In the same way, you wives must accept the authority of your husbands. Then, even if some refuse to obey the Good News, your godly lives will speak to them without any words. They will be won over 2 by observing your pure and reverent lives. 1 Peter 3:1-2 (NLT)
Women of God,
Take it one step at a time, but take a step. Ask God to show you where you could improve in an area of submission.
Show your husband the love of Jesus Christ even when you feel he doesn’t deserve it.
If we want our children to be obedient, or in our jobs–if we have positions of authority and we want our staff to follow directives, we must be first to be that example. When we start to submit to God in areas in our lives where we are being stubborn, we will begin to see a change in our spouse, in our marriage, and in our homes.
The commitment you made to your husband was made to God first.
Keep Jesus at the center of your marriage and don’t allow anyone, not even yourself to get in the middle. We can’t continually watch tv shows or listen to music that glorifies fornication, adultery, profanity, etc. then expect to see a change in our marriages. Reality TV is filled with gossip, deceit, hatred, arguments…that should not be our reality! Don’t allow those negative spirits into your eyes, your ears and into your homes.
Instead of giving your husband a piece of your mind, subject yourself to the Holy Spirit and allow Him to lead on your behalf.
While you are serving in your marriage God will do a work in you. Submit to the Lord, delight to do His will…His will is His word. How can you do God’s will if you don’t know His word? Read the word, speak the word over your husband, and over your family…there is life and death in the power of the tongue. Speak God’s Word that your husband is the spiritual authority over your home and trust that God will honor His Word!
Trust in the Lord with all your heart;
do not depend on your own understanding.
Seek his will in all you do,
and he will show you which path to take.
Proverbs 3:5-6 (NLT)
Be Blessed Women of God!
