When Wives Pray Excerpt: Submission

Submitting to our husband is God's best for us. It is a protection system that is designed to cover us and allow us the freedom to flow in our God-Given gifts. But too often the principle of submission is misconstrued and used as a vice of control and manipulation. I believe a mindset shift needs to take place so that we fully understand the beauty and the power of submission. The beauty is that when we

completely give ourselves to our husband, allow him to take the lead and submit to his authority, it empowers him to fully walk in the Kingship God ordained and endorses and he will be confident in his ability to be all God has called him to be.  But when we micro-manage, nit-pick and boss our husband, it emasculates him, causing resentment and disrespect, which eventually leads to another set of issues down the line. Let me share something with you I learned long ago, “Submission is Power.” Let that sink deep in your spirit.  When you willingly and lovingly submit to your husband, your marriage will be empowered to succeed on every level.

  1. I am in total agreement with submission to the husband, but it took me years of heartache and pain to fully comprehend why God designed the family with husband as the head of the family. I am looking forward to hearing your experience on this matter. God bless.

    1. Thank you for sharing that. Yes, it is a very hard subject, but when we get the full understanding, our marriages will be blessed exponentially. Blessings!
