Yesterday, by the help of the Person of the Holy Spirit, you were taught about the need not to subsidize or devalue the worth of your wife and children. Today, you may want to know the force responsible for the misbehavior of your flock which has made you to devalue them. It is found in the 13th chapter of Matthew. It is a rather long scripture but I don’t want you to be discouraged even as you read it.
Another parable put he forth unto them, saying, the kingdom of heaven is like unto a man which had sown GOOD SEED in his field. But while men slept, HIS ENEMY came and sowed TARES among the wheat and went his way. But when the blade was sprung up and brought forth fruit, then appeared the TARES also. So the servants of the HOUSEHOLDER came and said unto him, sir, didst not thou sow GOOD SEED in THY FIELD? From whence then hath it TARES? He said unto to them, AN ENEMY hath done this. The servants said unto him, wilt thou then that we go and gather them up? Matt.13:24-28.
Anything you see in and around your wife and children that is not good has been planted by the enemy. Whatever manifestation that you find your wife and children displaying that bringing dishonor, pain and regrets to you and your family is being influenced by your enemy. Now, who is your enemy? The Scripture in the book of John gospel chapter 10 and verse 10 tells you who your enemy is. The thief cometh not, but for to STEAL, and to KILL and to DESTROY……(Jn.10:10). Satan is your enemy. He is the person who is influencing your sheep to misbehave. Satan is the invisible hand working disobedience in the lives of your wife and children. Your wife and children were good seeds. God gave them to you as good creatures (1Tim.4:4). Satan sowed the tares in your household. He is the one who has corrupted your flock. Your wife and children are not your enemies. The real enemy is the devil. So, for you to recover the dignity of your sheep, you must look beyond your wife and children. Secondly, you must resist the devil steadfastly in faith and bold declarations. Thirdly, daily plead the precious blood of Jesus Christ over the will, thoughts and emotions of your sheep (Rev.12:11). Fourthly, you must engage the twin power of prayer and fasting (Mk.9:29). Fifthly, you apply the wonders of the word of God to every sick area of their attitudes (1Tim.4:4). Don’t give the devil a foothold. Take the battle to his gate and recover the prestige of your flock. That is your heritage in Christ.
- Father, in the Name of Jesus, restore my dignity as a husband and leader in my home.
- Father, in the Name of Jesus, I resist every satanic influence working in my flock.
- Father, in the Name of Jesus, I recover the dignity and honour of my wife and children.
I rescue my wife and children from satanic influences and establish them in the light of God’s word because that is where my honour lies as the good and godly husband in Jesus Name. Amen.
