Eph 5:22-23, 25

22 Wives, submit to your husbands as to the Lord, 23 because the husband is the head of the wife as also Christ is the head of the church…25 Husbands, love your wives just as Christ loved the church and gave himself for her NET

Penny and Lee both met in the Christian university they attended and became very good friends and eventually got married. One of the surest things they both knew was that their marriage was absolutely the will of God. They both knew they were led and there were several confirmations from God; Coupled with the fact that they were very good friends who understood each other perfectly.

Unfortunately, five years down the line, they began to have serious problems in their marriage and were even beginning to consider separation and probably divorce.

Their counselor discovered they were not living according to God's precept for marriage; Penny never at any point saw Lee as her head in the relationship. Lee was quite selfish and even competitive against his wife...their marriage was falling apart.

Even if you hear an audible voice from God concerning your marriage and you don’t go about it according to God's principle, that marriage will have problems. God in His infinite wisdom chose the husband to be head of the household. He has also commanded the husband to love his wife in an uncommon way (as Christ loves the church). This kind of love is sacrificial, it is patient and kind, it forgives, it gives allowances for imperfections; understanding that the wife is a weaker vessel, it causes Him to intercede for his wife as Christ intercedes for the church.

Go into today determined to structure your home on all of God's principles concerning marriage that you know.

Prayer:heavenly father, I thank you for your grace. I pray you teach me your ways that I may walk in your truth in every aspect of my life, in Jesus name. Amen
