      The word family is not mentioned in the Bible as much as the related word ‘house’ or ‘household‘. Family is frequently used throughout the Bible to signify the historical origin. A family might be a tribe or even a nation. In Acts 3:25 (NKJV) the promise to Abraham is quoted ‘in your seed shall all the families of the earth be blessed‘.

      This is so significant because Jesus was apart of that seed in the flesh. Which says not only will Israel families benefit from that but also your family.

      I would say within this last decade families have taken a major blow. The assault that has been committed physically looks like the institution of the family is loosing. However, the great news is that no weapon formed against us shall prosper. The family is so important today that we have to make up in our mind that we are willing to fight for what family represents, what family stands for, and what makes up a family.

      When you‘re ready to acquire what God has for you, many times you won’t be able to just walk into it; sometimes we have to fight for it. That’s why you don’t have time for folks who are jealous of your family when they don’t know how hard you had to fight to get where you are today. There was a time you almost lost heart, there was a time you almost walked out, there was a time you almost gave up, but to God be the glory.

      2 Corinthians 4:17 (NKJV) “For our light affliction, which is but for a moment, worketh for us a far more exceeding and eternal weight of glory; While we look not at the things which are seen, but at the things which are not seen for the things which are seen are temporal; but the things which are not seen are eternal“.

      You now understand that every affliction you went through was only for a moment even though at times it seem like it was lasting forever.

      I want to make a declaration and say keep fighting! Keep fighting for your family. Whether you‘re fighting for your marriage; fighting for your family; or fighting for your future; just keep fighting! Don’t you lose heart, and don’t you give up!

      This is your month of transformation, because you realize that your family is important and they are a blessing from God.

      Scripture Of The Day: "For our light which are seen, but at the things which are not seen for the things which are seen are temporal; but the things affliction, which is but for a moment, worketh for us a far more exceeding and eternal weight of glory; While we look not at the things which are not seen are eternal." - 2 Corinthians 4:17 (NKJV)
