Daughter of God, go for a man who’s submitted to your Father, yea, you are totally allowed to be a daddy’s girl about this and He’s going to be so proud of you because that’s what He wants for you ( II Corinthians 6:14).
And oh, the perks!
A man who is submitted to God practically allows himself to be led by the Spirit of God, he chooses to live and do things God’s way and the fruit of Spirit will definitely not fall far from him.
“… the fruit of the [Holy] Spirit [the work which His presence within accomplishes] is love, joy (gladness), peace, patience (an even temper, forbearance), kindness, goodness (benevolence), faithfulness, gentleness (meekness, humility), self-control (self-restraint, continence)…” Galatians 5:22-23 (AMPC)
See how the message version puts it;
“But what happens when we live God’s way? He brings gifts into our lives, much the same way that fruit appears in an orchard—things like affection for others, exuberance about life, serenity. We develop a willingness to stick with things, a sense of compassion in the heart, and a conviction that a basic holiness permeates things and people. We find ourselves involved in loyal commitments, not needing to force our way in life, able to marshal and direct our energies wisely.”
Wow! Affection, compassion, commitment… Wouldn’t you just love a man who consistently displays these?
A man who loves and is submitted to Jesus, has a fine, no scratch that, has the finest example on how to love you and you will enjoy the effects of his relationship with God, trust me girl, you want this kind of man, this is the kind of man you want to submit to.
If you’ve got one, appreciate him and keep growing in the Lord together.
If you haven’t got one yet, wait on God for him, trust me, it will be worth the wait, for “God proves to be good to the man who passionately waits, to the woman who diligently seeks.” (Lamentations 3:25)
