Women of GOD who are wives:
I say unto you that we must submit to our husband! This is vital, especially if you have been used to being a single mom being both the mother and the father, we are constantly used to having to do everything by ourselves… and also if you are new in marriage it is a whole new thing unto you. We as women must learn how to submit to our husband as unto The LORD, as our husband is the head of the marriage as Christ is the Head of the Church. We are subject to them; the husband is the covering of his wife and the leader. This can be difficult especially being a woman of GOD, because as teachers of The WORD we are leaders in that role. We must learn how to transition from a leading role to a submissive role, and at times that can be really difficult because we just are used to having to lead or we don’t know how to transition from the leader to the follower. Go into prayer about this, and the Holy Spirit will teach you how to be submissive.
Sisters in Christ, women of GOD: submit unto your husbands in all that you do, just as they are to love us just as Christ loves His Church! We belong to our husband just as they belong to us, and we must be there to fulfill our husband in every way that he needs! Let us learn how to SUBMIT rather that to FORGET that there are rules on biblical marriage written by The Father Himself that we must heed! Give your husband a chance to lead you and to guide you, and submissively guide him in how to love you and what you need from him! Don’t just assume that our husbands know everything that we want or need. These things must be discussed and overcome! To become closer in intimacy on every level, to truly become one flesh, we must WORK TOGETHER TO MAKE IT WORK. It’s not only up to them, because they are the head, to automatically get everything right the first time and every time after that! It takes both husband and wife to build the foundation of the marriage and to keep it burning hot! This requires a lot of communication, and devotion of the heart!
We cannot expect that things will be perfect. We cannot assume that “he will just take care of it”. We cannot leave it all up to them, whether the marriage shall grow and thrive or be broken down. We must voice our mind and our heart without provoking anger if we are not in submission. We must listen to their heart just as much as we expect them to listen to ours. We must take their feelings into consideration at all times! Remember: they are to love us as we are to submit to them! This is the way Christ loves His Church! Take time to get to know your husband and what his needs and desires are. Take time to learn how to fall into that submissive role. Take time to study together and to pray together. Take time to devote yourselves unto one another. TAKE TIME TO MAKE TIME!
“Submitting yourselves one to another in the fear of God. Wives, submit yourselves unto your own husbands, as unto the Lord. For the husband is the head of the wife, even as Christ is the head of the church: and he is the saviour of the body. Therefore as the church is subject unto Christ, so let the wives be to their own husbands in every thing. Husbands, love your wives, even as Christ also loved the church, and gave himself for it; That he might sanctify and cleanse it with the washing of water by the word, That he might present it to himself a glorious church, not having spot, or wrinkle, or any such thing; but that it should be holy and without blemish. So ought men to love their wives as their own bodies. He that loveth his wife loveth himself. For no man ever yet hated his own flesh; but nourisheth and cherisheth it, even as the Lord the church: For we are members of his body, of his flesh, and of his bones. For this cause shall a man leave his father and mother, and shall be joined unto his wife, and they two shall be one flesh. This is a great mystery: but I speak concerning Christ and the church. Nevertheless let every one of you in particular so love his wife even as himself; and the wife see that she reverence her husband.”Ephesians 5:21-33
