Woke up this morning to realise that God loves Family and if we are not living like a family, we are just not living God’s destiny.
The love of family unity was so important to the coming of Christ that Joseph was appointed the Father on earth. (Matthew 1:20-21)
When love and unity is in the home it equates to the peace of God.
Fathers have a special role that includes being sensitive to their wife and children.
Fathers needs to demonstrate patience, understanding, and exhibit wisdom of God as used by Joseph in faith.
Fathers need to deal with emotions of the family with a lot of tolerance.
(See Ephesians 5:25-33;Proverbs 22:6; Ephesians 6:4;Proverbs 23:24;Colossians 3:21)
***Listening is key and responding with the right attitude is Important***
Wife needs to remain sensitive to the emotions of the Father, aligning their thoughts and energy to the uplifting of their husband and inheritance. A Good wife makes her home a place of joy and happiness. (Proverb 31: 10-31)
Keep the love flowing at home and you are definitely in the right frame of mind to deal with the outside.
Marriage and raising a family is a lifetime learning process and staying the course is a lifetime achievement.
Do not bail out too soon, for the reward is the fulfilment of God’s plan to uplift you.
May the God give you the grace to be who he wants you to be and grant peace, joy and happiness into your relationship. May the grant you patience to stay the course and reap the benefit of family-hood to His glory and honour.
Living under God’s grace, guidance love & peace
