In warfare, you would always see the leader going round to see that things are orderly in and around the camp. Most times, he is the last person to sleep. Well, that is who you are. As a husband, prophet and spiritual leader of your flock, you have to be on continuous patrol of your family territory. You are the man in charge. You are the center of gravity in your family. Everything rises and falls with you. You are the point man on patrol. You have been empowered by the Spirit of God to be on top of your game as a husband and head of your family. You are to have your hands on every aspect of your family demands-spiritual, emotional, mental and physical. You must have adequate information about situations in and around the lives of your flock. Ignorance is not an excuse. Assumption is dangerous. This is why the Scripture says, “Awake, awake”. You have slept enough. You have given so many excuses why you have failed as a husband. It is time for you to rise up and take your place in your home. In Amos 6:1, the Bible tells us that woe unto him that is at ease in Zion.
There are so many distractions out there. There are satanic forces trying to pull your flock far away from God’s plans. There are landmines that satan has set for you to fall. You must be vigilant. The destinies of your wife and children are to be protected and preserved. You hold the key. You are their custodian. Your headship is not ceremonial. It is a calling unto greater responsibilities. But the question is how do I patrol the territory of my family kingdom? There are two ways that you can patrol your family kingdom. The first is spiritual patrol. You must continue to grow in your spiritual walk with the Lord. And you can achieve this through diligent study of the word of God, fervent prayer, fasting and fellowship with other godly husbands. The deeper your spirituality, the greater the sensitivity of your spirit man to pick right and wrong signals and thereby helping you to make right decisions for your flock. Secondly, you patrol physically. This requires you to use your physical senses-eyes, ears and body –to observe the responses, reactions, mannerism or even body language of our flock. God has called you to be in charge of your family, make Him proud.
· Father, by the blood of Jesus Christ, break every siege of the devil on my family.
· Father, by the power in the blood of Jesus Christ, destroy the root of spiritual laziness in my life.
· Father, by the prevailing power in the blood of Jesus Christ, open my eyes to see farther and better in my patrol work.
I am committed to work as the point man on patrol because it is the wisdom of God for me to reign as a good and godly husband in Jesus name. Amen.
