Genesis 2:18 “And the Lord God said, it is not good that the man should be alone; I will make him an help meet for him” Women Job description to me originates from culture, communication, tradition, fashion or fad, popular opinion, Government Politics among others. The Lord God Himself wrote out women Job description which is to be a help mate.
If you agree with me, a help that will meet up with the challenges of a man, compliment the man and help him to achieve his purpose and destiny in life is what women (helpmate) must be. Though, the way you treats your wife before God matter. Do not put down your wife or allow your relatives to run her down; never.
As a woman, you have to do the following to fulfill your role, as a helpmate;
- Help him fulfill his divine assignment: the reason for marriage is to help man fulfill his divine purpose in life. Adam got a purpose before he got a marriage. You need a wife for the purpose to be achieved. Be a helper to him as he is fulfilling his role as the leader and the provider for the family.
2. Minister to his physical, emotional and spiritual needs: every woman is to minister to her man bodily needs such as food, comfort, sex, and prayers. Be a companion to him and help his psyche and self-esteem by respecting and honoring him at all times. Cook better foods and be creative about sex; yes, be energetic as a woman. Please note that sex is a major covenant and it makes the bond in marriage stronger.
- Make your home a haven from the pressures of the world: physically and spiritually. Your home should be clean and tidy and must be free of filth, tension, and disarray.
- Determine to build your home with wisdom: Build with submission, love, patience, and discipline. You must talk with wisdom especially to your spouse and in-laws. Think through your every reply and avoid an emotional outburst.
