Allow Him To Lead

When you are in step with the world, you are out of step with God.

God's ways are best.  He has proven this to me time and time again.  His Word clearly spells out the wife's and the husband's role.  The wife is a companion, a mother, and a homemaker.  A husband's role is a leader, a provider, and a protector.

The fourth secret in winning your husband's love according to The Secrets of Fascinating Womanhood is to allow him to be the leader. This is a position created by God for him.

In Genesis, God said to Eve,

"He {her husband} shall rule over you..."

and to Adam he said,

"By the sweat of your face you shall obtain your food, until you return to the ground from which you were taken."

Marriage is an institution created by God where the husband leads and the wife follows.  The man is the head, the ship's captain of the family.  The women are his first mate and the heart of the family.

Marriage is a complimentary partnership.  Each has a different role but each  person fills in the circle.  Your husband's God-given role is to lead you and provide for you.  This is God's ideal to aim for.

The more we women take over a man's role, the less masculine he feels and the more masculine we become. 

Many women work for more luxuries {cell phones, cable, eating out, vacations, bigger homes, more cars, etc.}.  Luxuries never bring the lasting happiness we think they will.  Only living God's laws bring us lasting happiness.

Happiness and true love are found in warm, affectionate relationships, not in houses or where you live.

Many husbands want their wives to work.  Show him Scripture that describes each spouse's role and then pray.  Truth is powerful and has a certain ring to it that is hard to deny!

Secret #1 ~ Accept him as he is
