God has a purpose for everything, and it’s a proper and a right purpose that will end up giving us fuller love and compassion from the heart of God. – Jimmy Davis
There is a tremendous pull by our culture for women to seek identity in all the wrong places. A woman’s true identity is not in her intelligence, her appearance, her wealth, her job, or even her husband and children, as vital as those relationships are.
A woman first needs to find her identity in which she is in Christ – God’s beloved child. It is only as she does this that she can be fulfilled and carry out his plans for her. Regardless of what culture and society may say to the contrary, the highest worth and dignity were given to women by God in creation.
If you don’t learn what you were born to be and do, then you become a victim of other people’s opinions. That is why most people who don’t know who they are imitate others and become someone different from who they were created to be. Understanding who made you and who you are is crucial so that other people do not take possession of your life.
When a woman submits to God, Christ will work in her and through her by his Spirit. In this way, she will be enabled to accomplish all the purposes he has for her – but in His strength, not her own.
Are you missing out in regard to fulfilling the specific purposes for which you were created? God is saying to you, I want you to stop trying to be like someone else and be who you are. God has special plans for you. Seek to become who he created you to be. He has given you your personality and gifts for a specific reason. Ask God to make clear his purposes for you.
God made you unique because of the purpose He had in mind for you.
For we are God’s handiwork created in Christ Jesus to do good works, which God prepared in advance for us to do. Ephesians 2:10
