Praise God! We are in the last day of the second quarter of 2019, our year of THE LIGHT. I also trust that the Person of the Holy Spirit has deposited valuable virtues in you, enabling you to function and the godly man, husband and father. May the diverse encounters be permanent in Jesus name. Amen.
So, as we conclude the month, I want to encourage you to put your best as the godly husbandman. I want you to demonstrate the life of Jesus Christ to your wife and children through your conduct, conversation, responses and thought. I want you to put on a new attitude of godliness and show it forth for your sheep to see. As the leading light in the lives of your wife and children, you must deliberately guard your behavior going forward. You must understand that your conduct will always speak louder than your speech. You must have the testimony that Apostle Paul had when he said, I labored more than you all. Your life must show commitment, determination and passion to want to be the best leader, mentor and guide to your sheep. The glory of your headship is more than just impregnating your wife and becoming a father. It is more than having your children or a wife bearing your name. It is more than having the entitlement-mentality that you are the head. It is about influence and mentorship.
But for you to be the best leader to your sheep, you must do the following. You must change the way you think about yourself and about your wife and children. This is because as you think in your heart so will you act. Until you can change the way you think, you cannot give your best of God to your sheep. God has made you a king and a priest unto Himself that you may reign in life (Rev.5:10). Secondly, you must resist any temptation to lower the standard of Scriptures. The word of God commands you to resist the devil steadfastly in faith (1Pet.5:9). You must reject any suggestion, idea, teachings or counsel that doesn’t align with the word of God. This is the reason. And be not conformed to this world but be ye transformed by the renewing of your mind, that ye may prove what is that good and acceptable and perfect will of God (Rom.12:2). Finally, you must remain small in your eyes before God. That is humility. Don’t allow pride to overtake you because it can destroy you. The grace of God is available to every leader who is humble. And it is God’s grace that enables you to function effectively as the godly husband. So, keep thanking God for choosing you to lead your wife and children. Never stop to thank God for the wisdom He has given to you.
And as you walk in this light of Scriptures, God will bless you in every way possible and your sheep will shout of your testimony at the roof top as the godly man, husband and father. Make your life count positively.
- Father, in the name of Jesus, empower me to give the best of my life to my wife and children and the world.
- Father, in the name of Jesus, work through me to deliver Your best to my sheep.
- Father in the name of Jesus, empower me to speak the truth from an inward heart towards my wife and children and to all men.
I offer the best of God in me to my wife, children and the world around me because that is what makes me a good and godly husband in Jesus Name. Amen.
