As the head of the family, God has ordained you to lead your wife and children in the fear of the Lord. That is your ultimate task towards God and man. However, you need supernatural empowerment to carry out your leadership functions effectively and maximally. A lot of husbands are operating below their capacities because of the lack of the anointing of the Holy Spirit. The Person of the Holy Spirit is your enabler. He has the capacity to transform a weakling to a strong and vibrant person. Just as it happened in Acts chapter 2, when He helped the Apostles and made them fire brand for Jesus, you can seek His help. And surely He is able and willing to help you. It is also free. When a husband lacks the anointing, he begins to make foolish decisions which may adversely affect his wife and children. Oil, which is a medium through which the Spirit of God manifests Himself, is available to every husband who wants to reign as a king in his family. The anointing is what gives credibility and power to the voice of husbands to command respect and honour from their wives and children. How much influence you are able to exert upon your family is determined by how much of God’s life is at work in you.
As the head of the family and spiritual leader in your home, the anointing of God on your life should eliminate any friction that you may have with your wife and children, because the Spirit of God is the Wisdom of God. And when you operate on the frequency of the wisdom of God, you will be able to handle every challenge that comes your way. So if you observe that you are unable to resolve issues that arise between your wife and yourself, without telling everyone including your family members about it, then you lack the oil to lead your wife and children. You are the spiritual leader of your home. You carry on your inside the very life of God, which is divine wisdom personified. And according to Scriptures, the wisdom of God is past finding out. The wisdom of God is unquestionable and limitless in glory. But for you to operate God’s kind of wisdom that makes you an anointed husband, there certain demands that you must subscribed to.
· Father, by Your Spirit, deliver me from every power of sin and pride.
· Father, by Your Spirit, anoint my head afresh for fresh unction and authority.
· Father, by Your Spirit, help me to function greatly in my office as a good and godly husband.
I am anointed by the Holy Ghost with power to function as a good and godly husband to my wife and children in Jesus name. Amen.
