Who have you used to compare yourself to in order to make changes in your life and why did you choose this person?

I believe God sees us as his daughters, his prize possession, He sees us as nurtures, the caretakers, the wives to the world to be an example of the way His love is suppose to be portrayed. I think He sees us this way because of who He created us to be.

I am a daughter of the Most High God; Adoni! I am a virtuous woman; anointed, appointed; announced to the world by the King of King and Lord of Lord. I am priceless to my Father; I am gem in His crown. I am the apple of His eye’s. I am His precious one. I am a woman of God, mother, wife, sister, friend, minister, prophet, pastor, teacher, Apostle. A woman with the gift of mercy, love, and kindness; filled with the fruits of the spirit of God. I am a vessel for my Father to use and I am one of His seeds sown on this earth that will produce a harvest. I am for God; Adoni; Yahwah, The Great “I AM”, the King of Kings and Lord of Lords, El Shaddai, EloHim…… (This is about to get me started!!). My destiny is to live a life powered out and be used for the glory of the Most High God. To be used at his discretion.

To me, God sees women as nurturers, strength of the family, the balance of her counterpart. In my case, independent but depended of Him. Why? As my mom would say, ‘two are better than one’.

God sees women as the apple of his eye. We are his daughters that are unique, created to be mothers, wives, established, and encourage others.

God FASHIONED woman in his image as a HELPER for the man. Giving her equal authority, dominion, and the assignment to come alongside man and fulfill the mandate given by God of being fruitful, multiplying, and subjugate (control, govern) (bring under the yoke – greek) the earth. God placed the woman in a COVENANT RELATIONSHIP where they would share a MUTUAL RESPECT for each other. He created Adam and FASHIONED WOMAN which to me represents HIS LOVE and tenderness towards her. Which would be symbolic of his love for the church, and sanctify of marriage. God placed around woman a HEDGE OF PROTECTION, In woman He gave her the ability to undergird, nurture, uplift, as they as one fulfill the mandate given to man by God to fulfill purpose. Her identity can only be found in Christ, as He is the one who fashioned her in uniqueness and He is the only one who truly knows why.

God see’s women as being an important source of man’s growth as someone man needed something that is like man but not like man,man had the animals but needed someone to communicate with and a helper man needed to be fruitful and multiply and fill the earth and subdue it he needed woman to help him in the process of fulfilling what God had spoken.

For as many times that I have read the story of creation I always thought that the creation of the woman happened there, where Adam was put to sleep and when Adam woke up there was woman. So, needless to say this time around in reading my eyes were open and my mouth was left opened when I read “… and he brought her to the man.” These were my thoughts: wait a minute! He brought her to the man?… where did God go? Why did He go away from Adam? What were His thoughts? How long did it take? Did Adam know that God did surgery on Him? Lol! What did He say to the woman? At this point I felt extra special to God.
I think that God sees woman as extra special. After creating man God had extra time to really think about how and what He wants to put in the woman. He had alone time with the woman just like He did with Adam before woman was presented to him. We definitely share in the dominion of the earth and our identity is not the same. Why did God say that the man should leave his mother and father and cleave to the woman? It is definitely something special that the man needs that he can only get from the woman.

I believe women are precious and valuable in the eyesight of GOD, according to Proverbs 18:22 he who finds a wife finds a good thing and obtains favor from the LORD.

I think about 1 Peter 3:4 is one example. Cultivate inner beauty, the gentle, gracious kind that God delights in. This is very precious in the sight of God.

Genesis 1: 27 says, “So God created man in his own image, in the image of God created he him; male and female created he them.” God is love so I believe he sees Women as love (John 3:16). God also sees Women as accepted (Romans 15:7). God sees Women as wonderfully made (Psalm 139:14).

This chapter 7 in Dr. Merle’s book was an enlightening chapter for me. It helped me to articulate the really beautiful relationship that I now recognize that God has with women. Women were planned and designed. We were designed to assist but I believe we are destined to provide and support solutions. Women were not designed with a need to be completed by men. Men and women are designed to help each other do more with the gift given by God.

Very well stated, Deborah! Great insights.
Dr. Merle Ray On May 9, 2020 at 2:07 pm
You are so right, Deborah.

One of the ways I think God sees women is the apple of His eye. Lam 2:15.One reason why is because husbands prayers can be hindered. 1st Pet. 3:7.
Dr. Merle Ray On May 9, 2020 at 2:08 pm
Right, Elder Barbara.
Sharon Parker On May 2, 2020 at 7:13 pm
The word of God says: “Then the Lord said: It is not good that man should be alone” Genesis: 2:18-23. So God created woman out of the rib of man. I believe God sees women in many ways and have great use for all of us. Women were and still are used in God’s kingdom mightily and in many roles, from the least to the greatest. Each woman has a powerful purpose and destiny in God’s plan. God loves women, they have been a vital part of his kingdom always.

Sorry that’s Proverbs 31

I believe God sees us as very important to the body, we were made to assist and those of us that are married should know what part we play as our wifely duties, Proverbs 30 is a good example, and those not married physically are married to Christ and the same applies we are His precious assistance in the body

You’re so right, Brenda.
