Genesis 19:26 but Lot’s wife looked behind her and she turned into a pillar of salt.
Wow, just like that Lot’s wife was stuck, see this is what happens when we don’t obey God. The angels of God had to take ahold of Lot and his family and literally bring them out of the city and gave strict instructions to not look back because if they did there would be consequences, there is always consequences for our disobedience.
Why was not Lot’s wife walking with him? Why was she the only one disobedient? Did her daughters see their mother turn into a pillar of Salt? If so they continued walking, many time God has to make an example out of someone in order to get your attention.Why didn’t they say anything? Lot did not know his wife was gone until he reached their destination!
If you’re walking with your husband that means you’re one. This is what’s wrong with some women today, they don’t want to allow their husbands to lead. They think they are so independent as to where they don’t need to listen to their husbands, they’ve allowed others to speak into their minds about their marriages and so forth and the information you have been given is inacurate. God has given strict instructions on marriage and we must follow them to the letter in order for our marriages to be successful, I am not saying that we won’t go through some rough patches, I am just saying if we follow the complete instructions of God we will be victorious. God said that it is not fit for man to be alone, so women He created you especially for man, so stop shucking and jiving and walk with your husband.
Women we need to repent today because of how we have neglected to do what we need to do for our spouses, we should be doing all that we can for our marriages. Our children, parents and friends do not come before our husbands. We must cook and keep our homes clean, we must have our children settled when our spouses come home, especially if you are a stay at home mom, if not then you should proceed accordingly, the house and children should should not be in disarray. In some instances the man likes to cook and that is fine and well but if he does this then you should clean up, iron and whatever else to keep you house in order. I am not telling you to be a slave, I am telling you to take care of business. Make yourself desirable, make yourself available, never be too tired for intimacy. Walk with your spouse and not behind them!
Let’s remember many of our spouses are not Christians so please don’t spend more time at church than you do with your spouse, please don’t cook for the church and have not fixed anything for your spouse, please don’t call others and talk about your spouse, don’t down your spouse, don’t compare them with others. And if your spouse has an idea and it doesn’t seem right to you pray pray pray and pray some more. We’re trying to draw our spouses to God not away from Him. Take everything in your marriage to the throne room, God is concerned about us and wants us to be happy, He said that He will not with hold no good thing from us.
This is what happened to Lot’s wife, her heart and mind was in Sodom, she loved her family, friends and stuff but she loved the sin in the city more than she did God. Lot’s wife just couldn’t let go and this caused her to be stuck!
Always look ahead and don’t look back, walk with your spouse and not behind them.
Forever His Servant,
