Rather than prohibit sexual pleasure, the Bible shows that it is a gift from God to married people. He created humans “male and female” and viewed what he had made as being “very good.” (Genesis 1: 27, 31) When he brought the first man and woman together in .   Here are six quick snippets of wisdom I am gleaning from these women of the Bible: The enemy’s priority is to make us question God’s truth. Eve (Genesis , Genesis ) Trusting God is a fast-track to leaving a powerful legacy. Rahab (Joshua , Joshua , Matthew , Hebrews ) Trusting God gives birth to true joy.
