Women were created for Adam as a "helper". The Holy Spirit is also called a "helper".

Genesis 2:18, "Then the Lord God said, 'It is not good for man to be alone; I will make him a helper suitable for him."

John 14:16, "And I will ask the Father and He will give you another Helper, that He might be with you forever."

The Holy Spirit was given to us, so was Eve given to Adam.

Romans 5:5, "God has been poured out within our hearts through the Holy Spirit who was given to us."
Wives cannot carry prayers of the husband directly to God, and they cannot give gifts. Only the Holy Spirit can do that.

But the wife can be like the Holy Spirit in many ways.

John 16:13, "But when the Spirit of Truth comes, He will guide you into all the truth; for He will not speak on His own initiative, but whatever He hears, He will speak; and He will disclose it to you what is to come."

John 16:14, "He will take of Mine and disclose it to you."

Mathew 27:19, "While sitting on the judgement seat, his wife sent to him saying, 'have nothing to do with that righteous man; for last night I suffered greatly in a dream because of Him."

The role of the wife is to "help" the husband to see spiritual truths that he may not have otherwise seen.

John 16:8, "And when He comes, he will convict the world concerning sin, and righteousness and judgment."

Psalm 119:75, "I know O Lord that Thy judgments are righteous."

Galations 6:1, "Brethren, even if a man is caught in any trespass, you who are spiritual, restore such a one in a spirit of gentleness."

The role of the wife is to "help" her husband to see where he must change. He must be humble enough to listen, accept and then change. Obviously she must also be humble and ready to hear where she should also change. The wife will be more "helpful" if she listens to her husband and changes accordingly.

The Holy Spirit never argues with the Father and the wife must never argue with her husband.

1 John 1:7, "If we walk in the light as He is in the light, we have fellowship with one another and the blood of Jesus purifies us from all sin."

Ephesians 5:8-10, "Now you are light in the Lord; walk as children of light (for the fruit of the light consists in all goodness and righteousness and truth), trying to learn what is pleasing to the Lord. And do not participate in the unfruitful deeds of darkness, but instead expose them."

The role of the wife is to "help" her husband by being the light in his life. Being humble enough to expose herself and being brave enough to expose him.

Galations 5:22-23, "But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, self-control."

I Corinthians 13:4, "Love is patient, love is kind, and is not jealous, love does not brag, and is not arrogant, does not act unbecomingly; it does not seek its own, is not provoked, does not take into account a wrong suffered, does not rejoice in unrighteousness, but rejoices with the truth; bears all things. Love never fails."

DOES NOT BRAG - the Holy Spirit never talks about Himself

LOVE IS NOT ARROGANT - the Holy Spirit knows His role
James 4:16, "As it is, you boast in your arrogance, all such boasting is evil."

LOVE DOES NOT ACT UNBECOMINGLY - the Holy Spirit came as a dove
1 Peter 3:1-4, "In the same way, you wives, be submissive to your own husbands so that even if any of them are disobedient to the word, they may be won without a word by the behavior of their wives, as they observe your chaste and respectful behavior. And let not your adornment be merely external - braiding of the hair, wearing gold jewelry, or putting on dresses; but let it be the hidden person of the heart with the imperishable quality of a gentle and quiet spirit, which is precious in the sight of God."

Judges 14, "Get her for me, she looks good to me."

I believe she looked good not physically but because she had a gentle and quiet spirit.

DOES NOT SEEK ITS OWN - the Holy Spirit seeks to do the will of Jesus

I Corinthians 10:24, "Let no one seek his own will but that of his neighbor."
I Corinthians 10:33, "I also please all men in all things, not seeking my own profit but the profit of the many, that they may be saved."

Ephesians 5:22,23, "Wives be subject to your own husbands, as to the Lord. For the husband is the head of the wife, as Christ also is the head of the church, He himself being the Savior of the the Body."

The role of a wife to "help" her husband is to submit in humility.

There cannot be two heads in a family. This will be like a siamese twin with two heads. Which direction will the body take if two heads are deciding? There will be confusion!

LOVE NEVER FAILS - the Father has sealed us with the Holy Spirit.

PATIENCE - the Holy Spirit is patient with us and is not discouraged. The Holy Spirit doesn't become angry over small issues (who cares if your husband leaves the dirty towel on the bathroom floor).

KINDNESS - He Himself is kind to ungrateful and evil men (Lk 6:35). A wife needs to show kindness at all times to her husband even if she doen't think he deserves it. She should welcome him home every time with joy and kindness.

GOODNESS - everything God does is for our good. Everything a wife does should be for the good of her husband and others.

FAITHFULNESS - God always keeps His promises. A wife should always tell her husband the truth and should always keep her promises.

SELF-CONTROLLED - God cannot contradict the Truth. A wife must be able to control her emotions and her way of speaking so that she continue always to be a helpful to her husband and not make his life more difficult.

JEALOUS - God is jealous in a good way. A wife should not be jealous.

Women must be helpful according to the Word of God!
