🦹♂️ Wives long to look up to their man as their LEADER. And that leadership is not overbearing, not controlling, but a LOVING LEADERSHIP where we can find assurance that we are securely loved, valued and properly guided.♥️💖
🗣We look up to our husband as a PROPHET – he holds on to the WORD of GOD as the compass (plumbline in carpentry lingo) that points the family to its destiny. We go to the WORD as the standard whereby we live our family life peacefully, wisely and holy. The WORD teaches us, rebukes us, corrects us and trains us to stay on the right path (2 Tim. 3:16). Our husband as a prophet rightly divides the WORD for us to tread on that path all the days of our life. (2 Tim. 2:15) 📖🙏📖 Wisdom marks his life because by wisdom a house is built (Pro. 24:3). Wise counsel springs forth from his lips, for he is committed to TRUTH. He has become a wise leader because his wisdom comes from CHRIST, in whom are hidden all the treasures of wisdom and knowledge (Col. 2:2-3).📖🧠🗣
Men, please do not remain silent as Adam did in the garden, we need godly leaders in our homes who will speak up and stand for what’s right!!
🙌Our husband is also a PRIEST who will lead us in our family devotions, who prays for his wife and children. 🙏 Oh, how a wife longs to witness her husband lead her and the children! 🙌A prayerful dad demonstrates to the family that he trusts in GOD, that he relies and depends on GOD, WHO is the SOURCE of life and godliness (2 Pet. 1:3). He stands in awe before the LORD as he brings our needs to GOD and he listens to what the LORD has to say. A priest has open ears to those around him.👂 Men, please do not remain silent as Adam did in the garden, we need godly leaders in our homes who will speak up and stand for what’s right!! Men who do not flip flop and are not ambivalent, but who take definitive, sure steps because their decisions are based on the TRUTH of GOD’s WORD!
👑Yes, our husband is also a KING who takes charge of his little kingdom – the family – entrusted to him by GOD! A king provides for the well-being of his subjects: properly clothed, warmly sheltered, wisely counseled, healthily fed. A king sees to it that the subjects are feasting from the abundance of his house (Ps. 36); that all is well with his people, not living under dire conditions, malnourished and shriveled. 😔 When living conditions and environment are stable, needs are met, loyalty from subjects readily comes by.
🙌This three-fold calling of our husband comes with anointing from the LORD. We stand by our man in prayer and support as he fulfills the role GOD has required of him to accomplish so lovingly and willingly. 🙏
