If You’re a Wife

If You’re a Wife

“Wives, submit to your own husbands.”         Eph 5:22 NKJV

Some people use this Scripture to treat women like a doormat, and rob them of their voice and right to any leadership role. Read the Bible! Deborah led the nation of Israel. Huldah the prophetess spoke the Word of God to kings. Let’s read the Scripture again: “Wives, submit to your own husbands, as to the Lord.” As a wife you are called to submit to “your own husband,” not to all men. In God’s eyes men and women are equal (See Gal 3:28). Paul is not speaking about your “person,” he’s speaking about your “role” in the home. As a human being, a general is not more important than a sergeant. But for an army to function successfully there must be a respected chain of command where one leads and the other follows. God doesn’t want you to squirm under your husband’s leadership, but snuggle up into the security that it should afford you. You can excel in your career yet still allow yourself to enjoy being nurtured, loved, and protected by your husband. Properly understood, your husband’s love and leadership does not rob you of your strength, it simply keeps you in balance by allowing you to reconnect with your softness and femininity. But a word of caution: If you’re looking for a man to be your everything, forget it! God’s the only One who can be everything. By expecting perfection from your husband, you’re asking more from someone else than you can provide yourself. Here’s God’s plan: “She is your equal partner in God’s gift of new life. Treat her as you should so your prayers will not be hindered” (1Pe 3:7 NLT).
