My dear Brothers and sisters in Christ, I greet and bless everyone in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ. The blessed word that God has given you for today is from the book of Isaiah 8:18 “ Behold, Heream I, and the children whom the Lord hath given me are for signs and for wonders in Israel” .
One day God asked prophet Isaiah to write down a name on a paper. He did not know the reason for writing the name. But he obeyed the words of God. Later, he got married and a son was born to them. He named his son with that name. Only then did he realize that God was going to bless him with a son.
God has a plan and purpose for each and every one of you. You may not realize His plan for you. But He takes you through His route. When Isaiah was blessed with a son, he said, “Lord me and my children whom you gave me will remain as wonders and signs in Israel.” When he stated these words there was completeness in his heart about his life, his family, his children and about his ministry.
God expects that your sons may be as plants grown up in their youth, and that your daughters may be as pillars sculptured in palace style. All this is possible only when your family stays in unity and oneness of the mind. Children and parents must be together in a friendly atmosphere. Parents must share their experience with their children. There should be no hidden agenda between the husband and wife. Only then such families can strive together. If not they tend to split apart. God wants to maintain peace within your walls and prosperity within your palaces.
In some families children become a real burden to their parents. Through their bad behavior they bring disgrace and shame to their parents instead of being a blessing to them. Instead of being a sign and wonder in the midst of the family members, they have been so indifferent in their lives. The Bible says, Train up a child in the way he should go, and when he is old, he will not depart from it.
It is the responsibility of every parent to grow up their children in the fear of the Lord. Because the fear of the Lord is the beginning of wisdom and knowledge. The Lord has promised to bless your children. He says, All your children shall be taught by the Lord and great shall be the peace of your children. In righteousness you shall be established. How awesome is our God! He blesses your children with a bright future. He takes care of their education, their Profession, their marriage life and leads them all through their life. Therefore, you need to pray for your children’s welfare. Ask God, “Lord, when will I see a change in the life of my son or daughter? When will my children turn from their wrong doings? When will we as a family live in harmony? The Lord who made heaven and earth Bless you from Zion. God says, But from this day forward I will bless you. May the Lord bless you and keep you and your family for His glory.
God bless you.
Our loving heavenly Father, we thank You for this blessed day. Lord we thank You for blessing my children with a good family. May they inherit the blessings of God in their families. Help them to grow their children in the fear of the Lord. May they have a better understanding among themselves. Lord avoid all misunderstanding that shoot up in their lives. Grant unity and peace in the families. In Jesus name we pray,
