Why Was I Created a Woman? by Nancy Leigh DeMoss 07/01/11

Nancy Leigh DeMoss: Why were you created as a woman?

“Uhh . . . to bring home the bacon?!” (laughter)

“It was just chance, I guess.”

“So I could turn some heads!”

Nancy: Do you know that the Bible has a lot to say about why women were created?

“The LORD God said, ‘It is not good for the man to be alone. I will make a helper suitable for him’” (Gen. 2:18).

Nancy: Are you willing to sacrifice your own ambitions to fulfill your role as a helper to your husband?

“For man did not come from woman, but woman from man; neither was man created for woman, but woman for man” (1 Cor. 11:8-9).

Nancy: Is your life helping and blessing the men around you?

“The woman is the glory of man” (1 Cor. 11:7).

Nancy: Why were you created as a woman? As you read God’s Word, ask Him to show you His purpose for your life. Then ask Him to help you fulfill that purpose.

With Seeking Him, I’m Nancy Leigh DeMoss.

  • “I entreat you, give no place to despondency. This is a dangerous temptation–a refined, not a gross temptation of the adversary. Melancholy contracts and withers the heart, and renders it unfit to receive the impressions of grace. It magnifies and gives a false colouring to objects, and thus renders your burdens too heavy to bear. God’s designs regarding you, and His methods of bringing about these designs, are infinitely wise.” – Madame Guyon
