Submission can be a daunting task for those who want everything to go their way. Many wives struggle with submitting to their husbands for fear of losing control. Many forfeit the security, peace and blessings that come with submitting.
Submission begins with God so those who struggle with submitting to their own husbands as to the Lord also struggle with trusting and submitting to the Lord Jesus Christ.
Many fail to realize that submission serves to protect us from the enemy’s attacks because many of our battles aren’t designed for us to do it alone.
They are many scriptures that reiterate the purpose and blessings connected to submitting not only to God but to the people that God has positioned for us for our own safety.
“21And further, submit to one another out of reverence for Christ. 22For wives, this means submit to your husbands as to the Lord. 23For a husband is the head of his wife as Christ is the head of the church. He is the Savior of his body, the church. 24As the church submits to Christ, so you wives should submit to your husbands in everything.”
-Ephesians 5:21-24 NLT
“14Are any of you sick? You should call for the elders of the church to come and pray over you, anointing you with oil in the name of the Lord. 15Such a prayer offered in faith will heal the sick, and the Lord will make you well. And if you have committed any sins, you will be forgiven. 16Confess your sins to each other and pray for each other so that you may be healed. The earnest prayer of a righteous person has great power and produces wonderful results.”
-James 5:14-16 NLT
“14Where no counsel is, the people fall: but in the multitude of counsellors there is safety.”
-Proverbs 11:14 KJV
