Have you ever heard a woman say that she doesn’t need a man? That she can cut her own grass, make her own money and raise her children without the help of a man? Sure she can, no one is questioning that. If you feel threatened in this area and the need to tell everyone and post it on Facebook, it’s the enemy you are yielding to. You don’t have to feel threatened if you are in the body of Christ. Romans 8 teaches that there is no condemnation to those who are in Christ who walk according to the Spirit and not the flesh. Don’t be condemned and feel the need to lash out as the angry woman . . . just because your man(or used to be man) is no good at providing and may be a horrible baby daddy. Sow the Word has posted in this area. Check the blog to find out what you should be saying about that baby daddy. It is clear that there are several women who are heads of households who do a very good job of providing for the family.
So what is the real issue here. It’s attitude. The independent woman has to be DEPENDENT on God. To be independent is to deny God’s purpose and power in your life. 2 Peter 1:3
3 His divine power has given us everything we need for a godly life through our knowledge of him who called us by his own glory and goodness.
So we see here that a godly life and everything we need can’t be had apart from Christ. So if you are making those statements about your ability and you are apart from Christ, you are deceived. You can’t do it the way God would have you do it apart from Him. You can only have good success if you do the Word of God. It didn’t say that you couldn’t have success . . . you just can’t have good success. See Joshua 1:7-8.
Well, what does this mean for relationships for the “independent” woman? Don’t be so independent that you can’t hear God. Knowing Him opens the door for peace and use by Him for His glory. God has people you are supposed to interact with. Someone else’s purpose in life is tied to you fulfilling your purpose. Don’t be the angry independent woman. Depend on God to supply you needs, and yes He can allow you to be found by the perfect man for you . . . husband, provider, father and all.
