Husbands, it is the knowledge of God that you have at your disposal that keeps the enemy away from your family peace and joy, financial and spiritual prosperity and physical blissfulness. The Bible tells us in Hosea 4:6 that my people perish for lack of knowledge. Knowledge is power. If you must run the office of the husbandhood that you occupy gloriously and triumphantly you must be a husband that seek after God and His commandments. Only those who know their God shall do exploit. Do you want to do exploit as the head of the family that will bring glory to God, Who created the office that you occupy? Then seek after His will for your life, family and ministry. Your position as a husband confers on you the shepherd anointing. and the shepherd anointing covers four broad areas namely: provision, protection, preservation, promotion. Every aspect of the demands for a godly husband has the content in the Word of Life, the Bible.
Therefore as a godly husband, you must be a man of knowledge and understanding in the matters of life and godliness in your life, family and ministry. There is no mountain anywhere. Your ignorance is your mountain. What you don’t know will always work against. That turbulence you are experiencing with your wife can be settled by the knowledge in God’s Word. Those children of yours that have turned against you can be rescued by the power in the knowledge of God’s Word. Any challenge that confronts you as a husband has its answers in the Word of Life, the Bible.
Knowledge is the outcome of study. This is why the Bible tells us in II Tim. 2:15 that only men who study are approved by God. You have complained that your wife and children do not approve of you. Check. It may simply be that you are not working in knowledge. Ignorance is not an excuse in the journey of your marriage life as a husband. God gave you the Bible before you became a husband. It requires you to give attention to the Word of God.
When you know God and His will, you live a life of peace and joy in your family life, business, relationship with your in-laws, employers and employees. Seek to know more of the Chief Husbandman, Jesus Christ and be empowered to live like Him on earth.
· Father in the name of Jesus Christ, I acknowledge that I need you more than ever before. Help me to know you.
· Father, by Your Spirit, grant me grace to study your Word continually.
· Holy Spirit of God, open my eyes to the deep things of your will to concerning my life, family and ministry and make me live by Your will.
· Spirit of God, let my eyes of understanding be enlightened that I may behold wondrous things out of the Bible so that I may live a life well pleasing to you, my wife, children and the world.
I am a blessed husband, filled with the knowledge of God and Jesus and the Holy Spirit in Jesus mighty name. Amen.
