Bible Texts: Col.2:19, Ps.133:2, Acts 5:16, Ps.100:3, Jn.6:44, Acts1:8
But how do I function in the anointing of the Holy Spirit to the extent that my wife and children can connect to the graces of God at work in my life? The first step is to know Jesus Christ. That I may know him and the power of his resurrection (Philpp.3:10). Secondly, work and walk with the Person of the Holy Spirit because He is the custodian of the power of God. In Acts chapter 1, the Bible affirms how important the Holy Ghost is to you and I even as we lead our sheep. You shall receive power after the Holy Ghost is come upon you…..(Acts 1:8).
Thirdly, you must walk in love towards your wife and children so that they can be attracted to the anointing in you. You cannot keep malice, be hateful, be disloyal and unfaithful, abuse, mistreat, manipulate and oppress your wife and children and expect them to connect to you. It is said that a tree that bears sweet fruits attracts. And the word of God says that you are the good-fruit bearing agent that attracts men to glorify your Father in heaven. Let your light so shine before men that they may see your good works and glorify your Father which is in heaven (Matt.5:16).
If you live the principles of the Bible as you relate with your wife and children, you are fulfilling Jesus’s statement in Matt.5:14 which says, ye are the light of the world.
Study to shew thyself approved unto God, a workman that needeth not to be ashamed, rightly dividing the word of truth (2Tim.2:15). See what the Book of Proverbs says that will help your understanding of the importance to keep increasing the knowledge of God for the benefit of your life, wife and children. With his mouth the godless man destroyeth his neighbour. But through knowledge shall the righteous be delivered (Pro.11:9).
As the good and godly husbandman, you must develop and continue to grow in the knowledge and power of God so that your wife and children can continue to enjoy the power of God at work in your life to heal, provide, protect, direct, deliver and sustain. Make your life count positively in the lives of your sheep as you impact them with the anointing of God.
- Father, in the Name of Jesus, make me a leading light to my wife and children.
- Father, in the Name of Jesus, let Your anointing in my life flow to my wife and children.
- Father, in the Name of Jesus, make my life attractive to my wife and children.
I exercise myself in the truth of God’s word to pour out His grace in my life on my wife and children for their upliftment because I am the good and godly husbandman in Jesus name. Amen.
