Jeremiah 31:1 and 9
“…I will be the God of all the families of Israel, and they shall be My people. (V.9) I will cause them to walk by the rivers of waters in a straight way in which they will not stumble. For I am a Father to Israel.”
“Family” is the building block, the core unit of any nation. Healthy, growing, strong families whose marriages and homes are built on the rock solid foundation of God’s TRUTH are VITAL for a healthy society.
It makes sense why the family unit is under such attack today. Satan would love nothing more than to divide, separate, distract and dumb down this precious institution that God ordained. If he can destroy marriages (the foundation of family) and divide parents and children eliminating the opportunities to teach and train the next generation so they will grow strong in the Lord and emerge as healthy, passionate followers of Christ, he wins.
We MUST IDENTIFY his STRATEGY AND SAY, “NO WAY!” We must stir ourselves to fight to take the land that God has given us. He promises that as we place Him “in the center” of our lives, marriages and homes, HE WILL BE OUR GOD – HE WILL CAUSE US TO WALK BY RIVERS OF WATERS IN A STRAIGHT WAY IN WHICH WE WILL NOT STUMBLE!
Let’s take God at His word and ZEALOUSLY and EXPECTANTLY take Him up on His promises! A nation built on healthy families is a MAJOR KEY to this country becoming strong once again. It has nothing to do with the political climate we are facing and EVERYTHING TO DO WITH the climate, culture and TRUTH we are fighting for within our own 4 walls!
