Text: John 3:27

27: John answered and said, A man can receive nothing, except it be given him from heaven.

The desire of everyone is to have a glorious home. Parents want to see their children prosper, the building of a glorious home cannot be outside God. Joshua understood and that is the reason he said in Joshua 24:15; And if it seem evil unto you to serve the Lord, choose you this day whom ye will serve; whether the gods which your fathers served that were on the other side of the flood, or the gods of the Amorites, in whose land ye dwell: but as for me and my house, we will serve the Lord.
He understood that if his family will be blessed it must be by the Lord, building God’s consciousness in our lives and the lives of children is the ticket to having a glorious home. You and I can only be established in God, our children can fulfil their destines in God, as we give attention to their studies we should in the same vein be conscious of growing their spiritual life.
Joshua was not going to be a man of God like Eli, who was an high priest, but his sons were wayward. He sees it as his responsibility to ensure his family members serve God. It is like you ensuring all your family members are graduates, we should raise God fearing family members just as we intend to raise lawyers, doctors, accountant etc.
Getting our children committed to God is no distraction to building a glorious career for them. I remember those of us that were committed to the kingdom business in school, we are not failures in life, I can count a number of us then that people thought we know nothing except bible, we excel in our studies we are doing well today to the glory of God. There is no way anyone could separate us from fellowship and evangelism. Serving the Lord does not make anyone a failure. Education without God can’t bring success in life.
Bringing God’s grace upon your home; you just set the pace by serving God wholeheartedly, set the pace of holiness in your home, encourage your children to follow suit, have a day to wait upon the Lord presenting your family to God. Let your family bring glory to God.
Teaching God’s word in the home brings every member of the family to the consciousness of God. Correct your children using the bible, let them know that it is not your word but the word of God, and it must be obeyed.
Committing your family plans to God is a way of inviting God in the affairs of the family. Before you buy land, build a house, make an investment, seek the face of God and you can be sure you get divine support and his grace will be available for your home.
One point I mustn’t forget to mention here is INTERCESSION, intercede for all members of the family, ask God to visit each member of the family, pray for the salvation of their souls. God bless you.
* As for me and family, we will serve the Lord.
Proverbs 28, Acts 12.
