Bible Texts: Heb.11:1-6, Lk.18:1, Ps.23:1-3, Rom.12:1-3, Lk.10:19, 1Tim.5:8, Matt.18:19, Jn.3:3-7, Jn.1:12-15

The other key is faith in Jesus Christ and the finished work of salvation. Jesus speaking said, if you can have faith like a mustard seed, you will say to this mountain, be thou removed and be cast out into the sea and it shall be so. Why do you need faith? It is because faith in God brings the power of God to bear in your life which enables you to fulfill your mandate as the good and godly man, husband and father. However, you must desire to walk by faith as a way of life.

The next key is for you to engage your mind, soul and body to legitimate work that will yield profits so that you can have something to provide for your wife and children. You will not command as much authority as you would if you fail in your responsibilities of providing for your wife and children. This much Jesus Christ, the perfect example of the Godly shepherd understood hence He ensured that He provided the spiritual, material and physical needs of His disciples. He said, my father work, so, I work. And this example was further reaffirmed by Apostle Paul. The word of God says, he that cannot provide for his family is worse than an infidel (1Tim.5:8). And He that must not work must not eat.  

As the good and godly husbandman, you must understand that you are the good shepherd. And as the good shepherd, you have your wife and children to take care of. And one principal way to care for your wife and children is to provide for them (Ps.23:1-3). God has provided for you and me all that pertains to life and godliness. So, if you are made in His image and likeness, then you have His nature- the nature to provide.

As the godly husbandman, you must fight against the rudiments of this world, where shepherds have become sheep. That is, the wife is now the person who provides for accommodation, pays the children school fees and the bills at home, while the husbandman does nothing. God did not put your wife to be the head. God positioned you as the head and shepherd. (1Cor.11:3).

So, if you want to command the God order of authority in your family, you must diligently work your hand and mind to earn income to provide for your family. That is where your honour lies as the good and godly man, husband and father.

The next key you require to deliver on your authority as the head of your family in the administration of your sheepfold is the key of doing what the word of God commands you to do, diligently.


  • Father, in the Name of Jesus, deliver me from every spirit of lack and want.
  • Father, in the Name of Jesus, give me the power to succeed in all my endeavours.
  • Father, in the Name of Jesus, empower me to make wealth and be a provider to my wife and children.


I have been empowered by God to succeed in the work of my hands, and through it I shall provide for my wife and children because that is what makes me the good and godly husbandman in Jesus name. Amen.
