You Need Your Husband

God formed Adam from the dust of the earth and eventually God noticed that his man was alone. God gave Adam a couple of assignments after he placed him in the Garden of Eden: vision and work.  However, Adam was without help, aid and support. God had a problem. You were His solution!

And the Lord God said, ‘It is not good that man should be alone; I will make him a helper comparable to him.’
— Genesis 2:18

Ladies, you were created for a unique purpose! You are a perfect complement for a husband. You come with the necessary internal equipment to provide support and aid. In the Book of Proverbs, known as the book of wisdom, the word “wisdom” is referred to as a “she.” I do not think that is a coincidence. You are full of intuition, discernment, intelligence and insight. You see things differently. You were created to help. Do you know who else in scripture was sent to this earth to help? That’s right, the Holy Spirit.
In our society, there is a lot of conversations about women and men no longer needing each other. I think this attitude is a direct attack on the identity and purpose of the marriage union. Women need men and men need women.  We are better together. A couple of weeks ago, I wrote to the men and told them that they need their wives. Today, I want to share how you need your husband.

Then the rib which the Lord God had taken from man He made into a woman, and He brought her to the man. And Adam said: ‘This is now bone of my bones And flesh of my flesh; She shall be called Woman, Because she was taken out of Man.’
— Genesis 2:22

In the beginning, God made the woman out of the man. Then God brought the woman to the man and the man named her. This is important because whatever you name, you are responsible for. That’s why it’s customary for a man to give his wife his last name in marriage. If he names you, he claims you. If he claims you, he is responsible for you.
Young ladies, do not be so quick to say yes to a man’s engagement proposal and receive his name. Make sure he has vision, is working, and can supply what you need.  
Wives, don’t be deceived, you need your husband. You need someone to take care of you. I know you were probably raised to take care of yourself but what you were taught is not fully true. God designed a man to be responsible for you. The greatest desire of a good husband is to take care of his woman.  A good husband brings stability and an inherent responsibility to take care of you. Let him lead you, guide you, cherish you, provide for you, protect you, love you, and sustain you. He provides emotional stability for you. He is a strong, firm foundation for you and your family. You can depend on him. There are a lot of stats that confirm the importance of a man living in a household. You need your husband.
Honor and respect your husband. Tell him that you love him. Show him that his presence is important to you. You need your husband and he needs you.
What can you do to show your husband that you need him and respect him?
