WE ARE TO GUIDE Genesis 2:18-23
And the LORD answered me: “Write the vision; make it plain upon tablets, so he may run who reads it. (Habakkuk 2:2)
We should be men of vision who have a God ordained agenda! Women often take the dominant role in marriages because their husbands do not present the family with a God – ordained agenda. Men have been “in neutral” for so long that women have filled the leadership void. Now they run the whole house. Tragically, this has made men even more insecure and women even stressed, and embittered. We will all be happier if the men of God will pay attention to Habakkuk the prophet: “Write the vision; make it plain upon tablets, so he may run who reads it. (Habakkuk 2:2) True masculine guidance under God’s authority always respects the often keen insight of feminine perception. To be the “head of the house” does not mean to be domineering and authoritarian. It simply means that men are responsible for setting progressive agenda and being firm enough to hold their families to the track. First, godly men must be prayerful enough to hear from God. Then they must clearly communicate the vision. Write the vision and make it plain. Once you know you have heard from God, then you must be strong enough to stand by the plan. Abraham experienced struggle, but he continued toward the vision. He and Sarah made mistakes, but they didn’t deviate from the goal. Helpers are only supplied to productive people. Get on your knees if you want to see change in your home and feel joy in your heart (T. D. Jakes)
