Yep, all wives. We are designed to e warriors, alongside our husbands. Remember that crazy verse in Genesis?
“It is not good for the man to be alone. I will make a helper suitable for him.” Genesis 2:18
A suitable helper? Seriously? In the garden, charged with caring for and having dominion over… everything? A helper. Umm, yeah.
But what if I told you that the word “helper” is translated from the Hebrew phrase “ezer kenegdo.” The literal translation of ezer is “protection or aid.” Kenegdo is “counterpart or equal, and sometimes against.” Ezer is used 22 more times in the Old Testament. 17 of these references are made to show God as the Hebrews’ protection or aid, often in times of great need of physical assistance or military assistance.
Adding kenegdo to ezer denotes an equality and strength of support. Therefore, God clearly designed wives to stand for and with their husbands through times of trial and challenges.
And this is the premise of my newest book project! So excited to get it underway. Watch this space for more information!
