What Women Need: Women Need Assurance

Indeed, the very hairs of your head are all numbered. Do not fear; you are more valuable than many sparrows. (Luke 12:7)

We need to know that we are appreciated, and loved; that we are valued.

The world would have us believe that our value is only what we can give back to it – according to what it determines is valuable. Back in the 60s the “women’s movement” began convincing women that they were to have any value, they would have to get out of the kitchen. That if they wanted to be truly fulfilled, they not only needed to cook the bacon, they had to be the ones to “bring it home”.

The movement hasn’t lost steam, over the years it has only accelerated influencing the lives of 3 generations of women. It has not only succeeded in taking away our femineity, and degrading our God given purpose, it is now making every effort to rob us our gender itself.

It’s influence has even moved into the Christian community. Professing Christians, women who are out there, getting a lot of media attention, are telling us that if we’re not pursuing and occupying the same positions as men, if we are not filling those “male roles” that we are somehow less than.

Nothing could be further from the truth.  It all sounds good but God’s word says different.  When we need to know our true value let’s remember:

  • God created us and, according to Genesis 1, all that God created is “very good”.
  • We are daughters of the One True God/heirs with Christ
  • And we need to remember that God loves us so much that He sent His Son to ransom us.
  • That the Son came willingly, and suffered and died for US!

So, when in doubt, and we all have doubts, just remember, it doesn’t matter what the world says, it matters what God says and He says our value is in Jesus Christ and we are more valuable that precious stones!
