Message: – Open Heaven 7 October 2019 Monday Daily Devotional
For those who belong to Jesus Christ, our understanding of
family life should not be dictated by social media, TV or preconceived notions.
The word of God alone provides us the template we are to model our family and
home upon. Unfortunately, a lot of people have deviated from the precepts of
the Bible regarding the way things are done in their family. In some families,
children are wayward and parents don’t seem to be bothered about it.
Some fathers are irresponsible men who go about chasing
after strange women, while some mothers are unforgiving, bitter and over time
have become cold towards their husbands. God definitely didn’t design homes to
be like that! We therefore need to continuously work at building holy, godly
and Christ-honouring homes. However, building a godly home requires conscious
effort. The devil doesn’t want such homes to exist, and so he puts distractions
and bad examples everywhere to deter us from building our homes the way God designed
it to be. The good news is, with God, all things are possible to us who
How then do we build godly homes? Psalm 34:11 says:
“Come, ye children, hearken unto me: I will teach you the fear of the Lord.”

The Bible says the fear of the Lord is the beginning of
wisdom. Parents must teach their children to fear the Lord, because the fear of
God is a compass that guides families into making the right decisions and
choices in life. To fear the Lord is to acknowledge and reverence Him at all
times. A family that does not fear God will not serve Him.
A godly home requires a life of separation from the dictates
of worldly norms. Although others might be doing wrong things, you can’t and
won’t do them because you are peculiar unto God. Every day, Christian families
have to draw the line and separate themselves from the increasing sinfulness
and wickedness of this world. Parents have to continuously remind their
children that they are in the world but not of the world, and so they are never
to behave like the children of the world. I pray that all our homes will become
godly homes in Jesus’ Name.
Prayer Point – Open Heaven 7 October 2019
Let your children always know that your family stands for Jesus Christ in all things.
