The first guy who got away with decision making without the impact of a woman was Adam, when he still had a full set of ribs (Genesis 1:18-23). Why does God so often communicate with women first? On our first date, my then future wife told me what God had called her to be, and what that meant in terms of the husband she needed to fulfill that revelation. Prior to that my mother had been a bit more subtle, in telling me what she and God had determined would be my future. In both cases, the women were correct in their interpretation of my future. I have talked with countless men who share similar versions of my story. If there is an answer to my question, as to why God so often communicates with women first, it may be the same answer as to why God’s first communication following the resurrection of Jesus, was through an angel, but to women (Matthew 28:5-7; Mark 16:5-7; Luke 24:4-8; John 11-14), and the first appearance of Jesus following His resurrection was to Mary Magdalene (John 20:15-17), and therefore, the first verbal witness of God’s resurrection power was shared by Mary to the male disciples (20:18). My intent is not to make more of this than is necessary, although I’m sure some who respond will be prone to do so, but my desire is to share that God reveals His will to whomever He chooses, and we had best listen when the communication comes from God, whomever might be the messenger.
