Honoring Our FATHER with our obedience pt 6
God holds Father’s / Men responsible for hearing from their Father (Him) for themselves, their wife (if they are married), their children and all whom they are responsible for. So, as Fathers / Men are learning how God is their head, how to submit to and obey God’s headship / leadership and what His role is in their lives; so we too are being taught and being trained; to allow them to be our head and have leadership over our lives. While they are learning their value and importance to us; we in-turn are learning how to: recognize, submit to, honor and value them.
(Psa 91:4 He shall cover thee with his feathers, and under his wings shalt thou trust: his truth shall be thy shield and buckler).
By submitting to Fathers / Men we put ourselves under their protection and care and they in turn become our covering. Just like when they obey God they come under His protection, covering and care.
When Fathers / Men look to God as their Father, and when they listen to God’s instructions and submit their wills to Him, and allow themselves to be corrected, instructed, guided and trained up in Gods righteousness; they receive The Father’s covering and protection over their lives; AND with their obedience to The Father, they are also bringing and placing God’s protection and covering over the lives of those who are under them.
Heb 13:17 Obey them that have the rule over you, and submit yourselves: for they watch for your souls, as they that must give account, that they may do it with joy, and not with grief: for that is unprofitable for you.
Each Father / Man is going to have to give an account of how they ran their own house. They are the covering for each member in their house those under their care ((wife, children, etc). This takes diligence and commitment from them to seek God on a regular / daily basis; getting directions and answers for each situation and circumstance that arises within their own home.
Pro 27:23 Be thou diligent to know the state of thy flocks, and look well to thy herds.
