My Help Meet Examples ~ Biblical and Living

Throughout my life I’ve been blessed to have a living example of a help meet as God created us to be.

When Roz sent her post for this month’s Help Meet Corner topic, I couldn’t believe how much I identified with everything she said. Our mother’s are cut from the same cloth. How very blessed we are.

Looking to God’s word and the great examples there, I found myself drawn to two women in particular.

Eve, the first help meet is often given a bad rap because she grabbed the “apple”. Yet, I see it as a bad decision, and God knows I’ve made many of those. She was THE woman CREATED to fill this great job first, helping alongside her husband, ensuring he was not alone.

Sarah, obeyed her husband in ways we often feel is unreasonable. Later we find that she tried to fulfill God’s promise to him by giving her handmaid to her husband. Yet, in 1 Peter she is spoken of as a “holy woman, who trusted in God“. What praise for trusting God through her life as a help meet!

In looking to examples in life as well as in God’s word, I am encouraged that no help meet is perfect. Neither are their flaws/failures hidden.

Even following the greatest examples given us, we find they each struggled in their own way.

This knowledge enables me to keep pressing on.

By Eve’s role, Sarah’s obedience and my mother’s living example I am accountable for the knowledge I have, of what is required of me as a help meet.

Though I may stumble, though I may fall, I know God will work on and through me through it all.
