Family Life - Part Two

Good Morning Family!!!

I love that feeling, that every time, we're together, it's like a 'family reunion'.

Today, we're on part two of our new series: Family Life

Heavenly Father,

Help us Lord, that we should pour out our hearts like water before You and lift up our hands to You for the lives of our children. Lord, we recognize that praying daily for our children is one of the most important things we can do for them; and with them.
They are the future generations who will take the gospel to the lost and fulfill the great commission. Teach us, to put upon our children the full armor of Your Word and we thank You, in faith believing, that they will be able to stand against the plots of the enemy.
In Jesus' name
Amen

Scripture say,
"Unless the Lord builds the house,
They labor in vain who build it;
Unless the Lord guards the city,
The watchman stays awake in vain.

It is vain for you to rise up early,
To sit up late,
To eat the bread of sorrows;
For so He gives His beloved sleep."

Psalm 127:1-2

Today's message we'll be focusing on "Building Up Our Families"

Like all building projects, they begin with a plan.
Isn't that true?

Buildings that have stood the test of time each began with correct materials on a solid rock foundation. If you want your family to be a long-lasting dynasty, you must begin properly and follow a strong foundation, God’s plan, without change or compromise in materials. Jesus is the rock, and His Word is the plan.

Since Adam and Eve’s decision to know evil along with the good, men have been trying to determine good and bad according to their own thinking. The first trick of the devil, causing Eve to doubt that God meant what He said, a technique that is still working today, but it does not have to keep on doing so. We have the answer, God's Word, but we must use it.

Every one began as a member of a family somewhere in the world. The family was designed to fulfill some very important roles, and it is, still today, responsible for each one of them:

The care, protection, and nurture of infants;
Teaching children the rules and regulations of their culture/society;
Helping all members learn how to give and receive affection and love;

According to Compton’s Interactive Encyclopedia, 1995, “It is doubtful whether infants could survive—much less develop into mentally, physically, and socially healthy human beings—outside the intimate network of the family.”

Why are millions of babies born every year with no idea who the father is?
Why do millions of young girls give themselves abortions or go to clinics that help them get rid of these "unwanted" children? 
Why are fathers not found beside these young mothers, giving encouragement and support? 
Why are so many fathers bailing out on the children they help to bring into this world?

The answer is simple really, our culture has chosen to ignore God’s plan for families.

Even more sad than that is the knowledge that many have never even known God’s plan for the family. Too many, of our families, do not even about God, or know that God cares enough to help them plan for their future. There may not have been an example of a godly family in their life and no training to prepare them for the responsibilities of raising a family. They have been taught to take care of themselves, solve their own problems, and fight for their rights.

Never considering God’s instructions. So they choose their own path, experiencing life time of sorrow, heartache, and even suicide.

It doesn’t have to be this way!
God has a plan for each of us, and it is found in His Word.
Take time to learn what God says about families.
Spend much time in prayer and discussion with your children.
Make prayer and Bible reading a priority in your family life, both privately and as a family.

Contrary to the many voices of this world tell you, shouting that your life is your own so do what you want to with it.

The Word of God is the only plan for families to build a strong foundation, truly experience love, and respect for one another.
Until we know God's love, we'll find ourselves willing to accept whatever love comes our way.
Not the love we deserve!

Removing the Word of God from our daily lives, our families, our children, growing up and raising our families in an ungodly life, well...The results speak for themselves!
 
According to the U.S. Department of Justice, a startling one in three children is without a father in the home in America.
Children growing up without fathers, often turn to gangs, drugs and suffer from low self esteem, are likely to be more aggressive, more likely to be depressed, more likely to be incarcerated and more likely to commit suicide!

According to Dr. Mark Borg Jr, PhD, psychoanalyst and author of "How We Use Dysfunctional Relationships to Hide From Intimacy", when children typically grow up fatherless there is an attempt by the child to compensate for whatever they feel, think, and believe is missing from the primary caregiver's life. As a result, it is not uncommon for children to develop care-taking routines in an attempt to care for the caretaker.

Girls are more likely to ally with the caregiver by developing routines designed to make that person feel capable of providing care. Fatherless boys will allow themselves to be the family scapegoat by bearing the responsibility for issues that are going wrong with the family system in general.

In closing....

We must look for answers in God’s Word, our only hope. It is amazing how clear the instructions for a healthy, productive family are inside its pages. We just need to follow them!

Remember, that the family was God’s idea in the first place!

"Yet you say, “For what reason?”
Because the Lord has been witness
Between you and the wife of your youth,
With whom you have dealt treacherously;
Yet she is your companion
And your wife by covenant."
Malachi 2:14

"Whoever divorces his wife and marries another commits adultery against her. And if a woman divorces her husband and marries another, she commits adultery."
Mark 10:10-12

No matter the culture, God’s plan will not fail, because it is built on the solid rock of God’s Word.

“Therefore whoever hears these sayings of Mine, and does them, I will liken him to a wise man who built his house on the rock."
Matthew 7:24

And now may the Lord bless you and keep you;

the Lord make His face shine upon you,
And be gracious to you;

The Lord lift up His countenance upon you,
And give you peace.

Now and forever, in Jesus' name
Amen

You Can't Quarantine The Word of God

" 35  Very early in the morning, while it was still dark, He got up, went out, and made His way to a deserted place. And He was praying there. 36  Simon and his companions went searching for Him. 37  They found Him and said, “Everyone’s looking for You!” 38  And He said to them, “Let’s go on to the neighboring villages so that I may preach there too. This is why I have come.” 39  So He went into all of Galilee, preaching in their synagogues and driving out demons. 40  Then a man with a serious skin disease came to Him and, on his knees, begged Him: “If You are willing, You can make me clean.” 41  Moved with compassion, Jesus reached out His hand and touched him. “I am willing,” He told him. “Be made clean.” 42  Immediately the disease left him, and he was healed. 43  Then He sternly warned him and sent him away at once, 44  telling him, “See that you say nothing to anyone; but go and show yourself to the priest, and offer what Moses prescribed for your cleansin
