RAISING A GODLY FAMILY

Memorize :Therefore shall a man shall leave his father and his mother and shall cleave unto his wife; and they shall be one flesh. Gen. 2:24

Devotional Reading: Genesis. 2:7-24

A glorious or fulfilled family life can only be obtained when the family is Godly. The presence of God is what brings fulfilment which is part of your heritage in Christ Jesus. God established marriage for the purpose of making life good and enjoyable for man. He didn’t institute it as a hazard which some people think it is. Marriage was designed by God to make life complete for man. Marriage is not to be endured, it is to be enjoyed, this can only be achieved when God is at the centre of your marriage. Marriage is not a “necessary evil” as many have come to conclude, because of their personal experiences or observations of other relationships. Marriage is honourable in all and glorious as seen in Hebrews 13:4. Your wife or husband cannot be your enemy; the devil is the one behind the problems in your marriage. Whatever is not working well in and around your marriage is a direct manifestation of the works of the devil, you must not be ignorant of the devices of the enemy – 2 Corinthians 2:11.

After God created the heavens and the earth, including the institution of marriage, God affirmed that it was “very good”. He cannot, therefore, be the One behind your family crises. Satan is the enemy of everything good in our lives, he is anti God and particularly envious of marriages. He goes about perverting it and causing havoc in homes, because that is the easiest way to hinder man’s divinely ordained dominion on earth. The antidote to prevent Satan from injuring your marriage, is to build your marriage on Christ the solid rock, I pray that your home will continue to experience the supernatural presence of God that brings love, peace and Joy in the name of Jesus.

A fulfilled family life includes raising godly children. Not only do you enjoy love, peace and joy from your spouse, but also have godly children that are not sources of problem to the society. The bible says “blessed is the man that feareth the Lord that delighteth greatly in his commandments. His seed shall be mighty upon earth: the generation of the upright shall be blessed. Psalms 112:1-2. God want your marriage to be fruitful, that was the first pronunciation of God when he created man, “Be fruitful” Genesis: 1:27-28. You were created by God to be fruitful and multiply and have dominion, not to be barren and certainly not to be fighting each other God tested you in heaven before releasing you to the earth and found you fit for his glory here on earth.

Any form of unfruitfulness or marital conflict in your marriage is not from God, it does not profit God, He cannot be pulling down what he has built. He has not changed His mind, about you, Jeremiah 29:11.

I decree concerning every couple that are married but without children, or experiencing one form of conflict or the other, as the LORD liveth, by this time next year you will carry your baby and your marriage will enjoy peace and harmony, you will not see that problem in your marriage again in Jesus name.

From today, I pray that your family will enjoy peace, fruitfulness and multiplication of great and mighty things, including peace and joy in the mighty name of Jesus.

Prayer point: O LORD, breathe on my marriage and let every dead bone of glory start to live again in Jesus name.

Key Dose: I Prophesy upon these bones of glory, and say unto them, O ye dry bones, hear the word of the LORD and live.
