Is the husband the head of the home?
Job 1:5 And it was so, when the days of their feasting were gone about, that Job sent and sanctified them, and rose up early in the morning, and offered burnt offerings according to the number of them all: for Job said, It may be that my sons have sinned, and cursed God in their hearts. Thus did Job continually.
Aa I read this verse this morning I wonder if the fathers of today would be more faithful in their churches if they were under this law and followed what Job did?
God doesn't change man is still the head of the house hold he is still the leader and is expected to be the role model for his family.
If that is the case in our family standards should be higher and the hearts wouldn't be broken.We need more men to take the position of leadership back in our families.
Job was tested and heartbroken only because God wanted to try him to prove Jobs love.I would rather know our sufferings are sent from God for our hearts to be tried rather than the chastening of God for our sinful living.
We go out soulwinning every week and the men most of the time out number the women it shows that men are taking their position,God never intended for the womean to be the Spiritual one in the family over the husband.Its not the place of a women to lead,Women are weaker for a reason it was Eve that sinned first.Women have caused more men to fall.A womens Spirit sets the atmosphere for the husband when a man comes home and the women is contentious the whole family is.A husband should want to run to get home after a days work otherwise something is not right,
My hope and prayer is that God will give my husband wisdom to lead that my submission will bring God joy that will give us strength.I would rather submit and obey my husband no matter if he is right or wrong if its not unGodly.
Sarah obeyed Abraham even though Abraham was wrong.In all cases you cant have two leaders.I Wonder how many wives can tell their husbands to curse God?
