Every woman is created to be a blessing, not a burden. God’s intention is that wherever a woman is found, she becomes an asset, not a liability. Remember that when Eve joined Adam, life was supposed to be better for him.
She was to be an asset to him, a help not a hindrance.
The Bible says: And the Lord God said, It is not good that the man should be alone; I will make him an help meet for him (Genesis 2:18).
As a woman, you are to bring positive changes to your husband’s life.
There must be a difference in his life because you are married to him; and that difference should be glaring for all to see.
It is your responsibility to help him attain the greater heights God has prepared for him. This is where your productivity comes in.
No matter your status as a woman, you must learn to work with your hands in order to give value.
I have observed that no man wants a wife that is a burden to him; every man wants to marry an asset.
If a woman is not productive, she will invariably be burdensome to her husband.
The Bible says: Who can find a virtuous woman? For her price is far above rubies. She seeketh wool, and flax, and worketh willingly with her hands (Proverbs 31:10/13).
Another instance is the story of a woman called Lydia.
She was a seller of purple – in essence, she was a productive woman, a blessing to her generation (Acts 16:14).
God has designed a life of superlative results for you, whether you are married or single, you can be resourceful and productive.
As a woman with the mind of Christ, you must trust God for divine ideals that will propel your business or career forward.
It was just one divine idea that gave Jacob possession of all his benefits in labour.
Perhaps you might be engaged in a particular business that seems not to be profitable; rather than sit down bemoaning your lot, take a bold step towards doing something else.
There are many things your hands can do. You only need to open up your heart to God for divine ideas.
When those ideas come, work diligently towards making them a reality.
Many people have had various ideas that would have resulted in their success, but they have allowed them to slip away.
