AS A HUSBAND AND THE HEAD OF YOUR FAMILY, THERE ARE SO MANY THINGS THAT ARE CALLING FOR YOUR ATTENTION, BUT YOU MUST BE STRONG AND REMAIN FOCUSED AND NOT BE DISTRACTED. This is the secret to a victorious life and unending fruitfulness. He says “Let your eyes be single”. As the head of the family, when your eyes are single you see very well and you will be empowered to take quality decision about your family. It will also increase your confidence level in prayers. Your call to the position of a husband by God (Gen. 2:18, 24) is to bless your wife and children. As a husband, you occupy a prophetic office that empowers you to bless your family. In verse 55 of Genesis 31, Laban rose up early in the morning, kissed his children and blessed them. Abraham blessed Isaac and he became great. Isaac blessed Jacob and he became a giant in Israel. The great word spoken by a husband and father, Abraham, brought out great and useful children.
As a husband you carry the power to bless your children for a better tomorrow. When you bless your children, you deposit the seed of greatness in their lives. Your word is so powerful that it can make or mar the destinies of your children. When you bless them they grow up to become a blessing to you in your old age. They also become a blessing to their community. When you bless your children you’re sowing the seed of greatness in them. But you cannot achieve this when you allow your life to be distracted by alcohol, drugs, unhelpful associations and relationships, and the strange woman. However, for you to remain focused and not be distracted from the tasks that God has committed to you as the spiritual leader and head of your home, you must be in Christ. When you are in Christ, He becomes the centre of your existence. He becomes the reason for your living. And if that happens, your life will be influenced by His Word. In Lk.4:4, Jesus speaking said, you shall not live by bread alone but by every word that proceeds out of the mouth of the Lord. You will also have to give deeper attention to His word and pray for grace to obey all His instructions. Do all you can to remain steadfast and focused on the goal. It is your heritage for a glorious husbandhood.
· Father, let the blood of Jesus speak better things concerning my relationship with my wife and children.
· Father, by the blood of Jesus Christ, I come against every satanic trap set to distract me from my wife and children.
· Father, by Your Spirit, empower me to stay focused on You, Your word and my home
I shall not be distracted by the forces of hell because God has called me to lead my wife and children as a good and godly husband in Jesus name. Amen.
