Woman of the Lord

Updated: Oct 27, 2023



Welcome, once again, to my table. I invite you to take a break from all that is going on and let’s talk about the goodness of our God. Let’s talk about where we are in the vast details of His creation.


Have you ever considered details that are so finite, like a single bee pollinating? The bee works to produce honey, which would be for pleasure and sustenance of humanity. Think about the magnitude of such a fine detail in the circle of the earth that our Creator sits above. Isaiah 40:21-22.


Consider, also, our role as women in the grand scheme of creation. We weren’t created just to be a companion for man. We were chosen, honored and blessed to compliment both man and God’s marvelous creation. Now, before you jump to any negative thoughts on that last statement, think of it from another perspective.


There is a special place in God’s own heart for a woman. Here are just a few examples.


God chose Sara, the wife of Abraham, to be the mother of the Jewish nation. That may not be quite so notable, except that she was an elderly barren woman until, in God’s perfect timing, she bore the miracle son that started it all.


God chose Rahab, a woman of the Canaanites, hated by the people of Israel, to hide the men who came to spy out the land. This woman, from a hated community, of low reputation, lied to officials in order to protect the spies. Seems an unlikely character to impact the very future of God’s people, but she did.


He chose Mary, a humble yet faithful woman, to carry and deliver His own Son, our Savior Jesus Christ. The Son sent to save our souls. Against many odds, Mary realized the importance of the role she was chosen to play in God’s great plan to redeem humanity and responded in complete obedience. Luke 1:45

Our God, who speaks things into existence, could have come and changed things in an instant with just a Word. But He chose a woman. I won’t discount the significance of the chosen women described here or the many more women God chose to make an indelible mark on the history of God’s people, but let’s chat just a little more about Mary, the mother of Jesus.


In choosing Mary, God designed Jesus’s lineage, the house of David, from women of varied backgrounds. Women like Rahab, a harlot of Jericho, who protected Joshua’s soldiers from being discovered, which led to their victory and the falling of the walls of Jericho. She then became mother to Boaz, who married Ruth, a Moabite woman who turned to God. Ruth became mother to Obed, who was father to Jesse, king David’s father.


And our Lord Jesus first showed himself to a woman when He was risen from the tomb.


Let’s not forget Esther, a Hebrew orphan who became Queen to king Ahasuerus, ruler of Persia who reigned over 127 provinces from India to Ethiopia. She believed that God put her there for such a time and she was used by God to debunk a plan to annihilate Jews everywhere.


So in all of this we know that no matter what your circumstances, or whatever season you are in at this time, whether you are a single mom, a mom of a prodigal child, or anxious over the world’s goings on. We are not abandoned. As Proverbs 31:10-31 women, we are cherished.


Let’s pull our strength from our Maker and be united in Christ. Let us pray for our families and for each other. Let’s also remember to pray for Israel and the Middle East, for all the innocent.


For greater is He Who lives in us than he who lives in the world.” 1John 4:4


 


Here is a recipe for Challah Bread. I used the recipe in the Satisfied Cookbook by Annette Reeder, on page 43.


Why did I add this recipe?


Watch this YouTube video by Annette Reeder, where she encourages prayer throughout the process. As she recommends, you, too, can pray as the Lord leads.



Be blessed Friends.

Thanx Tina! Wonderful insights and article. It seems like women in general struggle with valuing themselves. This is a great reminder that God has purpose, identity and a Godly inheritance for women who love Him, regardless of their background or circumstances. Praise the Lord!
