Women are More Delicate

As believers in Christ Jesus, we should desire to walk after the Spirit. Yes, we are in the Spirit the moment we believe. The Spirit indwells us. However, we are commanded to walk after the Spirit and not after the flesh. I made a list recently of all the sins that characterize walking after the flesh. One of them was "emulations" {KJV}. The definition of "emulations" is "ambition to endeavor to equal or excel others {as in achievement}." 

This is exactly what feminism is doing. They say that they are fighting for "equality" with men. They are using the wrong word because in Christ, we are equal with men. We have the same worth and value in His sight as men. They should say they want to be the "same" as men. They want to be "equal" or the same as men and even excel them in every way possible. They want to take over their jobs. They want to be CEOs and Presidents. They want to leave their homes all day so they can make as much money as possible. Some women even want to become men.

We, as women who seek to please the Lord in all areas of our lives, should not be this way. We should respect the authority structure that the Lord has put into place. We should not want to take away our husband's headship over us nor try to lead the family. We shouldn't argue with them and demand our way but submissively follow them where ever they may lead us and do what they tell us to do.

"God reestablished a cardinal rule that day in the Garden that has proved wise and best. We are the weaker vessel because we are more frail and delicate. Therefore, man is our head, to give us strength and guidance. We as mothers find our greatest fulfillment as we serve God in our God-designated role in God's order. It is God's design.

God endowed a woman with a more tender, emotional nature. She feels insufficient when alone and fears the unknown. Peer opinions sway her more easily. She craves love and attention. This makeup suits a mother for the more protected role of being a keeper at home. 

Our husbands give us guidance and direction. With a more stable nature, they make wise decisions and we trust their judgment. We place confidence in their ability to lead us." {Ruth Mast}

No matter how hard women try to be the same as men, they never will be since they were created female and are the weaker sex. When I was younger with four young children and Ken traveled often, I hated being home alone without him at night. I still don't like it. Women need the protection of a man. This is the way God made it and it will always be this way. I bet even Hillary Clinton has male body guards since they will be able to protect her better than any female ones could. 

Therefore, walk in the Spirit, women. Don't try to be the same as men. Rejoice in your femininity in which the Lord created you to be. Men appreciate feminine women because it is opposite of them. They don't want masculine women and neither does God. Follow and appreciate the leadership of your husband, for this pleases the Lord.

Likewise, ye husbands, dwell with them according to knowledge, giving honour unto the wife, as unto the weaker vessel, and as being heirs together of the grace of life; that your prayers be not hindered.
1 Peter 3:7
