The Home That God Builds

| By Lilly Reuben |

It is possible for parents to work in vain, unless we build on the strong foundation of our Lord Jesus Christ, so that it can stand firm in the time of trouble. When all our plans, dreams and hopes center around His values, what we do and how we live are determined by His word.

When a house is built on a strong foundation, there will be Joy, Peace and Victory within the walls. God is the Master Architect of our family.

The hymn says it best, “On Christ the solid Rock I stand, all other ground is sinking sand”.

Our parenting will be effective if we do it in the Lord’s way and not in our way. To do it in the Lord’s way, we must have a relationship with God, our work and effort should align in God’s way. As Parents, we need to immerse ourselves in God’s word - to know, understand, believe, and put into practice the truth that we learn into our parenting.

So, unless we root ourselves in the Lord, our work will fail to glorify God in the life of our children.

Parents, can your parenting be defined as the work of the Lord? If so, we can rest assured that our parenting will not be in vain. Knowing that children are a reward from the Lord, as Parents we need to be aware that we are caretakers, to help them bring glory to our God in their lives and being aware of their crucial needs, which are significance, security, and self-worth.

Embracing His Kingdom and His Will means to prioritize God’s will and God’s Kingdom above all other things in life. It involves seeking a closer relationship with God, by living according to His teaching and aligning our lives with His purpose and values so that He can guide us to be a blessing and to reflect His love in our lives.

1 Corinthians 15:58 says 'Be steadfast, immovable, always abounding in the work of the Lord knowing that in the Lord your labor is not in vain.' {ESV}

It’s time to rethink, reevaluate, so that Jesus can rebuild.
