God Called On A Woman To Be A Mother

When God wanted to save the world, as part of his plan, he called on a woman to be a mother. He called on a woman to fulfil the role for which he created women. 

There's a good reason the devil goes out of his way to get women out of the home, and away from motherhood. The Devil and God have opposite ideas of human roles, and therefore the Devil seeks to transform people into his vision. Because it damages God's vision for humanity.

Mary is bless among all women, to be the mother of the Lord Jesus Christ: 

"39 In those days Mary arose and went with haste into the hill country, to a town in Judah, 40 and she entered the house of Zechariah and greeted Elizabeth. 41 And when Elizabeth heard the greeting of Mary, the baby leaped in her womb. And Elizabeth was filled with the Holy Spirit, 42 and she exclaimed with a loud cry, “Blessed are you among women, and blessed is the fruit of your womb! 43 And why is this granted to me that the mother of my Lord should come to me? 44 For behold, when the sound of your greeting came to my ears, the baby in my womb leaped for joy. 45 And blessed is she who believed that there would be a fulfillment of what was spoken to her from the Lord.” (Luke 1:39-45). 

But in the incarnation the state of motherhood is lifted up and honoured for all women. Because without a faithful mother fulfilling her calling, the incarnation was not possible. Hence why Satan hates motherhood so much. It's one of the key sources of life and nourishment in this world, including at one time for the Saviour himself. 

When a woman takes her role to be a mother seriously it honours her created purpose and is a righteous rebellion against the false God of this age. We need more mothers like Mary, and like her righteous sisters that fulfil their calling as nurturers as well.
