STUDY THE BIBLE AND GROW

Spread the love

Main Scriptures: Jos.1:7-8

More Scriptures: 2Tim.2:15, Eph.5:25, Eph.6:4

Be strong and very courageous. Be careful to obey all the instructions Moses gave you. Do not deviate from them, turning either to the right or to the left. Then you will be successful in everything you do. Study this BOOK OF INSTRUCTION CONTINUALLY. Meditate on it day and night so you will be sure to obey everything written in it. Only then will you prosper and succeed in all you do (Jos.1:7-8)

A lot of the times as husbandmen, we deceive ourselves to think that we can make the most of our headship by the rule of the thumb rather than studying and acting on the word of God. So, the result is what you find in our family fold today-husbandmen who have lost their voices, power and influence. As the head of your family, you cannot be greater and better than what you know and prepared to apply yourself. You cannot command positive influence in the lives of your wife and children beyond the knowledge of God you know and that is at work in your life. Everything you need to know about the will of God for your life as the good and godly man, husband, father and how you are commanded to relate with your wife and children are in the Bible. You only need to study it continually.

So, the Bible is your manual of instruction. It helps you to overcome errors as a man, husband and father. For instance, in Eph.5, the word of God says that husband love thy wife as Christ has loved the Church (Eph.5:25). If you study this word intensely and meditate on it with the whole of your heart, you find yourself desiring to be like Jesus to your wife. In Num.6, the Scripture provides the way you can impart the blessings of the Lord upon your wife and children. In Eph.6:4, the word of God also teaches you how to relate with your children. The Bible also teaches you in 1Pet.3:7 on how to relate with your wife. Infact, there are so many instructions in the Bible designed by God for your profiting. God wants you to flourish as the head of your family. God wants you to prosper as a man, husband and father. God wants you to command the respect and honour and loyalty of your wife and children. God wants you to be a leader of good and godly influence and affluence (Rev.5:10). But you have the responsibility to study the Book of instruction (Bible) and apply yourself to everything there in so that way you can make your ways prosperous as the good and godly husbandman (Jos.1:8).
