Her eyes shone brightly, the same baby-blue as her father’s. She had inherited his slim, fine-boned features, the same glowing olive skin and the same generous mop of wild, sandy-blonde hair. She laughed with him at the same jokes, an infectious laugh that brought joy to all around them. She shared his passion for life, wild abandoned spirits that were hungry for adventure. Some said she could guess what he would say, before the words left his lips. There was no mistake: she was her father’s daughter.
So too do women innately reflect the behavior of their Heavenly Father. Eve was blessed with the sacred role of helping, nurturing, supporting. She was to be an encourager: a companion who came alongside to promote the well-being of others. A helpmate. This is our gift and our calling from God. ‘The Lord said, “It is not good that the man should be alone; I will make a helper as his partner.”’ Genesis 2:18 (NRSV).
Consider how our mission mirrors our Heavenly Father. Psalm 121:2 says, ‘My help comes from the Lord’ and Psalm 46:1 reminds us that ‘God is our refuge and strength, a very present help in trouble.’ God is our encouragement, our help, our support and He gave the same nurturing qualities to His hand maidens so that they may be an encouragement, a help and a refuge of support for others.
We are called to imitate our Heavenly Father as witnessed by His Son, Jesus. Study Jesus through the Scriptures – the example of helper and encourager par excellence. Let’s esteem our role, consider our example, reflect His image and exalt our God.
