Summary: God wants you to understand His purpose for woman from the beginning. He has so many things for you to bless your life. Learn to walk as a Godly woman from this sermon.
1. Understand why God created women.
b. Fulfill His plan and purposes in the earth
Adam had charge of the Garden and he loved God, but God has no peer. Therefore, Adam was “alone”, because he had no peer. For love to exist, there must been object to love. God created woman to be Adam’s peer, the object of his love. She was created as a helpmeet or completer. By creation, she was made to be the completion of the man in God. (We should the object of love to men…not anything else it’s not the purpose of woman).
When God invested Himself in Adam in creation, He breathed into Adam and Adam became a living soul. He put the Kingdom of God in Adam, and Adam in the kingdom of God when he placed him in Eden. The characteristics of Adam emanated from the character of God which were inbreathed into him in creation. Adam had the nature of God implanted in him – both the masculine and feminine, tender and tough, disciplinarian and nurturer.
When God created woman, He took a rib from Adam to make her. The rib was symbolic of something taken from Adam and placed in Eve. If God would have created woman from anything else, she would have been inferior to Adam. But God never created any woman to be inferior to any man! Woman was made from man in the beginning, but ever since then, man has come from woman. With this, God shows the equality of men and women.
Woman – man with a womb; Adam when he saw the female he said, WO-MAN (or ain’t she fine!) – Genesis 2:23
God created you to be a WOMAN. You are anointed (or equipped) to be a WOMAN. Stop trying to be something else!
God wants you to understand today that you are HIS WOMAN. Even though you fell with man (Genesis 3), God already knew it and provided a way of escape (Jesus). God wants you back in fellowship with Him in Eden (new earth and heaven) in the cool of the day where he walked and fellowship with you. He wants you to be a Godly woman!

Now faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen (Heb. 11:1).
