The 14 Things A Man Needs with Pastor Trevor Ndamuka (Part 1)

Men have needs. Let’s review how God designed the man, his assignment, and some of the things the man needs. 

1. THE MAN NEEDS THE PRESENCE OF GOD: Adam’s life started in the garden with the presence of God. This tells us that the man needs the presence of God in his life. We can’t stress this enough, man cannot fulfil his divine purpose without God.

When God put Adam in the garden, he taught him to name a thing. Again, to name a thing is to convey meaning, purpose, and offer identity. Scripture says, “And out of the ground the LORD God formed every beast of the field and every fowl of the air; and brought them unto Adam to see what he would call them: and whatsoever Adam called every living creature, that was the name thereof. 

And Adam gave names to all cattle, and to the fowl of the air, and to every beast of the field” (Genesis 2:19-20).

2. THE MAN NEEDS TO UNDERSTAND GOD’S DESIGN: God has given man the assignment to have dominion. To have dominion means to rule, govern, and administrate. Understanding dominion can be found in our kingship as believers, walking in spiritual authority, and taking hold of our responsibility to be good stewards.

God has built in the man a spiritual matrix having the ability to fulfil his design. In other words, what you were born to do is built into your design. Look at it this way. A bird doesn’t need to attend a seminar on how to fly. He was born to fly. Neither does a fish have to go to a conference to learn how to swim. He was born to swim. The ability to fly and swim were built into their design. 

For the bird to fly, however, requires the bird to get in the air. For the fish to swim requires the fish to get into the water. It’s the same with the man. 

3. THE MAN NEEDS SEXUAL INTIMACY: 
There are five types of intimacy: Emotional, Intellectual, Physical, Experiential, and Spiritual. Sexual intimacy supplies elements of all five especially a strong sense of belonging together.

4. THE MAN NEEDS WORK: God created the man and put him in the garden to work. The man needs to work. It’s in his spiritual DNA. Man desires meaningful work because work fulfils elements of the dominion mandate. In work, you can find leadership, production, and management. Work is the atmosphere to fly or swim for the man. Like the birds and the fish, the man needs the right environment to thrive. 


That environment is found in the presence of the Holy Spirit, in the secret place of prayer, in a Holy Spirit filled the church, and in meaningful work.

5 THE MAN NEEDS RESPECT: The man also needs respect, not love. Where a woman needs love, the man needs respect. Respect is a positive feeling given to someone held in high esteem or regard. It conveys a sense of admiration and value toward someone. Respect is also the process of honouring someone by exhibiting care, concern, or consideration for their needs or feelings. In other words, respect means to be admired, looked up to, and honoured. This need to be valued is built into the man’s nature. Sarah understood this and called Abraham Lord (1 Peter 3:6). 

Wives have no problem submitting to their husbands when their husbands act like the Lord because submission has nothing to do with force. Submission is a choice.
