God’s Calling For Women

God’s Calling For Women

Many women today make up what they want God’s calling on their lives to be. “God has called me to be a doctor.” “God has called me to get a divorce.” “God has called me to start a women’s movement.” For some reason, many “Christian” women today find their “calling” by what they want to do instead of by seeking the answers in God’s Word.

This is another one of my posts that has gone viral recently. People usually find the most controversial one that I have written and share it a lot. It’s been seen by over a million people and most of them hate it.

I don’t know where this new movement came from that decided that women can “hear” from God and find out their calling. It’s not that difficult to find out what God calls us to do! Concerning a husband, God “calls” us to marry a believer. That’s it! Beyond that, He’s given us free will to marry a man who is a believer.

Concerning what kind of a wife He has called us to be, He has made this very clear in His Word: submissive to our own husbands and having meek and quiet spirits. Concerning children, He wants us to be fruitful and multiply since children are a blessing from Him. Concerning finances, He doesn’t want us to go into debt, He wants us to be generous and to work hard. Concerning raising our children, He wants us to raise them in the nurture and the admonition of the Lord.

He has given us His Word which imparts wisdom to us and His Holy Spirit to help guide us. Then He promises to us that we have everything we need for life and godliness (2 Peter 1:3). He calls those who look for a sign “wicked and adulterous” (Matthew 16:4). He wants His Word to dwell in us richly so that we won’t sin against Him. We will clearly know His calling upon our lives as we seek it in His Word.

If you’re going to listen to women teachers, listen to those who teach what God has instructed them to teach. He’s clear in His Word about this, too. If they never mention loving and obeying your husband, being discreet, chaste, sober, good, and keepers at home, find other women teachers who do teach what God has “called” them to teach. Learn the doctrines of the faith from godly men preachers/teachers of the Word. God has “called” men to preach/teach the Word of God and it’s all very, very good.

And be not conformed to this world: but be ye transformed by the renewing of your mind, that ye may prove what is that good, and acceptable, and perfect, will of God. Romans 12:2

  1. Excellent Lori!

    Men were created in the image of and to be the glory of God. In following our instruction to be in dominion over the earth, men have many choices of what to do with their lives that would fall into Gods “will” and “calling” for us (as men).

    Women on the other hand were created for a different purpose. They were created to be the companion and helper of a man. (Genesis 2:18) Women were created “for the man” and to be the “glory of the man” (1 Corinthians 11:7-8). This is what God PLAINLY tells you that your purpose and calling is.

    Ladies, how can you help and be the glory of a man if you do not marry one? How can you be a crown to your husbands head if you don’t have one? (Proverbs 12:4) How can you claim to be a Christian (follower of Christ) if you do not obey the commands he has given SPECIFICALLY to you in His word?

    The simple truth is…. you can’t.

    Matthew 7:21-23 “Not everyone who says to Me, ‘Lord, Lord,’ will enter the kingdom of heaven, but he who does the will of My Father who is in heaven will enter. “Many will say to Me on that day, ‘Lord, Lord, did we not prophesy in Your name, and in Your name cast out demons, and in Your name perform many miracles?’ “And then I will declare to them, ‘I never knew you; DEPART FROM ME, YOU WHO PRACTICE LAWLESSNESS.’”

  2. Lori, what a great post again today. God’s Word transcends all time and cultures, as your husband Ken noted in one of his writings. It is always relevant; AND, it is settled in heaven . Thanks for sharing this!🙂

  3. I absolutely love your posts! Many people get offended by it because you speak the truth boldly. You don’t sugar coat anything and I like that about you. Keep up the good work your more of an encouragement to some people than you realize!😉

    1. The Apostle Paul spoke highly of being single and being able to minister for the Lord. “The unmarried woman careth for the things of the Lord, that she may be holy both in body and in spirit: but she that is married careth for the things of the world, how she may please her husband.” (1 Cor. 7:34)

      If a woman wants to dedicate herself in the service of the Lord, this is great, but most women will marry and God created marriage so it is good. He instructs young women to marry, bear children, and guide the home. If a woman decides she wants to be a doctor, she shouldn’t have children since the children will be neglected. Every single female doctor that I have known personally and talked with admits to neglecting their children and husband. It’s not a life for a mother and maybe not even a wife because most careers takes them away from home for hours every day.

  4. It’s interesting about today’s post. I was watching a short clip from the early 1970s of a womens march some were very anti-motherhood. This march was after Helen Reddy (most of you are too young to know her) song came out. The “feminazis” loved that song and it became their anthem for women’s “rights”.
    One sign said in the march said ” If motherhood is so rewarding, let men try it”. It’s really sad how times still haven’t changed. Feminists are belittling men and it’s even more disturbing that women who call themselves ” Christian ” are believing these lies from the enemy.

    1. I did, too, Regina, but neither of us were taught the beautiful ways of the Lord back then. All we heard were the feminist’s lies but I still knew all I wanted to do was to marry and have children.
