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 to bring the ultimate will of God that reads: “Husbands, love your wife as Christ loved the church.” 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) ///
