Husbands, you have power with God. When God called you to lead your wife and children, he knew that there will be mountains to overcome, obstacles to upturn and enemies to triumph over. Whatever you are going through today in the administration of your family kingdom as the head of the family, can be overcome because from the beginning God empowered you for the office of the husbandhood. Let me share with you a personal testimony. My first child came back from school one day with bumps all over her body. I thought it was a normal thing that would go with time. Unfortunately, as the days went by, her condition grew worse. My wife and I took her to the hospital, but she could not be treated because the hospital didn’t have the drugs. We were recommended to visit the pharmacy to buy the drugs. As my wife and I went from one pharmacy to another, we couldn’t get the drugs. As I got to the last pharmacy store and did get it, I got angry in my spirit and went home ready to meet with my healer. Just as I went to bed, I had an encounter with God. He told me to lay her tithe booklet on her and read out Malachi 3:10. As I woke up from that divine visitation, I knew I had contacted power with God. With this empowerment, my wife and I did as we were command by God. And instantly, my girl that was twice her size as a result of the affliction deflated instantaneously. To God alone be all the glory.
As the head of the family, God has given you power to provide security, succor, anchor and protection for your wife and children. Your headship does not only make you a provider, it also makes you a carrier of healing virtues. In Luke 10:19, the Scriptures say I have given YOU AUTHORITY over all the power of the enemies. You have authority over that sickness that is troubling your wife and children. You can stop that harassment of the enemy against your flock. You must walk in this reality and lay hands on them in faith and curse the attackers. Stop watching your wife and children suffer. Go on the attack. God has given you all authority. Don’t fail God. Act like a husband.
- Father, in the Name of Jesus, help me to exercise my authority over every attacker against my wife and children.
- Father, in the Name of Jesus, deliver me from the power of fear.
- Father, in the Name of Jesus, restore the dignity of my position as the head of my family.
I am a husband of authority and I exercise it against the enemy of my wife and children in the Name of Jesus Christ. Amen.
