Today is Day Twenty-six of “The Respect Dare” and we are fear, faith, and submission.
“I appeal to you, brothers, in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ, that all of you agree with one another so that there may be no divisions among you and that you may be perfectly united in mind and thought.” ~ 1 Corinthians 1:10 NIV
Oh, this is such a hard area for so many women. I’ve been one of those women in the past who struggled with allowing my husband to lead. I still find sometimes that I need to get out of the way.
But, Nina is correct. You can only have one CEO in a business and it’s the same way in marriage. God has designed marriage so that our husbands are called to lead. Yes, I know that this can be scary for many women. But, we need to determine why this is for ourselves. Why are YOU afraid to let your husband lead? We are called to submit to our husbands “as unto Christ”. Is there anything that Christ would ask you to do that you would really refuse?
Today, take time to seek the Lord in prayer about allowing your husband to be CEO of your family. Ladies, there is nothing more freeing for me than to let the buck stop with my husband. I love letting him lead… most of the time. And those times that I don’t, it’s because I have something I need to work out with God.
Heavenly Father, you are mighty and holy and worthy of all of our praise and adoration. Your ways are not ours and we often bristle with pride over things we do not understand. Submission can be a very scary thing for women. I pray that you would help me to submit to my husband in all areas and to let him rise up and lead.
Help me to be teachable and understanding. Unite me in spirit with my husband and help him to shine in his role as CEO of our family. Thank you again for all that you are doing in and through me.
In Jesus’ Name… Amen!
