Our example Sarah, stayed in subjection to Abraham, covered his insecurity through submission, and the outcome because of her obedience was well.
Abraham and Sarah are traveling through a foreign land. Abraham comes up with the idea for Sarah to say that she is his sister because he is afraid the king of the foreign land will kill him and take his wife Sarah to be his wife because Sarah was beautiful to look at (Genesis 20:2-18).
We see that Sarah submitted to her husband’s word to tell Abimelek, the king that she was only his sister, and not his wife. After her submission to him, Abimelek took her into his house because she was fine, so he had other plans for her as if she was single. God, the one in whom Sarah trusted to cover both her and her husband, and to correct Abraham her head when he is wrong covered them both.1
