You are welcome to another exciting time in God’s presence. I know by now you are already swimming in the wisdom on how to sustain your family in God’s way. My prayer is that, God will make something great out of your family in Jesus’ name.
Last time, I discussed some steps to take to sustain your family. One of them is, by laying your foundation on the Rock, which is making Jesus Christ the central focus in your home.
A wife should submit to her husband, who must play the leadership role in the home, by providing for his family.
Today, we shall continue in discussing what we need to do in sustaining our home. Below are some other steps to sustaining your home.
Wisdom- The Principal Thing
Wisdom is the principal tool for sustenance. Proverbs 4:7 says: Wisdom is the principal thing; therefore get wisdom: and with all thy getting get understanding.
Both the man and woman in the home need to constantly ask God for wisdom in handling the day-to-day affairs in the home. An act of foolishness on the part of any of them, may affect the stability of the home. Wisdom tells you when to talk and when to keep quiet. Do you know it is possible to say the right thing but at the wrong time, thereby cause instability in the home? Proverbs 24:3 says: Through wisdom is an house builded; and by understanding it is established:
For your home to be sustained, you need wisdom. This wisdom comes from God and whenever you need it, you can ask Him for it.
Always Give God Glory
As you take the steps mentioned above, and enjoy the peace and blessing of God in your home, constantly give all the glory back to God. By fulfilling your own part of the covenant, you are building but in the ultimate, God is the One building and sustaining your home for you (Hebrew 3:4).
All your efforts to build and sustain your home will be in vain outside God Himself. Constantly acknowledge Him as the only reason behind the sustenance of your home, then He will make it a better place for you!
However, for you to be able to apply all these virtues mentioned above, you need Jesus Christ in your life. You will do this by confessing your sins and accepting Him as your Lord and Saviour. Are you ready for this new birth experience? If you are ready, please say this prayer of faith with me: “Dear Lord Jesus, I come to You today as a sinner. Forgive me of my sins. I believe You died and rose on the third day for my sins. 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! Call or write, and share your testimonies with me through email@example.com; OR 07026385437 and 08141320204.
