Ephesians 5:21 Amplified Version

being subject to one another out of reverence for Christ.

Walking in the realm of the unseen enables us to be obedient when it seems difficult – when it requires humility. Everyone has a role to play in the Body of Christ, in the home, in the church, and all the various institutions. God is a God of order and Christ has designed the order for the Church – giving each one grace to function in their roles. We must know our roles in everything we are a part of and submit to those who are responsible in each given situation. In the home, wives are responsible for certain things and husbands need to submit to them in those situations to allow them to fulfill their responsibilities. Even though the husband is the head of the house as far as his position goes, there are times he needs to submit to his wife. Humility will allow us to submit when we need to. This affects our ability to walk in the unseen realm of God. It helps us trust God to take care of everything that concerns us even when we have to allow Him to work through someone we think is not as smart as we are.
