Position Yourself for God’s Blessings (PT 1)
Peace and blessings! With joy unspeakable full of glory, I welcome you into this awesome month. You shall enjoy God’s grace all through this month and beyond, in Jesus’ Mighty name!
I have good news for you. Good things are packaged for you all, in your homes, families, in the lives of your spouses, children, businesses, finances and careers this month. However, you must position yourself to be a partaker of these blessings. Today, I shall be showing you one way to do that.
Secure God’s Presence
The presence of Christ in any home guarantees all round blessings. Whenever Christ is present, He causes wonderful things to take place in the home, making it always a place of excitement and laughter, if you care to put Him first and let Him be the head of your home. If you let God be first in your home, He counsels you on what steps to take to ensure love, peace, joy and fulfilment.
Christ must be allowed to be a living presence in your home and not just an inscription or painting. There is a popular inscription in some families (especially Christian homes) which says, Christ is the Head of this home, the Unseen Guest at every meal, the Silent Listener to every conversation. Do you want to enjoy God’s blessings in your home? Make Christ the head of your home. How do you do that?
Get Your Family Saved
This is the first step to take in securing God’s blessings in your home. In other words, you must take a definite and practical step to be born again and to get your family members saved. The Word of God says, Jesus answered and said unto him, Verily, verily, I say unto thee, except a man be born again, he cannot see the kingdom of God (John 3:3). Salvation is not in Church attendance; it is one thing to be a member of a particular Church and it is another thing to be born again. You may have a family Church and bear a Christian name. These do not make you a born again Christian. Someone explained it like this: ‘Going to poultry on a daily basis does not make a man a chicken’. It will take undergoing a supernatural change for a man to become a chicken. Why then do some people think that going to Church daily and even sleeping in Church from morning till night make them Christians? It will take a supernatural change or operation for a sinner to be born again and to become a child of God!
Whether you are a member of a Church or you even take part in one of the activity groups in your local Church, the question is, are you born again? It is only after this that your Church attendance or the service group becomes relevant. Prior to this, it is just religion. If you want Christ to be the Head of your family, it comes by being born again, not by being religious. The Word of God says, Acquaint now thyself with Him, and be at peace; thereby good shall come unto thee (Job 22:21).
Parents, it is your duty to ensure that you do all in your power to make sure your children accept Jesus as their Lord and Saviour. Don’t think they are too young. I made this decision that Christ must be Head in my own family long ago and to the glory of God, it is not only my husband and me that are born again but also all our children. We have been enjoying unending peace and all-round blessings ever since. Jesus Christ, who has done this for me and my family, can do the same thing for you if you will let Him because He is not partial (Acts 10:34-35).
Put your faith now in God and your right hand on your chest and as I pray the power of God will reach them wherever they are and give you the miracle you desire because God says; ‘… thou shalt be saved, and thy house’ (Acts 16:31).
For every reader desiring this miracle of salvation for their household, I by the Holy Spirit break the power of sin and satan over their loved ones, in Jesus’ name and I command liberty and salvation to be their portion!
If you are reading this article today and you are not born again, you need to do so now before it is too late. Why not say this prayer of faith with me: Dear Lord Jesus, I come to You today. I am a sinner. Forgive me my sins and cleanse me with Your Blood. I accept You as my Lord and personal Saviour. Make me a child of God today. Thank You for delivering me from sin and satan to serve the blissful God and thank You for accepting me into Your Kingdom.
Congratulations! If you prayed this simple prayer of faith with me, you are now born again and a child of God. He loves you and will never leave you. Read your Bible daily, obey God’s Word and seek Christian fellowship (John 14:21).
