Have you noticed a changing trend in our culture? Have you ever thought of the change in women?? As in the past few generations. While most women would not think of it in the terms of ‘Wimpy’, that pretty much sums it up. We are believing lies and following the crowds of unbelievers. And going against God’s ordained plan for Womanhood.
As John Piper wrote in his chapter ‘The Ultimate Meaning of True Womanhood’ ‘Wimpy Theology does not give a woman a God that is big enough, strong enough, wise enough and good enough to handle the realities of life in a way that magnifies the infinite worth of Jesus Christ.’
So often the Woman of today’s generation are not allowing God to work in their hearts, to be put in the place He desires to them to be, whether single or married, etc. etc. We are ‘standing up for our own rights’. We want to be leaders and do a Man’s job and live in a man kind of world. Many are no longer wanting to stay home and be the Keeper of the Home. They are missing the role God has called them to fulfill. And obviously, if you are not married, your role will be different, but you can still be in the place God calls you and be a ‘True Woman’.
God has made two distinct roles- Manhood and Womanhood. Gen. 1:27 ‘God created man in His own image, in the image of God created He him; male and female He created them.’ God wants to display His glory in us. Another quote from John Piper, ‘The meaning for true womanhood is this: It’s a distinctive calling of God to display the glory of His son in ways that would not be displayed if there were no womanhood.‘ We have a distinctive calling!!
So many woman today are trying to be men. They feel they are being put down and are ‘lesser’ then them. But that is just where God has placed us and how He planned it. We are called to be ‘Keeper’s at Home’. There are so many lies out there that Satan has us believing to be truth. The ladies at our Church have been studying the book ‘Lies Woman Believe’ by Nancy Leigh DeMoss. (I highly recommend the book.) I am amazed at just how many lies I have been believing. And that is just what Satan wants. He has fudged and smeared the truth that it’s hard to tell the right from wrong. He has us on a slippery slope and we are not even aware of how really bad it is.
But how wonderful it is to know Jesus forgives and He gives us strength to be the True Women He has called us to be. I am so glad I have the power through Him to become the True Woman He wants me to be.
