The Nature of Man and Woman

Men and women are different. There is NO way around that.

God planned it that way! His ways are ALWAYS better than ours!


Thankfully, men and women were not created alike. Men were created with traits that I do not want as part of me! But, when I married, it was, of course, to one of those strange male creatures with those traits. When we ladies discover traits in a man like sensitivity, spirituality, and understanding, we are thrilled, because they contrast so starkly with the many coarser and visible traits that so strongly drive his nature. After all, having a nature to subdue all hings, he likes best a woman who will give him a token struggle and then surrender to his wit, charm, and strength. He must thoroughly conquer.

The source of Eve’s failure was her unwillingness to believe God and her husband. <—- Ever Thought of that? Share it

She was meant to be Adam’s helper, but she helped herself to spiritual knowledge and acted independently, becoming his downfall instead of his help meet.  

I picture that God loaded man down with armor, resistances, giving him a nature that is doubting, skeptical, forceful and pushy…to survive…even prosper….to keep pushing against the odds, while enjoying the challenge.

Man’s objectivity and lack of intuitiveness make him appear less spiritual than the sensitive, believing female. As a general rule, man is ruled more by his mind than the female, who is governed more by her sensibilities.   

Picture God as deliberately creating the woman without the armor he gave man, because he intended her to stand behind her husband’s armor. He was to be her covering, her shield, her protector. 

The natural armor God had given Adam granted him enough understanding to doubt the Devil and resist his lies.

But Adam’s armor had one small weak spot. He was not ruled by his feelings except where it concerned his woman. Adam’s soul was exposed and vulnerable to the woman he loved.  <— Your Husband is too. Share it 

He wanted her happy, even if it meant disobeying God or going against his natural understanding of truth. He was willing to set aside reason for his woman. Eve’s influence over Adam changed the course of history. We need to be aware of the power we have to seduce our husbands into following us into disregarding the clear, objective words of God. 

When a man loves a woman and wants to make her happy, he will often acquiesce in spiritual matters because of the affection he holds for her in his heart. Your husband may set aside reason and good judgement if you pressure him and let him feel your displeasure and unhappiness. In a man’s heart, the place a woman holds will lead him into great strength or great weakness, depending on the woman and the man. It is there that men rise to great glory with their women, or they are dragged into shame and disgrace by them, or worse yet, are left unused by God.

Think of Adam, Samson, Solomon and even David.

Trust God with your traits and your calling! He will not lead you astray! He wants the best for you!
