“And Elimelech Naomi’s husband died; and she was left, and her two sons.” (Ruth 1:3).
The husband was the first casualty. The husband typifies the head. He represents the lord in a family. “For the husband is the head of the wife, even as Christ is the head of the church: and he is the saviour of the body.” (Ephesians 5:23).
One of the things the devil first attacks in us is the Head anytime we leave the presence of God to join ourselves to the world. When the head is destroyed, the entire body is automatically destroyed. The head is known for reasoning, orderliness, kingship…. So, when the faculty used for reasoning is destroyed, then such an one becomes vile in his thoughts. The major problem in the world is the problem of logical and illogical reasoning. All of a sudden, something that wasn’t right five years ago becomes acceptable and adjudged right because a vast number of people think it to be good and have become daily activity, so, the government incoporates it into her law or constitution.
It’s so obvious that we’ve lost our head. We’ve lost orderliness. We’ve lost kingship. “In those days there was no king in Israel: every man did that which was right in his own eyes.” (Judges 21:25).
God is our King. He is the Lord of our lives and so, we must not lose His kingship over our lives, hence, we will be given to ‘reprobate minds’. When our life is without God, our life will be without Grace and it is the Grace of our Lord Jesus that makes us free from all unrighteousness. Don’t be confortable without adequate relationship with the Lord, let Him speak to you on a daily basis even when you speak to Him. God bless you.
