Be Excited, You Are of Great Value
First of all we learned about the word, Ezar.
Ezar is a Greek word and it's translated helper.
The word is only used 21 times in the Bible and two of those times are referring to women and the other 19 are referring to God himself.
Remember when God said it wasn't good for man to be alone, and so then God made a woman, a helper, he made an ezar for man.
It's so exciting to know that as women we were and are created with an attribute of God.
Just as God is our helper, we are helpers to our husbands and our children and all kinds of people.
As women, we are caregivers, we are nurtures, we are helpers, we almost can't stop ourselves because it's in our DNA.
It's who we are.
We're marked by God.
I heard Devi Titus use the example of a designer purse to explain it.
She asked the question, "What makes a designer purse a designer purse?"
Well, of course it's the mark of the designer.
The mark is what sets it apart from all other purses.
She went on to say that if you neglected the purse, if you stepped on the purse if you forgot the purse it wouldn't change the value of the purse, the purse was a designer purse, it was of great value because it carried the mark of the designer.
Without the mark it would just be ordinary.
She went on to say that as women we have been designed my God, we are his creation and he has put his mark on us.
We are Ezars, we bring blessings to so many.
We bring comfort and rest, encouragement and strength.
So the next time you feel worthless, you feel like you've blown it or like you have been kicked to the curb, remember, you are of great value, you are an Ezar, only you and God are ever referred to that way.
You are marked by the ultimate designer and you are of great value.
