I am one of those people who buys phones or devices and set it up not necessarily using the manual. Though I seem to get it set up, I end up not getting the best out of the device, as there will be options that I never knew of, since I did not read the manufacturer’s manual.
Another of my biggest challenges is DIY, sometimes I read manuals and try to follow the instruction in the manual in setting up a particular piece in my bedroom, living room or garden, but because I do not fully understand the process, I end up building things that are deformed, a shadow of what they ought to be. I therefore end up just patching up with whatever I have built.
These two pictures are the way womanhood has suffered greatly. We lack an understanding of the manufacturer’s design, and while some of us have the manual, we don’t go through it at all. We depend on other people to tell us how to live our lives as women, we depend on our own idea of what womanhood is.
It is a weird thing to see someone buy a hoover and take it out to mow the grass; such an act will make one look silly and such a person will be misusing the product.
God created the woman, He did so with a focus and a purpose to carry out. Unfortunately, the generation we live in has tried to take God out of daily living. Many women, live, searching for identity, and this reminds me of a children classic “Are you my mother?” Many women are finding life definition in beauty, careers etc, but unless we discover our maker, many of us will forever live an unfulfilled life.
Womanhood was God’s idea, God created the woman to tell the Gospel story. He who made human in the beginning created them male and female. Matt19:3
Every producer produces a product for a reason. Why did God make the woman?
In Gen 2:18 we read that God said it is not good for a man to be alone.
God, who is the manufacturer or producer of the woman made her in His very own image, and desired her to be a helper. God made the woman to complement the man. She was made to display the glory of God the maker in conjunction with her husband if she is married or in support of the male around her as a single woman.
God intended her to be fruitful, multiply, replenish, subdue and have dominion. Unfortunately, the first woman failed in this plan of God, and she automatically passed down to all women the inability to be productive in God’s plan.
Therefore, for womanhood to fulfill God’s plan, there is the need to return back to her Maker. Her identity can only be restored and found in God her Maker. Are you living a fulfilled life according to the plan of your Maker? Woman, you are the creation of God the maker. Discover Him now, acquaint yourself with your Lord and your Maker, and you will discover the purpose for living.
And hath made of one blood all nations of men for to dwell on all the face of the earth, and hath determined the times before appointed, and the bounds of their habitation; 27 That they should seek the Lord, if haply they might feel after him, and find him, though he be not far from every one of us. Acts 17:26-27
