FAMILY OF GOD, “WORTH CONSIDERING” 12/19/19, (Across my desk this morning.)
|“God sets the solitary in families…” (Psalm 68:6, NKJV)|
|He Places The Solitary In Families|
Most everyone goes through times in life when they feel lonely or wonder where they belong. God designed family to always be a place of love and acceptance. Maybe you didn’t come from an environment like that, or maybe you’ve been away from your family. Maybe they are no longer around. God still desires to meet that need for family. The Scripture says that He is the Father to the fatherless, and He places the solitary in families. God wants to give you a circle of people whom you can trust and who will embrace and accept you. If you need family today, ask God to meet that need and show you where you belong. Or maybe, you are the one who can open your home and heart to someone who is alone. The point is that God loves family. He designed family for a purpose. Jesus said in Matthew 12 that those who do God’s will are His family. When you are part of the family of God, you are never alone! He promises to never leave you nor forsake you. He promises to fill you with His peace and joy so that you can live as an overcomer all the days of your life!
|A Prayer for Today|
“Father in heaven, thank You for showing me Your design for family. Thank You for accepting and embracing me always. Show me how I can reach out and be an example of family in someone else’s life.”
For me this is a most important subject. First off, when we become a True Christian (as there are many counterfeits.) Our new family is no longer biological but becomes spiritual. Christ Jesus was very clear about this. Of course it is great when your family is both. But often, it is not. Often when a person becomes a true Christian and begins to walk in the light as HE is in the light, often family member become very destructive enemies. “
