You are called to be the suitable help-meet of your husband.

Orig Hebrew: ezer kenegdo.

An ezer is an ally, and aid, someone who brings support and relief – better translated “corresponding strength,” “essential counterpart,” or “indispensable companion.”

In His holy Word, God specifically chose to use the word ezer to describe the creation of woman, a word He also uses to describe Himself sixteen times in the Old Testament as Israel’s ally, helper, deliverer, shield, and defender. And He has imparted this aspect of His image to you, His precious daughter.

“Ezer… is a lifelong calling.

A woman fulfills her ezer calling as she brings everything she is – her personality, wisdom, experiences, strengths, talents, passions, time, energy, and resources – and uses it to support, encourage, strengthen.
