God Said to Woman

God said to woman

When I created the heavens and the earth, I spoke them into being. When I created man, I formed him and breathed life into his nostrils. But you woman, I fashioned after I breathed the breath of life into man because your nostrils are too delicate. I allowed a deep sleep to come over him so I could patiently and perfectly fashion you.

Man was put to sleep so that he could not interfere with the creativity. From one bone I fashioned you. I chose the bone that protects his heart and his lungs and supports him, as you are meant to do. Around this one bone I shaped you. I modeled you.

I created you perfectly and beautifully. Your characteristics are as the rib, strong yet delicate and fragile. You provide protection for the most delicate organ in man, his heart. His heart is the center of his being; his lungs hold the breath of life. The rib cage will allow itself to be broken before it will allow damage to the heart. Support the man as the rib cage supports the body.

You were not taken from his feet, to be under him, nor were you taken from his head, to be above him. You were taken from his side, to stand beside him and be held close to his side. You are My perfect angel. You are My beautiful little girl. You have grown to be a splendid woman of excellence, and My eyes fill when I see the virtues in your heart. Your eyes – don’t change them. Your lips – how lovely when they part in prayer. Your nose, so perfect in form, your hands so gentle in touch. I’ve caressed your face in your deepest sleep; I’ve held your heart close to mine.

Of all that lives and breathes, you are the most like Me. Adam walked with Me in the cool of the day and yet he was lonely. He could not see Me or touch Me. He could only feel Me. So everything I wanted Adam to share and experience with Me, I fashioned in you: My holiness, My strength, My purity, My love, My protection and support. You are special because you are the extension of Me. Man represents My image, woman My emotions. Together you represent the totality of God.

So man – treat woman well. Love her, respect her, for she is fragile. In hurting her, you hurt Me. What you do to her, you do to Me. In crushing her, you only damage your own heart, the heart of your Father, and the heart of her Father. Woman, support man. In humility, show him the power of emotion I have given you. In gentle quietness show your strength. In love, show him that you are the rib that protects his inner self.

Woman of Faith (Esther)

Woman of Faith 2

My dear readers, this evening I want to try post a devotional based on woman figure in the Bible .As we know there are so many great and beautiful woman figures in the bible. This idea came from my mother. Few days ago she said that it would be good if I post an article blog based on woman figure in the Bible. There are so many great lesson that we can get from them. And then she gave a title “Woman of Faith” to this post. I think this is a good idea and now I realizing my mother’s idea.

Esther. She is the first figure that I chose for this first post.

“Go, gather together all the Jews who are in Susa, and fast for me. Do not eat or drink for three days, night or day. I and my attendants will fast as you do. When this is done, I will go to the king, even though it is against the law. And if I perish, I perish.” (Esther 4:16)

The life of Esther is one of the most extraordinary in the entire Bible. A true-to-riches story, she was plucked out of obscurity, chosen to be queen, and then faced with one of the most difficult choices any ruler ever had to make. Esther was a Jewish, one of God’s chosen people, but her husband the king did not know it. With the king’s consent, a decree had gone out over all the land that every Jews was to be killed.

Esther was faced with a choice: She could either stand up for her and the God of her people, or save her own skin by remaining incognito. To stand up meant, not only the danger of revealing her ethnic identity, but also approaching the king unbidden… An offense punishable by death. But Esther made her choice decisively: “If I perish, I perish.”

My dear reader, are we ready to throw ourselves into the cause of God’s kingdom with that same abandon, with a willingness to do whatever it takes no matter what the personal cost? Although the name of God is nowhere mentioned in this book, the fingerprints of God are all over it. It was, of course, God who allowed Esther to become a queen at just the right time and who gave her favor in the sight of the king, empowering her to save His people.

Esther had to make her decision by faith, not knowing what the outcome would be. And there is a trail of martyrs through the centuries that attest to the fact that God does not always deliver from death those who stand in his name. But, like Esther, we must be willing to lay down our pride, and our concern for self-preservation, and be willing to serve our Lord no matter what the cost. Amen
