TEXT: PROVERBS 30:7-9
7 Lord, by thy favour thou hast made my mountain to stand strong: thou didst hide thy face, and I was troubled.8 I cried to thee, O Lord; and unto the Lord I made supplication.
9 What profit is there in my blood, when I go down to the pit? Shall the dust praise thee? shall it declare thy truth?
Key verse: Ecclesiastes 9:10 Whatsoever thy hand findeth to do, do it with thy might; for there is no work, nor device, nor knowledge, nor wisdom, in the grave, whither thou goest.
Some ministers mistakenly quit their jobs immediately they receive God’s call into ministry, thereby causing many sorrows in their families. Things become hard for the family and to eat becomes a challenge. Out of desperation, the family may be tempted to dip hands in things they ought to abstain from. They find themselves in this unfortunate situation because they did not ask from God. Get God’s expectation concerning your family. God who has called the head of the family is interested in the peace, unity and progress of that family. Jeremiah 29:11 For I know the thoughts that I think toward you, saith the LORD, thoughts of peace, and not of evil, to give you an expected end. Can peace, progress and unity be achieved in the family without money to meet the basic needs of the family? Money answers all things, so money has its role to play in families in order to achieve peace.
God is the one that prospers. Let Him be the one to lead you in the way to go or follow. Isaiah 48:17 Thus saith the LORD, thy Redeemer, the Holy One of Israel; I am the LORD thy God which teacheth thee to profit, which leadeth thee by the way that thou shouldest go. God teaches us to profit. He leads us by the way we should go. Care must be exercised for many men of God are no more in the faith because money has carried them away and that wind is still blowing till today. How then can a minister generate money and still stand to do the work of God? Paul who combined tent-making with ministerial duty is a good example. Find something legitimate to do to feed your household. Above all, let there be cooperation and oneness in the family in order to fully harness the family potential.
Thought for the day: Care for your family to avoid making yourself irrelevant.
Song for the day: Shepherd of my soul, I give You full control…
Bible reading for the day: Jeremiah 1-2; 2Thessalonians 2.
