Main Scriptures: Gen.1:1-3
More Scriptures: Heb.11:3, 2Cor.7:1, Heb.11:6
In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth. The earth was formless and empty, and darkness covered the deep waters. And the Spirit of God was hovering over the surface of the waters. Then God said, “Let there be light” and there was light. And God saw that the light was good. Then he separated the light from the darkness (Gen.1:1-4)
Welcome to the last month of the year 2021. Together as one family, we thank the Lord Jesus Christ for the blessings of the year. And as we approach the finish line, what should you start doing? God wants you to recreate your sheepfold, the same way He recreated the world with its beauty, splendor and wonder.
When God saw that the entire creation did not align with the original plan He had, He spoke the commanded words. He commanded and declared, “Let there be light (Gen.1:3)”. Further down the Scripture, the word of God confirms the outcome. And God saw that the light was good (Gen.1:31). You must not watch your wife and children disintegrate. You must not allow your wife and children and your entire sheepfold walk in darkness. You must reinvent splendor, glory and honour in your sheepfold. If God recreated a beautiful world out of nothing, you can do same because you are made in the image and likeness of God (Gen.1:26-28).
But for you to experience the reality of your confession and declaration, you must have a quality relationship with God through the Person of Jesus Christ. You cannot live in sin and expect God to give value to your declarations. The word of God warns that he that nameth the name of the Lord must depart from iniquity. You must deal with every form of defilement and sinful nature that affect your inner man. You must overcome such temptations as bitterness, envy, unforgiveness, wrath, pride, a haughty spirit and many more (2Cor.7:1, Gal.5:17-21). You must also exercise supernatural faith in God and His ability to confirm what you have declared over your wife and children (Heb.11:1-3).
Therefore, take charge, recreate a beautiful family and be in command of your sheepfold.
- Father, in the Name of Jesus, take away every filthy garment from my life and deliver me from the power of sin.
- Father, in the Name of Jesus, empower me to bear righteous fruits for my wife and children to eat from.
- Father, in the Name of Jesus, empower me with the Spirit of faith and let it yield great results in the lives of my wife and children.
I recreate and enforce the glorious destinies of my wife and children, and sheepfold by the word of God in my mouth because that is the proof of my glorious calling as the good and godly husband in Jesus name. Amen.
