Let God Be The Head
2 Chronicles 13.12 “Now look, God Himself is with us as our head, and His priests with sounding trumpets to sound the alarm against you. O children of Israel, do not fight against the Lord God of your fathers, for you shall not prosper!”
Four hundred men went to war against eight hundred and prevailed, killing five hundred of them because their king acknowledged God as the Head of his army.
You’d be quick to say that God is the head of your life, your family, business, team, etc, if I ask, but is He truly the head? Do you always acknowledge Him as the head? Do you consult Him before you make decisions? It’s more than having inscriptions on the wall of your house and office, you’ve got to relate with Him as one.
Be a man or woman whose life is regulated by the word of God. That’s the real proof that you have made God the head of your life. Jesus said, “But why do you call Me ‘Lord, Lord,’ and not do the things which I say?” (Luke 6:46). Please spend some time to think about the things you do – how you live, your work, your business, your family, your finances, your relationships – are your actions being guided by divine instructions? When God is the Head, and you’re living by His word, then success and prosperity are guaranteed. Please let God be Head indeed.
