Beloved saint, has it ever occurred to you that planning is one factor which distinguishes between “a wishful thinking and purposeful accomplishment”. It is a factor that differentiates between an achiever and mediocre. Working out there as a businessman or woman or pursuing a given career without adequate planning and care of your home is actually planning for an ultimate failure.
The Holy Bible attests to the fact that excessive pursuit of money is the sure and easy way to destruction. (1 Tim 6:10) “For the love of money is a root of all kinds of evil, for which some have strayed from the faith in their greediness and pierced themselves through with many sorrows.”
Money may buy such physical things as bed but not sleep / books but not brains / food but not appetite / building but not home / Bible but not Christ / luxury but not happiness / church building but not salvation.
Money cannot buy you those essential things that can only be obtained through a close walk with God. Money cannot buy joy, peace, hope, contentment, divine protection, answer to prayer and eternal life. Money cannot serve as a sure foundation for the stability of your home.
Frank Craig declared that, “A man’s house is his fortress in a warring world.” Goethe also affirmed that, “of all human relationships none are more vital and enduring than those of home and family”. Recently, a popular philanthropist and accomplished business magnate referred to his wife as “a sanctuary where he runs into whenever there is the scourging heat of trouble or distress from without”. Of course this will not go down well to those men who feel that their wives are the thorn in their flesh or the source of their failures and defeat in the affairs of life. Believers, always remember that, (Pro 18:10) “The name of the LORD is a strong tower; the righteous run to it and are safe.”
Beloved husbands and wives, know most assuredly that whatever fame, fortune, privileges, social status and position you may have attained or will attain in the society should not be a soothing substitute for your role in the family. You are the central factor in your home. Your home is your primary place of assignment.
The onus is on you to give your children a befitting and godly heritage. You are to help your spouse realize and fulfill God’s entire purpose for his / her life. Encourage your spouse to succeed in his / her chosen career or profession. You can ignite a sense of eternal gratitude towards God in the hearts of all within your home because He has made you a jewel of inestimable value.
Beloved wife and mother, you are the anointed jewel in your home. Yes I prophesy to you now that you are! You can be that jewel from now on. You must be and God will help you to be one in Jesus’ name, Amen!
Come on all ladies, shout it aloud with me now, “I AM THE ANOINTED JEWEL OF GOD IN MY HOME IN JESUS’ NAME AMEN!!!”
Remember that you are loved and appreciated, Remain blessed and rapturable, Yours to reach this generation with the Gospel,
