Main Scriptures: Jdgs.1:1-2

More Scriptures: Gen.1:26, Lk.10:19, Rev.12:11

After the death of Joshua, the Israelites asked the Lord, which tribe should go first to attack the Canaanites? The Lord answered, Judah, for I have given them victory over the land (Jdgs.1:1-2)

Did you know that as the head of your family, God has given you victory over those challenges you have with your wife and children? Did you know that there is no lost case with God when it comes to the relationship between you and your wife and children? Before God positioned you as the head in your sheepfold, He put inside you, His life of dominion. How do I know? The word of God says it. And let us make man (you) in our image and likeness and let him (you) have dominion over all….. (Gen.1:26). Although man fell when he committed sin against God, he was restored to his rightful place of authority and power when Jesus died and rose again. Does your wife disrespect and dishonor you? Are you struggling to love your wife and children as God commands you? Are you weighed down with unforgiveness, bitterness and malice against your sheep because of what they have done to you?  Does it look as if your children have become rebellious and unruly? Are you constantly struggling to provide for your family? It doesn’t matter what the challenges are and where they are coming from, God has made a victor. God has made you more than a conqueror in Christ Jesus. So, there is victory in sight for you. Therefore, your wife is not a hopeless case. Your children are not.

But for you to reign over the unending challenges in your family fold, you must be victory conscious. What this means is that you must walk with the mentality that you have the answers. Let this mind be in you, even the mind of Christ (Philp.2:5). Secondly, you must walk in confidence and not in fear. The word of God says, Christ has not given us the spirit of fear but of boldness and a sound mind (2Tim.1:7). Thirdly, you must position yourself rightly in the Word, by the Word and through the Word. And you achieve this by staying focused on the word of God. The Scriptures in Matt.6:22 have this to say. If thy eyes be single, thy whole body will be full of light (revelation) (Matt.6:22).

You must not allow the unpleasant circumstances in your family-fold steal your joy and headship. You must stand up to the challenges in faith and by the weapon of the blood of Jesus and deal with satan and his agents influencing the troubles. You are a victor and not a victim.


  • Father, in the Name of Jesus, deliver me from the spirit of fear and intimidation.
  • Father, in the Name of Jesus, empower me with a greater measure of faith for unending victories.
  • Father, in the Name of Jesus, teach my hands how to war a good warfare.


I am born to win over the challenges in my family-fold and that shall be my daily experiences as the good and godly husbandman to my wife and children in Jesus name. Amen.
