Male and female. Men and women. Boys and girls.
This is God’s design for humanity. This is never going to change. There aren’t enough surgeries in the world to change your God-given gender.
But what is the start of all of this?
Discontent. Not being accepting and thankful for what God has made you to be. Wanting to take matters into your own hands, when in actuality, you aren’t fixing the root of the problem. If someone feels the need to change their gender, having a gender changing surgery isn’t going to fix their problem. Their problem is accepting what God says in Psalm 139:14: I praise you, for I am fearfully and wonderfully made. Wonderful are your works; my soul knows it very well. We think we can take matters into our own hands, trying to do what only God can do. We think we are entitled to the right to change what God made us to be.
Our country is in chaos.
No one knows who they are or what bathroom to use. No one knows that men and women were created special and different. Except, Bible-believing Christians do know these things. So what do we do about it? Here are 3 key steps for the Christian girl in a transgender world:
- Live Unashamed. If we want to serve Christ, we must keep ourselves unspotted from the world, and this means not becoming what the world wants you to be. You cannot shrink back from what you believe in because it’s not “cool”. Stand up for your beliefs!
- Pray with Power. The prayer of a righteous person has great power (James 5:16). God can do anything, if we just ask Him! He knows our needs, but He wants to hear it from you. Don’t complain about the wicked in the world, but pray about it! Be bold in your prayers, knowing before you ask that God can.
- Don’t Lose Hope. Our country is bad, but in reality, it’s always been that way. We’ve never had a completely, 100% God-fearing nation. But, we don’t have to. Yes, it’s bad, but God never promised easy. He said He’d be there to get us through it when it is. Our country’s corruption will probably never get better, but it doesn’t have to, because we have the hope of something infinitely better and eternally enriching: our home in heaven with God.
Our country is chaos. But our God is order and peace. Make it your life purpose to serve Him, and remember: this world is not our home.
