The truth of it when it comes to a family being one is, all members of the home being at their duty posts.
Years back I was made to realise that we all, as children (each children in fact) and parents (each parent) all have our parts to play in making the home unshakable.
We all have our duty posts called forth by God unto us to attend to, by His power in us. Yes, we have learnt a lot of lessons on parents loving, providing etc and children obeying and respecting their parents and all, which is good. But really we all as well, have our spiritual duty posts to stand in (occupy – not just you knowing but acting in it). The one God has created you for, called and shown to you to occupy.
Even if you are in a disorientated home, you still have a pillar at least to uphold. The truth of it is the devil knows this and makes us lackadaisical when it comes to upholding and living in this truth.
Yes, the home is your first ministry and to all lives in it: the success you attain in being part of it (the home you are in) is a link (a major one in fact) to your ministry unto others (those not part of that core unit – family).
#Your success inside your home is a means to your success outside there.
Even if not all in your family are occupying the required positions yet, with prayers and dedication to your pillar post, I believe it always gets better (no matter how long it might take). I believe it always gets better – 1 Kings 18:41-46, do read. 👈
Let’s all occupy our posts today and stand as a pillar that we are called to be – always knowing He that has called us would definitely do it.. (The one who chose you will do that for you. You can trust him. 1 Th. 5:24 ERV)
It’s amazing right 👆, God Himself would work it out in and through you. This verse is a major one for me. God is always at work in us if only we believe!!.. If only you do!. 👆
All you need do is take a leap of faith in Him, trusting His abilities and not yours. I have seen years of struggles in different homes and we need no longer give the devil space cos we failed to occupy our spiritual pillar posts. Let’s rise up and take our stand in God in our homes and see a body of Christ established as He desires in our homes – 1 Corinthians 12:18-20 👈
God bless you. I believe the Holy Spirit would enlighten us all on this.. Selah! 🙏😍
