PREVAILING VOICE DAILY.
16th May, 2020.
Topic: THE MAKING OF A HOME.
Text: Proverbs 14:1.
1: Every wise woman buildeth her house: but the foolish plucketh it down with her hands.
Let me take 2 dictionary meanings of home that will aid proper understanding of this subject.
1: A place where something began and flourished.
2: An environment offering affection and security.
Marriage brings about a home for a family, it is usually a lifetime agreement between 2 people of opposite sex; male and female. There must be a mutual understanding to build a home; an environment of affection and security. By the word ‘ affection ‘, it means it is not an environment of hostility, and cruelty, but where wrongs are easily overlooked
There are provisions for offences to be overlooked before they are committed. It is not the building that creates this, but the inhabitants in the building.
You must understand that the creative power of God in man helps him to achieve his wills that are in line with God’s will. First the desire to build a home must be obvious; strong will to have a family and an environment of affection and security.
This is a conscious effort, it can’t be achieved by coincidence, this is achieved by two determined individuals. Have you observed that some unbelievers run their homes smoothly for years while some pastors break up? This is because the unbelievers were determined to live together no matter what, while the so called pastors can’t tolerate somethings.
Somebody told his wife, ‘ tell me whatever happened even while we are marry I will understand, no issue ‘, they are still together till today. Another man wouldn’t put up with mere suspicion.
I once lived in the same compound with a family: the husband was a hooligan, and the wife was in the same class of his, on occasions, the man tried to chase his wife out for another woman to come in, but the woman will not accept, so determined to save her marriage, it is over 20 years now they are still together. The last time I saw the man I asked after his wife, he replied by saying, ‘ the woman will not just leave me, she has hooked me down ‘.
The determination to save your marriage is the first point here, be ready to be build a home, there are prices to pay for this. God will help you.
* I receive wisdom to build my home in Jesus name.
