Topic: HOME PLANNING
Text: Genesis 30:26-30 KJV
26 Give me my wives and my children, for whom I have served thee, and let me go: for thou knowest my service which I have done thee.
27 And Laban said unto him, I pray thee, if I have found favour in thine eyes, tarry: for I have learned by experience that the Lordhath blessed me for thy sake.
29 And he said unto him, Thou knowest how I have served thee, and how thy cattle was with me.
30 For it was little which thou hadst before I came, and it is now increased unto a multitude; and the Lord hath blessed thee since my coming: and now when shall I provide for mine own house also?
There are such words as Town planning where government authority have a designed plan or layout of how a town will look like, also Family planning where couples put measure in birth control. The phrase ‘ home planning ‘ also simply entails that individual have a proposed plan of the kind of family they want to build. This is essential especially for intending couples and married couples as well, if you don’t have a picture or plan of your kind of home in mind, then you may likely accept what the society can offer, what fate brings your way or even what the devil may bring against your home.
It is important for guys or ladies preparing to get married to plan the kind of home they desire to build, and subject it in line with what God has in mind for them, if you are conscious of this you will not just marry any guy or any lady that comes your way, you will not just give yourself cheap to any guy all because you just want to be married. Marriage is a life time journey and so you need to seriously get prepared.
Also intending couples in the process of courtship need to have a picture of the kind of home they want, so they are to spend their time praying and discussing about their upcoming home. Spend time to pray and discuss about their differences, likes and dislikes, passions, hobby, extended families, career, kind of environment they purpose to live, kind of friends they have e.t.c Be careful not to engage your courtship in just emotional attachment without getting yourself busy both spiritually and physically about your new home. Emotional attachment alone may lead to greater troubles not bargained for.
From our text above, Jacob asked Laban, when shall I provide for my own house also, it means he looked forward to his own home, he had laboured and served for 14years to get the kind of wife he wanted even when Laban deceived him, yet after 14 years he was still living with and serving his father in-law, Laban and so he was ready at this point to be fully responsible for his family and to raise the kind of home he desired without the influence of his father in-law anymore. As I conclude, home planning is essential for intending couples, it goes a long way in you raising a proper family. God bless you
* Help me to plan my home in accordance to your will.
