Unveiling The Secrets of A Successful Home (3)
You are welcome to another time in the presence of God. I want you to see God as a Father, Who is interested in the success of your home. He has put in place all the tools that you can use to achieve your goal of success.
I have discussed about your foundation, which must not be contrary to the laid down principles of God. Also, you cannot do without prayer, which is the only way through which you can communicate with God. This is a summary of what we studied so far.
This week, I shall be Unveiling The Secret of The Word Of God In A Successful Home.
Another way by which you can obtain success in your home is through The Word of God. The importance of the Word of God in a successful home cannot be over-emphasized. You must make relevant discoveries from God's Word, because discovery is what leads to recovery. Locate what the Word of God says concerning any issue in your home. God has made available His Word to you, but you must be able to sit down and locate your place in it.
The Word of God says: And I wept much, because no man was found to open and to read the book… (Revelation 5:4). Until The Book is opened, failure at the home front will continue. God is not moved by your tears; He is moved by His Word. You can neither use your tear to harass God, nor bribe Him by weeping. You only gain access to His blessings by the understanding and application of His Word.
The Word of God is as powerful as if you are hearing God speak to you audibly. Know God personally and daily develop your relationship with Him, through deep Word study. Studying His Word will make you familiar with His voice.
Fill your heart with the Word of truth. Let the Word of God be your guiding light. Open The Book and let every shame roll away. Instead of calling on those friends of yours that might not know better than their experience, go to the Word of the Alpha and Omega of your home. Enough of guesswork, enough of trials and errors.
Invest in anointed books of proven men of God, whose lives and testimonies are real, invest in the messages of renowned men of God, who are already successful in their marriages, and devour them. Saturate your spirit-man with Godly materials. The Word of God says: Study to show thyself approved unto God, a workman that needeth not to be ashamed, rightly dividing the word of truth (2 Timothy 2:15).
The only way to avoid shame at home is to study. If you don't want reproach to continually hang around you, study. God says the only way out of shame is to study and apply yourself to the Word of truth. Are you having problems in any area in your home? Sit down with your Bible and anointed books and locate solutions to the problems.
Your spouse is not as difficult as you think The Bible says: Likewise, ye husbands, dwell with them according to knowledge, giving honour unto the wife, as unto the weaker vessel, and as being heirs together of the grace of life; that your prayers be not hindered (1 Peter 3:7). This knowledge can only be obtained in the Bible.
Fix your eyes on the Word. In the natural, if you fix your eyes on a particular object consistently for a long time, the object tends to look bigger in your eyes. The more you look at the object, the bigger it seems. It's the same with the Word of God. As you keep your focus on the Word, it is magnified more than your physical problems, and eventually, it swallows up those weaknesses in your spouse, one by one, until you see them no more.
As you focus on the Word, keep meditating on what you have seen. See glorious home, see blessing and joy; apply the knowledge obtained to your situation and circumstances, and let those words form a pattern for your living. God of restoration will perfect all that pertains to your home and family this year, in Jesus' name!
Before you can fully benefit from the Word of God, you must be born again. The right place to begin from is a personal relationship with God, through Jesus Christ. If you want to start this relationship right now, you can please say this prayer: "Lord Jesus Christ, I come to You today. I am a sinner. I cannot help myself. Forgive me of my sins and cleanse me with Your blood. Deliver me from sin and satan, to serve the living God. I believe You died for me and on the third day, You rose that I might be justified. I accept You as my Lord and Saviour. Make me a child of God today. Thank You for accepting me into Your Kingdom".
Congratulations, you are now born again! I believe that you will begin to experience the reality of the price that Jesus paid for your sins at Calvary. All-round rest and peace are guaranteed you, in Jesus' Name!
