God’s order for wives

BethanySMC - Friday, 21 September 2012 12:48

 Who we ought to be & what we ought to do according to letters of Apostle Peter.

Likewise, ye wives, be in subjection to your own husbands; that, if any obey not the word, they also may without the word be won by the conversation of the wives; While they behold your chaste conversation coupled with fear. 1 Peter 3:1-2

The word of God, concerning women’s place in the society, family and church has been under tremendous attack from the enemy of all truth and the enemy of our souls – the devil. In the last 100 years, the devil succeeded the most to merchandise his evil and deceitful agenda. The world and even the church bought his lies and set themselves in array, battling against God’s word, trying to prove God’s design and intentions concerning women wrong.

Many who have bought devil’s lies are suffering the consequences of disobedience; yet, when you are carried by a current, there are not many options. The devil truly comes like a flood to destroy morals, families and God’s purposes by soliciting women on his side.

In Isaiah 59:19 we read: When the enemy shall come in like a flood, the Spirit of the LORD shall lift up a standard against him. I pray, God’s Spirit to enable us to stand against this flood, to work convictions in our heart concerning God’s order, to anoint our eyes so we may see the beauty of God’s design.

A wife’s subjection to her husband is essential for a healthy marriage and for God’s blessing to be upon their family. It is one of the essential elements that influence the children to obey her and respect her desires and wishes. More is caught than taught. A home prospers under the management of a wise and submissive wife. The hearts of her husband and children are won without mush words, tears, stress and anxiety.

One of the curses that are inherited with an independent wife is discontent, insecure children, along with a tense relationship between the husband and wife. One of the recent secular researches shows a direct link between immodest, costly, outward adorning that women put on themselves, and discontentment and unsatisfaction these women experience in their life and relationships. This satisfaction and rest is impossible outside of God’s order. It seems to me that day after day, the devil increases pressure on women and laughs at them as millions pursue after marriage to find satisfaction and a happy life apart from God’s will. Despite the ever-growing deadly diseases, chronic illnesses, broken homes, mental issues that are produced as a result of disobedience and violation of God’s order for women, many women just refuse to see that God’s design is simply the best!

Show me a wife of a meek and quiet character that fears God and chooses to honor and be in subjection to her husband, and you will see a true home where love dwells, a home where it is pleasant to visit or live in. You will not hear screaming, nor see fighting there, you will not see much of the costly stuff in her closet, nor piles of makeup on her face, under God’s order – there is no need for makeup!
