“Husbands, whatever you call your wife is what you’ll see her become because as believers we operate through what Jesus has called us as His bride”
It’s quite important that husbands should learn how to talk to their wives. We need to be constructive and be able to craft what our wives should be in line with what God has called them to be. As a husband you must learn not to call your wife what God has not called her to be. Even when you see her not walking in what you feel she should be it not the best time to begin to bring her low by using wrong words. The truth is women think deeply on what you tell them, they are trapped and overly taken by what they hear. Your wife will actually give in to whatever you call her. You must therefore be skilful enough to be able to craft what your wife is and draw them out from the wells of salvation, knowing that you’ll have the fruit of your words.
Proverbs 12:14 A MAN SHALL BE SATISFIED WITH GOOD BY THE FRUIT OF HIS MOUTH: and the recompence of a man’s hands shall be rendered unto him.
I will need to take you back to the beginning because there are things that men do now that it was not so in the beginning about what a man should call his wife. We saw that God committed naming of things to Adam. God made it so clear that let me see what you will call things then he extended it to his wife.
Genesis 2:19 And out of the ground the LORD God formed every beast of the field, and every fowl of the air; AND BROUGHT THEM UNTO ADAM TO SEE WHAT HE WOULD CALL THEM: AND WHATSOEVER ADAM CALLED EVERY LIVING CREATURE, THAT WAS THE NAME THEREOF.
2:20 AND ADAM GAVE NAMES TO ALL cattle, and to the fowl of the air, and to every beast of the field; but for Adam there was not found an help meet for him.
“God has also brought your wife to you therefore let God see what you will call her”
Note these words
- God brought them to Adam to see what he will call them
- And whatsoever Adam called them that was the name thereof
You see that? God gave him the authority to name things and we saw that what Adam called them that’s what they became. God never questioned what Adam called the creature but God agreed with whatever Adam called those things that God brought to him. You understand now?
“God has committed to the husbands what they will call their wives and whatever they call their wives that is it.”
Adam was the one that called his wife Woman and then he defined it by saying she was taken out of man. Today we call a woman woman because Adam actually called his wife a woman.
“Husbands whatever you call and define your wife to be will last long forever”
Genesis 2:23 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.
“Husbands are the one that gives the full definition of their wives, no man can define their wives better than the husband”
When we understand as husbands that we will have whatever we call our wives to be then we will be careful enough with our words on what we say to our wives. Jesus said you will have what you say…
Mark 11:23 For verily I say unto you, That whosoever shall say unto this mountain, Be thou removed, and be thou cast into the sea; and shall not doubt in his heart, but shall believe that those things which he saith shall come to pass; HE SHALL HAVE WHATSOEVER HE SAITH.
You can change what you have called your wife now, does not matter what you have called her before, you can change it now. A new revelation has come to you so change what you call her. Now what will you call your wife right now?
