Are you aware that you are a man chosen among many by God Himself to lead your wife and children? As the head of your family and the spiritual leader in your family kingdom, your position is that of a rescue agent. God sent you into the lives of your flock to undo whatever the force of hell may be planning to do or have done. The Scripture tells us of the need of your wife and who should be her deliverer. The people of the land have used oppression, and exercised robbery and have vexed the poor and needy, yea, they have oppressed the stranger wrongfully (Ezk.22:29). Can you imagine the extent to which your wife and children may have suffered if you are in their lives? A lot of the time, your flock struggle with their past, wrong relationships, bad attitudes, oppression from satanic forces and much more. God doesn’t want to see them suffer any longer. He desires to raise a Moses for them and that person is YOU. And I sought for a man among them that should make up the hedge and stand in the gap before me for the land that I should not destroy it, but I found none (Ezk.22:30). Being a husband is a unique privilege. It is the greatest platform God has provided for you to influence your wife and children positively.
God wants you to make up the hedge by filling the gaps in the lives of your flock. God wants you to stand in the gap for your flock by constantly interceding for them. God doesn’t want the lives of your flock to be destroyed. God wants you to help your wife and children recover whatever the enemy may have stolen from them-their peace, strength, health, obedience, submission, academic and marital success. My wife used to suffer satanic oppression in our early years of marriage to the extent that whenever she conceived, a strange being will come to press her stomach in the night when she is asleep. By the time she woke up in the morning, the conception was lost. This continued for a while until, I took my place as a sought-after man and stood in the gap until she got her deliverance by the power of God Almighty. To the glory of God, she is free and had three amazing children. As the husband of your wife and father over your children, you must be angry with satan over everything that hurts your flock. You must not entertain and accept anything less than the best for them. You must take your stand based on the word of God and chase every ungodly tendencies and happenings away from their lives. That is your heritage, make it count.
· Father, I thank You for making me a sought-after man for my wife and children.
· Father, by the power in the blood of Jesus Christ, deliver my flock from every satanic oppression.
· Father, by Your Spirit, empower me to demonstrate power and authority over every oppression around the lives of your flock.
FAITH CONFESSION I take full charge of the affairs of my flock because God has raised me as deliverer for the sake of my wife and children in Jesus name. Amen.
