Daniel 11:37 tells us the man of sin, or man of lawlessness, will have no regard for the desire of women. Genesis 3:16 tells us the desire of women will be their husbands. So in these last days powers of darkness are working to downgrade the desire of women (men) and they are doing it by upgrading women.
This may sound course but it really isn’t. God’s plan is for the man to be head over the woman. A woman is not allowed to usurp authority over a man. This is not a slam on women, it’s a divine order that, if followed, both men and women will find peace, security, and love in its highest fashion. It is the will of God.
“Let every person be in subjection to the governing authorities. For there is no authority except from God, and those which exist are established by God. Therefore he who resists authority has opposed the ordinance of God; and they who have opposed will receive condemnation upon themselves,” Romans 13:1-2.
The town I live in has a population of less than 800. Everybody knows everybody. We’ve been here a little less than three years and already I’ve noticed people we’ve seen in church come speeding up behind us on the road, only to slow down when they see it’s me. More and more people here are becoming aware of the respect I have for God. It tickles me when I see this happen but it also saddens me. Christians don’t know what they’re missing as they speed around ignoring the ordinance of God.
Only those who can be trusted with small things are fit to be entrusted with large things. And it’s a very small thing to drive within the speed limits; it requires very little to do this. However, although it’s a very small thing to do, it reaps large benefits, benefits that resound with communion with the Holy Spirit, abiding in the Vine, and access to the secrets of God.
As you drive down the road and endeavor to stay within the speed limit, acknowledge that you’re doing it out of respect for the Lord. Remind yourself that you’re doing it because it’s His ordinance. You are obeying Him. You are denying self and submitting to God. If you do this you will soon notice that your relationship with Him is becoming sweeter and sweeter; you will begin to feel closer to Him because you are walking by the Spirit and doing the will of God. And if you continue being obedient in this small area you will find that He will give you more and more responsibility and your relationship with Him will become more intimate. I’m very serious about this. We must be obedient in all areas.
Of course, there are exceptions, such as, emergencies. I’m speaking of everyday normal driving in town and on the highways.
