4 when the Lord has washed away the filth of the daughters of Zion and cleansed the bloodguilt from the heart of Jerusalem by a spirit of judgment and a spirit of burning.
Specifies that He saves females, daughters of Zion. States it first. I believe there is definite confusion over a women’s role in the world. God holds women to be of great importance, but He also understands–created–order and put the man to be the head.
Feminist screech over this. Why? Somehow, women think that they are less because they are not superior. How about just being different?
There are things a woman can do that a man can’t: Give birth, think with both sides of our brains at the same time (logical and emotional).
I’m a strong, independent woman, and it has taken many years, but I have had wise advice and God put on my heart to let my husband lead. I have influence, but ultimately I leave decisions to him; he puts authority and responsibilities on me, like household management, day to day things, kids’ activities, etc, but I only manage what he puts to me, gives me authority for within the household.
I do have other businesses that my husband isn’t involved in, but that is by his choice. I can’t let those businesses interfere with things my husband has going on; and funny enough, God may use one of my businesses to provide provision for this family, allowing my husband to live out his life-long dream. (Women can do all kinds of things, all at the same time. Proverbs 31 is a great example!)
Funny how God works.
