Thank be to our God, Who answers the prayers of the righteous. When we call, He will answer us. So call upon Him this day and see the miracle working God working in that situation. Even dead situations, He is God. He has the final say in every matter. Except when a matter is cause by Him as in the case of the fig tree (Mk 11:13;20) if that is not your case, press on brethren, don’t give up, our God honour those that honour Him. If you are one of them, read the message below to discover how but if you are yet to give your life to Jesus, click here to accept Him now to belong to this family of God.
I will honor those who honor Me,
but those who despise Me will be disgraced.—1 Samuel 2:30
One of the many truths of the kingdom of God is that if we will honor God, He will honor us. If, however, we dare to treat Him disrespectfully, we will also be treated as least in His kingdom. The initiative rests with us. Our response to God determines His response to us.
Eli had been the priest of Israel for many years, and he knew the standards for righteous living that God required. Yet Eli faced a dilemma, for his sons were living in direct opposition to God. As their father, Eli had to decide whom he would honor. He could not defer to his immoral and ungodly sons and also exalt the God he served. By default, Eli chose to honor his sons, for he did not insist that their behavior conform to God’s standards. Eli would have pleaded that he still loved God but that he simply could not bring honor to God with his family. Yet God viewed Eli’s behavior differently (1 Sam. 3:13–14). Eli revealed his own heart when he failed to honor God before the people of Israel by the way he dealt with his sons. This is why God punished Eli and his sons severely (1 Sam. 4:17–18).
God is not pleased if you praise Him at church but not at your workplace. It is not acceptable for you to revere God when you are with other Christians but not in your school or neighborhood. He expects you to honor Him completely, with your words, with your actions, with your life. If you honor Him, He will honor you.
Surprised? Can you compare the above scenario with Abraham, for God said, I know him, he will command his children and household after Me (Gen 19). Do God knows you? Can He affirm of your faithfulness? Do you have a prayer altar? How fervent is the fire on your altar? We have other altars set up in our homes unknowing to us and we fan it into brims of fire, but your prayer altar, how fervent is the fire? The Spirit of God is calling on you this day, make it fervent by praying to Him and let your children age notwithstanding be part of it including every member of your household as it was of the old.
The Lord is interested in the up bring of our children. He is interested in godly seed that is why He commanded us to be upright before Him (Mal 2:15; Heb 13:4). We are also to tell our children of our personal encounter with Him as we go through life. The land mark and the memorials of the children of Israel God commanded to tell their generations yet unborn (Ex 10:2; 13:8-14; Deut 4:9-10; 6:20-21;12:18;Joel 1:3), how well are you preserving yours? All these are achievable at the prayer altar. Read more below:
“Tell ye your children of it, and let your children tell their children, and their children another generation.” Joel 1:3
In this simple way, by God’s grace, a living testimony for truth is always to be kept alive in the land—the beloved of the Lord are to hand down their witness for the gospel, and the covenant to their heirs, and these again to their next descendants.
This is our first duty, we are to begin at the family hearth: he is a bad preacher who does not commence his ministry at home. The heathen are to be sought by all means, and the highways and hedges are to be searched, but home has a prior claim, and woe unto those who reverse the order of the Lord’s arrangements.
To teach our children is a personal duty; we cannot delegate it to Sunday School Teachers, or other friendly aids, these can assist us, but cannot deliver us from the sacred obligation; proxies and sponsors are wicked devices in this case: mothers and fathers must, like Abraham, command their households in the fear of God, and talk with their offspring concerning the wondrous works of the Most High. Parental teaching is a natural duty—who so fit to look to the child’s well-being as those who are the authors of his actual being?
To neglect the instruction of our offspring is worse than brutish. Family religion is necessary for the nation, for the family itself, and for the church of God. By a thousand plots Popery is covertly advancing in our land, and one of the most effectual means for resisting its inroads is left almost neglected, namely, the instruction of children in the faith. Would that parents would awaken to a sense of the importance of this matter.
It is a pleasant duty to talk of Jesus to our sons and daughters, and the more so because it has often proved to be an accepted work, for God has saved the children through the parents’ prayers and admonitions. May every house into which this volume shall come honour the Lord and receive His smile.
May He deliver you from the mire clay, set your feet upon the ROCK and ensure your goings. I prophesy a NEW BREATH into your life in the Name of Jesus. Amen! May the Lord also grant you and your household your heart desires as you pray this day in Jesus Name, Amen!
Remain blessed in the Lord.
