This statement above has lead to murder, depression, child abuse, suicide, verbal/physical abuse, and sickness because you were looking for man, and not God, to give you the things you need and desire. Jeremiah 17:5 says, “Thus says theLord: “Cursed is the man who trusts in man and makes flesh his strength, whose heart turns away from the Lord.
So what happens when that man that gave you the lifestyle you always desired decides to stop? We all have heard of women killing or having their husbands/mates killed. I know women right now that are still struggling with depression from a marriage/relationship that was over years ago. Or women abusing their children or even neglecting them for a man that they are trying to keep. How many stories have we all have heard about women being the victims of abuse from a man, but stay in this unhealthy relationship because they are not able to take care of themselves.
How many men have you ever heard tell their mother, daughter, or even sisters, “Make sure you find a man that can buy you nice things, and makes a lot of money so he can take care of your every need?” Or, “Don’t spend your money on buying your own house, cars, or getting a good education/career, let him do it for you?”
Learn to listen to what a man tells his mother, daughter, or sister because the wisdom he gives them is the same wisdom you need to hear. Notice when a man watches TV with his daughter how he points out successful women on TV and reminds his daughter she can be just like that. Then he goes on to talk to her about having her own.
We see the signs all around us, but still fall into the trap of waiting for a man to give it to us, thus the reason we are always disappointed with relationships with have with men when it comes to them always taking care of us
