So God created man in his own image, in the image of God created he him; male and female created he them. Genesis 1:27

God is a respecter of no one. In His standing, everyone is equal before Him. If He thinks of one folk in a lofty way, He also holds the others in the same esteem. God is not gender bias; esteeming one of the sexes above the other. When, in Genesis 1:26, He said “let us create man in our own image, after our likeness…” He was not referring to the male gender, rather He was referring to the human race, which includes the female gender. This is very important. The female folks were part of God’s original and eternal plan for mankind.

Scriptures say in Genesis 1:27 that “God created man in his own image, in the image of God created he him; male and female created he them.” He created man; the male man and the female man. He went further to bless them and told them to “be fruitful, and multiply, and replenish the earth, and subdue it: and have dominion over the fish of the sea, and over the fowl of the air, and over every living thing that moveth upon the earth” (Genesis 1:28). He was not only blessing the male folks, but He was also blessing the female folks. “He blessed them…” That the physical male was first made, does not remove the important place the female have in the world and in God’s eyes.

A man, in the family, is the leader of the house, but if he is at variance with His wife, His prayers will not be honoured by God. This is because God sees them as EQUAL PARTNERS to the grace of life. Scriptures says in 1 Peter 3:7 “in the same way, you husbands must give honor to your wives. Treat your wife with understanding as you live together. She may be weaker than you are, BUT SHE IS YOUR EQUAL PARTNER in God’s gift of new life. Treat her as you should so your prayers will not be hindered” (emphasis mine). So, esteem the female folks as you would the male, for before God, they are equal.

Keep winning daily.

Key Point:

The women in your life are of the same standing, before God, with the men. Never let this out of your consciousness.
