Genesis 18:19 (KJV) For I know him, that he will command his children and his household after him, and they shall keep the way of the LORD, to do justice and judgment; that the LORD may bring upon Abraham that which he hath spoken of him.
Many of the men of reckon in the Bible were either dedicated in separation to or chosen by God as babies. All of these babies who eventually grew to become great leaders, deliverers, prophets and great men of God were strategically placed in homes. For example, Abraham received Isaac from the Lord; Isaac and Rebekah interceded for Jacob; Hannah gave Samuel to the Lord; Zacharias and Elizabeth were faithful servants of God, they gave birth to John the Baptist; A Levite who married another Levite gave birth to Moses, just to mention a few.
It is obvious that God is interested in homes (families), their seeds and how such seeds are nurtured. God seeks continuity of His plans and agenda, he hence seeks family such as Abraham’s who will do due diligence in committing whatever God has handed over to them to their children and children’s children.
Just like it was with Abraham, there are blessings that will be released only to homes that God knows will command their children and households after Him.
Will you donate your home to God so He can birth his purpose through it? God is searching for sons through whom He will manifest His manifold wisdom to principalities and power (Eph. 3:10).
Go into today remembering that God is particularly interested in homes that are committed to raising children who fear the Lord.
Lord, help me build a home that is a nurturing place for children that would fear and serve You. Amen.
