Main Scriptures: Psalm 24:3-5
More Scriptures: Matt.5:8, Ps.15:4, 1Tim.2:8
I am the true vine, and my Father is the gardener. He cuts off every branch in me that bears no fruit, while every branch that does bear fruit, he prunes so that it will be even more fruitful. You are already clean because of the word I have spoken to you. Remain in me, and I will remain in you. No branch can bear fruit by itself. It must remain in the vine. Neither can you bear fruit unless you remain in me. (Jn.15:1-4) New International Version.
As a husband and the leader in your home, God has designed a highway of glory, honour, blessings, riches, power and strength for you (Rev.5:12). It is the highway that brings you peace and dignity. It is the way that leads to a great life. Every husband is made in the image and likeness of God (Ps. 82:6, Jn.10:34). This nature empowers you to live the highway of life in all its majesty. This highway of life that God has prepared for you is far above principalities, powers, witches, rulers of the darkness, shame and reproach. It is the highway, whose streets are paved with gold. That is God’s master plan for your life as the spiritual leader of your home. However, it is not just any husband that qualifies to access this highway of life. The only set of people who will walk and drive on this highway are husbands who live in the fear of God and in righteousness. In Ps.24:3, the Scriptures asked a question, who shall ascend into the hill of the Lord? Who shall stand in his holy place? And in verse 4, the answer came. God said it is he that has clean hands, a pure heart, who has not lifted up his soul unto vanity, nor sworn deceitfully.
Unrighteousness and sin remain your greatest hindrance to this glorious highway of life. God Who made this highway is a holy God and He has commanded you to live a holy life. So, to live in sin and unrighteousness is to be sold out to the low- ways of life. Sin displaces any husband from the highways of life. Sin is also a disconnector. It disconnects you from the glorious journey of life. Sin is a stainer. It stains your life so that you become unfit to drive into the highways of life that God has ordained for you. Sin is like a car driving on an airport runaway hoping to fly the same way airplanes do. So, it is with any husband who lives in unrighteousness. You cannot fly high. Therefore, righteous living is the gateway to a high-flying life. Moses, Abraham, Joseph, Isaac, Jacob, Noah, just to mention a few were heroes that rode upon the high places of the. God Who created them also made you, so you can live the highway of life. More so, you are in a better dispensation because of the death, resurrection and ascension of Jesus Christ. You have every reason to live the highlife. You are made for the high life (Ps.24:5).
- Father, in the Name of Jesus, I disconnect myself from every sinful nature and reconnect to a righteous nature.
- Father, in the Name of Jesus, bring me to my highway of glory and honour.
- Father, in the Name of Jesus, fill me with power to dominate and overcome the lust of the flesh, the pride of life and the lust of the eyes.
I walk in holiness and righteousness because that is my gateway to the highways of life and my call as a good and godly husband in Jesus name. Amen.
