Created To Be His...Help Meet | pt 6

We now have the next installment of Debi Pearl's, Created To Be His Help Meet. Read and be blessed!!

Genesis 2:18
And the LORD God said,
It is not good that the man should be alone;
I will make him an help meet for him.

Finding Your Life In His
From the beginning, God meant for us to be a comfort, a blessing, a reward, a friend, an encouragement, and a right-hand wo-man..

God didn't create Adam and Eve at the same time and then tell them to work out some compromise on how they would each achieve their personal goals in a cooperative endeavor. He created Adam, gave him an occupation, appointed him as a ruler of the planet, endowed him with a spiritual outlook, gave him commands, and specified his occupational duties. Adam commenced his rule of the planet before God created Eve to help him in his life's goals. Adam didn't need to get Eve's consent. God gave her to Adam to be HIS helper...She was designed to serve, to assist.

God made us women to be help meets and it is in our physical nature to be so. It is our spiritual calling and God's perfect will for us. It is the role in which we will succeed in life, and it is where we will find our very greatest fulfillment as a woman and as a saint of God. God said in Genesis, "I will make him an help meet for him." Paul said, "For the man is not of the woman; but the woman of the man. Neither was the man created for the woman; but the woman for the man" (1 Corinthians 11:8-9). "Unto the woman he said...and thy desire shall be to thy husband, and he shall rule over thee" (Genesis 3:16).

When we fight God's will and our husband's dreams, we are frustrated and disappointed. If our husbands are kind, Steady Men, they will eventually become discouraged and give up trying to please us. If our husbands are Command Men, they may leave us behind. If our husbands are Visionaries, they wil yell and make our life miserable until we run back to mama.

Life is full of choices. How you choose to respond will help decide your fat in life. Life is now. Learn how to really enjoy taking out the trash or milking a cow. You will be amazed at how God will fill you full of Himself. You will look back in your "happy" old age and rejoice at your lot in life and wonder how you could have ever been a long-faced sad sack. Someday people will say to you, "Your personality is just a happy type, and that is why you enjoy life. Isn't that right?" You can laugh and know that being in God's will is the only thing that makes you full of joy. God is not looking for happy women to make them into help meets for good men. He is looking for women willing to be true help meets to the men whom they married, so He can fill them full of joy.

His Express Image
We have studied three different types of men and how each one relates to the lady in his life. We have learned that God gives wisdom to those who ask. By now you know that it will take supernatural wisdom for you to come to know, accept, and appreciate your man as God made him. He may be all three different expressions at different times in his life, or he may be some of one and a lot of another. The important thing is for you to understand that he is what God made him, and that you are to be his suitable helper. Know what "expression" God made him to be will help you become a better helper to the man of your life. God says so clearly and emphatically that, "If any of you lack wisdom, let him of God, that giveth to all men (and women) liberally, and upbraideth not; and it shall be given him" (James 1:5). Ask God to help you know and appreciate your man. Pray that God will give you the wisdom and grace to share your man's dreams so it will always be you that he dreams about.

Make a New Habit
Is it God's will for your husband to adapt to you, or is it God's will for you to adapt to him? What habits in your life should you change to adapt to your husband's needs? Start today.

Getting Serious With God
The Bible teaches that the sister of wisdom is God's commandments, and the kinswoman to wisdom is understanding (Proverbs 7:4). Add to your diary your favorite wisdom verses. Establish one time each day that you will be reminded to ask God for wisdom.
