in His Word. At creation, God did not waste time creating any worthless thing. He was judicious. Thus, WOMAN, which was created by God, is not worthless; she was intended to fulfil certain functions (Proverbs 31:10-31).
God’s Word says: And the Lord God said, It is not good for the man should be alone; I will make him an help meet for him (Genesis 2:18). That help meet, we all know, was a woman. It is evident that the primary purpose for which a woman is created is for a divine assignment.
Before Eve was created, certain responsibilities had been committed to Adam. It was his duty to dress and keep the garden (Genesis 2:15). But God saw that he needed help to fulfil these responsibilities. So, a woman was created, thereby making womanhood a divine assignment.
After making the woman, God presented her to the man for government (Genesis 2:22). The woman has a primary responsibility of submitting to the leadership of the man, as ordained by God from creation.
Sometime ago, when my health was under attack, according to my husband, he went apart to inquire of the Lord on what to do. He said that as he searched the Scriptures, he discovered from Ephesians 5:23 that he is the saviour of my body, the same way Christ is of the Church. He said he concluded, therefore, that I did not require my faith to be healed and he could exercise his God-given authority over me, as the head of our home.
He returned home and learnt that I was in the hospital. Without much ado, he said he had his bath, drove down to the hospital and ordered the doctor to remove all the medical gadgets that were on my head, and discharge me. Amidst protests from the doctor, he took me home. The doctor came to our home later in the day to visit his patient, only to be told that I had gone to the hair salon! I was no longer a patient! That was the end of the bout with sickness.
This testimony goes to say, I discovered my divine assignment as a woman to her husband, I followed the precepts, and it was turned to me for a testimony. What if I chose to struggle with him by proving to him that I needed the care that would be given in the hospital for my health recovery, perhaps I would have been dead by now. God forbid!
Womanhood is a divine assignment not only to husbands as regards the testimony above, it is also a divine assignment to your children, your home, and to the world at large.
To successfully deliver this divine assignment as the case may be, God’s wisdom is the only requirement. You do not need to get yourself involved in any ungodly women organisation for whatever reason, as many women organisations today have negatively affected women in carrying out their role in the society. The only principal material needed is God’s wisdom.
Until you are born again, you cannot operate in the wisdom of God for an effective role as a woman. You get born again by confessing your sins and accepting Jesus as your Lord and Saviour. If you are set for this, please say this prayer: “Dear Lord Jesus, I come to You today as a sinner. Forgive me of my sins. I believe You died and rose on the third day for my sins. I accept You as my Lord and 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. All-round rest and peace are guaranteed you in Jesus’ Name!
