When a woman submits to her husband’s leadership, she paves the way for the Holy Spirit to take over her husband’s heart (1 Peter 3:1). And when the Holy Spirit takes over her husband’s heart, guess what “the probable” outcome will be? Genesis 1:2 says, “the earth was formless and empty, darkness was over the surface of the deep, and the Spirit of God was hovering over the waters.” –
The Holy Spirit comes and hovers first, then the Word “Let there be” follows and the ultimate will of God, that says, “Husbands, love your wife as Christ loved the church” takes root. That is why submission is not a sign of weakness but a sign of strength.
But how can a wife submit to her husband unless she is led by the Spirit of God? She can’t. (Galatians 5:16) ///
