Dear Women and young girls, see how woefully beautiful our Creator has made us;
1) He made us in His Image, in His likeness;
26 Then God said, “Let us make man in our image, after our likeness. And let them have dominion over the fish of the sea and over the birds of the heavens and over the livestock and over all the earth and over every creeping thing that creeps on the earth.”
27 So God created man in his own image,
in the image of God he created him;
male and female he created them” Genesis 1:26-27
Which also means that in God’s economy, we are equal to men, beautifully different, but equal.
2) Men was created out of the dust of the ground, woman was created out of the flesh of man;
7then the Lord God formed the man of dust from the ground and breathed into his nostrils the breath of life, and the man became a living creature Genesis 2:7…..18 Then the Lord God said, “It is not good that the man should be alone; I will make him a helper fit for him.” Genesis 2:18 ….. 21 So the Lord God caused a deep sleep to fall upon the man, and while he slept took one of his ribs (God wounded his side… reminds you of something?) and closed up its place with flesh. 22 And the rib that the Lord God had taken from the man he made into a woman and brought her to the man. Genesis 2:21-22
3) The man was created outside the garden, the woman was created inside;
15 The Lord God took the man and put him in the garden of Eden to work it and keep it. Genesis 2:15
Why is this significant? Because it shows how protective God is of His daughters, He created them in a place of protection, with a protector (the man). He said;
24 Therefore a man shall leave his father and his mother and hold fast to his wife, and they shall become one flesh. Genesis 2:24
The man is the one leaving father and mother, the woman consistently stays under the protection of he father until her husband takes her under his protection.
4) Woman was God’s last creation. You’ll have to ready Genesis 1-2 to see this truth, Genesis 3 is where the beauty of God’s perfect design gets marred by sin shaping the world we live in until Christ comes back to reign as King of Kings and Lord of Lords (Revelation 19:15-17)
Do not give into what the world defines as beautiful, but embrace your God given beauty which is far better and lasting then anything the lying princes of this world would define as beauty. For true beauty is not external, but the internal that reflect on the external. Look to the King who truly defines beauty as He is the One who created it.
A big thank you to Marry Kassian for showing me these amazing truths.
