No one can deny the fact that the challenges confronting husbands in this generation are enormous. From sustaining the spiritual atmosphere to providing for the family and to giving purposeful leadership, husbands are daily being weighed down. Some husbands have wondered if there is any hope for them, while others have decided to take their lives. A lot of husbands are so afraid of the future. And they have resigned to fate. Husbands can no longer fight the good fight of faith. Many more have lost their voices at home because their wives have taken over the roles God originally assigned to the husbands. A lot of the husbands are part of the numbers and not an important player in the family kingdom.
But today, I believe that the Holy Spirit wants to put in your hands three vital keys you need to live above the storms. I pray in the name of Jesus that your faith in God will not fail. I ask that the Person of the Holy Spirit will open your eyes to see your glorious destiny in Christ. Amen. As a husband and the head of your family, there are three important anchors you must hold jealously. They are your three best numbers that you must fix your gaze on. They are three portraits that must be fully formed in your heart. What are they?
They are FAITH, HOPE AND LOVE. You must continue to trust God that He will help you and right early. You must keep believing every promise that the word of God has provided because without faith, it is impossible to please God (Heb.11:6). You must be hopeful. You must see beyond your past and present and look to a better tomorrow. God Himself said that the thoughts that He has towards you are good and not evil. And His thoughts to bring to a glorious future (Jer.29:11). And finally, you need to walk in love towards God, your wife and children and humanity. God is love and if you dwell in love you dwell in God. God never fails, you will not fail.
· Father, in the name of Jesus, fill me with the spirit of hope, faith and love.
· Father, in the name of Jesus, deliver me from every foundation of hopelessness.
· Father, in the name of Jesus, show me mercy and help me to be a better husband.
I am not giving up on God, my life, my wife and children because I have a glorious future as a good and godly husband in Jesus Name. Amen.
