Main Scriptures: Heb. 3:2-3
More Scriptures: Ex.2:21, Gal.5:23, Nu.12:3
Who was faithful to him that appointed him, as also Moses was faithful in all his house. For this man was counted worthy of more glory than Moses, in as much as he who hath builded the house hath more honour than the house (Heb.3:2-3). As a husband and the prophet over your wife and children, do you know that the same grace that made Moses to lead over 3 million people is also available to you and even much more? Moses received the assignment to lead the people of Israel through the wilderness and across the Red sea. He contended with followers of different character and tendencies. He prayed when others did not show interest.
There was a time Moses went to meet with the Lord in fellowship. When he returned, he met his followers worshiping a brazen image. He gave his all for the sake of his people, yet the people would prefer to remain in Egypt where they would eat cucumber and die as slaves. In all of these, God summed up the life of Moses as the meekest man on the surface of the earth. In Heb.3:5, the Scripture said, and Moses verily was faithful in all his house, as a servant, for a testimony of those things which were to be spoken after. As the head of your family, you are a failure if you cannot lead your wife and children. You have no excuse to give if your wife and children fail. If God could testify about the leadership capacity of Moses, the husband of Zipporah (Ex.2:21), you must have a much greater testimonies that would be told long after you have left this world. But for you to do greater works than Moses did as a husband, you must ask the Holy Spirit to empower you to be humble.
You must understand that as a man and one in position of authority and control, the temptation to want to think that you know it all is and will always be there. It is called ego and it breeds pride. As it is written, the Lord gives grace to the humble and despises the proud. So if you want to enjoy supernatural grace for a triumphant leadership, you must be humble in heart. Secondly, you must maintain uninterrupted relationship with your Caller, God. He called you into the office of the husbandhood, hence daily contact with Him terminates frustration.
· Father, by Your Spirit, help me to maintain a regular and heartfelt fellowship with You.
· Father, lay it in my heart to recognize You as my all in all.
· Father, by the power in the blood of Jesus Christ, deliver me from the hold of discouragement and pride.
I walk in the footsteps of Jesus Christ and will do much more than Moses did as a good and godly husband in Jesus name. Amen.
