Judges 5:6-7 NKJV “In the days of Shamgar, son of Anath, In the days of Jael, The highways were deserted, And the travelers walked along the byways. Village life ceased, it ceased in Israel, Until I, Deborah, arose, Arose a mother in Israel.”
When God was to create the woman, He said, “It is not good that man should be alone; I will make him a helper comparable to him.” God created women to be helpers, but a lot of women in the world today have made themselves dependants. It is children who should be dependants, not you, lady!
There’s so much noise about women empowerment. Don’t you know that he who gives you power can take it away from you? The great and powerful women I’ve read of and known did not go about seeking to be empowered, they empowered themselves, made themselves significant, they were wise, hardworking, diligent, focused, passionate about certain causes and virtuous. They impacted and changed lives.
Woman, arise! God wants to use you in your generation! Make a decision to be a person of influence; rid yourself of that mentality of a dependant! Take on challenging roles; don’t avoid responsibilities; choose to be a virtuous woman! ARISE!
To do: Share with your female contacts, friends, colleagues, members, etc.
