The Gift of a Godly Woman


After the Lord created Adam, the first man, Genesis 2:18 (NLT) tells us, “Then the LORD God said, “It is not good for the man to be alone. I will make a helper who is just right for him.”” As believers, we know that the Word of God is the Will of God. He tells us His Will in His written Word. Many people are puzzled and complain that they do not know God’s Will for their lives. Well, He hasn’t kept it a secret. If the Creator of the entire universe and everything in it has said that it isn’t good for man to be alone, we have no other choice but to deduce that, according to God’s plan and purpose, a lonely man isn’t the best-case scenario.

Genesis 2:21-22 tells us that God caused Adam to fall into a deep sleep, and God made woman from one of Adam’s ribs. He then brought her to Adam. Sometimes we forget who God is, and we think that He did all of this on the spur of the moment. That’s not how Heavenly Father operates. Man and woman was always God’s plan for creation. This is one of the reasons it is so important that as men, we take time to appreciate women and the gift they represent to our lives and families. Without them, life could not continue.

Genesis 3:20(NLT) says, “Then the man—Adam—named his wife Eve, because she would be the mother of all who live.” Adam was excited to have a companion, and he gave her the name that symbolized his gratitude for who God had made her. She was called Eve, the mother of all who live, because God blessed her to be the carrier of life. This tells us that women are instrumental to the Plan and Will of God. In Matthew 5:14, Jesus Christ referred to us, the body of Christ, as the light of the world. Women carry the lights of the world for 9 months and birth God’s beacons of love. They help the world to be continually salted and flavored with God’s love.

Those of us that know a little bit about the bible are aware that Sister Eve was led into temptation and took Brother Adam with her. Adam could have, and should have refused, but they were both disobedient to God and allowed sin to enter the picture. When it did, they lost the relationship and communion they once had with Heavenly Father. They could no longer live in the Garden of Eden, and they were transferred out of God’s territory of holiness into the devil’s territory of darkness.

Jesus Christ told us a few things about the ruler of this territory of darkness in John 10:10. The ruler of darkness kills, steals, and destroys.  Chaos, confusion, fear, and doubt are also a part of the enemy’s territory. Adam and Eve were the first human beings to inhabit the devil’s territory of darkness. When they entered it, everything that they owned was transferred to the enemy as well. So their relationship was no longer one of harmony, mutual respect, and equal standing with each other. Because of sin, the consequences of disharmony entered their relationship, and would continue to plague generations after them. God said to Eve in Genesis 3:16 (NLT), “I will sharpen the pain of your pregnancy, and in pain you will give birth. And you will desire to control your husband, but he will rule over you.”  For every action, there is a reaction. There is a consequence for everything that we do, good or bad. So this harsh reality that Adam and Eve faced after they sinned was not punishment, it was the consequence of sin action.

All kinds of terrible things entered the hearts and minds of people because of sin. We needed to be rescued, so that we would have a way to get back on track with God’s plan for us, as well as His plan for the earth. Romans 5:10 (NLT) tells us, “For since our friendship with God was restored by the death of his Son while we were still his enemies, we will certainly be saved through the life of his Son.”  Colossians 1:13 (NLT) says, “For he has rescued us from the kingdom of darkness and transferred us into the Kingdom of his dear Son.” Because of Jesus Christ, broken relationships are restored, and disharmony is turned into peace. The love of God has entered our lives, and we now have marriages and relationships that can be blessed with unity, peace and love, but our appreciation and commitment to God’s plan can never be ignored.

Men and women come to the table with different strengths and weaknesses. As men, we need to recognize that God has standards of conduct and living for us. We should make His standard our top priority, and we should desire a relationship with a woman that does the same thing.  It’s not based on self-indulgence or the gratification of the flesh. It should be based on our devotion to the example of Christ and our appreciation of God’s plan to continue life. He’s blessed us to have unity and love in our families, and He will solidify it through the gift of a Godly woman.
