It Was Never God’s Will For Us to Marry Into Bondage, But to Marry Into the Advancement of His Kingdom.
We began this series speaking about the importance of trusting in our husbands, while submitting to their lead even in times where they do not express surety in how they are leading. Well, that isn’t such a bad situation for the woman who marries a man who is already following Christ, because a man who is already following Christ can be corrected by God when he is wrong.
Thus, the whole family is covered because both the wife and the husband are committed to the Lord. However, when only the wife is saved, this will be a greater challenge. It becomes a gut wrenching difficulty to submit to a man who is not a man of God. We do not have to allow ourselves to go through that additional pain if we choose well. This is why it is so important as single women of God to develop our relationships with God allowing Him to mature us and to lead us in our decisions by His word.1
