Yesterday, our Teacher, the Holy Spirit, opened our eyes to see the need for every husband, who is the head of the family to operate in divine wisdom. It is not as the world gives. It is not as your culture gives. It is also not as your tradition gives. In verse 15 of Jas.3, it says that prevailing wisdom does not come from the earth. It is as God gives. In Jas.3:13, the Scriptures ask, who is a wise man? And in verse 17, it describes the access to the wisdom that will make any husband wise. It says but the wisdom that is from above is first pure, then peaceable, gentle, and easy to be entreated, full of mercy and good fruits, without partiality and without hypocrisy. When you operate in His wisdom in the way you handle your relationship with your flocks, the way you approach issues that concern them, the way you talk to and with them and in any other areas, you will enjoy peace and godly excitement in your fold. But how do I walk in this winning wisdom as the head of my family? First, there must be willingness in your heart. You must be willing (Dan.1:8). Until, you purpose in your heart to be a wise leader, you will not achieve anything meaningful in your life as the spiritual head of your home. Everything to make you win as a husband begins in your heart. It is when you have sincerely settled it in your heart that God will extend His grace to you. Secondly, you must give attention to God’s principles and instructions as contained in the Word of God (Ps.1:2). It is the quality of attention that you give to the commandments of God that determines the quality of the health of your relationship with your flocks. Thirdly, you must pray for God’s grace to put His instructions to work (Matt.7:7). You are a prevailing husband. You must continue to engage the wisdom of God in your life to enjoy a fruitful relationship with your flocks.
· Father, deliver me from the valley of indecision. Help me to be steadfast with my flocks
· Father, give attention to my prayer for wisdom
· Father, empower me with Your kind of wisdom at work in the life of Isaac
I will win by the wisdom of God at work in my life because I have been empowered by God to be a good and godly husband in Jesus glorious name. Amen.
