Angels are watching

Get ALL the benefits of marriage.  There are so many benefits that come with being married.  There are so many benefits with taking your husband's last name.  My husband and I are together because God brought us together to become husband and wife.  I love my husband dearly, but God showed me when I got married to take advantage of all the benefits of being married.  There are legal and spiritual benefits, when you choose to practice marriage according to how God has designed it to work.  That means the husband is the head.  When you submit and come under your husband's authority, not only do you have legal rights that come into play but there are also spiritual rights that become yours. 

1 Corinthians 11 (NLT)

7 A man should not wear anything on his head when worshiping, for man is made in God’s image and reflects God’s glory. And woman reflects man’s glory. For the first man didn’t come from woman, but the first woman came from man. And man was not made for woman, but woman was made for man. 10 For this reason, and because the angels are watching, a woman should wear a covering on her head to show she is under authority.[e] -  Don't see this as a limitation, see it as a liberty
 

(New King James)

  For a man indeed ought not to cover his head, since he is the image and glory of God; but woman is the glory of man. For man is not from woman, but woman from man. Nor was man created for the woman, but woman for the man. 10 For this reason the woman ought to have a symbol of authority on her head, because of the angels
 
Please don't get caught up in the literal sense of head covering here, but look at the spiritual implications.  First of all, this word says that "angels are watching" us.  Isn't that a blessing!  Angels are watching us.  As women, do we want to have authority in the heavenly places?  I believe we do, since Ephesians 6:12 tells us that we do not wrestle against flesh and blood, but against power and principalities, against the rulers of darkness of this age, against hosts of wickedness in the heavenly places.  Yes, we as women want authority in the heavenly places.  Well, angels are looking at your "head".  Do they see a symbol of authority on your head?  Married women, submitting to your husbands will give you a symbol of authority on your head.  Single women, make sure you have a church home and you are under the covering of a pastor, so when the angels look down on your head, they see authority.  If you want to have authority in the heavenly places, than the angels need to see authority when they look down at your head.  Remember we are talking spiritual authority.
