“For the husband is the head of the wife, as Christ also is the head of the church, He Himself being the Savior of the body” (Ephesians 5:23).
Sinful man uses order to lord it over others. God uses order to keep things in harmony. Do not take the things of the Lord and pervert them but use them as they have been created to be used. The man is the head. Thus says the Lord. The world says we are all the same and each to his own. If you decide to do this, so be it. If the Lord decides, then walk in His counsel and learn what this means. The man is to be the tie breaker, that’s what headship means. No more, no less.
You have set everything in its course. Those in this world continue in their rebellion against You and the order You have set. Teach me more of Your order Lord in order that I would learn how life was meant to be lived. Guide me according to Your precepts so that I would now and always look to You for wisdom. Let me be in the order You have set and help me live in the way You intend.
Lord, the world hates Your order. All around me I see where You are defied. Lead me into humility, that place where I simply obey all that You command. Guide me Lord so that where I am to be subject, I willingly follow. Where I am to lead, help me to do so in love and with humility. In all things, lead me to follow the example You have set that I may become like You in every way. Amen.
