Bible Texts: Heb.11:1-3, Hab.2:4, Rom.10:17, Jn.15:5, Heb.11:6, Mk.9:23, Rom.10:10, Rom.4:17, Gal.4:19, Jos.1:6-8, Heb.11:30-32

Today, let us consider an important virtue every husbandman must covet and pray to possess and demonstrate. It is the spirit of faith which empowers the husbandman to fulfill the covenant assignments as the man, husband and father, particularly in the time we are living.

The just shall live by faith……..( Hab.2:4)

The word of God says that the justified shall live by faith. God does not want you to only have faith in Him and His word, He also wants you to live by faith. This means that you must take steps to obey all the commandments and instructions in the word of God as they relate to what you must do as the good and godly man, husband and father because all things are possible if you believe (Mk.9:23).

But why do I need to live by faith?

You need bold steps of faith to stand in the place of prayers and intercession for yourself and for your wife and children (Gal.4:19, 1Tim.5:8, 2Thess.3:10). You also need to live by faith and not by sight in order to please God because without faith it is impossible to please God (Heb.11:6).

In order for you to live and lead by faith in God and His word and triumph as the husbandman, you must invest your time in the word of God by studying it, thinking about what it says (Jos.1:6-8, Rom.10:17). The more you give attention to the word of God in seeking His plan for your life as the husbandman, the stronger you become in taking bold steps of faith.

You must also engage the weapon of prayer and fasting to build your inner confidence in what the word of God says which you have read and believed (Mk.9:29, Lk.18:1). Praying the word of God into your life empowers your faith to obtain the promises of God for your calling as the husbandman.

Finally, you must confess the word of God for your life as the good and godly man, husband and father regardless of the circumstances (Rom.10:10). This means that you must discipline your tongue to speak what God says and not what satan, sin, the world and your circumstance is saying.

When you live by faith in God and His word and act upon the word of God boldly and confidently, you will live a victorious life and fulfill God’s mandate on your life as the good and godly man, husband and father.

I pray in the name of Jesus Christ, your faith in God and His word shall not fail. Amen.


  • Father, in the Name of Jesus, open my heart to Your words and help me to receive Your instructions with gladness.
  • Father, in the Name of Jesus, pour upon me a greater measure of the Spirit of faith as I lead as the man, husband and father.
  • Father, in the Name of Jesus, empower me to discipline my tongue so that I will only be speaking what You say and not what I see.


I have the word of God in me and I believe the word of God and I take bold steps of faith as the man, husband and father because that is what empowers me to become the good and godly husbandman in Jesus Name. Amen.
