Made in the Image of God
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. (Genesis 1:27,28 KJV)
I remember the first time that scripture came alive to me. I was searching out my role as a woman and had been very confused about what exactly my portion was in God's economy. In my frustration I asked the Lord. I just said, "Lord Jesus, how do you want to live your life through me as a woman?" Now I had known this scripture but somehow that day it "CAME ALIVE" to me.
Do you realize that as a woman you are made in the image of God?
As time went by, Jesus began to teach me by the influence of His Spirit what it was in my womanhood that was like Him. It was then that I realized: in the beginning the woman was brought forth to fulfill the "helpership" role of God. I began to get acquainted with the power of God that is released through that role and I found a new excitement in being a woman.
Don't listen to any other voices and allow them to confuse you. Ask Jesus yourself, He wants to bring you into your full potential, even as a woman!
