GOD’S WORD IS TRUE, DON’T FIGHT IT!

Spread the love

Bible Texts: 2Cor.13:7-8, Ps.119:105, Jn.8:32, Rom.12:2, Jn.17:17, Jn.1:3-5, Gen.2:14-18, Matt.5:14-16, Ezk.2:2, Ps.1:1-3

Glory be to Jesus Christ in the highest for bringing us to the last day in the month of November 2022. I have no doubt in my heart that God has been faithful to you and your family. I am also assured by the Spirit of God that you are applying yourself to the word of God for you to the end that you become the good and godly husbandman.

Today, you and I must be reminded that the word of God for us as godly husbandmen is true, regardless of what the world thinks. One of the struggles the husbandman goes through is coming to agree with what the word of God says about who he is and what God expects from him. A lot of the time, the husbandman would rather choose the traditions and cultures of men over and above the perfect will of God. This is why we have many husbandmen but few good and godly husbandmen who are living out the very life of Christ in their family fold. God wants you and I to be in the class of husbandmen who searches the word of God, believes the word of God, understands the word of God and act on the word of God.

Now I pray to God that ye do no evil not that we should appear approved, but that ye should do that which is honest, though we be as reprobates. For we can do nothing against the truth but for the truth (2Cor.13:7-8).

As the good and godly husbandman and the head of your family, you must understand that the constitution that guides your conduct, utterances, relationships, finances and expectations is the Bible. From the beginning when God created the office of the husbandman (Gen.2:14-18), He had designed great plans for you. You must believe the word of God and not fight or resist it. You must accept the truth of Scriptures as the final authority in your decisions, actions and as you relate with your wife and children and the world at large (Matt.5:14-16).

But what do I gain if I allow the word of God to rule my life as the husbandman? Firstly, it makes you good and godly because the word of God influences your attitude, conduct and disposition to your wife and children and the world to be like Jesus Christ, the perfect example of the good and godly husbandman (Eph.5:25). Secondly, it guides and gives you direction as you lead your life, wife and children. Thy word is a lamp unto my feet and a light unto my path (Ps.119:105). Imagine the Spirit of God leading you in the discharge of your duty as the man, husband and father. Will you fail? No, you cannot.

Thirdly, the word of God illuminates your heart to see farther and better for your life, wife and children. The word shines in darkness and the darkness cannot comprehend it (Jn.1:5). As the husbandman and the seer in your family kingdom, vision is an important requirement for your successful reign. You can only go as far as you can see and you will relate with your wife and children only to the extent of what you can envision about them. If you see your wife as a piece of furniture or your children as a burden rather than gifts and assets from God, you will treat and relate with them with disrespect, dishonor and disregard.

As the husbandman who desires to be good and godly, you must acknowledge that God created the office-husbandhood- that you occupy presently. So, if you must succeed, you must seek Him and His word and do exactly what the word commands and instructs. Remember that your greatest heritage as the good and godly husbandman is measured by your obedience to the word of God.

Make your life count unto God, your wife, children and in the market place of life. God’s word is true!
