The relationship between the mother and the daughter is wonderful and beautiful. There is life, there is wisdom, there is knowledge, there is understanding, and there is beauty. Keep in mind that women too, were created in God’s image (see Genesis 1:27). So, without a doubt, we too have our Heavenly Mother. In 1 John 5:7, the bible explains, “For there are three that bear witness in heaven: the Father, the Word, and the Holy Spirit; and these three are one.”
A typical family usually involves the Father, Mother, and the Child or Children. It is interesting to note that women are often identified with and praised for their ability to nurture the new born baby and to train the baby to develop and grow. And, it is often the mother who comforts her baby, and in the process of time, it is also the mother who usually helps to train the child with the father.
In Proverbs 22:6, the bible tells us, “Train up a child in the way he should go, And when he is old he will not depart from it.” Obviously, the child can be male or female, and thus, the bible is referring to us training both our sons and daughters in the ways of God. We can certainly thank God for His wonderful and amazing love for His children!
A good example of a mother and daughter relationship in the bible is that of Naomi and Ruth. We can see how Ruth was willing to honor Naomi and to go with her back to Israel, and How God blessed her. In one of the Ten Commandments, God said, “Honor your father and your mother, that your days may be long upon the land which the LORD your God is giving you,” (Exodus 20:12), and in Ephesians 6:1-3, Apostle Paul wrote, “Children, obey your parents in the Lord, for this is right. “Honor your father and mother,” which is the first commandment with promise: “that it may be well with you and you may live long on the earth.””
Our God is so awesome that He has provided great promises for all His sons and daughters! In Joel 2:28-29, God said; “And it shall come to pass afterward That I will pour out My Spirit on all flesh; Your sons and your daughters shall prophesy, Your old men shall dream dreams, Your young men shall see visions. And also on My menservants and on My maidservants I will pour out My Spirit in those days.” Wow! Thank God that He has provided His Spirit and gifts to all His sons and daughters!
In Matthew 12:49-50, Jesus said, “Here are My mother and My brothers! For whoever does the will of My Father in heaven is My brother and sister and mother.” In Psalm 27:10, King David identified God’s supernatural care in his life, saying, “When my father and my mother forsake me, Then the LORD will take care of me.” And in 2 Corinthians 6:18, the bible also tells us another wonderful promise from God; “I will be a Father to you, And you shall be My sons and daughters, Says the LORD Almighty.” Yes, it is good to know that God is also the Perfect Mother too. Be blessed always. Live your best life with God, and live inspired.
