Are you becoming a man of God? We need people in our country to stand up and become the man God is calling you to become. If you read a lot of my blog posts then you will keep hearing me say don’t allow who you think you are to stop you from becoming who God called you to be.
I love that last statement because it says so much. As a man of God, we have to realize that God has big plans for us especially if we are going to take our country back. I see so many people sitting on the sidelines and saying but that’s not my fight.
YES it is your fight. God is calling all of us Christian men to stand up for several things. We are to stand up for God first and foremost. We are to stand up for right and wrong. So many men are just sugarcoating things nowadays that what’s wrong has become right and what’s right has become wrong. I SAY STAND NOW for TRUTH!
Our country needs you. We are in a spiritual battle whether you realize it or not. Every issue we are facing is a spiritual one.
Ephesians 6:12 – For we do not wrestle against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this age,against spiritual hosts of wickedness in the heavenly places.
Our families need us.Our wives need us. They need us to stand up for them and protect them. I see a a lot of men who when their wife gets put down from their friends will then jump in too. REALLY? Come on now be a man of God and protect your wife! Any friend who talks about my wife in a not so good manner becomes an instant ex-friend. No question about it. God gave her to me and he expects me to take care of her in every area from physically, emotionally, mentally, spiritually and of course financially.
Treat your wife with the respect she deserves. Show her what a true man of God is really about. It isn’t about romance but loving her through God’s eyes. When you realize how much God loves her then there is no way that you can talk down to her because then you are talking down to God.
Our kids need us. There are way too many fatherless homes happening. We need men of God to step up to the plate and be the father that your child deserves. Your child deserves the best of you not the leftovers you have to offer. Your child not only needs you emotionally but he or she also needs your example.
Your kids are watching your every move and do they see a man of God or just some coward who goes with the flow? It is your choice for what your kids see. Are you going to be perfect? Of course not but you need to be there!
If you have time or you have no kids maybe you need to volunteer to be a mentor to a fatherless child. They need someone to mentor them to help guide the way. God needs us men of God to step up to the plate and give our country someone it truly needs and that is a man of God.
Are you out there working 60 to 80 hours a week while your kids are being farmed out to the lowest bidder? Are you indulging in your selfish desires at the expense of your kids? Are you working so many long hours so that you can have that boat that you never use? Or take that vacation just so you can get away from your kids even though they don’t know who you are anyway?
Are you living your life in such a way that you are destroying your family from the ground up? Come on be a man of God and take full responsibility for your life and especially for your families. Most men years ago would die for their kids if they could but will you even shed a tear for yours?
But you say I don’t show emotion. Who told you that lie? That is the biggest lie we men give ourselves is that we just aren’t emotional. What happens if your favorite sports team loses by a landslide? Do you want to throw stuff? Do you get a bit upset?
How can you get so emotional about some stupid sports thing but then can’t show emotion for your family? Come on now let’s get real here and let’s work on this together. This blog entry may be tough for you as I don’t want to hold any punches because as men of God our kids are being destroyed because we sit idle.
We have to get so loaded with passion about our families that we end up in tears. Our families need to be everything. We don’t need to give them the best of everything we need to give them the best of ourselves. I cringe when I hear people say I want to give my child everything I didn’t have? Why not give them everything you did have if you had love? Love for your child is everything.
When you are dealing with your family are you a strong hold person? QUIT it NOW! Are you some wimp in your home? QUIT that too! Quit all this wimpy stuff we see men do. Your family needs a man of God that understands balance between men of strength and men of love.
If you are all strength you will be wrong 50% of the time. If you are of love all the time you will be wrong 50% of the time. Your family needs to see you as a man of strength with love. Sometimes we will have to protect our families and other times we need to just love them. We need the wisdom to know the difference.
Men of God also make no excuses. Excuses are for losers. Get rid of your loser’s limp. You will never be the man of God if all you can do is make excuses for your life and where you are. Do you blame everyone for everything except the man in the mirror?
Let’s take back our country by being the man of God we are called to be not the man of God the media has made us to look like. It’s time for the real men to stand up and be accountable to God first then their families. If you have those as your priorities then everything else will fall into place.
Yes this post might have been hard to read but it needed to be said. God needs you to wake up. He needs you to drop to your knees and start becoming who he called you to be. He doesn’t need your pride or selfish desires to get in the way. He needs you to sacrifice all for him and your family.
Ask God to change your heart. If you felt uneasy with this blog post then ask God to heal your heart so that you can be open for correction. Ask him for guidance so that you can be directed. Ask him for the courage to lead your family where God wants you to go. Ask him for the wisdom to know when to lead, when to love and when to protect. Ask him to make you whole so that you can give your whole self to your family.
Now go out and change the world by changing your heart first!
