Women/Wives, how to serve with honor in a difficult situation
Serving with honor in your position of authority.
Many women find themselves serving a position, identifiable as the responsibility of a husband or father. If the husband/father is available but for some reason incapable or unable to fulfill their role or responsibility for the position, the women often end up bearing the burden of the position. This can bring about many feelings, sometimes these feeling can be negative in nature due to the circumstances of the situation and the woman’s understanding or lack thereof in the position that she is serving.
[The aim for this teaching is to assist women in better understanding their position of authority, as well as give them the confidence to serve as God has graced them and to also guard themselves from the many pitfalls that often comes as a result of serving the responsibilities of a position without understanding the full authority that the position grants.]
I pray that as we move forward, that our heart is open to hear, understand and receive the revelation that God has given for us, to walk in the fullness of what He intends in order for us to prosper as women and to succeed in the challenges ahead.
The Significance of Our Identity.
One of the greatest revelation in understanding our identity as a woman is knowing that the vision of God is fulfilled in mankind when we understand the power of our position and being obedient to it.
The most significant part of our identity is wrapped up in the reason we were created as women, to serve as a help to man in fulfilling the vision of God in mankind. ( King James Version, Genesis 2:18).
Genesis 2:18, 21-24 King James Version (KJV)
18 And the Lord God said, It is not good that the man should be alone; I will make him an help meet for him.21 And the Lord God caused a deep sleep to fall upon Adam, and he slept: and he took one of his ribs, and closed up the flesh instead thereof;22 And the rib, which the Lord God had taken from man, made he a woman, and brought her unto the man.23 And Adam said, This is now bone of my bones, and flesh of my flesh: she shall be called Woman, because she was taken out of Man.24 Therefore shall a man leave his father and his mother, and shall cleave unto his wife: and they shall be one flesh.
The fruitfulness of man and mankind is in the woman submitting to her position.
Genesis 1:27-28 King James Version (KJV)
27 So God created man in his own image, in the image of God created he him; male and female created he them.28 And God blessed them, and God said unto them, Be fruitful, and multiply, and replenish the earth, and subdue it: and have dominion over the fish of the sea, and over the fowl of the air, and over every living thing that moveth upon the earth.
[When we refuse to submit to our position, we are refusing to submit to the will of God and to serve as God intends; by this we create an avenue for the enemy to come in and destroy what God intends to succeed.]
