TOPIC : UNDERSTANDING THE ROLE OF HUSBAND IN A FAMILY LIFE

SCRIPTURE :Ephesians 5: 23. For the husband is the head of the wife, even as Christ is the head of the church: and he is the saviour of the body.

Beloved, I welcome you to another Moment of Daily Encounter! The role of the husband in a family life is so vital for us to critically examine.

Today we shall be looking at some of this role.

What are the roles of husband?

1. Headship (Eph.5:23): The husband is the head of the family! God made him head for the purpose of administration of authority in the family line!.

Just as a man pour water on the head and the entire body eventually recieve some measure of the water even down to your feet.

So also the head of the family recieve authority on behalf of the family. He takes decision on behalf of the family. If God wants to bless the family, He blesses the head of the family while the blessing eventually flows to every member of the family.

This is also the reason why if the devil wants to get the family into covenant he ensure that the head of the family is the one making the covenant because he understands Headship. The Bible said:

Ephesians 5: 23. For the husband is the head of the wife, even as Christ is the head of the church: and he is the saviour of the body.

Headship is leadership (1Cor.11:3, Eph. 5:23).

Just as Christ does not Lord himself over the church so also husband should not lord it over their wife. You don’t demand for it, naturally your place must be given to you as the head if you play your part as a role model.

Let’s consider what head is made of;
The head is made up of:

1. Eyes : Eyese is for sight! Eyes represent vision! Hence, to be the head of a family simply means you are the eyes of the family.

The vision for the growth, survival/sustenance of the family is hanging on you. The husband must be able to put up a plan, design a system for day to day running of the family.

2. Nose: The nose is for perception. The husband must be able to perceived in the spirit and take decisive action on behalf of the family.

3. Ear: the ear is for hearing! It is the role of the husband/father being the head of the family to hear on behalf of the family. When God wanted Abraham to move out of Ur of Chaldeans, He didn’t speak to Sarah the wife of the family, rather He spoke to Abraham (Gen.12:1).

Also when he wanted Abraham to sacrifice his son He didn’t talk to Sarah, it was still Abraham the head of the family(Gen.22:1-3). The role of the husband is to hear God’s instructions on behalf of the family.

4. Mouth: The mouth is for talking. Hence it is responsibility of the head of the family being the husband to speak on behalf of the family. He is the spoke person of the family. He is the authorize voice in the realm of the spirit. He can bring in a curse or a blessing upon his family.

1 Chronicles 16: 43. And all the people departed every man to his house: and David returned to bless his house.

Please observed the statement “and David returned to bless his house”! This is a clear example of a husband/father who understands the use of authority with his mouth.

Beloved, what do you bring upon your family with your mouth? Is it a blessing or a curse? It is quite unfortunate that many have bring a damaging impact on their family than blessings!

In most parts of Africa we know more of words that can curse than blessings. With our mouth we have entered into strange covenant with the devil that plays out on the lives of unborn generations.

Dear husband learn to bless your family with your mouth. Learn to pray for your wife like Isaac did to his wife.

Isaac prayed to the Lord on behalf of his wife, because she was childless. The Lord answered his prayer, and his wife Rebekah became pregnant.
Genesis 25:21 NIV

Isaac terminated the yoke of barrenness with his own mouth because he understands his role as a husband, he recognized the authority in his mouth and deployed it.

Proverbs 18: 21. Death and life are in the power of the tongue: and they that love it shall eat the fruit thereof.

What is leadership?
Leadership is influence!
(To be continue tommorow)

Remember this; Heaven is real and hell is real. Don’t joke with your eternal soul, get serious with Jesus.

Prayer points:
– Father thank you for your word to me today.
– Lord I receive grace to be a good head to my family in the name of Jesus

Prophetic Declaration:

-I prophesy restoration of every broken homes in the name of Jesus.
– Your marriage will not be victims of satanic attack in the name of Jesus
– To all the singles in the house you will have the best marriage in the name of Jesus

From your brother Alex
God bless you.
