Today’s passage is a short Psalm that teaches us that a good family life is the reward for following God. My brother, my sister, we are in the end times and the Bible says: “There will be terrible times in the last days. People will be lovers of themselves, lovers of money, boastful, proud, abusive, disobedient to their parents, ungrateful, unholy, without love, unforgiving, slanderous, without self-control…, brutal, not lovers of the good, treacherous, rash, conceited, lovers of pleasure rather than lovers of God—having a form of godliness but denying its power. ” (2 Timothy 3:2-4). Honestly, don’t we see some of these traits so close to us not to say within our homes these days?
My friend, unless Jesus is the true head of your home, there cannot be peace in your home. It’s easy to blame people around us; it’s easier to see the mistakes of others. But the truth remains: the values outlined in God’s Word include love, service, honesty, integrity and prayer. If those ingredients lack within your home, your home will be hectic. As you read this meditation, you may wonder where to start. Well, reading and obeying God’s Word is a good place to start to make your family all that it should be… and it is much cheaper than a psychologist, a doctor or any sleeping or anti-depressant pill you may take to avoid seeing the reality.
You know, a man cannot remove the disorder Satan can bring to destroy a family. Only the one who defeated the devil can and that one is Jesus. Therefore, no matter what is going on in your family, stop trying, withdraw in prayer and make Jesus it’s head from this very day. Then you will see what happens because God’s promises never fail when we fear Him: “Blessed are all who fear the Lord, who walk in obedience to him. You will eat the fruit of your labor; blessings and prosperity will be yours. Your wife will be like a fruitful vine within your house; your children will be like olive shoots around your table. Yes, this will be the blessing for the man who fears the Lord.” (verses 2-4)… Amen, Lord Jesus. Stay blessed in Jesus’ name.
