A husband and a father is a man’s highest calling. What is the role of a Godly man? How does a Christian woman recognize him when she sees him? Scripture describes the man as leader.
1 Timothy 3:1-16, “Therefore an overseer must be above reproach, the husband of one wife, sober-minded, self-controlled, respectable, hospitable, able to teach, not a drunkard, not violent but gentle, not quarrelsome, not a lover of money. He must manage his own household well, with all dignity keeping his children submissive, for if someone does not know how to manage his own household, how will he care for God’s church?” …
The man is to show honor to his wife found in,
1 Peter 3:7, “Likewise, husbands, live with your wives in an understanding way, showing honor to the woman as the weaker vessel, since they are heirs with you of the grace of life, so that your prayers may not be hindered.” The man, the husband, father, and servant leader is held accountable to God. When Adam and Eve first sinned in the garden, God came looking for Adam! The one He left in charge. Adam blamed the woman. That was unacceptable to God and in Genesis 3:23, “The Lord God banished Adam from the Garden to work the ground from which he had been taken.”
Likewise wives are called to submit to their husbands.
Yes submit. But not to just any man, a godly man, that’s taking his direction from God because he’s only as good as the resources he draws from. I know Some women don’t like to hear that, however the bible is clear, and God does not change! “He’s the same today yesterday and forever more.”
Malachi 3:6. “I, the lord your God do not change!” Colossians 3:18, “Wives, submit to your husbands, as is fitting in to the lord.” Even Nature knows a female needs a strong man.
When eagles get ready to mate, and by the way eagles can only mate with other eagles, and not just any eagle, the most capable eagle. Able to sustain a wife and family. So the ritual goes as follows; the female eagle flies to the highest peak, and drops a stick mid-air, the male eagle capable of getting the stick is the one who gets to mate with the female eagle, sound easy? Not so, there can be only one winner.
My husband is a Christian man, a praying man, he’s also a good money manager. He’s always thinking about and preparing for our needs months down the road. He’s very rational, reasonable, and self-controlled. We pray together almost daily, usually in the morning to pray for our day. We take our concerns to God! Because worrying is no good! I need him to be strong for me! The bible says you’ll know him by his fruit! He told me when we were dating I want to honor you, I don’t want sex until we’re married! I could see that he was a very blessed man! And a true Christian that practices what he preaches. I said to him you’re the real deal baby!
Of course there were other things, like the way he treated me. He knows HOW to treat a woman! He treats me in such a way that I can’t help but surrender to the masculine energy!!! He has a good heart and sincerely wants to do his best! If a man does not do his best toward his woman his prayers are hindered 1 Peter 3:7 As a man do you ever wonder why your prayers are not being answered? It’s because God is watching, and He knows the intents of the heart. However, “the steps of a good man are ordered by the Lord.” God will lead him to success, prosperity, good health, a good woman,etc…. There’s nothing sexier than a man on top of his game!
3 John 1:2, “Beloved, I wish above all things for you to prosper and be in health even as thy soul prospers!”
Authors Note: I would be remiss if I did not tell you that these types of men are rare these days! They are NOT around every corner! He’s a rare and special find. The kind of man only God can bring! So “be anxious for nothing but by prayer and supplication let your request be made known to God.” Then prepare yourself to be found. Work on yourself!!!!! Whatever areas in your life need fixing, whether it be the inside, the outside, both! Ask God to show you what needs to be fixed in your life. I had a lot that needed to be worked out before receiving my husband, then God proved to me His word. “Seek ye first the kingdom of God and all of these things shall be added!!!!!” He did indeed add everything I needed when I looked to HIM!!!!!!
