The War on Women
There is a war on women, but it’s not what you think it is. The Bible says that all wars start in the heart and it is the heart that must be guarded, protected, defended. The enemy, however, has already breeched the walls, and like the snake in the garden is using his venom of lies and seduction to rob women of their royal place. Not every woman marries, but by nature the woman is a help-meet. As midwife she was there to catch generation after generation at childbirth. In sympathy, she was there to lay a flower on your grave. She was there with a red cross on her cap binding up the wounds of battle. She was there at a million wells drawing water for the thirsty, as well as stoking a million fires in the hearth. She was the keeper of the home and that hand that rocked the cradle, ruled the world. This, the fairer sex was made by God: a Caregiver.
By nature she was gentle, by nurture she was genteel. In her element, she was a giver. Long into the night, she was the last to turn in and turn out the light. She was the first to rise and stir in the kitchen to start the new day. She was made soft to lessen the hardness of life. She was made fair to fill the air with beauty and grace. This help-meet was made by God and so it is odd when this unique and special god-like creature casts away her birthright.
In God’s grand design she was made a help “fit” for the Master’s use. Jesus said the greatest among you is a servant. Only faith can see the sainthood in service and the wonderful role of the woman. Many have been all this and more, in science, in business and in the betterment of all mankind. God’s calling is a high calling. The devil (which means liar) started all this confusion when he subtilely asked “Has God said…..?” Those who are joining the “End Binary” movement are at war with their own womanhood ( or manhood) and will never discover the Peace of God until they make peace with God. Mary, the mother of Jesus said, “Behold the handmaiden of the Lord. Be it unto me as according to thy word.” (Luke 1:38). The story of the Prodigal today is the Prodigal Daughter. We pray for her, as she has left for the far country, looking for happiness in all the wrong places. We pray she might come to herself before it is too late and come home. Godliness with contentment is great gain. -id
